Let's start with the bad part: if you can put up with being schooled by a twenty-something year old hostess, you will be eating in a very noisy ambient within 12 inches from the next table guest. We reserved a table at 7: 00 pm...More

We had a celebration dinner here last week. The food was excellent and we sat outside on the patio and the atmosphere was great. Our waiter was funny and attentive.

Absolutely delicious. We enjoyed the babaganoush, followed by the octopus salad, seriously huge tentacles and sea bass. We split all of the items. Super fresh! Great alfresco dining and excellent staff. Highly recommend!

Three of us just each had a wonderful salad at Cafe Santorini. Portions are generous without being enormous and the ingredients and combinations are fresh and tasty. The reason this review is not 5 is because while we had the time for a leisurely lunch,...More

Santorini is listed as an Italian/Greek/Middle Eastern restaurant and its menu bears witness to this. First of all, we loved sitting outside on the balcony with its wrought iron railings which reminded me of New Orleans. The waiters wore long black aprons and looked professional,...More
