My wide and I had a great time, here. The food was great and the service was wonderful. Our server, Robin took his time in describing most of the dishes and made us feel as if we were frequent patrons of the restaurant. Excellent service and even better food! Will go again.
Everything was great. I guess this is just a personal matter, your restaurant is busy, sat too close to next table affect privacy a bit
Food was delicious and of high quality and the service great and attentive. I've been coming here for 5+ years and was never once disappointed.
We hadn’t been to Kokkari in quite a while. The front room is still beautiful with a massive fireplace warming the space. The tables are well spaced to allow for the appropriate social distancing when dining indoors.
The food was fabulous. We started with dolmas, fried smelt, and octopus. Entrées were lamb chops and the special rotisserie duck. Pistachio custard for dessert.
Service was outstanding, friendly and attentive but not hovering.
We’ll return, special occasion or not!
Kokkari is one of the best restaurants in San Francisco hands down. I went here to treat my parents after a promotion and they loved it. The ambiance was beautiful and welcoming. The service was fantastic. The food was really good. It tasted very clean and healthy and you could tell the quality of the ingredients was really high, even if they went for a simple flavoring in some dishes so you could taste the quality. My only gripe was the price. In San Francisco it’s really hard at times to find good food at a reasonable price. I would come here all the time if there were dishes at half the price. But I will come here to celebrate only once a year for a special occasion maybe, but it’s honestly too pricey to ever treat myself. Dinner for 3 with shared appetizers, one main dish each, desert and a half bottle of wine was 440 with tip.
Excellent food and service. So many flavors and so delicious
Great service. Excellent food.
Dinner and service was superb! My only complaint was that, while aesthetically pleasing the fireplace was, it was pretty warm in the restaurant. Overall, really nice place!
I could almost smell the Aegean. The warm, welcoming atmosphere is reminiscent of Greece, the food fresh and tasty and the service is unobtrusive yet entertaining. The citrus appetizer and the rice pudding were two of the best dishes I've had anywhere. I will surely return when next my travels find me in San Francisco. Don't hesitate to give this gem a visit.
Kokkari has been one of our favorite restaurants for over 10 years. We love the food and the service has always been lovely. For yesterday’s dinner, the food was as delicious as always, and our waitress, Nina, was outstanding: she was very knowledgeable and made great recommendations for both wine and the combination of dishes. We left happily full, satisfied, but not overly stuffed like we sometimes did. It was a great evening.
Kokkari's is always a sure bet for the best Greek food. The waiters are very nice, helpful and courteous. We have never had a bad meal at Kokkari's. It is our favorite restaurant in San Francisco.
aginares, gigantes, garides, soutsoukakia, skordalia, roka, arnisia paidakia, royal tokaji. what can you say. consistently the best in the city.
Absolutely delicious this time and every time that I go
Table for two 1 foot from another table for two. Covid social distance? We heard every word they said and vice versa.
All else was the usual Kokkari excellence.
Amazing, as always. Couldn’t love it more.
The front room has a lot of cozy to it with upholstered comfy chairs, mood lighting, and a fireplace. I also believe they reduced prices in their new menu or at least if felt like it.
Definitely recommend the spread appetizer.
Fantastic experience. Would gladly go again.
Service was good ambiance was nice food was very overrated from any reviews I read I was expecting to be blown away n I wasn’t in the least. Have had way better Mediterranean food for a lot less money expensive for no treason. If my review was strictly based on the food I’d give it 1 star it was something to eat if you were hungry. When asked what I thought of the food I responded I wasn’t impressed I was told I had a sensitive palet LOL by the waiter . Overall I wasn’t impressed with the food but hey you don’t gotta take my word go spend 200-300$ or more and find out for yourself
Everything was perfect!
Lovely restaurant👍highly recommended.
Kokkari has a wonderful old European ambiance and all the staff are very friendly. The food is delicious and the main entree portions are generous. A wonderful place for date night or for meeting up with friends. It is one of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco. I can't wait to go back.
The restaurant is beautiful. We had a whole sea bass, and it was delicious. We also had a special appetizer of duck-filled dolmas, which were wonderful.
Wonderful Greek restaurant with delicious food and ambience. I recommend deciding on what to order in advance, it's difficult to decide since everything looks so good. Ive been coming to the restaurant for years and never felt rushed into my order except last night we felt rather rushed and pushed into making our selection..
Superb in every way. Our waiter and bus were all excellent and above and beyond. Food was meticulously prepared and delicious. Specials were fantastic. Ambiance is wonderful. Great for a date night or a large group.
Great from food to service TK atmosphere. We can’t wait to go back.
Five adults and two toddlers and the staff were very sweet and accommodating. Every single thing we ordered was really delicious but the octopus was a stand out, amazing texture and flavor. This restaurant is now on the top of our list of SF go-to restaurants!
Never disappoints. Food was tasty, server was attentive (at times a bit much), and the restaurant is cozy
Our go-to restaurant for special occasions. The flavors JUMP off the plate and into your mouth. I had the whole sea bass, and the combination of oil, seasoning and tenderness was all I could ask for.
Great food…priced expensive
Wonderful food and service.
Lovely chance to catch up with a friend at an old favorite. We got a window seat for extra ventilation and masked up to avoid Omicron. So lovely to see Peter and Fatah. Food was exceptional as was the service! It was so nice to enjoy a lovely meal at Kokkari.
Love this place
I am 25 year resident of SF who dines out a lot for both business and leisure. Kokkari is a perennial top choice for for me. Food, service and ambiance are consistently spectacular. Kokkari has maintained their amazing staff through the pandemic and I find it better than ever. Equally great for business lunch or dinner out with friends.
Stopped in for lunch and it was delicious. We had a reservation but, arrived much earlier. The hostess was able to seat us and we had a wonderful lunch.
Everything was amazing. Service and food were fantastic. Highly recommend!
New Years Eve luncheon
Always a fantastic treat to eat at Kokkari - great food great service and great ambiance !
The service is amazing, warm, cozy ambiance. but I am disappointed with the continued rising prices of meals in San Francisco!! the value seems to be hard to understand at $50-60 entrees!!! $30 corkage small appetizer proportion.
The lamb shank is gorgeous (!)) but not as flavorful this time as we recall
Delicioso restaurante, excelente servicio y lugar acogedor, cero pretencioso. Un must en San Francisco
