Not sure why I don't eat here more often

My husband and I recently had dinner at Acacia. We had a terrific meal. The food is great, the decorating is very nice and the wait staff knows what there are doing. I definitely recommend this restaurant and plan to return again soon!

Last night we ate again at one of our favorite neighborhood places, Acacia. This time it was even better than ever before. We started out with squid stuffed with short ribs. Sounds like a funny combination, but it was well seasoned and the contrasting textures of the seafood and flaky beef made it a unique dish. Then, I had the... More

My wife and I went to acacia on a Friday night for dinner. We had been to acacia before but had not been there for a couple of years so decided to go again. The decor in the restaurant is bland and feels as though it could do with a little lift but it certainly isn't bad. The service is... More

Title of the review says it all. Acacia had it all going for them (and our party of six)! Service was prompt, friendly, professional. Bottle service was very accommodating and complete. The food - well, it all was perfect. Steaks cooked exactly as requested (by the gods, they were wonderful!), the local Griggstown chicken was tender as could be, sides... More

Fabulous place. Excellent food. Great service. Friendly staff. For a town with few fine dining restaurants this place measured up to our standards of a restaurant. We were visiting family and we are from NYC. I was impressed to learn that the chef hailed from 11 Madison Park in Manhattan. Will definitely recommend this place for those traveling to Lawrenceville,... More

We came to Acacia to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. The staff was warm and welcoming. The place was neat and tidy. The chef came out to greet us and was very friendly and pleasant. The food was delicious. BYOB is always an added bonus.

Our experiences at Acacia are always memorable. They have an ever-changing menu with lots of great choices. The place has great ambiance and the wait-staff is extremely attentive. Always a great time! And... its BYOB!

Called and made a reservation with Lauren (owner) for a special anniversary meal, a tasting menu by Chef Chris (owner) - and it was special and amazing! Five dishes and one was better than the next - my favorite was the coho salmon over a lime seasoned puree - my wife's favorite was a soft-boiled free range egg over humus... More
