Authentic Greek food in a great downtown setting overlooking fountain and park

We love Demitri's and have been going there for years. Authentic food by a Greek chef-owner. Friendly staff, good prices, great location overlooking downtown Livermore if you sit outside.

Went with wife and shared a double bacon cheeseburger on brioche special with side salad. Salad dressing tasted homemade and burger was incredible. Plenty of food for two of us to share. Good service and great atmosphere. One of our favorites downtown. Food tastes less processed than other joints on 1st street.

Freindly, attentive staff were happy to adjust the gale force winds powering down on us from their many ceiling fans and quickly brought us a good looking but a little tough, plate of Calamari and some fried bread. The Moussaka was delicious and I'd order that again any day, but the accompanying veggies which looked beautifully cooked, were in fact... More

Gyros were fantastic. The atmosphere was not quite comfortable for dinner: it has more of a diner feeling to it. The beer selection was nearly nonexistent, with only a bottled beer selection.

Wonderful Greek food on beautiful First street in Livermore. Our go-to spot on a Friday night for a quick dinner and bottle of wine at the bar. Staff is friendly and owner is awesome. One of my favorite spots in Livermore.

I have eaten here several times as it is walking distance from my home. This not a big place, but is has a nice quaint feel to it. The food is very good and the service is consistently good. They have a full bar and flat screens behind the bar. They even have a nice outside patio area which is... More

We eat at Demitri's about 3-4 times a month. We always find the food to be good, and the service personable. It seems like the food is even better when Demitri himself is on the line. My go-to is the Chicken Souvlaki, and they often have very tempting specials. Can't go wrong here.

Excellent food. Excellent service. I've been here twice before events at Bankhead. Theater. It was too windy outside, and a bit noisy inside, but still very enjoyable. Good value.

Enjoyed a delicious Greek dinner and wine / beer while sitting at a lovely patio in downtown Livermore. Extensive menu, fresh food, knowledgeable server. Had the grape leaves to share as an app and took advantage of a fresh fish special - both delicious.
