“There has to be better in the area”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

My wife and I ate here after reading the reviews on trip advisor . I had the onion soup variation that tasted like Campbell's pot roast soup with onions thrown in. Followed by an unimpressive salad . Followed by the worst cut of NY strip I have had in a long time covered with a habenero chutney that disguised any steak flavor .

“Nice atmosphere, good food, slow service”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

Visited Santhinos in a party of 10. We had reservations and our table was waiting for us on our arrival. Wait staff was prompt in getting our drink orders but service was a little slow. After a wait, we placed our food orders, which included salads. Salads came about 20-25 minutes later. One person in our party was given the wrong salad and waited another 10 minutes before the correct salad was brought to our table. We then waited another 45-50 minutes for our entrees. Food was well prepared and delicious and none of us had any issues with the meal. But when you have 7 PM reservations and you don't receive your meals until 8:30, it takes away from all the positives at Santhinos.

“Very Nice”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

Good food, great service and a nice atmosphere. Don't let the strip mall location throw you off. This is a fine choice for dining in Punta Gorda.

“Our Favorite Restaurant”
Reviewed 11 February 2012

Reservations taken and were available when we arrived. Cocktails were served, order taken, presentation of dinner was beautiful and food delicious. Dessert was offered but we were full. We couldn't have asked for a more gracious or knowledgeable waiter. We have dinner there at least once a month and would like to eat there more often if time allowed.
