We checked in next door and didn't feel like going too far for dinner. The place was full and had a huge party for a celebration in the back room. The staff was very good, food was excellent. Decor is up to standard. When the "locals" go to "locals" you know it's going to be fine. It is.

Excellent food, but can be inconsistent. The building is beautiful, an old Courtenay home that has been a restaurant under several different owners over the years. The current owner has redone the kitchen and interior and deserves a try. When it is good the food is very good, although a bit expensive for Courtenay. The use all local foods, hence the name, and you know your are eating the best available. I did not care for my dessert but others have found it fine. Lovely setting with gardens and next to the river. In the winter I like to sit near the stone fireplace.

I have been to Locals several time for lunch and always found the food to be excellent. It is my understanding that as much as possible the food is local, hence the name. The service is very good and surroundings pleasant. I recommend it.

Above average food quality and presentation. Great decor and generally friendly staff, although I have had occasion where the server was not as attentive as they should be. I have also been seated next to a large "celebration" table which was placed in the middle of the dining room and took away from the privacy and intimacy of an individual/smaller group setting, however I would still return in the future for their outstanding food.

We have celebrated two birthdays at locals - the restaurant, staff and Chef St Pierre and his wife helped to make both of these unique and memorable occasions!
Amazing custom cakes were made by the pastry chef! The food was perfect and the Chef, his wife and the staff were very welcoming and gave us excellent service! This is also a lovely location. The second diner the restaurant was decorated for Christmas.
