Mediterranean
Kokkari (pronounced “Ko-Kar-ee”) is a small fishing village located on the islands of Samos in the Aegean Sea, whose name is derived from the small onions that were once produced in the nearby fields. Its fertile soil and Mediterranean climate translated into an abundance of fresh produce as well as treasured seafood and game. Legend tells that Kokkari is the site where Orion, a mighty hunter and a young man of gigantic stature and great beauty, fell in love with the daughter of the king of Chios. For the love of her, Orion forged the island for wild game and seafood to prepare elaborate banquets in celebration of their love. Today, we hope you will enjoy your own celebration as you dine at Kokkari Estiatorio on food “fit for the Gods” prepared with an Aegean palate and the style of innovative California fare.

    This is our favorite restaurant in San Francisco. The food is outstanding. Try the lamb riblets! Despite being large, the experience is warm and cozy.

    Delicious hearty food, beautiful interior, wonderful service. Our server Gilberto made our experience especially wonderful by giving great recommendations and helpful, animated descriptions of each dish, as well as helping me navigate the menu with my dairy allergy and offering special substitutes. We felt extremely well cared for!

    The portion sizes are an absolute joke. SHRINKFLATION is real at this place. The octopus has decreased in size by about 70% from what I remember

    Food is great like usual. The service, while good, doesn’t match higher-end restaurants any longer.

    In my estimation, this is not only my favorite restaurant in Northern California, but also the best.

    While it’s always disappointing to be seated in the back of the restaurant I was even more disappointed in how the dining experience at Kohkari has diminished. The food was mediocre and certainly not the the spectacular grilled meats and fish I remember. But there’s still a crowd so maybe I missed something. The pita was the highlight.

    Sat at the bar and instantly felt as if we knew the bartenders for ages! Great personality and amazing service! As we walked in, being 5 pm, there were many greeters at the door. Well dressed and ready to serve. This is what hospitality was like ages ago in SF but so many restaurants miss the mark by far these days. The attention to something as simple as the greetings we received from the start , fast service, while not feeling pushed, and care in presentation and quality ingredients makes the desire to return again and again prevalent! Thank you! We look forward to our return to San Francisco and another delicious dinner!

    Phenomenal service. We tried many small plates, including two specials not on the menu, followed a special dessert also not on the menu. Everything was delicious. We’ll definitely go back.
