    Not the best service. Not the best food. Small portions and smaller wine glasses. Want good food? Keep walking.

    Waited 35 mins for our drinks. Almost an hour for the food. 2/10 would not bang.

    If you think it's a good idea to skip the wait at Five Leaves and come to Lokal, stop. It's not worth it. Turn around back across the street.

    Great oldies music and people watching. The Calamari, Bulgogi and Mushroom soup were delicious. Our server was attentive and friendly contrary to other posts on here. We recommend it!

    Great if you enjoy dirty hipsters glaring at you for bringing a child. They have hi chairs tho so there's that.

    If you're looking for tulsi, maca, fancy salts and coconut oil, you're barking up the wrong tree. Lokal has a delightful juice bar menu with combinations that predate the juicing-as-a-trend era.

    Don't go here for brunch. Everything was dry, mediocre and taste-less.

    There must be a new person in the kitchen and I'm going to assume he loves salt. It's a shame lokal was a fave

    The Huevos Rancheros are no joke. Lots of outdoor seating in the warmer months. Smoothies are a great start to brunch!

    Have a glass of port with your chocolate souffle and you will be very happy

    There's a reason people brave 2hr. waits at Five Leaves rather than walk 30ft to this place. I believe "Lokal" is Polish for "umitigated shitshow." Avoid unless you want to make your hangover worse.

    The organic chicken sandwich with dried tomatoes on ciabatta bread is great.

    In my experiences here, the food has been kind of bland, but the atmosphere is great for a nice day: open doors and outside seating.

    Free "check-in" beer is from a SELECTED list. I ordered a Chimay (at the direction of our ill-informed server) and ended up having to pay for it. Otherwise, a chill place for brunch.

    Service was terrible. It's only good when the owner/manager guy is there. The staff is too busy socializing. Penne was great. Get take out here instead maybe?

    Nice atmosphere ... The food isn't that great and we were waiting more than an hour on Sunday for the food to be served. Worth to try :)
