    I had high expectations knowing the reviews and accolades of the chef at Acre. However, it was sadly disappointing. Beautiful building but the food was just sub par. Fresh and creative should not equate to peculiar and expensive. I will choose to visit other establishments in my future trips to Auburn.

    I had the ribeye which was very flavorful and cooked (rare) to perfection. Karen had the gulf shrimp and etouffe which was excellent. Our server, Walker, was outstanding.

    From the time you spot the restaurant, you know it's going to be good. The outside of the building is beautiful and the landscaping is nothing but vegetables and fruit! How amazing it is to see what you know you're about to eat. You can't get any better than seeing your food in the landscape of the establishment. The glass enclosed room is beautiful with gorgeous flooring. The inside of the entire restaurant is eye catching. To take everything in is almost exhausting - it's just beautiful! The staff is always courteous. Tables are ready and when you have a reservation, the restaurant does a great job at calling to remind you of the same. The food is impeccable. Lunch and brunch menu items vary from dinner which makes it one of those places you could easily dine at on the same day and not feel as if you're eating the same cuisine. I love how the favorites remain while other dishes change throughout the season based on availability of local vegetables, fruits and herbs. It's definitely a must-go and one of those places you should visit often as the menu changes.

    Always love Acre!! Favorite place in Auburn! Should have a made a special request for a table though because we were seated very close to the kitchen where my 90 yr old father in law had wait staff passing closely behind his chair all evening. Otherwise it was a great evening with great food and service!

    We reserved our table through Open Table. There was no indication that New Years Eve would be a fixed menu. Seems Acre called and left a message to that effect but with no details. We did not get the voicemail (glitch) so it was a surprise when we arrived. Food was excellent but even so the price .... $75 per person ... for a single biscuit appetizer....... soup or salad ( either/or --no choices ) ..... tenderloin, or snapper and choice of two desserts with a complimentary glass of champagne was al bit pricy ....... a cup of coffee with dessert added $3 per person Had I know the menu selections and prices before arriving I would have changed my reservation. Great quality, very good service but even so ..... price point was a bit high for what was given

    My husband and I visited Acre Dec. 31 for an anniversary lunch. The food was as expected—fabulous and fresh. We had a salad with grilled salmon, tomato bisque, and grilled cheese; then, we topped it off with bread pudding and Madagascar vanilla bean ice cream. Yum!

    Great experience. Food was terrific and prepared just right. The server was helpful in helping pair food and drink. She was knowledgeable about the menu and helped others make selections. I felt the menu was varied and all were appealing. Drink selections were spot on, lots to choose from, booze to wine to beer. Highly recommend!

    Girls night out at the acre! The food was delicious, we all had fish, were all happy with the presentation of the plate (and the plate itself! Locally crafted) and enjoyed every bite of it. And of course desert! Sharing a piece of Chocolate cake and Peanut butter cake each was a good idea 'cause although they tasted really really good, they filled the remaining space in our bellies. The waiter was attentive and (successfully) recommended the restaurants special dishes/drinks. I'll for sure go back!

    We drove from Atlanta to attend a performance at the Gogue Performing Arts Center. We always allow extra time for the Atlanta traffic— but it was not enough time on this day. Worse than usual traffic! When it was clear that we would be almost 30 minutes late for our reservation at Acre, I called Acre to see if we could still be seated. They were very kind and accommodating and said, “Of course!” It probably helped that we were a party if 2 and it was for a rather early dinner. But DO make a reservation, and DO call if you find you will be late. As it should be, the real feature at Acre is the food, most of it locally (maybe regionally?) sourced. It is delicious, of the highest quality, and creatively prepared. Some of the most delicious goat cheese available outside of France comes from up the road at Stone Hollow Creamery. I don’t think you can go wrong with anything on the menu. The only reason I did not rate It a Five Star “Value” is because it is a little expensive for Auburn. But so what. Go spend the money for a wonderful meal!
