I stayed Los Alcobas for my birthday. It was raining the whole time so happy they had a restaurant onsite. I could not have asked for a better restaurant! We had dinner and breakfast and I am kicking myself for not eating breakfast again, the morning we left. The restaurant was very nice inside. decor modern but comfy and artistic. Service was on point but most of all, the food delivered on flavor, freshness and quality. We ordered at least five different plates for dinner and for breakfast I had the steak and eggs, done perfectly. I highly recommend this place if you are in town. Highly recommended.

Food was very good. The hamachi crude was delicious as was my Cornish hen. The risotto was not very good. More like a soup than a risotto. Ice cream was delicious and made at the restaurant.

Dining room was very cozy with the ability to hear your own conversation and not be drowned out by neighboring conversations.

Would definitely go back.

Last night was our third time dining at the Acacia house and we were a bit disappointed. The ambiance and service are terrific however the food a bit overpriced and that’s likely due to the celebrity chef premium. We all ordered the schnitzel which was good however not at 59 dollars per plate. We have a second home in st Helena and dine our every weekend so if you’re looking for an equally good meal for half the cost I would try brasswood just down the road. Overall it’s a decent place but you’re clearly paying a massive price premium for what you’re getting....

All the hype went unfulfilled. The cocktails were as expected, tasty and pricy. The salads were fine. But the mains were questionable. Carrot a L’orange was a main course of eight carrots on a smear of crisped grains; a starter at Best. The risotto was good but mostly butter. And the signature dish of Schnitzel lived up to its name but not the place. All in all, a pleasant night out but not a $400 superlative dining experience.

Had Christmas dinner here. Great food, friendly staff. We both had the Schnitzel along with an incredible dessert. We stayed the night and had breakfast the next morning, equally fantastic. Great "staycation" for us and we will return again soon.

Christmas Dinner and our first time at Acacia House. A warm ambiance, solid service, and interesting menu. Slightly mixed bag on the food. My Uni pasta and Cornish Game Hen were very good; my husband got the Sweetbreads with Lobster Ravigotte. The lobster in the sauce brought nothing to the party, so couldn't figure out why it was there - although the dish was tasty. He ordered the most expensive entree, The Iberico Schnitzel with a caviar sauce. At $59, it was a head scratcher. Again, tasty, but the high end pork product was pounded and fried, as schnitzel is, and this did not allow for any distinction between this an any other quality pork. The caviar sauce was, another head scratcher. The flavors did not read caviar; we wondered why it was there. The desserts were mixed as well, the tres leches cake was delicious, but the 'eclairs' were a real miss. Dry and rather tasteless; they did not read eclairs at all. Disappointing. I'll be back to check in on the menu as it is refined.

We enjoy the "impossible burger" at Acacia House. The "impossible burger" tastes like a real hamburger, but it is all veggie. My husband and I both love the taste of a real hamburger, but wanted healthier options. Everyone we take to have this burger cannot believe it is all veggie.
Their fries are also quite good and not greasy. We like sharing the burrata salad as well. Chef Chris has done a excellent job with all of his entrees including his meat entrees. The interior is comfortable and modern. I highly recommend this place for lunch. We have not tried dinner there. We have been here six times. We plan on trying more menu items and maybe check it out for dinner.

Went for my birthday lunch with my Mom so there were only two of us and so we only had an opportunity to try two items. The cocktail I had was delicious and I have been making it ever since. The menu it a bit limited and not all that creative. We had a Burrata salad and a lobster hogue, both of which the server said were her favorites. The Burrata would have been way too much cheese for one person, so I’m glad my mom and I shared. It was tasty and was served with some very nice crisp herbed toasts. The lobster sandwich was quite disappointing as it appeared to have very little lobster and Way too much mayonnaise. Very gooey and heavy. We opted for the side of salad instead of fries and the salad was delicious, probably the best part of the meal.

A friend raved about this place. We got a few appetizers going and then the main meals. I found the service to be disappointing. Our server was a bit too rushed and we poured our own wines. If you are going to charge corkage fee, the very least you could do is to do beyond opening the wines. There were a descent left over and our server didn't even bothered asking if we want to wrap them up to go. There were 4 tables when we checked in (Thursday evening) and no table left when we were done. Really? You can do better than this. Will consider giving this place a second chance. The food is definitely overpriced.

I was looking forward to this restaurant experience but it made me really disappointed. Nothing seemed to work around the service and the food was way below the lowest bar. I really hope that was a temporary mishap otherwise they will not stay for long with the same concept. I really liked the wine list both the selection and the prices. Also credit to the sommelier who was very good and professional.

Food was delicious and beautiful. Gluten-free options abounded. Server was sometimes confused about menu items and slightly unfriendly. We were very well attended to, though, and the menu items made up for any lack elsewhere.

This was my and my friends' first visit to Acacia House and we all thought it was excellent. It is a beautiful restaurant with a very warm yet sophisticated interior. The menu has some unique items to try - one of their entrees was Carrots L'Orange, which I had and it was delicious! The server was very attentive and knowledgeable. Of course, all these things should be expected from a Napa Valley restaurant, but Acacia House offers something a bit different, and I highly recommend it!

If you can find Acacia House, you can get a good meal. The sign is for the hotel (Las Alcobas) -- and if your GPS goes out (bad signal there) as ours did, good luck. And despite a largely empty restaurant on a Sunday 1 PM lunch, the service was really slow. That said, we very much enjoyed the food -- although I should have read more carefully, as the lunch menu is mainly sandwiches and I'm on a low-carb diet. Glad I abandoned it for the grilled cheese with truffles and duck egg. And the fall vegetable salad with grilled sea bass was delicious. Expensive but worth it.

We had strange experience in that restaurant supposedly all reserved so took the only available 5:30 table and we were the only ones in the restaurant until 7 when we left!! Had an "abalone salad" that was raw endive with sea salt. No sauce. Apparently the sea salt was the abalone? Lame as was our other appetizer which I don't remember. Fish was perfect, delicious sauce but accompanied with some sad mealy beans. Dessert was a fancy cake that tasted same as a supermarket coffee cake. It's ok, I love coffee cake.

I have been twice for lunch and both times they seemed very understaffed. They didn't look like they were near capacity but our eaters ran dry and they were slow to collect plates and check in. The staff also hadn't been versed on the new menu items. The outdoor view is great the inside is vibrant and nice looking. I would maybe go back for snacks at the bar and try sitting there. If they can tighten up their stuff it will be a great spot.

I was really excited about trying this place and sadly, I was disappointed. The menu was limited and odd selections available. There were too many conflicting flavors: antique burger and lobster submarine. The truffle grilled cheese was the only shining point but there was a little too much butter used. We really appreciate the complimenting flavors with the honey and truffles though. Overall, we would vote there are better values and food elsewhere.

I waited awhile to dine at Acacia house since they opened this summer. We had a great meal and the service was top notch. To start, the House Margaritas are served martini style with a salty foam and clean ingredients, was a hit with everyone. Great selection of appetizers for sharing, including a hamachi crudo and seasonal burrata salad. We really loved the Schnitzel and Ribeye, the Nduja Rigatoni was creative and had excellent flavor. One of our favorites in SH for dinner.

Overall we had a great Experience! Little difficulty getting seated in the original table that we had requested. But they accommodated us in an equally lovely table. Unfortunately there was a party of five across from us that were so loud no one could hear each other speak. Eventually we had asked the manager to chat and she did but unfortunately it didn't do much of a difference. When they left everyone around us clapped. So I guess we weren't the only one offended by it. It must have been difficult for the staff to deal with them but they did a great job helping us to enjoy a great meal.

What a special place! Loved the ambiance, the history of the mansion, and the remodel of the bar/restaurant is fabulous. The wine list superb, and a differentiating factor was the almost book- like history of wines in their menu. Most of the food was terrific- especially the melon soup, the lamb and the sea bass. The only disappointment was the "Sugar Fruit" sorbet- tasteless. But a big thumbs up for this venue for a special dinner. And the service wonderful- we were late due to business meeting and they went to extra efforts to accommodate us.

Welcome to Napa Valley Chris Cosentino! Absolutely fabulous fresh innovative savory unique well executed successful dishes! Especially enjoyed the sea urchin bucatini with truffle and the iberico pork schnitzel. Kit makes delicious killer cocktails! Lovely whimsical desserts especially the eclair trio. Ambiance was cozy and yet lacked warmth and softness. Surfaces were all hard and noise level high enough to interfere with normal conversation.
