Grilled Lamb Chops
With lemon-oregano vinaigrette & Kokkari potatoes
With lemon, oregano & olive oil
Traditionally grilled with braised greens, lemon & Cretan olive oil
I love everything here from the crackling fire rotisserie to the wine selection to excellent and fresh Greek cuisine, caring wait staff and the Greek coffee!
Always a pleasure coming here, and particularly more so after such a long strange year. It was great to see people out having a normal good time. All the food and service were as good as ever.
It is pretty expensive, but if you are concerned about the price note that the entrée portions are generous. Two people can easily split most of them (maybe not the lamb chops, but definitely just about everything else). Get some of the delicious appetizers and vegetables and you have meal that is very reasonably priced. Or simply go for it and be fed like a king and queen.
Was fantastic to be back.
Always amazing and never disappoints! Best Greek food in the bay!
Loved it! Service is so professional and the food is awesome!!
They handle the COVID restrictions very well. It is still my favorite SF restaurant.
So happy to be back!
Kokkari is one of the best restaurants in San Francisco!
Both the food and staff are excellent! We have missed Kokkari and it was wonderful to be back with them for our first inside lunch in over a year. It was a special occasion for us in many ways (we have a long standing tradition of doing celebratory lunches at Kokkari around every holiday and special occasion) and the food, staff and ambience made it perfect. I highly recommend it.
Lamb shank to die for. Excellent attentive service.
Oh how I missed being there. So glad to be back and dining indoors. I couldn’t wait to have the smelts, one of the few places to get them. Had the fish, delicious, dessert was yummy as well. Can’t wait to go back!
Because this has been a very popular restaurant in recent years, we felt lucky to get in even for lunch.
Moussaka & Octopus Salad were delicious & the server was attentive & friendly. The indoor ambiance during the day was as good as at night. Because of the limited capacity, the noise level was non issue.
As long as we’re able to make a reservation without difficulty, we’d be coming back here more often. Once the pandemics becomes under control, I’m sure it’d be a challenge to get a table, though.
Food is always great. Wasn't as lively as normal since we were there for a mid-week lunch and with the minimal seating covid rules, but the service and food was on point. Love Kokkari.
Well it was weird. I was there with a date for my birthday. We clearly were dressed up as a couple. We were given a table in the hallway to the dining room in the back. We were listening to the clanging of the glasses and silverware because there was the workers station. We we seated with large parties around us. The gentleman who checked us in did little if any to observe us as a couple and put us in a huge table by the station and large parties. I was very disappointed. He should had noticed that and did a better job. This was the 28th of March at 730 p.m. I wasn't impressed with him at all.
Kokkari has been my favorite restaurant for over ten years now. I was happy to be able to make a reservation once the restaurant cold start operating and taking guests in.
We ordered our usual favorites : grilled octopus and the spreads as an appetizer. The portions have turned significantly smaller (like half what they used to serve). It was the first time in 10 years that our waitress had to write down the orders and did not make any wine parings or mentioned the daily special... It was a completely different experience from the ones we always enjoyed so much. Plus, now the restaurant is now charging 20% the total bill... I am hoping we get a better experience and more food next time .
Both food and service are always great - which explains why it is hard to get a reservation there!
This is my second time at Kokkari. Food and service were amazing as always. For our main course, we had the sea bass and rib eye. This is probably the best rib eye in the city. I’m not usually a cooked fish person (particularly whole fish), BUT this sea bass blew me away. It was amazing! James D was our server. He was amazing! Great, smooth service and very personable.
good food, service and ambiance however being a Greek restaurant and being March 25, Greek Independence Day celebrating the BiCentennial, I expected some form of celebration..... also some Greek Music.
Kokkari always delivers. Was great to enjoy a meal indoors. Staff is professional, courteous, and very conscious of safety.
It was perfect the food was delicious and the service was exceptional
We had a lovely lunch at Kokkari restaurant on a beautiful sunny day in San Francisco. The dining room has such a lovely ambiance with the large windows open. We shared a perfect Greek salad, lamb meatballs, and the lamb riblets. Everything was delicious! Their lamb is some of the best I've ever had! Our dessert was a yogurt ice cream with fruit granita that was outstanding!
Great food, cannot wait to come back and taste their quality dishes again!
Great to be back "inside" Kokkari. They haven't lost a step. Nothing was cooking in the fireplace, but we were distanced. There were partitions. The service was very good and the food was still excellent. I hear the new strawberry salad is "bomb."
Always wonderful, food always amazing!!! Highly recommend for all special occasions.
Food, service, ambiance was perfect! Authentic Greek food in a quiet mediterranean setting. Service was very professional and friendly.
Always a pleasure to be at this restaurant. Our server James went above and beyond to make us feel at home and welcome. Food was fabulous as always and Covid protections were just right. We will be back
My boyfriend and I were so happy to be able to come back and enjoy an amazing meal in our favorite city. We absolutely love Kokkari and all that is has to offer. Our experience was nothing short of amazing and delicious! We cannot wait to come back.
Great service, great food!
Our server was very stoic and not friendly. Came off a bit rude at first. Food was good but how amazing I remember it from 2 years ago.
The food was outstanding and I REALLY recommend the rice pudding for dessert. Also great selection of wine and very fine environment.
I had a wonderful time with my date
Everything was perfect
Kokkari is an amazing restaurant if you have the $ to afford fine-dining. It’s a classy interior with multiple wood-beamed high-ceiling dining rooms that reminds me of a large home. All the dishes are amazing including steak, chicken, etc but they are famously known for their lamb chops. So many wines and other alcohol to choose from. I definitely recommend this for a dinner date or special occasion.
Todd is an amazing server !
Great service. Great food.
This is one of my favorite restaurants and I have taken many friends and family there over the years. They have done an outstanding job of protecting their customers with the use of extended space between tables and the use of plexiglass. The only reason I did not rate the food as a 5 is that given their limited seating ability they do not have the usual wide menu choice nor specials that they would have under normal circumstances.
Wonderful experience as always wonderful restaurant consistently great people service and food. Appreciate this Institution and it’s staff
One of the biggest disappointments...EVER.
I had to complain twice, and send the food back, to which, they still couldn’t get it right.
Note: Medium rare is NOT fully red everywhere with blood oozing out. That term is called “RARE”
I asked twice and both times you ignored me.
But at least you charged a 20% service fee because of covid.
🤮🤮🤮 Shame on you
It’s our favorite spot in the city. Food is always great and service is wonderful. We love this place.
