Tiny But Packed With Flavor

Tucked in amongst a string of retail shops and restaurants on Lawrenceville's main street, you could easily miss Acacia's nondescript entrance. Don't let that happen. Once inside you are directly in a light filled dining room with a casual air and minimal fussiness. Tables are of various size and... read more

We love Acacia. I had a birthday party there in November, which could not have been more perfect. We ate there again last Sunday. The menu had new "summer" items and everyone at our table ordered something different and we tasted it all. There wasn't a bad dish in the bunch. Really a lovely place, great food and excellent service.... More

We went to Acacia for dinner on a Sunday in July and it was delightful. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was so calming, and the service was superb. There is nothing we would have changed about our dinner that night.

Great food and great service! It's been a while since I have been able to eat here, but it was worth it. Dynomite!

We travel the Route 206 corridor on our way to DC four or more times a year and make it a point to stop at this lovely little restaurant. The atmosphere is welcoming, the service is excellent and the meals are outstanding. I the years we have been going to Acacia we have never had anything but a top notch... More

A gourmet experience that was perfectly executed. Acacia is quickly becoming one of my favorite places.

My fiancee and I dined here to give the place anther chance...I don't know about all the time, but everything was too salty...from the clams (too salty) to the pork porterhouse (too salty)...the homemade ice cream was great! Service was excellent! atmosphere comfortable, but the food is average despite fancy labels....

My wife and I have passed by Acacia any number of times on our way to Princeton. We finally decided to stop in and are so glad we did. The food, service and atmosphere was exceptional. You can bet this will be on our short list of great places to go for dinner in the future..for sure! EH and FEH

We have dined at Acacia for probably 20 years now. Over the years it has changed hands and we will admit that we stopped going there for a period of time. But we recently took a look at the website/menu and realized that a new chef/owner was in place and wanted to give it a try. We dined there last... More

I had given a great review after the first time we had great experience with food and service. Since then, we had dinner many time and always enjoyed the great food; the service was always medium to slow when the restaurant becomes full, since usually you never see more than 2 waitresses. Last night's experience was awful. We were a... More
