Loved our meal here. Wine list is excellent and server was phenomenal. Would highly recommend the goat stew, whole sea bass fish and lamb chops.
Great drinks, yummy food, impeccable service, and amazing atmosphere!
We had a great birthday meal for our dad. It was a wonderful night.
It was lunch and we were seated immediately at a table for two in a comfortable large room.
The selections from the menu were so tantalizing it was easy and hard to choose as it all seemed so appetizing....but I know my limitations. We decided to select from the starter courses and realized there are enough tastes within this section to satisfy a whole meal. The waiter was excellent and made us feel as though we could never make a mistake.
Next visit dinner.
Always delicious food and professional service. I’ve never had a dish that wasn’t excellent. The quality of the food is always consistent on each visit.
Excellent as always.
Kokkari never disappoints. It’s a beautiful restaurant with amazing food and outstanding service. It always feels like a special occasion! Service was excellent, food was delicious; from zucchini cakes to avgolemeno soup to a big, beautiful lamb shank and a plate of roast lamb from the rotisserie. Baklava and chocolate cake for our desserts were both delicious and an after dinner drink of scotch or grappa topped it off perfectly. The service was thoughtful, friendly and attentive—and they didn’t rush us out, which we really appreciated. So glad Kokkari is still in business and doing so well—a San Francisco institution.
Great meal and our server was amazing!!
Everything was great except for work training which was occurring right behind us during most of our meal. Food and service on point, our seating area was tucked away in the dark during lunch which didn’t add to our experience.
Consistently great food and great service. It’s one of our favorite restaurants in SF. The whole fish (Lavraki) is not to be missed!
Lovely look forward to dining there again.
Awesome as usual. I would live here if I could 😀
Kokkari is one of my favorite Greek restaurants in SF! Ever since my old boss took us to this restaurant I am hooked on coming back! Every time I take my friends to Kokkari they also enjoy their dining experience. The food, the friendly staff and the ambiance never cease to amaze me. Will be coming back here again and again!
Excellent quality food and the staff was amazing. Truly a great experience.
Before getting seated we were told to vacate the table in 90 minutes.
Based on above, they rushed thru our order and brought all 5 appetizers together. Immediately after finishing appetizers they brought our main course.
No concept of spacing meals.
No changing table and our infant boy was not comfortable.
On top of all this the restaurant had a preset 20% gratuity.
While having desert and tea, our server brought the bill!! Of course no fault of his but he was merely doing his job as asked by the restaurant manager.
Been to kokkari several times but in order to make up for lost revenue during close in covid, the restaurant took short cuts.
Overall exp was very disappointing and would recommend parents and others for that matter to avoid this restaurant. There are much better restaurants in SF.
My favorite San Francisco restaurant of any type. Authentic Greek food and a significant number of Greek wines.
Great evening, I have never had a bad meal in 20 years@Kokkari!
The food the staff the whole evening was perfect.
Last week was our first inside dining at Kokkari since Covid began, We celebrated a great birthday lunch with amazing service and outstanding food.The restaurant continues to be one of the best in the city. We will definitely return soon .
We do not get to go here very often, and it can be a challenge to get a reservation sometimes. But OMG! Every time we go we are overwhelmed by the very simple PERFECTION of the meal. Grilled sea bass with asparagus - perfectly cooked - moist with crispy skin! How do they do that? Grilled lamb chops - medium rare and fabulous! Grilled shrimp and garlic appetizer - again - juicy and crispy at once! Amazing! The service by Valerie was attentive without being intrusive. We cannot recommend this place more highly!
Recommend the riblets, lemon soup, and lamb skewers. Service exceptional, wine list well thought out.
Excellent food and great for a celebration. Service was very attentive and helped make a very enjoyable dinner.
I have never had anything here that I didn't like. We usually just order a ton of appetizers and drinks to get more variety. The lamb meatballs are my favorite.
This place is terrific. Really good, authentic Greek food. Service was the best. Lamb and goat dishes are special and delicious.
Loved the food and the ambiance--it's a wonderful place to go for lunch or dinner and I've been enjoying it with friends, family and coworkers for many years. A little pricey, but definitely worth it.
The old Kokkari is back! So nice to see the fabulous menu, have the lovely service and enjoy the vibe and buzz of Kokkari again!
Delicious food with cozy ambiance
Kokkari never disappoints! Excellent food and amazing service. Highly recommended.
Amazing meal and the restaurant is beautiful. We will definitely go back.
The food and service were very good. Our table's lighting behind the host stand and next to the window was not inviting. My husband and I felt separated from the lovely ambiance of the rest of the dining room. The lighting at that particular table was too bright. We did not ask to be moved but perhaps we should have. Our mistake. Overall, a very good dining experience. We have dined here several times and will come again when we visit SF.
VERY GOOD FOOD, PERFECT FOR GETTING TOGETHER WITH FRIENDS.
The atmosphere is beautiful. Being an authentic Greek, I was a little disappointed with the food. Nothing special for the highly overpriced items on the menu. Kolokeptedes were worth it but nothing else.. bread was swerved cold.
I was celebrating my birthday..the total amount we paid for dinner it would’ve been nice if dessert could’ve been complimentary..anyway...
So happy to see our favorite restaurant in the City has survived and with the same excellent food and service!
Delicious food and top not service star to finish. Will return soon. Highly recommend!
Food was fine. Dining room was totally full despite SF still in yellow tier Covid restrictions. Seems like management used 50% limit based on total allowed occupancy including private rooms to achieve their 50% occupancy. Tells me something about how management considers the safety of their guests.
Thank you for outstanding service and quality. Really helped our celebration event.
I’ve been going to Kokkari for many years now and it never disappoints. The service is stellar and unpretentious. The food is delicious and the atmosphere so charming.
I was a little surprised at how many people were there despite restrictions being lifted on indoor dining. That’s on me but I did think they would have less capacity than pre-Covid. Anyways, it was wonderful and I’m grateful to be able to patronize them again.
We came here for a birthday lunch. The food here is really great. Also unusual with its Greek theme. Service is very good even though we had a trainee. We had wine by the glass. Their selection is somewhat limited and a bit pricey.
Excellent as always. Can't wait to come back again.
