I took my mother-in-law and my young son to the Acropolis on Elmwood Avenue for dinner during our visit in mid-December 2016. We dined upstairs and received very welcoming and attentive service from the young girl waiting our table. I enjoyed a leafy salad with cranberries, pine nuts and included the baked falafel balls - absolutely delicious! Will definitely return... More

Our daughter took us to the restaurant and we had a wonderful time. The food was excellent. Great calamari and salads. Can't wait to go back!

I had both the combinator plate appetizer and falafel. Yummmm it was so good. The food was just incredible. However, one complaint about the restaurant: it smelled like dust. Like a dusty room or something. It didn't seem like an unclean restaurant, it looked fine, but the whole place just smelled kind of musty. I want to go back, but... More

Relatively small intimate place, small outside patio in summer. The food is excellent, the staff are great. I love the breakfasts here - whatever you get, it's really good.

2 of us waited for 40 minutes as "we do not have enough servers to wait on all the tables so that is why we are not seating you at an empty table'. Coffee was excellent. Food that was supposed to be hot was not; omlet and home fries. Long wait for same after ordering. Room was loud became even... More

Great place to go! Servers are awesome and it has a great atmosphere. The falafel was excellent and so was the smoked turkey sandwich! I also highly recommend the opa fries! Over all great place! Went twice within my 4 day buffalo stay!

We were starving and wanted to sit outside. Our service was quite slow, but our waitress was friendly when she did come by. The food was good enough to satisfy us on a very tired and hungry evening. However, I was hoping for more quality items (for example, the souvlaki dinner was pre-sliced meat you can purchase at the market...... More

OK, so after years of feeling "meh" about Acropolis and never wanting to go there to eat even though we live right down the street... I'm glad to say that they have COMPLETELY changed my mind! My husband loves the souvlaki here, so we came here on a Sunday evening last month for dinner. I was on a seafood pasta... More

There are lots of great places to get souvlaki and other Greek favorites, but Acropolis has the best falafel I've had in Buffalo - hands down. We eat here frequently, and the food is always consistently good. The patio is fun in the summer with excellent people watching provided by Elmwood Ave. If you are in the mood for a... More
