Kokkari is A Striking Restaurant Where Delicious Food Are Perfectly Served! For Appetizer go for the "Peinirli", a wood-oven baked pita stuffed with ricotta and feta cheese or for the delicious "Octapodaki tou Yiorgou", a perfect seasoned and grilled octopus! For Main Course Choose The Outstanding Moussaka, a traditional baked casserole of spiced lamb, eggplant, potato and yogurt béchamel!

This is a beautiful restaurant which specializes in an upscale Greek and Mediterranean food. Try to go with a group so you can try multiple items. For appetizers, I'd suggest the filo pies, zucchini cakes or calamari. If you like lamb, they roast whole, locally sourced lambs so anything with lamb is generally excellent. I tend to get the grilled... More

Atmosphere is a relaxed lively. Food is always excellent. Service is calm, professional and welcoming. Book in advance especially for dinner. Lunch reservations are not much easier, but it is worthwhile. You may be able to slide in at the bar but by no means guaranteed.

From the warmly inlaid wooden interior to the heath and special coffee sand warming out, you cannot miss on any of the authentic styled Greek dishes. Most praise the succulent lamb and others delight in the chicken roasted to perfection. The many exotic side accompaniments place you on the Greek Islands with all of the senses delighted. Choose your baklava... More

Lovely setting. Excellent food and service, but very expensive. We were five and with wine, a drink, incl. tip, it was approx. $70 per person for lunch. Recommend for a special occasion.

Kokkari has much to offer-- tasty traditional Greek food, an impressive wine list with Greek wines, and for once a non-devastating loud environment. But it all comes with a hefty price tag. Good Greek food can also be found elsewhere, but for relaxing with your friends "of a certain age," this may be the place.

A fantastic restuarant! Don't miss the lamb on the spit. Very difficult reservation to get however, but well worth it.

The dining experience at Kokkari is always special. It's a combination of the buzzing crowd, restaurant décor, great lighting, crackling fireplace, and mouth-watering Med inspired, healthy food.

This is my favorite restaurant in SF - formal, but not stuffy. A buzz in the air, yet you can hear your table-mates talk. We like it for both business and after-hours. Staff is always knowledgable, often recommending lower cost wines and specials. the problem is that it is so hard to get a reservation that i never think of... More

Even despite being used to great Greek food in Australia, this place is a knock-out. The setting is elegant without being pretentious and too 'fine'. Our waitress was very knowledgeable, and helped us pick a great Napa Valley red wine bottle. We ordered the saganaki and calamari mezze with a special Italian sausage starter. We then had the lamb shanks... More

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s version of Wall Street. The rush of business people make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of historic and contemporary architecture, including the iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours, bars and restaurants quickly fill up with happy hour revelers. Stocks aren’t the only kind of market being followed, the Ferry Building Marketplace on the Embarcadero is a gourmet food emporium and farmers market that will satisfy anyone working up an appetite.
