We love coming to this place, so happy it made it through the tough of pandemic! Food is so tasty and flavorful, just thinking about makes my mouth water. Everything we ordered from meat to vegetarian dishes never a disappoint. If you are in the neighborhood it is a must visit. We do reservations a few days before, so I never had to wait. I know I will be back within the next few weeks! I want to try their brunch menu next!

Food was really tasty and fresh. Service was helpful and attentive. They let us sit and talk without making us feel rushed after we finished our meal. I will go back!

We had a very pleasant, relaxing dinner inside the restaurant. Two of us shared the appetizer trio, the karniyarik & the manti & all were good. I especially liked the tzatziti in the appetizer trio & the karniyarik, although I wish it came with more asparagus. Portions were large & we would have had enough food with just one entree & the appetizer.

First time dining indoors since last year. Now fully vaccinated and happy to enjoy Lokma more than just take out. Service was conscientious, considerate and welcoming. Food was delicious. Recommend the spreads, Presidio salad, sparkling wine.

Good neighborhood joint. Food was really delicious. Service was a bit slow (which I attribute the the restaurant labor shortage) and we weren’t seated at our requested indoor table so it was a bit chilly.

We’d heard rave reviews from friends, so we’re really excited and travelled across the city to visit. Ultimately, I think this is an excellent neighborhood restaurant but maybe not quite a city-wide gem.

Our party really enjoyed sharing small plates and an entree for our dinner. The flavors were wonderful. Great wine list including an unusual petite verdot red wine that we really enjoyed. "E11evan." Good place to go to when visiting the de Young Museum or the Legion of Honor Museum. This is a local gem and fills up later. We booked 5:30pm and got our choice of tables!

Delicious food; friendly, attentive staff; cool, authentic vibe w/out being overly precious. They have a warm, cozy dining room but we sat out on the sidewalk (Covid) which was sweet, the only thing I would change is slightly more substantial outdoor tables/chairs, they’ve got a great corner location.

The food took very long, we had to ask twice when it would arrive. 45 minutes from the time we ordered until we received the first dish. We also had to keep asking for more water. Just not very strong service.
