About

Located within the Source, a reclaimed 1880’s refinery turned new epicurean marketplace in Denver’s River North District, Acorn boasts Chef/Owner Steven Redzikowski’s eclectic, contemporary American cooking in an approachable, family-friendly format, alongside Beverage Director/Owner Bryan Dayton’s ingredient-driven cocktails, and handpicked selection of artisan wines and beers.

Similar to its critically acclaimed sister restaurant in Boulder, OAK at fourteenth, Acorn’s culinary and inspirational foundation is its oak-fired oven and grill, which produce a seasonal, ever-changing menu of craveable, family-style small plates and entrées. Guests will also find a selection of favorite dishes from the menus at OAK.

Steven, Bryan and their team at Acorn are proud to be serving Denver, and look forward to welcoming you.

We sat by the cooks & got to watch how things were prepared. It was a lot of fun. We shared a bunch of dishes & all were delicious.

It says something wonderful about your restaurant when the vegetarian dishes are as exceptionally tasty as the meat dishes.

We went here for our anniversary, I had heard about Acorn but had never tried it. We loved it, we had several of the small plates and the combination of flavors was amazing. My husband is a vegetarian and there were many dishes he could have. Nice cocktails and very good service. Loved that you could have flat or sparkling water. I would highly recommend.

Great time at Acorn, my second time there! We were celebrating my wedding, and the staff was all so welcoming and kind. Started the night with a champagne toast and ended with homemade chocolate-dipped marshmallows to celebrate. Great food and cocktails to boot!

I enjoyed my food, as did my friend. But the music was so loud, it made conversation very difficult. We left positive about Acorn's kitchen and service, but less convinced by the limited lunch menu and the noise level.

A great place for shared bites with some cocktails that can pack a serious punch. Two people probably need 3-4 plates depending on hunger. Everything we split had great flavor but one item felt a bit undersized and seasoned.

Acorn is a go to for me when it comes to business lunches. It's not too far from my place of business. What I love about it the most is the industrial modern vibe with creative foodie dishes made with locally sourced ingredients. This is definitely a progressive restaurant that appeals to the millennial generation but for the generation that came before them, it's also super cool! That would be my generation and I eat here all the time.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed dining at Acorn. Our waiter was prompt and polite and the atmosphere was pleasant. We ordered 5 different plates and all were well prepared by the kitchen.

We thoroughly enjoyed both the food and the service at Acorn! We marveled at the seamless, pleasant way all employees took care of the guests at Acorn. Love the sharing of food!! We tried thinly sliced raw turnips with a mild soft cheese and tangy sauce, broccolini with anchovies, pesto, and crunchy croutons, and the ribeye with fresh chimicurri sauce and baked/smashed/fried potatoes. Everything was tantalizing and made our tastebuds dance with delight.
