Really delicious and great food
The specials salads and The lamb
Who doesn't love Kokkari? It is authentically Greek and the service is always incredible. We come back every year on our anniversary because we had our wedding party there :).
Had been to Kokkari at night for dinner and for special occasions- wine tastings etc.
This was a bit if a last minute pick on open table and we were very happy to see there was a table available. Were first in restaurant and given a great larger table on window. Appreciate the fact that they weren't 'saving' for some sort of special guest. A practice I've witnessed at other otherwise fine establishments. Also the two tops aren't tiny as is very much the case elsewhere.
Very attentive! Waiter was helpful and personable.
Wine by the glass is reasonable and some full bottles seem well priced.
Now the food!!!
Absolutely superlative. One of the best lunch dates I've had with my wife in many years. Each dish was a hit. None was over spiced nor bland. Each had its own unique flavor characteristics which in turn combined well with each other. Given the cuisine, my wife asked for a small plate of olives ( not on menu) and we were quickly brought some of the best we'd ever had. I'd thought to have some fish as it seems to be a specialty but I felt a need to revert to my favorite lamb chops and was rewarded with two larger and perfectly prepared pieces that were obviously prepared over a live fire - delicious! We will now look to frequent kokkari much more often as we certainly could have all the dishes that sounded as good as what we did get to enjoy. Large restaurant that doesn't seem so and it's very well appointed yet feels quite comfortable. Most highly recommended on all counts.
One of our favorite restaurants in SF. Lovely service, delicious food expertly prepared. The only thing that put a damper on our evening was the couple next to us who kept complaining and arguing the entire time. Our tables were very close with a standing lamp in n between, so their arguing was difficult to ignore. They kept hitting the lamp shade and I thought the lamp was going to fall over on top of me. Please remember that when you go to a nice restaurant and proceed to argue loudly for 90 minutes you ruin the evening for everyone around you. We were really looking forward to our evening out at Kokkari - they miserable and rude people sitting next to us were not what we anticipated. Nothing restaurant or staff could do, but it made our evening uncomfortable nonetheless.
Excellent Greek food. Will definitely go back again.
Beautiful place, wonderful food, exemplary service. Efxadisto!
LOVE eating here! Always a treat. Deliciously prepared local food.
Our waiter Max was attentive and very helpful with helping us navigate the menu. Ian the manager was a heck of a host and the food was absolutely stupendous. Loved the lamb chops!
It was my husband’s birthday and the dinner and ambience was amazing. Definitely get the grilled octopus and any lamb dish is amazing. When I made the reservation on Open Table I made a comment that it was for a birthday and when we received our dessert they remembered and wrote happy birthday on the plate, it was so thoughtful. The staff was super attentive, definitely have to go back again.
Love to go to dinner at this place but need reservations far in advance. The food and service are impeccable.
