Santorini reopened mid-November 2008 after a two week hiatus to move and fine-tune it's new location at 13000 Technology Drive, Eden Prairie (SW corner of Hwy 5 & Prairie Center Drive). The location has been home to three or four different restaurants in the past few years including Pickled Parrot and Canyon Grill. Nearly the entire staff made the move. The menu is familiar with some interesting additions (a wood fire oven adds several grilled items as well as wood oven pizza's). The Mediterranean standards are still there. Our party of four shared Flamed Saganaki and Calamari a la Romana for appetizers and a family sized Horiatiki salad (tomato, cucumber, feta cheese and olives in an olive oil dressing). Two ordered the Gyro dinner, one had seared Ahi Tuna, I had the Lamb Shank. All were magnificent although the Ahi was a little overdone. The wine list has been updated somewhat and the selection is more than adequate with some notable changes i.e. fewer Greek wines, more Sonoma and Alexander Valley. Parking is adequate and valet is available at night. There are several small to large rooms which could be utilized for private parties. In the Summer, the large outside deck looks as though it has it?s own bar and a great view of the lake across the street. At night, just look for all the blue and white lighted trees and signs.
Pros: Menu, Food, Parking, Live Music, Sunday Brunch
