My taste buds are still watering over the wine choices along with grape leaves and spanakopita we enjoyed at happy hour. My daughter and I got to sit near the bar, with such nice serene atmosphere and enjoy the last day of my visit to California. Great service, very attentive and cozy!

We had lunch here with some friends we had not seen in over 30 years. Needless to say we had lots of catching up to do. Staff was extremely patient in taking our orders. The food was simply superb. Definitely a restaurant we will eat at again when in Pleasanton.

Wait staff was a little slow. Food was not exceptionally tasty, vegetables were tepid. Atmosphere below average.

"Lokanta" means Restaurant in Turkish, and the maître d' is actually Turkish. So, we went there for brunch. The meze platter is generic middle Eastern, except for the zucchini fritters, which are very Turkish. The flambéed halloumi is Greek. All very tasty. I ordered menemen, Turkish summer eggs, a scramble of tomatoes, white cheese (feta) and spices. Quite authentic and... More

Had taken a few people whom I work with here. Most of them like the food and the atmosphere is good as it is not too loud or too dark. During the summer, you can sit outside the front to enjoy the outdoor weather and do some people watching.

After seeing a movie we landed in this restaurant to refresh ourselves with nice beer & a mix of mediterranean food. Our food comprised flat bread with cheese, assorted salad, grilled chicken breasts coated with cheese & roasted potatoes. Food served with efficiency, less time coated with a smile on the host who first introduced himself. Good place recommended for... More

The food was absolutely amazing. Nothing bad to say about the food or the service. It was fabulous and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Love the vibe on main street in downtown Pleasanton.

Lokanta in Turkish means neighborhood bistro, which the space speaks to appropriately enough. Having just visited Turkey and Greece earlier in the year we were pleased that the food was authentic albeit with a California fusion twist. The staff was friendly if not a bit rushed, even though the place wasn't all that busy. Sat in the rear room which... More

We've usually come here for dinner, or snacks at the bar. But, a couple of days ago, the weather wasn't too hot, so we grabbed the last table out front. I've always liked a draft beer, and the Firestone IPA went well with my Eggs Benedict. My wife matched her bottomless Mimosa with the veggie version of the Eggs Benedict,... More
