My wife, my friend and I had a great meal Friday evening thanks to our helpful and attentive server, Chelsea. The swordfish special that I had was delicious. My friend had the lamb special that he totally devoured. My wife had the awesome kabob. We will return!

Strange set up with tables lined up against a very long wall. Service was very good as were the cocktails. However the three of us agreed that the Musakka was the worst any of us have ever eaten. The food was not served hot. The ground meat was full of gristle and what little taste it had was off.

We love this restaurant! The food is always incredible. The flaming cheese dish is a must have, and the short rib hash for Sunday brunch was mouthwatering. The service is always excellent. Definitely a great find!

Amazing service and really good food. Fairly priced. Offers bottomless mimosas brunches. Not rowdy and good for families.

We’d never been here before but everything from the service to the food was awesome! The worst thing was having to choose which delicious sounding entrees we were going to try. Portions were great too!

We caught Happy Hour & got full so didn't stay for dinner. Bar service was great, excellent happy hour menu & many beer choices. The server made excellent recommendation per our preference (light to dark beers). Our 1st visit was a dinner & it was great, that's why we came back.

New restaurant for us... food mediocre, ambiance not conducive to digestion due to noise level. Made an open table reservation and it was acknowledged when we checked in, then needed to deal with them not counting us as keeping the reservation. We will not be back.

Some of the best lamb I’ve ever eaten, served grilled on skewers. My wife had the moussaka and pronounced it the best she’d had outside of Greece.

Way too loud cannot hear yourself let alone anyone else. Lamb burger was overcooked and it was returned.. The Pleasanton location is much better in terms of noise.

The new partner is rude and unprofessional. We used to go a lot there and everything was great until the new partner arrived and since then everything went down the hills. If I was in Faysee’s shoes, I was looking for another partner since this partner is pushing the business to failure.

Food and service were very good but I wouldn't go back on a weekend because it was very loud and I had to shout and strain to hear. Recommend installation of soundproofing.

We loved the food and service, but very noisy and we had to pay the check for the bar and then pay another check for food. We think they should be able to start a tab for the drinks to be included at the table.

We had breakfast on a Sunday but they take reservations which is a plus (though they were not busy). The breakfast was excellent with usual and unusual choices. Everyone was pleased and we are a bit picky. Also, service was very friendly and accommodating. Would definitely go back and would like to try dinner.

We went to dinner on New Years Eve and had an amazing experience. While the majority of the local favorites were only offering Prix Fixe menus, Lokanta offered an amazing Special menu and the full regular menu, a huge plus! Our server, Celeste, was awesome being attentive but never pushy. We are so looking forward to going back for another amazing experience.
