Mediterranean
Dametra Cafe is a casual Mediterranean restaurant. Here, diners can expect high-quality healthy food delivered quickly in a relaxed atmosphere. The decor and styling of the dining room is distinctly Greek, specifically like one of the many coastal cities that the country is known for. Between that and the hearty portions and prompt service, Dametra Cafe sits nicely between an upscale restaurant and quick-service places.Dametra's Cafe features primarily Greek cuisine, with some Italian and Spanish thrown in for good measure. Appetizers include hummus with pita bread, fried calamari, grilled jumbo prawns and steamed mussels in a white wine and garlic sauce. The meals are split between sandwiches, pasta and entrée offerings and features dishes such as shrimp and crab ravioli, a salmon burger with red onion and tomatoes, lamb shish kebab and a Greek style lamb shank with rice pilaf and fresh vegetables.

    We heard so many good things about this restaurant, sadly we were a bit disappointed. The service and fun atmosphere with live music playing was great. The food fell short. The salmon didn’t seem fresh and it sat under a heat lamp before it was served making the sauce and fish dry. The moussaka was just ok. The dolmas were fresh but nothing exciting about them. The Greek salad was great. We didn’t want to order any desserts at that point after being underwhelmed but they still graciously brought us a sampling of the baklava which was stale. Overall we were not impressed and I’m not saying this to be mean in any way, we really wanted to love this restaurant. On top of everything, the prices were steep, but they didn’t match the quality of the food served.

    We had such a fun night! The owners and staff are so kind and treat you like family. As if you’re in their home and making sure their guests are happy is their number one priority! We danced and sang and ate AMAZING food! We can’t wait to come back again!

    We had an anniversary dinner there this past week and the musician honored us publicly. We shared the grilled roasted vegetable salad and the artichoke ravioli , both being superb. The staff often asked if we were doing ok and were very attentive . The guitar player was very good and the atmosphere was festive. This was one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had.
