- Great Spot!OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 10/25/2014Absolutely delicious market-to-table fare, served in a warm, yet vibrant atmosphere. Prompt accommodation of a large & varied group..... Something seasonal for everyone on the menu! Wonderful experience all round.Special Features:
- DivinePrincess7VIPDined on 10/25/2014Food delicious and accommodated my Gluten allergy---no problem. Ambiance is also amazing here. Service great. Love Hundred Acres esp in Autumn and Winter b/c so cozy and lovely.Special Features:
- Nice Ambiance, Okay FoodOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 10/25/2014I really enjoyed the ambience and the drinks. The food was just meh. It wasn't bad, but also wasn't great for the price.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIPDined on 10/25/2014I've had brunch and dinner here once before. The food is delicious and the service was great the first two times, but when I dined last time it was not good at all. The music didn't fit the space...I love hip hop but with a farm to table place it just doesn't fit. The service was horrible. My friend and I were waiting for a table, we couldn't transfer our bill and had to close out when the hostess told us our table was ready. I'm not sure if she forgot about us, but I had to go back and ask her about our table. We closed our tab at the bar to move to a table and the hostess did not help carry the drinks or plate of food we were eating at the bar.
- AMAZINGOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 10/24/2014A group of friends and I had dinner here last week and it was perfect. They put us at the big round table in the back corner, which was great for having a conversation. The food was superb. The chicken liver mousse, catfish, deviled eggs and gumbo were all out of this world. The best thing was probably the house-made agnolotti, totally melts in your mouth.Special Features:
- Hundred MiraclesLouisianaDined on 10/23/2014This reservation was done on a whim, in which case you have a 50/50 chance of excellence or disappointment. What we experienced was a 100 per cent dining experience of excellence. The food was absolutely delicious and that pimento cheese is some of the best I ever ate, and that fried catfish was just as good as home, and I am from the deep south, and I know this food better than most in New York. We will be back and i am planning on taking business lunches and dinners there - the host was most commodating and kind.Special Features:
- Great Lunch SpotmaribethDined on 10/22/2014This neighborhood gem offers great lunch entrees and sandwiches. The produce was very fresh and the "unfussyness" of the food was wonderful.Special Features:
- Lovely SpotDirtyMartiniDined on 10/12/2014Warm inviting and great food. Good combo of rustic chic , modern art, and fabulous natural light. Well done.Special Features:
- Our new favoritepaprikajVIPDined on 10/10/2014We love the Southern inspired menu, the comfortable decor, the friendly service and the delicious dishes. I love the grits! It is a perfect lunch spot but we would love to try it for breakfast or brunch too.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- DeliciousAmandaDined on 10/4/2014Even on a Saturday afternoon when it was pouring outside, this place was packed! Server was friendly and had good recommendations for the menu. Food was delicious and great portions. Can't go wrong with the classic bloody mary.Special Features:
- Something missingkeenerVIPDined on 10/3/2014I was ready to give Hundred Acres a good review until we got our main courses. The restaurant was busy, service attentive, ambiance comfortable and we enjoyed the nicely spiced hushpuppies appetizer. My son and I each ordered a fish main dish (catfish and merluza - a whitefish I had never heard of), both of which sounded (and looked) delicious. The combination of other ingredients seemed really interesting, but neither had much flavor. I had to ask for pepper, which I rarely add when dining out, and it didn't help much. The third dish, a pasta, was quite ordinary as well, although given a pop of flavor with dried cherries. With all the other restaurant options in the area, I don't think we'll return to Hundred Acres.
- Business lunch for foodiesSAWSAWSAWVIPDined on 10/2/2014Yummy meal. Shrimp Po'boy was tweaked in interesting ways. Would have preferred salad to fries (although they were good) - I should have asked. My client had a really good fish dish. (The "cod" according to our waiter although it wasn't called that.)Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Consistently GoodTooManyRestaurantsVIPDined on 10/2/2014This is a reliable neighborhood place that I've found particularly good for business lunches -- not too noisy even though the tables are close together (not atypical for most NY restaurants). Food and service is always good and the prices are acceptable, even if you're not on an expense account.Special Features:
- Wonderful experienceOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 9/28/2014The five of us all selected different entrees and each one was delicious and well-prepared, all with great depths of flavors. Hanger steak and gumbo were standouts. Appetizers and desserts were superb and our waiter, Aaron was a delight.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always a good time. Nice and homey.LAOwDined on 9/28/2014Never a miss with Hundred Acres. The perfect neighborhood spot. Great for families, brunches and late-night drinks.Special Features:
- 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:
- Fantastic FoodmelmouDined on 9/25/2014Great service, food was just delicious. It was a little loud sitting by the bar, but the food and service made up for itSpecial Features:
- Loved Hundred AcresmezaustraliaVIPDined on 9/20/2014Really enjoyed the fresh seasonal produce. Service friendly and efficient and wonderful ambience. Highly recommend!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:
- Awesome!DappaDined on 9/18/2014Great atmosphere, outstanding food and excellant service!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Lovely week night dinnerOpenTable Diner Since 2010VIPDined on 9/17/2014The food was fresh and light - my aunt and I both love good food and left very happy.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- 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.
- Disappointingpnt225VIPDined on 9/14/2014This is one of those places that you're not sure if anyone likes. The food is odd and while some of it sounds good - the execution lacked in everything we tried. We didn't even have success with drink orders. The donut balls were uncooked in the middle. The standard breakfast entrees were just one thing off to not be tasty. I'm an adventurous eater, but this place is just mediocre. The restaurant itself is stunning. They just need new food.
- 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:
