Joined friends for dinner here early evening on a Monday night. Were a little afraid that since no one else was in the restaurant we might get slovenly service but we were treated like royalty and the food was outstanding. We all did the tasting menu which is a great concept & definitely worth every penny. Every course was perfectly... More

Wonderful from first course to last of the four course tasting menu. We tried a variety and were pleased with all. Quite a bargain as well. We sat at the front window at a table for two and were served by a vivacious and knowledgeable young woman named Mandi who was a joy. The two hour experience was a total... More

My wife and I went to Acero's Restaurant at about 8:30 pm on August 16, 2014 to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. We had just left another restaurant before we even ordered there because of the loud noise, expense and limited food choices. Acero's Restaurant was a bit noisy when we arrived but we were seated in a nice booth even... More

We went to an outside art fair tonight in Maplewood and after viewing the art we stopped in Acero, where we had eaten years ago. But tonight we had the Tasting Menu, which is a four-course dinner for $30. Maybe I just made the right choices, but my meal was wonderful, beginning with the green salad, then a slightly spicy...

Lovely little cafe in downtown Maplewood, MO. They use all local produce and products from the area and their menu changes daily. The staff is excellent, the wine list is fabulous and the food was not only gorgeous, but delicious. This will definitely become one of my favorites. The four course tasting menu for $30 per person is the way... More

Went here for dinner yesterday with friends and family. The menu had a lot of unique italian dishes that I was not familiar with. I ordered the tasting menu which was great because you got 4 small courses to try a variety of items. The scallops were some of the best I have ever had. My friends who had pasta... More

If you are in the area, be sure to go to this restaurant. We had an amazing four course meal for $30. I had chicken liver mousse on toast, spaghetti with a delicious chile sauce, outstanding wild boar Ragusa on polenta and, for an additional $5, the cheese platter. Everything was delicious. My husband also had a terrific meal: a... More

What a pleasant surprise! Meet and mix at a nearby brew house. Then walk here for a fine meal in the European tradition. Unassuming but knowledgeable wait service. Great food and a wine list for everybody.

Acero is a gem. First, it's a nice-looking restaurant -- both classy and comfortable. Second, the service was great -- attentive without being intrusive, with helpful recommendations on both food and wine. Third, and most importantly, the food was terrific. Our group included six people, and everyone thought every dish was a success. As others have mentioned, the $30 4-course... More

Truly one of the best restaurants in St. Louis. We are foodies, and we were delighted with the food, the service, the atmosphere, and the value. Highly recommend this restaurant.
