They specialize in seafood, and do it right. Everything is fresh; I've never had a bad or mediocre meal here. It's fine dining establishment, so it isn't cheap, but you definitly get your money's worth. There is a weekday prix-fix menu that is an excellent deal. The the wine and cocktails are also excellent.

Acacia Midtown has become our favorite dining venue. The menu is always filled with locally sourced, impeccably prepared dishes. The appetizers includes" to die for" fried oysters that are supremely crispy and crunchy while maintaining the creamy, soft and sweet interior of the oyster. Pasta dishes, available in entree and appetizer portions, include seared scallops and potato gnocchi - beyond... More

My husband and I went for half price wine night for a pre-Valentine's Day dinner. We started with a fabulous Sancerre and some great bread and butter. My husband got the pan-fried chicken breast with macaroni and cheese gratin. I had the bacon wrapped duck breast with wine sauce and brussels sprouts over creamy grits. Everything was cooked perfectly the... More

Acacia always delivers on top quality and artistically inspired food. Every bite of food is delicious and delivers with fresh ingredients. The service is impeccable and each plate is placed before you with a smile from the wait staff. The crab cakes are to die for and a must if you have never had one of Dale's locally sourced seafood...

We have eaten at Acacia several time this year and enjoyed the food and experience. When friends visited us for Christmas we chose Acacia as one of the spots to dine. As it turned out we were a bit embarrassed for them to think we thought Acacia was a place to bring friends; as some of our meals were poorly... More

I was taken to this restaurant for my birthday recently and was it ever a TREAT!!! Every morsel was so very tasty. The crab cake that I had was all meaty crab, no filler. It wasn't overpowered by spices, just yummy crab flavor. The tuna ceviche was also to die for!! The lobster soup which I had a little taste... More

The food and service were wonderful. Fixe Price meal was delicious and plentiful. Noise from a party of probably 125 people in the back made the noise level unbearable and uncomfortable for conversation to be had.

Great atmosphere, delicious food and beverage. Pricey but worth it. In the heart of Carytown it deserves its high rating.

Loved it!!! I recommend the fixed price option. It was fantastic. The only strange thing is, everyone at the table has to agree to it. We all did though. Choice of 2 apps, 4 entrees, and 2 desserts. Only $24 and large portions!!! Bread and butter too! We were able to each have a fancy cocktail and then a nice... More

Food is great, drinks are yummy and different depending on the season and what's being grown in the owner's garden at that time...so cool! Pricy, but worth it to me. Reservations recommended, even when there are tables that are empty, trust me, they are booked and the place will be packed. Service is great too!
