We visitied Santuari for the first time and we look forward to MANY more visits. The flatbread were excellent. The pumpkin hummus was delicious. The salad choices were great and also wonderful. Grilled octopus outstanding. Scallops sensational. Wonderful service. An overall excellent experience.

The overall experience was a good one- attentive service, very pleasant, though a bit noisy from the bar area. However, we felt that the $41 price for the so-called rack of lamb was overly costly considering that the “rack” consisted of only 3 chops. No complaints about the quality of the food and the wonderful flavors and textures presented in the Little Gem salad, the excellent sea bass ceviche, and the sides of roasted cauliflower and fingerling potatoes. The cooking is excellent and the sort of high-end Mediterranean touches were delicious. The complimentary baklava cheesecake for my husband’s birthday was novel and delicious. But, overall, I think that Santuari will be relegated to special occasion status for us. Was hoping for a more reasonably priced neighborhood dining option.

We have dined at Santuari on three separate occasions and have experienced nothing but exceptional service, terrific food and a lovely ambiance. I recommend Santuari to all in the area who are looking for a different kind of dining experience.

Santuari is fabulous! Visually stunning, food is very healthy, reminds one of fine spa-dining. Our meals were delicious, had a chicken salad with a delicate vinaigrette. Would highly recommend it!

Yes have recommended - the restaurant is beautiful - the food is so fresh and the menu is really inspired. I've been with friends 3 times over the past few months because of the food - I never go out this often! Its so fresh, the choices are across the board so never have to worry about the vegan in the crowd, and reminded me how tomatoes taste when they're really fresh! Some of the staff experience is off - sometimes servers are phenomenal other times....; but know its still new.... Brunch menu this past weekend was crazy good.

What a great find! I read about the restaurant in Ventura Magazine and they did not disappoint. I love the location being close to the Burbank studios and having free valet. The food and service was great. We tried about six dishes and all of them were fantastic! Will definitely come back.

We were served okay by the server-not great. She was in between her stops at the table. May not be fault. The place seemed chaotic and rushed. We thought maybe no server was assigned to table and they had give someone an extra table.

Absolutely terrible service. To explain would take an essay, but the service not only was slow, the management belligerent, hostile and down right rude. Food and ambiance were very good but we’ll never visit again.

Wonderful dinner at the newly remodeled Santuari. Sitting in the back Green room, beautiful Middle Eastern decor, only mild noise from the front room and bar. Wonderful menu, excellent servers who could not do enough for us, though admittedly food service from kitchen was a little too slow. Rack of lamb with spices, muhammara and yogurt was amazing; quality lamb preparation, best I've had in a long while. Seared scallops absolutely melted in mouth. Mussels were plentiful, large, very fresh. No room for dessert, but server brought a heavenly rich chocolate cake, chocolate ganache with vanilla bean gelato. Couldn't resist at least one bite ( or two ... ). Will definitely return, in fact, as soon as possible

Service was sluggish this night, but owner came by to apologize and buy us dessert.

Ambiance is beautiful, food is very good, hopefully they change up menu or add specials for repeat customers like us.

We went here as a part of Dine LA and felt we'd really scored! The ambiance was great, the food was terrific, all the servers were very pleasant, and the upholstered chairs were so comfy! The service was very slow because they had staff out sick, but due to the lovely atmosphere, we didn't mind. It contributed to the fine dining experience to have such a leisurely dinner.

Beautiful decor and ambiance. Ceviche so fresh, sweet and touch of citrus worth getting. Grilled octopus was tender and not chewy. Lamb was tender and not gamey. Scallops cooked perfectly. Braised short ribs with chili thread was unique and added a little kick of spice. Roasted cauliflower was delicious with the yogurt sauce. Spaghetti squash was not full of flavor compared to all the other dishes. They had about 4 dessert options wish they had more. Ordered the brownie cake and it was moist and not overly sweet. Would come back and recommend this restaurant.
