About

This restaurant is permanently closed. If you need an evening in the Greek islands, visit our more upscale, white tablecloth Greek Restaurant specializing in Seafood. Our very comfortable, elegant environment is not as touristy as our neighbors and is especially warm and inviting by the fireplace on a cold night. In the heart of Greektown, SANTORINI stands out with its authentic Greek cooking and seafood with a Greek flair. The menu contains more than 20 seafood options flown in fresh daily. Hallmark entrees include Greek Style Whole Red Snapper and Whole Black Sea Bass, filleted by table-side at your request.

We love coming here with our kids. You feel like family. Staff is always willing to fix up whatever the kids want to eat. Food and wine is excellent. It’s a relaxed feeling and a feeling of warmth. Highly recommend!

What a great evening and dinner. And our server made it even more enjoyable. He made excellent suggestions, my friend and I wanted to order items to share, so he made sure we didn't over-order and end up with too much food, if there is such a thing. We had the grilled whitefish with those incredible potatoes and the Athenian salad with grilled calamari as well as the sampler plate of dips with warm fresh pita bread to start with. House red wine is incredible blend of Cabernet and Merlot, another great suggestion, just wish I had remember his name, but I will be sure to get it the next time. Ambiance was very relaxing and not over crowded, very relaxing and didn't feel rushed. As I said...great evening and great dinner and excellent service. Highly recommend.

Food was delicious. Of course we would rather be sitting inside but can't right now so that is why I didn't give the most stars.

I’m blown away that anyone would even rate this place, let alone as a top Greek restaurant! It’s old and worn out. They claim they specialize in seafood but the vibe suggests that it isn’t very fresh.

Highlights were the Saganaki, the Chicken Lemon Rice soup, and the fresh baked bread. The "Greek red" wine was a subpar slightly dry blend - I was hoping for a sweet table wine. Slightly disappointed with the entrees, but nothing was bad. The Greek fries were just steak fries with Feta crumbles - not really worth it. Got an extra shrimp with the filet and shrimp so that was a nice surprise, but would have liked more of a sauce with them instead of just melted Parmesan. Greek-style chicken was a little bland. Our server was very attentive though.

This is my favorite restaurant in Greek Town. Four of us shared two whole red snappers and one person had the dolmades and the other the lamb chops. We started with octopus and fried zucchini. As always, the food was delicious. Our server was very attentive and overall, we had a perfect evening!

I have grown up coming to Greek Town, and when restaurants opened back up I was so excited to go back to Santorini. We had the chicken braised in tomato sauce, pork chops, shrimp with tomato sauce and feta, rice, potatoes, fried zucchini, saganaki, tzatziki, and three different desserts. I will definitely be back to Santorini as soon as possible!

For a Saturday night, the indoor seating was pleasantly not crowded, very well spaced out. Service was great - attentive but never overbearing.

Food was delicious, authentic, and they had great portions for a reasonable price. We will definitely be returning.
