A friend and I were going to eat lunch at another place but it was not open so he suggested here.

We both had a nice pinot grigio (9 apiece). He got a burger and I got fish & chips.
The fish was very good, the one piece of fish was a little over-cooked on the outside but delicious. The fries were good but a bit limp. We shared a delicious very dense brownie with icecream and caramel sauce, it was quite good.

We really enjoyed our lunch; this is a beautiful place and the service was quite good.
I was here once for a date and the views at night with the lights is magnificent!

A recommendation from a Tucsonite--one of two or three top restaurants in town--brought us here for a late lunch. The place was near-empty, and we were seated by a window with a panoramic view of town, probably wonderful at night. An excellent hornitos margarita made and served by Karen, our attentive server. (Her secret--a dash of orange juice.). We shared an order of calimari, served with tempura vegetables and braised garlic. Delish. And an order of the house-smoked salmon in a dramatic presentation. Very fine. Acacia is definitely a contender.

Acacia saved what otherwise would have been a disastrous weekend birthday night out. You see yours truly did not have the foresight to make reservations. I mean this is Tucson after all. What were the odds? But after getting turned away at Wildflower on the west side of town and the Abbey on the complete opposite east end, Acacia met us in the middle and took us in like we were Joseph and Mary. A more mellow and less crowded venue than our first two selections, they were able to accommodate us at a bar-height table in the lounge. The hostess was even kind enough to come by later to inform us of a no-show and offered us the table. We kindly declined as we were content. I recommend the linguine prawns and Italian sausage rigatoni from the lounge menu.

Each course had two different dishes-- two appetizers, two entrees, and two desserts. Per person. Two different wines with each dish, selected to complement the dish. It was divine.

Very nice surprise. Great ambience and food. Not rushed, had an almost European feel to it, good views and excellent food.
