Fun and comfortable atmosphere, great service, and delicious food. Would definitely come back again!
Service was great and they had a special table waiting for us when we got there! Food was delicious and company was amazing too!
We arrived a bit early expecting to wait. Was pleasantly surprised we were seated sooner them expected. The food was great portions just right. Price was as expected at a nice restaurant. Waiter was extremely friendly. All and all I expect to come here at least once a month. Oh yeah didn't receive drink menu till end apparently they are the only place that sells Kumquat wine... I must try it next time I'm there.
This was our second Valentines Day at Kokopelli’s. We also have been there several times before. We have never had a bad meal! Everything is always cooked to our liking.
Our waiter was great. He was so energetic and knowledgeable about the menu and specials and had a fun personality.
All in all a lovely Valentines Day!
A great glass of wine, a great steak and a wonderful dessert. What more could you ask. A wonderful evening!
An enjoyable restaurant with delicious food and great service ....
Good food and service in an eclectic environment. The place to go if you like antique stores.
Food not bad but not above average for sure. She crab soup I couldn’t wait for & it was such a terrible thick consistency 3 of us couldn’t eat it. It did contain decent amount of crab so such a waste! Service was great & food was hot having been cooked right then for our order. I will possibly go back sometime but not go out of my way!
Kafe Kokopelli has a unique ambiance, friendly and competent wait staff, and consistently good food! We feel fortunate to have this non chain restaurant in our Dade City community!
We have been going there for almost 20 years. This is the first time we made a reservation online. We were seated in the bar and waited on by the bartender. She was very flustered as she asked 3 times within a 30 second period to repeat my drink order, even repeating it back to me every time.
After waiting 50 minutes for our food we asked the bartender to check on our order and she asked us what we had ordered giving the impression that she had not submitted our order . We left before we could be served and as we were leaving people that came in behind us were leaving as well but with their leftovers from their meal...
I put all the blame of this experience on the bartender.
We went to Kokopelli on the advice of a local from the town the restaurant is in. I had the fried calamari and my wife had the grouper and veggie dish. The service was good, and the food was good as well. The decor of the place is a bit busy but we didn't go there for the decorating.
The host was quite unfriendly when we asked to be seated in the main part of the restaurant, and not the very noisy bar. He acted put out that we wanted to be seated in the main dining room because of his upcoming reservations, even though there were numerous empty tables and we were there very early for dinner. It was about 5 PM. He finally put us in the dining room but even then he was anything but gracious or friendly.
great food and atmosphere. Table was set for us when we arrived. had a great meal.
Meatloaf was terrible. Chicken parmesan was cold.
Our server was awesome! The food was super fast and fresh. I had the beef n blue salad and the meat was in the tough side but the onions were fantastic. My son had the meatloaf which he liked. The parents had the chicken Marsala and the eggplant Parmesan. The chicken Marsala was definitely the winner as well as the calamari! We loved the ambiance and had an overall very nice meal.
The food was put on the plate very elegant. But the prime rib was salty and so was homemade chips. But she crab soup was delicious as always. I would just go there for the she crab soup since it’s so good. The fried green tomatoes were the best I’ve eaten in a long time.
Always an awesome meal at Kafe Kokopelli! We’re going back for Valentines Day.
Fantastic ambiance great food and exceptional service. Highly recommend Kafe Kokopelli
Had reservation for two they sat us at a table for six because we were 10 minutes early even though there was a table for two across from us. The table across from us was still available when we left one hour later. The food was mediocre at best. We had been there for lunch and dinner in the past. Will probably not return.
Great experience, food was delicious
The entrees were good however when we asked for the waffle covered with chocolate and ice cream the waffle was so hard if you hit it with a spoon it would not break it open. I've eaten many waffles a cafe k and they're usually very good this one was just overlooked for quality control
This is a very cool place with a home town family vibe. It would also be a nice destination ride on the bikes.
Fantastic brunch !!! We love this place !!! So glad we found it !!
Great food, atmosphere and service. To Die for Goat Cheesecake w/fruit compote. Rib eye seasoned and cooked perfectly. Will definitely return.
Awesome barmaid / waitress!
Our new favorite spot! Loved the food and ambience. We’ll be back soon.
Kokopelli is one of those wonderful enduring restaurants you can go back to time and again. We visit everytime we're in Dade City and are always delighted by the real down to earth ambiance, great food and excellent service. You will be amazed and delighted by the overall warmth and down-home feeling of the restaurant's space in an old auto mechanics garage. On weekends, go for the prime rib, but go early before they run out. The seafood, steads and appetizers are also very good.
There are dozens of restaurants that try to fake authenticity. Kokopelli doesn't have to.
Excellent and consistent. New to Dade City and this I a weekly go to for my wife and I.
Great Food, good prices and unique atmosphere! Staff was friendly and accommodating! Bar area is also cool!
Another evening of great dining at Kafe Kokopelli. Grouper was excellent. The staff attentive and the ambiance relaxing. Thanks .
Don't go during live music nights. Your ears will thank me.
My wife and I dined at Kafe Kokopelli on October 1, 2019, for our anniversary. Our appetizer was Fried Calamari and it was simply excellent. My wife ordered Caesar Salad with Chicken and she said that this salad was delicious. I had the Prime Rib 16 ounce version and this was the best prime rib that I have ever had. Both of our desserts were also of the highest quality. I consider this restaurant outstanding in all of its offers and is now my favorite place to go for a fine meal.
An absolute gem up in Dade City. The food was outstanding, and the service was even better. Kurt did a great job giving us recommendations as well servicing the table. Words cannot describe the Goat Cheese Cheesecake, however. Don't leave the restaurant without trying a slice. Well worth the drive up from Wesley Chapel!
Excellent NY Strip. Service, friendliness and Martini all top shelf.
Excellent Food a vast variety of appetizers along with an outstanding atmosphere.
This was the first time we had been to Kafe Kokopelli. We live in Citrus Hills which was about an hour drive . It was definitely worth the drive . Cute restaurant with great food and service . Our server Kurt K was a wonderful server, very attentive. Would definitely ask for him again . I had the Chicken Marsala /mashed potatoes which was a good portion. My husband had the beer cheese soup which was so good and the Cuban sandwich. They have a good selection of desserts , but at that point we were really full.
Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Incredible atmosphere and wonderful food. The weekend entertainment at the bar just adds to the ambiance and makes this a special place and very inviting.
Awesome as always , grouper and black rice was top notch
We took a road trip 40 minutes to Dade City to visit the restaurant on the recommendation of a friend. It was eclectic and busy, nice lively atmosphere. The service was pleasant and we were seated quickly on a Friday night because we made a reservation on Open Table. Had the eggplant parmigiana and the cajun pasta. Both were pretty good serving sizes, although they both were surprisingly somewhat bland, not particularly strongly flavoured/seasoned as expected, particularly for the cajun pasta. Had to add salt and pepper and cheese. If I were local I would try them again, and I would recommend online, but don't think I would make another special trip there.
Love the ambiance...like a good NY restaurant.....chicken tough...not impressed with the eggplant parmesan....the blue Bibb salad terrific!...had lamb chops the last time...superb......a great place to have a group function...or date
We had a amazing date night at Kokopelli. The service was paced perfectly and our waiter was knowledgeable. The value for meal was good and the taste was great.
We started with drinks and the shrimp appetizer, having the sauces on the side. I ordered the meatloaf which is the most popular dish and indescribable how good it is. You can't beat the meatloaf. My girlfriend ordered the black grouper and loved it. It was a great night.
