The food was delicious and the sangria was to die for. The service was spot on and the waiter was extremely descriptive with the day specials. Would definitely come back. The environment is beautiful and the ambiance was to pleasant.
Great meal! The noise had to do with an outdoor movie being shown in the Plaza below. Service was not on point that night, but I've been several times and usually flawless. Will def be back =)
ALWAYS GREAT! IT WAS SO HOT AND WE ALWAY SIT OUTSIDE BUT CHOSE INSIDE.
SADLY THE HEAT DUE TO THE PIZZA OVEN WAS MADE THE INSIDE EVEN HOTTER.
Good quality dishes and great service. I would recommend the grilled squid salad and souvlaki.
Drinks are always great. Seafood risotto is also a must have
Great ambience- Beautiful outsdoor patio, only downside was the heavy bass club music they were blasting.
Great atmosphere and great food!!
Delicious food, excellent wait staff, lovely inside and out (patio), and vibrant atmosphere. I had the swordfish, the special, which was very, very moist, flaky, and delicious.
Great experience... food was great!!!!!! I'll definitely recommend this restaurant.
Nice atmosphere. Beautiful, comfortable outdoor dining. Attentive wait staff. Diverse food choices. Good specials and desserts.
The food, the location, the atmosphere were all spectacular
Not enough servers. Very slow.
Celebrated my mom's birthday here. Their outdoor seating was perfect on a sunny Sunday morning. Our favorites from the menu we're the beef kebab savory risotto and refreshing sangria. Staff were friendly and fast. Highly recommend.
Great apps and service was quick and friendly
Celebrated Father's Day a week late. Food was great. Our son, daughter-in-law, two grandchildren 14, 10 and we two - enjoyed the whole experience. We plan to return.
Lovely restaurant in Pasadena. Good service and wine list. Went with friends after wedding dress shopping. Good food if you like mediterranean the tatziki is delicious and lots of bread for the table.
This was our second time dining here and both times were similar...great location (especially for outdoor dining), good food, wonderful service, and a good time. We live quite a distance, but recommend it if you are in the area as a overall good evening.
Service was great, unfortunately halibut was dry and over dressed with too many ingredients.
Food and service were great - but with a large amount of other tables available, they chose to seat another couple in a matching double seat table right next to (actually almost on top of) us - they had to move the tables apart in order to fit them in - so we had maybe 2" between our tables. This new couple were loud and my husband's and my quiet anniversary dinner was spoiled. We didn't even order dessert - just finished dinner and left.
It might be a good place to dine for larger groups who would be able to have a table area to themselves - but I couldn't recommend this place to a couple who wanted to be assured of not sharing their dining space with others.
Birthday for my
We arrived half an hour early but were seated immediately on arrival. The hostess led us outside where we were able to enjoy the open air. The staff was kind, conversation volumes weren’t too loud, we were able to enjoy the music, food arrived hot, and overall the restaurant left quite an impression on my guests. They are already planning a second visit!
Wonderful to sit outside for dinner! The seafood salad was exceptionally good and was loaded with a variety of fish. A very satisfying dinner.
Reservation at 8. We were on time. Hostess said wait for a table to open up.. There was an open table we could see on the porch but we waited standing for 15 minutes in the loud din of noise and then seated at the table that was empty the whole time. Greek salad is uninspired. Waited about an hour to get our entrees! Waiter didn't stop by with any info or apology. Red curry risotto with giant shrimp and seafood is actually a mushy rice mound with 3 smallish shrimp with little taste and a bunch of shells around the rice many that were empty. The pasta dish wasn't finished. The pizza's were OK odd sausage on one. When we book the reservation told them Birthday. Had to remind the waiter it is a birthday. Coffee was cold.
Love the mixed seafood salad over greens. My favorite entree.
Great place! brought my dad and family for father's day. It was a success! Really loved the building, great food and service. Food is priced decently, drinks were a bit on the high side. Spent $270 on 4 people, most of that was for wine glasses. Probably be better to buy a couple of bottles.
This was our first time. Great service and delicious food.
Best lamb I have ever had. Cooked to perfection. The Santorini Martini was fantastic! I will come here again with out a doubt.
Our server was pretty attentive. The food was delicious! Will definitely come again.
As usual the service was exceptional. The food was well prepared and arrived hot (a pet peeve). The bartender also knew his occupation - the martini was excellent.
I was in Pasadena with a friend from San Diego for an event. We both love Greek cuisine. I read the reviews of Cafe Santorini and decided to give it a try. We had the most wonderful meal. The mossaka was outstanding and the best outside of Greece. Can't wait to go back !!!
Cafe Santorini always impresses my wife and I -- because we travel infrequently to Pasadena (we need to change that!) our most recent visits were 3 years apart -- and the positives are still the same -- or better. Great menu, great atmosphere--request the outdoor area (depending on the weather and your level of dress) it's great!!
The food was excellent as always. However, they did nothing to celebrate our daughter’s birthday even though they were told several times that was what we were celebrating. I mentioned this to a friend and she said that she had had a similar experience. Therefore, while I highly recommend this restaurant do not use it to celebrate a special occasion if you want that occasion recognized.
Michael our waiter was one of the best waiters I've ever had. He was such a delight and brought so much joy to my date and I. Would definitely like for him to know that he was the cherry on top for our evening. Thank you Michael!

Date night with my husband. Food was fantastic.
I ordered a chicken kebab and in place of rice pilaf (that it came with) I requested salad. They piled uncooked marinated chicken pieces on a salad. I had to send it back (I cannot remember the last time I sent a meal back) at which time the waiter kept insisting this was a kebab and this is how they serve it. The chicken looked pink inside and was not cooked but he insisted it was the marinade. He said he would change it out after being condescending and rude. Still did not receive kabab. I received chicken breasts and salad.
As I walked to restroom I was stung by a bee in the bathroom. I returned to an extremely over crowded restaurant and condescending waiter who was completely rude. Mind you this meal was a 200 dollar bill.
I have never received an experience like this in my entire life and I have been fine dining for over 25 years throughout the world.
I had a horrible celebration. The food was lost due to the experience. Disappointing to say the least.
It was a great place for a date. Especially, since we were seated outside. Excellent service! And great food.
Overall Cafe Santorini was a good experience. However, the one negative is that between the time the main entrees were brought to the table (not by our server) and the time we finished eating, the server/waiter never came by the table to check on us or the food. I would expect a restaurant with this level of reviews to have a server who checked in. Ours did not.
My dining companion had to cancel due to a family emergency, so I dined alone for our intended joint birthday celebration. The hostess and waiters were unbelievably attentive and even brought me a special birthday treat. It was a wonderful lunch.
