Exceeded expectations

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

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

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 of keeping up with the times.

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.
