Cold calamari, traditional dishes with little flair, heavy on sauce, light on fresh herbs and vegetables - we were underwhelmed by our experience at Santorini.

I have tried some of the chewiest, tasteless, inedible octopus in the past. You'd think I'd learn, but when it's cooked correctly it is tasty and enjoyable to eat, packed with protein and a small amount of fat. Santorini does grilled octopus the way it should be done, tenderized perfectly and then grilled with some herbs and olive oil so... More

My husband and I both enjoy Greek food, so Chicago Greektown is a favorite place for us to go. Santorini rightly prides itself on seafood dishes. If you like Skordalia, you HAVE to have theirs!!

Chicagoans debate Greektown restaurants almost as much as they do pizza and politics -- but anyone in town asked to list the three best invariably includes Santorini. With good reason. The focus here is on seafood, and it would be hard to find any joint in the city, anywhere and any ethnicity, that does it better and at more reasonable... More

When we think of Chicago's Greektown, we think of Santorini's. Their saganaki is a must-have. It's a great place to have dinner in the city and is only a short cab ride from the Loop hotels.

Everyone always talk about the place across the street...until they give Santorini a try! This is a great place to come as a family and an especially nice place to dine as a couple. The lanterns on the tables and the woven baskets hanging from the ceiling are a nice touch. The atmosphere is cozy and the decor is exactly... More

We visited on the recommendation of family. We enjoyed the atmosphere, the attentive waiter, the bread and olive oil, and the warm fire on a cold evening, but I wouldn't eat here again. I had lamb with some kind of traditional sauce and long macaroni noodles. It was heavy in taste and I really wanted something lighter and more flavorful.... More

this was my first visit and i was very pleased with the service, the meal, and the atmosphere. I had grilled shrimp kebabs and they may have been the largest shrimp i've ever had. everything was delicious and it was no problem to order gluten-free and dairy free. It was a great meal and i'd definately go back to Santorini.
