Cafe Santorini never disappoints. A top notch wait staff and a good variety of excellent food make for a wonderful time.

My friend and I expected a lot more from Cafe Santorini. Our waiter seemed distracted, poor service. The waiter serving water though was very friendly and helpful. I won't be in a hurry to return. The food wasn't very exciting and didn't seem a good example of Mediterranean food.

We were in Pasadena on vacation and chose this restaurant based on positive Yelp reviews. Based on our experience, we wholeheartedly agree with the Yelpers! We had a delicious dinner al fresco and we'd certainly return. Our son who's a vegetarian and joined us also really enjoyed his meal, which consisted of roasted butternut squash, quinoa, and other veggies . . . both healthy & tasty.

Nice find on OpenTable. We love Mediterranean foods and this offered a diversified variety of appetizers, hot and cold, and sharing options. We made reservations and got there a little early so we were asked if we could wait at the bar until a table was cleaned. We ordered two drinks and they were great. The hostess came to us and said that our table was ready. However, when we returned to the hostess table, we were told to wait another 5 minutes. Seems they were short on cleaning staff. They apologized for the extra wait time and when we were seated, the waiter also apologized for the additional wait time. We were seated on the outside patio with a corner table for two which just perfect. They brought us some bread which was kind of a thicker type of pita and it was very tasty. Our main course meals came promptly and they were delicious. We would recommend to anyone and we plan to go again.

We booked dinner here for Valentine's and because it was rated high as a romantic dinner venue. Although the setting, outdoor rooftop in Old Town Pasadena, looks great in photos, we found the restaurant packed, and the seating was horrible: not a private table for 2 in the whole restaurant: all thin tables side by side with other tables so that you were sitting closer to your neighbor than your partner across the table.

The food was very good, a mix of Italian and Middle eastern, and their baked dishes, pizzas and bread were excellent. We had a glitch with service: waited over 15 minutes without any contact with the waiter. When I got up to get help, the waiter for an adjacent section came over and took over for us very well. Apparently there was a problem with the computer generating the bills.

Overall: good food, location, but the seating was bad and the service borderline. Not romantic.

Absolutely lovely for an intimate date night with my husband. The food was to die for - we had the steak special and the Santorini pizza which is incredible. The service was wonderful; our waiter did not intrude or bother us but we still felt taken care of. Sitting on the patio with its beautiful lights was divine, and made for a wonderful setting for conversation.

Our friends were visiting from Cape Cod and it was a perfect place to take them on a beautiful California afternoon We sat outside and it was lovely
My husband had the beef kabob and I had the shrimp with angel hair pasta. Both delicious The service was good and timing just right. We were able to enjoy our drinks and dessert without being hurried.
Perfect place for lunch or dinner See you again soon
