Usually when we go to Greektown
Usually when we go to Greektown we have our go to favorite. Because of Restaurant week we expanded our horizons. Santorini Estoria provided a great atmosphere and night out! It was nice to see the manager out and about so much.

First time using Open Table
First time using Open Table as well as doing the Detroit Restaurant Week. I am very familiar with Greektown as I have been going there for over 40 years.
The entire experience was very good and I would not hesitate to use Open Table or go to Santorini. I highly recomend this approach, and the restaurant.

Beautiful Atmosphere, Delicious
We had a wonderful experience at Santorini. The decor is stunning and it seemed very clean. The service was good; I didn't give them a "5" because we waited a long time to pay for our dinner. But, our waiter was an attentive, handsome Greek so we didn't mind much. The spinach salad and lemon rice soup were both really, really divine. The side salads were generously portioned and all the food I sampled was really tasty and didn't seem like typical chain restaurant meals at all. I will go back.

We were a little disapointed, we had made a reservation and did not expect to be seated in the overflow room, it is not part of the main dining room and lacks the atmosphere of being in fine dining restaurant feels more like a family restaurant.
Waiter was OK, I beleive he had to shuffle back and forth from the main room to our back room and he was never in view so if you wanted something you had to get up and head into the main room.
The person who brought the food to the back room had no clue where anything went my food ended up on the table next to us for 2 or 3 minutes before they figured it out. Did not take the food back but gave me the plate that the person at the other table had poked at before realizing it wasn't his.

The restaurant is located in a street full of many other greek restaurants. However, of all restaurants, Santorini is the one that stands out. The interior of the restaurant is clearly visible to all that walk by. THe decoration and colors are very appealing and that was one of the reasons that my friend and I thought of trying eating there. The menu is perfect for anyone wanting to try this type of food. The experience was so pleasant, we did not want to leave.

loved this place!
We went for Mother's Day Brunch. The food was fabulous! Especially loved the spinach pie, it was the best I have ever had. Really enjoyed everything.

Great night with friends
I picked this restaurant from a review website for a group of friends to have dinner at. Everyone loved the food and the atmosphere. I even had to change our reservation to add a couple and it was not a problem. I will go back here next time I am in Downtown Detroit.
5/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service was great and the server was very genuine and thoughtful. The food was also fantastic. There were dishes we saw that we wished we could get in addition to what we ordered. So many good choices!

Good Greek food in Greektown!
By far the best Greek food in Greektown. Lovely decor, great service and delicious Greek specialties. Definitely recommend it!
5/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Greek food splendor.
Best lamb chops of any place. Very good Greek waiter. Best restaurant around Detroit. Nice ambiance.
5/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dined here twice now, while traveling on business. Both times the food was amazing. The service was excellent. Really enjoyed the authentic Greek dishes. The decor is very inviting and relaxing. Dining near the open window was an added plus.
5/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
A beautiful, Greek experience
Santorini has a beautiful ambiance, and the open door walls are a perfect touch in the spring/summer! Very breezy and beautiful, and the food is great. The wind makes your "OPA" last a little longer too :) It offers a different kind of feel than the other Greek restaurants in Greektown, with the modern look & outside-feel.

Service here from our waitress
Service here from our waitress was excellent. She was attentive and very knowledgable about the food. The food was good, but not as good as I had expected. Drinks came out a little slowly. The atmosphere is great and the open walls give you a feeling of eating outside with the comfort of being inside. The menu is extensive and has many options. I will absolutely be back!

Best Restaurant in Greektown
We first tried this place during Restaurant Week a couple months ago and I had one of the best meals I have ever had (Stuffed Lamb medallions, portabella infused mashed potatoes and asparagus). During our latest visit I tried the lamb chops and they were simply terrific. I found myself trying to pry every little piece of meat from the bone. Moreover, I find the prices to be reasonable, not a thrifty joint by any stretch, but not eye-popping pricey. They also have an excellent cocktail and wine selection. Do yourself a favor and try them out. We cannot wait to go back.

Fresh,fine Greek food
In the old mosaic spot, this very pretty place opens up to the street. Food was very fresh- not heavy or full of vinegar. Great drinks as well
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Growing up in a Greek family, I know good Greek food when I taste it. Santorini satisfies my longing for the tastes of home. The generous portion of roast leg of lamb was so tender, I could cut it with a fork. The roasted potatoes and tomato sauce smothered green beans were amazing. Our delectable dessert was loukoumades(fried round Greek donuts smothered in honey, cinnamon and walnuts). The manager circulates the room to make sure his patrons are completely satisfied. The decor takes the patrons to the island of Santorini. The only thing missing is the Aegean sea. The floor to ceiling windows open to the outdoors on warm days which gives the restaurant an airy feel. I would definitely come back with friends and family.

Best in greektown
Had a wonderful dinner at santorini. Very nice atmosphere.. A bit more upscale the the other greek eateries nearby. The food was served beautifully. Traditional greek dishes, lamb, beef, chicken and seafood, as well as some vegitarian entrees. Very very nice. Will definitely be back

Greektown meets the 21st century
A contemporary look and very professional level of service gives this place a very different feel from older establishments in the neighborhood. Lamb chops and Greek vegetarian sampler were both excellent. Waiter was able to suggest a tasty Greek wine.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Place in Greektown
We had a group of 10 which can be tricky. The servers were very attentive and food was great. I'd definitely visit Santorini again.

Great Experience in Greektown
Service was terrific. Food even better. Santorini far exceeded our expectations.

Took out of town guests that
Took out of town guests that love Greektown from years past. Santorini is a big step up from the other choices in Greektown, and only moderately more expensive. Our guest ordered lambchops and felt they were the best he'd ever had.

Lamb chops to die for!
The lamb chops are to die for and the service is outstanding!
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We'll go again
We were looking for a new place dowwntown and heard about Santorini and happy that we decided to try it. Everything we had was good - especially the lamb chops (cooked perfectly) and the octopus. Make sure you order the roasted potatoes with dinner. They were really good! We were deep in conversation so we really appreciated that our waiter never hurried us, but was attentive at the same time. We'll definitely go back.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Decor was very Aegean -- left
Decor was very Aegean -- left very relaxed - loved the "open window/door European concept. If you are looking for a more upscale restaurant in the Greek-town area - this is it. Food was fantastic and our waiter was just what you want in a good restaurant- knowledgeable friendly and fun. Set the mood for our evening at the DSO outdoor concert. Can't wait to come back.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Excellent Excellent!
This was a beautiful experience for my husband and I. We truly enjoyed ourselves. The atmosphere was vibrant and the food was on point!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food and drinks were delicious. The doors/windows were open wide to the street making it a very enjoyable summer evening dinner.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I went for our anniversary and were not dissappointed. Food was very good. Service was excellent. Very friendly. I have recommended this restaurant to friends nd am looking forward to going back.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went out for 40th birthday celebration. Everything was wonderful. Food was great. Service was fun and attentive. Perfect Night.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was OUTSTANDING, and the service was typically great Greek. While we were there, the owner stopped by at every table to ask how our evening was going and if everything was to our satisfaction. This is impressive and speaks volumes for the kind of restaurant I would recommend and return to.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Hi, I had the minestrone soup which was wonderful. My husband had the lemon rice soup which he said he would not get again. Not much rice and it was bland.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is the second time I have dined at Santorini. The food is amazing and hands down the best Greek food in Detroit. Service is excellent and they were very attentive to our needs. I highly recommend dining there.
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Saganaki opa and hot octopus were favorites of the night. Very attentive service, manager stopped by a couple times to check in with us and they were very patient with the kids at the table (although I don't know if I recommend kids to attend a dinner like this) but they were very accommodating. Food was great. A little dead at 8pm, but Detroit still has the best Greek food in the US
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
A taste of Greece
Nice atmosphere, nice menu and they make it all work very well.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding customer service
This restaurant has great customer service. They leave a bottle of water at the table for refills, and the staff refills your glass routinely. We had dietary restrictions and the hostess knew the ingredients of the menu items to give suggestions. Professional staff. It was loud in the restaurant due to a couple of parties with large groups. No fault of the restaurant, but it did make it hard to talk at our table. We would have been better placed in another section of the restaurant. Everything else was excellent.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
New fun, fresh and amazing
My husband abd I went during Detroit Restaurant Week and the food was wonderful - the lamb with rice and he had the the tuna steak dinner - service at the table was amazing. However, the service at the bar seemed a bit surly - I get they were busy because of Restaurant week. However, overall great experience and would/ have recommended it to friends and family. Thank you
9/27/2013 5:00:00 PM
The lamb chops and steak bits were out of this world!!!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Plain Old Great Greek
Having Greek heritage, we seek out Greek restaurants as we travel and Santorini came highly recommended. The menu was pleasantly simple without being too basic and the food was prepared and served in a way that reminded of of our times in Greece. The freshness was apparent, the seasoning perfect, and the service was great. While we've enjoyed some more gourmet type Greek restaurants, we found Santorini to be a great representation of traditional Greek cuisine without being run of the mill.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice ambiance--not overdone, but modern feel. Portions were huge--even the lamb dishes--and done extremely well. We had a large party and were seated well, the food came out on time and together, and the waitstaff handled the extra traffic amicably. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great greek cuisine
This restaurant has great recipes of the greek cuisine and the service was remarkable. We ordered the famous saganaki opa, and it is really a great experience. For the main course, we ordered kebob beef and it was also tasty.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great choice for late night
We had a late night appetizer meal. The mixed drinks were incredible. The three hot appetizers we had was more than enough food.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic in every way!
My wife and I ate at Santorini last Saturday night. The entire experience was wonderful. We had made reservations ahead of time and that worked out great. I had mentioned that it was an anniversary dinner and they wished us a happy anniversary upon our arrival. We were seated immediately and were well taken care of all night. Our waiter was prompt, friendly and helpful. The food was magnificent. Cooked perfectly & each bite tasted wonderful. The wine was delicious and fairly priced. The location of the restaurant is great too. It's right in Detroit's Greektown and there is a lot of street activity. This place has everything we were looking for.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a grand venue!!! The Restaurant is only a year old, but serves Greek classics with attentive wait staff!
You will love it!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Will go any time
The place is the best in Greek Town Detroit. I am foody and I like the place very much. I love lamb and the lamb shank is the best. This is the way my family make it. The "Trio Traditional" was very good. The atmosphere remind you of Greece. The chef knows his material. It is not a fake Greek Food if you order the real ones.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Went for thanksgiving meal here. The food was okay, not sure if they prepared the meal. We also had a couple of items off the menu which were very good. Good service. Nice decor. Will rerurn for authentic Greek cuisine in future
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
On a day when not many restaurants
On a day when not many restaurants are open (Thanksgiving), we had a very enjoyable experience. The staff was very pleasant and super accommodating. We ate from the special menu and had a very tasty meal. Looking forward to returning to sample the regular menu, soon.

Real Greek Food in Greektown.
After Cyprus Taverna closed several years ago, I've been searching for a new spot in Greektown. While this is a much more elegant atmosphere, they get the food right. Don't believe the Hype of the huge Pegasus down the street. Santorini will satisfy.
11/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
LOVE this restaurant. Being Greek, we are always searching for the real deal and definitely found it here! The true test is avogolemeno soup which most restaurants serve as a gelatinous bowl of goo. Santorini executes perfectly on this delicate soup. We asked our waiter (Greek) for an off menu combination of food, plated for the three of us. He was happy to oblige and everything was absolutely outstanding! Pastichio and Moussaka were both heavenly as was lamb shank and dolmathes. FIVE STARS! Oh, on ambiance - toooo bright in there. Could be much cozier with proper lighting.
4/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Santorini was thumbs up
My husband and I are real foody. We try all kind of food from all over the world. I had stopped going to Detroit Greek Town because the restaurants were losing losing their authenticity
We decided to go to this new restaurant Detroit Restaurant Week. I ordered a lamb shank dish. It was extremely good. The lamb had the flavor of American Farm raised lamb (The lamb from New Zealand or Australia is too strong for my taste). The portion size was very good. The sides with main entree was also very true to real Greek Food.
We tried the Shrimp appetizer, it was as good as the main entree. The Greek Salad also had its own house made sauce. I like the flavor of Greek olive oil.
I would like to try the restaurant again with my family.
