    I'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.

    A 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.

    This 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.

    I 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.

    Yummy 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.)

    This 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.

    Look, 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.

    This 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.

    I 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.

    I 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 out

    We 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!

    My 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!

    The 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.

    We'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.
