Kokkari (pronounced “Ko-Kar-ee”) is a small fishing village located on the islands of Samos in the Aegean Sea, whose name is derived from the small onions that were once produced in the nearby fields. Its fertile soil and Mediterranean climate translated into an abundance of fresh produce as well as treasured seafood and game. Legend tells that Kokkari is the site where Orion, a mighty hunter and a young man of gigantic stature and great beauty, fell in love with the daughter of the king of Chios. For the love of her, Orion forged the island for wild game and seafood to prepare elaborate banquets in celebration of their love. Today, we hope you will enjoy your own celebration as you dine at Kokkari Estiatorio on food “fit for the Gods” prepared with an Aegean palate and the style of innovative California fare.

Always outstanding in every way. There was an initial glitch because the people at our table weren't leaving, so they seated us at a different table. But as soon as "our" table was ready... everything was fabulous. Great server, great food, great service. No negatives. plus - Yum!!!!

Kokkari never disappoints. Have been coming to this gem for many years. It is our go-to destination for special occasions thanks to the wonderful service and always delicious food. The appetizers are always great, especially the beans, the zucchini cakes, the meatballs, and the various mediterranean dips. The lamb special is gigantic but tasty and the whole fish options are always among our favorites. Will keep coming back, when we are luck enough to get a reservation!

I was taken out to lunch for my birthday. The two of us shared two appetizers, a salad and one main dish. It was plenty of food.

The service was less than attentive. There were two times when our dishes were basically thrown on the table with no acknowledgement of us at all.

The food was average, the prices were not! Our best dish of the day was the Jerusalem artichokes that we’re sautéed with preserved lemon and bacon bits. We had the prawn appetizer. The prawns were tasteless.

For our main dish we had a whole fish, a bream which was a bit dried out. Dessert of fresh fruit and coffee was good.

I will not be returning.

Excellent in every aspect - can't wait to return. It isn't inexpensive, however, but was well worth the price.
