Tried going - drove thirty minutes out of the way only to find out they would not honor my reservation. Apparently they took too many off the street reservations during pride for their staff to accommodate. I wasted $15 for parking and was never called when a seat hypothetically opened. Worst experience and unprofessional behavior I’ve seen in recent memory - and I almost never leave reviews.

I was so disappointed this weekend by Acropolis! I had made a reservation for this location for 6 people and we were so excited to go, but when we got there they told us it would be at least an hour wait to be seated even though we had a reservation. They should have at least called to give us a heads up so we could have made the decision to not Uber over. We ended up leaving because we were too hungry to wait an hour to even be seated and good thing we did because they never even called me to tell me they were ready for us.

Where as the food is always excellent at acropolis, the service was completely horrible. It took 10 minutes to get a drink order another 10 minutes for them to actually make it out of us. By that point all the ice has melted. I had to go to the bar and get water, I had to take my appetizer plate to the water which took 35 minutes to come out. We had three different servers and even had to go to the bar to pay our bill. Probably the worst service that we have ever had anywhere. The bar manager was really nice But was not aware until we were about to leave, Despite our complaints. My husband he never complains about anything did most of the complaining which never happens. That’s how bad it was… We will never go back to that location.

We had a bad experience. I made reservation on Open table for our group of 9 nearly 2 hours before we arrived for an INDOOR table. We arrived on time, but were told they could only sit us outside. Not a big deal normally, however the table was within inches of the DJ blasting annoying electronic techno music like if we were at an EM festival in Mykonos. We tried moving the table a few inches away, but it was raining and the entire group sitting on the street side was getting wet. We picked our poison and made the best of it, as there was no where else in the area that would fit a large group last minute. Shame on you for over booking or giving our indoor tables away to other patrons. I asked for the manager twice, but no one except our waitress came out. She was actually the only positive to an extremely unpleasant experience. In closing, a reservation is meaningless here so don’t come here. Open table should remove them or suspend their ability accept any reservations.

I can't believe that I am only now finding this restaurant. It is fantastic Greek food! I appreciated the restaurant's willingness to help when there was a confusion with the reservation. The food is really good. The only downside is that it was really, really loud.

We made an outdoor reservation but they didn't save us a table. Hostess confirmed that we did make an outdoor reservation, but then the manager said Open Table doesn't tell them if the reservation is for indoor or outdoor. We reluctantly decided to sit indoors (only thing available), and our server wore her mask on her chin, and not over her mouth and nose. We will not be going back

Although the weather was great it was too loud to sit outside and too distracting with all the cars and outside noise going on. We couldn’t hear each other talk. Would rather sit indoors next time. This was our first experience there. The food was excellent and service was ok. I told the server I would pay and requested one check but she took our guest’s credit card instead which was very upsetting to me. It was her birthday dinner and she allowed her to pay for dinner. Why ask if you’re just going to take anyone’s credit card?!? Really annoying.

This reservation was for a friend’s birthday brunch and everything turned out amazing!! We were seated upstairs which gave us a nice view of the entire restaurant and 7th ave. Our server handled our large party with ease. No mix ups or mistakes. The highlight was definitely the wait staff singing happy birthday to one of my dearest friends. Looking forward to future brunches, lunches and dinners here.

A energetic place to dine: from the eclectic clientele smoking hukkahs, to the cars and motor cycles roaring up the road, to the passers by walking along - the whole thing was fascinating. Food and wine were good too and service was delightful. The only thing I would change is to slow down the arrival of food a little - let us enjoy the scene and our drinks a little longer before bringing food.

Appetizer was decent but felt very uncomfortable with the dining experience. Between the server leaning in too close snd the bartender wearing her mask around her neck, I didn’t feel enough was being done to protect anyone’s safety while dining. Would never return based on this experience.
