We ate at Santorini as was near our hotel and was recommended by a friend. Excellent Greek food. We visited Greece last year and the food at Santorini's is authentic as it gets. We had the combination plate which said small portions, they were large and my wife and shared and still had leftovers.

While staying at the Holiday Inn Merchandise Mart in Chicago, we took our sweetheart to Santorini's for an evening of Greek food and fun. On our list of fine dining, this is one of our favorites. I recommend this to any who will listen. We had a great time and took a picture with the owner.

We ate here because my in-laws have really enjoyed the place over the years. I like Greek food a lot, but I didn't order the right entree, which was my mistake. That said I wasn't very impressed with the whole experience. The highlight was the valet parking, which was friendly, and very efficient. Good to get free valet in downtown!... More

Ate here with friends and enjoyed wonderfully prepared sea bass, octopus salad and a baked cheese appetizer. Have tried a couple of other Greek restaurants in the neighborhood of Santorini but they were not nearly as good. Service was excellent and the atmosphere has some charm.

The food was fine but since it was Greek Fest they ran out of a lot of items and there was very little lamb on the menu which is odd for a Greek restaurant.

Very good seafood. They are a cut above all the other restaurants in Greek Town. The service was very good and we enjoyed our food.

Form the greeting to the goodbye everything was outstanding. We took friends who had never dined at Santorini before and they were over the top with compliments. We all shared the appetizer of various spreads and and pita bread. We also shared an order of the grilled octopus which is bar far some of the best I have ever had.... More
