We had drinks, and shared appetizers and dessert. All were truly outstanding. Service was well paced, neither rushed nor too slow. Waiter was very helpful.

First time dining out since the start of the pandemic and we were so excited to return to Lokal! We were given different options of seating and chose what we felt most comfortable with. The service was great, food was delicious, and so it’s safe to say we enjoyed our time.

My second time at this fabulous neighborhood gem. After not seeing each other for well over a year, my friend and I shared four amazing appetizers with their delicious bread. So satisfied. I will be inviting many friends to join me here.

Great cheese "cigars" (pastries) and zucchini pancakes. Always crave these.
Ate outdoors under the tent so it was quiet.

If we go again we would ask for the outside covered area on a nice day. The inside is dark and lacking in ambiance. We were seated near the bar which meant lots of clinking glasses and a ringing phone right behind us. We ordered several appetizers and the lamb meatball entree to share. Everything was brought out very quickly and the table is small, so that was awkward. Servers tried to take away plates that weren't finished to make more room. We felt rushed and uncomfortable. The food overall was good but they really need to work on the service.

The dips are delicious, need extra bread to finish them.
The outdoor dining area is kitschy, very cute nautical theme.

Lokal is one of our favorite restaurants, and a go-to for celebrations. We had my birthday dinner there with my parents, my husband, daughters and niece. We all adored the food, the wine, and the service. My parents couldn't stop raving about it! A wonderful place.

Great service and good food. The wait staff went above and beyond to make your experience feel like you were at a 5-star restaurant. We couldn't decide on the Mediterranean dips so we chose the pick 3 option and went with the Tzatziki dip, Pink Queen dip and Ajvar dip. We decided to share a Mezze and Entree. We ordered the Grilled Portuguese Octupus and the Lamb Sauteed. The Lamb Sauteed was perfectly cooked infused with the tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, pepper and garlic flavors.

Really great indoor dining experience. They get your info for contact tracing. They also did not rush you out compared to other restaurants these days. And less people inside makes for a nicer ambiance indoors. Great and friendly local restaurant.

Nice dishes with a Mediterranean flair. Food choices a little out of the ordinary but that are also appealing to a more traditional palate.
Love their stuffed cabbage and for those into desserts, the baklava is sure to please
