    Really a terrific neighborhood mainstay. Such nice owners. Service is wonderful, food absolutely delicious, and being there early is a treat because it's so nice and quiet. Later on it's hopping! AND it is the longest surviving restaurant ever on that corner.

    second time here and enjoyed again. Very good food at a reasonable price. We started with the spreads and shishito peppers, both good. I had the stuffed eggplant, excellent. The other had the meat balls, he said they were really good. Baklava was very good also. Service was attentive and friendly. Outdoor space is nice. Prices are good

    Had a fun dinner at Lokma with old friends. The Calamari and Trio Spreads were delicious small bites. The guys gave the short ribs a good rating. My stuffed eggplant was very good. Noise level was moderate enough for easy conversation on a busy Sun. night. We'll be back.

    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.
