The atmosphere in the restaurant, the fire crackling. The food, everything fell into place after a wet and rainy day outside!
Service however is slow.

Well worth a trip and it lives up to the hype and TripAdvisor ratings. Great Greek food at reasonable prices. Although I went full traditional (feta cheese dip, moussaka and baklava) the menu has plenty of modern and special dishes to satisfy any hearty appetite. Reservations are a must. If you like good Greek food and spices, this restaurant is a must when in San Francisco.

My husband and I found this amazing and beautiful restaurant and after 3 tries, managed to snag a reservation, for lunch. (It's very popular!) Soaring rooms, impeccable service, a noise level "for grownups" with no music to talk over, and food so fresh and good we can't stop recommending it. This is a "tablecloth" restaurant, a place for a civilized meal where you feel pampered. You know right away that they care when the bread and olive oil brought to the table are so good. We shared a razor clam special appetizer and a fresh chunky Greek salad, followed by lamp chops for my husband and a lamb burger served on pita for me. The lamb was first-rate. My burger was juicy and tasty, and huge! The fries that came with were perfectly crisp. Our waiter brought me two tastes of red wine to try before making up my mind. He was very helpful, professional and pleasant without being overly friendly--the way a good waiter should be. In a time of bare-topped tables, loud music and fussy food, Kokkari stands out. Note: If you can't get a reservation online, try calling. The woman who answers is gracious and helpful.

We wanted to experience good Greek food in a well run restaurant where we could converse. Kokkari delivered. I phoned from New Zealand to book. The banquet table in the corner was perfect. This is a big restaurant with lots of diners but the layout makes for a number of spaces so there is a degree of intimacy. Lots of people having a good time. The service was attentive. Grilled cheese,rabbit casserole and the dessert were highlights.

ask for a table in the room with the fireplace and order whatever meat they are cooking in over the fire that evening. you can't go wrong. Also, sea bream with lemon. A great place to go for a special occasion or just because you want to treat yourself well!
