A word from Santorini
Santorini Estiatorio is founded on the celebration of the Greek experience, through Greek culinary tradition and culture. In Greece, a meal is an opportunity to celebrate life with those around us. Together our commitment to service, dedication to value, and exceptional quality will create an atmosphere that will give guests that same opportunity. We will serve with the same passion for life that is embodied in the Greek Culinary history and culture.

Santorini's menu boasts a wide variety of traditional Greek dishes, wines and cocktails. The goal is to reintroduce customers to Greek food with a mix of well-known facorites and specialty dishes that many people can only find in Greece.

The entire look and feel of the restaurant has been designed to make customers feel like they have been transplanted to an island in Greece.

Diner Reviews
  • "There are plenty of places to eat in Greek town. Hella's was always our favorite. After it closed we tried several different places. All serve basically the same food. Santorini's is now our new favorite. This was our third visit. It is upscale, neat and clean. The wait staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Someone is always checking with you to see if you need anything. Service is at a more relaxed pace. Nice wine list. Excellent, very fresh salad. Food served hot. My stuffed grape leaves were tender and flavorful. May be the best baklava I have ever tasted."

  • "Owner came several times to check on things. The owner obviously cares about his food and service. it was all good. I had requested a quiet table for our group and it was honored by putting us in a private room. Great service and friendly people. When in Detroit , I will go back!"

  • "This our third time frequenting Santorini. We (my wife and I) became fans after our first visit during Detroit's Restaurant week a couple years ago, as we had an outstanding meal. Each time we visit, we are reminded of why we choose to come back. The décor is very charming and reminiscent of Greek style and culture. The service is always excellent as the staff are courteous and attentive. Each time we have visited Santorini we have had the manager stop at our table 1-2x to ensure that we were having an enjoyable experience. The cocktails are tasty (they have a full bar and a number of signature cocktails) and the wine list is comprehensive. The food is simply wonderful. This is my favorite restaurant in Greek Town."

  • "Was very disappointed they were out of the lamb shank. The waiter also left the wine bottle by on of the peoples elbow which could have been bad. Portion size was huge. The Greek individual said the flavored were very close to what his Mom makes "

  • "Very good Greek food, in an exceptional downtown environment. Definitely worth making a reservation and enjoying the ambiance of Greek town. Got great service, and the staff was well orchestrated to ensure the place was synchronized. Clearly under exceptional management."

  • "We had a group of 10 from varying places outside of Detroit/Michigan. The service was great. The food was wonderful. Many of the diners were unfamiliar with Greek food, but the plates were "cleaned up." Yum!"

  • "We went for our honeymoon to Santorini and this restaurant brought us back very good memories. Food, especially the Grilled Lamb Chops, was delicious. Not the best place for a romantic dinner because of the noise level. But we would definitely come back."

  • "Nothing that me our my date ordered was available. This was during the Detroit Restaurant Week & I would think the menu for that week would be readily available. I ordered 3 different things & my date 2 & nothing. We eventually left without dining & went to a different restaurant."

  • "The food was mediocre, the waiter was careless, food timing was the only thing that was not bad. I've been to this restaurant a year ago when prices were a little higher, there was other staff, the food was amazing and so was the service. Over the coarse of about a year the service has become terrible and the food mediocre. I expected more. Oh well at least we know not to go there again! I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. "

  • "This is not the typical Greek restaurant in detroit. The style of the restaurant is fresh and modern. The food is a great mix of traditional Greek with contemporary dishes as well. The presentation is great. The best part is the service. It equals any fine dining restaurant anywhere. I love this restaurant !"

  • "We came in the middle of Detroit restaurant week, so that could have been an issue... They sat us right away(even though they lost my reservation)... We arrived at 715 and didn't see dinner until after 845... The wait staff hardly came to check on us! They were nice enough to allow our group of 8 to sit together... The food was decent but the service hardly made the prices worth it!"

  • "I come to pricey Greektown Restr on a special occasions like heading to a show at The Fox. But Saturday's Tiger game let out when our table arrived and the drinking crowds poured in. Like a noisy bar Service was bad; slow or we had to ask for things to be delivered. Not what you expect during DRW. The food looked good but lacked preparation. Saganaki should be thoroughly melted not a blob of cheese on a hot plate. My lamb was described well and it came on a bed of warm rice with a warm bachamel sauce. But the lamb shank was cold. Like it had just come out of the fridg. I can enjoy Greektown at another restr with well made lamb for less money at other places. "

  • "We had a group of 12 people and the service was outstanding!! Sometimes with larger groups you are rushed and treated like an assembly line for taking orders, etc. But not here! The food came out perfectly and the service was memorable!! Thanks for the excellent dining experience!"

  • "The highlight for this restaurant is the food, which is really good for a Greek place in Detroit. Service is fair, depending on who you get, as with other restaurants. The bummer is the noise. It is beyond energetic. My friend and I were sitting next to each other and we had to speak so loudly (almost shouted) in order to communicate. If you are going for a date, this is probably not the ideal place due to the noise. But otherwise it is a great outing venue, possibly the best Greek food in town. "

  • "I had the quail appetizer & the Lavraki. Amazing! Disappointed that Loukamades weren't on the menu but everybody runs out of stuff during Restaurant week so apparently those were really popular."

  • "We tried Santorini for the first time during spring restaurant week. The food was amazing and the drinks were great. Everyone in our group was really pleased with the restaurant."

  • "The set $30 dinner menu for Restaurant Week had a nice selection of apps, entree and dessert. Worth the visit! The ambiance wasn't particularly memorable, comfy booth seating, plenty of tables. Good for large groups. Location is in the prime area of Greektown. Perfect for going out for drinks afterwards at Level 2."

  • "Hadn't been here since it was Mosaic. Energetic vibe. There was a Red Wings game, so it may not have been a typical crowd. We had our kids with us & the staff was great with them. Very attentive service."

  • "Ambiance was nice, minus the over-whelming noise. Hard to hear, hard to talk. Fantastic food! Good prices...Good location."

  • "My wife and I dined at Santorini last night. We ordered the Red Snapper and the Salmon. Both very good. The Saganaki Opa was runny - seems like they are not using aged Kaseri cheese. Overall the food was good. But the ambience is terrible. The noise level is very high… we were almost shouting to be heard. There are no sound baffles on the ceiling and the ceiling is not that high. That makes for a very noisy place. The place is very large and the tables are lined up like a cafeteria. This is not your romantic dining experience - if you wished for it based on the name Santorini. The bill was presented like it is in a diner… no sheath/folder. We could not wait to get out of there due to the environment…"

  • "SANTORINI brings a renewed renaissance in fine dining to Detroit! The location in Greektown suggests typical fare as most restaurants on Monroe. The ambitious menu offers a host of creative, imaginative appetizers, salads and entrees of chicken, seafood and steaks to satisfy even discerning tastes. Place a reservation online, simple as a Tweet, E-mail confirms. Service is excellent and attentive. How did the server anticipate my thirst? Magically, he appears filling our water glasses and leaving the carafe on the table. Service is a priority only exceeded by the fare. They feature the best of Greek and Mediterranean courses. Santorini offers an ambitious list of both hot and cold appetizers, and an array of salads. But, steak and seafood"

  • "I would definitely come back here for the food. The service was alright. I know it was Valentine's Day, but they didn't seem overly busy, so I was disappointed that the service wasn't very good. We never received a basket of bread, which overall was fine because it meant more room for the delicious main course, but it was just the beginning of the slow service. It took forever for them to ask if we wanted another round of drinks. I also noticed that the other servers were boxing up the leftovers for tables while our server just dropped the carryout box and left. If the food hadn't been as tasty as it was, I doubt I'd ever go back. However, because the food was so flavorful, I'll give it a second chance and hope for a better server."

  • "We had reservations for 5 pm. We were the first clients. Welcoming staff. The fried calamari was a dish to share. It was brought to table shortly after ordered. Very fresh and tasteful. We ordered pasta dishes. One of them was cold. We sent it back to be reheated. It was OK. the Loukoumades desert was delicious. The waiters are very careful and polite. The owner comes to each table to greet people. Nice atmosphere. When we left a staff member escorted us to the car. making sure we don't slip on the icy snow and helped us into the car. Good service."
