Good expense account place!

Upscale ambiance, excellent friendly service and beautiful views of mountains and city in the distance make Acacia an enjoyable dining experience. That being said, note must be made that the food, while well prepared and presented, is skimpy and pricey. Two small slices of duck accompanied by a few... read more

Lovely views at sunset overlooking the city, amazing food, fine tasting menu with wine pairings. Attentive service. Many gluten-free options.

Celebrate a birthday during lunch with some dear friends from South Africa. The food and service was very good! Will most definitely come here again. Lovely view from our table overlooking the city, tasteful finishing touches and friendly staff.

Acacia is a small restaurant with a unique and contemporary menu. This restaurant is upstairs, but there is easy access via an elevator. We were greeted and quickly seated at a great table next to the window. Most seats in the restaurant have a good view. The dining room is dark and very modern. Our waiter was very attentive to...

Love eating lunch here! Excellent, and I mean excellent food with fabulous views of Tucson! Service is always friendly, knowledgeable, but not overzealous. I love to bring out of town guests here as they are always impressed with everything. Parking is free too!

That being said, note must be made that the food, while well prepared and presented, is skimpy and pricey. Two small slices of duck accompanied by a few delicately parceled out veggies cost a whopping $30! A very modest... More

We were a group of 7 and were seated in a private room off the main dining room. If you are a group and want quiet dining its the way to go. Food was excellent if a bit pricy but they had no problem with sharing and even split entrees in the kitchen. Would recommend. On par with the other... More

Acacia has very good reviews and is not a bad place at all...It's a very cool place inside, rather smallish, but that was fine. If there were simply a "Good" category, that is how I would have rated Acacia.I felt like I really wanted to like it, but for all the raves, I was really let down. I had a... More

Tucson advertises itself as a "foodie" town, but we were totally underwhelmed on our 5-day visit (I'll admit our bar is set pretty high given that we live in a foodie town + are near the glories of Berkeley, Oakland, and San Francisco). Acacia was the notable exception--the food, service, and atmosphere (and the prices!) are on a level with... More

We could see this restaurant from our hotel terrace across the street. Nothing special from the outside. You would never stop there when you are on the road. One of the most unattractive facades I have ever seen for a restaurant. You can't even see if it is open or not from the outside. We went there because we were... More

Modern decor. Nice wine list and bar offerings. Very friendly service. The food is nicely prepared and the set menu (with wine pairings) was a hit. The bar area looks like it is a happening place. We requested a quiet booth, which worked well. We would definitely go back.
