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

Atmosphere is great , though the food is ok for a wanna be Greek resturant. Maybe i judging too hard having lived in Greece for a coule of years.

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.

Fun place. Greek dancing and live music in location in center of downtown St Pete. Food is more than ample but "blows hot and cold", good one night, not as fresh another. Have had very good meals and below average food there. Perhaps it depends on who's cooking and if they are using two day old fish. Many better, more... More

I used to go there at least once a week. I haven't been back since they charged my credit card twice. Once for the bill without the tip and once with the tip. I called three times. Each time they took my info from the receipt and said the new GM would call me back. It's a good thing I... More
