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!
Every dish was scrumptious. Nice twist on the Mediterranean selections.
Excellent food, good service. They worked with us to seat a large group at two adjacent tables, and still maintained good and pleasant service through a mildly chaotic dinner!
Great food; great atmosphere. Will definitely eat here w
The food is creative, fresh, and delicious, and served by really nice and professional wait staff who don't bug you. A wonderful restaurant
Nice food. Nice place in the upper west.
The chairs are not comfortable though - rap if u don’t want to slouch.
Supper cozy restaurant with many good options. The lamb dish was very tasty. The sangria has a good cost benefit. The happy hour during weekends is only for the ones who stay by the bar.
The food was good and very tasty. The shrimp dish was very good. The Greek salad was also good. Service was on top of things - good job! All in all very tasty dishes just overpriced.
Lokal is appropriately named - it is a perfect "local" restaurant. We love it. Sea bass and dorada are great value and delicious. Octopus, calamari and shrimp are wonderful. As for service, Cara is just the best!
The food, service and ambiance were lovely. Deserves a repeat visit.
Very good small plates at a reasonable price
Consistently good and especially so for families and large groups (6+) - they are very accommodating and have a layout that suits many configurations.
Ac not on soooo hot
Not bad! But not as amazing as the composite Yelp score would suggest. The octopus and calamari dishes are mostly salad, and the same salad that accompanies other dishes. Not much flavor, though the ingredients are fresh and well prepared.
It was great to discover Lokal! We've lived in the neighborhood for 35 years and have wanted a restaurant like this for years. The food was delicious, service attentive without being rushed, and the servings were large. We chose to share several mezze none of which disappointed. The entrees were large and could easily be split by two people (or take home the leftovers). I was delighted with the bottle of temperanillo wine. Lokal is now in our top 10 restaurant list for the UWS.
Love the restaurant and the food. A bit loud!!
