Deplorable Service!. My husband and I are regulars at this no frills neighborhood greek restaurant w/reliable food. Lately, the service has been horrible. On a recent Saturday night our server was completely clueless, screwed up our order and kept us waiting for food that she did not put into the kitchen. The manager, a nice guy, recognized we were regulars and apologized. Recently, our server told us that he could not cancel our order. My husband was full and could not eat the entree. The server argued w/us and would not take the entree off the menu. After we told him we were not going to pay, he conceded. This place has decent food, but really needs to work on training it's servers.
Horrifyingly Rude Service. I have been going to Dmitri's at 3rd and Catherine religiously for the past ten years. I have never had a bad meal or a rude server....until last night. A friend and I had put both of our names in without knowing until a while after we were waiting. When the gruff, manish, hostess sat us, I told her I had a bottle being held under my name. With the look she gave me, you would have thought I had murdered her mother! She had the gall to treat the four of us like second rate citizens the entire rest of the night, even after WE tried to apologize. I feel sorry for her boyfriend (or maybe girlfriend). I don't know who the hell she thought she was, but her behavior was SHOCKING and totally unacceptable. I never thought I would have a bad thing to say about Dmitri's, but I will think twice before I ever go back. There's other great seafood in the city. That girl needs a talkin' to.
Terrible terrible service. While the food was decent, the service was terrible. We walked in and no one took our name for at least five minutes. When they did take our name they asked if our party was there and I said no they were parking. We were then seated. After being seated, another woman came over and literally began to yell at us for sitting down before our party was there and lying about our party being there. I then explained what happened and she insisted that I had lied before even listening to what I said or noticing the fact that my foot was in a cast. I would have left however my foot is injured and casted, which is probably why we were seated before our party was there in the first place. We then waited 20 minutes to even order drinks. The manager was apologetic however the evening was already ruined. And the food was just mediocre. I was quite disappointed with the overall experience and would not recommend going there.
Great place for fresh flavors, nice prices, neighborhood.
Their avocado grapefruit salad with almonds is wonderful, and they serve wine filled to the brim in cute short glasses. It makes the place feel like a family place, but a nice place at that.
The flavors are so fresh, almost japanese-style, so you can really taste the flavors of the food. Their house wine is also very flavorful, and this is a great place to just dig in and order many dishes to share with friends, that's what we always do.
As for service, I only remember good times, eye contact and service with a heart.
Consistent. One of my local favorites that is consistent and never disappoints. The menu never changes and the service is outstanding. Try the hummus, and or the octopus... the best in town. The staff is friendly and hard working, & may as well be on roller skates because when the place is jumping it's really jumping! No worries though with servers like Jennifer you'll be waited on with kindness.
You're doing your taste buds a disservice if you don't go. The quintessential BYOB is Dmitri's. Amazing, fresh and simple cuisine is best complemented with good friends and good wine. Always crowded, so be prepared to make convo and share humus with the table next to you. Try the shrimp scampi as an app., calamari, and the cioppino.
consistent, delicious, excellent service. I have been to Dmitri's on more than a dozen occasions, and I can say that it is a place I never tire of. The food is simple, but always fresh and absolutely delicious. The service is attentive, and they genuinely ensure that their customers have an enjoyable experience. I am a local neighbor to the establishment, and it's a popular favorite among residents of Rittenhouse Square. I defnitely would not agree w/ the most recent negative write ups, and would suggest this place to anyone who truly enjoys good food and good service. If you are looking for a fru-fru place to be seen, head elsewhere, but Dimitri's is tried-and-true and has never let me down.
Pathetic ambience. This place could be graeat. You can get healthful food simply prepared. I love the taste of their plain broiled tilapia-- no frills, but good basic flavors. The service is pleasant and prompt. The problem is the amnience. The noise level is ridiculous and the patrons brind their small children and pets with total disregard for their fellow diners. The best thing they could do is calm the place down and appeal more to an adult, human clientelle.
my dog didnt even like it. service was bad. we were served our apps and entrees together. trader joes has better hummus, the mussels were bad. the rice pudding and the hoegaarden were good.
Bare-bones B.Y.O.B. still sets standards with fresh seafood and casual dining..
Inside, diners sit elbow-to-elbow, makng loud conversation while servers squeeze between tables, juggling several orders at a time. Olive oil and red-wine vinegar touch every fresh piece of seafood that goes on the grill. Lightly whipped, garlicky, hummus puts most others to shame. (Ask for extra grilled pita wedges.) Meaty bits of octopus swim alongside green olives in a simple sauce of olive oil and lemon juice. Expect a pleasant meal along with terse service.
