I think my problem with Acacia is that every time I'm there, it smells like cleaning supplies. Good to know it's clean, but not a very palatable odor! The food is decent and it's a great location with outdoor dining too. But I just can't...More

This restaurant never fails to impress! We were a party of 11, and from appetizers to dessert, the experience was great and the food superb. I had duck for my entree and it was wonderful. Terri who is the server, is warm, friendly and a...More

The new Fall 2017 menu is definitely worth trying. Attractively priced at $65 per person for a 5-course dinner, there are two options offered for each of the courses. The Chef successfully combined the autumn flavors and interesting ingredients to create a good dining experience...More

Last night, while checking-in, our Swarm app told us that we have been to Acacia 26 times, that is not counting times when we either forgot to 'check in' and the times preceding the wide use of apps. So, that and three reviews we left...More

Very good food, with great subtlety and delicacy of the entrees. Never had fried gnocchi before (starter), not completely convinced. The fish special with a coconut curry, beans and rice was excellent. Truly worth a visit

Had lunch on a summer weekday, the restaurant was nearly empty. I ordered a Greek salad with chicken, instead of shrimp. The chicken breast was nicely seared, moist and tasty. However, to me, Greek salad is an array of salad greens, olives, cucumber, tomato, red...More

Had dinner during the week, on a not too crowded night. The starters were a big hit with all, especially the muscles and the home made tortellini. The main dishes all gathered raves, from the pasta premavera to the perfectly prepared steak. They didn't realize...More

We are glad you enjoyed your dinner with us. I apologize for being out of the dessert you wanted, but hopefully you enjoyed the dessert you had. We will make sure to have the dessert you originally wanted the next time you come in.

We decided to give it a try again after several years of avoiding it, in the hope that it had improved in that time. Unfortunately, it hasn't. Despite being half-empty, the room was noisy, and our hope that interesting specials would liven up the blah...More
