They have a very friendly staff and also very helpful with food selections. The food was excellent and well prepared. Nicely presented. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Everything was cooked to perfection. I went with a group of friends and we shared everything. The portions were large and easily shareable. We ordered the grilled calimari (fresh and delicious), the flank steak (well-seasoned and tender), the grilled shrimp ( perfect!!!) and the chicken shish (also perfect). Everything, including the vegetables was just right. If you like things spicier, ask for their homemade hot sauce. It’s delicious! We had wine, but we didn’t try dessert. Next time. I can’t wait to go back. (Service was also terrific).
Great food! Everything was fresh. My drink was awesome. One of my favorite places to eat.
I was having brunch with some friends I haven’t seen in awhile and we had a great time. The food was delicious. The staff was great, very attentive. Overall, we had a great meal and it was the perfect start to a great day.
great food, pleasant service, fair prices, what more can you expect?
wonderful server; food was ok; would go again if in neighborhood?
Just a great neighborhood restaurant with extremely fresh fish. Highly recommend the octopus and sea bass.
Highly recommend hummus, crab cakes, arugula and pear salad. Disappointed with the falafel and the octopus. Overall, very tasty. Lots of families there when we were there - very loud.
amazing service, very attentive
Was not blown away by either the food or the value. I have lived for many years in the middle east and I was just not that impressed with the food here. Not bad, but not great either and a bit expensive for what it is. Can do better at many other places in the city and actually in this neighborhood. Again, nothing really wrong here, but just no wow factor.
Really enjoy this s restaurant. Their food is always fresh and delicious. The service as well is outstanding. Will come back and highly recommend to try if you haven't done so yet.
Food was delicious and the wait service was right on cue. I will come again when in the neighborhood!
Very nice restaurant —good food and nice ambiance
Very nice environment
Food was really good
And kunefe was so good !
We opted for meze platers rather than mains and didn’t regret it. Food was delicious, staff was very accommodating to us and our children. Everything was great. We will definitely come back to this restaurant and recommend it to others
The decor is charming and the waiters were so attentive . We especially loved the grilled octopus!
I will definitely be back and will recommend to my friends.
I dined at Lokal on a Saturday afternoon for brunch.
My friend & I were able to try a few cold dips/small plates along with bread. I am a bit of a picky person but the ajvar dip (roasted red pepper and eggplant puree) and lentils patties definitely stood out to me. Both were full of flavor.
I opted for their Eggs Benedict with Salmon and my friend chose Steak and Eggs, both dishes came with home fries. I’ve never had poached eggs prior to and I am very much an omelet girl but I loved it. The eggs went well over the salmon & English muffins. My friend also really enjoyed her steak & eggs meal. Their Mimosa’s & Bellini’s were on point too!
I am definitely looking forward to trying their pancakes/french toast and their omelets. I hope to return soon.
Great service and food was quite good. We will return but they really need to work on the wine.
Delicious food! Servers were attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The lamb burger was a hit for the teenage crowd with us. Highly recommend the small plates - particularly the gambas!
Trip to Natural History museum with family
We have lived the UWS a few years and I cannot believe we have not been to Lokal. We went on Christmas Day. It was wonderful to eat from a regular menu and not a pre-fix. The food and service was really good. And no loud music or noise and it made our visit much more enjoyable.
They have a few unique items on their menu and we look forward to returning.
The mezze are fantastic, especially Pink Lady, Labneh and Ajvar. But it's the bread that can't be beat. I always eat well there and always appetizers, although one of the people at the table had a lamb dish that.he said was excellent. Thank you.
Great place--nice inside, lot of interesting appetizers, very fresh-tasty/spicy. Great fish, veggies...
Kind of dreary for dinner. The drinks were ok, food average+. Would not return.
got there early. a booth in the back, but they had just freshly painted and the smell was strong. moved us up to a table in the front by the bar. no problem. great service and food ... a good time!
There is a wide selection of traditional and not so traditional Turkish food, well prepared and the portions are generous. Drinks are also good. I wish that there were more dessert selections.
This was the perfect place for a family lunch - delicious food with a variety of options to accommodate different dietary needs, including vegan and vegetarian. Would highly recommend!
Noise level quite high- even on a quiet evening. Food quite good and staff very pleasant.
The food is always great, beautifully prepared and presented
Wonderful food and exquisite service. However, as the evening wore on, it got incredibly noisy. I would return. The waiter went out of his way to accommodate us. Service is quite prompt. And friendly. The grilled shrimp were excellent with grilled vegetables. My husband’s chicken kebab was also excellent. The salad was enough for two of us to share. It was also Outstanding.
very nice brunch. PAncakes were delicious
coffee was not so good.
Been there twice now. Love the food, service and cozy atmosphere.
Good food enjoyed the mixed platter a bit pricey
Wait staff were a little too attentive. Kept wanting to take plates that we were still working on which was frustrating. Food always very good and would go back
Great food ....juicy dessert
N overall the restaurant is a great place for a good filling meal
Its a must go on the upper west side
Loved the restaurant! The menu has a wide variety of choices. All of the food was fresh and delicious. Can’t wait to go back and try other selections.
We had an outstanding server named Cara - she was patient, professional & took care of us very well. The food was good/great.
A VERY GOOD place to dine on the Upper West Side that I recommend!
