What Insiders Are Saying
Come to Kokkari Estiatorio in the Financial District to feel like a big shot. Maybe even throw on a suit and tie. It's a Greek temple of lamb.
Amazing food! Wonderful service. Outstanding visit! Can't wait to go back
Consistently good. You go there knowing what you want and it never disappoints
Wonderful dining experience. The food was excellent, the ambience was charming, and the service top notch. So glad we were able to get reservations while we were still in town! Would definitely go back again.
Food was great - could use a little less oil & garlic and still taste excellent...
Service was also attentive and helpful
Excellent meal. Excellent service.
This is hands down my favorite restaurant in San Francisco. The food is always top notch and the service is excellent. Appetizer favorites include the Zucchini cakes and Lamb Meatballs. I highly, HIGHLY recommend the Moussaka for a main course (favorite) and my husband loves when they have the Goat Stew for a special. Balaclava for dessert is a must too. The wine list is excellent and they mixed drinks are well made. Basically I LOVE THIS PLACE!!!
Our server was professional and courteous! The food was amazing and the wine list was extensive!
Service was amazing as were the starters. The main dishes were just okay (lamb souvlaki and lamb chops) - I have had better from there and would expect better for the price.
I love this place and have been coming from years and years. I particularly love sitting in Jeff’s section. Such a lovely and charming person.
We received great service and as always the food was delicious.
Amazing food, 5 stars service. Will keep coming back over and over again.
We have been to this esteemed place many times in the past...on this occasion the food really was average to poor.. had the octopus..in the. Past wonderful and nicely marinated..not so last Sunday night..also the zucchini fritters were mushy and tasteless...even with the tzatsaki condiment..there are so many new, current Mediterranean places...why now go to a place that remains comfortable but seems dated, needs renovation or At least recovering the upholstered chairs..noise level was wonderful..could linger and talk..that goes for something..just disappointed it seemed so terrific in the past...has lost its panache! Sorry,..
Excellent service, and superior, consistently amazing food! Will always be a favorite choice for memorable family gatherings for us. Our party of 5 was treated just perfectly from start to finish.
As always food was perfect. Always is. Branzino is always great. The heirloom tomato salad incredible. Service friendly. Wine good. What’s not to like?
As usual Kokkari never stops amazing me, food is always amazing and service is superb. Thats why its still the best restaurant in SF. Bar team and service team hands down the best!
Love this place! The food is fantastic and service is great - it’s always a treat!
The food was outstanding! Our server Nina was incredible. Loved everything about this place! Can’t wait to go back!
Good food service was very good. We will definitely come back again
Lunch at Kokkari was fantastic!! (as usual) The food was amazing and the service perfect. The chopped salad and the appetizer of pita stuffed with figs, goat cheese and olives were standouts. One of my favorite restaurants.
Kokkari Estiatorio is one of the best restaurants in the world. Authentic greek food. Creative and generous. Good value for a premier restaurant.
I love kokkari so much! Have been going here for years and it never disappoints. Recently had the lamb tongue and organ skewer specials and they were fantastic! The olive and oil and bread are amazing. Service is always great as well.
Simply fantastic. I think probably best Greek I’ve ever had , super fresh & flavorful. Beautiful space , just loved it
Third time dining at Kokkari and it never disappoints!
Beautiful setting. Large restaurant but divided into various sized rooms, all of which feel like fine dining. We ordered the rotisserie lamb and the lamb chops and both mains were outstanding, beautifully seasoned and cooked as requested. Zucchini cakes a delicious starter and wished for larger capacity to have tried others. Service excellent. Highly recommend.
The place it’s brilliant!! Perfect place to go for a Romantic Dinner or to take someone you care for. The food and service are just amazing!! Musaka, branzino, zucchini cakes.
Loved the warm feel of this place. The fire place with the meat roasting really made an impression. The food did not disappoint. Great service and great food. Would recommend for special occasion or just to try out a new place for a dining experience.
Our favorite restaurant in SF. We plan our trip to San Francisco around a reservation at Kokkari. The food is so unique. We love the gigante beans and lamb meatballs for starters. I tried the goat stew which was a great flavor and texture of grandma’s yummy pot roast. The price tag was a shocker for a stew however. The spit roasted pork chop was a hit with my husband.
We really like doing several small plates which are each unique to Kokkari.
See you next year!
This was such an incredible experience from start to finish. I had the lamb chops and my husband had the roast chicken. Both were excellent. We had the best Sancerre wine. The dessert was out of this world: doughnuts drizzled with honey. It is fairly loud inside - the ambiance is beautiful and the service is beyond. We loved it!
My third time I the place
Magnificent food, great service, don’t waste your time going without reservation
Worth the trip from the East Bay. Be ready for a good meal
Food was horrible. Perhaps a good place for tourists.
Megan (at lunch) was an excellent waitress. She told us she was new and she was fantastic!
We've celebrated birthday's and anniversary's here.
The food is outstanding and the wait people are very attentive and accommodate most
Love this place!!
Tasty classic Greek food served in a comfy atmosphere. Not to miss are the moussaka, the grilled whole fish and whatever is on the rotisserie that day.
Enjoyed our dinner, food was delicious. Noise level was high and we could hear everything the diners at the table next to us were saying. Waiter was prompt but not overly friendly. Definitely would recommend due to quality of the food.
My family of four came into SFO from Toronto. I booked this place weeks ago. Arrived ahead of my reservation. Empty tables yet we waited. We are tourists dressed for comfort. This is Greek food. Not haute food. We were eye baked up and down but what appeared to be a head waiter maybe. So I grated him when he woke up and greeted me. Service was cold initially. My soup was delivered nearly spilling all over my lap. Service warned up (hey I don't want to say it but perhaps after they heard we spoke perfect English). What can I say? Would I reco? Nah. Save your money. I spent over $300.
I was warned San Fran doesn't have that great food. And I have to admit what use treated as 5 star here is at best 3 by rest of the world standards.
I expect better from America land of customer service. Trump what have you done to this country?
Ivan the host was most charming and accommodating, and Nina, our server was very knowledgeable, articulate, attentive with a beautifully graceful personality. The dishes were all delicious and served in a professionally timed manner. My guest and I had a wonderful experience.
We had a fantastic birthday dinner sharing five courses and a couple glasses of wine and a wonderful flourless chocolate cake. The feta cheese stuffed squid was probably the High Point along with the skewered vegetables with Greek yogurt, but actually everything was wonderful and the service was great.We’ll definitely go again.
