Brightened up old school that is still good

Santorini has been around a long time as evidenced by the yellowing newspaper clippings on the wall. I understand that they recently updated the outside and the inside looks fresh. The service is great. The food is good and plentiful. Certainly not a quiet restaurant, Santorini is doing a nice job... read more

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

As a native Chicagoan, I have been dining in Greek Town for since childhood. Santorini is my favorite restaurant in Greek Town. The service is always fantastic and the food is amazing. While others are waiting in line for a more well known and crowded restaurant across the street, I prefer the more relaxed style and attentive service at Santorini.... More

Below average. Would return or recommend. Nothing was very good-not even the salad. From the appetizer to the dessert, I would say everything was below average.

We go to the lovely Santorini Restaurant in Chicago about once a month. Never disappointed in the food, the service or the atmosphere. We tend to get small plates and share. Favorites include charcoal-grilled octopus, grilled zucchini which is served with a garlicky thick dip, clams and the Santorini salad. Their seafood is the freashest and always cooked to perfection.... More

Santorini has the absolutely best lamb chops I've ever tasted. Succulent, perfectly med-rare; I even gnawed the bones.

Good atmosphere. Good saganaki. Excellent whole grilled fish. So so salad. Great grilled octopus. The best at Greek Town Chicago. Valet parking is great also. Good attentive service too. Good Greek wine selection.

The food was terrific. Flaming cheese, grilled mushrooms, horitiki salad - all very good! My entre was lamb and artichoke. It all came with a wine-butter-lemon hollandaise sauce and the lamb just fell off the bone. Melt in your mouth tender. I recommend trying this place!

I went to this place for the first time on a recommendation from a friend who lives in Chicago. They have a large menu that is reasonably priced. we had the fried cheese as an appetizer which was as great as the flaming presentation. OPPA! I had the lamb chops which were done to perfections. We loved it and will... More
