Authentic Greek food is becoming more difficult to find outside of Greektown in Chicago. Demetrio’s food was on point! We’ll be back!

We loved having a family dinner at Demetries! Because we were a party of 6, they seated us in a separate area overlooking the garden. The menu pleased everyone and the food was perfectly cooked and presented.

I was excited based on the good review but host was really rude and food was bad no taste and meat was hard to chew - I couldn’t even eat. When I said that food was not good they told me they never had complain. Will not go back ever , sorry

Demetri’s is now our favorite go to for Greek food . We’ve been here several times over the past year , and each meal/experience has been fantastic. My wife wanted Greek for her Birthday dinner last week , and Demetri’s delivered a great family dining experience. Our server ( George ) was the best we’ve had thus far. He was there anytime we needed anything - and had an effortless style. Plus , his funny banter back and forth with us made it even better . As usual , every dish we had was just wonderful . The calamari appetizer was crisp and fresh - followed by a freshly made batch of avgolemono soup - what a great start ! Don’t forget the hot bread and olive oil . My wife’s spanakopita hit all the right notes, and my gyros platter was outstanding as well . Needless to say , we will be back again soon !

Great service and delicious food. This was our 1st dining in experience since COVID. The tables were very well spaced out. Wait staff wore masks consistently. The owner was very gracious. I had the lemon chicken, delicious. My husband had the perch. Very generous portions. They have a great menu and their prices are very fair.

We ordered the pork kabobs as an appetizer and chicken and steak kabobs as an entrée. Delicious. The salad, soup, rice and potatoes were all great as well. Our waiter was wonderful and the wine was good too.

We had a wonderful meal at Demetri's for my Birthday. There were four of us and we were seated socially distanced from other tables. We actually were in a back room with only one other table with people on the other side of the room. Our server, Greg, was amazing! He made it a fun night and divided our salad and poured our wine. The food was amazing. I had the Athenian chicken which was half a chicken with lemon and wine. Delicious! The Village salad was wonderful as well. My mom had the lamb chops and they were cooked perfectly. The Saganaki was wonderful too with the fresh warm bread. Opa!! Thanks for everything Demetri's!

Owner was walking around with mask under his nose not right
I asked server about eatting inside he said they do whatever they need to do to make it Wk. Not safe not right

My wife and I ate here because it's near home and we wanted something nicer than takeout for Saturday dinner. They were busy but uncrowded enough to feel safe. Our booth was comfortable and I felt distanced but not isolated.

This is an old-school family restaurant serving standard Greek fare. The staff was friendly and seemed to know many of the other diners. Our waiter was very good about filling our water and bread and my soda. We were unoriginal and ordered saganaki as our appetizer, and we got what we expected. (Opaa! Whoosh!) The food was very good but not excellent.

All in all, it was a pleasant but not spectacular experience, and as it's in the neighborhood we'll definitely be back.

Demetri's is our "go to" Greek restaurant at home. Their service is always friendly and efficient and the food is authentic and well-priced. Our favorite items are, of course, the gyros platter and the moussaka. On this visit, one of our guests ordered the beef kabob which was slightly overdone, but still good quality meat. You can count on great service and a good meal at fair prices at Demetri's!
