The food is always good, with generous portions. The service may be a bit slow, but it's pleasant and welcoming. Plus, the food is worth the wait. Great combination of spices with wonderful vegetarian options.
The best experience ever.Will definitely come back again
We especially liked the lentils, spinach, and the lamb!
our first experience with ethiopian food . highly recommend. great wait staff - attentive.
we will return
This is a great place to bring groups to and the food is so yummy. It was my second time here and my friends absolutely loved it!
I love this place. This is my third time there. My first two times were for lunch and this was my first time for dinner. The only recommendation I have is to have the music level lower. It was hard for us to hear each without having to shout. Everything else is wonderful.
Great food, friendly service. Such a fun spot!
Great food, and amazing service. I would come back any time.
It was absolutely wonderful! The food was delicious and arrived quickly, our server provided great recommendations and made sure we got a great picture of our whole group, and the food presentation was beautiful. Overall fantastic experience.
Always delicious! A great meal to share with friends.
Really wonderful service, delicious food at a reasonable price, and helpful staff! Thanks for making our birthday group lunch so special!
Really great service, my girlfriend and I love the food and drinks.
Solid food, great service and one of our favorites! We love to bring friends that have never been to watch how much they love it. Will always return
Very good food and service. We always enjoy Demera for authentic Ethiopian food. Highly recommended.
Such a fun experience to try Ethiopian cuisine! Not only is it an experience, but it tastes delicious too. I highly recommend the Honey Wine Sangria for my fellow sweet-tooths out there!
Delicious and authentic flavors and a great value. Two of us had the full vegetarian sampler platter, an appetizer, dessert and bottle of wine for under $100! Also right off the red line so even though it isn’t in our neighborhood we will definitely be back.
The food was delicious and the owner was so accommodating. She let us try the honey wine on the menu before we purchased it. I went with one other person but the family style menu looked awesome. I want to go back and try it with a big group so we can try even more options!
The food was great !!
Delicious. I've been multiple times and would go again.
We enjoyed our dinner a lot. We hadn't had Ethiopian before but really enjoyed it. If you like Indian food then you should definitely try this. The service was prompt and the environment was great for a casual night out.
We stopped by Demera pre-concert at the Riviera and selected from the Chicago Restaurant Week menu. Food was well prepared and presented and served quickly. Very impressed with the variety of vegetarian options and there were enough interesting beers for our beer loving companion. Great introduction to Ethiopian food for our daughter - so good she's now looking for Ethiopian options near her home. Try the basil and lime sorbet - what a flavor treat!
Thank you Demera staff for a great evening.
We went for Chicago Restaurant Week! Food was absolutely incredible! Do yourself a favor and get the honey wine! It is sweet but has a lot of flavor.
Great, authentic food, extremely strongly flavored. Service was friendly, attentive and swift.
Food was excellent- but I was left standing at the door for at least five minutes before I was seated-despite the restaurant being almost empty. Service was slow and I could tell the waitress didn’t care very much. Will not be returning.
Good food, generous portions, and all of this at a great price. Great place for dates.
It was great all around !!
The one thing that sticks out for me was the wonderful service handled by the servers. Though the place was crowded (restaurant week) the servers were polite and very accommodating. I really appreciate that. I would definitely come back and enjoy some other selections available.
Went for restaurant week - great value! Lots of options for Vegetarian's & meat lovers alike. Will be back for sure.
Friendly staff and absolutely delicious food! Highly recommend!
Everything was so wonderful. Will absolutely go again!
This was my first experience at this restaurant and I absolutely loved it! The food was a bit spicy but nothing could not handle. The server was very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely go back again!
tasty Ethiopian spot. Doro wot was amazing.
Great food and service. Take the chefs advice!!
This was my second time at Demera and it was just as incredible as the first time. My waitress was very knowledgeable, friendly, and outgoing. The food is was well seasoned, flavorful and bright and vibrant. It it is definitely worth the cross time drive.
One of mm y too five regular restaurants in Chicago. Always satisfying to the taste buds.
Great, tasty food. The vegetarian options are fantastic. Service is basic - friendly and efficient. Perfect for a quick dinner or to get together with a group
Fantastic taste and service!! The food may not look incredibly appetizing at first, but the taste is phenomenal!
Great dinner good service!
Amazing food I’ll be back
A great dinner as always--and the staff is wonderful at managing special food needs for one GF diner and another who is vegetarian.
