I made an online reservation for two for an early dinner prior to a concert at the Rose Bowl. It's close to Parson's parking and very convenient to easily head back to the shuttle. The staff were very courteous and seated us after a short wait on the cute, bustling patio, as requested. The place was packed, but everyone was... More

I attend a language school in Smith Alley and have walked past this place at least 300 times without thinking twice. About a month ago, had some guests, we went to Pasadena, and needed a lunch. We went in and up. I am really critical of grilled Octopus and have found no where outside of europe or the east coast... More

A Friday night dinner on the outdoor patio at this place was not pleasant. We were eating out with family we hadn’t seen for a while so lots to chat about. Could barely hear each other! Not sure if it was a combination of bad acoustics and a crowd of loud people trying to talk above the music or some... More

Our party of 3 walked in just after 5 when it opened and hoped for a seating as it is a very popular restaurant. It was our first time there. We were seated inside (white tablecloths but not formal) because every table on the terrace was already reserved and most occupied. We ordered calimari (grilled here not fried) which was... More

My family has been a fan of this restaurant for the past twenty years. I can't even remember how many family, birthday or anniversary lunches and dinners we have at this place. Service has always been great. The quality of food is always top-notch and the ambiance is relaxed and welcoming. Every item on the menu is great. Public and... More

We were in town on business and Cafe Santorini is within walking distance of our room (2 blocks). They have a happy hour at the bar only so we started with a glass of nice Pinot Grigio at the bar with the Grilled Calamari appetizer. The bartender, Dino was friendly and as we talked and watched the action on this... More

Plentiful, delicious lunch (and Dinner) meals served either on the outdoor roof-top patio or indoors. This upscale Italian & Mediterranean restaurant combines "old world" professional service and European atmosphere with very tasty & plentiful cuisine. My grilled vegetable plate was delicious. The hot bread slices were irresistible as well. Our guests enjoyed their salads & chicken cutlet. Santorini's, truly, is... More

We were first served food that was not what we ordered. The server took it away, ten minutes later we saw the table right next to us get the exact same order. Our food was greasy and heavy. It was very disappointing after the wonderful reviews we read.

A very lovely restaurant in Old Town Pasadena. Both the food and service were excellent. We were seated on the outside patio. Our server noticed when the setting sun was reflecting onto our faces and adjusted the shades without being asked. Then, as a cool breeze started, he further lowered the shades so we were comfortable. Our party enjoyed the... More
