Reviews for Acropolis Diner

Stopped in at the end of this past May. I like to try different diners when I'm in new areas. After driving past a couple in New Haven earlier one Sunday morning only to find them with lines outside the door, I looked up nearby places and found Acropolis in Hamden. I went inside and was given a seat at a counter in the back that happens to face a takeout service area and the doors to the kitchen. This was not a good seat for this reason: the staff loudly complained, argued full review
So my girlfriend and I ordered from here the other day, I had been here multiple times and assured her that it would be good. She had ordered the ravioli and I ordered the open turkey sandwich and needless to say, what went from a bad day, turned into a worse one. Her ravioli had a strange rancid flavor to it and my potatoes had a very strong vinegary taste. Not to mention the next day we BOTH got stomach sick and diarrhea.Very disappointed, we will not be ordering anytime full review

Food is good but service leaves a bit to be desired, especially at peak times. Waitress appeared a bit overwhelmed. Had to ask for ketchup 3x (finally got up and procured it from the counter). May not be fair to blame waitress as there could be staffing issues. Detracts from the experience nonetheless
