    We have passed by Lokma many times and finally tried it. We were greeted and seated right away. The food is amazing! We had the cream of mushroom soup, the naan bread and trio spread and the short ribs for our main course. The ambiance is cozy and it was overall and wonderful meal. We only wish we went sooner!

    Wonderful tasting food. A bit chilly with the door open. The servers were attentive and accommodating as we were trying to rush off to a movie; although I didn't realize there was already a service fee attached to the bill as I gave an additional 20% tip! But we had a great time.

    This is such a gem of a restaurant, in a neighborhood with so many good options. For some reason, we don't dine here as often as some other spots, but that should change. The service was top-notch: food prepared quickly, attentive and friendly waitstaff, and even a candle on dessert when they realized it was a birthday dinner. And the food . . . we love Mediterranean, and Lokma delivers. It does Turkish food like Kokkari does Greek. Can't be beat.

    second time here and enjoyed again. Very good food at a reasonable price. We started with the spreads and shishito peppers, both good. I had the stuffed eggplant, excellent. The other had the meat balls, he said they were really good. Baklava was very good also. Service was attentive and friendly. Outdoor space is nice. Prices are good

    Had a fun dinner at Lokma with old friends. The Calamari and Trio Spreads were delicious small bites. The guys gave the short ribs a good rating. My stuffed eggplant was very good. Noise level was moderate enough for easy conversation on a busy Sun. night. We'll be back.
