Great food, service and ambience.
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.
been here many times--had great fresh fish and tasty veggies.
Very good food. The grilled sea bass was delicious. Would definitely go back!
Great cheese "cigars" (pastries) and zucchini pancakes. Always crave these.
Ate outdoors under the tent so it was quiet.
Lokal has some great items for sure! My favorite is the pink lady! There bread is out of this world too!
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.
We were looking forward a socially distanced location with good food and service for lunch. This place was perfect on all counts!
The dips are delicious, need extra bread to finish them.
The outdoor dining area is kitschy, very cute nautical theme.
Excellent service, food and environment. Couldn’t have asked for better.
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.
Delicious food, great vibe and friendly service. Would recommend.
Had a nice time and a tasty dinner, the service was very attentive and our meal which were small plates we shared came out quickly.
Staff was gracious and kind very warm atmosphere
Food is amazing and the service was impeccable. Def will come back.
Amazing service and the food is absolutely delicious!!
Very average food at a very high price. Decent but clumsy service.
Tasty food, nice atmosphere
Ate outside and waiters were inside. Not attentive to the few customers outside in the tent.
Lovely outside space!
Sat in the temporary plastic outdoor tent. Tables were distanced well. Server was very friendly and attentive. Made sure we had everything we needed.
The food was delicious and plated in a very appealing way. Plenty of healthy options and great flavors
It was wonderful, food was delicious and staff was very nice!!
Always great experience at this place!
The food is always great and we were comfortable in the outdoor seating area.
Great outdoor set up
Great food. Reasonable price.
I always love this restaurant so I'm happy to visit during these outdoor dining days. I do wish there were some plastic barriers within the tent, but otherwise great and wonderful service!
I really appreciated the friendly customer service by the supporting cast. Food was prepared well.
Delicious food, prompt service, friendly host, safety prioritized
Amazing customer service and incredible food! Thank you!
Amazing food, amazing service, and amazing vibes!
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.
We've come back here several times because we like their appetizers and their seafood. We were very pleased that the quality remained the same.
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
