    Another Sunday brunch at Acacia, another hot day in the shaded outdoor dining room. We missed the chicken and waffles entree, but our choices of eggs Benedict and salmon BLT were still delicious.

    Tasty, carefully prepared, beautifully fresh and appealing dishes pleasantly presented are hallmarks of this attractive dining space. No hint of pretentiousness or preciosity marred the comfortably attentive service which left us wanting for nothing as we celebrated our wedding anniversary. Loved it!

    We found the food thoughtfully and creatively prepared. We shared the calamari, my partner had the arugula salad with watermelon and feta, and I had the gnocchi primavera. Everything tasted fresh and was perfectly seasoned. We will definitely go back if we are in the area.

    Best Softshell crabs of the season! Sat outside on the patio, and road noise level is high with traffic passing by, inside is likely better.

    Acacia always has wonderful food. Great atmosphere indoors. Outdoors is pleasant, but you need to be able to tolerate the traffic noise, since it is right on US Route 206 - not something the restaurant has any control over, but important to know before deciding indoor or outdoor dining.

    Loved our family dinner. Our favorite appy, the calamari, was excellent as always. Also tried the tuna nachos and watermelon gaspacho. Yum!! Everyone enjoyed their entrees, which included lamb shank, squid ink pasta fra diavlo, NY strip cooked perfectly, and a lovely stuffed trout. Dessert was good too. Service was well paced not at all rushed. We always enjoy Acacia and look forward to next time

    Father’s Day price fixed menu had many choices for each of the 4 courses. We enjoyed the broccoli cheddar soup, and their signature pear salad. The pan seared salmon entree was delicious, as was the chicken and waffles. We appreciated Hermes, our server, who customized the eggs Benedict to accommodate my dietary restrictions. The lemon chiffon cake was a light end to our meal. We hope they will continue to have the outdoor seating—it is very enjoyable.

    The Father's day prix fixe menu was unexpected and a disappointment, $40 for 4 subpar courses is not what we were looking for, the food just wasn't at the usual level.. The service was wonderful although the busing of finished plates was a little slow. We will be back but will avoid special occasions.

    Outstanding as always. It’s only 4 stars for ambiance because of noisy truck traffic but that’s not their fault. If we’re able to, we dine here weekly and never tire of the food or service! The food is always freshly prepared and delicious! And the service by Hermes is second to none!

    was looking forward to a good easter sunday brunch. got seated at 1:39 pm. chosen orders for the 1st course, main and dessert given a few minutes after. appetizers came 2:09 pm. had the lamb meatballs, chewy and overcooked. salad was okay. was still hungry. the server was somewhat attentive but i think he forgot to follow up on our order for the main course because it never came until 3::14 pm. all that time waited just for steak, eggs and potatoes. how hard is it to make that? steak was dry, i was expecting better than what i can make at home but no. the eggs were okay. i had more fun with the creme brulee as dessert. mediocre restaurant. i will NOT go back. $300 brunch for a party of 6, that is wasted money on fair minus food experience. super slow. dont go here hungry. should have gone to a local diner instead. worse food experience.
