Santiago's always has a good energy! Lively, great food and drink, everyone seems to be having a great time. We have eaten here more than 10 times and each time the quality (taste) of the food has impressed us each. The staff is professional, fun and social. We will be back!

The food was fantastic, the energy was great. Rebecca our waitress did a great job -- very knowledgable. Came here for my birthday dinner with a few friends, definitely hard to beat if you're looking for a place to chow down and have fun.

A fabulous neighborhood gem and a perfect spot for our monthly Ladies Night Dinner. Great food, service and atmosphere. Parking is limited so you should car pool, get there early or prepare to walk.

The food was outstanding. Our waitress was well versed on the menu and made many recommendations at our request. Her recommendations were so good, we let her choose for us.

Nice wine list, fantastic evening.

We have been to the Key West location at least 4 times and this Orlando spot was not a disappointment either. The food choices were a little different but in a good way, more choices. We went with Orlando locals who had been there beforehand they now have a new favorite restaurant.

Really great food and atmosphere. Cannot find a negative thing to say aside from maybe a need for slightly larger tables to accommodate multiple tapas plates - but the staff was very good about ensuring empty plates were promptly removed, so a moot point.
Highly recommended!

This is the third time I have been there and taken friends. The food is great and I love the gluten-free options. Guests really enjoy the wine options. My only critique is that is it is SOOO loud and that makes talking to your companions very hard. I am not sure why people are actually talking at the TOP of their voices - basically yelling and oblivious to how loud they are! And when they are right up front it at a huge table, distracts the whole dining area. We have moved tables before due to this. This last time, seated at the same table as my previous visit, with no options given, it was annoying.

I made reservations for brunch with my grirlfriends and we had a great time. The food was delicious, a little pricey but definitely worth the brunch special especially since they have unlimited mimosas and/or sangria with the deal.

Making a reservations is extremely recommended; we had to wait for about 30 minutes after our reservation time.
The best spot for brunch is their front patio… we had a Great time.

Santiago's is my absolute favorite place to brunch. It seems pricey, but when you consider it includes a full delicious buffet(prime rib, lamb, roast chicken, crab legs, brown sugar bacon, and much more) AND unlimited mimosas or sangria, you can't beat the price. It's great for large groups, and for children the buffet is only $9. The service is impeccable. Seriously, go eat here. You won't regret it.

Three of us enjoyed a variety of tapas. The salmon was fresh and tender. This is a go to starter for us. It is served with creme fraiche, chopped onions, capers and crostini. Shrimp and chorizo was grilled and served in a wine and garlic sauce. The happy hour beef empanadas were hot and yummy. The diced fresh tomato salsa balanced the dish. For a first time we tried the happy hour Edamame Wontons. These were cooked properly but not exciting. We would not bother with this dish again. The Cheese Saganaki was flambéd at the table and delicious. We asked for diced tomatoes to eat with the cheese and added the leftover diced onions. The cool freshness of the tomatoes cut the saltiness of the cheese. Attentive service and every special request filled with a smile. I really wish this restaurant was closer to where we live!

It was our 28th wedding anniversary and I wanted to go to Santiago's. My husband was a little reluctant but once we got there he became intrigued. The small plate selection is fabulous and just as much as we wanted. The atmosphere is warm, the servers (Hi Rebecca) were attentive and the food out of this world. We will definitely go again.

I went to the one in Key West and was blown away with the food and service, so I was sooo
excited when I found out there was one in Orlando. The food was good but our server was
very short and abrupt with our party. She did not explain the menu items and was very
short with us the whole time, it was like she didnt want to be there and we were bothering
her. It was a letdown since our server in Key West was amazing. I will definately be back
but it just ruined the night. The food was very good.

We have been there a few times, and have always been impressed by the food. We have our favorites, but always try pick and an item or two that we haven't tried yet.

On this occasion it was extremely loud in the restaurant. It might have just been the location we were seated in.

The wine choice was excellent, and the service was top-notch.

Looking forward to our next visit!

Different pricing options for brunch guests (non-alcoholic, and/or no-crab legs) would make Santiago's more appealing. All things considered (reservation difficulty, inattentive service, small portions of special request items, high noise level, limited parking, price) I would not return. There are much better brunch options in Orlando.

I have seen and driven by the restaurant many times and always made a mental note to try it. I had date night coming up and decided to finally go check it out, I was not disappointed. The food was great as well as the atmosphere. The employees were all very nice and attentive. I am definitely planning my next visit. Great for a romantic dinner as well as for a group of friends.

The small plate/sharing craze has been perfected at Santiago's. Our party of 6 shared about 20 items between us, not counting 5 different desserts. Only one criticism - the plates came out too fast, resulting in a very crowded table and a slightly rushed meal. Waiting a little longer between courses would make for a more relaxed dining experience.
