Great appetizers and great dinner

The atmosphere at Acropolis is great. We went there on a Friday evening we made reservations but when we got there it seemed unnecessary, however that may have been due to a footrace taking place on Elmwood right as we got there. When the race ended the resturant filled up a bit. The best thing we... read more

My husband loves all Greek food. However, he said he would only rate this place a 2. I had regular chicken and my mom had shrimp spaghetti, we both said a 2. French fries are good. FYI, there are stairs to climb to get to the restaurant.

Thought I'd try the Moscow Mule from the Specialty Drinks list, but was sorely disappointed. The ginger beer was more like ginger ale and there was no lime juice (or flavor for that matter). In short, the drink tasted like a watered down ginger ale on the rocks. My advice to you: eat the food, which is decent, but if... More

I have been waiting to try this restaurant for quite sometime but it has always been incredibly busy. I finally decided to make an effort to arrive early one evening prior to a Bisons game. The restaurant is well situated in the Elmwood Village which is home to a thriving art and restaurant community. There is a limted amount of... More

The atmosphere is good, except I found the 5 tv screens in a small restaurant quite distracting( it gave a sports bar feel there). Food was good/okay. Service was very nice!

Excellent Greek food - fresh and yummy. Outdoor seating or open inside area. It was a beautiful day and very pleasant dining. Extensive draft beer selection.

The first time my husband and I ate here, the service was super slow, and the food was "ok". The second time we ate here, it was the same story. We wrote the place off for a couple of years. So many of my friends said that they have changed, that the place is AMAZING, and I should really give... More

I'm a big fan of this place for just about any meal of the day. The food portions are quite generous and delicious. They have an excellent local beer selection and an impressive cocktail list with something for everyone. My favorite item is probably the Keftedes Pita Wrap, it is awesome.

They have some items that are really good, like the fried squid, but most items are just ok. The bar gets a little loud but the seating upstairs is nice. When it's warmer out the balcony seems like a good spot to sit outside.
