An evening of first class service and food. We only wish we could get a second chance to return and dine once more. From the staff to the food, we coul dnot find fault. Great wines under our budget as well. Strongly recommend you dine two appitizers and three mains, taking one home with you !

If you are looking for a good meal with great atmosphere for business, romance or friendship, this is a place for that. Different parts of the Estiatorio are conducive for one of the above. For example, the ground level window seating is quite romantic, main room seating inside for friends catching up or for colleagues shooting the breeze. Downstairs (... More

Eating here once or twice a year, we never leave here less than very happy with the whole "package." Menu is very broad as to choices, food is sometimes superb, generally excellent and never less than very good. Can't speak about desserts because we always fill up on irresistible appetizers & main courses, better than any meal I've had on... More

We visited 2 nights ago and tried several appetizers and a few entrees. I asked the waiter for guidance towards the "house specialties" and he was very amusing and helpful. Grilled octopus was good but not outstanding - nice grilled flavor, but it was a bit bland - possibly due to lack of salt. The octopus we had last year... More

In a town full of excellent restaurants, Kokkari ranks among the best. It is Greek dining at its best. A wonderful atmosphere; a really good "vibe"; a varied, interesting and well prepared menu; good location; great bar; accommodating staff and superb food. One has to ask, what's not to like. I have been to Kokkari on two occasions and enjoyed... More

We live in NYC where there are excellent Greek restaurants and have been to Greece. Yet Kokkari is one of the best Greek restaurants we have visited. The food is absolutely superb, the decor is wonderful and the service is outstanding!!! No surprise that this restaurant is number one on TripAdvisor! You must try the zucchini cakes and the ravioli!... More

My business partners and I recently found this place and tried it out on a business trip out to the Bay area earlier this year. We were scouting out different properties, and asked some locals if they recommended any Greek places. Almost all of them said to try Kokkari Estiatorio. It surpassed our expectations! We had to wait a while... More

We were very excited to be dining here after reading the reviews. Unfortunately we were left disappointed! The service was excellent. Our starters were brilliant. Although they came 10 minutes apart which was really annoying. We weren't offered any bread like other tables. Our main courses were average and not to the expectations we had. The portion size was fairly... More
