The restaurant was packed even on a Monday night. There were so many tempting dishes on the menu it was very hard to decide. Appetizer was grape leaves. Mains were the fish of the day and moussaka. Both the appetizers and mains were excellent especially the grilled fish of the day.

We eat there as a group of old friends (and foodies) - the food and service were outstanding. We booked the Hania room; the service was attentive and food was creative and delicious.

Having grown up in Chicago, I can tell you that Kokkari is one of the best Greek restaurants anywhere (Melbourne, Toronto - Danforth, NYC - Astoria, Chicago - Halsted - all included). We spent a fantastic evening there for our anniversary, and Dimitri, Jeff and the whole team provided impeccable service. Amazing wine selections, innovative appetizers, freshest vegetables, and that barbecue spit! My fish was flown in from Greece, and the spitted pork loin was succulent. Desserts, Greek coffee, Private Reserve (aged 30 years) Metaxa - what a night.

Thanks again,

Peter and Linda Kounelis - San Diego

Finally got organized and booked a table in advance. Very good service, so many wait staff around. All the food was delicious, from the bread and oil, to the ouzo and pomegranate sorbet. Was hard to chose which lamb dish to have, but ended up with the lamb chops and lamb kebab - both we're yummy! Would definitely visit again.

Went their with 5 friends on a recommendation of a friend. We had no reservations and the place was totally booked. The hostess was able to fit us in. I was very excited right away when I saw 2 whole lambs cooking in an open fire in a fireplace. The restaurant is beautiful, and the food was great. Max was our server and he was excellent. His knowledge of the menu was very helpful. Would definitely go back.
