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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
