Outstanding meal. The waiter's help was required to gain an understanding of the unfamiliar terms on the menu but the four course, $30 meal, was a delicious bargain. The seafood risotto was one of the best examples of that dish I've ever had. Scallops on a bed of ragu infused spinach were also terrific. The wine list is limited to Italian selections. Ambience is good but the tables lack tablecloths and the view of the area outside the windows is forgettable. Very nice experience.

we have been to acero several times in past few weeks. the food is always tasty and we are fans of the smaller tasting menu. You have your selection of 4 courses that you pick from each catagory. the portions are smaller than full menu but the entire cost is $ 30 and amounts are quite enough. A good variety to choose from. Only complaint is that the restaurant was a little cool on a very cold evening and that should be improved.

We had a work dinner at Acero this week. When we arrived, our table of 6 was the only table of people in the restaurant (when we left, there was only one other table of people). Our waiter was knowledgeable, but not friendly, and acted superior. Not once did he ask us how we liked the food or come back to check to see if we needed anything. The only time he came to the table was to bring us our courses, clear our dishes and bring our drinks. When we got the bill, he told us he added on a 20% gratuity................for a table of 6?!?! And it wasn't even listed on the menu that they would do this. Granted, at least he told us the gratuity was added on (I really dislike when they don't tell you!), but 20%. I normally would tip at least 20%, but it irks me when they add it on automatically for a party of 6 when there was almost nobody else in the restaurant.

The food on the other hand was delicious! I highly recommend the meat donuts, the ragu, and the warm chocolate cake with salted caramel ice cream!!!!

The food was terrible. Ordered medium rare lamb and was served well done. After I complained they go it redone. This time one piece was medium rare the other was extremely rare/uncooked. Not sure how they mess this up?

Other things we ordered were average not exceptional or great.
