Creative local cuisine by chef Gregory Specials each night including appetizer, entree, and often dessert too are also creatively done and usually a great choice to try

We have returned to Acton after a 5 year absence and this place is just as good as it was when we left. This is our third visit in the last 6 months and each time it was terrific.The service is good and the people are pleasant.The food is creative but not crazy.

We had a family dinner at Sprigs and everyone in the party was happy with their meal. The appetizers, desert and main courses were great. The chef was willing to pay attention to lactose free for several guests and all were comfortable with the arrangements. The restaurant is quiet and fun.

I've enjoyed eating at sprigs but their selection is limited for none meat eaters - one time I had asked for the sauce on the side and the waitress wasn't sure if the cook would agree -they did. I've liked them more in the past but I feel like the service is going down hill. Seating in the main area... More

Maybe from the outside Sprigs does not look fancy but we truly enjoyed the entire evening. Comfortable, quiet dining room. Great service. Appetizer mussels were fresh and tasty together with a glass of proseco. And sorbet to clear the palate! The cod and boar chops were both excellent main courses. For dessert the creme brule was a bit too liquid... More

food is good and so is service. I have 2 complaints though. The chicken under a brick is arguably the signature dish. They should bring back mashed potatoes. the main dining area is not well ventilated. I always feel the area to be hot/stuffy by the time I am well into my meal.

Thank you for your review, Tunedown2d. One of your complaints is easier to address than the other. I will mention to my husband, our chef, your wish for the return of the mashed potatoes. Regarding the restaurant being hot and stuffy, unfortunately, we have a very old system, and the temperature does tend to be erratic. We are getting the... More

Sprigs is one of the better restaurants in the area. It is pricy, but, worth it. The menu is limited with enough choices to make anyone happy. They also have a decent wine list.

Cozy and small. Great food! Reservations are highly recommended. They serve local vegetables from their own garden during summer time.

Finally got around to visiting Sprigs after living nearby since '08 and seeing great reviews. We chose to forego our reservation for a table and have dinner at the bar because it was relatively empty. What a cool atmosphere. Had butternut squash bisque which was very nice (but was a little under seasoned), a pretty nice pear salad and the... More
