I got the eggplant special and it was delicious. The hummus and pita appetizer was delicious also, disappointed they didn’t have the sun dried tomatoes for the Mediterranean hummus but was not disappointed with friendly service and staff!

We have never been disappointed at this location of Acropolis, or at the one in Metairie. The employees here are very involved and attentive to make our dining experience pleasurable. I had the best Bloody Mary there this past Sunday and we asked what they used. They take the Vodka they use and induce it with the same ingredients that they use to make them. It goes give the drink a very rich taste. We'll be back many more times.

Not sure why this place is not full when we go here? The food is excellent and authentic. The service is fantastic. The portions are large. And the drinks are also great. Maybe because our family likes Greek food more than others. We had brunch there on Sunday and we got the Champagne package, 3 different type of juices and fresh fruit for the glasses. We'll be back soon!!

Hosted grad dinner for 10. Waiter was fantastic. We started with the saganaki which was a bit theatrical. Food was flavorful. Several other parties, but quiet.

We always enjoy Acropoli on Freret. My husband had a wonderful flight of different Scotches. Enjoyed all of them. Payson was so helpful and really understood which type of scotches my husband would like. The food was fresh and fabulous. Server Charlotte was attentive. Loved the Greek music in the background too. It is a gem.
If you like greek food you won't be sorry. Athentic and delish.

The red Sangria is FABULOUS! Love the hummus and the Gyros!
Large portions are a signature.

Yummy! Will definitely go again. I like that they have cuisines of many of the Mediterranean countries...so Italian, Greek, and more. They did both very well.
loved the idea of wine selections in a "flight"

We had a nice brunch there last Sunday. The only problem we had was that they were out of one of the brunch menu items. Three of us wanted to order it too. But the food was good and the service was wonderful Good drinks and good prices. A real value for us in the future.

A very welcoming host and friendly waitress - super nice people! The service was a little slow, as the one waitress seemed to have all the tables. Food was not bad, but we thought a little bland, esp for New Orleans, and mine was not hot. Very good wine and beer selection.

Something is wrong with the place. Food was not available for many items. Salad dressing was from a bottle, drinks were not refilled and dessert was store bought but sold as freshly made that day. Love the location in Metairie. But this place has gone down. Maybe it’s Covid affected and will bounce back. But for now not my favorite.

Finally, Greek food Uptown. We have been dining here regularly since they opened and they do all the classics well while also offering some interesting specials. The space is attractive, big and airy. Very Covid safe and you can choose to sit outdoors. The staff is excellent and they offer some very creative wine, beer and cocktail specials. We enjoy Greek cuisine and wines and search it out when we travel. Now it is in our neighborhood so we are very pleased. They do weekend brunch items too!
