A party of 7 isn't always easy to fit into a busy restaurant but Lokanta was more than accommodating for our large group on a busy Friday night. We ordered many of the specialty cocktails and several of the appetizers including meatballs, spanakopita and the flaming hallumi cheese. Main courses included lamb burgers, filet mignon, mahi-mahi, kabobs and pasta. We... More

We go to this place...a lot. There's a very small collection of "go to" eateries in Pleasanton for us, Lokanta is easily in the top three. Great staff, food and barkeeps.

I've been to Turkey many times, and it was a real Turkish (even Greece) restaurant. you should get there and try the foods. we had Imam Beidili ( Egg plant filled with veggies and ...) was the weakest one, but other dishes are incredible and...

We have been underwhelmed with many of the restaurants in Pleasanton within the last year, but after much contemplating, we decided to give it one more shot. I searched on Tripadvisor's 10 Best Pleasanton Restaurant list and came across Lokanta's, read recent positive reviews, and called for a reservation tonight. Our waiter, Jesus, greeted us promptly and was very attentive... More

I wanted to give Lokanta a 4 or 5 star rating and I believe that when I return, I will. When I visited this appealing restaurant, everything was likeable: our server was warm and helpful with the menu; the menu itself had an excellent variety of choices; and the spacious surroundings and low key relaxed atmosphere were all working in...

Food is delicious.. The tables especially around the bar area are very close to each other and space is tight. That being said, I will definitely return for the food.

I had the Short Rib sandwich which was excellent as were their potatoes which were crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside, huge portions of both! My husband had the Moussaka with Eggplant and while it was good it was lacking a bit in flavor. Lovely place but extremely noisy.

I visited this restaurant for a business lunch. I hadn't previously visited Lokanta's. Now I can say I'm very glad I did. I had the Mousakka and found it to be among the best I've ever had. It was a generous piece and at the first glimpse I did not think I'd finish the whole piece. I was so good... More

Visited this restaurant with a friend. She has an intolerance to gluten and we were both able to find wonderful meals. I had the Roka salad with grilled chicken kabob and asked them to add a spring mix to the greens. Very nice, but next time I would ask them to cut down on the onions. My friend had an... More

We have eaten here three times now, once for brunch (loved the bottomless mimosas), once for lunch, and once for dinner (but that was ordered to go last night).
