- Delish in the neighborhoodOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 9/27/2014Great find with a laid back vibe and great, original food. There's a focus on seasonal items, which is awesome because the menu's always got something new!Special Features:

- Food delicious but felt rushedCatuDined on 9/20/2014Food and drinks are delicious. Ambiance is warm, inviting and trendy. They serve cornbread! However, service felt very rushed on this visit.Special Features:
- idiotic servicedonlopeaguirreVIPDined on 9/20/2014Look, I know you want to turn the table and move people along. You have a business to run. But when you actively, openly *pressure* me to order NOW urgently NOW, you are rude, unprofessional, and counter-productive. Ive been here a few times, always a good meal, but our server was terrible. And it was happening all around us, from other servers - almost like it was a competition to see how fast they could move you along. Management needs to either 1, change their policy, or 2, intervene on rogue staffers who are ruining dining experiences. Good luck to all you diners out there - its a roll of the dice apparently.Special Features:
- Hundred Percent Effort AgainadubsDined on 9/19/2014I often say Hundred Acres is my favorite restaurant in the City. I have been there for several special occasions and the dinners and drinks are always top notch. This most recent experience we had a thoughtful server who did not rush us and offered advice on the food and drink menu.Special Features:
- Neighbor23VIPDined on 9/19/2014I can't understand how such a good restaurant claimed not having whole wheat bread for a 9 AM breakfast. Apology does not justify it.Special Features:

- First time....that I loved my dishroronycVIPDined on 9/17/2014Merluza dish was excellent. Small portions, but good.....I would at least expected 3 small pieces rather than 2 small cuts.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- the cinnamon buns to die forMariannDined on 9/14/2014I love sweet stuff and so the cinnamon buns were an obvious choice to share. I was not disappointed: they were delicious. I also love the brunch menu items and the cocktails. The southern sweet tea is really good!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Hidden GemfantasticfoodieDined on 9/7/2014I lucked into an 11am reservation on a Sunday only about 2 hours before and when we arrived we were promptly seated even though one of our party was still on her way. Our waiter, Aaron was wonderful, charismatic and very interactive with my four year old brother. He did an excellent job on selling us on the drinks and food. I wasn't blown away by the food- the pancakes I ordered were nothing special. My mom really enjoyed her turkey hash though. What was delish was the muffin as part of the bread plate and to be fair, Aaron did suggest the cinnamon rolls that looked amazing. We had the watermelon bellinis and they were very tasty! They played great music and I'd definitely go back again to try lunch.Special Features:
- 100x what I anticipatedt182288VIPDined on 9/6/2014I heard great things about this place but mostly about brunch. We had dinner here with my boyfriend and his father for their birthdays and it was awesome. Our waitress was attentive but not pushy. She answered all of our questions. The menu is interesting but not where you can't pronounce things on the menu. The oysters were awesome, my drink was a heavy pour and my steak was cooked perfectly. It was a great night outSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice neighborhood, quaint.NYCvisitorDined on 9/5/2014The neighborhood, ambiance and service were great. The food was good, but, not outstanding. Would likely try another dish (hangar steak) as mine was average.Special Features:
- Great Brunch!CasperCDined on 8/30/2014We had brunch over Labor Day weekend and it was great. We had the cinnamon buns and beignets for the table and they were both delicious. The beignets were light and fluffly, cinnamon buns were perfectly gooey and cinnamon-ey. The soft scrambled eggs with veggies was delicious, but the jalapeno grits were the standout for me. Super creamy and fluffy. Other dishes at our table were the baked eggs with black beans and the french toast. The french toast was the only dish that didn't completely satisfy, it really needed more fruit or syrup. The bread was very thick, which is a good thing, but it was a tad dry. Other than the french toast, every dish was tasty and satisfying!Special Features:
- lovelykeeblerVIPDined on 8/29/2014Great staff, great food, lovely ambiance. Generous portions and delicious grits!Special Features:
- Try it out!CitygirlDined on 8/28/2014My friend and I love to go around the city and dine in "new" restaurants. Hundred Acres has been around for about 2 years and has a beautiful patio and layout in general. Great wines and wild whiskeys that you must try. We ordered the ricotta cavatelli and the special "fish" of the day and THOROUGhLY enjoyed the vegetable dish (cavatelli). We did not care for the squash and spinach-filled deboned catch of the day with mint sauce-- as there was no savory taste. My friend doesn't care for salt but mentioned that it needed some salt to taste. I agreed. It was a bit bland and cold oddly enough. However, we loved loved the cavatelli dish and had 2 very attentive servers and wait staff that made us feel right at home. Perfect service!Special Features:
- IncredibleDined on 8/23/2014First visit here and loved it. The cocktails were amazing and the food was outstanding. We had the chicken, grits and heirloom salad. Highly recommend.Special Features:
- Perfect pre-show dinnerMiaZeeDined on 8/23/2014The seasonal watermelon lemonade with jalapeño vodka cocktail was utterly refreshing and not too sweet. The vodka infusion is done in-house. We asked about the green or almost herbal quality to the drink and our informative and personable waiter said there was also cucumber in the mix. Highly recommended! We started with the chicken liver mousse and fried green tomatoes. For our entrées, we had the jambalaya and the porchetta. Both were delicious and not overly seasoned. The pork was cooked to perfection and the crispy skin was candy-like. For around $100 (sans tip), two drinks, two appetizers, and two entrées, and attentive service made for a notable dining experience. The setting is also very nice, with a zen-meets-sonoma type quality.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great for supperWolyDined on 8/22/2014Good short menu, good wine list and great place for a relaxed supperSpecial Features:
- always excellent foodLinaHDined on 8/16/2014We've been coming here for years- both for brunch and dinner, and love the atmosphere and the food. Me and my husband also frequent the other restaurants by the same owners; Five Points and Cookshop. I would say Cookshop is at the pinnacle of these three restaurants, and Five Points is great for brunch, with a more busy casual vibe. Hundred Acres feels slightly less fancy than Cookshop, and less crazy to get reservation, but the food is always amazing, and I like the location on a quiet street in ShoHo.Special Features:
- pre-theater light brunchchefjimDined on 8/16/2014Gumbo had everything I expect in the dish. Saturday very crowded, had to take a 1:45 reservation. Waiter got us out on time.Special Features:
- Best Cinnamon RollsOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/16/2014Go for the Cinnamon Rolls and a Bloody Mary. The pimento cheese sandwich was subpar at best but I have high expectations being from the south. However, the turkey sandwich wasn't mind-blowing either.Special Features:

- perfectrileyavesDined on 8/12/2014A perfect evening of unbelievable food, outstanding wine list, and amazing service and atmosphere. Easily one of the best dining experiences i've ever had.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice, laid backAndrewDined on 8/7/2014It had a really cool ambiance and I liked the fact that the menu is always changing and being updated with fresh ingredients. Our server was nice and the staff was great. The octopus appetizer was really unique and the pork chop was deliciousSpecial Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 7/29/2014Not the best wine list and the service could have been better. But food is DELISH. Get the hushpuppies, deviled eggs and pork chop!Special Features:
- Great 3rd anniversary dinner!AnniversarycplDined on 7/29/2014Celebrated my 3rd wedding anniversary there. We loved the deviled eggs and the hush puppies we had for appetizers. Our meals were also very good. I had the conrnmeal crusted catfish which had a nice crispy-crunchiness to it. My husband had the duck and although he remaked it was a small portion, he enjoyed it a great deal. He said it was prepared perfectly and not greasy. We both enjoyed our desserts, he the bread pudding and I had the peach cobbler. Our waiter was great! He was friendly and informative and paid just the right amount of attention to As we left, I noticed the bar was quite alive with people laughing and having a good time. It was a great evening!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good buzz, so-so foodRobAndJeanneVIPDined on 7/27/2014We went to Sunday brunch with a reservation but still had to wait 20 minutes to get our table. The place certainly draws a crowd but I'm guessing it's more for the hipster vibe. Our waiter was quick to point out that the most important item on the menu was an array of bloody Mary choices -- we just wanted brunch. The sandwiches were well-sized but just sandwiches and the gumbo was surprisingly sparse and more like a soup, though it did taste good. All in all, only an okay experience.
- LaurenDined on 7/26/2014I loved the "farm to table" style of Hundred Acres. The menu was seasonal and everything was reasonably priced. The fried oysters were delicious. Some creative drink specials and a nice bourbon and wine selection. I will definitely return, and recommend to my friends!Special Features:
- PleasedBlackLabDined on 7/25/2014The food was good, service attentive and surroundings pleasant. The main dining room is a bit noisy.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Jcruz0519VIPDined on 7/24/2014This is one one my favorite restaurants. Great space - I prefer sitting in the back if I'm with a large group. I love the fact their menu is seasonal. The drinks and food have been consistently good. Unfortunately, our latest meal was a little disappointing. The entrees were heavy on the salt. I thought it was me but when my friend didn't finish her meal, I asked the other friends and they had the same experience with their dish. It could have been an off night for restaurant. I'll be back again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Disappointing "N'Orlins" fare...MICKEYMICHAELSDined on 7/24/2014We expected genuine New Orleans-tasting fare; greatly disappointed. Its cat fish and other dishes aren't even close to Cajun or Creole-cooking. The spices were overwrought and fake in taste; the appetizers: salad was boring and the fried oysters small and unexceptional. We had to specially order bread--when it arrived the cornbread was hard and cold, and the other bread thin and brittle; the butter was changing colors. Worse were the desserts. Ordered peach cobbler. That, too seemed, fake. Cobbler was not deep-dished or even peachy; the crust was bland (more crumbly than doughy) and surely nothing to write home about. Ice cream scoop was tiny. Soul and Cajun cooks would be alarmed and disgusted by this poor excuse for New Orleans meals.Special Features:
- Leisurely lunchicecreamVIPDined on 7/23/2014I had a lovely lunch here with a friend on a weekday. The meal was well paced and we were not rushed, which was nice as we had lots to catch up on. We came in for the $24 3 course lunch menu but ended up ordering from the (pricier) regular menu. The salad, merluza, and peach cobbler were all delicious. The cocktails are pricey but potent. I would definitely return if in the area.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Delicious brunchScarletDined on 7/20/2014This place is a brunch favorite of mine. Even during the summer, when crowds tend to thin out in the City, they always seem to be packed with locals. I usually go for the egg dishes and I find that everything they serve up is fresh and flavorful. I'd recommend the soft scrambled eggs with chives/leeks/gruyere/corn bread, as well as the side of turkey sausage. They also have a nice selection of brunch cocktails. It would be nice if some of the sides offered separately were included with your meal (if only for some variety), but all things considered, it still qualifies as reasonably-priced in my book. I also like the lively atmosphere, even though the conversation level gets a little loud at times in the front room.Special Features:
- LOVED IT!NancyDDined on 7/20/2014First time dining here and it was fabulous! My daughter and I had brunch and the food was delicious. I had soft scrambled eggs, scrumptious! My daughter had poached eggs also yum! We shared ricotta fritters and turkey sausage. The fritters are a must have. The service was friendly and efficient. Loved the Bloody Mary's. Wish I could have had another! Can't wait to go back for lunch or dinner. Great find.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Favorite Brunch!KatyDined on 7/19/2014This is definitely one of my favorite brunch places in the city. Always on point. The biscuits alone are worth the trip. I usually get the soft scrambled eggs or the jalapeno grits. As far as drinks go, the sparkling acres is refreshing and comes in a pitcher to share with friends.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- great neighborhood spothunkyJewVIPDined on 7/15/2014as before, just really solid food. If you can't get into the trendy places around Greenwich, this is a really solid backup. You can usually walk in and find a table on Monday through Wednesday evenings (maybe even Thursday) anytime. The pork chop is really delicious, and the vibe is just super nice and chill. Kind of like ABC Kitchen but more genuinely homey and not conceited anthropologie.
- quiet for the areaazaleaDined on 7/13/2014This was not my first time but it was the first time that I was seated at a really quiet spot. It made the conversation really enjoyable and the dinner not an exhausting event as it so often is in this neighborhood where you have to shout across table to hear each other. Food, as usual, reliable. No super good but reliable.
- Never DisappointsXalaVIPDined on 7/9/2014Hundred Acres is a reliably delicious and welcoming restaurant on a quiet block of the village that extends below Houston on Macdougal. The menu changes frequently, but the black kale salad always seems to be on the menu, which is a good thing. I love their refreshing mocktails--a nice way to start off on a summer evening--and they have great wines by the glass as well.Special Features:
