This restaurant has been closed for many months. Friends and relatives gave horror stories about the manager and poor help. Service is the cause of a lot of restaurant closings almost as much as bad food.

We have been to Santorini several times for both lunch and dinner. Lunches have always been great as the gyro platters and other lunch fair is great. Last couple of dinners have been lacking. The apps (humus and calamari) we good but the dinners were lacking. Had the stuffed chicken special and it was way overcooked (very dry). I think... More

The prices are reasonable. we try to go early or during off times for more quiet experience as it can get busy at times. Service is not consistant, sometimes great others just average at best never bad. I am sure you... More

Wonderful food, great atmosphere, some Greek, some American, often entertainment (catch Nathan Hefner at keyboards with vocals if you can...he's marvelous!)

I was looking for a new place to try that wasn't too expensive since I'm in college. Tripadvisor said this place was cheap so my girlfriends and I went tonight. While the waiters and food were all very good the price range is more like $12-22. Needless to say a lot more than I planned on spending, this made the... More

This is my second favorite restaurant in Hickory. I love the atmosphere, the food, and the value. The service, however, is hit or miss. We've had great servers, and then we've had less than acceptable servers. On one occasion, we were nearly assaulted by flying glass plates. Apparently, a party was taking place on the other side of the restaurant,... More

I was by myself there and I sat on the bar. I had a glass of wine and souvlaki, the food was not as good as is done in Greece as stated in another review, but it was pretty good. I traveled to Greece several times and I like their food. I would come back

My experience at santorini was great! I was welcomed by many of the servers when we walked in including Ina the manager. The Harris brothers were playing and they were excellent. The food was awesome and cooked just right. My server was very nice and catered to every need. The place is decorated and set up beautifully! I will definitely... More

Over the past month the service has been terrible, the drinks have been watered down (or they are serving rail liquor and selling it as top shelf - reprehensible!) and the woman running the place now is horrible. Come to find out, she fired the best bartender and servers via text and owes them money!! This is ridiculous in a... More
