The wonderful aroma of lamb sets the tone of your visit the second that you walk through the door. If you are a fish person, don't worry. They have lots of great fish and vegetarian options. Reservations are tough to get, so either plan ahead or get in before 5 for a spot at the bar.

I'm a foodie, I travel around a lot, and this is one of the best restaurantes I've ever had the pleasure to dine at. Amazing service, totally seamless, you never even have to call the waiter. They are always anticipating your needs. Food is absolutely impressive and wonderful. Each dish cooked to perfection, peculiar ingredients, you'll feel like you're in... More

We had an excellent meal and we're talking about it for weeks. We only had a one night layover and wanted to meet up with our friends who live in the city. I can't say enough about the execution of all the food. I do highly recommend reservations in advance.

I just admit I feel like this is destined to become the most redundant and unnecessary review given the obvious: Kokkari as a restaurant in one of the greatest restaurant cities in the world is simply "known" to be, on virtually every level, as good as it gets. Their signature dish is rack of lamb, and unless you are among... More

This family-owned, long-standing SF restaurant (and it's sister restaurant in Palo Alto, called Evvia) are the best Greek food you'll find in the area. Beautiful ambiance that feels very warm and welcoming (the real fire in the kitchen used to grill and roast is a big contributor), and food that is so tasty, you'll remember it for a long time...

Our group was of mixed ages with some more for the bar scene and others for the food. All were satisfied, however. The baked cheese, the grilled octopus and the marinated lamb were hits with everyone! After dinner, we went to the bar where both locals and tourists were mixing. Another round of dessert and drinks ended a perfect evening!

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.
