Our first time together in SF and our lunch and service could not have been better. What a treat! The octopus and zucchini cakes were exquisite!
Family of 5 visiting from NJ. We had Jimmy as our waiter and he was a great source of tips and advice. He was also very funny. Our dinner from the appetizers to the main meal to the desserts we shared- was perfect. It was delicious and totally worth the time and money. Go here if you want an excellent and unforgettable meal- and don’t eat anything before you go ;)
We had a great time. Our waiter was perfect, great service, attentive but not too attentive and he had a great sense of humor. The grilled octopus was to die for!
This was one of the best dining experiences ever.
The ambiance in each of the rooms offers you a wonderful experiences - high ceilings, beautiful bar, nice lighting with windows and a quieter smaller back room! The service is terrific and they time the dishes to your pace! We have always had servers with the right balance of friendliness and helpfulness, never overbearing or rushing! The food is so consistently good and wonderfully spiced!
El pulpo espectacular, todo delicioso, muy buen servicio, nos encantó.
I love this restaurant and it is my yearly birthday treat. It was not up to normal standard for Kolkati this time & I was dissatisfied & disappointed. Our server was not friendly at first, he ignored us and was verging on rude. We weren’t asking for anything unusual just asked him to repeat himself( I have hearing issues especially in a noisy restaurant). He seemed put out & ignored us for awhile until we started ordering big-then we got his attention. The food was average this time-not up to their normal standards. The octopus was way overdone, bordering on being tough. My partner said he wouldn’t order it again. The beans were excellent but the special, the peppers, were very average. My dessert was excellent. The highlight should have been the octopus salad but it was rubbery and tough. Anyways a miss from a restaurant that is usually a hit. Disappointing especially on my birthday.
It was terrible sitting so close to the next tablet especially because the couple next to us was having a very loud disturbing conversation and really ruined our special dinner.
Our waiter was really great!!
Absolutely my favorite restaurant in San Francisco!
Everything was great except the Greek coffee arrived after the dessert. We wanted coffee with dessert.
Waitress, Valerie was outstanding
Service was amazing and food great!
Muy buen lugar, excelente ambiente, comida deliciosa, buen servicio!
I picked this restaurant to celebrate my birthday with my BFF, the staff were amazing and so kind with us, food was exquisite and the service from hostess, busser and our server Gilberto were outstanding, this experience is so far the best and my guests were happy and even to tell other friends to join us for future dining
Thank you so much for make my birthday celebration unforgettable the place is beautiful
The BEST experience. We decided to order only appetizers; smelts, prawns, zucchini
cakes, sampler plate. Plenty for two. All super delicious. Our server (wish I could remember his name) suggested cocktails called Paper Airplanes. We loved them. Dessert was the one with apricot pastries and pistachio ice cream, yummy. The table was so comfortable as we could watch the passing parade of customers. The whole experience was sublime. I wish I could remember our superb server's name for shout out. All the servers were top line professionals. Friendly, helpful staff. Thank you Kokkari!
Always a pleasure to dine there. Truly excellent. Lunch is a perfect option, too, because dinner reservations are so hard to come by.
We keep coming back to Kokkari. The food and service is just absolutely amazing!
Excellent lamb and chicken. We’ll prepared and tasty. Very crowded and no masks at all on customers.
We had four appetizers and the roast chicken and lamb. As always, everything was delicious and service was 5 stars.
Wonderful experience too good bottom
Our favorite restaurant in San Francisco! Always consistent.
Server had too many customers all at the same time. But when she did get to use, she was a perfect server.
The hostess did a wonderful job managing the large crowd of people arriving at the restaurant at the same time. Our server was top notch. The food was absolutely delicious.
Wonderful food and service per usual. Amazing ambiance.
Excellent food and outstanding service. Our winner was the grilled octopus.
This is my favorite SF restaurant. I have been here numerous times and the food and service do not disappoint. Fabulous all around. Lamb is a speciality! We asked to sit in the corridor connecting the front dining room with the large dining room where the kitchen is. It is my favorite place to sit as the noise level is less. Great service, fabulous food -- such a treat!
The food is consistently delicious and the service is excellent. It is a pricey restaurant, but the quality of the food and service make it a good value. Recommended.
Valerie is a gracious, efficient, perfect server
the food was delicous, and the service impeccable.
many declious things to choose from.
i'd go back again.
I have yet to be blown away by the SF food scene. Everything from food to service was good, not great. But definitely a better choice than other dining options in the area that charge about the same but serve poor quality food. Would have to return and try some other items on the menu to get a better idea of their menu. Overall was please by the quality and experience of our meal last night but just can’t quite give them an outstanding score yet.
The food has been consistently great with good service!
It had been years since I enjoyed a meal here. I cant believe it fell off my radar for so long.
- The service was incredible. Attentive and professional without being stuffy, while also being warm like a trusted friend who’s advice you respect. The waiter helped with recommendation and every single one was perfect. Honestly, some of the best I’ve ever experienced and I dine out often.
- Brilliant! Everything was fresh, beautifully presented, flavorful, exciting, balanced.
- The Greek wines were like taking a much needed vacation. Loved them all.
I’m looking forward to returning and already have another reservation booked.
Kokkari is my favorite restaurant in San Francisco. Fabulous Greek food, wonderful ambiance - especially if you are near the large fireplace with various meats roasting, great service, a little expensive but worth it.
Peter and Thomas were excellent!
We enjoyed every bite! Such delicious food - really incredible experience.
This is a guaranteed winner regardless of the reason for being there.
The ambiance is one of my favorites in the City.
The food is superb from appetizer to dessert.
The worst thing about the place is you eventually need to leave.
As always, food was excellent however, hostess and server were surly making for a less pleasant experience. People can stay at home to eat - friendly staff contribute to the success of a restaurant.
I planned my friends birthday dinner here. 4 of us. I told the waitstaff on my reservation and the waiter directly they we had a birthday and that is like to do a little desert with candle to acknowledge the event.
He brought the check without ever allowing us to have dessert. We were pushed out of our table because someone else had a reservation after us. It was so rude and uncomfortable and unprofessional and I it was not at all service oriented. The city is becoming so rude and the dining experience was so low. I would prefer to go to another restaurant after that experience.
The Best..by far..Greek Restaurant in USA!!!
