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....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...More

Six of us went to a "pre" theater dinner. Lovely elavated outdoor roof setting. Great food and excellent service. Never found elevator. Could be difficult if you can't climb stairs.

We had a really nice dinner sitting out on the outdoor deck. Starting with the bread, which is cheezy and crispy; a delicious caprese salad appetizer; entrees with plenty of vegetables and yummy dessert, we enjoyed it all. Attentive service, also.

On a chilly day, we sat outside in their enclosed patio with heaters running. It was very pleasant out there. The food was all very flavorful and attractively presented. The hummus was as good as I've ever tasted. The service was professional but not very...More

A little difficult to find if you are not familiar with the area. But that is also part of the beauty. It's upstairs in a brick building with a large patio (enclosed sometimes) with a smaller interior. The bar is small but nice too. There...More
