There's lot better Greek in Greektown than this place. The food is not fresh, not well prepared. Hey, they are busy enough, so I guess that they don't care much. Won't be back.

Stopped in for lunch in a frigid Chicago winter day. The fireplace was welcoming, the wait staff was attentive and friendly and the food was very good. The blue and white decor looks like you would imagine for Greek isle location. Upon sitting down we were served warm and crusty bread which had great texture and flavor. We ordered the... More

I have been telling people about this restaurant since they first squeezed my husband and I in for a quite dinner nearly a year ago. Recently a friend went to trip advisor to verify my review, so here I am making sure everyone knows just how incredible Santorini is. I had been to Greek town in Chicago on my last... More

Everything we had was fabulous- every dish was prepared with care! They get busy but we were seated right away on a Friday night at 6:30.

My daughter and I enjoyed a wonderful meal at Santorini. After a stressful week, it was the perfect place to unwind and enjoy authentic Greek cuisine. We shared the grilled calamari-it was cooked to perfection. The village salad was exactly as I remember from Athens. I had a shrimp dish for the main course and my daughter had chicken. Both...

Santorini has been a favorite for my husband and me. We took out of town family there for dinner and they loved it. We ordered lots of different appetizers and entrees and shared them. We had excellent food, fabulous waiter who helped make the evening special. Lots of choices in Greek town but Santorini remains our favorite!

We love Santorini! I like Greek Islands as well but they are totally different. Santorini is quaint and warm. It is not such a "get em in, get em out" sort of experience like Greek Islands. You can have a romantic dinner and have a conversation in a booth where you can both sit on one side if you'd like.... More

Greek Islands had a 30 minute wait (and they didn't care if you waited or not) so we went across the street. Very good first experience. Every bit as good as Greek Islands without the wait or crowd. The whole Snapper for two was fantastic! Great saganaki and baklava. Excellent service. I will definitely return.
