I had known about this restaurant for some time but finally had the opportunity to go there. What a fabulous meal. We (party of 4) enjoyed every morsel! This was fine dining at it's best. The courses were not rushed, the food was plated beautifully, and of course, every bite was delicious. The service was impeccable. We have only wonderful... More

Acacia had been off our list for quite awhile because of its dowdy feel and just okay food. What a nice experience we just had there! New chef Chris is coming up with some truly inventive dishes presented in an attractive but not overly decorative way. (Better to have hot food than a lukewarm one that has been uber-designed.)

We hadn't been to Acacia in several years and were very happy with our dinner and overall experience. It was even better because they had a Jazz Combo, the Rick Fiori Trio playing. Very festive, fantastic food and great service! Salmon was the best I've probably ever had!

salmon was perfect, arugula salad and the caesar salad were both great. Scallops and crab cakes were also very good. Recommend the place very much.

I have eaten here for years and the restaurant has been up and down and back up again. They do a good job of putting foods and tastes together that are not commonly put together with a good result. The menu changes regularly. Now they entice the locals with discounts some weekends, and that is a nice change because it... More

My wife and I have dined at Acacia several times over the years, but have not been there there for a while. We decided to have our 26th anniversary dinner there and really enjoyed our meal! We have generally found our meals at Acacia to be very good. However, this meal was outstanding from start to finish. We had an... More

We ate there around November 6, 2014. We've lived in the area for 20 years and this used to be the two best restaurants in the area including Princeton. Over the past 7 years or so one closed and Acacia's been disappointing. However, with a new chef (Chris, I believe) it has returned. The appetizer, entree, and dessert were all... More

Somehow over the years, we forgot about this restaurant. I'm planning a party and it seemed like a good choice for several reasons. I hadn't eaten here is years though, so we wanted to try it. It was wonderful. The Griggstown Chicken Breast was the best chicken I've had in years. The salmon was also excellent, as were the sides.... More

We went to Acacia to celebrate a special occasion for sentimental reasons. This restaurant used to be one of the finest in the area, but has changed hands several times in the last few years. But we decided to try it anyway. We ordered the octopus appetizer (OK), cauliflower and apple soup (not very flavorful), arugula salad (not well dressed... More

Louise, I want to sincerely apologize for the experience you had here at Acacia recently. Our chef is 100% dedicated to serving only the best quality food while keeping the items on the menu as local and seasonal as possible. I want to assure you that Acacia still operates with the same level of quality it has in the past.... More
