Acacia real food & cocktails - Permanently Closed Ratings and Reviews
We are so sorry to See Acacia close after many terrific meals. The steamed dumplings w/ harvarti, cashew sauce & a touch of wasabi are divine! (Albert if you open up again somewhere, they MUST be on the menu. ) This is one of the few restaurants with at least one quiet booth away from the bar and other noise where one can actually hold a conversation! But you can also get great sunset views at the windows if you like that. We had the bronzed salmon w/ mushroom risotto and pork schnitzel with mustard sauce - both with seasonal veggies -- just terrific! We followed Acacia from its first location in St Phillips to Skyline and will miss it a great deal. Thanks again for many wonderful memories!
Wonderful dinner at Acacia, will miss them when they close! Had to get in at least one more time to enjoy the duck for my birthday. This place was always the choice for birthday and anniversary dinners. Love the food, view and the blood orange creme brule! Best wishes to the owners. Thank you for many fine suppers...
Acacia has long been my "go-to" restaurant for special occasions. The food is consistently good and the service is always excellent. The food combinations are imaginative enough to give your taste buds a great experience. And the prices are fairly reasonable.
I'm so sad they are closing their doors in only a few more weeks.
Ordered Cioppnio companion had Salmon. My dinner was very good. Tasted her salmon and it was amazing. Tasty and seemed to melt in your mouth. I decided to never cook salmon at home again, my home version could never compare.
Incidentally, the server had recommended the salmon.
Acacia was, as always, excellent. Since they are closing soon, they are a bit short staffed and service was a bit slower than previous visits. Food was great- I had smoked duck breast that was terrific. The closure will be a loss to the Tucson restaurant scene.
We had a magnificent dinner, starting with our first course a mediterranean fritter, which was outstanding. My lamb was delicious, and my husband's salmon was excellent. And how sorry to read the next day that the restaurant is closing. We will miss Acacia.
My wife and I dined at Acacia recently for the first time. The experience was very positive. My wife had the tomato soup and scallops which she said were excellent. I had the Maple Smoked Duckling which was also excellent. I tried the by-the-glass Petite Syrah, which I did not find to my liking.
We would return and recommend it to others.
Been here before, years ago.
Returned on Valentine's Day.
Maybe it was because of the day but really disappointed. Food tasted like was prepped much earlier and menu was uninspired. Will say that server was very good!
Shame because I recall really liking it on prior visit.
We shared flash fried calamari for an appetizer. The calamari was great but the sauce was quite spicy - like someone wanted to just be different. I would have appreciated a good aoli sauce more.
I had breast of duck and it was tasty, although cooked rare and thus somewhat tough. We were warned by the waiter that it would come medium rare. It was rare. My wife had onion soup and it was great.
The service was just fine and the wine that our waiter helped select was very nice.
They gave me a complimentary dessert and it was a very nice key lie pie.
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here, and the staff was very nice in accommodating us with a nice quiet table and great service even though they were extremely busy because of a big event. The food was terrific - very fresh, beautifully prepared and cheerfully presented - a nice wine list, too.
We had a very enjoyable dining experience at Acacia. The food was delicious, the server was knowledgeable and the view of the city in the valley below was beautiful. We were celebrating a milestone birthday and received a complimentary dessert beautifully presented. We highly recommend this restaurant.
