Dimitri’s Restaurant Review – 19274 Country Rd 2 – 613 931 1919 – Summerstown Ontario

CFN – I love Lamb; especially when it’s done well and for some reason Greek food seems to take Lamb to special heights I’ve rarely seen matched.

Coming back from Valleyfield last week my dining companion suggested Dimitri’s Restaurant in Summerstown Ontario.   Mostly known as a pretty village along scenic Highway 2 and the St. Lawrence River that boasts one of the largest patios in the region; Dimitri’s features some very fresh and well prepared authentic Greek cuisine.

I also love seafood.    And really well seasoned grilled Octopus as my appetizer!   What I like about the menu at Dimitri’s is that the appetizers are priced well enough that they encouraged me to try a few more than I normally would and I was not disappointed.

I sampled a lot of dishes with interesting flavours, but again it was the freshness and quality that stood out.

The service was amazing that night in spite of not having a reservation.

Dimitri himself found us a little table and helped suggest what to try while his delightful wife mixed a drink for us to enjoy with our meal.

My dining companion in fact was not partial to Lamb, but she herself admitted it was excellent!

We finished our meal with a shared Baklava with chocolate over it that was prepared with a lot of love and surprised that our feast for two including drinks was still under $75!

Dimitri’s is open Thursday to Sunday in the Winter and serve Breakfast on weekends.   Besides the traditional Greek cuisine they also offer most restaurant faves from Pizza to Poutine.

You can visit them at 19274 County Road 2 in Summerstown, Ontario – K0C 2E0 for those of you using a GPS!

Or you can call them for reservations at 613 931 1919

  1. Thanks for the review.. I have been wondering how this place was.. coming from Montreal area am used to good food… I too am a lover of lamb.. well done that is.. thanks again

  2. waitstaff is the worst! went when absolutly no one was in the reataurant 4pm thurs asked to sit at a particular table then was told if a big group were to come in we would be asked to move? , then we were told that the table we were at was reserved? and then moved us to a table literally 2 feet away, we were astonished at this very unprofesional behaviour…if the front end acts this way then the back must be even worse…we all got up and left and went to a real restaurant aviod this craphole at all cost5s

  3. Dear norbert;
    Your party of 3 was accomodated at a table for 8 on the proviso that you would need to move if it became necesssry. If we had know that your ego was that BIG we would not have mentioned it. We value you all of our customers very much and we are sorry that we will never have you grace our halls again here at Dimitri’s…….ever.

  4. So good, I went to the restaurant with my husband and a second time with a colleague and everybody was impressed (Ispeak french so forgive my mistakes in written english…)
    The staff was so nice, the food very good, the prices ok too and the view, the terrace on the St-Lawrence, the decoration, everything is nice, beautiful and good!

    Thank you, it’s so great to have a place like this in the area!

  5. I enjoyed a great meal a few weeks ago with my hubbie.
    The server was excellent & we even had the pleasure of meeting the owners, who bye the bye were very nice.
    It was a windy, cool day, so we sat inside.Atmosphere was terrific & I loved the greek music …
    We plan to go back this w/e & hope to sit outside.

    Yes, hopefully they’ll advertise on CFN again soon.

    I told the owners we choose their restaurant bc of their AD on CFN….

    Thanks English Lassie.

  9. This restaurant is a five star dinning in my book….the food is really really good, the service was friendly and the terrace was awesome….I went earlier to get the road to get there by boat, the owner (wife) came out to help me and later that day we went to eat with some friends by boat….the road to get there by boat is very nice…..we got some help to park as well….I’ve been dreaming of those calmar….so tasty….we will go back very soon, if the nice weather can come back…..

  10. Absolutely awesome place!

    Went with my spouse last week. Great service, great people. Such a nice looking place too!

    It was just a bit too windy to enjoy the patio but we can fix that next time we go.

    I can only imagine how awesome that patio looks at night.

    They definitely made our list!!

  11. Found out about your restaurant thru a new neighbor. I live in Brockville ON and the drive (about 1hr/20 mins) was well worth it.. Enjoyed it so much that I invited some friends ( who are in from Calgary) to join me there for lunch next week. Had FISH the last time but am going for the ARNI this time.


  12. in response to jack….you are completely wrong about what transpired the table in question was a table for 6 (well it had 6 chairs) and we were waiting for my another member who was running a bit late …so a table for 6 with 4 people is out of the question? and to berate me as having a big ego why? … we were told yes to the table and then your head waitress snickered and said its reserved all the while laughing at us and you sir are as insulting and unprofessional as the pathetic staff and by the way there was nobody in the restaurant at all!!! and on top of it all we were with my 86 yr old mother who had trouble enough getting in and then out of your establishment keep up this bad attitude and you will be out of business shortly

  13. You NEVER seat someone and then on the provision if a bigger group comes in you will have to move..VERY UNPROFESSIONAL !! The river view is beautiful but the restaurant is small and cramped..Food is ok but We wouldn’t go back. Maybe the restaurant should expand to downstairs too.

  14. Been a regular since they re-opened. Always great food & service. Worth the ride to get there.

  15. I’ve been going there on a regular basis since Dimitri’s Opened..The place is beautiful, love how they kept the lovely décor, clean, love the décor!!! The food is great!!! Service is absolutety awesome, which keeps me going back..Great smiles!!Always look forward to my visits!!
