Very high-quality great Greek food. I especially like the spreads and side dishes and I haven't had anything that I didn't like. My congregation has a family Shabbat at Demetries quite often and the family-style menu suits all.

We found ourselves up this way a month or so ago and saw this place from the street. Having moved here recently and not knowing "who is good and who is not", we thought that it looked inviting from the road and so we thought we'd give it a try. I have to first say that it impressed us just... More

They have wonderful food. Their lamb and skirt steak are wonderful as are the dolmades and gyros. They have a different braised lamb for lunch each day of the week. Tomato with Orzo was great. They are reasonably priced, a good place to go and talk and bring family.

I cannot say why I have not managed to come here before. I have been living in Deerfield for a long time and this is one place I have not frequented. I was there the other night with friends and had a most delightful time and dinner. I had lamb chops and they were superbly prepared. The lemon chicken soup... More

We had the Greek special Combination plate and Kotopoulo Demetrius. The portions were large and filling. The service was excellent, price reasonable. Would highly recommend if you enjoy Greek food.

I travel here in business frequently and this is my favorite dinner spot on the NW side of Chicago. Excellent service, fantastic Greek food, large menu.

I have been going here for years--since they opened in fact. We even had our son's high school graduation dinner here for 20+ people. Dined there this past Monday with a friend and it was an awful experience. Greek salad with bottled dressing--no oregano (really? Are you still a Greek restaurant?). Waitress who could've cared less. We ordered grilled octopus,... More

A group of 4 came here for dinner on a Friday night. We liked the casual, family-oriented atmosphere of the restaurant. The restaurant seems to be very authentic Greek; all of the staff who we interacted with were Greek. Our server was very pleasant and reasonably attentive. The meals come with either soup or salad. At our table, we had... More

We went for dinner on a Wednesday night. It wasn't busy. Ordered the Mediterranean Combo (Lamb and Chicken) Appetizer. I got Moussaka and my hubby ordered the Gyro. The wait staff was friendly, and knowledgeable. The food was wonderful. Our dinners came with a salad or soup option. I chose the lintel soup. It was good--thick like a stew. The... More
