Acacia of Lawrenceville
Reliable as ever, never disappoints after 15 years or more going there. We might go even more often if the menu was updated more regularly.
We are regulars at Acacia, and we have never been disappointed with both their food and service. Each time we dine there, we find a new dish. This time, it was swordfish on a bed of vegetables and orzo, plus crab-stuffed zucchini flowers. The chef prepared a squid ink sauce, which was truly delicious. This is a great restaurant all around.
We dined outside. The service was outstanding and the food was beyond our expectations. We were celebrating a family birthday and the wait staff made it very special. We would definitely return and we highly recommend it. Noise level a bit high but they accommodated us by honoring our request for outside seating.
As usual, not disappointed with the food or service. Ribeye steak was grilled to perfection and the grilled portobello mushroom with sliced heirloom tomato was the perfect compliment to the steak. Service is always friendly, attentive and professional. Thank you Terry and Denise!
Food just okay; nothing special. Decor dated. Service poor, despite a near empty restaurant.
Menu had something for everyone....and had to make choices! Waiter did not know price of special....ordered anyways and delicious!!!
Knew it was a special occasion but did not offer a dessert for birthday. Surprised about that.
Would definitely return.
We enjoy getting together for lunch with friends here.
Wait staff was excellent. The chef was not happy with the scallops and would not serve them to us, three of the six ordered them. The staff quickly subbed us into other delicious entrees and gave us complimentary appetizers and desserts for the inconvenience. Patrick and Lauren were great. We had out of town guests who were very impressed with Acacia.
Very pleasant outdoor dining on a beautiful summer evening.
The quality of the food, its preparation and its presentation could all be summed-up in one word: outstanding.
Great meal for a local spot
We made reservations at Acacia for Father's Day after a concert at the Princeton Music Festival which was across the street. We were seated promptly even though we were about 30 minutes early. There were six of us and we brought our own wine. The waitress was fine but not terribly friendly. The bread was fair. The soups were either watery or tasteless. The duck was disappointing as were the steak and crab cakes. Lemon dessert was good but chocolate/espresso mousse was awful. There was hardly any water pressure in the Lady's Room which gives one pause. Never will we visit this overpriced place again.
Celebrated Fathers Day with a lovely dinner
We came late and they were very accommodating. Food was very good. Service attentive.
The rack of lamb was perfection along with the ricotta dumplings! I'm never disappointed with the food and the attentive, professional and friendly staff.
quiet and pleasent. good gluten free options. terrific service. it is a byob
I’ve some very good selections from the spring menu. This was the second time for the duck. I thought there was a bit too much garlic on the rice; otherwise, it was a very enjoyable experience.
Our server was perfunctory and brusque, possible because he and a busboy appeared to be the only staff when we had lunch. I fault the staffing rather than the server, who appeared to be doing his best.
Always a wonderful meal with unusual pairings and friendly service. Nice atmosphere for friendly conversation.
Our waitress was very nice. Unfortunately, our entrees took over an hour to come out. Food was excellent but the food took awhile.
Mother’s Day dinner but service was very slow. We waited close to an hour before our main entrees were served. Waiter was pleasant but no explanation given and restaurant was just beginning to get crowded. No more holiday dining!!!!
Food is always delicious and cooked perfectly to your order
First time. Very pleased with the dining experience. Will return
Pear salad was excellent and our server was friendly, professional and efficient.Great spot for a work lunch!
The food is fresh and staff are attentive. Great for business or special occasion dining.
we are regulars at acacia, this was a family gathering for my husband's 88th birthday. we all have different tastes and acacia always has something for everyone.
Lovely birthday dinner. My husbands favorite dining place.
Acacia is a wonderful restaurant. It is a chef-owner restaurant. Menu is good - broad and varies with the season. Food is very good and locally sourced. Service is very good.
Once again, a very enjoyable meal; with the winter menu winding down, one can always expect a great, new menu for the new season.
Perfect & delicious, as always - one of my favorites!
Excellent experience! We all enjoyed ourselves! Everything ordered was cooked to perfection!
Excellent food, prepared expertly just as you request. Good prices and BYO make it very hard to beat!
Very good service and the same for the food.
Consistently outstanding food (important, since they only serve food). Part of the charm is the opportunity to bring your own wine. This place never disappoints. I was thinking veal chop tonight, but it’s Friday in Lent, so I went with the salmon. Just outstanding!
Very good food, at reasonable prices, coupled with good service and BYOB is very hard to beat!
Very good restaurant to enjoy well prepared food and to meet in a quiet place .
Always enjoy meeting with friends for lunch here! Staff is friendly, food is varied and delicious, and they accommodate customized meal requests. We always enjoy our leisurely chats over lunch here.
Everything was flawless, from the service to the food! Will be back for the spring menu!
Ehh, it was just ok. I had the crab stuffed flounder special and my wife had the crab cakes. Food was warm but not hot. Plates were cold. Flavor was ok. Nothing special. Would expect more for the price. Won’t return but it’s not a bad place.
