Love to eat at Acacia when in Tucson. The service is top notch. The wine pairing is my all time favorite. Six small plates with delicious flavors paired with really wonderful wine selections.

Great food, although a bit pricey. Excellent service. Called a few minutes before we arrived (party of 14). Given a private room. Fantastic!

We asked for a table near the window at lunch, but it proved to be too bright so they let us move one table away. We still had the great view of the city, but the sun was not in our eyes. Our table ordered the calamari, two different salads and the salmon and all were very good.

My husband and I went for our anniversary. We mentioned it as we walked in, but did not expect anything from it. The waitstaff were attentive and helpful, being very accommodating around our allergies. I had a signature drink and a glass of wine......both were above expectations. The food was excellent. We were offered a complimentary dessert and it came... More

Maybe 4.5 stars. 4 of us had dinner and food ranged from very good to superb. The best was the charcuterie- great combo of meats and cheeses. Calamari better than most we've had. I thought salmon, while good, had too much sauce that somewhat overwhelmed dish. On other hand Sea bass done just right. 2 had the schnitzel , which... More

We had visited Acacia for Thanksgiving a couple of years ago and although the price was quite expensive, we always wanted to try it again for dinner. We had the opportunity while visiting Tucson last month to do just that. The menu is varied but the quality of food was not impressive. My husband ordered a filet mignon and I... More

Great Happy Hour selection while enjoying an incredible view looking out over Tucson. No patio seating but bar area is very comfortable. Can walk to restaurant from Embassy Suites on Skyline.

We've been many times in the past with good results, but turkey day was a real turkey. Service remains excellent, but the main courses at our table, standing rib roast and lamb were tasteless and tough. The crudités and wine saved a lower rating. Maybe just a bad day, but bad days are no fun at $45 per person.

Service was average with perhaps a bit too much "wait" before water, rolls, etc. but it was a busy Thanksgiving day. There was nothing whatsoever special about this meal (turkey with trimmings). The meat was a bit dry, not nearly enough gravy on the mashed potatoes, just not that interesting for a special meal. The pumpkin pie was equally ordinary... More

Acacia is known for its excellent food and that reputation is well deserved. My experience was on a Friday evening (understandably busy). The poor waitress was working the bar area where she had too many tables to serve. We waited 30 minutes to place a drink order and 20 minutes to receive them. It was not the waitress' fault. She...
