My wife and I had dinner at Kokkari and had a wonderful evening. The food was excellent and the service was great. We look forward to returning on our next visit to San Francisco.

Coming from Montreal, we are spoiled with good Greek restaurants. This restaurant gives MTL restaurants a run for their money. When it comes to Greek food I am very picky and I must say this restaurant is excellent!!! A true gem and I could understand how it's rated #1 on trip advisor. I sat at the bar and ordered lamb...

The restaurant is very nice in one f the nicest neighborhoods in San Francisco for dining. The setting is nice and elegant. The liquors list has a lot of options in wines in bottles, half bottles and by the glass... More

This was our first trip to San Francisco and a celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary. We were so excited to get a reservation at the #1 Tripadvisor rated restaurant in the city. HUGE disappointment. Even after calling to confirm our reservation, we waited 35 minutes to be seated. No apologies. The hostess seemed overwhelmed and cranky. The gentleman who... More

Our final night in San Francisco finished with a flourish at the very well-recommended Greek restaurant Kokkari Estiatorio. Despite the heavy reservations we managed a booking at 9.30pm on a Wednesday night, and the staff were happy to accommodate when we arrived slightly early. Our meal consisted of dolmathes and calamari as appetisers, the lamb rotisserie and moussaka as mains... More

I was surprised by this elegant Greek restaurant. I had never experienced this level of fine Greek food. It was sumptuous. The restaurant was elegant and the service - first class. The only drawback was that it was very difficult to secure a reservation on a weekend despite the restaurant being quite large. Don't get me wrong, you never feel... More

The restaurant is at the top of SF places to eat for a reason. The staff is professional and will do whatever they can to make your experience a good one. The food is out of this world and is not your every day greek dining experience. They menu has original offerings that will delight. If it has a lamb... More

The food, atmosphere and decor was amazing. We started with several appetizers, each was delicious. The beans were superb. Our entrees was super and the portions were ample. Dessert was a treat. Do not miss this restaurant.

This is a must try when in San Francisco. The food and service is outstanding. Highly recommended. We were visiting from Toronto on our minimoon and were greeted with a two glasses of champaign! Very kind gesture. I will eat here every time I go to San Francisco.
