    We walked in an got seated right away . Took a while for a server to acknowledge that we were there , I don't think anyone was told to wait on our table . We finally were offered Drinks. Our server seemed like he was new and flustered . We ordered appetizers and food was served cold and sloppy . No flavor , even though on the menu it indicates homemade . It tasted like it was fresh of a jar or can of baba ganoush . gyros were lacking proper tatiziz sauce. It was glob of sour cream with no flavor, no garlic . Lamb chops were not seasoned at all and barely warm. 5 of us were served our entrees but we had to wait another 10 mins for my daughters pizza . Everything seemed off . Even the kids didn't like the food . We came to the restaurant for some music which was playing when we first walked in but then turned off . Overall I wouldn't waste my time or money. Staff seems miserable and had no sense of direction, our waiter was trying hard but he had tables on opposite sides of the restaurant so it made it difficult for him to do his job. We still tipped him accordingly but the food was awful . I ordered a side of Greek potatoes and the edges were black not from being crispy but from being bad potatoes or left out to long . No lemon flavor whatsoever, we asked for lemons wedges to flavor the food . Not sure why we even packed it up our left overs since we didn't eat much . Didn't take any pictures because it wasn't worth it .

    Acropolis Greek Taverna - Ybor CityResponded on July 1, 2022Thank you so much Virginia for taking the time to let us know about this. This is certainly not the experience we want any of our guests to have. We'd love to learn more about your visit so we can identify staff to help and processes to be fixed.

    This was the best Greek restaurant that my wife and I have ever been to. The food is fantastic, the service is impeccable, and the drinks were excellent. We drove in from Orlando, FL (2 hour drive) and we will do it again as this restaurant is worth it. Ken the manager was on top of all the operations at the restaurant and made sure that we were happy. I cannot wit to go back.

    The filet kabobs were good. Salad was great - loved the dressing. Not sure what they put in the potato salad I ordered but it was inedible. Tried my daughter's "Greek potatoes," they were kinda bland.

    Another great evening at Ybor Acropolis. My only complaint would be the removal of ZESTO sauce from the menu. It was something unique at Acropolis and the replacement is like any dip/sauce at any chain restaurant.

    They were surprised that there was a reservation made. The food was over cooked and dry. The drinks, Sangrias white and red were not really made with wine but some awful mix and tasted like food coloring. The server was the only one trying to actually make this experience pleasant but the bad food and bad drinks really soured it.

    I had a great meal here. After my poor food experience with “Florida’s Oldest Restaurant” down the street, I was debating about going to dinner at all. But I had walked by this restaurant the day before and had seen a patron with a whole, grilled fish on their plate. It looked delicious. I had to come back. I ordered the grilled snapper and it was really good. The food was fresh and cooked perfectly. I was not disappointed!

    We came here for Mothers Day with a reservation for 10:30pm and we had to haggle with the door man to let us in and serve us because they wanted to start closing. I will say our server was very sweet but I would recommend they change their reservation hours if they don’t want to serve people.

    Took my wife here for her birthday and invited some friends. The ambiance is casual and rather loud, not the place for a quiet romantic dinner. However the whole experience was great fun! The food is great, the service very attentive and the dance performed by the servers every now and then is a joy to watch. In all it was a needed break after all this time in isolation. The place tends to fill up so advanced reservations is a good idea.
