Lokma is consistently good. Their Calamari, Burger, Chicken, Lamb chops and Potatoes are my favorites. They have a diverse, reasonably priced wine list. Service has always been excellent!

A last dinner out with our son and girlfriend before they return home after the holidays. Lokma was a wonderful warm and comfortable place. Our dinners were all different and all delicious. I had the stuffed eggplant - so yummy! The branzino was also superb.
This is a place that we feel lucky to have in our neighborhood, and will come back often.

Everyone enjoyed themselves. The Manti were particularly good, although the braised short ribs could have used some more seasoning.

Food good but very pricey for the portions. While we sat outside the table next to us had a few men screaming as if they were in their own home
No regard for other tables next to them
Restaurant should be able to control noisy patrons

I will never return

Wanted to love this, but it wasn't spot on. The ambiance is welcoming and the staff generally attentive, but our food came out barely warm. Even though our reservation was at 6:45, it seemed everything was a bit rushed (they stop serving at 8:30).

Maybe it was just an off night? I will try it again to see.

We asked for outside dining and the table was on the sidewalk corner outside the
Park let. At first the wait person seemed pretentious but that got better as the meal progressed. The food was fantastic. Will definitely go back.

Wonderful restaurant serving yummy food. The service was great: friendly, efficient and helpful with selections. The Turkish red wine was delicious too.
My husband and son were first timers at Lokma and both loved it.
The ambiance is cozy, the space nicely decorated and everything was immaculately clean!

Lokma is an absolute neighborhood gem, so if you haven't tried it yet, you most definitely should! I had been to lunch a couple times, but last night was my first dinner experience. The dinner menu is incredible. Great value, good portions and amazing quality. We shared two delicious appetizers (the trio spreads and the calamari) and each of us had a yummy main (eggplant, short ribs and dumplings). The servers are super friendly and the restaurant feels homey and welcoming, and not too noisy. Will be there again very soon!

Very pleasant sidewalk tables with heaters. The food was surprisingly good and not too expensive. They have several dishes I'd never seen before - it's always a treat to try something completely new. We plan on coming back.

The service was very personable . I had eaten there for brunch previously and wanted to try out dinner. The octopus with the squid was fantastic. My sister both liked the short rib entree as well .....the harissa sauce was actually quite good. I will definitely go back. We went early on a Thursday so it was quiet.
