Went with a friend. The service was great and the food was even better. Highly recommend to those looking for a place to eat downtown close to everything.

Food was great. We had to wait a little while even though we had reservations. The food was very good and we had a nice booth by the window.

Service was terrific: knowledgeable, friendly without being familiar. A professional wait-staff you seldom find anymore in the US. The setting is fabulous: the roaring fire, the open kitchen, the European windows, the wood throughout. We had the zucchini fritters and the octopus, the two biggest selling appetizers. The fritters with the tzakiki were great. The octopus was very good but... More

I was on my own in SanFrancisco and this is always a little dismal but decided to try the number one rated restaurant on Tripadvisor in SanFrancisco. I did not have reservations and sat at the bar and had appetizers recommended by the delightful bar man. He recommended a variety of tastes and they were all very unusual and delicious.... More

This venue was about what I expected. Nothing wrong with it but not as outstanding as reviews would lead one to believe. Big, lots of staff and a pleasant bustle about it., but hardly for foodies. Probably good for business or large groups

I made a reservation about 3 weeks in advance. We wanted to eat around 7pm, but the only thing available was at 8:15pm, so we took it! The restaurant was busy and had a cool, casual vibe. We had the grilled calami starter (good) and the special rotisserie whole lamb. They cut off a variety of different cuts for this... More

I have chosen Kokkari twice for celebrating my anniversary and will never visit San Francisco without a visit. I am half Greek and therefore know great Greek food. The ambiance is always lovely and the restaurant is big with several dining rooms. Fresh cut bread is brought to the table which is delicious and means you have to make yourself... More

I've been to several Greek restaurants in Northern California with my Greek friends and this place is the best among the Greek restaurants. Reservations strongly recommended, they have difficulties accommodating parties larger than 6. Each dish was served at the correct temperature, perfectly seasoned (mint in the lamb meatballs is delicious), and each dish is amazingly delicious. What a treat.... More

Went to the restaurant to entertain a group of business clients and it was a great experience. After have lived 3 years in Greece, working as a tour guide I know my Greek food, and know when it's good or not. This place is authentic, and served traditional Greek. We ordered a bunch of different appetizers for the table which... More

We went here twice - first for lunch and then for dinner on our last night. Very busy and we had to book well ahead both times to get a table. The Greek food was as close as we have ever had to the food we have had in Greece itself. Also the summer fruits pudding (a personal favourite of... More
