Very nice meal. Excellent service. My husband and I got a same day reservation thru Open Table (although it was late 10pm) and felt lucky to get it. Nice atmosphere. Tables are very close together but not intrusive. Lamb chops are a must!

Very big restaurant, but still manages to deliver great food and great service. Not sure if it was related to the magnum bottle of Duckhorn we had, but I had a great experience at this restaurant ;) safe to say they have a good wine list.

Good food, it was perfect for lunch. Really enjoyed the Octopus Salad. I can't quite give it 5 out of 5 there are some amazing restaurants in the area. I would however be very happy to go back.

Kokkari is the best Greek restaurant in San Francisco. Period. Here are some of my favorites--you should study the menu closely for your choices: Under the Mezethes I like Spanakotrripita, Octapodaki tuo Yiorgou (Octopus), Kalamari. Under Kirios Plato (Mains) I like Psari sto Fourno (fish), Moussaka, and Arnisia Paidoka (lamb). The atmosphere is great, full bar. Go enjoy.

We returned after a great meal a year ago and were pleased once again. While it doesn't measure up to Chicago great Greeks like PARTHENON, it is an excellent upscale Greek version in San Francisco. Very popular and packed on a Monday night. Service was excellent and we were seated right away with our 6 PM reservation. We dined on... More

We dine at Kokkari only once a year-- it's a four hour drive. Each visit is better than the last, if that's even possible. Our group of five enjoyed a pre-Thanksgiving dinner of Wednesday evening and every single element was top notch. Hostess greeted us warmly upon arrival and promptly showed us our table overlooking the open kitchen. Our waitress... More

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood 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 neighbourhoods 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 neighbourhood home.
