I liked how the restaurant was close to parking lot and the location of the restaurant is on the second floor with a nice view. The food on the other hand, was okay. It was not spectacular. My friend enjoyed the scallops but my rack of lamb was not great. And the service was not outstanding either.

It was super crowded with couples but we were escorted to a fantastic outside table. The food was delicious and the waitress was great. We had the spicy tuna tartare, mezze appetizer plate, Chilean sea bass special, red curry risotto with seafood, poached pear, and molten chocolate cake accompanied by white and red sangrias. We were very happy with everything... More

Traveling from Palm Springs back to Santa Barbara, random turn off the freeway, random parking garage, glancing down an alley, and Voila, this wonderful surprise! Lovely outdoor deck, and great well priced Greek food! One of the best meals I had in a long time! I highly recommend.

The cafe Santorini is a family favorite! Casual lunches, formal celebrations this place fits the all bills. Accommodating service. Lovely food. I would recommend this place to locals as well as tourists looking to find a memorable place to eat.

For years I have visited Santori's during lunch and on occasion for dinner. The food is reliably well prepared, if not lacking the wow factor. The menu rarely changes which is a definite negative and the reason I have frequented the establishment less often over the past few years. That being said, the establishment is clean, polished, well maintained, with... More

The Santorini Cafe in Pasadena is a wonderful place to take a date. If you didn't know it was there, you'd miss it. What a wonderment. This was a first for us and I found the food tasty, service good, and the outside seating and atmosphere was great. Although named for a Greek island, the food is more mediterranean than... More

HappyHour a must. The food is very good but pricey . Good menu selections. We didn't like the fact that we had to keep flagging down the server to either order, get refills, bread and the bill.

Last Saturday night my wife's family met at Cafe Santorini for her parents' 60th wedding anniversary. I set this event up at this restaurant after looking for places in Pasadena that could give us a separate room for 11-14 people. We had a wonderful experience there and the food was delicious! We met in the Mezzanine room and it was... More

and everything that goes with it. Recommend to make a reservation if you don't want to wait, can be busy at times. Sitting outside in summer brings you close to Italy, right downtown Burbank. Enjoyable place and nice, diverse Italian menu. Friendly staff.

My wife and I had lunch at Cafe Santorini. The salmon was grilled to perfection; the mash potatoes were well-seasoned; and the vegetables were delicious. My wife's chicken kebobs were tasty as well as the humus and pita bread. Since I am not partial to red peppers, I returned the calm chowder which has many incorporated into the soup. The... More
