Was awesome - great food great waiter great experience
Server was great. Was a little concerned sitting so close to a 2- top. Due to Covid-19. Couple was not their out entire meal and no one was seated there after they left.
Kokkari has always been excellent, and one of our favorites. But during our latest visit the food and service surpassed even our very high expectations. The service we received from Valerie was simply outstanding, and the soutzoukakia and the plevrakia were incredible. And of course, every other dish we ordered was excellent as always (lavraki, tsipoura, oktapodaki, marides). Wow, what a treat!
Wonderful experience all around. Great good, great wine, great service.
Fantastic food, great service. Highly recommend.
The food was really good but just a little pricey. The service was beyond great!
Great ambience, and unique interior design. The staff is super polite and well versed - all the suggestions and combinations were spot on. Great for a date night!
It really really breaks my heart to have to write a negative review for my beloved Kokkari. We have been coming here for over 10 years and it has been our favorite restaurant in SF.
But judging from the past 2 visits, there is reason for concern. Last night our main course consisted of: Branzino, Ribyeye Steak, and Moussaka.
The fish was dry and over cooked. Moussaka was really overwhelmed by cinnamon and thin white sauce. But the steak was the ultimate disappointment. Very lump and tons of connective tissue that make it hard to cut and chew. What’s more disappointing is that I specifically asked our waiter if he could make sure we get a good piece of steak.
The desserts I am happy to report were as lovely as always.
I hope the overwhelming number of new staff will not result in a permanent drop in quality. One more negative experience and even die hard fans like us will have to look for a new favorite.
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!
Kokkari every time is a hit!! Food, drinks, service is all stellar super star amazing.
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.
