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.

Excellent service, food quality was well worth the price. Outdoor seating was cozy with patio heaters and ENGRAVED BLANKETS. The blankets are so cute and warm, and you get to keep them! Can’t wait to revisit.

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.

Really great food and incredible employees! A great place to eat during this pandemic—they had a nice setup outside with heat lamps. Would recommend ordering the calamari with coucous.

It is a really nice restaurant but they are going to need a few more gas heaters.It was very cold sitting at our table with no heater.Will likely hurt them unless they deal with that issue as it gets colder.Otherwise nice restaurant and good food with excellent menu.

We sat outside on the parklet on a Wednesday night. They gave us a heater lamp when we asked for it, they didn’t have them out because they were probably expecting less customers. The Branzino, sea bass was fantastic. The salmon was perfectly cooked. Their version of calamari is surprisingly wonderful. I will come again and I highly recommend it

The food is great. Our table was terrible. Not in the parklet. On the sidewalk at the corner of a really busy intersection. Ambience was terrible and stressful and loud. We won’t go back.

Hi There, You could have asked and we could have changed your table easily or add another table to the non-busy area. You can give us a call or make a note in your reservation if you ever change your mind coming back to our space or simply ask for a table that would be more convenient for your dining experience. Hope to see you again! Warm Regards, Emre Kabayel
