Loved it! Great gluten free menu. Food was beautiful and delicious. Very cool decor and great vibe. What a find! We live 1.5 hours away but will probably go back!

The experience tonight (Valentine's Day) was absolutely perfect. Every aspect was executed up to the highest levels Kokopelli provides. Make this the benchmark!

Great food at a reasonable price. The service was outstanding. Wife and I went for Valentine’s Day and it was perfect. Our server had a smile all evening.

I’ve always loved this place; no place comes close in the area for ambiance, decor and service. 80% of the time the food is great too.

While I do recommend the fish tacos, I do not recommend getting them fried. I do not recommend the fried fish sandwich either. If they step up their game there it would be a great improvement. Everything else we’ve ever had has been very good.

Cocktails are on the weak side but on the flip side their desserts are amazing!!! If you want a great mixed drink, sit at the bar.

Also, you will never be disappointed with the ambiance or the bananas foster! I will keep going back for those two things alone.

Our waiter from OH made the night really special. He was very friendly, attentive and on point. He didn't miss a beat and made us feel right at home. The good was great and the atmosphere was wonderful.

Loved the setting in such an old building and the eclectic decor. I had the stuffed meatloaf which was very tasty, maybe a bit dry, but overall, very good. The Kumquat Margarita was different and fun to try.

Exceptional dining experience by all aspects. Drove almost an hour from Apollo Beach and was well worth the drive. Plus Dade City is a great day trip destination. We’ve already recommended it for our friends. We’re going back.

We tried Kafe Kokopelli for the first time and really enjoyed it! We each tried something different and it was all good! I had the reuben. The meat was tender and flavorful. We all tried the she crab soup...it was wonderful!!! Others in my party had meatloaf, prime rib sandwich and cuban sandwich. Everyone enjoyed their meal. We will definitely be back!!!

Excellent restaurant! Diverse menu and outstanding seasonal cocktail specials (Snowflake Martini was delish!). Great quality at a surprisingly reasonable price. We will definitely return!

Love to come here for special occasions and just for a night out. We drive from Spring Hill and always order the she crab soup. It's the best! Tonight's occasion was my husband's birthday. Unfortunately we didn't save room for the banana's foster (another favorite of ours). Oh well, guess we'll just have to come back soon!. Our waiter Saturday night, in the bar area, was excellent! Played right along with all of our jokes, wise cracks and sarcastic remarks. He made sure my husband had a birthday dessert though even though we said we were stuffed! Thank you. We'll be back soon for soup and dessert!

Food was very good, especially liked the house made potato chips. Perhaps a little over salted, but tasty and crunchy. Food was served promptly and Meg (server) pointed out portion of my plate might be hot. Nice attention to details. Have eaten here before, and had the feeling the management might have changed
Will return and recommend food and beverages. Bloody Mary was just the right accompaniment for my Reuben.

Nearly all of us noted that our food was barely warm. That applies to both warm/"hot" appetizers like the brie, fried green tomatoes and bisque, and to the entrees. I don't know if they sat before they were brought to the table or were just produced that way by the kitchen, but it was probably the most noteworthy aspect of the meal. It definitely affected everyone's reception and the consensus was that while we may not avoid the restaurant, nobody was in hurry to return.
