What a great find! I was very satisfied with the service and food -- I had the vegetarian moussaka and the chocolate mousse cake - both were very good and the price was about $20 (combined)! The restaurant has a nice atmosphere too, and it's convenient to the hotels on Michigan ave.

Went here Saturday night. We did not have reservations so we waited at the bar for a table. Only took 10 minutes for a table. We had 5 star service from the moment we sat down.

The best of Greektown in Chicago. Been going to Greektown for 25 years and never even knew Santorini was there. This one beats all the others hands down. Food (especially the fresh seafood) and service were fantastic.

We ate here on A sun nite for pre-theatre. Started with cocktails and grilled octopus. Octopus was very generous serving, could have easily been shared among 3-4, and was done perfectly- a light char- sauced with olive oil and red wine vinegar- slightly toothsome, but not chewy in the least, just PERFECT! Followed up with the Santorini salad which was... More

We ate at Santorini as was near our hotel and was recommended by a friend. Excellent Greek food. We visited Greece last year and the food at Santorini's is authentic as it gets. We had the combination plate which said small portions, they were large and my wife and shared and still had leftovers.

While staying at the Holiday Inn Merchandise Mart in Chicago, we took our sweetheart to Santorini's for an evening of Greek food and fun. On our list of fine dining, this is one of our favorites. I recommend this to any who will listen. We had a great time and took a picture with the owner.
