    When I’m looking for a memorable dining experience, it’s important that it starts before I even enter the restaurant. Acacia House has a visually stunning exterior, and once we we were seated, we were taken care of the entire night. The amuse bouche came shortly after we put in our meal order, followed by freshly baked bread. The truffle risotto melted in my mouth, and we also ordered the labneh dip, and sea bass. They also brought out a decedent mini chocolate cake because it was my birthday, such a sweet gesture. We were so well attended to all evening from servers coming by to pour water, to their knowledge of the menu, and even folding my napkin when I got up to go to the bathroom.

    Just horrible…. My boyfriend was served a dish that contained fish broth after me asking several times if it had any fish and he ended up getting very sick afterwards. Service took forever between dishes and I’m just utterly disappointed with the experience.

    Our party of four was unanimous -- Great lunch experience! First time back in a couple of years, but will return ASAP. Absolutely beautiful room, attentive service, and the food was extraordinary. Interesting timing to go at 11 o'clock for lunch as we were presented with both breakfast and lunch menus to choose from.

    We had the Thanksgiving Experience. The amount of food and quality was excellent. Sat outside was an amazing experience. The only downside was the service was not very good. We added the wine pairing and the timing on the wine with the food was terrible. We still enjoyed the experience and the food but they need to work on their service.

    The staff was very attentive but not intrusive. The Thanksgiving brunch menu was unique. The turkey, cranberry, kale, potatoes and spices were delightful. My eggs over east were perfect. My breakfast tea was whole leaf with honey on the side. My partner had the salmon Benedict which he said was excellent. We both slowly consumed our meals to enjoy the flavors. The hummingbird drink was perfect with the Salmon Benedict. A lovely experience overall. We will return when back in the area.

    Beautiful and elevated dinner experience with knowledgable and genuinely passionate service staff. We got the Epi Sourdough Bread & Tomato and Compressed Melon to start. Both were lovely but the standout was the surprise amuse-bouche of green chickpeas and goat cheese with a savory duck broth to sip. Very impressed with the layers of flavor created in the Ricotta & Walnut Cavatelli (my favorite dish of the evening). Duck Breast was perfectly cooked (med rare for my taste). Wine list was extensive but approachable. 10/10 would recommend.

    We made a reservation here due to the recommendation ms from other friends and to celebrate my sister’s 34th bday! Food, drinks, desserts, the ambiance, the spot, the table we got were phenomenal. We loved every single bite of our meals, although the risotto that my nieces ordered was very hard to eat. Good flavor but for a 13 year old girl it didn’t hit the spot. However I’m not complaining about the food at all. My concern is pretty much about the service! In reality, our server was very nice, the support staff and the hostess were very kind and helpful. But our server, even tho he was very nice, we saw him at our table very little. We wanted more drinks but we didn’t saw him until we finished our meals. To take the dessert order we had to wait about 20 min. Sad. Now, am not saying he is a bad server. I saw him very busy, probably the only server that night with so many tables to take care. I truly hope that our next visit can go much better. Thanks Acacia house! Food was superb, the duck breast was my favorite. Sorry, I didn’t mean to complain, but the app keep asking to rate my visit. 🙃

    My family went to the Acacia House for Mother's Day and my wife really enjoyed her meal and the restaurant ambience. My wife had the lobster benedict and she really enjoyed the meal. I had the chicken schnitzel, it was good, but the portion was not that large, but a very good meal. Our son had the brioche french toast with strawberries, he loved it! The ambience and greeting by the staff at the Acacia House was attentive without being obtrusive. Also, for Mother's Day, I do want to mention they offered a rose to my wife at the end of our meal. She really appreciated the experience and attentiveness. I highly recommend the Acacia House for a special occasion.

    Most unknown top flight restaurant in napa valley. Am a local, so used to all the usual suspects for top flight food here. Nobody does it better, more consistently, with better service and venue than this place. And you can actually get a table same day. Crazy, do yourself a favor and give it a shot.

    They did not have our open table reservation even though it was confirmed. Not a problem there was plenty of space and we had a lovely table on the porch. Service was slow and it took nearly 20 minutes to get our wine. They did not have inventory of many of their wine list wines.

    When we called to modify our confirmed Opentable reservation, she said we did not have a reservation. Then she wanted my credit card to pay for a $25 pp cancellation charge. I ordered a bottle of wine and the sommelier only offered bottles that were double the price of what I ordered. Food great. Our server was great. Disappointed with reservation process & policy. Disappointed with sommelier/manager.

    Terrible service; our table was completely ignored. Had to flag down waitress for a water refill after 25 minutes. Schnitzel was the only fair entree served. Fish dish was watery and unappetizing, and the chips/dip quality has gone downhill. Avoid.

    Food wasn't as good as we expected for the price and reviews we read. It was lunch time, so we ordered the chicken sandwich and schnitzel. Portions were pretty small overall and they didn't have a kids menu so we had to order a full plate for our 8yr old.
