Fantastic authentic food. A kind and attentive staff. Highly recommend!
This was our second time at Demera and the food was as good as we remembered. We sat outside, which was more comfortable for us since the dining room was full and the French doors were mostly closed. The outdoor space is rough but it was fun to take in the activity on the street.
We love coming here, and drive from Michigan to do so. Love the food, and today this time we had dessert, too.
What a delicious and wonderful dinner! We were well attended to throughout our meal. The appetizer and entrées were packed with flavor. All-around lovely experience. Thank you!
The best food I have had in a long time!!!
Great food, great experience! Would definitely recommend!
I have been here on a number of occasions. And as always, the service, food and atmosphere was first class level! I love the energy in this restaurant. The people are so friendly and interactive. Elijah was our waiter and he made my girlfriend who has never been to Demera right at home. She was so excited for this food experience since she has never has Ethiopian food. Elijah exceeded her expectations with the quality of service he provided and the food sent her home to the ancestors! I love this place and now have another patron forever in my friend!
Love trying interesting authentic cuisines from other countries. Great place!
We had a lovely time. The food was delicious and the servers were great.
A unique dining experience. The staff are so friendly and helpful.
Great food and atmosphere! We tried a sampler of three vegetarian and three meats and all of it was amazing.
Staff was great!! Food was good. Nice place for family dining.
Amazing experience, it was my first time having Ethiopian food and the manager was so welcoming and helpful and the food was delicious! Will definitely be returning!
The food was spicy and delicious. Very authentic cuisine.
Have come to this restaurant 100 times and prolly will come 100 more!
The food was great, the staff was friendly. During our meal the wind outside got to dangerous levels and one of the windows blew open; staff members immediately held the window closed and went above and beyond to dry the floors and make things safe again.
Fantastic food and service. I cannot recommend Demera highly enough. The beets were a family favorite.
The food at Demera is AMAZING, and the ambiance and service is also sublime.
The perfect place to meet old friends and share in a fantastic meal.
Such a great meal, and experience
Amazing vegetarian/vegan meal. Great service!
Delicious food. Hostess was nice. Restaurant setting was okay.
Food was awesome. Just the injerra were too sour which should not have been.
Wonderful, wonderful dining experience! This was our first visit to the restaurant and we had the best time. All of our dishes were absolutely delicious, the atmosphere was lovely, and the service was wonderful. We had a great time and can't wait to go back!
Love this place. Food, service, happy faces every time I go. Never disappoints!
We have been to Demera before and I was really looking forward to their food as it is delicious. We waited over an hour for our entrees and no one checked on us. We only decided to ask our server about our food when the diners who came in twenty minutes after us received their entrees.
Turns out the server just never put the food in or even recorded it. Another person (maybe manager) came over and apologized, blamed it on the server being new or their system or something and had to ask us what we ordered. At that point we decided to close our checks and just eat elsewhere.
They did comp what we did have - drinks and an app, but I was really disappointed. Our original server just never checked on us or apologized after the fact.
Not sure I’ll be back after this.
An absolute favorite of mine in the whole city of Chicago. Some of the best food you will ever eat!!!
Everything is delicious. So good to be back! The split yellow peas are probably my favorite. Those and the sambussas.
A fantastic place with consistently delicious food. I’ve dined here over the years and will continue to bring friends and family here. Vibes are great, location is wonderful for people watching. Day or night, it has a wonderful ambiance
Outstanding food in a vibrant and energetic space.
This restaurant lives up to the hype! Delicious food, easy location, excellent service. Looking forward to dining there again
Food was great, honey wine was delicious, staff was very friendly. It was a little busier than expected and the tables were a bit closer than I would've liked since I'm still hesitant to dine in due to COVID, but the staff were all wearing masks and used gloves, of which I was very appreciative.
Excellent food and super friendly service. One of our favorites.
Best Ethiopian food I’ve ever eaten & best food in general I’ve eaten in a while. Amazing!
Delicious food and fantastic atmosphere! Definitely will be back
Brought in a friend for a first time experience. He really enjoyed it.
Food was outstanding. Fast service, excellent drink menu. Highly recommend.
My husband and I went for dinner on our anniversary. The food was delicious! Great flavors and spices. We had never had Ethiopian food before and were very happy with our meal. The manager had a tiramisu sent to our table which is made in house and it was perfect. It was like ice cream cake and not too sweet. The coffee was spiced also, very hot and strong like espresso. Highly recommended!
I love Demera! Most importantly, the food is outta sight delicious. The African beer goes well with it. It’s fun to gather up some food in the injera bread and and eat without utensils. I also like the art and took photos of it before we left. The host and waitpeople are gracious and efficient. What more can you ask? Eat there!
