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.

    Waiter was a little “off” Took a long time to attend to us, wrong appetizers delivered to table. Came to table twice and repeated entree choices as tho he didn’t remember he had already told us. Entree portion small for price paid.

    We had the saganaki, domathes, lamb kabob and mousaka. The saganaki was flavorful but the brandy, flame and opa were missing. Was also hoping it woild be served with pita but received bread instead. Everything else was great. The lamb was very tender. Price were a little high for the size of the plate but it is San Francisco.

    Table was a little awkward, having arm chairs back to back is a little hard to manage. Appetizers were small but very good; I ordered the duck special and it was good but it was pieces of whole chopped up duck, bones and all, which made for a lot of work eating. Service was very good.

    I love this restaurant but last night was not a great dining experience Food excellent as always ! But our service was just underwhelming… I don’t need anyone hovering over me but at least be engaging. He just seemed that it was a bother to answer questions and just wanted to get our order and turn his table. Not the norm at Kokkari

    I recommend the front room seating for its larger tables and chairs. My wife and I loved our Brussels sprouts and lamb riblet appetizers, the grilled Mediterranean sea bass, and the Greek yogurt dessert with dates, walnuts, and honey. Service was impeccable. We have been coming here for the past 10 years.

    Easily the worst lamb and branzino I had in the entire Bay Area. Bronzino not marinated well. Lamb was overcooked first time. It was undercooked and not seasoned in the replacement "rush job". Service. Waiter was missing mostly. Brought in stuff at their pace. Rushed at some time. Long wait other times. Dessert menu took 10 minutes to arrive. By then we had given up. It is a massive place where the din of the crowd is deafening.

    Fifteen minutes elapsed from when we were seated to when our waitress finally attended to us. We chose the chicken, only to find it undercooked. The establishment's remedy was to simply reheat the same dish, a decision made apparent by the slice of chicken that had been previously cut into and was now submerged in olive oil. A disappointing outcome for a restaurant we once held in high regard.

    Great ambience. Warm and lively restaurant. The service was good. As vegetarians our choices were limited to the appetizers. Only one veg entree. I think we ordered most of the vegetarian appetizers. The dolmas and zucchini cakes were very good. Other dishes were so so. The flourless chocolate cake was excellent. The Greek doughnuts were too doughy and seemed a little undercooked.
