Service above and beyond and yummy!
We enjoyed the upscale comfort food that we had at Acre. though we were late for our res (I called ahead as a warning), they gave us a cozy booth and let us linger long after we were done with dessert. Gracious and friendly staff!

Alittle pricey but good
Their food overall was good, especially their cheese plate. We had never been to an italian tapas place before and the menu was a bit confusing for a first timer.

1$ oysters are the best in
1$ oysters are the best in town. Food is excellent and always quick to come out of the kitchen. Staff is knowledgeable about the daily menu and the ever changing beer selection keeps me coming back. 5 star-A+ legit!!

ACRE is amazing
We liked this spot when it was Charlie's Ale House (a couple-few years ago), and were nervous when it changed over... but it was silly to be concerned! It's only gotten better as time has gone on, from the beer and wine list to the oyster bar ("Sip & Slurp" oyster happy hour from 5-7 p.m. on weeknights) to the menu (pork burger is awesome, as is everything else). The owner(s?) moved toward providing a "small plate" experience after the success of their Ombra Italian enoteca next door (serving "chichetti," like Italian tapas) -- which is also amazing -- but don't think for a second you won't leave satisfied... plenty of great food on your table at any given time! And, for beer lovers: I'm fairly certain all servers are Cicerone certified.

We enjoyed the service and the food. The food menu is somewhat limited. They have a significant selection of excelent wines and beers. Great service, our waiter was very helpful.

Beer and great food
So much attention to detail here. They just tapped 30 barrel aged beers. Such a treat! Food is always excellent.

We went to Acre about 2 months ago for the first time on the recommendation of a friend and it has become one of our go-to new favorites (we're headed there tonight for our 4th or 5th visit. We love the small plates - the cheese curds are unbelievable! And we are very comfortable going with our kids, who, being budding foodies themselves, always love going.

We will be going back
A very friendly and comfortable restaurant. Our waiter provided just the right amount of attention. The food was interesting, delicious, and satisfying. We had a long, enjoyable meal.

Great neighborhood place
Loved the oysters! Great beer selection, too. Don't forget to try the fried smelts with alio dip. Friendly waitstaff.

Chicago Neighborhood Gem
Our family went for my wife's 50th birthday and was very happy that we did. Our waiter was excellent checking in regularly, but was not obtrusive and offered honest and very good recommendations. The small plates were diverse, attractive, and excellent. The selection of entree's were also diverse with something for everyone. For kids there was an "upscale" burger and mac and cheese. For those wanting a bit more the menu ranged from a cornish hen to sturgeon, to a very good pork tenderolin. Food, including dessert, was very good. It's a great choice to celebrate a family event or a date night, though would characterize this as a good value for money it isn't what I would call inexpensive either. We will go again and will recommend to others.

Farm to Table
Loved the healthy choices and I always feel better about food that is locally grown/farm to table. And it was delicious!

One of Chicago's better gastropubs
We have been coming here for years, and even when they divided the space in half the food quality has been excellent. The place has always been well-managed and the waitstaff has always been fun. Highly recommended.

I ate at Acre soon after it first opened and found it a disappointed. That has a few years back now, with they made the physical restaurant and the fact they it has had some staying power I decided to give it another try. Incredible improvement, the food was some of the best tasting food I've had in a while and the decor of the restaurant is much improved from the original state. I'll came back.
