What else would you expect from a 4 Diamond, Iron Chef location? The menu and meal were creative, the service was outstanding, the view of the city is spectacular.
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!
It was our last dinner in Tucson, and are very sorry that Acacia will not be there next year when we return. We have loved all our meals at Acacia. Thank you.
This is a wonderful restaurant, but it's closing in May.
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...
We always enjoyed our visits to Acacia...so sorry to see its closing in May 2016. We are sad to see it go. Too many wonderful restaurants have closed in the Tucson market. Good luck to all!
Chef Albert Hall has always been a leader in fine dining in Tucson
It is a shame that this fine Tucson restaurant is closing. This has been a favorite special occasion place for years and it will be missed.
Our server was terrific. What a good piece of luck (I won $75 credit at a golf tournament) and a bad piece of luck (they close in May). The yellowtail was perfectly rare. So many restaurants overcook a dish like this.
Good margarita and underseaoned, boring food
Menu is balanced with choices. Portions are of reasonable size for those who are not BIG eaters. Waitresses are efficient and polite.
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.
The duck and lamb were prepared perfectly and the beet salad is a winner every time.
We had the fish and chips. The fish was superb, but the fries were limp and soggy, and not very tasty. The calamari appetizer was delicious.
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.
It was too dark inside the restaurant. The view is beautiful but the curtains were all kept closed and we missed the sunset....
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.
We celebrated our 50th Anniversary at Acacia last year. Picking the spot for our 51st was a no-brainer. Great food and beautiful setting. Thanks
Food was Good but not wuau. View was spectacular. Stayed in Tucson only for 2 nights., so can not compare it to other local restaurants. I'm basing my review by comparing it with restaurants in my home town, Miami.
Very clean food with interesting and uniques flavors
Just wanted to say thanks to chef Albert and his crew. For making a birthday extra special.
Acacia serves very fine dining in a little bit of a hidden away place in northeast Tucson. The Scottish Salmon and Lamb were very flavorful and the staff was helpful and eager to please.
Good but expensive. Great staff. Pleasant time. Excellent location.
The food is always great at Acacia and the wait staff is lovely. Varied menu and the spinach salad is very good..a standard for years. The wine list is mediocre, especially by the glass.
Food is good but not fabulous. We sure wish they didn't add cheese to EVERYTHING. The views at sunset are fabulous.
We like Acacia for the fish items. Scallop appetizer is perfect, same for the salmon. Always enjoy our visits.
Good food, inspiring cocktails, reasonable selection of wine helped me to have a good dinner alone away from family and business.
Chef Albert makes amazing food!! Everything on the menu is excellent!!
We had eaten here before and our experience was very good, again. Great menu and wine selections. Excellent service and views. You won't be disappointed dining here. Great for out of town guests.
Acadia was excellent in every way. I had the duck!!!
First time here in quite a while. Totally enjoyable dinner with my wife. Acacia's decor and ambiance is lovely, and there is a wonderful view of Tucson lights twinkling below. Food and service were both great. We need to go again soon!
A great place to have good food and service while enjoying Tucson City Views
Wonderful brunch options, attentive servers and relaxed atmosphere! We will be back!
