If you need an evening in the Greek islands, visit our more upscale, white tablecloth Greek Restaurant specializing in Seafood. Our very comfortable, elegant environment is not as touristy as our neighbors and is especially warm and inviting by the fireplace on a cold night. In the heart of Greektown, SANTORINI stands out with its authentic Greek cooking and seafood with a Greek flair. The menu contains more than 20 seafood options flown in fresh daily. Hallmark entrees include Greek Style Whole Red Snapper and Whole Black Sea Bass, filleted by table-side at your request.

"Excellent Greek Town restaurant. We had a large party and shared lots of dishes -- all were delicious. Typical Greek appetizers, such as taramosalata, tzatziki, tirokafteri, saganaki (among the best we've had), all were excellent. Horiatiki salad and avgolemono soup were also delicious. Entrees were also very tasty. We shared a few orders of lemon sole and lamb stamnas which was outstanding. Portions are large, service was excellent, and we all had a great time. We will be back next time we are in Chicago."

BETTER HALF is the restaurant that Atlanta built. Brought to you by Zach and Cristina Meloy, the couple behind the supper club PushStart Kitchen, BETTER HALF is a place where family is the inspiration and connecting over food is the focus. The ever-changing, seasonal menu reflects Zach's and Cristina's love for what they do, with the best ingredients from the South. Only one dish remains the same - the luxurious silk handkerchief pasta with wild mushrooms that Zach served to Cristina on their first date. <br /><br />In addition to an a la carte menu, BETTER HALF offers a chef's choice tasting menu ($65 per person) available at the chef's counter only. Zach can design a custom menu around any dietary restrictions (vegetarian, vegan, pescatarian, gluten-free, etc.). <br /><br />We look forward to feeding you soon!

"Better Half is by far the best, most creative, and most importantly, the most delicious restaurant in Atlanta -- very much on par with the best of such restaurant cities as New York and Chicago. We've dined here several times and have never had even one course that has not been beyond excellent. Chef/owner Zach Meloy (along with his wife Cristina) is one of the most creative and inventive chef's we've experienced. Each plate is always a perfect blend of creative tastes designed to complement and enhance the main food element of the course. The atmosphere, warmth and charm of the restaurant, along with the warmth and charm of its owners Zach and Cristina , makes this by far our favorite in Atlanta!"

"After too long a wait we returned to Kurt's Bistro for dinner and were once again impressed. We loved the way the booth was set with a table runner providing a very warm and inviting dinner atmosphere. Our server was warm and knowledgeable. And, the food was delicious and well presented. We ordered several dishes from the appetizers, salads, sides and entrees to taste as many items as we could. All were fresh, homemade and perfectly prepared. The spaetzle was among the best we've eaten as was the smoked trout. The salads, cucumber dill and German potato, as well as the side, Riesling sauerkraut, were also excellent. Our entrée, the special veal schnitzel of the day, was equally as delicious. Unfortunately we just didn't have room to try the very tempting goulasch soup nor the wurst, but that gives us the excuse to come back again soon."

Inspired by classic coastal traditions both American and global, Lure presents Atlanta"s freshest fish and the drinks to match in a converted 1920's bungalow. Anchored in the heart of Midtown on Crescent Avenue, Lure has a sophisticated but casual vibe, fluidly bridging the gap between a weathered seaside fish house and a fine-dining seafood restaurant. Join us dressed up or down for a four-course meal or a beer and platter of raw, chilled and really fresh oysters. It's Atlanta's fish house for the adventurer, the traditionalist, the hedonist, the fish-obsessed.

"Very good lunch menu. We enjoyed all that we ate, although we thought the portion of fish on the swordfish club sandwich was somewhat small. Drinks were very good, as was the baked crab dip. What was disappointing was that there were only 3 oysters on the shared plates menu (how can you share 3 oysters?) for $11."

"It was late and we just wanted a quick bite ... in the Financial District. That pretty much means a bar or a chain restaurant. We have had private arties here before (when it was still owned by the infamous Harry and when they still served good food). We chose Blue Bar at India House which we knew to be a very beautiful space but we also learned that it has good food as well. The short rib sliders were great, the hamburger very good, but the fresh baked pretzels with cheese sauce was, as the waiter warned, addictive. The atmosphere was cozy and warm and our bartender/waiter very professional and helpful. Can't wait to get more of those pretzels and cheese sauce (the mustard was also quite good)!"

Le Rivage offers you a cozy, romantic French country atmosphere where traditional French cuisine is expertly prepared for your pleasure. Fresh flowers embellish each table. Prices are delightfully affordable with incredibly rewarding selections; a true bargain in the heart of the theatre district.

"Dining at Le Rivage (after the theatre) was like taking a step back in time. It is a true French bistro reminiscent of those that proliferated in New York 30 years ago and are now a dying bread. Everything we ate was delicious, and all cooked in house. Lobster bisque, Coq au Vin, Boeuf Bourguignon, Mousse au Chocolat, all well prepared and served by a very attentive waitress who never forgot to pour our wine. Another reason dining at Le Rivage was like taking a step back in time was price, three-course dinner, with bread and butter and coffee, for $29 (and everything was well prepared and fresh!). Even the wine list was remarkably French. We ordered a bottle of Château Larose Trintaudon a Bordeaux from Medoc for $45! Not only is this a good choice for the theatre district, but Le Rivage is a good choice for a very good meal."

"Finding a restaurant opened for dinner in Atlanta on Sunday is a chore. The first time we dined here we were disappointed, this time we enjoyed the food. The trout tartare was good and the duck pot pie very good. Another member of our party had the trout entrée and unfortunately is was not great (or so we were told)."

Felidia is located in a converted Brownstone on 58th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. Opened in 1981 by Lidia Bastianich, Felidia offers a warm atmosphere where you can still find Lidia greeting guests and fans. <br /><br />Executive Chef Fortunato Nicotra has been with Felidia since 1996 and has brought an innovative touch to traditional ingredients and dishes from all the regions of Italy. <br /><br />Some of the restaurant's signature dishes include pear and fresh pecorino ravioli, veal shank ossobucco and limoncello tiramisu. <br />Felidia also offers a delicious three course price-fixed lunch, Monday - Friday for $29.50 per person, making the restaurant great for business lunches or just a nice afternoon treat. <br /><br />For parties of 8 or more, Felidia offers our group dining menu rather than the a la carte menu. The group dining menu is a five course menu and includes our most popular dishes and seasonal favorites for $95 per person.<br />

"Felidia is by far the best, most imaginative Italian restaurant in New York. Food is always perfect as is the service. Far and away the best pasta dishes anywhere. The guinea hen ravioli may have been the best pasta we've ever had. The duck entrée was also among the best preparations we've eaten. Emil is a wonder and, a though I know wine, I always ask for his assistance, and always order what he selects. This time was no exception. His pairings are perfect. We love Felidia and cannot wait for our next trip to New York so we can dine here again."

"We dine here just about every time we are in New York and have never been disappointed. The best moules-frites in the City. Salads are wonderful, pate is excellent, great wine selections by the glass. There was a special Charcuterie menu with unusual choices such as the duck Charcuterie that I had and that was delicious. All the French brasserie standards are also excellent at Les Halles."
