Kokkari Estiatorio came in 10th place on the annual ranking in the “Fine Dining” category.

“Always the best,” reads one of the reviews on its TripAdvisor page.

More than two decades old, Kokkari is known for its wood-fired rotisserie meats and rustic Mediterranean inspired cuisine.

TripAdvisor’s restaurant awards are calculated based on the “quality and quantity of traveler reviews and ratings” from Jan. 1, 2020, to April 30, 2021.

Restaurants were awarded in eight categories: fine dining, everyday eats, quick bites, picture-perfect restaurants, date night, best brunch spots, hottest new restaurants and best vegan spots.

Although the only San Francisco restaurant chosen, Kokkari wasn’t the only Bay Area establishment to make the cut in the fine dining category.

Three North Bay restaurants made the list, including Valette in Healdsburg at number 17, The French Laundry in Yountville at number 21, and Bistro Jeanty at number 22, also in Yountville.

Gott’s Roadside in St. Helena also made the list for best quick bites at number 15.
