One of our few opportunities to celebrate indoor dining at Kokkari during the pandemic, only to find out that this was the last day based on the new rules. We had a delightful time and enjoyed a sumptuous meal. THANK YOU!!
Always top notch. Favorite restaurant in SF!
Always the best. So happy to be back. 17 year customer. Efharisto kokkari
Exceptions as always
Always have an amazing experience at Kokkari as have been going to this institution for almost 15 years. Food is consistent perfect and very light and delicious. Service is wonderful and attentive and always great to see the owners inside - very sad to see restaurants having to shut down indoor dining again and wish the team very best
Everything is always so good and the very best.
Great food as always and the food was outstanding
Our meal was exceptional. It was the first time we dined inside in San Francisco, and felt safe and isolated enough to enjoy our dinner without excessive worry. The service, food and ambiance are always a stand out — and somehow, despite the chaos and challenge of the times — Kokkari has preserved the excellence and delivered a fantastic experience without compromise.
Apps are all so good!!! Would definitely go back here. And went during Covid and they've done an excellent job of adding plastic between bar seats and the tables without making it look like cubicles. Great ambiance and food!
Food is ok, nothing outstanding. Our server was nice, but it took forever to get our drinks. We were being served our food before we got our drinks. Seemed like they were unorganized.
An amazing dinner! Great service!
It was nice but I felt that it was slightly over priced. I would have liked to see a more interesting presentation. I had the Halibut which was very good. However, in this price range I would expect it to be “fancier” ... maybe add a few interesting vegetables, etc. But overall the halibut was cooked perfectly and my dinner companion ordered lamb meatballs which were amazing. The atmosphere was just okay.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the lamb souvlaki and the whole roasted branzino (Mediterranean sea bass). We also felt very safe relative to COVID concerns as the restaurant had taken great care with spacing and erecting attractive plexiglass barriers as needed throughout the various seating areas.
We had an excellent experience - great food and service, with COVID-19 protocols clearly in place. Great menu and wine list. The lamb chops and baklava ice cream are must-haves.
One of the best restaurants in San Francisco ,
If not the best .
Must order the octopus , zucchini cakes , Greek salad and of course lamb chops !
Finish with there sundae.
Good food. Probably the best Greek cuisine in SF. We went with food indoor seating and good food but I have had better Greek food in Detroit and New York. Best in SF!
Fantastic meal and service. Highly recommended Greek restaurant in San Francisco.
Great food, great service and great ambiance
Very irritated by 20% service (plus tax!). Always tip well, but the management seems to want us to pay extra, and waiter wasn’t willing to call it a “tip”. What part of “servizio incluso” isn’t clear? If you want to raise revenue, increase your prices, but don’t confuse and insult you loyal customers
Amazing food in a beautiful, safe, open air setting. Fabulous!
Always amazing food and experience at kokkari!! Glad it’s reopened! Waited a few weekends for a table on Sunday, but well worth the wait! They are doing an excellent job during the quarantine with distancing and alcohol based hand rub stations as well as masks on employees!
Our party of four dined here for a birthday celebration. We were never able to get a reservation in prior years so finally getting to appreciate Kokkari was wonderful and worth the wait. First of all our waiter was great-helpful, friendly and attentive with good suggestions when asked. We had several excellent appetizers. The octopus in particular was outstanding. I had a grilled trout which was wonderful. Their wine list is extensive with many affordable choices. We’ll be back.
Kokkari is by far the BEST Greek food I've ever eaten including the meals my family and I had in Greece! From all the amazing appetizers, to soup and salad, delicious entrees, and decadent dessert, every single bite was absolutely divine!
Enjoyed our lunch and will be back. I would categorize the cost of lunch as expensive.
Our server Anna Rose was fantastic !
Excellent food and usually great service makes this restaurant a must try. Excellent wine selection but lacking in spirits.
We had a wonderful time in one of our favorite San Francisco restaurants.The staff were wonderful and they are very aware of the covid requirements and we felt very comfortable while we enjoyed the 1st class service and food .Everything was great.
Amazing peach appetizer and whole fish petrale sole.
Service is impeccable. Food is divine. Ambience is beautiful. Amazing as always.
Todd provided excellent service.
Dinner with my husband.
So happy to be able to dine at Kokkari again. The food is amazing and we were craving their lamb chops! Service was fantastic as always.
As always everything was amazing. It is our favorite restaurant in San Francisco. We will keep coming back❤️
There is a reason that Kokkari is always rated as one of the best restaurants in SF. We are so glad to see them open again. Everything was perfect, as usual.
Food was delicious as always. Hadn’t been since prior to the pandemic- I’ve missed it. I do wish they somehow were able to have outdoor seating- the food is perfect for it.
Our waiter was not the most warm person ever. He came, took our order, and it was brought to us in a timely manner. A robot could have filled in for him. Even with that, I would go back.
Indoor dining - was extremely well thought out, safe, and professional. Will be back again.
The grilled octopus appetizer was tender & delicious.
The heirloom tomato salad with arugula was light, healthy & also delicious.
The riblet appetizer was falling off the bone, and also delicious.
Save room for the Kokkari Sundae desert.
The wait staff was attentive & extremely pleasant while explaining everything in easy-to-understood layman’s terns.
Excellent food as always at Kokkari for our first time back to a restaurant in the Covid era.
I was not quite sure how allowing dining indoors would work but all seemed ok. I think that there could have been more spacing between tables, and maybe more windows open for ventilation, but overall they did a good job with the new regulations.
The food was of course, great. Service a bit slow between courses, but not all that bad, really. My only complaint was that the total cost was pretty high, but I sort of expected that. Overall I would have no peroblem recommending Kokkari, one of SF's long-standing culinary highlights!
Very consistently fantastic food. By far my favorite Greek restaurant in SF, and a must if you have never been.
