Start to finish, delicious. Good selection of appetizers; papas bravas ...to die for.
Turlu Couscous is a fantastic vegetarian dish.
Indoor and outdoor ambiance just right.

Fantastic place for some delicious Mediterranean food. Trio spread, wild alaskan halibut and turkish coffee is highly highly recommend. Very friendly staff and service is also absolutely amazing. Would definitely go again (many more times)

This is our favorite restaurant in San Francisco, I hesitate to say this because I don’t want it to be overrun more than it already is! Everything was delicious and the service is stupendous.

Our server (might be the owner but not sure) was incredibly accommodating, fast, and gracious. Really went above and beyond and we can’t wait to go back. The tomato hummus was the highlight and Turkish wine was delicious. Thank you!

Lovely neighborhood restaurant which is worth traveling to. Food was delicious, service was very good (and servers were all very warm and friendly). It sits on a cute little corner in the Outer Richmond with another restaurant across the street so there is a nice festive energy.

Sidewalk set up very nicely. Food A+, took some home, great the next day. Good value for SF. Service was good, our server had a lot of tables but we never really waited long for anything. Will go back again and again.

Food took a while to come out (an hour) on a busy Friday morning. The food was amazing though! Service was alright, could be better. The waiters were sweet but the front desk people need to be a little more tentative and patient.

Overbooked.
We never ate at this restaurant due to waiting :30 min past our reservation time. We were in the second seating.
I realized diners are excited to be out during covid. They are sitting longer at their tables...that is cool. This has become a fine restaurant, no longer fast casual. Please book fewer reservations, raise prices as your food is great.

As always, the food and service were spot on at Lokma. I particularly enjoyed the baba ganoush and kefta. Our server helped me choose a wine to go with dinner and his recommendation was delicious. We also felt covid-safe as we were quite distanced from other outdoor diners and everyone was masked appropriately. So happy that this neighborhood gem is weathering the pandemic!!

Wonderful food. We had the branzino, calamari, mushroom soup, and desserts. All outstanding, though the soup was a touch watery. It still tasted warm and great. Ive also had the lamb in the past.. very yummy and rich.They are attentive and follow Covid protocols. A really nice experience for a pandemic date night.
