“Sometimes it's right in front of your nose!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

Quickly -

Sioux Falls isn't a Foodie paradise. There are a few - a few - restaurants that are pretty greatt but anything new is usually full of pretension or a franchise.

Tonight, we went to Acoustic on the repeated recommendation of a few people and...it's awesome!

The menu is small and the choices aren't exactly exotic cuisine...but it's solid! I had a pizza - thin crust with a braided heel; it was almost Napoli style with oil, garlic and thin toppings only it wasn't greasy, overpowering or skimpy. I got to sample the Brisket BBQ and though it arrived with the presentation of a small-town diner, the flavor was outstanding! Lean meat, rich sauce...and please. Don't tell me that those sweet potato fries are anything but home made...because I wouldn't believe it if they weren't; crisp, light breading...

Our service was excellent; she knew the menu up/down and made recommendations based on her experience. I like that as it shows the Help care about their craft. Food came on time, hot food hot, cold food cold...as expected.

Wine was fairly priced but our bottle was off...and it really didn't matter because the rest of the meal was awesome.

The Sangria is supposedly awesome but I'm not a fan. Not that that matters as I don't like sangria anyway.

Pricing is right in-line with anything from the franchises to mid-level restaurants - expect an $18 ticket pp with drinks, tax and tip.

However, it's rare that a restaurant is excellent and even rarer that you leave wondering if the rest of the menu is made with such care. We will be back to try the rest.

“Good food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

I have been there three times in the last 30 days. The servers are Fun - Food is even better. (Always consider Chef Josh's Special Of The Day - and hope there is some left when you get there.)

“So Good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013

Had dinner here and it was so good. I had the blackjack burger with sweet potato fries and would probably have to have them again if I returned because they were great. The banana foster cake was amazing as well.

The atmosphere was warm and welcoming on a cold night. The price was great for the value and quality of the food. Should I return to the area I'll definitely go back.

“The atmosphere, the staff and best of all the food!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

This place is so worth your visit, the staff knows the menu perfectly, can advise you if needed. The atmosphere is laid back and perfect for your whole evening to visit with friends or starting your evening. There is a special dinner course and dessert most weekends along with the menu. The pizza is perfect and I am not sure if the margherita or barbQ chicken is my favorite. Last night I had shrimp boil-it came with a salad, little garlic/cheese breads and then the savory cajun dish. I did not have dessert as I was too full but I was definitely tempted by the red velvet cream puff special-maybe next time. Keep up the good work Aoustic-I love local spots.

“Yes, the Blackjack burger is as good as everyone says”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

Stopped for a late evening Saturday dinner. We were seated promptly and enjoyed the unique atmosphere in a converted old warehouse. Three of the four of us ordered the Blackjack Burger & Dirty Fries based on comments in previous reviews. Both were everything they were cracked up to be... a dining highlight of a trip that also included other great local dining experiences. One of us also had the Harvester pizza and it was excellent, as was the one piece of caramel apple cheesecake we shared. Acoustic provides a casual, unique atmosphere with great food.
