We enjoyed a lovely afternoon visit with friends from Tampa. The lobster bisque was over the top. Blackened grouper was exceptional. The Bibb & Bleu salad was excellent. The rib eye was tough. It was cooked exactly to order-- Pittsburgh rare--but was very, very tough. The short rib nachos were wonderful. Bread pudding and carrot cake were a delicious ending. Red sangria is highly recommended. Nester provided great service.

Went to dinner with friends for first time. Noise a little loud for conversations but tolerable. Service was great and we were well cared for. Potatoes were a little dry. Entrees were amazing.

The same great service and atmosphere, but the last two times the food was only average. This is what I would expect from a chain restaurant. I’m no longer motivated to travel to Dade City for a chance to eat at Kafe Kokopelli.

The food was disappointing this time. My chicken was way overcooked and my husbands meatballs were not as spicy as normal. The waitress did offer free desert but we passed. We will still go back and still love the place. Everyone has a bad day. This was our third visit and the two previous visits were outstanding so we do recommend this place, and do intend to go back.

The staff was very nice. I put on the on-line form that it was our anniversary when I made the reservation, and several staff wished us a happy anniversary. My husband had the prime rib, and I had the special, which was a pork chop. We were both satisfied with our choices.

Disappointing. Went with a group of six people. My BLT was "OK", nothing special but the She Crab Soup was mostly thick flour broth and tasted like flour with little she crab taste. My wife ordered the Prime Rib Dip that was returned because it was more like Prime Rib FAT dip. One friend complained that the Chicken in the Chicken Parm was extremely dry and very little sauce on the pasta. No one thought their meal was exceptional. The friend who recommended Koko raved about the desert. On a previous visit, she said she had the Goat Cheese Cheesecake. Even though the general meals were disappointing, she said we had to share a piece of Cheesecake. When it came out, it was more crust than cheesecake and extremely dry as if it was made several days ago and was the last piece in the refrigerator. Ambiance was good, service was good even though we were never asked if we would like a drink from the bar. Water and tea was all that was offered.
I have read the other reviews and hope this was just an "off" day. May try again later in the year.

Only thing that I can come up with is that there was no salad or bread of sorts with a

Had a melt in my mouth filet that was cooked as I asked and delicious. The ladies had the special of the day, shrimp and lobster in linguine which they said was excellent. Dessert was a brownie with pistachios topped with vanilla ice cream. Wonderful as was the evening.

There's a male host there that I always seems to look down his nose at every one. I don't know who he is but he definitely needs an attitude adjustment. The other night I came with my group and there were people that hadn't even been seen yet and a woman who was trying to pay her bill but kept being met with impatient staff. It was a mess. Kokopellis needs to be a little more humble.
