Waiter was not very attentive, didn't even look at us or ask anything when he set our food down. Spoke very quickly. The booth tops were grossly dusty. Vegetables were cold on the plate. Water was straight up from a faucet, had a funny taste. We thanked the servers who filled our water, took our plates everytime but they didn't say anything back or look at us. Food was definitely not worth the price.
Must try the octopus appetizer, absolutely fantastic.
Good food with lots of fish choices. Our waiter was great!!
The skirt steak was raw. I like it pink. Not raw purple. It made me sick. I am disappointed. I don't know if I can go back. Normally it's very good.
Excellent experience. Caesar, our waiter, was excellent - professional, prompt, sense of humor. Handled a large group (11) very well.
Everything as expected, however, what took longer than expected was waiting for the check. Restaurant did get busy and our waiter was training another person which is the only excuse I can offer on their behalf.
Our favorite Greek restaurant on the North Shore. 2
We love the food. Everything is cooked to perfection. Also, we have the best server, Dimitri.
we had a great time and the food was very good. It was a great meal for a great value!
We love love love Demetri’s. The food is always amazing and flavorful and server Niko is the absolute best !!!
Warm,friendly and delicious. Service was outstanding. We may even have a catered event there.
Mother’s Day with a large group. Everything was excellent!
The first server was horrible; 30 minutes before she showed up for a drink order, then after delivering the drinks, she didn’t come back. Fifteen minutes later, we flagged down another server who was excellent! The food was very good.
We love Demetri’s restaurant.The food is amazing.We all had the broiled salmon and my son said that it was the best he had ever had.We also love the grilled octopus and the fried calamari.Sam,the owner,could not be nicer and always greets you with a smile and a hug.It is a great restaurant!
Excellent food and selection at a good value. Four people each ordered different things and everyone was pleased with their selections. One of my personal favorites is a special that includes grilled octopus and fried shrimp. It is served with rice and soup or salad. I would recommend Demetri's most definitely. There have been occasions when service was a little lacking but not this time. We had a fantastic, attentive waiter.
We attended with friends from out of state
I was appreciative of the immediate seating as we were open table
BUT the service was poor
It was poor as we had a server who was only 1 week on the job. He had no training
The meal was served way to fast
We ordered appetizer, that came after the soup and salad
While we were finishing the soup and appetizer the meal came. The pistachio was cold
On a saturday evening I expect to enjoy conversation I expect the food to come at a normal not a rapid pace. I know Saturday you want to turn tables but do you turn tables at the sake of your good brand or your hot food?
I had to ask 3 times for peper mill each time the peper mill was a new one and each was not working until the third.
We had to ask several times for bread.
It was obvious the waiter was new,that he should have had better training for a saturday night
My guests and I were VERY DISAPPOINTED. WE ARE USED TO BETTER AS WE DO COME TO YOUR RESTAUARANT FAIRLY OFTEN
A DISAPPOINTED DINER
Typically great and authentic food. Dined there several times over many years and been very happy. This time, maybe the kitchen was overworked, the cook was new, who knows. Food was uneven, gyros meat was dry and tzatziki was way over garlic-ed. Athenian chicken was good. Service was great, we didn't criticize the food to the server since we were having a celebratory dinner. We should have anyway because it was out of character from past experience.
Always enjoy this place. The grilled octopus is phenomenal, cooked to perfection. The spanakopita was also the best I have had. The grilled shrimp with tomato sauce is cooked to perfection with feta cheese. Yum all around. Im always impressed.
The filo-wrapped salmon and the skirt steak were excellent. Our server, Adam, was very good.
Lots of excellent Greek food choices, plus dishes that would appeal to diners preferring another food variety. Very good value. Will return again.
One of our favorite restaurants in the Northbrook area. Many interesting dishes and very reasonable in price.
Food was average overall. Good bread, yummy green beans
Fish over cooked, veggie moussaka tasty but heavy. Service not great
Great service and delicious meal
Always good food & service
There were nine of us in my party. Everyone thought that the restaurant was a wonderful choice. The service was very good, the food outstanding, the ambiance wonderful. We all are planning on returning very soon!
My wife and I had dinner at Demetri’a last week. Nico was a great waiter- knew the wine list and got my martini just right. I had the double lamb chops. Very tender and juicy. The owner came by to see how things were going —very friendly. We’ll be going back!
Demetri’s is our go-to restaurant for Greek food and a great evening. My sister works nearby, and we go there to catch up, or discuss family matters. We always enjoy our time there.
From the moment you walk in, you are welcomed warmly, and treated as an honored guest. I arrived ahead of the reservation time, but was seated anyway, with no insistence on the whole party being present. The ambience is warm and inviting. The fireplace gave a nice glow to the dining room. Our server was very friendly and accommodating, and checked with the kitchen to be sure the soup was made with vegetable stock. He kept our glasses filled, offered dessert, and made sure everything was good. We always have excellent service there!
The food is outstanding! We love the appetizers, especially the Saganaki! All the food is fresh and made to order, yet the wait is never long. The bread is so good, and we are always offered more of it - which we sometimes do! The one thing we miss from an older menu is the Greek style halibut...but the Greek whitefish is an excellent substitute. Go to Demetri’s for a wonderful meal. You won’t be disappointed!
Wonderful food and service especially on a Saturday night. Server a bit slow at times but overall good service. I would go back.
We really enjoyed our meal and our table was ready when we got there. Highly recommend
Birthday on a Tuesday evening. Very attentive waiter, Nick. Asked to bring a caramel custard for birthday boy, and was treated to that and lovely cake cut into smaller pieces—enough for all to enjoy!
I love the soups of the day, and the fact that they almost always have a veggie based. I had the soup; my husband the salad; we split an entree, and indulged is splitting a flan. All was very good, and just enough for dinner.
Great food, prompt service, excellent waiter
It's a very nice place to have dinner or celebrate any occasion.
Awesome as always
Alone at the bar, date night, family dinner, Demetri's does it all. Never had any but great food, bar ambiance,( great bartender Alex) and a wonderful family operated classy operation
I typically don't write reviews, but I had such a fantastic experience at Demetri's I felt I had to! I told my wife I felt this was the best dining experience we've had in the last 10 years. Our waiter (Arthur) was exceptional-- we asked him for his opinion on a few menu items since we couldn't make up our mind and he told us he would be happy to, but that he would be brutally honest (which we appreciate!). And, he was spot on! The food was outstanding! My wife had the stuffed pepper and tomato and I had the slow roasted lamb which was almost like a slow-cooked pot-roast, but better! We will definitely be back!:)
Upon arrival we checked in and the reservation was there, but one of our party was missing so we went to the bar. The staff was very accommodating while we waited. The drinks were delicious and the clientele at the bar were very friendly. As soon as our last guest arrived we were seated. Our waiter Arthur was wonderful. He was attentive to all our requests and even sang happy birthday to our birthday girl after warning us that we don’t want to hear him sing! He made us laugh.
The waiter was attentive and the food was outstanding!
