About the restaurant
Demitri’s Taverna offers authentic Greek food in an atmosphere filled with laughter and positive energy. Sit out on the patio and people watch while enjoying a special chargrilled lamb burger on sourdough bun served with arugula, tomatoes, baked red onions and feta cheese. Heat lamps make the patio enjoyable year round. Choose to stay indoors and dine on the charbroiled breast of chicken gyro pasta dish or the chicken and sausage Mediterranean pasta served with a house Mediterranean salsa. Demitri’s Taverna has several appetizers that can be enjoyed before a meal or with drinks like the flamed saganaki, yaiyai’s sloppy fries or the baked feta garlic bread topped with melted parmesan. Finish the meal at Demitri’s Taverna with an authentic dessert such as the pikilia epthorpia, kataifi pastry roll or the traditional Greek yogurt served with caramelized nuts covered in Greek honey.

This is a nice place with helpful employees. However, we visited on Valentine's Day and the menu was different from the online one. The lemon soup was very good. Good, but not outstanding. May try once more.

About the restaurant
For centuries, a taverna has been a neighborhood gathering place where friends can meet to eat, drink and enjoy life. Taverna co-founders Thanasis Pashalidis and Hakan Bala were raised with a shared ethical compass, which the Greeks call "philotimo" or "love of honor". Family and friends are their ingredients of life, and they believe that nutrition, happiness and health are all directly correlated. Both partners have been culturally influenced by the remedies of the old world and incorporate them into the lifestyle of Taverna. Both have an "ethos" that drives them and inspires others to live fully, which they consider the flavor of life's success. They understand that life is to be enjoyed and that time is of the essence. They are aware that every day is a gift.

Taverna has been created to make people happy and feel alive.

Really delicious, high quality food, good-sized portions. It was loud in there with the music & the people because the acoustics aren’t good in that space (same with the last restaurant, too).

Well done and always look forward to eating there. The wine selection is outstanding and as usual the steaks always come out piping hot and cook to temperature.

About the restaurant
Ikaros Greek Restaurant brings traditional cuisine straight from the island of Ikaria. This family style eatery features fresh menu items that are made daily from scratch. The combination of this dedication to delicious Greek food and the cozy interior are two of the main reasons Ikaros Greek Restaurant is so beloved in Oakland. At Ikaros Greek Restaurant, the Oktopodi Sti Skara comes highly recommended; it’s octopus cooked over the grill and served chilled with a splash of balsamic vinaigrette. There are also more casual offerings like the chicken gyro sandwich, the lamb souvlakia, pork souvlakia and a bifteki platter featuring ground meats, steak fries and more.
