Kikkari is that good. just as good as all reviews report. Our experience was just as nice as it has been for the last 3 years. We eat here each year when we visit The City. The service, the decor, the ambiance is all that you read about. One of the dishes that I particularly like is the fired smelts.... More

Every single dish is delicious at Kokkari. The grilled octopus is beautiful and simple with a slight char. All the spreads are perfectly done. The lamb is so flavorful. I am obsessed with their yogurt with fruit and honey. I think about it's perfect consistency and flavor. The atmosphere is great and the service is excellent. This is a great... More

Food is fantastic. The restaurant is pricey but the food makes up for it. The restaurant itself is a rustic, professional yet cozy location with great service. The lamb dishes are amazing and the calamari appetizer was incredible. The noise level is perfect to bring clients to. Gem.

What an experience. Food was simply outstanding, drinks were paired perfectly, but most of all the ambience is out of this world. Classy. Will for sure come back.

This restaurant is the quintessential SF restaurant. The food is great. Simple, delicious, and beautiful. The service is friendly and not pressured. The atmosphere is a dream. Expect the best in greek food that Northern California has to offer. Order the lamb, the meatballs, the octopus, the moussaka, the greek yogurt and the beignets. Don't miss the fresh whole grilled...

Several friends had told me that Kokkari was a fantastic restaurant, and coming from San Franciscans, that's saying something. But the results matched the recommendations. My guest and I sampled a wide variety of items. We started with the Saghanaki (they aren't allowed to flame it tableside), grilled meatballs, and Tahtziki with homemade pita. Entrees included the grilled lamb chops... More

It is hard to go wrong with Kokkari. The dishes our party of four had were all good. Emphasis was on fish, but there were plenty of meet dishes. The wine list was extensive and a bit pricy. It is a perfect place for a business dinner. Large restaurant with private areas.

Heard a lot about it, so made a date to visit with my friend Lori who is a regular. Charming/elegant ambiance, food and service live up to its #1 SF restaurant rating. Calamari stuffed with feta was excellent, and they had horta! My favorite was Gigantes ("giant beans") drizzled with pesto -- an unexpected, sublime touch validated by a hometown... More

We arrived half an hour early for our 10pm reservation. We availed of the $12 valet parking instead of going in circles looking for parking. I was sort of expecting five star service the moment we stepped in but the hostess was busy assisting the party ahead of us. It would have been better if she at least acknowledged us... More
