- 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:
- lovelyOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 8/15/2014Food was delicious, drinks were yummy and the service was great. The back room is charming. It is a perfect local gem.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:
- Was a nice brunchDivineJudge1Dined on 7/6/2014Was a nice brunch. The menu was not too complex and the food was good. I do recommend this place to anyone in that area. Just make reservation to avoid any wait. I also would try not to be seated outside in the back.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 7/5/2014I loved the relaxed ambiance of the restaurant. We started with the tomatoes, kale salad and cucumber soup. Everything was excellent! For our main courses our table ordered the chicken, steak, pork chop and vegetable dish. We loved all of the dishes and can't wait to go back and try more.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- DeliciousOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 7/5/2014Attentive service, unique favors! The goat cheese, bread pudding, wilted lettuce & egg dish was wonderful, as was the gumbo.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- kwissVIPDined on 7/3/2014The place still has great drinks and potential. The food has never been the strongest feature. From this visit it's not improving.
- Yum!JuneauEatsVIPDined on 6/30/2014In a word---delicious! The flatbread appetizer was fabulous and the corn bread in the bread basket was a terrific treat. There are lots of options to select from in regard to entrees. I had the catfish and my friend had steak. We both cleaned our plates! However, we did save a smidgeon of room for dessert and shared the strawberry shortcake and it was outstanding and well worth the calories! I have been here several times and every time it is consistently great.Special Features:
- We loved it!TeresaDined on 6/29/2014I did not know the place and was so shocked at how great it was. Can't wait to return.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Amazing dinner in NYCJasonDined on 6/28/2014Dined here with my wife on a recent trip to NYC. The "mocktails" were perfect for her (as she is pregnant) and the food was absolutely amazing. This was THE BEST meal of our entire trip. The excellent service and lively bar scene only added to our enjoyment. Entree proportions are generous and meals are reasonably priced. We got the apple pork and breaded catfish plates. Would absolutely recommend those (although we were told the chef makes a mean gumbo and is from Louisiana, as are we).Special Features:
- Great Food, Great Servicelovefood2muchDined on 6/28/2014I found this restaurant for my friend's birthday brunch. It was great and the service was wonderful! I will definitely go back to this place!Special Features:
- Great SoHo FindYodiVIPDined on 6/27/2014We have always loved Cookshop. This sister site is just as good. Good food and very attentive servers. Just beware that it can be quite loud.Special Features:
- So glad I went here!MargDined on 6/26/2014Very kind wait staff and great French fries. Got a table in the back and it was a great feel in the green house feeling back room!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- GailVIPDined on 6/21/2014we had a fantastic meal here food and service was PERFECT!!Special Features:
- nice spot in the west villagehunkyJewVIPDined on 6/21/2014So you know there is this class of restaurants in New York that are really GOOD -- like solid -- but not super outstanding or anything. This class of restaurants, by the way, would probably exceed or meet the quality of any top restaurants in any other city in the US – so we're talking about good food, but you know you're in New York so we're spoiled. Well Hundred Acres, like its cousin Cookshop, is definitely in this class. If it's a wednesday and you're tired and you want some good food that you don't have to wait over an hour for while staring at the seamless app doing nothing, and a nice vibe not too far from your pad, go to hundred acres. But for not too much more money and a bit more planning, you can get better food in the city.Special Features:
- Loved it13nyack13Dined on 6/21/20145 stars all around. food was perfect, wait staff attentive but didn't hover... noise level was fine... we live in the burbs and it was great to be in a place with some energy... we could still hear fine (and I am sensitive to overly loud places)... had a drink at the bar before dinner and the bartenders are great too... can't say enough good things...Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great cinnamon rollsnousmangeonsVIPDined on 6/21/2014I've dined here a few times and normally love it but this past weekend, I took my family there for brunch and was a bit disappointed with the level of service. The waitress was not that friendly or helpful (like she'd rather be elsewhere) and service was slow. The cinnamon rolls was as usual amazing and everyone loved them. The deviled eggs were expensive and frankly just mediocre. But I think everyone enjoyed their main courses.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
