Try the KC Strip best steak for the money. My girlfriend and I went to this restaurant tonight and we got right in. The staff and our waitress Maria was awesome. She suggested the KC Strip, I like steak, and lets just say it was unbelievable. I ordered my steak Medium and it was freaking perfect. The flavor was amazing. My girl ordered the Seafood Fettuccine and she loved it. The bread and soup was great and the service was impecible. We had ice tea and the sweet sugar syrup they put in it was remarkable. For the money we spent, I will go back and back. I can not imagine a better place in downtown Nashville for the quality and price. I am a big fan of Demo's and I highly recommend it.
Great food for the price!. I think the comment below was written by a competitor. I'm from Alabama and many times my parents to Nashville they ask about going to Demos. The food is wonderful for the inexpensive price they charge. We've always been impressed with the servers too.
the worst food and service ever.
i went to Demos on the recommendation of the tour guide, it apparently had quite a reputation So i expected much. I could not have been more disappointed. We waited two hours for the abysmal, overcooked, over-season "food" (thats being generous). The service was slow and the entire staff i found discourteous and disinterested.
Post meal, my friend and I were actually physically ill and had to spend the rest of the evening in retching in agony in the hotel room.
If it were possible to give negative stars, I would!
Anyone giving this restaurant stars must be paid staff.
Good spaghetti, horrible steak, cheese dip surprise?. I appreciate the attempt at uniqueness with steak and spaghetti. They do one (spaghetti) rather well here. But they should probably stick with that. The steak here is one of the worst I've ever had. Three bites and I couldn't continue. However, the spaghetti got finished. The cheese dip whatever was also one of the more peculiar things I've eaten, or started to eat rather. Chopped tomatoes and cheese concotion with tortilla chips. Now maybe this is just the Texan in me coming out, but how in god's name can you advertise this as queso? It's almost blasphemy. Nashville definitely has much better restaurants in the Vanderbilt area, but this one did not get the mark. Good location though.
Consistently top service and food quality.. Have eaten here many times and found the same good food and service each time. Perhaps the best value in town. Menu has sufficient variety and food quality as well as service quality are excellent and a very resonable price.
Great sirloin steak!. We went to Demo's on a Monday night; after arriving in town. A friend had recommended this restaurant. We both ordered the sirloin steak and it did not disapoint. It was cooked to order, juicy and had a delicous marinade or seasoning on it. Our waiter was very attentive. We sat right away when we arrived. The bread was very good - either a parmesan or asiago cheese bread. The salad was average - but the homemade dressings were very good. Try the blue cheese. We were not impressed with the side dish of pasta - I ordered the browned butter and my friend had the meat sauce. We would go back here again - reasonable prices/reasonable food - and excellent steaks.
Skip it.....eat elsewhere and enjoy your meal.
While the service was adequate, the nicest thing I can say about the food is that it was better than starving.....if only marginally. The spinach dip was a horrible assemblage of soured garlic, olive oil and spinach which had been run through the microwave. The chicken soup was a tiny (thankfully) bowl-filling nightmare composed of overcooked chicken combined with undercooked rice in an over-salted broth. However, the most frightening part of the meal arrived in the form of a flavorless, steak which was still wearing marks from where the jockey had been striking it only a day earlier. The only saving grace for the chicken was its preparer (I refuse to use the word chef in this review) who had, in a supposed fit of guilt, attempted to cover it in a tomato based abomination which I'm sure is illegal in reputable Italian restaurants. However, the employees in the kitchen *did* succeed in baking the potato sufficiently......and after sampling the rest of their fare, I can only assume the potato was a fortuitous bit of luck.
I can't fault the servers as we were well cared for. Yet, I can find no redeeming attributes in any of the kitchen staff or their choice for food quality even *before* they began to violate the laws of culinary aesthetics. I would rate their abilities, on a scale, as being comparable to an understocked Shoney's which had chosen to staff their restaurant with ill-mannered employees from any one of the local temporary services.
Demo's.....skip it. You'll only be missing heartburn, headaches and disappointment.
DEMOS IS THE BEST. IF YOU STOP BY THIS PLACE YOU NEED TO TRY THE CHICKEN SOUP IT IS AWESOME IT TASTES REALLY GOOD. AND THE BREAD THEY BRING TO DIP IN YOUR SOUP IS REALLY REALLY GOOD. JUST TRY IT YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED.
Less than ordinary. I don't get it. Went only once for lunch. Very little interesting on the menu, ended up getting spaghetti, which was so sweet it was inedible. Very ordinary and less than most casual family dining places. Not reason for me to return.
Overrated. I have visited Demos' several times over the past few years, and they never fail to disappoint. Bland food, salads with iceberg lettuce...I still do not understand how this restaurant continues to get the ratings it does. There are far better options for Italian and steakhouses in Nashville.
