Santorini Greek Restaurant
We had a party of 6 and since our reservation was on a weeknight at 8:00, the restaurant was not crowded. That did not prevent a festive atmosphere for people dining. The food was excellent and our server was amazing. He was moving very quickly yet not so when he was at our table. He was very attentive and absolutely great to work with. A big OPAH to Santorini!
Surprisingly delicious! Grilled octopus appetizer was tender and tasty. Red snapped (big enough for two to share) was wonderful.
Terrific Greek food and wines in one of the prettiest dining rooms in Chicago. Good service.
FOOD WAS NOT THE BEST. SERVICE WAS SLOS AND THE WAITER ROUGH
Never disappointed with the great food and attention to detail. Staff very knowledgeable about the wine list--helpful when you want to try a Greek wine.
Nice lunch and excellent food and service. A repeat visit is in order.
Santorini was initially recommended to me as a great place to get a steak near Union Station. Their filet mignon was superb, but in subsequent visits, every dish has pleased. Despite its size, the service is personal and pleasing. Flaming dishes light up the whole restaurant. Our last visit, started with the best half-boul of crusty bread, pleased us with egg-lemon soup, grilled eggplant appetizer, moussaka, and sauteed walleye pike, served with a lemony sauce that provided everything one could want from a fish. The saute was perfectly boned and crispy. Desserts look great, but we were too well-fed to order them. The servings are large, so if you live nearby or have a fridge and microwave in your hotel room, you're in luck.
Fantastic food, service, and ambiance. Just a great time and experience.
Good Greek food with the requisite atmosphere that you would expect. Everyone enjoyed their entrees although the fried Baccalao (Cod) was tough).
Cozy restaurant, but still with the class you expect in greektown
230.00 for three....! 50.00 for two lamb chops, no salad which was ordered, waiter had a major attitude "ALEX", all in all a very unpleasant experience. Will never go back.....
The waiter was helpful & attentive. The char grilled octopus was awesome & shrimp tourmaline was delicious. The scallops were fresh & may be the best I’ve ever had. Would recommend this restaurant highly & return to it next time we’re in Chicago.
We had a wonderful time, every thing and everyone was delightful and the food was amazing. Thank you for making our night fabulous!
The food is wonderful, very attentive service and the price is reasonable. I was only disappointed they didn’t have the fire lit in the fireplaces because it was a chilly night!
Perfectly cooked octopus and zucchini! The chicken was tender and juicy moussaka the best I've ever had.
Excellent food and servuce
Staff was very friendly
Valet parking is a plus
Staff was amazing! The food was not as good as I would have hoped.
Great food and excellent service! Well worth the price.
Great atmosphere and wonderful food. Take a group and stay awhile.
Palm Sunday family tradition. The only place we will go on this day is Santorini for the best fish in Greektown.
Wonderful experience, as always. We had a very good lunch on Easter Sunday, the service was excellent. Santorini is our favorite Greek restaurant.
Overall wasn't a great experience. The waiter had issues describing sizing of a dish. We asked 'how big is the bowl for the clam chowder?'. And he just said 'a cup is this big (gestured the size) and the bowl is just bigger'. How big? So he had a heavy accent so I had to ask him to repeat a few times. He showed signs of impatience and annoyance. It was kind of hard to hear as the dining area was really noisy. The waiter wasn't really friendly. The grilled calamari was amazing but the rest wasn't worth the money. Clam chowder had little seafood and mostly onion it it. The grilled octopus salad was very salty and the seafood platter was very bland. We ordered the side dish of vegetables but gave us potatoes. Never he came back to ask how was the food. (what happened if the steak you ordered was too over cooked and you requested medium rare?). Though the restaurant was recommended by a few sites, I think you should be aware. 3 out of 5 stars.
Service was horrible. The restaurant adds 18% gratuity automatically to the bill unfortunately, the servers appear to know that and and care less about the service since they are receiving the tip in advance. Very late in bringing the food, cane cold, wrong temperature for steak and did not bring side dishes disputed repeated requests.
Wish they would bring back Damato's bread. Current is OK. Food quality a little lower than prior visits but maybe because it was a busy Friday evening. Usually I go during low periods during the week.
Food was very good. The reservation was honored immediately and the wait staff was friendly and efficient.
Santorini is the best of the Greek town restaurants. The menu includes all the classic dishes, and servings are robust. The service is attentive. The dining room is large and nicely arranged with various seating areas and a pleasant atmosphere. Good spot for a large group or dinner for two. Best of all, it is not a noisy place so you can enjoy both the good and the company.
Great selection of food, wonderful server, ample portions. Very happy with Santorini!
We had a great time and the wait staff was on top of our large party!
Food was delicious, service was awesome. A fun time.
Loved it. We all did. Food & wine we’re great. Thank you
It was a busy Friday and we were a large group of nine. Still, that is no excuse for the quality of the food. Several of the dishes were over cooked ( my shrimp was left under the broiler too long and everything was stuck to the plate in a plastic-like hard covering of burnt cheese). I didn’t have the energy to send it back. We were gathered to remember a friend who had died 2 weeks ago.
The food is always great, but this visit, the food was greater. Don’t get me wrong, it’s always great, this visit was better. Service was excellent, we’ll be back.
Excellent, abundant Greek classics. We enjoyed saganski, calamari salad, stuffed grape leaves, souvlaki, and Greek wine.
Great food, best Athenian salad ever (I had with the salmon & it was perfect). Also very family friendly for our young kids and excellent service! Haven't been there in a while but will be a regular there for sure!
Mentioned to my server and the host that we were celebrating a birthday. I also mentioned this in my open table reservation. There was no acknowledgement, even though two other tables had a birthday celebration with dessert. Disappointed and no need to return
I loved it because the food is delicious and sufficient, and the music is great.
Good food. Service efficient but surly waiter made it less than pleasant.
Fresh, classic greek food. Definitely a repeat diner here. Seafood and BBQ lamb are the staples here.
Great selection of fish and Greek traditional dishes. Excellent service good value.
