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!
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.
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!!!
Very creative food. You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu
Always a perfect dining experience. Perfect service, extraordinary food, and a beautiful setting. It’s just a totally reliable can’t-miss place.
Fantastic service, delicious food and drinks. Can't wait to return.
Great place. Full for lunch. A good reminder of pre-pandemic dining
This is everyone's favorite restaurant. My first time back since reopening and did not disappoint. The staff is incredibly efficient, friendly and happy to see you. Food is exquisite, My friend and I shared the greek salad and the lamb souvlaki then followed with the Hot Fudge Sundae -- all perfection.
One of the top great SF restaurants. Terrific food, great service,
Great to eat out again!
Listed on reservation, this was our anniversary dinner. Nothing happened, no acknowledgement. Would be fine, if it wasn’t asked.
Food was ok. High expectations, fell kinda of short.
Had the zucchini cakes , were cold and pre-made . We ordered it and within mins it was at table before other appetizers.
Ribeye asked for med, got med rare. Pretty salty as well.
Roast chicken was pretty typical rotisserie chicken. Shouldn’t be part of the overall menu
Ice cream sundae was pretty typical too.
Overall, ok experience, definitely not coming back. Spent over $200 for ok food and experience.
Wish standards were raised a bit more overall on all areas.
Outstanding grilled octopus and Maroulosalata salad. Tried their lamb riblets for the first time and these were crispy, juicy and delicious. Their Whole Lavraki fish never disappoints.
Celebrated my wife’s 50th Birthday! Having been to Kokkari before, we were not disappointed at all! Thank you to all the staff that made our evening a very special one! Can’t wait to dine when the spit roasted lamb is in season!
Please let me know in advance and we are there!
Cheers to your great staff and AMAZING cuisine!
