    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.

    Acropolis Greek Taverna - Ybor CityResponded on September 7, 2022Hi Yogalover, we're sorry to hear about the plate incident at our restaurant - that definitely sounds like it spoiled the evening a bit. We're glad you enjoyed the food aside from the lemon soup, and we'll be sure to take your feedback into consideration in the future. Thanks for writing this review, and we hope you'll give us another chance next time you're in the area!

    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

    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. If you would, please give our management team a call (813)242-4545 so we can rectify the problems & make things right with you. Again, thank you for this feedback as it helps us take care of the issues that unfortunately pop up from time to time.

    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!
