Best Foodie Restaurant in Lawrenceville.

Things generally are very excellent here but not consistently so. They miss a beast once in a while. But the're trying hard to improve (it's new management and chef) so we keep returning.

A 3 course luncheon beginning with pear salad presented beautifully with thinly sliced pear flared over greens with a touch of bleu cheese and cran raisins. Entree of roasted salmon with spinach and lentils, absolutely delicious and to finish in grand style -butterscotch creme brulee..We were spoiled. Acacia is now on our A list. Can't wait to sample the next...... More

Acacia recently got a new chef. They retained the old standards but added a variety of excellent new fish dishes. If your taste goes the other way the sirloin is always cooked to perfection. Added to this the restaurant is BYOB so you can bring a variety of spirits with you. The venue is well thought out and they always... More

Opted for their pear salad for lunch. Salad was delicious, greens very fresh and just the correct amount of dressing. Service was exceptional. I would definitely return, this time for dinner.

Don't get me wrong, the food and customer service (except the Hostess) are excellent. When we arrived for dinner (with reservations) we asked to be moved to a different table by the window. The hostess said we could but only for do so, if we ate in one hour. Our server (who was quite pleasant) was very busy and did... More

Rarely do I get to spend time with both of my adult children. I specifically chose Acacia. Your wait staff is over the top. Food was great. Everyone was happy. We ordered appetizers, dinner, dessert. We were not rushed.

This is a sweet little restaurant that boasts a varied menu, but not one that always hits the mark. The grilled octopus was a tad tough and it's charred grill taste didn't pair well with Asian flovors of the ginger and wilted bok Choy. My husband, the vegetarian, had one option: the falafel bowl in a bed of grains. The... More
