Classic fine dining ambience with rustic touches and very friendly staff. We arrived early and we're able to get 2 spots at the full bar before dinner. People were waiting for bar spots, however, shortly after us. Food was DELICIOUS. GooglePlace - December 2017

Probably the best Greek food I ever had... The lamb chops come highly recommend, but I also really liked the desserts! Trendy place with a good atmosphere en pleasant waiters. GooglePlace - December 2017

An absolutely fantastic Greek dining experience. A full bar to start, and wonderful bread. If you can, have the lamb that is roasting on the spit in the center of the front dining room. Delicious. Even better is to be seated at the table in front of the open fire. The fish is magnificent. Make sure to save room for the sundae - decadent. GooglePlace - November 2017

The staff was warm, friendly and informative. They were able to help us choose apps or salads that would feed just the right amount of people. The food was fabulous. The service was excellent and the ambiance in the room was just perfect. The lighting was not to bright, lots of candles to give it a warm, cozy feeling. Kokarri never lets us down, and is always more than a pleasure to go!! GooglePlace - November 2017

Everyone talks about the lamb here and I love lamb so I knew I had to try the lamb! I got that to share among 3 of us and they were nice enough to split it up into 3 plates since we said we were sharing (for an extra charge they didn’t tell us about, of course). I thought it was pretty good. It was cooked pretty well, and the lemon wedge was really good with it, but I thought it could have used more seasoning or sauce of some sort. My mom makes rosemary lamb chops at home and I thought they were better. Don’t get me wrong, it was still good, but I would have rather had my mom make them because my mom is that good 😊. The potatoes that came with it were delicious! We also go the pork belly app which was good. It had peaches on top which added a nice sweetness and I really enjoyed it. We also go the watermelon with feta on top. The watermelon was perfect in texture and in sweetness. The feta added a nice saltiness contrast to it. Since we had room for dessert, we got 2 of them to share. I loved the baklava. It had the perfect combination of flaky, sweet, nutty and sweet. We also got the birds nest dessert (not on menu) and it was pretty good except I wish it had been sweeter. Overall, it was a good meal with nice ambiance. The presentation of the dishes are beautifully plated as well. I personally wouldn’t come back for the lamb since I like my mom’s, but I would recommend it if you don’t have a mom who can cook really good lamb. GooglePlace - October 2017
