Great food, excellent service, reasonably priced, and a very attractive dining area.
A delicious brunch on Sunday with friends. Our outstanding server, Hermes, is always attentive and friendly. The entire staff makes diners feel special. Acacia is a Lawrenceville gem for brunch, lunch and dinner.
Well done! We had a very nice Sunday lunch and the outside space was great
The food is delicious and the patio seating is very nice.
Great little venue with friendly staff. The food was really excellent.
This used to be our favorite place but lately the food has been spotty. My pasta was cold and my husbands not so spicy Fra Diavolo was very spicy.
Hope they return to their old selves.
Calamari is always outstanding. Very disappointed in the gnocci. Arugula salad was OK but not special. We probably won't go back soon.
Wonderful brunch on the enclosed patio. The tuna nachos and banana french toast with berry compote were just fabulous! The server and busboy were very attentive although busy with several tables. Definitely will be back!
We went for brunch. The menu was innovative with some very interesting unique choices. I had the shrimp and grits, added an egg and some fried prosciutto and it was so tasty. The food was ample and delicious. Service was excellent. The pesto on the steak in the steak and eggs dish was absolutely delicious!
Noisy. No birthday candle in dessert as requested.
The food was great, fresh and to some degree inventive but the service was just ok. We found it to be a bit slow to bring the food out and then rushed to get the check paid.
The interior of the restaurant could use a facelift - it looks a tad dated with odd decor choices BUT we were happy that tables were properly spaced out properly.
Our server was especially good!
We enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing dinner with friends. As always the food is delicious!! The service & staff are friendly & efficient. Our requests for extra ice & butter were promptly fulfilled. All staff wore masks & tables were well spaced so we felt saw during this time. I highly recommend Acacia to anyone who appreciates good food in a pleasant atmosphere.
The management followed my reservation request to a T!
Three excellent meals; the salmon, the flank steak and a strip steak; plus the two desserts (olive oil cake and the blueberry crumble) were very good. The service was attentive but not intrusive (good training / experienced). A very enjoyable evening at one of our local favorites.
Sometimes one goes to a restaurant and portions are very small. Not here! My wife had a large whole trout and I had carne asada - both exceptional. We started with calamari friti, and again, the portion was generous and tasty.
Our server was knowledgeable, efficient, and added to our positive experience.
We sat on the terrace by route 206 and the only negative I could come up with is that there was some street noise from the passing traffic, the same challenge restaurants everywhere have as they open up outside due to COVID. That light noise did not diminish out experience.
We highly recommend Acacia...
We had a great experience. the outside seating was excellent as was the food and the service. Another great meal at Acacia!
Food and service is outstanding. Reasonably priced. One of the best restaurants in NJ.
The calamari was outstanding. The rest was good but not great. I’d try it again. Very pleasant place.
The salmon recipe is very good. This was one of a couple fish entrées i enjoyed here over the past month.
Very nice! An excellent brunch venue. Great food and service.
Delicious food and excellent service. Our grandchildren said that their hamburgers were the best they have ever had. The blueberry cobbler was amazingly delicious.
I've never been to Acacia and not had an excellent meal.
This was a good experience from reservation to the dramatic thunder/lighting/downpour exit. The woman who confirmed my change in reservation was professional, caring and just a delight! Per reservation was outside close to the building. She assured me it was protected from the rain (little did she know what the night would bring!). Our server was pleasant and professional. The two oyster lovers in our party were extremely happy with the evening's oyster special. My beet salad was delish. and could serve 2 (it's now lunch for me today!) The flank steak special was done to the requested wellness. This local BYOB offers a menu with something for everyone. The noise rating is not in Acacia's control. That is the noise of 206. It's so unfortunate. That said, Acacia's outside dining is one of the nicest in the area..protected and open.
Great restaurant with delicious dishes, wonderful service and the added bonus of ample parking. BYOB. Last night I had the best seviche I’ve ever tasted, along with the gnocchi entree, which was simply decadent.
Went with a friend to celebrate a birthday on a Friday evening. Food was delicious, service was excellent, and the noise level and ambiance inside was perfect for a good catch up conversation. I'd definitely go again! The fried green tomatoes, gnocci and fettucini pesto were particurlarly delicious!
Great food, generous servings! Helpful waitstaff. Look forward to coming back soon.
All four meals were very good; three had smashburgers and one guest had the pasta bolognese. Overall the service was very good though our server was not as good as others we have had in the past (maybe needs some more experience); the team members removing finished plates, baskets, utensils, glasses, etc. were energetic and effective.
The tables are well spaced and everyone felt comfortable and safe.
Good food, pleasant and patient service, nice atmosphere.
The vibe was great but the gnocchi was not good. The other people I dined with enjoyed their food and we liked the Oysters
The food & service was great.
have been there several times and always pleased with the menu.
may just be a one time event but food last nite was suboptimal. steak was tough as leather and difficult to cut even with the steak knife supplied and meat had no flavor.
fettuccini was dry and needed more sauce.
We had a wonderful Father's Day brunch. All staff were excellent, as was the food. Great food choices for everyone. Would definitely recommend Acacia as a lovely dining experience.
ACACIA is one of our most favorite restaurants. ALWAYS a great menu with delicious food and attentive service. We have to drive a long way to get there, but it is worth the trip. Father's Day menu was spectacular, and we had such a wonderful celebration.
Father’s Day brunch! Delicious from start to finish and great service!
The food is always excellent and the service is exceptional! Highly recommend!
As usual food and and service were perfect.
I thought very highly of the tuna preparation that was a special entrée of the evening. As for a starter, I love the fried green tomatoes (the second time I had them in two weeks). This is a fairly generous portion and if you have a chance to share with someone, by all means give it a try.
Noise level outside from the street makes eating inside the preferred location.
My favorite local restaurant! I highly recommend it.
