Really good, beautifully appointed. High quality food, decor and wait staff. Parking is an issue, we avoid places with valet parking, so there's that, but it is available for those who use it, be prepared.

After driving 45 minutes to get to this top rated restaurant, We were disappointed in the overall experience. Even though we had a reservation, we were seated in a doorway with heavy traffic. While our waiter could not have been nicer the delivery was slow and he kept saying our food was on its way ...for 45 minutes. The highly touted Cornmeal breaded okra was a big disappointment as an appetizer. I expected pods and instead got small cut up pieces that were overly breaded and tasted frozen. This is billed as a farm to table restaurant and this item did not appear to be so. The remoulade sauce with it was very good. My wife had the Garden and Gun special with tomato soup and grilled cheese. Both were good but the soup was not hot and when asked to be reheated only came out Luke warm. I had the Original Brisket burger which was excellent. Bloody Mary was fare. We wanted a dessert but everything took so long we opted not to wait.

Be sure to check your check!
Meal and service were quite good, as expected from a top-end restaurant. Provided the server with gift card as partial payment, but the full gift amount was not applied to the check. A family member was not feeling well, and in my haste to leave I didn’t check the math closely; shame on me. Noticed the sizable error later and contacted management, who politely but firmly said the price I agreed to pay was the price for the evening. Since I left the gift card with the server I could not dispute. The manager is right from an accounting standpoint and can exercise his prerogative to insist on full payment; I signed my name authorizing payment. Acre will understand that I will use my prerogative to select a different restaurant in the future, one that offers full credit for gift cards to their establishment. Bon Appetite, caveat emptor!

We went there for a date, and it was a wonderful location for a date. They serve local food, and the servers know the mention to make great recommendations. If you have never been, I highly recommend going to experience the place. Additionally, they have valet parking, so I would recommend bringing cash to tip them.

Acre is one of our favorite places. Unfortunately, it seems it is that for a lot of people and makes it very hard to get a reservation. Our experience this time was very good. Food and service was excellent. Prices are a bit high but given the demand it is not surprising. We will most certainly return. The filet is the best for a main course. Don't forget the peanut butter pie which is their specialty desert. Awesome!

I have been to Acre several times and the food was always excellent. On this occasion, I met a friend that drove from Montgomery and I was disappointed in the food quality. I had the shrimp and grits . It was not the best I have had at acre (mediocre). Hopefully, this was just an anomaly.
