    My daughter, husband and I visited the restaurant for the first time last Saturday. It was very nice that the owner came to our table and introduced himself and, knowing that it was the first time to his restaurant, he offered us a complimentary appetizer plate. The food was nicely spiced, and we particularly liked the hummus. While we enjoyed our gyros (falafel and beef/lamb), I wish that they had served them with something more than chopped iceburg lettuce, tomatoes and onions (raw). A mixture of spring greens and romaine would have been been nicer and a more updated touch. And, sauteeing the onions mean an extra step for the chef...but, oh..so, so much better than raw!

    This is one of my favorite places to dine. The place was busy for a Friday night but got seated right away for my party of 3. The food is great. Love the complimentary flatbread & dip. Enjoyed the lamb shank and lamb kebobs. They were very tasty and presentation was nice. The service is always welcoming and very friendly. Ordered wine by the glass and the portion was very generous. Highly recommend!

    First, I love the ambiance. It's neat walking in the restaurant, and feeling like we are visiting Santorini island. The service is impeccable. Accommodating, friendly, and welcoming - such a novel idea for service attributes. Like it should be. Seriously, it's what all restaurants should provide - just good business that always make us want to come back. For us, service ranks right up there with the food. In fact, service is the first chance the restaurant had to make a lasting impression. We've always been impressed. The food, delicious. My husband is Egyptian, in which the foods are very similar. I must say, the food is authentic and delicious. We highly recommend Santorini!

    Excellent Food and service at a fair price. The only "miss" was the wine list which is good but" they don't have what they say they have." Rabbit Ridge Zin is prominently advertised on the menu but not available. It has been missing the last two times I have been to the restaurant, but still on the wine list. Also, I was told they no longer take my Passport card even though they are still on the Passport list- I'll check into that one.

    I had heard about this place from my daughter and her boyfriend so I chose it for my book group. We met here and had a wonderful time. The wine list was not extensive but we all tried different wines (by glass) and everyone said their wine was very good. They brought our table a complimentary plate of mixed appetizers. Everything was fresh and delicious. The pomegranate chicken was divine and I brought the leftovers home and my husband enjoyed it the next day. The desserts are very creative. I would recommend this place to everyone

    The portions were adequate. We started by sharing a wedge salad. I ordered the Pomegranate Chicken. This was served with mash potatoes and carrots. My friend ordered the Grilled Pork with the pomegranate sauce and it also was served with mash potatoes and carrots. For dessert, we shared Tiramisu and Baklava. A perfect touch to end the meal.

    We went with friends had seen for some time, so a quite spot mid way between our homes was needed. This fit the bill, we were able to have a good visit. The service was great, but the musaka was very disappointing. It was chewy with undercooked hard eggplant and was more spicy than expected (which was disclosed on the menu, I just did not believe it). The lamb shank was so-so. The waiter was surprised we did not order a starter, so he brought one on the house! The items on it were excellent. And the chocolate truffle dessert was a good blend of its parts and we all felt was good.

    Didn't realize they were here until the other day and decided to try. Quiet on a weekday evening. Service was exceptional - very, very attentive without hovering. Got baba ganoush as appetizer and it was FABULOUS - almost a bit sweet with a hint of mint. Brought extra flat bread without needing to ask. Had the pomegranate chicken which was wonderful. Came with very flavorful mashed potatoes. My wife had the moussaka - it was a bit spicy - but that was noted on the menu. Portions were very large - we had lunch for the next day set. A very pleasant dining room as well. All in all a very pleasurable dining experience.

    I had the pomegranate chicken which I thought was outstanding. My wife had the ground beef kebab which was very dry and came without a sauce... she was disappointed. They are generous with the wine pour. I would go back and have the chicken in a heartbeat.... Service was attentive and very good. The server did try to help with the kebab and suggested a sauce which he brought.

    Dined here when they first opened and it was terrific. This last time things seemed to be off somewhat: pomegranate chicken was extremely dry, out of beer, only had half the advertised desserts, cappuccino machine wasn't working. However, the lamb shank was superb and the service was attentive. Hopefully they can get things back on track.

    On our 3rd visit to Santorini, we were let down compared to previous visits. We were celebrating a special occasion and left somewhat disappointed.The filet Kebab wasn't the usual high quality meat, and they ran out of ALL of our favorite desserts! Even though our server brought us a complimentary Tiramisu, it wasn't the same. Apparently they underestimated the crowd they'd have that night for graduation season. We'll return and hope our filet is tender & our favorite chocolate Bomba is waiting for us next time!

    If you enjoy Greek food, this is a great place to experience it. The appetizer plate is ample and very tasty. My favorite is the trout, although you do have to watch for bones. We've been back many times. My husband enjoys the gyro platter. The servers are always friendly and attentive.

    We went to Santorini for Mother's Day and picked an excellent time for our reservation - 4:00 p.m. We beat the lunch rush and the upcoming dinner rush. The food was good although my husband wasn't thrilled with the Moussaka since the lamb was a bit indiscernible. I had the pomegranate chicken - the white meat was a little dry, but there was enough of the pomegranate sauce to make up for it. The combo appetizer was excellent and I especially loved the tabouli that came with the nice warm pita bread as well as the combo appetizer. We will definitely go back to Santorini - it was all in all an enjoyable experience, with the most excellent service you could ask for.

    We were a bit disappointed with the food. The Kabobs really didn't have much flavor and were dry (Combo chicken and filet mignon). The rack of lamb was four very small pieces and was cooked medium well (requested medium rare). The service was good and very genuine but the food wasn't worth the price.

    Dined on 3/16/2013
    This was my third time at Santorini's and I was VERY disappointed in the food. My first two times were for lunch so maybe the dinner chef does things differently? The baked tomato was cold and almost tasted like a canned tomato. The rice was dry and cold with very little saffron on it. The koobideh was better than the side dishes but still not as good as previous visits. It was only luke warm and looked like it had some kind of sauce on the top of it, although the server insisted it did not. On the plus side, my Greek salad was excellent and my husband said his dessert (some kind of mango/white chocolate concoction) was very good. I'll go back again but probably only for lunch. If this was my first visit, it would have been my last.

    This is a nice restaurant with good food and attentive staff. The menu is eclectic, containing Middle Eastern and Mediterranean dishes, both vegetarian and meaty. The noise level grew to an energetic level as the restaurant filled with diners; OTOH, early in the evening I asked that they reduce the volume of the music and they actually did so. All in all, recommended. I will likely return.
