I love Greek food to begin with, but this was absolutely amazing. I started off with a Greek beer, Aris, which I enjoyed, and my sister ordered calamari for the table, which was also very good. For my dinner, I ordered the (lamb) Gyro Platter… a-ma-zing. The meat came with fresh pita bread and Tzatziki (yogurt sauce with cucumbers). The dish also came with homemade french fries, which looked like potato chips… so good! Everything was prepared so perfectly… everyone at the table enjoyed their meals. The picture below is what the gyro platter looks like (warning: it’ll make you hungry). Be sure to check out their full menu.
My family isn’t usually one to order dessert at a restaurant, but we enjoyed the food/service so much that we had to. I ordered the Galaktoboureko (try saying that five times fast… or once), which is custard topped with flaky filo dough and some sort of syrup… it was delicious. My dad ordered the Baklava (layered filo with almonds, walnuts, and honey syrup), and the waiter was nice enough to bring us another dessert, Karidopita (a traditional walnut cake) on the house. Of course I tried the other two desserts in addition to my own… both very good.
I give Santorini Grill 5/5 stars. The food was authentic and delicious; the staff was extremely friendly and efficient; and the atmosphere was relaxed, clean, and authentic as well. If you’re ever in Williamsburg, or even nearby, I would definitely recommend Santorini Grill. Next time I visit Dana and I’m in the mood for Greek food, you better believe I’ll be going back.
