Somewhat authentic Greek – This place is slightly better than Kokkari only because the food was more authenticly Greek, but only by a small margin. Apparently not too many folks know Greek cuisine since this place is getting top ratings. I would doubt local Greeks would bother with it. I had lamb souvlaki and partner had the mousaka. My lamb was not prepared authentically (wet and undercooked), hadly any roasted vegetables, and basmati rice was hard. The mousaka was bland. They did have a nice Greek wine which was excellent. Prices are good, location good, decor OK. A 'bellydancer' was performing, but she was Chinese and could not dance, play her zills, or balance her sword.
VERY NICE GREEK FOOD – My family and I spend a couple of days in SFO, before heading to southern California. I also look for different restaurants and we chose this one since it was very close to our hotel(HIlton on O'FArrell) . We loved the restaurant so much , very cozy and delicious. Prices were normal. Pretty good atmosphere.
An International Inspired Jewel in Union Square – SANTORINI RESTAURANT San Francisco is an internationally inspired jewel located in the heart of Union Square. As you approach the front doors; there are miniature sparkling white lights that greet you. The decor is decidely "Greek" in atmosphere an ambience. The interior of this restaurant is very pretty and has artwork, colours and music that depics the beautiful Greek Islands and brings memories of the island of SANTORINI . The menu is very well priced, affordable and has a nice and full variety of food items from the Mediterranean, Greece and Italy. There are dinner specials that change weekly. Some of my favorite items on the menu included the Mediterranean Platter; the Baby Spinach Salad , the Fettuccine Marco Polo(two of my very personal favorites), the Meditteranean Lamb Burger and the Lamb Shank. These dishes were tasty, moist and flavorable. All of the breads are baked fresh daily from the imported Italian Brick Oven. Extended hours make this a place that is perfect for Breakfast, Lunch, Late afternoon dining and Dinner. The service is very good and personable. The owners & operating partners are handsome, charming and very hardworking, Belly Dancing is featured on Friday and Saturday nights. This is a great choice for a casual dinner on your own or a special 'Girls Night Out". Please definitely do check this place out.
Good for lunch – My wife and I stopped in on our way out of our hotel, headed for the square. We were hungry for some hummus and real pita. The food did not dissappoint and the service was superb. The pita bread was fresh and warm, and the hummus thick and creamy. I could live on the pita bread. This place was perfect for lunch, and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it for a casual, mediterranean experience.
good atmosphere...food could be better. – My first impression was great as I walked throught the door and was greeted immediately. The atomosphere is great with beautiful decor. Being Greek, I know the difference between good, average and poorly prepared meals. My guest had a good meal...gyro dinner. My meal was terrible...Mousaka...it was ground meat only with tomato sauce, poorly heated as well.
Great Convenient location, Best Mediterranean food – Don't let the other reviews discourage you. They have the topest score H.D. Santorini is located very close to the Union Square and San Francisco shopping center. Nice atmosphere and very nice art works, Great menu and wine list. The food is extraordinary and service is excellent. This restaurant would definitely recommend.
Good food, needs work on service – A good place for mediterranean food, I especially liked their Hummus and Spanakopita. I liked the huge space and ample seating. Needs better service though.
one of the worst restaurant Ive ever seen.we were four and we went for lunch .first of All we were surprised ,because they are liers ,they show you a nice picture in the tv ,such you think its positioned around the Bay with a nice view ,like
a real santorini aisle.and its not
second we ordered four different food and we all four got sick .(poisoned food)
I suggest you never go there if you care about yourself and your dears
Great food and Affordable! – It was my first time eating Mediterranean food and it was great. The service was great. The food it very fresh and delicious. A refill of my beverage was brought to me before I finished my previous one. I enjoyed it so much that I returned again a couple days later. Santorini is Highly Recommended!
Bad Service Ruins the Experience – My husband and I decided to stop into this restaurant on a whim. The name sounded familiar and the decorations looked promising. Unfortunately, we should have paid more attention to the faces of the other patrons before deciding to eat there. The service was terrible, we waited 15 minutes between being seated and getting a waitress (who was being stared down by every patron in her section). She had our food dropped off and never looked back. My wine was awful, and when I told her, she argued that the wine was "just fine" and refused to replace it or refund me even though I had taken only one drink. When the manager asked the group seated next to us if everything was ok, he got a similar recitation but did nothing about it. The awful service overshadowed the cheerful atmosphere and tasty food. Don't waste your time.
