By far one of my favorite places in San Francisco. We were a party of 4, and ordered 3 appetizers, along with 3 main courses, 3 bottles of wine and dessert. Every single thing was absolutely delicious. The customer service was beyond great, and the place is really nice. Two thumbs up!!! I would love to come back

As soon as we entered, we knew it was going to be good. It was better than that. It was a room made up of cozy nooks of all sizes, perfectly setting the stage for a delightful meal. The bar was beautiful. There were enormous windows all around the earthy room. There were two lambs - later, one lamb and... More

I arranged a small business dinner at Kokkari after reading the reviews. It was all that was raved about and then some. The staff were incredible, the food was beyond delicious. We started with apps and recommend you do. The grilled octopus was out of this world. Our wine choice was perfect.

My wife and I recently spent a wonderful evening here. The ambiance is warm and inviting. The service was friendly and professional. The food was absolutely wonderful. So many great flavors.

My wife and I were looking forward to having our anniversary dinner here. We truly enjoyed the entire meal and the service was top-notch. The grilled whole fish was the highlight of the meal. The lamb chops were great but not noteworthy. Your paying for the experience just as much as for the food so the prices are up there.... More

Excellent food and service with great atmosphere. After several large meals on our trip, I opted for a salad and appetizer (lamb meatballs) and was not disappointed! Had some room to share a dessert. Wide range of choices and it was also fun trying to figure out the Greek words on the menu. Enjoyable evening. We could only get a... More

We have gone to Kokarri for special occasions since it opened in 1998. It is one of few places that serves Greek food is a great high end setting. The service is always good, food is wonderful, and it is great value.

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighborhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
