Love the space here. The food was really tasty too. I highly recommend the fried smelts, moussaka, and lamb. I tried the grilled fish too which I enjoyed, but found a little dry and pricey. Service was really nice and attentive without being annoying. Definitely make a reservation because this place gets booked fast!

In love with Kokkari! So happy there's an amazing & delicious Greek restaurant in the city. Best part was that I got to try a bunch of the food on company money! We booked their private dining Hania Room that you take an elevator to go down to. Apps -Octopus: Love this dish! Octopus is amazing and the sauce is wonderful to dip bread in. -Calamari: Some people liked this more than the octopus. It's grilled and stuffed with feta & oranges and gave the Octopus a run for its money -Artichoke: Grilled with a little cheese also. Very solid app. -Lamb Meatball: My least favorite of the apps but this was still pretty good. -Lamb Shank: Fell off the bone and super tender. Entrees -Lamb Chops: SUUUUUPER TENDER!! Can't even begin to describe how yummy this was -Goat Stew: BF ordered this since half the table ordered the lamb chops. Comes with orzo, artichokes, feta, and super easily shredded goat. Super happy he went with something different so I could try :) Dessert -Apple Cinnamon Dessert (daily special): I don't particularly like apples but for some reason, when the waiter was describing it, it piqued my interest. Tastes like an apple pie and served with a side of ice cream, loved this too. -Baklava: Love the ice cream that comes with it. Baklava was a huge hit amongst the group. Everything we had was way above average to amazing. I'm so happy we went to Kokkari for my company holiday dinner since there's no way I would've been able to try as much as I did. Excited to come back again.

I went out of my way to find this restaurant, seeing as it was the highest rated on TripAdvisor for San Francisco (in May 2013). For the most part, it didn't disappoint. Despite the somewhat formal appearance of the restaurant, the staff were relaxed and friendly. My waiter was attentive and conversational, and made some good recommendations for me. I went for red wine (they have a large selection of wines) and the grilled octopus for a starter, and both were superb. Now comes the only caveat - my mains, the aromatic braised lamb shank was very good but had a bit too much salt. A minor error that, had it been avoided, would have elevated the whole meal. The baklava dessert was also very good. I would definitely revisit Kokkari if I find myself in San Francisco again. It's not cheap but it is reasonable for what you get.

First off, reservations are a must. They have a cancellation wait list, but when I was there at around 545pm on Sunday, there was already a long list, and the bar area was full. Fortunately, my wife and I did have reservations. The food was quite good. I had a the rotisserie of the day, which was a pork dish (I <3 pork) with some potatoes. I would have preferred a more interesting side rather than simple potatoes. The pork was a boston butt that was delicious and a good portion size. The appetizers we tried were the lamb riblets and fried smelts. Both were very good, albeit small portions. Portions were fine for 2 people, but if you are in a larger party, expect to double up. We also had the dessert of the day, which was a dish of fried phyllo pieces with honey and creme fraiche. Both my wife and I enjoyed the dessert but both agreed that we would have like the phyllo pieces to have been crispier. The have what looks to be a wonderful selection of wines, but neither of us had any on this night. The staff was very friendly and even called us immediately when they had noticed that I had forgotten my credit card. That saved me a drive, since we live about an hour away :)

Kokkari is one of the top rated restaurants in San Francisco. We ordered the grilled octopus, which was very tasty, but portion-wise was fairly small. I personally prefer Kokkari's sister restaurant, Evvia in Palo Alto. The restaurant is surprisingly large -- overall it has a very warm atmosphere, good food, and good service. Definitely worth a visit.

Kokkari Estiatorio is fantastic. What an incredible space-- on first reaction, the restaurant seems cosy but as you're led to your table, you soon find this place is gigantic. The atmosphere is perfect for a business dinner smack dab in middle of the Financial District. Their portions are definitely generous. I got the lamb rack special that night and was amazed by its tender juiciness. We had a vegetarian at the table as well who was limited to the sides but also found the offerings superb. I've also had friends straight from Greece tell me Kokkari is the place to go-- that's when you know this foodie destination is a must-do.
