New spot in Carmel Valley definitely worth a visit. We thought the summer panzanella with watermelon and cucumber was excellent, flavorful and worth the trip. We also tried the pork belly sliders. More pork loin than belly so we were a little disappointed but with unique almost Asian style buns. Dessert-two donuts in a bag with cinnamon sugar were better than the bread pudding which was not their best option. Joseph our waiter was personable and knowledgeable. We would try Lokal again for breakfast and/or lunch. They have an outdoor patio as well.

We reserved via Open Table. We even called in the afternoon to check that we could bring a dog and sit outside--and they confirmed. When we arrived, they claimed never to have got the reservation and said they did not have a place or enough food for us. We had to go elsewhere.

The food at Lokal's is interesting & delicious. We dined there on a weekend night. Unfortunately, once they got busy there wasn't enough waitstaff. Hopefully, if they continue to be busy, they will hire more help
