Last July we visited the restaurant with my wife for lunch. We enjoyed the food and the service was impeccable. The fish was very fresh and cooked to perfection. The beet salad with yogurt a real delight and the baklava ice-cream a desert from heaven. What a great place we revisit next time we go to San Francisco

As repeat customers we can honestly say that Kokkari is so good that it is painful not to live in San Francisco and eat there regularly. There is no restaurant serving Greek cuisine that can out-perform Kokkari. Everything, from the first course to the last has been consistently outstanding. And the "specials," wow are they special. Typically featured are a... More

We had a most enjoyable dinner a Kokkari. We had a party of five and an 8 week old baby in a carrier. The menu was primarily was primarily Greek but with an international flavour. We choose a range of 5 starters which we shared and then had a selection of main courses ranging from a delicious moussaka to fish... More

We dined at Kokkari with a friend who is a Greek chef and we were WOWED!!! Fresh squash blossoms, Salmon cooked and seasoned perfectly, pork chops the size of a platter and cooked to perfection, whole fish delish!!! The atmosphere is elegant and it's great to have a conversation. We had a booth in an area between two larger rooms...we... More

This resto probably has the best service of the ones I've tried in San Francisco. Despite being full, you won't starve while waiting for your order. Dishes arrive at your table within 5-10 minutes. Servers also provide excellent advise without being pushy. Thumbs up! I sampled 4 starters (the best sellers) and 3 desserts. Here's the verdict: Spanakotiropita (spinach &... More

This is not only a place for great Greek food but also a place to mix with the high and mighty. You will often see former mayor Willie Brown frequenting the bar. Food This is the best Greek food I have had in the United States by far. This is high brow Greek food, no gyros here. Order the Grilled... More

The financial district location was a factor in selecting this restaurant. We enjoyed the ambiance, tony but not stuffy, busy but not too noisy on a Friday night. The roasted duck from the spit in the open fireplace was delicious as were the many dishes that our group of 6 ordered. We had an early seating, but even so the... More

In love with Greek food!!! I made my reservation in advance, like 3 weeks before, and it was everything I was expecting and much more. The food and service were excellent, and the ambiance was very nice. We had dinner for two, we shared and it was enough for both of us; too bad we could not continue eating more!... More
