We were anxious to try Chef Cosentino's new restaurant- knowing of him thru Top Chef Masters- and being "foodies" somewhat
We appreciated the corkage policy. We had a delightful dinner- sharing 4 different courses. I am always looking for the WOW- and w only found it in the dessert. All courses were "good"- although entrees very pricey. Would recommend with some reservation.

Food was overpriced and skimpy and frankly not very good. Service was fine. Crudite app
was good but was half the size of the one that Michael Bauer had in July 2017. (picture @SF gate) 2 round medallions of chix, 4 asparagus spears (over salted), 2 tablespoons of polenta for
$30 ridiculous. Had a weird after taste. Don't know if it was the chix or the jus. They didn't even ask me why I didn't eat the chix. Drinks weren't even good. Sorry to be so harsh.

This was a great and unexpected dining experience. We had figured that we would eat at the Las Alcobas on site restaurant after checking in and were glad that we did. Everything about the evening exceeded our expectations. The lamb and striped bass were superb. The Somm, Zoe, made the evening a great experience.

We came to acacia house for our anniversary.
We waited almost 20 minutes to get a glass of wine and literally begged to order a quick app. I let the server know that I don’t eat gluten and she didn’t mention that some of the dishes we wanted to order did indeed have gluten and brought them. When we would ask her to describe a dish she literally related it verbatim from the menu.
Our server wasn’t very helpful and very curt. The food tasted fantastic but the service wasn’t great.
The topper was when we asked if Chef Cosentino & the server said he never comes in.

Came to this restaurant due to the stellar reviews, but in an area with exceptional restaurants and exceptional service staff, the Acacia House fell incredibly short of my expectations. The valet service was the best thing about my visit.

Some of the dishes were over-salted, some were downright bland, although all of the plates were quite picturesque.

Overall, I would not recommend a visit here nor would I refer anyone to visit.

This was such an incredibly disappointing evening for all of us. I have been the biggest fan of the Acacia House since it opened and have happily and wonderfully dined there at least 35-40 times. We live in St Helena and take all of our out of town guests, as well as business clients there and are regular patrons ourselves.. It was painfully obvious that something is under foot. I was going to reach out to the owner Samuel (an elegant and over the top in service Gentleman who would be horrified about the evenings events) operator) and ask if he has sold the property or the restaurant or has Chef Cosentino left, or or or??? . The service was deplorable from the minute we stepped foot onto the property until we left. There was not one familiar face in the bar or the restaurant and the "pretend manager" that evening was a joke. In addition to not following up on "way" empty drink glasses nor not seating us for an hour after we arrived, we sat for 20 minutes before someone came to take our order. She was not just unfriendly she was actually rude. Once the food arrived and we finished our meal we all sat with completely empty water and wine glasses, and dirty plates for over 15 minutes. I had to get up (3rd time during the evening) and ask some one to please take care of us! Cynthia

Really nice service, friendly and informative. Loved the outside porch seating for a nice well made drink and small starter bite. Moved inside and had a nice table, good service and food. Not sure I really got the Schnitzel. I know, why did I order it - probably because it was $60 and I thought this must be amazing to be that bold... but really, it was just because there was caviar on it. Yeah, it didn't work. But everything else was great - bass, the crudites were fresh and interesting, nice desert (very interesting). Try it out, un-found cool spot until it is found!

A lovely venue with delicious food. We had one of the best dinners at the Acacia House. The small plates were inventive and fun. We enjoyed the schnitzel as an entree and finished with "light", a lemony refreshing dessert. Our server was attentive but not intrusive. Oh and the drinks, definitely try the garden, equally beautiful and refreshing. Walk around the grounds of Las Alcobas if you get a chance. Beautiful!

Acacia House is beautiful! We sat outside on the porch. The food was spectacular. Out of the four different courses we had the pork was the best. The down side is the service. I had made a reservation but still had to wait to be seated. They told us we could wait at the bar which was fine but after 30 minutes we had to ask about when are table would be ready and they had forgotten about us. Even after being seated we waited and waited for our food server. We were there for hours before we were finally done.

The restaurant and the grounds are very nice. The decor is great and it's a very comfortable place to dine. The bar service was awful. We waited 15 minutes for them to bring a wine list and then to locate the bottle of wine we ordered. The we waited another few minutes for them to open and pour our bottle of wine that sat at the end of the bar. It was not busy. There were 2 bartenders and we were the only customers sitting at the bar with only 1-2 tables in the bar area taken. When we were seated at our table, I had to request that they bring our open bottle to us as it again remained on the bar with no attention to it. The service in the dining room was much better. The food was fine. I'm glad we tried it because it's new, but with so many great places in the area, I don't know that I would return any time soon.

After going thru a maze to find the restaurant (valet failed to give us directions on how to get in) we had a great meal. The ambiance is comfortable, but a bit predictable. The winner was certainly the food. I look forward to coming back to try out Brunch and dinner.

Katrina is always so welcoming. We are impressed how she specifically recalls our coffee orders. Biscotti served with cappuccino is a nice touch. Our server Gabby was professional and friendly. The pastry chef is a star! We love the miniature muffins, croissants, and scones. Food was terrific. "Purgatory" is a favorite choice for breakfast (delicious combination of baked eggs with spicy tomato sauce and olives). Interior design is also beautiful.

Arrived with great anticipation after reading several reviews and the like. Strikingly beautiful house from the outside and completely remodeled on the interior with very a very modern feel. I would have preferred to have seen more of the original Victorian interior features, but it was nice inside.

Brought our own very nice bottle of wine to enjoy but had a nicely made cocktail before ordering. Our waiter was stressed from the start and not the most professional. The menu was very interesting and extremely esoteric. We choose to split a salad and entree after a late lunch. The waiter was a mess and left us to our own devices for long periods of time, completely ignored in the corner. Upon arrival we received a very nice Birthday card from the hostess.

Never offered a dessert from our MIA waiter. Asked to have a couple shots of chilled Don Julio 1942 during the meal and was informed I needed to go back to the bar and order there since the restaurant didn't yet have their spirits menu available. Odd. All in all not a stellar performance from this highly touted restaurant and definetly not worth the prices charged.

Acacia House was the highlight of our recent trip to Napa and we highly recommend it. The small bar area serves delicious and unique cocktails where we had the good fortune of meeting the owner (Sam). He was extremely gracious and introduced us to the somm--who provided valuable insight as to the local wineries for our tasting trip the next day. The food and service were both phenomenal but next time we go we will stay on the property because if staying there as a guest is anything like the hospitality we enjoyed while eating and drinking there, it will be well worth it. This is a must stop while in wine country!

The food and ambience was great except for the lighting was too bright. Some tables were better than others but for dinner we like it to be dim lighting. They couldn’t turn it down because it was pre programmed. Service was great and so was the food. Definitely try the tres leches dessert-best ever! Definitely would go here again but would request a table without blaring spotlight!

I was staying in St. Helena for a few days to celebrate my birthday. I decided to try this restaurant since it’s fairly new in the valley. I love this property and the minimalist design. This restaurant is airy, very chic. From the bar to the yard, from the kitchen to the bathroom, everything is meticulously designed, very inviting with the wine country living in mind. Their menu options are light, organic, and super fresh. Wish l could’ve tried everything since l was celebrating my birthday. I had a cold so my taste bud was off, but the service was very good.

Keep in mind, the restaurant is small and tables are close together. We did feel a little awkward/cramped upon being seated as the restaurant was not full yet. But as soon as the restaurant filled with guests socializing and eating, that cramped feeling went away. It actually got quite loud! We like that social vibe in a restaurant but if you are looking for a quiet, romantic evening, this may not be the place.

I spoke to the sous chef ahead of my dinner to order a custom cake. Wow, l was amazed at how beautiful the cake looked and it tasted heavenly. He decorated it with fresh raspberries, blueberries, custard filling and my favorite color pink icing. I was amazed at the price point, l reside in SF, so l was to pay more. This is my new favorite restaurant in the valley. I will come back to try other dishes soon and l love the Luxury Collection.

Special Anniversary dinner. No one wished us until the very end. Little gem salad soggy from the dressing. I Have photos. Sweetbreads were taste less. Monk fish was cooked inconsistently due to uneven cut. Octopus pasta was dry and not as interesting as it is sounded on the menu. Dessert was fabulous and both mock tails were well balanced and delightful considering it was off menu. Fun ambiance but a little on the loud side!

Food is always fresh and beautifully prepared. I did order the herbal tonic and it took an enormous amount of time to juice it. The server came out to apologize, the manager came out to apologize, and still I was basically finished with my crudite starter and hamachi crudo when I finally received it and it was indeed delicious. I feel they should have at least comped the drink since I am a regular local diner.
