Santorini has been a favorite for my husband and me. We took out of town family there for dinner and they loved it. We ordered lots of different appetizers and entrees and shared them. We had excellent food, fabulous waiter who helped make the evening special. Lots of choices in Greek town but Santorini remains our favorite!

We love Santorini! I like Greek Islands as well but they are totally different. Santorini is quaint and warm. It is not such a "get em in, get em out" sort of experience like Greek Islands. You can have a romantic dinner and have a conversation in a booth where you can both sit on one side if you'd like.... More

Greek Islands had a 30 minute wait (and they didn't care if you waited or not) so we went across the street. Very good first experience. Every bit as good as Greek Islands without the wait or crowd. The whole Snapper for two was fantastic! Great saganaki and baklava. Excellent service. I will definitely return.

This has been my top 3 spots to always go to when going to Greek Town, so many choices on the menu. Everything is fresh, with great service as well. I would recommend this to anyone that wants a fine dinning meal with a Greek flair.

Normally done across the street at the Greek Islands but last night was a 45 minute wait and we had the kids so did not want to wait. Went across Santorini's had immediate seating, no wait. After seated took 15 minutes for our cocktails to arrive. Ordered taramasalota and took twenty minutes. Ordered second round of drinks, another ten minutes.... More

The 30 minute Authentic Greek Chicken is a broiled half a chicken that is some of the juiciest, most flavorful poultry you will ever have. Everything is delicious. The grilled calamari and octopus is yummy plus.

This was once our favorite of the Greek restaurants in the area. Can't say that we will be returning. Fish, once reliable and nicely prepared, was badly cooked and had some sort of strong, not so tasty, sauce. Others in our party complained about the food as well. It gets 2 stars, rather than 1, because it is a pleasant... More

Sat outside and have the pork chop, service was good and it was a great night. The drinks were very unusual and very good. Desert was also excellent.

We have always found Santorini to be the best of strip of Greek restaurants along Halsted Street. Unfortunately, our most recent visit was disappointing. I had lemon sole, which was quite over cooked. Very attached to the plate and quite dry. My wife and our friend had lamb chops which they described as quite good. Two of us had baklava... More

Wife and I had dinner here on a busy Saturday evening. Restaurant and sidewalk were packed, but we were seated quickly. Started with a tasty Cold Combo Spread that included four different greek spreads and the best pita bread I have tasted. Wife ordered the Greek Combination plate and I ordered the special Red Snapper Greek Style (recommended by our... More
