We stopped here for lunch after visiting a museum in St. Petersburg. We both ordered wraps. Mine was the Athenian wrap which was delicious. My wife ordered the Mediterranean wrap without onions. Since she ordered no onions, they also did not put the onion aioli on the wrap either. She substituted their homemade vinaigrette which was fine. The service was... More

Went here with a group a few weeks ago and enjoyed the atmosphere inside. My family is greek, so we can be picky about our dishes and several of us didn't like ours from what we are used to. I really liked my Souvlaki platter as did my father. You got a lot with it. My husband didn't like his... More

When you walk through the door you are greeted by the pungent smell of cheese. It almost makes you not want to sit down but my girlfriends and I were trying something different. Bad decision. The food made me ill and the only good thing was the belly dancers. I will not return to this place...they need to clean up... More

We went during Happy Hour and I asked for a Mojito, the server asked if I would like to try a coconut water Mojito....OMG! My favorite drink ever! This was my third visit and it have always loved anything I ordered. We all tasted each other's entries and each was as good as the other. There was live music and... More

This was our first meal at the Acropolis. We chose to eat inside and were seated upstairs. The atmosphere was lively and the staff friendly. Don't mind the napkins on the floor or the sound of breaking plates. It's all part of the place, along with the live music and the staff dancing. We started with the Appetizer Platter, which... More

Great Happy Hour, The Grilled Lamb chops were prepared perfectly and great taste along with the grilled vegetables. Service and background music made a perfect dinner out.

We decided on this place for lunch longing for Greek food. My salad was very fresh with a special dressing that I did not like-- just stick with the traditional Greek dressing. The appetizer plate was very good with pitas, domades, and 4 traditional dips (such as hummus) for the pitas. We shared a serving of moussaka. It was good... More

We found Acropolis to be a trendy spot on Central Ave with pretty good Greek/Middle Eastern offerings. Not the best I've ever had, but not the worst. The staff was super friendly and the decor was hip and sophisticated. We ended up choosing to sit outside though for the dog and people watching. Would definitely return.
