Acme hosts a variety of private events in both the restaurant and the downstairs venue. We have selected ACME’s signature dishes and created several Prix Fixe options which are served family style.View Private Dining Details
I've been to the restaurant Express and enjoyed singing at the bar. I had a drink while waiting for my table - the wines sadly were uninteresting and the bartendress quite perfunctory. After moving to a lovely table our server was very well versed and spent time reviewing the menu. Sadly the highly recommends halibut was overlooked - both orders . The octopus was gorgeous- but the accompaniment was so salty it was inedible. Big bonus points the chef came to the table to apologize as well as remove from bill. The management team was visible but seemed to be in a fog walking by tables but no one checking in. I would go back but was expecting more
Food is TOO heavy!!! Too oily. Not a place I would go to again. I feel like taking lipodor after this meal.
Great Venue, Been here many times never disappoints. the only issue i found was when the waiter drop a bunch of plates, which it happens at every place but still he should be careful specially in a slow night.
The food was delicious and there is an energetic bar scene. The service needs to improve.
Went there to celebrate a birthday. I can conclude that food was just ok, nothing special. Mainly Italian dishes but with a spicy and some other twist which didnt really work for me (Risotto should still taste like a Risotto) So many other awesome restaurants in NYC for the same price.
We were completely blown away with the amazing food and service at Acme. I can't wait to go back the next time I am in the city. The wine list is outstanding! From beginning to end we loved our experience.
Great place. Really good food well executed. First rate service. I really enjoy Acme. One of the best finds in the neighborhood
Lovely setting, very romantic with candlelight etc.
Food was delicious, drinks are a little pricey, but as to be expected.
I frequent this restaurant for the good, inventive food; attentive, friendly wait-staff; and good wine list, ranging in price from moderate to expensive.
Hostess didn't check us in on arrival so we waited over 45 minutes for a table. Did get 1 round of free drinks as result but who knows what would have happened if I hadn't been proactive in figuring out mistake!
Everything was fantastic,I always enjoy my experience at Acme. The service is exceptional, the crowd is lively & the food is wonderful. Favorite of the moment is the Butternut Squash app. Not to be missed.
If your idea of a great Sunday brunch is someone elses kids running up and down the length of the restaurant with a raised voice.......and a staff unwilling to do anything about it.....then this is the place to go.
But if they opened "brunch" as a place for children then they should warn the adults who desire a civilized environment for brunch not to come
My wife and I. Anne for our date nite befor Angelika theatre. We had a great time. Even though we were 40 minutes later than our reservation we were seated quickly and given service immediately
We started with a non alcholholic drink and a glass of red wine with the chicken liver pate appetizer. It was very rich and creamy. We then had pastas... one with lamb Ragu and one with cockles in an angry tomatoe sauce. Both were excellent although a little small on the portions. Overall it was a very cool downtown vibe in the restaurant with soaring ceilings and a lot of wood detail.
We would come back if the occasion merits it
This place is horrible, the service is not friendly!!!!!
Food is not brilliant, they have no respect for their paying customers. They didn't let our 6 pax party into the Club after dinning there because it was too crowded. Absolutely unacceptable
Was rushed out around 745 on a 630 reservation
Second time here, really enjoyed it. pasta was great, get the cauliflower appetizer. Recommended by our waiter, it was phenomenal. Will be going back again. Lorem ipsom doler note lorem ipsom doler
Great food, service is good but even though we made a reservation and the dining room had open tables, we were sat near the door on a cold winter day. Oh well.
Overpriced for the food quality. It is good but not worth the prices.
Intimacy level is limited for a romantic dinner.
Wonderful in every way, one of the best meals in town.
I liked the bar and the room but food was ok not something I'd make a bee linebacker for
Muy lindo ambiente. Tranquilo. Muy buena música. Y muy ricos platos.
Had a great meal at ACME. Food was excellent as always, and the wine list has a good range, albeit somewhat limited for choice at the lower-mid price ranges. Staff were all fantastic.
Great food, varied menu, was great for pre-holiday gathering.
Incredible dining experience! Can't wait to go back and try even more!
Food wasn't great. All the entrees were very good. The cheese & truffle special was really disappointing. The chocolate cake we had for dessert was overdone and burnt from the bottom. The server didn't charge us for it, but didn't bring another one out either.
Servers were friendly, accommodating and helpful!
Love the ambience downstairs.
Came here on a Thursday night with a reservation for 5 then 6 then down to 4 people. The restaurant was very accommodating with all the changes I had made days leading to the dinner with friends.
We arrived and the place has a very warm and cozy feel to it and I guess the dim lights, holiday decorations and tea lights help set that scene. The service was excellent; our server was very attentive and patient with us. He never rushed us on anything which is a huge plus when you're with friends who are trying to catch up.
The food was yummy and the portion was perfect!
Will be back to see what the lounge part of the restaurant is like...heard it's fun!
Although we were late arriving they had held our table. We had a great evening with excellent food and wine served by knowledgeable friendly staff. When next in New York we shall make a point of going again.
The appetizers were delicious. However, some members of our party were disappointed at the lack of vegetarian options on the menu. Additionally, the NY Strip steak was a bit underwhelming (the exterior was a bit too charred). Overall, the decor and environment was nice, and the service was great.
trendy vibe-- not in a hipster way, but in a fancy and cool kind of way. beautiful holiday decor, cozy seating. we sat preeeeetty close between the tables on both sides of us, but not too loud to have our own separate convo. and the food was OH-SO-GOOD.
Best steak in a decade. The BBQ guy at the street fair told us about it. He was right!!
been there the last 2 Tuesdays (prior to Public Theater) and this time with friends. Love the chicken, had it twice. Also lovely salad. Terrific wait staff, and friendly service. lovely room. Great food, place, ambience.... what else can you need?
Had to wait almost 30 minutes for our table :(
Was exactly what I wanted
Not too noisy
Good fairly priced food
well, here's how good it was: we will be back next week again. Great local gem, and if you are going to the Public, highly recommended
Food is delicious and interesting. Not the kind you would cook at home. Wonderful vegetarian sides which are large enough to share with a table of 5. Wine by the glass seemed less expensive than by the bottle. Extensive expensive wine list.
Can't wait to go back. The experience was casual but chic. Goodfood nice ambience and great wine.
Great for Public Theatre but they open at 6 so best for performances beginning at 8 otherwise rushed dinner if earlier shows ...very original menu and all prepared well. BUT There was no notification of chilis in the meatball dish and many people cannot eat spicy food. also alcohol beverages overpriced at $17 for martini or glass of pinot noir -
Absolutely fantastic! The food was out of this world! Great service too!
FYI - request main dining room. The hostess tried to seat us next to the front door and we waited an hour and 45 min for a table in the main dining room before we left to eat elsewhere. "We can't guarantee anything will come up". Also the bartender made a snarky comment about our order that he said a little too loudly to another bartender so we didn't really feel welcome/apt to spend on a big dinner there after that. I've been here before and the food is excellent but this time wasn't such a good experience.
Had not been back to Acme for some time so was delighted to see the menu changes and much friendlier staff than last time. Was worried about the noise level for my group, but seating at the front of restaurant in the booth was way quieter than the main room. We thought the food was great and inventive. A very hip place that the un-hip can enjoy with pleasure.
