A word from Santorini Greek Restaurant
If you need an evening in the Greek islands, visit our more upscale, white tablecloth Greek Restaurant specializing in Seafood. Our very comfortable, elegant environment is not as touristy as our neighbors and is especially warm and inviting by the fireplace on a cold night. In the heart of Greektown, SANTORINI stands out with its authentic Greek cooking and seafood with a Greek flair. The menu contains more than 20 seafood options flown in fresh daily. Hallmark entrees include Greek Style Whole Red Snapper and Whole Black Sea Bass, filleted by table-side at your request.

    I wanted to like this place... I did. It was ok at best. Our server was nice, the food and the service was just ok. I ordered the Grouper and I did not eat it (did not taste good/ was not fresh) I'm sorry.

    Going straight to the top of my change-up list for when I'm tired of trying to find the hot new foodie option. Simple, outstanding, old school Greek restaurant with outstanding seafood. Saganaki was the best I've ever had. Nice lemony touch. Same for the grilled calamari. Pastichio was lovely with the rich bechamel and lamb. Server was very professional: super-helpful, knowledgeable, and prompt. No pretension. Just great quality food and service.

    I keep this place on my list for several reasons: food is good, service is good and the place always delivers when I have guests in town. I use this when I have groups of diverse people because the menu has something for everyone.

    We were very pleased with the quality of food; the egg lemon soup was superb; the romaine lettuce in the salad was cold and crisp; the taramasalata was the freshest most fluffy spread we ever had; oh my gosh, the grilled octopus was great; shrimp Santorini, too.....and on and on. The Greek background music was perfect to set the atmosphere of being on Santorini.

    We were a party of five looking for Greek food. The setting was perfect, the food was tasty and plentiful, our waiter was attentive without being omnipresent. We especially enjoyed the variety of appetizers we ordered--tzatziki, taramasalata, calamari, saganaki and olives. Everyone got a different entree and enjoyed it. We'll return!

    Colorado cut lamb chops the best in town.l Also the only one I know of that has raw clams and oysters appetizers and they are also reasonably priced under $10. Nothing special about the Oysters and would not order them again, but the clams, which are not small, were fine. Valet parking for tip only

    My husband and I love Santorini! The food is absolutely delicious! The service is great! And the food is served very fast which is great when you're hungry! We always get seats outside and enjoy the breeze! Although it's a street view it's a very calm street with little traffic. I highly recommend the shrimp and filet dish!

    We like Santorini for their terrific seafood. We both had the Shrimp Santorini. Delicious! The appetizers of flaming cheese and grilled octopus were also very yummy. Finished off the evening with their chocolate mousse cake....I'm speechless. Our waiter Spiro was attentive and at no time did we feel like the dinner was rushed. Excellent evening and waiter.

    Wonderful fresh seafood. The Walleye fish was cook to perfection. My bacalao fish came in a good portion. Our friends reminisces and raves how good the whole red snapper tasted. Server was pleasant! Will definitely go back.

    This is a lively spot, I think frequented more by tourists that wander into Greek town than by discerning locals. Everything on the menu is forgettable

    Having chosen this restaurant because of the wonderful experience last year we took our out-of-town friends and was so disappointed. It certainly isn't what it used to be. The two fish that were brought over for our selection had cloudy eyes and should have been thrown out. The lamb chops were one bite each and too burnt. Can you believe we actually return the salad? I was so sorry to see this happen to one of my favorite restaurants.

    the space is one giant room w an "upper deck" (3 stairs maybe) around it. it was packed yet our table of four wasn't crowded w other diners. the menu had a bit of everything...steaks/chops, seafood, pasta, traditional Greek plates. all four of us really liked our food...Florida grouper, orange roughy, a chicken dish, & the Wednesday special (meat & potatoes). the only "minus" is they were out of the special of the day & our reservation was for 7pm. didn't matter as none of us had been & wanted to explore the menu. we also ordered three desserts...pineapple sorbet, rice pudding, & the Greek option (not baklava, tho that was an option too). again, we all liked dessert too. total for one app, four entrees, & 3 desserts & 2 pops...$97. awesome!

    Sanotrini was recommended by a co-worker. The food was good. Priced very nice. We went for lunch. 4 adults and 3 teenagers. Although we had one bottle of wine and everyone else had water and one coke, our bill was $150 for 6 people. It was for lunch, but some of the meals included scallops and tuna steak. Extremely happy, recommend visiting.

    My husband and I took an New York friend here and could not have asked for a nicer meal. We ate outside, and except for the ambulance that happened by, the noise level was fine during the July 4 weekend. We had horta, saganaki, swordfish kebobs, salads and octopus, with a house red wine. All was perfectly prepared. We were amazed at the intuitive and attentive (but not intrusive) service from the waiter and even the bus staff. A great place, inside or out.

    I used to always go to another Greek restaurant. About 25 years ago a Resident of mine said you are going to the wrong place, you must try Santorini. Away we went and I have been back ever since. Their food is great and I have never had a bad meal ever! The place is great and you will not be disappointed!
