Visiting from out of town, locals took us to this restaurant on a Saturday night. It was busy and high energy. The bartender was outstanding and knew how to mix a Manhattan. We sat in the back room,Munich was less noisy. Marco took great care of us. Each of us ordered the pick four option from the menu. The choices... More

My friend and I have been going to Acero for years and each of us has our favorites. Sad to say; in the latest menu change, the "Gnudi"-my favorite food at Acero-has been taken off the menu. We can always get seats at the bar without reservations. If you are of a certain age and your hearing is starting to... More

Once in a while we add a favored restaurant to our "will certainly return" list and Acero is now on that very short list. Food and service are wonderful. We've only done the four course tasting menu on both trips thus far to Acero and love it but we are certain ordering from the regular menu would be great as... More

Seems like the mark of a very creative chef and a fantastic restaurant is how well they do with their appetizers. The appetizer list was very "meh". Nothing special stands out that hasn't been done elsewhere. We ended up trying the prosciutto beignets, but they were seriously disappointing. It's just a deep fried donut with a thin slice of prosciutto... More

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
