We arrived for Sunday brunch. Waiting for my guests to arrive, I wanted a cocktail. After too long of a wait for someone to take my drink order, I went to the bar and ordered myself. My guests arrived and we had additional cocktails and enjoyed conversation in the lounge area. After awhile, the hostess came to verify reservations and number in my party (5). About 20 minutes later, we were escorted to the dining room. Unfortunately, we had to wait at the hostess stand until our table was ready. I feel the table should have been made ready PRIOR to being summoned from the lounge. When we arrived to our table, the floor under our table was excessively dirty with crumbs. These should have been swept up prior to seating. The food was good and the waitress service as expected. I believe management should probably have a front of house meeting on what standards should be expected.

Food was excellent! I had the 3 course brunch (avocado toast.) Enjoyed every bite. Husband had chicken sandwich a la carte.
My brunch: First course was brought along with main (2nd) course. Bar drink (Acacia special) was brought after these two items and my husband's coffee were served.
Waiter was friendly, which was great... but the drink should have come first and the first course should have come first as an appetizer, not served along with the 2nd course. If I could give 4.8 stars, I would. It wasn't a big problem but it was noticed.

Seating was lovely location on the front porch. They do have a nice indoor restaurant as well. The day was sunny, so we chose outside. Parking is valet (we asked if we could "self park as our Corvette was NEW and we wanted no one driving it. Parking attendant was totally understanding, moved a cone and let us park it ourselves. He was awesome!)

Third time there. Service was very slow and food has gone way downhill. Seems like it has been going downhill. Server could not remember the order and it took more than an hour to get our main course. The Caesar salad had so much anchovies paste on it that it was discussing.

Went for anniversary and we were greeted with a card signed by everyone and when we ordered dessert their was a chocolate added that said Happy Anniversary
We both had the duck which was outstanding. Crispy skin. Tender and flavorful meat. Corking fee was really high $30-35. Wait staff was incredibly service oriented. Beautiful location.

Had brunch on the veranda. Incredibly beautiful & peaceful. Great cocktails. Amazing burrata with pesto & fruit. Would have preferred to have had the breakfast sandwich as open faced but it was tasty. English muffins from Model bakery are better - they should consider serving those instead. Great fries. Told Open Table it was our anniversary but apparently that never got relayed to the restaurant.

Acacia House is a St. Helena gem!!! The atmosphere is lovely..a restored stately home with wraparound porch, staff extremely engaging and the food was superb! Treat yourself while in Wine Country to a great culinary experience off the main hubbub of downtown Napa & Yountville. We had great bottle of wine (fantastic list) Oh, and there’s no corkage fee should you want to bring your own bottle!

The place is very pretty. The restaurant prices were very pricey and the food didn’t blow us away like other places have in the Napa Valley. Corkage is $35! Which is ridiculously pricey for The Valley! We’ve definitely tasted better and had a much better experience elsewhere and will not be returning to the restaurant. The best part of the experience were the margaritas that we had in the lounge.

Eclectic, modern vibe. Acacia house is a restored Georgian house within las alcobas - a lux hotel. Go for the brunch!! - great value for $29. Pastries, fired chicken sandwich (tastiest Cole slaw). Also had the salmon avocado toast and rounded up with great chocolate mousse dessert. Wines by the glass selection was unique. We ordered the coupa Chardonnay and Pinot noir (forget the name)

Such a lovely quaint environment with thoughtful food and drink selections. Not too quiet and stuffy, unique food combinations. The mushrooms were excellent as was the risotto. The hamachi fish dish was a bit too salty. Wish it were not so far out in the middle of no where, otherwise I’d be back!

Pros: Excellent wine selections. Nice food menu. Food tasted delicious. Friendly staff. Known for margarita at their bar.
Cons: Uncomfortable chairs; hard as a rock. Very expensive (1 filet mignon $55; 1 margarita $24, etc.). A bottle of wine and dinner for two could easily run you $400. There are so many fantastic restaurants in Napa Valley. I would probably choose an alternative based on this pricing.

One of the newer stars in Napa Valley. Acacia House is wonderful in every aspect. They take service to a completely new level and their attention to detail from the moment you drive up to valet park to the entry into the restaurant is amazing.

Personalized attention at it's best....It was our anniversary and we were presented with a card which was had signed by each of the servers, managers, bar staff and waiting assistants: a very nice touch.

The food is imaginative and outstanding. I had the Iberico Pork Schnitzel wi which is one of their signature dishes. My wife had the Halibut and both were superb. The fresh tomatoes and Burrata was also a terrific way too begin the meal. The also had a Lobster Puttanesca which made my main course decision even more difficult.

Highly recommended and you will have a wonderful evening.

We were there for brunch on a Saturday. Excellent service starting with the host (who may have been the GM?) to the waiters and sommelier. They were very accommodating when we asked to move from the inside to outdoor seating. The cocktails were well balanced (on the spirit forward side) and the breakfast pastries combined with the fried chicken sandwich and fruit dessert was great (I personally liked it better than the chocolate option that I tried from a friend). Finally the Sommelier serving our table was great. He heard that we had been waiting for a bit between courses and provided us with complementary sparkling wine.

Saw this restaurant featured on Check Please Bay Area and the 3 reviewers were all swooning over the amazing food. We couldn't wait to try it so for our 27th wedding anniversary we booked a reservation for dinner and even sprang for a night's stay in Calistoga. The restaurant is in a lovely mansion on a hill and is beautifully appointed. We sat on the porch and enjoyed the view while dining. Unfortunately the food did not live up to the reviews. Firstly, most of the items that were discussed on the show were no longer on the menu since it was now summer and the show took place the previous fall. The one menu item that was carried over, the pork schnitzel, was $59 and definitely not worth it. It came with a dollop of caviar, which my husband asked to not have since he doesn't care for it and asked if the price would be adjusted. The server said "no" so he had it served on the side so that I could have it. My dish, lobster in a puttanesca sauce with pasta, the sauce was so sweet that it overpowered the lobster and pasta rendering the dish inedible. I sent it back and had pasta with fresh tomato sauce instead, which was just ok, not noteworthy. As a starter I had the featured yellow beet salad with ricotta which was tasty but the presentation was lacking. They took a large beet and basically cut it up into sections and laid it over the ricotta. I can do better at home and certainly for the $11 price tag I would expect some effort to go into the presentation. The wine list is well put together and the Rombauer Chard that we had with our meal was delicious. Dessert was good, not memorable (s'more with roasted banana ice cream) and is one of those desserts that helps you keep on your diet as the portion is tiny. A great place for drinks, excellent service, but the food needs some help.
