What a GREAT find in Auburn and VERY close to the University. The perfect place to celebrate your child going to school and great grades. The food was UNBELIEVABLE!!! I love duck and this had to be the best duck I ever tasted!!! Great friendly service as well. Many wait people from the University so tip well....

The entire experience from valet parking to the perfect space chosen for a business dinner was absolutely well thought out and set the tone for my meeting. My partner was very impressed and plans on having many more dinners here, personal as well as business.

The cocktails were tasty, as was the food. My friend and I had an appetizer and split a salad and an entree. We were charged 4.00 for the entree split which was reasonable but also charged 4.00 for splitting a 9.00 salad. The cost of the salad split seemed a bit much. I would have expected one charge for splitting the meal.. My friend ordered a glass of cabernet without specifying and the 4 oz.pour was 17.00. Again, a bit high. That said, we enjoyed the meal and the ambiance and I would certainly recommend Acre.

The landscape and exterior was great, as well as the interior, food, and service. I had the snapper, and will I say it was the best I’ve ever had. My wife had the ribeye, it was cooked just as ordered and was in the top five of the best steaks she has ever had. I would recommend Acre as a top 5 restaurant in the state. Last but not least the complimentary valet parking was also a very nice attribute.

Food was great, very accommodating to special requests. My husband and I both had steak, I had the filet and he had the ribeye, very flavorful and the sides were good too! The atmosphere was very nice, unique and great for a nice dinner. We had the "butter me up" cake for dessert - it was the best part of the meal!

The restaurant is cutting corners to cover the loss from doing bottomless mimosas all those years (have stopped since). Not enough value in the experience when my $15 meal consists of ONE basic piece of French toast and a chicken breast. Utter waste and disrespect. Would NEVER go to this restaurant again nor suggest it to a friend. Cute ambiance but that’s about it.

We had reservations, but still got stuck in a corner near the kitchen. It was warm and not super comfortable. If I had known the other side was reserved for a private event, we would’ve chosen somewhere else. It was VERY loud, with a table of 50+ adults behaving like drunken teens. I was there with my husband and two teenaged sons for my birthday and we could barely carry on a conversation. When you pay $225 (before tip) for a meal, you tend to expect a classier vibe. We’ve been to Acre several times and the food never disappoints. However, the environment this time was more than a little disappointing.

We arrived at the Acre an hour and half early because picking up our daughter from an Auburn University Camp went quicker than expected. The hostess said it would take 30-45 minutes to accommodate us and she delivered on her promise. The food was excellent and the price was reasonable. We live in Atlanta and don't get to Auburn very often but we try to work a trip to the Acre into each trip. It is consistently excellent.
