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

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

My boyfriend and I went to Acacia on a Wednesday night thanks to a restaurant.com gift certificate. We were absolutely thrilled by the experience! The dining room is very pretty and had nice music, which allowed for easy conversation across the table. Acacia is BYOB and our waitress was very prompt with bringing over glasses and serving our wine. Appetizers... More

This well-designed and beautiful restaurant is obvious from the moment you enter. From being greeted by the very friendly waitstaff to having your order taken and all questions fully answered until the always excellently prepared foods arrive, this restaurant cannot be topped. The three course mid-day special meals are a real bargain and prepared individually with the same care given... More

Recommend the crab cakes and the grilled Griggstown chicken. Both were very good. Have had the sirloin burger at lunch several times before. The Tiger fish entree is also very good. We eat at Acacia 10 times a year. Had a good crowd for a Thursday evening considering the rainy weather and the late hour. service was very good. Recommend... More
