What the Food Critics are Saying

"With meat roasting in an open fireplace, a beautiful open-beam ceiling, and hardwood floors accented with Oriental rugs, this Greek-inspired restaurant feels rustic and elegant." – San Francisco Chronicle

"Legend tells us that Kokkari is the site where Orion, son of the Greek god Poseidon, fell in love with the daughter of the King of Chios. For the love of her, Orion foraged the island for wild game and seafood to prepare elaborate banquets. On entering Kokkari, guests experience the old-world charm of a rustic Mediterranean country inn on the shores of the Aegean. An inviting fireplace, extensive woodwork, hand-made pottery and freshly picked flowers all reflect the warmth and tradition of ages-old." – Kokkari Estiatorio


Delicious Greek food served with verve and style, featuring excellent spit-roasted meats.


The warm, upscale dining room in Downtown San Francisco is popular with the business crowd, visitors and locals.
