I remember there was one Hadith about prophet Muhammad ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) diet, they said he ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) was semi vegetarian. If someone can confirm pls share the source.

You don't need to go vegetarian - for protein eat seafood. Avoid haram foods at all cost.  First of all you are disobeying Allah Almighty and haram foods have harmful effects on spirituality. 

There are some kosher restaurants in my area. Can I eat there?

This article addresses this, and in fact our more reliable narrations say the opposite:

You can eat seafood that is halal, such as fish with scales and shrimps, even if that food is from the hand of the non-Muslim.

Most scholars do not allow the eating of meat that is slaughtered by a non-Muslim. 

At the end of the day, eating meat isn't wajib although it is a very beautiful thing, so if the choice is between vegetarian food and non-halal meat, you have to choose vegetarian food. But once again, I do recommend you look into seafood, as the rulings regarding it are more laxed than land animals which require slaughter by the hand of a Muslim.

*NOTE - this advice only applies if you are Shi'i Twelver.

Kosher meat is halal [in Sunni Fiqh] - But be careful about Jewish dishes as there may wine used in preparing these. Be strong and avoid haram food at all costs.

Is this according to shia fiqh?

It is only makrooh, not haram, to keep a vegetarian diet.  It is recommended that you eat meat at least once every 40 days, but this meat might be fish. As far as I know, only some kinds of Christians do not consider fish to be meat. According to Shia fiqh, any fish with scales is halal, including tuna, salmon, and trout, which are all the best kinds of fish anyway.
