Lokal - Lincoln Park
The bottomless mimosas are advertised as $15 but what isn't said that it's the price per person.. Overall the portions are great and the food taste was amazing. The environment was lively and energetic. I would defiantly go again!
Loved the service and food! My previous times and experiences at Lokal were much more fun and the music was up louder and the ambience was better. Not sure what happened this particular weekend, but I would hear more upbeat music and a better mix of hip hop and Latino music.
Good food, reasonably priced. It should be more crowded than it is.
Waitress was amazing! Courteous and attentive. The price of the food was great! And quality was wonderful! Fresh ingredients! The mimosas are a must have!
Waited a half hour for a table we reserved. Waitress gave a glass of champagne, which was nice, but she does it for everyone since EVERYONE has to wait for their tables long enough to warrant complaint.
Great food and atmosphere. They even allowed my party to stay while the were switching over to dinner.
We arrived, there was nobody in the restaurant part which was closed for the night (Fri nite 7:45) and no one in the bar part. So we sat at the high top, looked at the menu which was completely different from the menu shown on OpenTable. The bartender came over and introduced herself, was very nice and when asked said she did not know about the menu, we showed her the menu online from OpenTable she said that must be a very old menu. The current menu is a pretty boring bar menu so we decided to leave.
We waited over 1 hour after our reservation despite the fact we were there on time. We would have been okay waiting if they would let us start our bottomless package at the bar, however this was not an option. We ended up spending additional money on drinks while waiting one hour for our existing reservation, before we were allowed to start our drink package.
I've been thrilled with Lokal in the past, however this was a truly awful experience. We were continuously mislead, and the bar was unwilling to accommodate our exceedingly long wait despite a reservation. Highly disappointing.
It was ok. Wasn’t what I expected.
It was good!
Great service had a lovely brunch!
Absolutely love LoKal and love the food and service.
Great local spot for brunch. The environment is hip with a mix of culture. Highly recommend this local gem!
We ordered the bottomless champagne. Only received one bottle the entire time we were there. Completely ignored. $20 per person wasted. The food is good but we waited a horribly long time for it as well. Due to the terrible service we won’t be back again. Plenty of places have great bottomless so no reason to come here.
I came here for brunch with friends! Lovely ambiance and bottomless mimosas!
Great food! Ask for Gail !! She was the best !!!!!!
Really loved the music and the neighborhood charm of the place. I would've never known, this is a hidden gem! However, I wish there were more food selections, the menu is quite small but the mimosas make up for the lack of options. They will get you lit quick!!
Went for their boozy Sunday brunch and had a blast ! Def recommend bottomless mimosas and their skillet
The food has always been amazing at this place. I took some friend here for brunch so we can catch up, but this is not a place for a quite brunch.
They have a DJ blasting (good music) and it makes it impossible to have a conversation; however, if you want to get your dance on during brunch this is the perfect place to go!
The food was great, but the music inside was absolutely too loud. Had to move outside just to hear myself think.
Great food, amazing service and always fun environment! Highly recommend LOKaL
The food was absolutely amazing and the portions were large for the great low pricing. The waiter was very nice and quick and the music was jamming. I’d definitely go back.
Bottomless mimosas, what else is there to say.
The food was good but the wait was ridiculous. I had a reservation but still wound up waiting over an hour to be seated. I eventually had to sit outside risking being rained on.
Great experience !
Lokal is such a fun environment for so many reasons. The DJs are amazing and start a party every time they’re playing. You can’t beat the food- it shocks me literally every time how high quality the meals are. Their boozy brunch is definitely the best! Oh, and the bartenders, servers, and manager are SO freaking sweet. I love this place :)
We went to Lokal for brunch on a Saturday and had a reservation. We were seated after waiting 15 minutes. The noise level in the restaurant is very loud and they kept turning the music up louder and louder. We placed our order and waited 45 minutes for our food. While we were waiting our wait staff did not check on us or see if we needed anything else. Our food finally arrived and the wait staff still never checked on us. They have a 20% automatic gratuity on the mimosa brunch special so the wait staff does not have much incentive to check on customers. The food is decent but there are much better places to brunch.
We really enjoyed the mimosa Bruce here. Service was excellent. Never had to ask for a refill and food was great also.
Casual neighborhood spot for bar food with daily specials. We sat outside and enjoyed a nice breeze. There seemed to be a shortage of wait staff for dinner as I’m guessing it’s more of a later night crowd but our server somehow managed to keep us happy and man the bar inside :).
One of the best Trap Brunches in Chicago. If you want great food, great music and unlimited mimosas this is your place,
great place to have brunch with friends great food and great vibes
Lokal is always fire! Mario was our waiter and he was great. Bartenders are great also and the DJ was lit! Favorite brunch spot in Chicago.
We went to the Boozy Brunch for my birthday. I think our server’s name was Jessica. She was amazing as was every employee that we spoke to while brunching! 10/10 we will be back!
Really dope atmosphere. Enjoyed the food and music.
Food was good but ambiance was terrible. It was 9:45 on Sunday morning and they had a DJ with the music on at full volume. It was difficult to hear our server and difficult to hear each other. The food was good but I would not go back based on this alone. We asked our server if the music could be turned down and she either couldn’t hear us or ignored our request as no adjustment to the volume was made. Would not go back.
I took my husband to LOKal for father’s day brunch. The ambiance was nice, the DJ played great music, the staff was very attentive and friendly. The food was so fresh, i had the LOX on toast opposed to a bagel what a great idea it was easier to eat. My husband had the truffle fries and LOKal burger he was very satisfied
Overall had a great brunch experience. The only issue was that it took well over an hour for us to receive our entree’s. I’m assuming the delay was due to a birthday group of about 20+ people backing up the kitchen. Other than that, the food was A1 and music was on point! Can’t beat the bottomless mimosa deal either. Will definitely return.
Very nice vibe. Good food. Lots of white ppl. Lol
Way too loud and cramped. Service was awful and food was way over priced for the taste
The brunch isn’t worth it for the price...there are better and more high scale brunches for the same price with better food option.
