I recently had the pleasure of eating at Apollonia. The food is fresh and well presented. The quality is outstanding. I had the artichoke chicken and it was delicious. The chicken was moist and tender and the lemon sauce was just the right amount of...More

sigh. Hello my Trip Advisors. Listen, I'm going to warn you now: do not dine at this restaurant until the owners/managers get a handle on their "professional" staff. I will start from the beginning with my so called reservations. I call 4 days in advance...More

We can handle an over priced place but the noise was unbearable. Seriously $16 for a small salad with Greek Meat. Service was slow. Oh yeah and did I say it was noisy?

Okay but not great food, service was pretty bad and they served the red wine cold 😳 Cute that they throw napkins in the air when they perform but they should clean them up every once in awhile! Baklava Cheesecake was really good.

Just wanted to let you know that it sounds like you are referring to Acropolis and not our restaurant, Apollonia Grill, as we don't throw napkins. We'd love for you to come dine with us at 8235 Cooper Creek Blvd., right off University!

We have listened to music on several nights. It starts later in the evening, but it is a great duo and acoustics are as good as the food!
