Acme Ratings and Reviews
I always have an amazing experience every time I dine at Acme. The staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. The sommelier, Nicole, is extremely knowledgeable and really helped guide our entire dinner experience with great recommendations to go with our food. Our server Latina was very attentive and friendly . I definitely would recommend coming to Acme for the great service and fantastic overall food and wine experience. Will definitely be coming back soon.
Went for a girls get together for 8 people - we had a perfect round table. Atmosphere very New York sexy. Tables not too close together so felt private and also perfect level of noise for talking - unusual for New York! Star dishes included Caesar salad, ricotta, fried tomatoes, chicken under a brick, steak and broccolini. They also make a great espresso martini. Service couldn't have been better - I'll be back!
Great atmosphere and wonderful food. Had the Beef Tartar and Fettucine with Short Ribs. Beef Tartar had a very distinct flavor which wasn't too dominant. Very subtle and left enough room for the beef flavor. The fettuccine were perfectly al-dente, the short rib sauce to die for. Will come back soon!
I expected more. I spent my bday last year and I loved it... That's why I wanted to come back. But the experience was very disappointing! The host was not nice, the waiters treated us poorly and on top of everything we weren't allowed to go downstairs! So sad...
Our main course was delayed by over an hour and neither the service staff nor the management seemed concerned or gave a damn. Had to send the scallops back when they eventually came because they were too salty to eat. When the bill was presented we were told off-handishly that they took off two appetizers to make up for the problems, in an attempt to placate us. Sad actually, because the appetizers were quite delicious.
We were offered a nice corner table but later realized how cramped their seating is. If anyone set next to,me, we would be bumping elbows with other diners. Tables are ridiculously cramped. Service is warm and friendly. Drinks are very strong and for serious drinkers. Mojito was not well done, watery and not balanced. Portions are very small and we are not big eaters. Asparagus was delicious. Artichokes were good. Broccolini were just ok. Mushroom risotto was good but also very small. We skipped dessert as we felt the host kept looking at all the tables, checking who is finishing dinner. We felt rushed for that reason. We also didn't like the cramped seating.
Very nice place -- quiet enough to really talk, and very close to Public Theater. We went for lunch before matinee. Food was excellent and done the way we asked but very expensive for Saturday lunch ($145 for 4 entrees, 2 cocktails, and extra fries...)
However, I'd recommend Acme. Lovely, attentive staff who didn't make us feel rushed out, comfortable space between tables, no noise clanging off hard surfaces (a la Smith...)
Truly outstanding service, creative and delicious food, beautiful plating, an amazing sommelier and list, great drinks, and authentic creme brûlée. Really enjoyed our dinner for four and the 3 hours of conversation. All of the staff were friendly and happy to talk: Chef, bartender, waiter, sommelier.
A visit to Albany.
No offense to Albany, but pained to say that dinner felt like a freaky trip out of town. From the first moment's encounter with a knot of robotic front of house staff you know it's going to be purely prefuctory. It's understood that since its overhaul acme isn't a breakout food destination, but the serious lack of effort in the kitchen, as well as in the dining room, was a still a surprise. Silly, and slack, mistakes can be overlooked in a place of authentic simplicity, but in a place that aches of 'faux' (does anyone really drop $250 for a bottle of red here?) you are left to look longingly for the exit.
Better to wait for the next incarnation, to see if this 'poor relation' can be fully brought into its family of stalwart restaurant successes.
