New York, Bedell Cellars 2016
Very cozy however spacious dining room. Warm ambiance. And the food and cocktails were outstandiing! I'll be back.
Always a top notch experience
Overall it was ok - but I believe it was overpriced. Service and ambience are really good, but that doesn't justify the high price of several dishes in the Menu and the execution of the dishes.
Acme never disappoints
Food and drinks were amazing. I think certain foods are overpriced but the drinks 100% worth the cost. The bartender provided amazing service but our waiter was pretty pushy. We were only looking to get a bunch of apps to share and he pushed entrees and didn’t seem pleased when we weren’t ordering more than apps nor when I didn’t want a second drink (I had work early the next day). I would go back, but probably only for a special occasion.
I enjoyed the food. I had the special which was spaghetti with a lobster and crab sauce. The service was not to my liking. We were encouraged to order our entrees at the same time as the appetizers - for the convenience of the kitchen. I found this antithetical to the idea that the dining experience for the patron was the primary focus. At the price point, one is definitely paying for the experience.
Great food, service and atmosphere!! Seating space is little tight though.
LOVE this place, service always good, food always good and great place to be, never been disappointed
We had the restaurant week menu and it was delicious and very good value. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Will definitely be back.
Food was overly complicated, tried too hard with odd combinations, just wasn’t great.
It was nearly empty at 8pm on a Wednesday. Food was average but expensive. Service was lazy. Expected a better experience and was let down.
Acme is one of the very few places I can say I have absolutely no complaints
The restaurant and bar ambiance was great. Lots of fun and cool drinks. It was a bit loud but it is a smaller place. There is a lounge downstairs that as we were leaving had a long line so we would love to go back and check that out. Overall cool place prices were not bad service was good food was ok.
Had a great time here and the ambiance is perfect for a group meal or special event! There were 5 of us and we split a few rounds of appetizers, all pulling away from the table full and pleased with the entire evening. Loved the Spicy Octopus salad and the Bone Marrow!
Gorgeous restaurant with a really romantic vibe. The service was very slow, we waited over 30 min for appetizers to be brought out. The appetizers were all delicious and set the tone for an exciting dinner. However, the main course and desserts were not great. Turned out to be an extremely expensive and underwhelming dinner.
Fun and lively ambience with incredibly tasty food! We ordered several appetizers and an entree for sharing. The pastas were delicious (cacio e pepe and duck ragu), and the chicken kiev was inventive and well cooked. Service was excellent, and I enjoyed my free cocktail from my Yelp check-in! Loved our girls night out at Acme!
The place to go if you want diner food for Eleven Madison Park prices.
Excellent service - very good food!
Would not go back, food is overpriced
Trendy atmosphere, good music
I got the steak frite with chimichurri sauce and fries it was great and drinks are good too!
Really bad service. Made a reservation for six. Through out our dinner i had one drink and that was what i ordered from the bar while i was waiting for our table. Asked the waiter 3 times for drinks still never got it. Manager was notified by me however she was very condescending and she made me feel like i was wasting her time. I was very upset that i did not check the bill and later i realized they actually charged for the drinks they did not even served.
Lost 6 customers who live in the Neibhor hood.
Hot appetizer was overpriced at $20 for essentially mac and cheese. Food tends to be heavy with cream, dairy on even vegetables.
I’m sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy the Cacio e Pepe. Please let me know if you would like to join us for dinner during your next visit to NYC; we will make sure you get to try our dairy-free options and lighter dishes. Sincerely, Kat Bartlett, General Manager
We had a bad experience in this restaurant. We asked if we could have the table in the edge. They told us this table is reserved for 5 People. After one hour two people were getting this table. The food was ok but not special.
The whole evening a cook from the kitchen was running thru the restaurant in his dirty outfit..
Hi Anna, I’m sorry the table you asked for was unavailable - parties do often decrease in size upon arrival, which is most likely what happened that night. Please let me know when you choose to join us again for dinner, so we may provide you with a better experience. Sincerely, Kat Bartlett, General Manager
Great hostess, bartenders, and waiters. The tomato tartar was awesome. Will definitely come back!
Hi Alex, So glad you enjoyed everything! Thanks for choosing to spend your Friday at ACME. We can't wait to have you back, and thank you for the kind review. Sincerely, Kat Bartlett, General Manager
The team at ACME do a superb job and we love eating here - the duck is to die for - a great place to eat in NYC
We're so glad you enjoyed the duck! Hope you can join us again soon for dinner. Sincerely, Kat Bartlett, General Manager
Waiters over attentive. Every single dish was over salted. Wouldn’t recommend.
I'm sorry to hear that your dining experience went this way - please reach out to me directly if you would like to join us again, and hopefully we can make up for your last visit. Sincerely, Kat Bartlett, General Manager
El lugar esta padre ! Tiene una luz tenue y maderas que lo hacen bastante acogedor ! Pero la comida, por lo menos la que nosotros pedimos , fue mala. Esperaba una cocina más elaborada para el precio de los platillos! Creo que esta muy caro para lo que comes, honestamente creo que en Nueva York hay muchas mejores opciones para gastar tu dinero ! Lastima porque el mesero fue bastante amable. Lo mejor del lugar es un bar que está en la parte de abajo, pero cenar en el lugar no te garantiza el acceso al bar, así que da igual. Debut y despedida
Very nice dinner - the duck was amazing
We're thrilled you enjoyed our new duck presentation! Hope you can come back to join us again soon. Sincerely, Kat Bartlett, General Manager
Great gastro experience in NYC. A place with energy, great food and great service.

Front of house staff was SO nice but waiters and table help were very unfriendly and borderline rude.
Thank you for coming to join us for dinner, I'm so glad you enjoyed our menu & we appreciate the review! I'm sorry to hear about the experience with your server. Please feel free to reach out, we would love to have you back in to make up for your last visit. Sincerely, Kat Bartlett, General Manager
The food isn’t amazing but he ambiance and service (especially the hostess) was great!
Thank you for the kind words regarding our staff! Sincerely, Kat Bartlett, General Manager
Great dinner, great server, extremely nice ambiance
Thank you for joining us, so glad you enjoyed your experience! Hope you choose to visit again soon. Sincerely, Kat Bartlett, General Manager
We had the restaurant week prix fixe. An interesting appetizer with peaches and mozzarella was slightly marred by unripe peaches, but it was an interesting flavor combination (price tip oil?), and I would order it again. Short ribs with salad excellent. The pavlova for dessert was very interesting (deconstructed) and flavorful, though the pineapple upside down cake less successful than my mother's. The wine pairing gives access to an interesting list, including a Sauternes with dessert. Overall good and interesting food at a good value. Service was excellent. The décor is pleasant.
Thank you for joining us during Restaurant Week; I'm glad you got to enjoy the wine pairing as well. We look forward to having you again for the next RW (or sooner)! Sincerely, Kat Bartlett, General Manager
I hate to write this as I’ve gone to acme every time I visit NY, sad to say it’s not what it was. I should’ve known when reserving a table and found all the times were available to reserve. Hope they find their way back to greatness.
Don’t expect to get full from the meals. I would go for the taste and experience because the branzino was simple, but done right.
Very nice ambience and vibe. Service was perfect and really enjoyed our dinner there - highly recommend
It’s so warm in the restaurant that it might it almost impossible to enjoy our meal. The food was average. Way overpriced for the value. If I’m paying $19 for a cocktail, I expect it to be good
We had a great dinner - excellent food and service
