Greek food as a change of pace with a family of grown kids and their significant others was great! A bottle of wine with some taking cocktails, octopus, flaming cheese, and good bread was for starters. The lamb special in sauce was mmmm good, as was the grilled snapper and crab legs. The shared Greek desserts were also sampled, and... More

My husband, 10 year old daughter and I had dinner on a Friday evening. We sat outside. Great waiter. Food was authentic and very good. Flaming cheese was awesome. Bread was amazing. Ordered swordfish, santorini shrimp and salad to share among us. Everything was fantastic! We will absolutely go back! Prices were very reasonable.

Great food, good service. Some of the best seafood around. Would like to recommend the grilled octopus appetizer, Red Snapper, and Sea Bass. In past 2 years have booked a birthday dinner for 9, and an anniversary dinner for 14. They do large parties well.

Wow. First time to Santorini after many trips to Chicago. What a treat. We had a large group, which the waitstaff handled as if we were just a few. The food was terrific and plentiful. Delightful ambiance that made us feel as if we were back in the Greek islands. Great value. We'll definitely be going back and bringing our... More

I have been to many Greek restaurants throughout the world and this is one of the best. The sampler plate is fantastic as are the various fish dishes I have tried. The bread is wonderful. I have eaten here many times and each time I seem to have a server better than the last. They are most personable and very... More

Had less than an hour before an appointment and wanted good Greek seafood in a hurry. Did not disappoint. Great Greek salad and a lovely steak and shrimp dinner. Wish I had more time and dining companions to try out more things. Have been here before and want to bring my spouse or friends next time.

Santorini offers a patio and a 2 tiered inside seating arrangement that feels like a villa in Greece. Excellent service compliments excellent food and generous servings. Must do the Saganaki! The combo platter has the best of everything, dare you to finish it all. Great experience.

Every time we visit Chicago, we go to Greektown to experience "home" away from home. We get our batteries charged in the Greek atmosphere of Halsted street! At this visit, we tried Santorini intrigued by the outdoor seating! It really felt as if we were in Santorini. We ordered a horiatiki salad, sausage, octopus, and variety cold dips. Everything was...
