    We went here for my birthday and we were a party of 11. We ordered our dolmas and hummus and they were delicious. The first plate of pita bread were not warm and they were crunchy and black on the edges. We asked for more as there was a lot of hummus and the nex batch was warm, not burnt and soft? Much better. 3 people in our party ordered rack of lamb.. 2 had 7 pieces and one order had 6? 3 orders of filet mug on kebabs.. One medium well, two medium... All were well done... Too done... These were the bad parts of the evening.. Otherwise delicious trout, moussaka and appetizers for the most part.

  • Summer supper at Santorini
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/11/2014
    I love mediterranean food, am not a meat eater and was dining with three others who were not very familiar with mediterranean and are meat eaters. Santorini had something for everyone. The combination appetizer platter was perfect for four. The hummus and baba ganjou were some of the best I've had. Our table ordered a chicken dish, pasta dish, two salads, one with a beautiful piece of grilled salmon. Everyone was pleased and agreed would return again. The restaurant is in a corner location of a shopping center with patio seating. It was a beautiful night and we chose an outdoor table and it was perfect. The service was excellent. The servers were attentive, but not intrusive. Would definitely go back.

  • Diner's Delight
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 9/6/2014
    We've been to Santorini more than a few times, but the first time was the big surprise for a restaurant tucked into a shopping center. The food is amazing, and plated beautifully. The entire staff makes you feel like family. We come with our family, and three grandchildren, ages 12, 15 and 17. They are adventourous eaters, and world travelers, but there are always couples and other family groups dining there. It always feels like you are dining in a European restaurant, and when you first enter, the smells are calling to sit down and enjoy a few relaxing hours with nothing else to think about. Danville has so many wonderful restaurants, and Santorini certainly belongs in the mix.

    So many places in Danville are "generic" and lacking character and flavor. This restaurant has character, is quaint and the food is phenomenal. We have had the mezze platter, calzones, kabobs, veggie platter and they are all highly recommended. Nothing has ever let us down including the service.

  • Food Too Salty
    Diner123VIP
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    I ordered the chicken kabob, which came with saffron rice. While it was certainly edible, both the chicken and rice were too salty. I also found that the oil and vinegar which comes with the bread was too salty as well. In addition, it was a pleasant night, so we dined outside. However, the outdoor dining area looks to be a common walkway to get to the Mexican restaurant upstairs. Having people constantly walk by took away from the dining ambience.

  • Second Times a Charm!
    jvmartin0707VIP
    Dined on 8/17/2014
    This visit to Santorini's was our second time there. The first time, I had commented that the Gyros Platter needed to be updated with fewer raw onions and some healthier lettuce (no iceberg, please!). Happily, they have replaced the iceberg with romaine, and have cut down on the onions. I would still like to see them caramelize the onions - that would be a nice touch! Or, try making a sauteed eggplant side (instead of the onions). But, everything else about our dinner was good. We also got a chance to eat outside since it was such a nice evening, and it was very pleasant.

    Have eaten lunch here a few times before, but this was my first time for dinner. It was Father's Day and busy. The food was good, but my chicken kabob was a little dry. Best part was the appetizer combo with hummus, tabouli, baba ganoush and dolmas. The flat bread is delicious.

    Despite some negative reviews, we still decided to give Santorini a shot. We were pleased with the food quality at Santorini & service was amazing as well. There was absolutely no bad service here. We were greeted while walking into the restaurant & the gentleman who served us was really accomodating & jovial. They kept replenishing the freshly made pita bread. It was so good!! Prices are reasonable & food is good. Will definitely return to this place.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP

    We sat outside on a comfortably warm June evening. The outdoor seating looks out over the parking lot of a dumpy strip mall. Greek salad needed more salt, acid, olives and feta. Prawn (shrimp) starter had a strange orange (turmeric or saffron??) sauce. The shrimp was bland and overcooked. The service was friendly. The food was disappointing though.

    Had never been here before. Went for a birthday lunch and was very impressed with everything I put in my mouth! The dolmas were divine, the babaganoush (spelling?;) was very yummy and so was the flavorful Greek salad and moist chicken kabobs! I would give it a 10/10 and will definitely be going back to try the lamb dish!

    Celebrated mother's day luch there this May. The restaurant was to busy to pay attention to us as we walked in. So had to get attention to be seated. The waitress was cluless about the menu and spilt the beer while serving it. The Mediterranean platter was a disappointment - portions were too small and not at all flavorful. The dish I ordered was cold when expected to be piping hot. Pretty much a disappointing lunch. Ambience is great and the apology for all the above by the waitress was the only saving grace.

    We seleted this restaurant just by reading online reviews and we were not disappointed. We had an early sunday dinner (5:00). The restaurant was not crowded at that hour. We had prompt courteous service throughout the meal. Four of us shared an appetizer platter and a spanikopita. Both were excellent. We finished every drop. Two had lamb shank, one pomegrante chicken and one moussaka. We all had eaten Greek/Mediterranean food before and found the food at Santorini right at the top of the list. Each dish had a unique flavor. The spices were at just the right level, noticeable but not over powering. The food was served hot....not always an easy thing to accomplish. This is a great change from Italian, Mexican, and Asian. We'll be back.

    Santorini's is a welcoming and comfortable restaurant. You immediately feel the ambiance of the restaurant upon entering and being pleasantly greeted. The excellent entrees are seasoned just right. Each bite makes your palate look forward to the next. My favorite entree is the tilapia filet with lemon capers sauce. My friends enjoy the koubideh kabob and seafood linguine. The food is absolutely delicious! The quiet ambiance permits comfortable conversation. We enjoyed sitting outside in the warm sunshine. It was like we took a brief trip to the Mediterranean. We look forward to returning in the near future to enjoy another fabulous entree. Thank you for a delicious meal in a delightful setting!

    Wow! This went from my top pick where my family and I rated this as some of the best in a Danville. The food was clean, flavorful, simple and authentic. What happened?? My food was now filled with blobs of excessive oils and dressings. The veggie dish soggy and drenched in too much oil, then the kabob lies atop another overdone blob of a dressing that looks unappealing and distracts from the purity it used to have. Lighten up! It's too much and why the change? How can this go from my rave to least fav? So sad...

The salmon and chicken kabobs are tasty and you will never go wrong with the Mediterranean platter- the best hummus and babaghanoush! Go! It's worth it every time.

    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!

    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
