Make sure you make reservations before attempting to eat here but it is worth the wait. The vegetable skewers appetizer with a side of homemade yogurt is to die for. The homemade pita is killer and the moussaka is absolutely fabulous. The service is impeccable. It is a real treat to eat here!

The calamari, and mezze platter withe fresh warm bread was delicious. The calamari was filled with olives, feta and orange. One of the mezze dips was delicious, jalapeno's and feta....divine. The lamp chops were a little not to our liking. The wine from Napa valley was well recommended by the waiter.

We started with the gigantes beans in tomato and dill sauce, a must.
Grilled octopus exceptionally tender and well seasoned
beets rolled in Greek yogurt and sprinkled with chopped pistachios and mint
Avgolemono soup
Pork sliced off of the pig roasting in the huge fireplace and placed in a home made pita.
There is a huge open fireplace with spits in the first room. They grill lamb, chickens, pork, etc and then slice and serve.
One of the best meals that I have had in recent months. The pita is home made and the veggies that are served with it are all from the grill.
The restaurant is deceptively small, then you go into two huge rooms toward the rear.
Reservations are a must. We sat at the bar and were very comfortable but I would love to try the table service next time we are there.

Here's a big secret. Come visit SF on Labor Day weekend and you won't have a problem getting a 8pm reservation at Kokkari on a Saturday night! Wow. I've been here once before for a private party so I've never had a real dinner here. If you visit SF, try to dine here once just to say you did. The food is beyond perfect. We had the octopus (impossibly tender and flavorful), meatballs, greek salad, lamb shank and whole grilled branzino and the wonderful house Cab. Tobias our waiter was awesome and guided us through the great dinner. Will definitely be back soon (if we can get a reservation lol).
