Went for drinks with friends after a conference. Had a wonderful time. Nice extensive wine selection. It was a Friday and people were coming for dinner reservations. It was packed by the time we left.

I've been here many times, mostly for lunch. Beautiful space and I've never had a meal I didn't love. I highly recommend the fried fish (sardine?) appetizer and the lambchops. I almost always order the lamb chops because they are so damn good, but even when I get something else, it's great.

We spent NYE at Kokkari. We had a great meal - excellent service and it was a lovely intimate setting for the family as we were from out of town. We shared a number of fabulous dishes including the lamb roasted on the spit. We attended the early session and the staff were attentive and the food delicious. Would highly... More

This is a restaurant for a special celebration or splurge. We went with friends and were impressed by the food and the very good service--food arrived in a timely manner, waiters didn't hover, but when you needed them, they were there. It is somewhat expensive, but for a special night, it's worth it.

Kokkari is one of if not the best restaurants in the entire Bay Area. We have eaten there many times for dinners, meetings, and just popping in for appetizers and drinks. The food is always wonderful, the taste is out of this world. At Kokkari I have favorites, but I force myself to try new dishes each time and I... More

The service is fantastic and very accommodating. The food is delicious, authentic and well presented. The interior decorating is rustic, elegant and warm. I highly recommend this venue for business or family/friend get togethers! I hear they book far out, but have not booked myself. They can accommodate large parties, we had 20-30 people in our business lunch with a... More

Went most recently with colleagues and friends. Solid food, my one friend always gets the lamb chops which are can't miss. I got the special which was a seafood stew which hit the spot on a drizzly November night. We had a little glitch in service. The last of our party arrived a bit late for our early reservation, and... More

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighbourhood home.
