This is a great restaurant. This was our second visit and we will absolutely return again soon. Service was excellent, menu is excellent with plenty of reasonably priced options, reasonably priced drinks, and the belly dancer was great entertainment.

We had to asked the host for our server after we been seating for 20 mins. Our server was horrible and not friendly. I had to asked for the manager cause she wouldn’t bring us any water. The manager was the worse of all. Instead of coming to our table to bring us water, he made us wait for our server to bring it instead. No team work. Manager was super lazy!

This Greek restaurant was initially shocking to the senses but after getting used to it ended up being enjoyable. With cocktail napkins covering the floor after being tossed in the air (a certain tradition?) and Greek music blasting, my initial reaction was to run. But we gave it a chance and had a nice time. Food was excellent but it was so difficult to hear each other let alone the waitress, we just took chances on making food selections. Greek wine was really not to my liking but was the only option and ended up being adequate. Octopus appetizer was excellent as well as the hummus. Moussaka was outstanding and well worth the damage to my eardrums.

The food and atmosphere was very nice. We got seated right away and they where very accommodating even though some friends cancelled last minute so we had less people. The only problem was our waitress. I am not one to complain about service, know the business did it for 2 years. However, she was very unattentive. Even though the tables around us except one was empty. I actually had to get up 2 times to find where she was after waiting for quite some time. First time so we could order dessert, that came and went, second time to get our bill. She didn’t come back to find out if everything was ok, or if we needed anything after bringing our food. I love acropolis food and atmosphere, hence why I wanted to have a nice chill girls night. But was greatly disappointed by the service.

We go there often for the food, however it seems that the dress code is now very relaxed because there was a lady seating by the bar just wearing a t-shirt - no pants, just underwear for all to see and management didn't addressed.

When our group arrived, (14 people), we were greeted with a very pleasant hostess. Our waiter then came over to our table. Jose was very personable. He made sure our drink order was taken care of, then the appetizers, he went over the specials, and made sure we had plenty of (warm) bread. The meals were excellent, as well as the service.

Poor service. Very slow and the restaurant was not busy at all. Appetizers, salads, and entrees arrived at the same time and the wait staff shoved the plates around on the table to fit everything. Our dinners were cold by the time we finished our salads. Chicken was very dry. The Greek salads were great but that was about the only very pleasant part of the situation.

Acropolis is a wonderful place for good quality Greek food. We were seated upon arrival and the staff was welcoming and friendly. The lamb chops were cooked to order and had a delicious taste. My date got the shrimp Mykonos which was deliciously made. The kitchen did not delay with our food. Would definitely comeback!

We have enjoyed this restaurant in the past, however this recent visit was a disaster. Despite our reservation, they were not ready for our party. Service was horrible and food was only mediocre. When we complained we were told they were extremely understaffed and they were expecting a party of 30 (so our party of 9 suffered). Very poorly managed.
