“Our favorite Greek restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

Last year, we had to brave an obstacle course of road construction to eat here, but it was worth it. This year, the road has been fixed, and Demetris is still wonderful -- decor designed to recreate the feel of Greek taverna, well-spaced tables, and excellent food. I usually get fish, which is excellent here. My husband appreciates that he has more vegetarian options than is usual -- the vegetarian moussaka is outstanding. The service is good without being obtrusive. The baklava meets the "Goldilocks standard" for us -- not too sticky and not too dry. (I sometimes have to squeeze lemon juice on baklava at places that serve the dry style, but this needed nothing.) Prices are moderate, servings are generous.

“Avoid Moussaka”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

First time, will be last time. Ordered the moussaka.
Very salty, otherwise tasteless. Save yourself the trouble. Service was ok. Mostly empty and older crowd early in the evening.

“Good variety, great stuffed grape leaves, but please change entry aroma”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

Our group had a good time at this restaurant. The owner was really friendly, food came quickly, and we were able to taste quite a variety of dishes. The salads were divided in advance which saganaki was impressively presented but too salty for most of us, moussaka was excellent, lamb also excellent, I wished the gyros came with pita and tomato instead of just tsatziki, dessert was baklava and walnut cake which were both fine. The zucchini and carrot saute tasted great but the potatoes were a bit oily. Waiter forgot to bring out wine and by the time he remembered we just canceled that order, but he was apologetic and our host could have reminded him earlier. To be honest, the only thing that I really didn't like was that when we came in the entryway smelled overpoweringly like cheap flowery bathroom cleaner; the bathrooms are next to the entry and I would suggest changing to a bathroom cleaner that doesn't leave an odor in the entryway, since that's the first impression people get of the restaurant and it's kind of an appetite suppressant.

“Remarkably good Greek dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

My three friends and I had an amazing dining experience at Demetri's in Deerfield, Illinois this evening. The food was superbly prepared with just the right blend of spices, cooked exactly right, with a lovely presentation on the plate.

I had one of the best soups I've ever eaten--chicken lemon. My entre was "Kotopoulous Demetri" chicken with chicken, feta cheese, and vegetables wrapped in philo. It came with sliced squash and potatoes. My friends had the combination plate and a mousaka dish. We all had baklava for dessert. My friends raved about their selections. I do not know how the taste and quality of the food could have been improved.

The waiter was very skilled and attentive. The food appeared, then the empty dishes disappeared at the right times.

This place would make someone indifferent to Greek food absolutely love it.

Food was great. I was dining alone on business. They made me feel right at home! I had the fish of the day and it was wonderful.
