One of the best dinners we have had in a very long time. No need to drive in to Tampa for great food. Great atmosphere and service.

Had Mother's Day dinner here and everything was fabulous. We had the fried green tomato nbapoleon and the short rib and beer cheese "nachos". Both were very tasty and we all agreed that we would have these again. All of at the table agreed that the "nachos' were a huge surprise hit and the short rib meat tender and tasty and paired well with the beer cheese. Our entrees were steak, prime rib, lamb and chicken pasta. All of us enjoyed out meals. Our waitress was very efficient and made for a great dining experience. We will definitely be back.

Another great experience! Everything was great except for the two little kids who kept kicking the boards between our booth and theirs. Parents, please pay attention! Once they left our experience got back up to wonderful. The eggplant was great as were all other entrees. Our server did a great job.

I have been coming to Kokopelli for years. Never disappointed until this last time. The brunch menu was not great and I had to send back my Bloody Mary because it was not good at all.

Overall Kafe Kokopelli was a very nice experience, relaxing and interesting atmosphere. The Maître d’ was not very friendly but everyone has a bad day now and then, he was not rude in anyway. Service was attentive but not bothersome. Food was excellent, cooked to perfection and generous quantity. Will definitely return and recommend to friends.

Rolls and butter by request--fresh, excellent taste. Soup was perfect temperature for me--more than warm. Server was prompt and courteous. Chicken Marsala was excellent. Stuffed Meat Loaf was excellent. Reservation web site worked without a hitch. This was my third visit; happy with each visit.

The food, service and staff where excellent. We had a party of nine and did not notice the gratuity was added so we paid a double however the manager Steve called to inform us of this and removed to automatically added gratuity. This is truly a gem in Dade City with an honest staff. We will definitely be frequent customers 😉

At our table 4 out of 6 ordered the lobster mac and cheese and each one loved theirs and thought it was delicious. One ordered the prime rib, and commented that it was off the charts! One ordered the spiral ham Easter special, which was really good. Loved the ambience, and the staff was very helpful and accommodating throughout our visit.

We just love Kafe Kokopelli but have not been in over 15 years. Dade City is about an hour away from us and we decided on a whim to go on a Sunday afternoon. The place is so cool with its eclectic decor and the availability to eat in or outside. You can have the best game of eye spy in this place because you have so many things to spy. I would highly recommend the She Crab Bisque, Chicken Marsala, Bone in Ribeye and the key lime pie. (just to name a few) Great wine and bar selection and if you are ever in Dade City you should not miss it.

We have been at least 3 times this month, twice was perfection, everything. Last time service was disappointing with specific waitress, left before completing all appetizers, needed to call her back, check in with us as to how things were going was rare. Otherwise everything else was great.

The food was amazing! The server knew his wines, and made a great suggestion. Everything tasted wonderful, but one person ordered lamb chops and the serving size was disappointing - only two chops for the same price that I got a HUGE ribeye. Otherwise, we had a great visit!

We loved the little room they put us in away from the rest of the restaurant. It was quieter and my grandma who is unable to hear real well enjoyed the added touch. Our server was amazing as always! Food was delicious and this is the second time in 6 weeks we have dined here to celebrate! We will definitely be back!!

Our visit to Kafe Kokopelli was just okay. The food was fine, but not particularly exciting or special. One person in our party ordered the Eggplant Parmesan and was told it was topped with fresh mozzarella cheese -- it wasn't. The chips that came with the sandwiches were okay, but some were way overcooked and tasted a little burnt. Service was also incredibly slow. Like, it took 15 minutes to get water. We did enjoy the gator tail bites appetizer and the andouille sausage po' boy. The decor is also very cute. Overall, it's not a bad restaurant, it's just not one to write home about.

Not as good as the first time I went. Hit or miss apparently. But when it's good, its great. They admitted to using the same oil for fries as they do their fish and didn't offer credit or any apologies.

Quirky, fun atmosphere. Service was disappointing, but well-intentioned. Steak in salad was a little tough with gristle, but flavorful (and they comp'ed us half). Good place to go, especially for the area.
