Have visited this restaurant previously using a restaurant.com certificate for lunch and was told it can only be used for dinner! The only stipulation on the certificate was to spend $30. which we would easily have complied with. Ate lunch there anyways because the food is good even though overpriced. Went back to restaurant.com and got credit for my certificate.

Debra, I'm gonna be completely honest in response to your review. Restaurant.com states we have a partnership with them, however we do not see a penny from their program and never will. Our terms are not listed on the print out but theirs are, however you may always ask before you sit down to insure the terms and conditions of... More

My husband and I ate dinner on a Thursday and were 100% satisfied. I had the grouper which was caught that day, can't get any fresher than that. Our waiter was able to make accurate recommendations and had his own delicious special cocktail. Our food was so well seasoned and the portions were perfect. If you don't like it here... More

Thankful that we had a gift certificate. The olive oil dip was outstanding with LOTS of garlic. My husband's clam chowder was brimming with clams. He had the special which was lobster (few pieces) and gulf shrimp (lots of it) scampi on angel hair pasta. I tasted it and it was delicious! Unfortunately I ordered the salmon special. It was...

Joan I'm sorry to hear about your experience and I would hope that you would return based on most of your review. The salmon was wild and the stuffing was a shrimp stuffing with hints of crab. The restaurant was previously peruvian and has since been changed almost seven years ago. As a diner and foodie myself I understand your... More

This restaurant is a hidden jewel. Quiet calm ambience, awesome house wines, gourmet but unpretentious. Staff friendly, professional, and treat you with dignified friendliness...they welcome you back.

Somehow we did not return to Santhinos last winter despite several delightful dinners in January 2013. We corrected our error this summer when we joined friends for dinner. Santhinos is hidden gem tucked into a small strip mall. You must not let the outside surroundings sway you away. The inside is warm and quiet with a perfect selection of light... More

We had dinner with friends last night and everything was absolutely delicious - from the appetizers to our wine selection and to the last bite of our entree's. Relaxing and welcoming atmosphere, fine dining at reasonable prices. The staff was very friendly, pleasant and attentive. We each selected something different from the menu and they were all delicious. A great... More

We chose Santhino's for our wedding dinner and could not be happier with that choice! From the first time we met with the owner, Brandan, he went above and beyond and then some!
