About the restaurant
62 years of loyal customers can't be wrong. We are grateful to all of our customers, employees, and critics (...though we may not always agree!). The only way to find out the truth is with a visit. Oft imitated, never duplicated. Thank you in advance.

Great restaurant and ambiance was fantastic. The food is good, but of course a burger should have fries on the side without having to pay for fries as a side dish..especially for what they charge? Overall, good experience!

Though I requested indoor seating, once I arrived and realized how noisy it was inside, I requested to be seated outside - which they managed to do expediently. The food was generally great. Both Croquetas were amazing, as were the Patatas Bravas. We were not impressed with the Gazpacho Salad & Tartare, nor the Spanish Meatballs. The Cocktails were quite nummy - we especially liked the Mare & Tonic. Prices seemed reasonable (<$100/person including drinks.)

Financial District / Embarcadero
About the restaurant
Kokkari (pronounced “Ko-Kar-ee”) is a small fishing village located on the islands of Samos in the Aegean Sea, whose name is derived from the small onions that were once produced in the nearby fields. Its fertile soil and Mediterranean climate translated into an abundance of fresh produce as well as treasured seafood and game. Legend tells that Kokkari is the site where Orion, a mighty hunter and a young man of gigantic stature and great beauty, fell in love with the daughter of the king of Chios. For the love of her, Orion forged the island for wild game and seafood to prepare elaborate banquets in celebration of their love. Today, we hope you will enjoy your own celebration as you dine at Kokkari Estiatorio on food “fit for the Gods” prepared with an Aegean palate and the style of innovative California fare.
