4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2014 NEW

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...

Acacia came highly recommended on several review sights as well as from locals. I was somewhat disappointed. The staff was very friendly and very knowledgable about their wine selections. The restaurant is set up in the foothills so it has a great view of the city. The decor was nice with lighting just right. Unfortunately the food was just okay.... More

Happy Hour is the time to visit if you need to go lighter on the wallet while enjoying this excellent food. They pride themselves in buying local. The happy hour offerings, served in the bar area, are smaller so that you can sample a number of small plates. The drink values are good too. The views looking down on Tucson... More
