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!

Richmond VA has become well-known lately for outstanding restaurants. It's true this is foody heaven. But if I had to choose only one restaurant as the best of the best, it would be Acacia mid-town. From the complimentary valet parking, comfortable contemporary interior, friendly and professional service, every detail has been considered to make your visit pleasurable. But the star... More

Going from a metropolitan city to a local capital I was nervous; as a vegan foodie in a pseudo-southern place, finding delicious food can be hard, Acacia Midtown though was a gem in the dark; they took my dietary restrictions and instead of handing me a pile of "sides" vegetables they created a delicious risotto! I was so impressed! the... More

The chef of this restaurant has won some awards apparently; that only means higher prices. That's why the hip people seem to congregate there, making it noisy. Food wasn't particularly special, though. I had the cobia on a bed of ravioli and some seasonal vegetables. The dish was nicely plated, but it didn't taste that particularly special. Ho-hum. Have been... More

My husband and I absolutely love Acacia! It is always our first choice for a great dinner with friends when we head to Richmond for a weekend.

Acacia has become a favorite and often repeated location for dinner in Richmond. The seasonal menus are creative, and at the same time, contain entrees that are recognizable as food - I.e. creative, not crazy. The seafood entrees are always delicious as are the meat and fowl. There are also delightful, seasonal craft cocktails on a separate menu. The atmosphere... More

this restaurant is, for some weird reason, rated highly on yelp and other places. this is only our second time eating here and our last - too many good restaurants to waste time. the food was mediocre - i had the soft shell crabs and they were okay - the ones at mama zu's are way better; my husband had...

I had the scallop with spinach dish. The 7 scallops were nicely prepared. Unfortunately, I was expecting a decent serving of spinach, not a scanty amount to add some color to the presentation. No other vegetables came with the dish. The panna cotta desert is not worth it at all. I didn't care for the person serving us - he... More
