    A hidden gem in the Richmond district.. we all agreed it was one of the best restaurants we had been to in a long time. We ordered family style, starting with lamp kofte, pita + spreads and potatoes bravas - all were superb especially the house made pita bread, soft and warm. For our main course we shared the lamb chops, dinner salad, halibut and (forgetting the name) an amazing tortellini-like pasta filled with turkey. The latter was the pick of the night. We finished with baklava to cap off a perfect meal. Service is not rushed, the wait staff are friendly and the wine list is excellent. Highly recommend Lokma!

    We don't live in the city. We drive up a number of times a year to the opera house and eat in the Hayes Valley. This time, we had an earlier event and wanted to try a new restaurant somewhere else in the city. We both really like middle eastern food. We made a reservation at lokma, parked in a pay lot they recommended, and made it to our 7:45 outdoor reservation with no drama. The food was wonderful: appetizers, the meat, the mashed potatoes, the turkish sauv blanc (!!!), the baklava. The service was attentive even though it was a busy night. It was a lovely evening and a fun adventure.

    We will go back again. Good food and friendly staff. Outdoor dinning too. We wanted rack of lamb but they ran out. We ordered boneless fish. It was served with bones. Even a good restaurant makes mistakes some times so that will not stop us from coming back.

    Great food and great ambiance. Service was understandably slow given it was a holiday and the place was packed. My only complaint about the food was that the lamb chops were overcooked. I ordered them medium rare (is there any other way to eat lamb?) and they were well done.

    Date night with my husband. The greeter was very nice but service was downhill from then on. We felt there should have been more servers for a full restaurant as well as full outdoor patrons. It was disappointing that the braised short rib ran out so early. We had an 6:45 reservation. My husband had to opt for the grilled chicken which looked more like a lunch entree when it arrived. Prior to our entrees, we ordered the eggplant appetizer with pita. It looked more like a hummus and there weren’t enough pita so we tried to flag our waitress down for more. It took awhile and we had to ask another person for it. They did charge us extra for it without letting us know. The saving grace was my halibut entree—it was awesome. Cooked just right, not overdone and beautifully plated.

    Leisurely service which is absolutely appropriate for the style of dining. Waitstaff was knowledgeable and friendly. Dishes were fresh, well prepared and the expected portion size for the price point. Wine list is small but interesting and was put together with intention to match the food. Overall a very nice experience and I will go back.

    What a wonderful neighborhood gem. The outdoor parklet is nice and reasonably protected from the weather. The food is fantastic. Had cream of mushroom soup and dumplings as appetizers, both were yummy! Had short ribs which were a bit too lean so a bit dry but still very flavorful. Shortribs are meant to be fatty, so perhaps they need to stop trimming the fat! The halibut over Israeli couscous and mashed potatoes was fantastic. Very flavorful and well cooked. Everything on the menu looked delicious, the servers were friendly and we will definitely return!

    We were disappointed in our 4 dishes but nothing was terrible. (but that is a frequent experience for us at SF restaurants). Stuffed zucchini was the better of our choices, although the food that our neighbors had looked like it might taste better??? (They had the Manti next time, and the stuffed eggplant and kofti. Our short ribs were NOT short ribs, but some kind of lean dry chuck roast but the veggies on top were really terrific (mushrooms, onions, carrot). The mashed potatoes underneath were sub par. The citrus salad was okay. Nothing else was surprising or really good. Chair was not comfy, but room was well ventilated and noisy but bearable. The crowd was young and happy.

    Tasty Turkish food. Lamb chop very good, along with the calamari appetizer. Dessert was good too. We enjoyed the affogato with Turkish coffee and the Turkish cake. Lovely, friendly service. The server opened up a new area for us since we had dogs and needed more space, and ensured we had heat lamps to weather the Richmond cool evening.

    A fun find for a great neighborhood Resturant. Highly recommend the calamari and the trio of spreads. Looking forward to coming back again. Only suggestion for the restaurant is related to the olive appetizer. Some of the olives are pitted and some aren’t. Either only use pitted olives or warn patrons to still be on alert for pits!
