Recently had lunch there with my family and was very pleased with the food, service, and atmosphere. The restaurant has a warm and relaxed feel and the food was outstanding. We had grilled squid, octopus, lamb and other delectable dishes. Can't wait to go back to Kokkari!

Kokkari was recommended by the concierge at the Hyatt. Make a reservation as soon as you book your SF trip, it is very popular for all ages. Dress to the 9's and be prepared for the best roasted meals, wine and tastes in SF. If you can't get a reservation, squeeze into the bar and eat there. Wine and food... More

Had a group of 24 people all attending a meeting in San Francisco. I was able to arrange a dinner for all at Kokkari Estiatorio with the help of Danielle Biela, their events co-ordinator. We arranged a menu for the dinner--with this many people, they serve family style, with more than enough food for everyone--we left fully sated! Service was... More

This is our favorite date night restaurant. It's also great for families as it has an inviting environment with the fireplace as the focal point. The staff are just wonderful. They make you want to come back and we always do! At the end, you're surprised by the affordable price of eating her! We love ordering about 7 apps and... More

From the starter to entree, all are enticing and beckon us to return. Top quality, fresh, and optimum taste; NOT overly smudged with spices. Love the oven roasted Brussels sprouts and Spanokopita starters. The grilled Sea Bass (Choice: bone removed) is so naturally sweet and easy to handle. Lamb Moussaka is generous. Lamb Shish Kabob entree is very attractively served.... More

So we thought about mixing it up and planned a nice lunch for our company party in SF. We chose this restaurant after seeing the reviews on TA. The restaurant was easy to find in an out of the way street. We were greeted by a friendly staff who sat us in what I would call the corridor that connected... More

Went to Kokkari on Tuesday nite. We arrived right on time for our booked slot. We were ushered in quickly into a nice corner. The service was very good. We had five nice starters and the best experience is the zucchini cake and the panfried cheese. We shared two portions of main dish-the lamb and the branzino fish and they... More

The two dishes I had were excellent. The grilled octopus and grilled sweetbreads were melt in the mouth and very tasty . Some of the portions were too small, and the Greek salad was not crisp and fresh, probably prepared way too early. We really enjoyed the wines on offer. The place is very busy, booking are a necessity.

Going to a restaurant is about food and service. Together, they make the experience. In my 1500 restaurant experiences, Abel is one of the best servers ever. Service isn't just fast and efficient. He reads minds and brings you things you were thinking of asking for. I have never seen anyone like him. He is somewhere between awesome and scary... 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.
