I am visiting my daughter and son-in-law and they wanted something different, thus we came here. First the red pepper humus is Awesome, try it. He had the rigatoni bolonaise and loves it. He said it has a slight kick. She has the falafel and you d it to be as delicious as any other. I had the moussaka and... More

This is a great spot for all occasions. Wonderful brunch and friendly staff. They have a great bar selection. Food is reasonably priced and it has great people watching right on Elmwood avenue.

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

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.

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
