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.

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...

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.

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....
