Acorn is our favorite restaurant in Denver and we do a fair amount of fine dining. The food at Acorn is always inventive, fresh and cooked to perfection. It just keeps getting better. The kale salad should be the official dish of Denver.
Great restaurant! Interesting dishes and good atmosphere. Gods wine list as well! Highly recommend!
Great job of social distancing. Food excellent as always. Service just right. The 1/2 chicken was perfectly roasted. The agnolotti dish was scrumptious. And the kale salad is a showstopper.
So good ! We had the duck and it was perfect- the kale and apple salad is to die for lol
Great food and atmosphere
The menu is thoughtful and the food was delicious! We shared multiple plates and everything was great!
Great place to take clients. Wonderful chef.
Great! We love Acirn!
Fabulous every time!
The food was really terrific, especially the 1/2 chicken and ribeye and cornbread.
One of the best meals Inhave had in Denver. From apps to wine recommendation to dessert it was great. Attentive but not overbearing service with people that you could tell care about what they are doing. The decor fits the industrial vibe of the place but left a little to be desired in terms of overall warmth and comfort. All in all, just go.
What a delicious dinner! We had the steak, smoked salmon, and the green farro.
The food here is great! The service was severely lacking. The rap music didn't fit the environment and it was really loud, but we were seated under a speaker. It was our second time here, we love the food but hope they can get their servers trained to smile and anticipate your needs better as well as be better versed in what they have to offer.
Amazing food but drink prices seemed a bit high for what you get. Definitely a special occasion dinner.
Super on it with food allergies and the menu in general. Excellent cocktails, delicious food, and fantastic service!!
We have been to Acorn many times, but this time I was really disappointed with the food. It is supposed to be shared plates, so portions are generous, but the variety of choices dictated that we each ordered our own. Unfortunately, my choices were very, very similar, with an emphasis on whole grains. I generally really like whole grains, but because I ordered the tuna crudo and the grain bowl, they are very much alike and no one wanted to share! My friends liked their food, but it was not outstanding. I would try again, but with so much choice in that area, will likely try another place first.
Amazing! Food was excellent!
I had the kale salad, short ribs, and dessert and it was all very delicious. Definitely would recommend a visit here if you are in the RiNo area.
The service was outstanding. The staff was knowledgable, accommodating and not over bearing/constantly checking in. The food was unique, tasty AND filling. Will totally come back.
I didn't do my homework very well, and was surprised that the prix fixe Denver Restaurant Week option didn't offer any choices. Luckily one could order from their normal menu. I still opted to try the Restaurant Week menu and added the wine pairing.
Course 1: Heirloom Blue Cornbread with surryano ham and red-eye butter. The cornbread was really savory, and paired well with the salty ham and coffee-infused butter. This was paired with a nice Santa Barbara chardonnay (Tyler).
Course 2: Duck confit with green farro, field peas, baby leek and blood oranges. It was succulent and paired well with the Mendocino Ridge pinot noir (Drew).
Course 3: Golden honey cake with cacao nibs, mandarin oranges, and honeycomb. The cake was light and not too sweet. The orange flavored vermouth dessert wine pairing was pretty disgusting! (Mommenpop) I could smell it several feet away, and it smelled like Mr. Bubble's Bubble Bath from the 80's. Bob thought it smelled like the inside of a Grandma's purse. I actually took two sips and could not finish it.
Bob ordered the half chicken entree. It came over a bed of front range fungi, rainbow chard stems, bread and butter pickled radishes and something called RW roots. The chicken was extremely moist and Bob enjoyed it.
He also ordered the chocolate cake offering. The chocolate cake was actually kind of dry. There were large dollops of hazelnut mousse, chopped up hazelnuts and another accoutrement. I preferred mine and he preferred his. ;)
I have been dying to try this restaurant for years and finally made it during restaurant week. We of course diverted from the restaurant week menu and took all of the waiters suggestions. First of all the pork rinds are an absolute must. The grits are outstanding. For our main course we had the fish as well as the duck, both excellent choices. The restaurant is set in a very cool old foundry making us suburbanites feel extremely hip. Moderately priced... we kind of over did it with the wine so it would have been much more affordable if we had been a bit more frugal.
Every choice we made from the menu hit it out of the park. Especially the mussels and clams! Very helpful and attentive wait staff made our experience low stress.
Love this restaurant; it never disappoints. Ranks as one of the best in Denver.
I'm not sure why I waited so long to check this place out. The food is incredible. The amount of care and detail that goes into every dish is practically unmatched in this city.
Everything was great except for the service. I believe the waiter was having an off day.
Excellently prepared, inventive menu. Great service.
We hadn't been there in awhile but were glad to return. Food is consistently excellent. We loved the kale and apple salad, roast chicken, green olives (who knew warming olives could make them taste so much better) and dessert. I think the only miss was the grits, which had a weird texture due to the bone marrow. Service was great and it was nice to eat on the second floor and observe the kitchen do their stuff. Hoping we will get back there sooner rather than later.
This was our second visit, and the food was grossly overpriced, and uninspired. $4 for 4 slices of bread and butter was ridiculous, expect to pay roughly $20 for a tapas sized dish, you'll need 2-3 for 2 people. The food was good, but not worth it. There are a dozen restaurants just like Acorn in the Denver area, go to one of them.
Hostesses were very hostile and rude, food was way over priced and the people next to us had finished their food and were able to order again before we even were approached. Took 20 minutes to get seated and took another 20 before we just got up and left. Would not recommend unless you feel lile getting more food, after paying 130 for 2 people for food alone. Do not go here.
Loved the food, drinks, service and music! Great date with my love!
Amazing food and even better service! One of my favorite Denver restaurants.
This is our favorite restaurant in Denver. Food is imaginative and superb. Love the new upstairs space.
Who knew cabbage, grits and cornbread could be so damn good!!!
Meal is served family style (which is fine) but be prepared for an "experience" (i.e., 2+ hours for dinner).
The food was amazing as usual, but the service was incredibly slow and it was not addressed nor was anyone apologetic about it. This has been my go to place for a wonderful meal so hopefully this is not a trend.
Food was great and ambiance and drinks and food selection is exciting and pleasing. However, our waiter was less than attentive and terrible. However, the food and drinks made up for it.
Such an incredible dinner in a stunning environment! The staff were all knowledgeable and took gear care of us. It all made for a very special dinner out.
We intended on eating dinner here but decided there wasn’t anything on the menu that was really calling our name. So we quickly decided to have a glass of bubbles and a snack, which was great. We sat at the chefs counter because the table they had reserved for us was stuck between 2 other tables and we weren’t physically able to get to it without crawling over other guests laps. We were happy to sit at the empty chefs counter. Our experience went on. At the end of our glass of cava and snack we asked our server Ana for the check. I just happened to turn towards where she was printing our check in their open concept restaurant which was about 4 feet away from where we were sitting. I got to watch her smack talk to her food runner about how we hardly ordered anything and we were a waist of her time. I then watched him ask her “who?” She replied to him at “the chefs counter” then he looked directly at me. I was so turned off by this I could t wait to leave. Spend your time and money elsewhere!
One of the best meals we've had in Colorado, and we get around. Drinks were really good, each course was very unique. We'll be going back for sure. Only missteps were on service.
