Very Good Food - Great Location

We sat on the deck overlooking Old Town Pasadena. The food was very good - my lamb shank was not the best I have ever had - but it was very good.

I have been here many times and it never disappoints. For an intimate dinner or lunch with friends, the food is excellent as is the service. The seafood salad is one of my favorites. Highly recommended.

The food and wine were terrific; however, the tables are a bit cramped. Over all we enjoyed our meal and the location was perfect.

Reviews looked good, husband had been before and remembered that it was good, so was really looking forward to it. We booked and asked for a table on the terrace. It was busy and it felt like we were all jammed in, I kept knocking the person behind me, the waiters had trouble getting to us to serve without learning... More

Food and drinks were amazing. Ok for business meals but was a bit noisy. Smack in the middle of old town Pasadena so convenient to walk out and find a nearby place for a nightcap

The room is lovely and the welcome friendly but the menu is too long and the food very ordinary. Service was also very slow the night we were there.

The atmosphere at Santorini is great. Of course it starts with the location already: Old Pasadena. When dining at the Santorini balcony you enjoy the Old Pasadena atmosphere up to the max. The card of Santorini is extensive and offers choices from around the Mediterranean. Food quality is good, not high cuisine, but perfect for the style of the restaurant.... More

Visited yesterday after the photography show at the Civic Auditorium. Everyone at the show stated this was the place to eat. Arrived before the rest of our party so we decided to grab a drink at the bar. Upon asking the bartender for a sangria recommendation, he gave us samples of both so we could make an "informed decision". Nice... More

We enjoyed patio dining overlooking the quaint streets of Pasadena. Our meals were delicious and fresh. We had the pesto bowtie pasta and chicken, greek salad, fish, hummus, etc and everyone was more than satisfied.
