We are on our annual trip to Chicago for business. Sunday night and my wife had never been to Greek Town. I know of several good places but the wait was 1 hour plus and Santorini could seat us in 30 minutes. I always order...More

Took the extended family out for dinner at Santorini. Everything was perfect. Our server was great, helpful and almost felt like family by the time we left. Dinners were mostly fish, with one chicken and two lamb selections, 3 appetizers and a bottle of wine....More

As soon as I walked in, I thought it was going to be a great experience. The great decor and ambiance gave me the feeling we were going to have an outstanding Greek food experience. While the service was outstanding, that's all you got here....More

Clear that they have a great seafood supplier. I had whitefish which was excellent. Neighbor had sea scallops which were huge and plentiful. Rice on side was a bit boring with generic sauce. Grilled octopus and fried cheese a must try to share with a...More

I've been wanting to try one of the restaurants in Greek Town, so decided to go this weekend while I was in the area. I went around 4pm on Saturday. It wasn't very busy at this time, and I was seated right away. I was...More

First of all, if you must go to this once-fine restaurant, avoid Saturday night. It's mobbed, noisy, and the food and service are lowered several notches. Try to imagine a Greek restaurant with tasteless octopus; lamb that you cannot cut because it's all gristle; a...More
