Chris Cosentino sold out. Incanto was one of our favorite restaurants for years. We love Boccalone products. But this place is an overpriced sham. $175 pre tip bill on mediocre food. (I did live our server. She was the most real thing about this place.) Acacia House is a pig in lipstick, if you will.

Overall a very good restaurant. Great decor, good food and good service. Worth going to if in the area. Nothing really stood out as spectacular except the olive oil cake for dessert. Corkage fee is way to high and punitive at $35.

This was a Ladies Day brunch! What a gem and surprise find in the Napa Valley. The food was creative and thoughtful, delicious and beautifully presented. We first ate with our eyes, and then savored each bite!

The staff were all warm, knowledgeable and charming. It was obvious they all are proud of the restaurant. As we were leaving we noticed Chef in the garden harvesting herbs and vegetables. What a treat!

We will all be returning with our gentlemen on our next visit to Napa Valley.

This is a must for anyone who appreciates a relaxing dining experience with exceptional food and unparalleled service.

Incredible food and service. The pate was to die for, the beef daube (short rib) was so tender you could cut it with a spoon and the creme brulee was absolutely delicious. Definitely will be coming back for a special occasion.

Lime foam margarita is worth the trip! Exceptional. Service was professional and personal. Food was top quality. Would have been 5 star, but the ambience is a bit off. Too many service people milling around, trying to be helpful, but are irritating. When they age a bit, they will be tops.

We had the pre-fix brunch. The food is decent but pricy for the $49 brunch, particularly the limited offers. It said it is a three course brunch but I don't think bread and butter should be counted as a course. In addition, coffee and tea are also not included but included the bubbles.
The service is excellent. Our waitress acts professionally and smoothly. I will go back to try the dinner but I'd not recommend the brunch.

I have a mixed review experience. We are locals and heard good things about the restaurant. The bar and appetizers were terrific. The signature Margarita is the best I have had. The service and ambiance were great. What was not great were the entrees. I sent my pasta back and did not order another one. the other 2 entrees were lacking in flavor. So while I loved everything else, I didn't love the food. I will say that I will give it another shot because it was lovely and see how they do.

Menu and wine list were very limited. The burrata and grape salad was excellent, our entrees (chicken & potatoes in a chili sauce and beef brasato rigatoni) were good, not great. Restaurant itself had nice ambiance, great service and wasn’t loud. However, we would probably try a different restaurant on our next visit to Saint Helena.

I had lunch on New Year's eve. I chose 3 courses for $29. Overall it was good. The entree octopus on the spaghettini was a bit undercooked. I did enjoy the appetizer tuna and chocolate mousse dessert. I would recommend the restaurant. It is sentimental to me also because I was married on the deck of the (now)Acacia house in 1997 when it was still Grandview.

Although we love the remodel and beauty of Las Alcobas, the resort where Acacia resides, we went for dinner expecting an expensive and "nice enough" experience. The first thing I noticed that despite the restaurant being full, the pacing our our meal was perfect. I hate being rushed through my first cocktail, and we weren't. The menu looked "interesting", which left me feeling that it may be too precious, or weird. I was wrong. I haven't had such innovative, creative, unexpected, and all around delicious food in a long time, despite living in St Helena. One starter was creamy burrata with roasted grapes! Who does that? My persimmon, kohlrabi and avocado salad was over lebna--it was creamy, savory, generous, delicious. I almost licked the plate! The chicken piri piri was perfectly seasoned and tender, and the roasted butternut squash was an unexpected delight--filled with brusselsprouts, pomegranate seeds and other wonderful seasonal vegetables. We usually don't indulge, but the olive oil cake was just light enough to complement the meal.
We are still talking about how great our meal was, and believe that this level of preparing meals will make Acacia the standout restaurant in the valley, easily competing with the name brands in Yountville. Yum!

The food was great; service great! The temperature inside was a problem!! It was close to 80 degrees!!

When I asked the server, he said the manager was cold! I offered my sweater. Way too hot!!

Once the cool air came on, we could order dessert.

Otherwise great overall.

We had a wonderful experience for Christmas dinner. Our server was so warm and hospitable even when I made a mistake on the soup I ordered. I still very bad about that. But she didn’t make a big deal about it. As I observed the wait staff, I could see that there was a lot of attention to detail and timing. Everyone had a great sense of humor and I really appreciated that! I also noticed that the customers were happy and interacting with other dinners in a most pleasant way. We will be coming back again!
