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 experience! Authentic Greek food in a nice urban setting!
Wonderful birthday dinner
We’ve been here several times and it’s always great. White tablecloth and service accordingly.
The BEST Greek food I’ve ever had!!! A must do on your visit to San Francisco.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco! Food is amazing, good service and lovely location!
Sehr gutes Restaurant. Haben den Jahrestag dort gefeiert. Etwas teuer aber lohnenswert.
The goat was out of this world. The service was amazing. One of the best restaurants you’ll ever try.
As always the service was exceptional and both the lamb chops and lamb kabob were to die for!!!
Locale magnifico, sevizio veloce e attento, molto ben frequentato. Indirizzo top da non perdere tempo in questo momento a Frisco ( maggio 2019).
If you have the pleasure of having Jillian as your server, your night will be one to remember. We can here to celebrate my husbands birthday and the lamb chops and rotisserie duck were some of the best dishes I’ve had in a while since moving to SF. You can’t go wrong with the honey walnut donuts and flourless chocolate cake for dessert!
Excellent service & food. One of my fav restaurants in SF!
We come before and the food was outstanding
However, the service was lacking the typical warmth you find in Greek restaurants
This was not the case this time
Valerie our server was warm and inviting
Must go restaurant in San Francisco
Love the restaurant, fabulous menu well executed. Noise level after 6:30 deafening and almost painful
Food was great as always!
Great service experience. Decent foreign beers. Good food, especially appetizers. But entrees were quite expensive, good, but not overwhelming. Would go again but maybe do heavy apps and split an entree.
This is an amazing Greek restaurant. Walking distance to market. Beautiful and bustling interior all the time. Food was great as was service. Treat yourself!
Hi! Fun night. It had been awhile since we where at Kokkari. Last summer’s vacation in Crete continued the mood for Greek food all through the year! Glad to have dined again at Kokkari and next time I know to ask for the front room. :).
Best lamb shank I've ever had!
The food was great, nice service and atmosphere.
Wonderful service and delicious meal!
Valerie was an excellent server and helped create a memorable dining experience.
Great meal. Check out the artichoke and eggplant app and the grilled octopus. Lamb chops were fantastic. Main complaint it was so busy. Waited almost 25 min past our reservation and took a while for service to get started when we first sat down. But overall great and would definitely go back.
Excellent food and service
Food and service is great.
What a great restaurant with excellent service- the food is exceptional. So fresh and flavorful!
Fantastic food as always!
Every dish was as good as the next
We were celebrating a birthday and the special dessert was fantastic
Outstanding lunch. Perfect menu options. Perfect seating for 2 in bar area; a bit more private than back in the more open area. Great receptionist, waiter and table assistant. Presentation was excellent. Flavors well developed. Not rushed. Perfect place to entertain a guest. Thank you for a great experience!
Truly an amazing experience! After 20 years, Kokkari is still setting the standards on how things are done right. From ambiance, service to quality of food and drinks, everything was superb. Jillian took care of us. She patiently described specials of the day and answered our questions. When our water was refilled with water with ice when we had asked for just water, she promptly changed the glass without skipping a beat. Amazing. Thank you!!!
Our server was wonderful and the food was insanely good!!
Amazing fresh Branzino, fabulous Greek food!
It would be nice to have more bar space or another bar in the restaurant where you can sit. Maybe roof top? Just need a little more bar space.
Awesome, great service amazing food overall enjoyed a lot.
Everything was excellent, outstanding. The food was spectacular. The ambience perfect. Our server Was exceptional. Definitely five-star dining.
Good service, amazing food and lovely presentation. Great for business or special guests. Iconic SF restaurant!
Just simply wonderful! staff was as perfect as the food! Delightful!
Food & Service was superb!
The hostess said our table was available and to wait “a few minutes”- if it’s ready, why wait? I went to the bar to wait and told them I wouldn’t be eating, only ordering a drink before sitting down. The bartender ignored me for 18 minutes when only 6 of 16 seats were taken. Purposely avoiding eye contact. The server was nice and the food was good. I will go back but didn’t feel good about this experience.
