We visited this restaurant with my 9 year old daughter. Be prepared as this is an upmarket venue. Best to dress well and be prepared to splash out as it is generally worth it. We ordered the stuffed calamari which I think was Ok but...More

This was a really nice evening - the restaurant is very grand, terrific wine list, delicious Greek food, and outstanding service. The grilled octopus mezethe was fantastic - one could easily just have several mezethes but that would mean missing out on the equally delicious...More

The rambling dining rooms of Kokkari Estiatorio, a Greek institution in San Francisco’s Financial District, manage to make diners feel like they’re in an intimate taverna. The restaurant’s wood-beamed ceilings and comfy upholstered chairs create an atmosphere both elegant and homey, and the menu emphasizes...More

Great service. Our feta in tomato sauce was excellent. The chicken kabobs were moist and flavorful. Nice, rustic venue.

Outstanding, albeit pricey lunch. The crowd was a mix of tourists and power business lunch types. We particularly liked the Spanakopita (best I have ever had), Melitzanosalata, and the Meatball appetizers. The Chicken Souvlaki was also excellent, but the Ravioli were a bit heavy. If...More

Long anticipated visit to Kokkari Great looking restaurant. Much larger than expected. Seated at a table nearly in the lap of the party at the other table so not much space. Service good. I had lamb riblets and a fish course. Just not as tasty...More

Whether it's a special occasion like a birthday or a meal with a special client, Kokkari always delivers with the quality of its food and service. It's a busy spot for locals and out-of-towners so reservations are highly recommended. The bar is a great option...More

I must say that Kokkari is a very nice place where you are very comfortable and people are looking after you in a very special manner. The best way to eat at this place is by share dishes. Focus primary on starters - they are...More

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,
