Absolutely delicious. We had eggplant, tsatziki, grilled octopus, fig and prosciutto flatbread and a gyro platter. All of it was wonderful.

Was great until the entrees arrived. My wife and I wanted to try something new and since we haven’t been to a Greek restaurant since we moved here in 2021 we decided to try Apollonia. We had reservations for 5:30 and arrived at 5:15 and...were seated right away. Elba was our server and came and took our drink orders. My wife got two Pinot Grigio and since I don’t drink I was about to order sparkling water but asked about their NA Beer. They have Stella Artois a Belgium NA and it was very good. Bread is served and it was good but we order the Saganaki and it came with pita bread as well. The Saganaki as you would expect is served table side in its blaze of glory. It was very good as well. I had ordered a Greek Salad and it was very good. The feta was finely crumbled, the vegetables accompanying the greens were all nice and crisp it really was a good salad. My wife ordered the grilled bone-in pork chop and I ordered the Spinach Artichoke Chicken. So our complaint about the entrees is that although they were not delicious in floor and accompaniments, the meat was overdone and dry. Had this not happened this review would be a 5-Star. Again, everything was stellar, service, flavors portions, etc. But the meat, which anyone who has ever watched any of the cooking competition shows on TV understands, is the star. The star failed to show up this night. I still recommend the restaurant as this was our first time visiting I hope this is just a one off.More

Tall guy waiter with beard was doused with perfume that was horrible!! Manager please, don't have your staff wear heavy perfume. 15% of the population reacts negatively to it. Please!! The waitpersons are generally excellent. Service was low because there were many customers. The food...was not quite up to par this time but I still recommend this place.More

Second time here. Meze Platter with gyro meat, chicken skewers, hummus, beats, olives and more is huge and great. Grilled octopus is also stellar. Chicken wraps on wheat wraps looks awesome also. Bowl of seafood chowder was not full of stock but not too salty....Great service also. It is a little hard to find. Next to Guitar Center.More

This restaurant adds unexpected charges to your bill. We ordered take out and were surprised by an added 10% “ Take Out Charge” added to the bill. This charge is not listed on the menu or website. They just decided to add it. Not only...that, but they hit our order wrongMore

I’ve eaten here three times and all three meals were excellent. The service was top-notch also. The free bread and tapenade and herb butter at the start of the meal is something I look forward to. The steak frites was probably my favorite meal but...all meals were delicious.More

One of the worst experiences ever: Got there on 8/1/2023 after shopping at the UTC mall after checking service hours (Till 9 p.m.), arriving well in time were denied service, quote „a slow day, we closed early“ while people sitting at the bar. Manager hiding...behind his people did not show up. STRONGLY advise to look for great service alternative just 5 min walking across the parking lot !More

My friend and I dined at Apollonia by UTC last night. After we were seated, it took almost 15 minutes for our server to stop by to take our drink order and the restaurant was not busy. We also ordered the three dips appetizer with...hummus, spicy feta and tzatziki (which was delicious and that is why my review has 2 stars instead of 1). I ordered the Greek Salad and my friend ordered the Sea Bass. We shared our entrees and both agreed Sea Bass doesn’t taste like what we were eating. Also, the Greek Salad tasted like a bagged salad that you can buy in any grocery store. When we were finally able to flag down the server again, we let her know that we were not happy with the meal. She said she may have entered the fish order wrong and she could give us a discount on our bill. We didn’t want a discount though. We just wanted a nice meal like we were accustomed to from Apollonia. The Manager stopped by as we were paying our bill. She didn’t offer anything except an apology. We told her we won’t be back and still left a 20% tip on the $$$ bill. (And the server could have made an even better tip if she ever came back and asked if we wanted more drinks) It makes me so sad as I have enjoyed dinning at Apollonia since 2017. But now it is just a dirty restaurant with slow service and mediocre food. And I won’t be back, ever.More

I would have rated food 5/5 and service 2 or 3/5 so I averaged it out. Food always great and fresh with generous portions. Service was very slow, dirty plates piled up on our table between courses and we were rushed through the meal with...the main courses arriving 10 min after the appetizers. Server only came to the table 4x and we called her over two of the four times.More

Very satisfied with all aspects of this lunch. Hostess was kind. My waitress was absolutely above and beyond on service. I overheard other tables requests and desires that I personally thought where outlandish but their server kept absolutely composter and kindness with a smile. In...a day where customer service is lacking in some business I was blown away by the overall experience today. Thank you all for your kindness, amazing service, delicious food. I will continue to be a satisfied customer 👍More

I love this restaurant. The food and drinks are so good, I can’t give less than 5 stars. But this visit service was poor and wanted to note for management. The server was abrasive, didn’t get a to go order correct which we didn’t notice...until we got home, turned the to go container on its side to put in a bag in front of us thus tossing all of the food in it, etc. It was just overall poor service. The blackberry sangria, flaming cheese and lamb shank were as good as ever though. Will certainly be back for the food.More

Restaurant is lovely. The waitstaff were amazing, the food just fantastic. Everything we had from appetizers to dessert was prepared perfectly and served beautifully. Can’t say enough, we will return for sure. The outside patio was great, too. The prices were so reasonable, too.
