There is not enough room for me to gush about this restaurant. We go there EVERY time we are in Tarpon Springs and we always bring our friends and family when they are in town. They will even hold your leftovers (you will have leftovers)...while you explore the Sponge Docs.More

Limited handicap parking so we had to pay to park. Once in we were not allowed to get wine or an appetizer until the entire party arrived. Women’s restroom needed cleaning. My chicken was almost too tough to cut with a knife. Asked about a...nut allergy and was dismember with an answer of nope.More

We had dinner at Dimitri's last night. (3 of us) and my first impression was that the server seemed a little impatient and not very welcoming. He was a tall, thin older gentleman. The food served to two of us was fine. My other friend...ordered a chicken sandwich. As soon as she took her first bite, she said this chicken tastes weird. Her main concern was the texture of it being rather spongy. Unfortunately, our server never came back to our table and asked if everything was okay. She insisted we try it to see if we agreed. Two of us took a single bite of just the chicken on her sandwich and we both just looked strangely at each other because the chicken was truly a bizarre texture and didn't even taste very much like chicken. I also found it to be a little gritty. Anyway, when our server came back at the end our our dinner, I mentioned that my friend didn't eat her sandwich because the chicken was not good. I even explained that we all took a little bite and it was a weird texture and tasted bad. He looked at me, didn't say a word, came back with our final check and walked away. None of us could believe that he would not ever respond to what I said. Never said a word to my friend who didn't eat her chicken either. I found his non-response to be almost as bizarre as the chicken. Although I found my dinner to be just fine, I would not visit this restaurant again mostly because the waiter's failure to even discuss our complaint.More

Was there for lunch. Had a salad which was okay, ordered a gyro which was dry. Would not recommend, I think there are better alternatives in the area

Maybe Tarpon Springs is just not popular, the village seemed like a ghost town when we visited, on a Thursday evening. Picked this restaurant due to waterfront location- that said it’s surroundings and curb appeal left much to be desired. Saganaki was hard & served...with bread (asked for pita and ok, there’s a charge, but would like pita)… they forgot to bring it. Spanakopita large but not much filling. Salads just ehhh… dressing weak. $2.50 per grilled shrimp and they were quite small & not worth such steep add-on. Entry/ kitchen adjacent to (old dirty) bathroom. Saddened me after driving all this way for some authentic, delicious Greek food. Made me appreciate the many options in my hometown Greektown.More

We have been here numerous times before. Todays experience was not good. Service was not good, I ordered a steak and it was very small as no ounces of steak on the menu. My baked potato was over cooked and almost charred. My spouse had...a Hamburger and it was overcooked . The menu has changed, I loved their prime rib sandwich and it is off the menu and was told it was to much work. The facility itself needs a good cleaning . We will not be returning.More

We were a party of 4 that ate here on a Sunday. We had an issue with our order. Small issue and they fixed it quickly. My issue is when the bill came they put on a 20% gratuity without letting us know. They must...have assumed we were not going to tip because of of the meal mix up. I was very very disappointed in this action. We would never stiff a server for an accident. But we not will not be returning because of them adding a tip for themselves.More

Mediterranean pasta was delicious! Service was excellent. Wine recommendation was very good. This was our first visit to Tarpon Springs and we wanted to eat somewhere on the water so we chose Dimitris. Great choice. We will return the next time we’re in Florida.

The menu is filled with Greek specialties. We had to quiz our server to learn about all the delicious choices we had available. Unfortunately, we weren't super hungry because as we saw nearby tables getting their food, each dish looked amazing. The melitzanosalta (eggplant) appetizer...was wonderful with the fresh toasted pita. And the gyro was a very generous size. They kept us supplied with our beverages and the food came within minutes - hot and fresh. There is a beautiful view of the water. I would go back - just to try some of the other dishes.More

Promised a table in 10 minutes. Waited at the bar for 40 mins. Finally we just ate at the bar. The service at the bar was pretty good. Appetizers were good.. spanikopeda and feta with olives. We got grouper @ $21 per. We also got...3 gyros @ $9.. but the gyros did not have enough Tziki sauce so we asked for more... we did not expect to get charged another $3 for sauce that normally comes on the sandwich.. portion of meat not impressive either. I guess we will try Hellas next time. Nice experience if you want to be on the water.More

The service was horrible, lots of roaches and they were pretty big. The servers killed the roaches right in front of us and act like it was normal. We didn’t get offered refills at all they only talk to us when it was time for...the check.More

I was looking for a light meal after a long day and Dimitri's didn't disappoint. Upon arrival I spotted a gorgeous salad at another table. Although I'm not a salad person I had to have a Greek cobb with white fish and it was phenomenal....The service was outstanding--very attentive and checked in frequently to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. My dining companions had chicken souvlaki and grouper, respectively, and loved their meals. Oh, and the view--do not forget the view! Great place to relax in Tarpon Springs. Highly recommend.More

The food was not very good quality, I’d say below average compared to other Greek Restaurant's I’ve dined. On top of that, we were given dirty utensils.
