Lovely steaks and plenty of sides to choose from. Food was well prepared and delivered quickly by efficient staff.

Only drawback for me was the high prices of the wine.

It was my first visit to the Local Grill in Parktown. I would certainly go there again if I wanted to eat steak. A busy place with parking difficult to find. But once inside you will not regret it. If you are a first time visitor you would get a tour of the kitchen and cold room and an interesting lecture on how the steak is aged and prepared.

The Local Grill is in Parktown North at the busy intersection of 3rd and 7th Avenues. I would certainly advise booking as the place was packed when we visited at 8pm on a Thursday evening. We were grateful we had booked and our table was ready and waiting. Service was brisk and friendly and despite the excellent wine list they were happy to accommodate us with the two bottles we had brought with us. There are options on the menu other than steak but meat is the reason for coming and they offer some of the best available, both grain fed and grass fed beef according to your preferences. The steaks arrived after not too long a wait despite the restaurant being so busy and the other three were delighted with their choices. Regrettably, although I had asked for my rump to be cooked medium rare arrived medium to well. One of the managers was at my table in an instant, confirmed that my steak had been overcooked, apologised profusely and whisked it away promising a perfect steak within 4 minutes. It duly arrived, perfectly cooked, 4 minutes later.

At the end of our meal we were invited by one of the managers to visit the kitchen and to step inside the cold room for a chat about where their meat comes from, the ageing process and storage. Very interesting. A great steak house and one I shall be visiting regularly.

The Local Grill located on the corner of two streets has a lovely open feel about it. We shared starters and order a platter of grilled steak and chicken which was excellent. My host chose a Shiraz which I thought might be a bit overpowering but served slightly chilled it was beautiful!
