    One of our entrees came out cold…like frozen cold. The server seemed stretched way too thin and/or very distracted.

    Ordered a reposado tequila, was served a blanco. The server agreed and replaced, not a big deal. Pastisio entree was room temp and grossly overcooked/reheated. Accompanying vegetables were the same. We sent those back to be reheated. Baclava dessert was ice cold! Restaurant was half full. Way too loud music playing.

    The restaurant made us wait over 30 minutes after our reservation time

    Acropolis Greek Taverna - Ybor CityResponded 7 days agoThank you for leaving us your feedback. We're terribly sorry about your experience over the weekend. Unfortunately, the cold weather presents a unique challenge when it comes to seating as we do have many tables outside and when cold weather arises, most have no desire to sit out in the cold. This is no excuse for us failing to plan accordingly, but weather-related challenges are isolated. If there is anything we can do to make up for your bad experience please let us know.

    Even being completely understaffed, our server, Greg was kind, he kept his sense of humor about him, and was eternally patient. The noise level was the only thing I had an issue with the music was very loud. And just due to having hard floors, the sound bounces around even more.

    All dishes came well seasoned. Octopus was a bit too soft for our taste but wasn’t mushy. The tomato sauce was outstanding! Greek salad was fresh and delicious. The Acropolis seafood over rice was out of this world! We haven’t had a seafood dish this good for a long time that we finished it before the appetizers. The desert was a nice finish for this memorable dinner on the Christmas Eve. Plus, the service was friendly and the ambiance was festive. Will definitely go back when we visit Tampa again.

    We were a party of 4 for lunch and the place was basically empty. I ordered a grilled veggie salad. The presentation was not appealing . The veggies looked and were soggy, drenched in a tasteless dressing. My husband ordered a gyro and it was not good. I have been to other locations and the food has always been fine. Maybe we hit the place on a bad day. Anyway, I’m not returning to this particular restaurant.

    Myself and two friends decided to eat at Acropolis because of how delicious the food looked on another occasion when I walked by the restaurant. Coming from NJ, it’s been very difficult finding a restaurant that serves delicious fried calamari. Well let me tell you, it was the best in Florida. Tender and fried until golden brown. Two of us ordered the lamb chops, here’s where things got funny. My friends chops came out thick and cooked to her liking. Mine on the other hand came out like they were run through a meat grinder. Thin and half missing. I couldn’t believe this was allowed to leave the kitchen. I called the waitress over who apologized and brought them back to the kitchen. She even sent the manager over who also apologized and made sure things were taken care of. When the dish came out (within a few minutes) it was perfect. The lamb was cooked to the temp I asked for and seasoned perfectly. They were served with delicious roasted potatoes. My other friend (her first time at a Greek restaurant) ordered the moussaka and loved it. Overall we had a great dinner and would definitely go back.

    Food was not bad. Noice level outside is pretty bad since you’re sitting along the curb. And the service was very good; terrific service. The #1 reason we won’t return is because we parked in the parking lot behind the building and got a $45 ticket. I’m not opposed to pay to park. But when the app associated with that parking lot only accepts “a full day” of parking at $25 instead of the typical hourly fee, we thought maybe it wasn’t working correctly and choose not to pay. Ybor wasn’t busy at 7pm and dinner and drinks took about 2 hours. Sorry Acropolis, spending $140 on appetizers, entres and drinks, we can no longer support you due to a $25 parking fee. What a shame for small businesses!

    Acropolis Greek Taverna - Ybor CityResponded on October 31, 2022Jeff, we're sorry to hear that you had a less than enjoyable experience at our restaurant. We appreciate your feedback and will definitely take it into consideration in order to improve our business. Thanks for taking the time to write this review!

    Great service and a fun atmosphere with the napkin tossing, wait staff dancing, belly dancer, and plate breaking. Unfortunately a plate shard hit my wife and made her nose bleed. Totally random but something to consider with small children. Food was great aside from the lemon soup (too clumpy). Tzatziki was delish, along with fried mushroom appetizer and mussels. Would definitely go again, even with the plate incident.

    Waiter was great never made us wait or ask for anything. He was very proactive the whole time. Wish I remembered his name. I sat inside by one of the corner windows facing the cross section street of 7th avenue and my appointment was at 7pm at the Ybor location. Wish I had more information to give instead of a vague description. Email me back if I can assist with more info. And of the course lovers the food I’ve been going there 21 years. Thanks again for a great place to eat and have fun while enjoying exceptional customer service. Best Regards Jonathan Vaello
