The place was beautiful and the food was delicious. Got a few items to share between us (group of 10) for the appetizers and salads. Loved the Carrot Hummus, Beet Salad, and the Farm Salad. For my main, I got the grilled rack of lamb. It was amazing! It was so tender and melted in my mouth. The yogurt sauce also complimented the lamb well. Our server, Roberto, was great! He took the time to explain the menu items to us since it was our first time and he was very attentive. Great experience!

It is a great place for dinning. The middle room is too noisy, the back room or the green room can be noisy but not as bad. Overall, great service and great food. Recommend this place and find out for yourself.

Everything was fantastic. From the confirmation call I received regarding our reservation and the inquiry on any dietary restrictions to the seating options all of which were gorgeous. We opted for outdoor seating with a toasty heat lamp. Our server Tita was so attentive and gave us a variety of options to suit our no dairy no gluten needs. Definitely recommend for a large group or intimate birthday dinner.

2nd time in and another great experience. Really love the look of this place and the food is delicious. Ordered a pasta dish (tagliatelle) and it was way under-cooked. Brought it to the attention of the server who happily took it back to replace and the 2nd one was perfect and delicious. Have had the sea bass, short ribs, rack of lams, mussels, carrot hummus and all were excellent. Some great drinks, too. Try the What's Up Doc. Nice wine selection. As I mentioned, the service is excellent.

Friends have tried the brunch and loved it. A great choice for a meal.

Food is amazing, decor is amazing, people in tennis gear with tennis rackets strewn about the bar is a major drawback. Lack of other patrons destroys the ambiance. Hopefully it’ll catch on and more people will begin to go.

A really lovely meal in a great venue. The food was spectacular, but I think I’ll be back for brunch because the price points look more reasonable and have a broader range of options. Would be a great place for studio lunches.

My wife and I are getting a bit tired of the so-called hipster dining spots around L.A.
Yes, their avacado toast might be incredible, but if you have to yell at each other over the din, how much fun is that?
Santuari is like a "resort" restaurant in Burbank in the Toluca Lake Tennis Center.
Spacious with both indoor and outdoor seating, the food is exceptional, the wait staff very attentive, and
the overall experience is like dining in a high end resort.
My only small complaint is that they could use a few more vegetarian items on their menu.

Inventive food well executed. The pasta ravioli/pea tendrils was very good with the beet salad amazing and different. The sea bass was delicious. The "cheesecake" desert was outstanding. The only negative was a weak wine list which we were told by the server is in the process of being upgraded.

I brought my brother here for his birthday. We were a party of three and we got seated in the back room (it’s a green color) at my request. It’s gorgeous with these amazing lanterns - the whole restaurant including the menu has a Mediterranean lean, and it’s just delightful. The food is fantastic - among other things, we ordered the whole fish and the rack of lamb. Easily the best lamb I’ve ever eaten, and the whole fish was delicate and perfectly cooked. Desserts and cocktails are thoughtful and flavorful. Service was wonderful - our waiter heard us wishing for more candied walnuts on our dessert and brought a dish with extras for us!! Beet salad is a must have. I cannot wait to dine here for brunch on the patio. Special note that the chef clearly cares about both flavor AND texture. The ravioli appetizer came with some sort of bread crumb on top that was an ABSOLUTE game changer. Will come here over and over again.

Some of the best food I have ever eaten! The French Toast is a divine creation using cranberry reduction vs traditional syrup--so delicious! Shakshuka was spectacular (black beans, eggplant, feta cheese, green harissa, 2 baked eggs) Beautiful setting with great service. Very skilled chef and happy staff--always a winning combination.
