The best in Chicago – Santorini is my favorite restaurant for a number of reasons. I feel like I am in a Greek villa on an island while I eat, the appetizers including teramosalata are absolutely fantasitic and their lamb chops are the best I have had. Decent wine list, but the best coffee I have had outside of Italy. (Greek style coffee). Plus, I have never had to wait for anything. Highly recommended.
Favorite Restauant. Period. – The food is consistently served fresh, hot, flavorful, and plentiful. Excellent for both large groups and romantic dinners. My personal favorite, Santorini has the best quail of any restaurant in the city. Most meat and seafood dishes are served charcoal grilled and oh so good. I have dined here dozens of times and have never been disappointed. Can you say that about any other restaurant in Chicago? And they also have the best bread and taramousalata in town. They only downside is that some of the best dishes here are specials which are only served certain days of the week.
Bang For The Buck – I recently brought some friends who are from Italy to Santorini Restaurant in Greektown Chicago. Even though this is a Greek Restaurant, and you would expect the waiters to speak Greek. I was pleasantly surprised to find that our waiter also spoke Italian. Words can not express the hospitality we were given that evening. The food was what our guest's were used to back home, at the finest restaurants in Florence. Whenever I talk to them over the phone they tell me how much they still rave about Santorini to their friends.
Nice experience – I wish I could remember my waiter's name - he was fabulous!!! Very friendly and very attentive!
Romance and Greece at it's best – Santorini's offers a great variety of menus items in a romantic setting (a seat by the fireplace is the best!), as well as traditional Greek servers ready and willing to read your coffee grounds at the end of your meal. The food is excellent and priced very reasonably.
Flaming cheese at its best! – Great atmosphere and the waitstaff was very attentive and helpful. I was in town for business, so several co-workers and I went here at a friend's suggestion. We were feeling adventurous and let the server choose all our appetizers and wine. He, and the kitchen, did not let us down. My favorite was the flaming cheese (with a description like that, how can you not be intrigued?)--goat cheese, I think, served in flames. It was incredible! The surface of the cheese was slightly scorched which produced such an intense and incredible flavor. I wasn't too thrilled with my entree, though. Skip the fish entrees and stick to the meat if you can.
Good for groups ! – I have been to Santorini a few times with large groups of people. It is really a great place to be with a large group, order a few different dishes, appetizers, and drinks. The atmophere is great and so is the service. Down and dirty delicious Greek food. Worth a shot.
Always fresh – I eat lunch at Santorini about once a month. The service is always lots of fun, and they do truely have the freshest seafood I have ever had in Greektown. When I've brought my family for dinner, I have found the restaurant very kid-friendly.
