    The four "specials" were excellent. Side dishes (especially the green bean in tomato sauce) extraordinary partners. Service by Glenda was quick and cordial; We really enjoyed ourselves in this checker-table clothed no frills "bistro". We will be back.

    Always very good food. This time I had stuffed zucchini. It's filled with ground meat and rice with a sauce similar to that used over grape leaves. Delicious! Waitstaff friendly and knowledgeable.

    The waiter gave us wonderful suggestions, walking us through the menu based on our preferences. Food was delicious, however the portion size was a bit much. Two people could split one appetizer and one entree and be perfectly filled so maybe reduce the portion sizes a tad.

    We tried this restaurant in Greektown. It was phenomenal, and the food and service were the best we've had in Baltimore. My 21 year old son has claimed this as his favorite restaurant. We already have plans to return.

    It was a rainy night, and we were the only, yes only, customers. Not surprisingly, it was quiet, and the service was excellent. More importantly, the food was good too. We started with Saganaki (flaming cheese) and then braised lamb, cooked as a casserole and served with orzo (not ouzo, but a rice-shaped pasta). We are partial to lamb and found it excellent. The portion was huge and so we shared it. The baklava was good (I took one home with me too) but I would prefer to have it made with the honey inside rather than poured over it. Above all, the price was reasonable.

    Authentic Greek food, prepared with love. Very good and so wasour waitress. Oly problem was the Open Table reservation on their end. Took about a week and several calls and emails to get the points. Need to work that out if they wish to have folks use Open Table for reservations.

    We are always welcomed so warmly into this Greektown restaurant by the owner. All the servers are professional with a real knowledge of the menu, and aren't hesitant to give recommendations. None of this "everything's good". Beth is especially helpful and sweet. The seafood pasta is excellent, with a large portion of calamari, shrimp and crabmeat. The chicken parm is also very tasty. We really like coming here.

    Though the food was very good. The waitress steered us away from sharing the sampler with three people saying it would not sufficiently feed that many. However, when we received it, we wholeheartedly disagreed. There was ample food for three. Also, when it came time to receive our bill (we had 18 people with us) it took the waiter about 25 minutes to calculate everyone's bill. We even grouped our party to 3-4 people on a bill. It was ridiculious having to wait that long to receive our final bill.

  • Our favorite Greek Restaurant
    Frederickfoodie
    Dined on 1/4/2014
    This is our favorite Greek restaurant in the Baltimore/DC area. The food is excellent and tastes homemade; portions are generous, and prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend the Lamb Giovetsi, grilled octopus, and stuffed grape leaves. We are serious "foodies" and consider this as one of our top10 favorite restaurants. We drive 50 minutes (one way) and it is worth every minute of it!

    Enjoyed a night out with my husband and parents at The Acropolis. We were huge Ikaros fans until their move. We were looking for a new favorite Greek restaurant and this fit the bill. Good service. Excellent food. They even gave a free dessert. Tasty and affordable with big portions.

    It had been years since I dined in any of Baltimore's fine Greek establishments and Acropolis did not let me down! Living in the city you're filled with choices of every ethnicity. The decor could use some updating but it still holds with the old-style Greek restaurants that I know and love around Baltimore. It's not trying to be something it isn't...it's a place to enjoy good food, friendly service and leave with a fully stomach. All of which we did. Our food was fast...the dolmathes almost too fast as they arrived before our drink order did! But everything was hot and fresh, including the bread. Baklava is not to be missed if you've got a sweet tooth.

    " Acropolis" is not a fancy place, just a Mom and Pop restaurant Family owned and operated with Good AUTHENTIC Greek Cooking. ACROPOLIS portions are generous and freshly prepared, plenty for you to take leftover home. You can't go wrong with that place!! the atmosphere is friendly and homy, Vasiliss our waiter, was attentive to our every need and request, the specific way we like our fish (broiled seasoned to perfection) calamari crispy and with lots of Lemons and the Octopus tender and meaty, AH! and the Crab cakes heavenly! compared to no other. I am really surprised that the place was not full? I definitely recommend this Restaurant for value, cleanness, and a wonderful service.

    I brought my party to Acropolis because there were a few vegetarians among us and Acropolis has a great selection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian choices. Everything was delicious: from the appetizers to the specialty "flaming cheese" to the moussakas and the Chicken Souvlaki platter. I plan to return on my next trip.

    2 couples, plus 3 kids. Service was great. Waitress talked us through the menu, specials and made great recommendations for the kids (lots of appetizers). Attentive without being pushy. Food was consistently good. Ambiance not as good as the old Ikaros, but on par with the new one. We'll be back.

    We have come here many times before & have loved the food. However this time my husband was very disappointed with the lamb giovetsi. It tasted good but it was a very small amount of lamb. It was mostly bones.I did enjoy my shrimp dish & the salads & spinach pie were delicious as usual.

    We got the Olympus sampler platter for two of us and oh my gosh, it could have fed 5 people. We ended up going home with multiple doggie bags. Everything on the plate was delicious. The real highlight of the meal was our server, Beth. She was so attentive, friendly, and fun. She even thanked US at the end of the meal for being such a pleasure to wait on. The chef/owner also stopped by the table to ask us how we enjoyed everything and that he would love to see us come back. It was so personal and I absolutely loved it!

    Good food in generous portions, friendly service and some nice Greek wines. The Olympia Platter for 2 ( if they have it) has to be one of the better deals around. We have ordered it several times and taken home enough for a huge meal the next day. You can pay to park across the street but if you ride around a couple blocks you can usually find a space.
