ACME is a New American Bistro located on Great Jones Street, in Manhattan’s Noho neighborhood. The seasonal menu showcases a variety of European flavors and techniques, but is quintessentially New York. Below the restaurant, a storied and time-worn rock ‘n’ roll club has been renovated into a cocktail bar, ideal for pre-dinner drinks, large-party dining, and private events. In addition to the bar program, ACME Downstairs offers a menu which includes a number of dishes from the restaurant as well as more casual small-plate options.

    Overall it was ok - but I believe it was overpriced. Service and ambience are really good, but that doesn't justify the high price of several dishes in the Menu and the execution of the dishes.

    Food and drinks were amazing. I think certain foods are overpriced but the drinks 100% worth the cost. The bartender provided amazing service but our waiter was pretty pushy. We were only looking to get a bunch of apps to share and he pushed entrees and didn’t seem pleased when we weren’t ordering more than apps nor when I didn’t want a second drink (I had work early the next day). I would go back, but probably only for a special occasion.

    I enjoyed the food. I had the special which was spaghetti with a lobster and crab sauce. The service was not to my liking. We were encouraged to order our entrees at the same time as the appetizers - for the convenience of the kitchen. I found this antithetical to the idea that the dining experience for the patron was the primary focus. At the price point, one is definitely paying for the experience.

    The restaurant and bar ambiance was great. Lots of fun and cool drinks. It was a bit loud but it is a smaller place. There is a lounge downstairs that as we were leaving had a long line so we would love to go back and check that out. Overall cool place prices were not bad service was good food was ok.

    Had a great time here and the ambiance is perfect for a group meal or special event! There were 5 of us and we split a few rounds of appetizers, all pulling away from the table full and pleased with the entire evening. Loved the Spicy Octopus salad and the Bone Marrow!

    Gorgeous restaurant with a really romantic vibe. The service was very slow, we waited over 30 min for appetizers to be brought out. The appetizers were all delicious and set the tone for an exciting dinner. However, the main course and desserts were not great. Turned out to be an extremely expensive and underwhelming dinner.

    Fun and lively ambience with incredibly tasty food! We ordered several appetizers and an entree for sharing. The pastas were delicious (cacio e pepe and duck ragu), and the chicken kiev was inventive and well cooked. Service was excellent, and I enjoyed my free cocktail from my Yelp check-in! Loved our girls night out at Acme!

    Really bad service. Made a reservation for six. Through out our dinner i had one drink and that was what i ordered from the bar while i was waiting for our table. Asked the waiter 3 times for drinks still never got it. Manager was notified by me however she was very condescending and she made me feel like i was wasting her time. I was very upset that i did not check the bill and later i realized they actually charged for the drinks they did not even served. Lost 6 customers who live in the Neibhor hood.

    We had a bad experience in this restaurant. We asked if we could have the table in the edge. They told us this table is reserved for 5 People. After one hour two people were getting this table. The food was ok but not special. The whole evening a cook from the kitchen was running thru the restaurant in his dirty outfit..

    Hi Anna, I’m sorry the table you asked for was unavailable - parties do often decrease in size upon arrival, which is most likely what happened that night. Please let me know when you choose to join us again for dinner, so we may provide you with a better experience. Sincerely, Kat Bartlett, General Manager

    El lugar esta padre ! Tiene una luz tenue y maderas que lo hacen bastante acogedor ! Pero la comida, por lo menos la que nosotros pedimos , fue mala. Esperaba una cocina más elaborada para el precio de los platillos! Creo que esta muy caro para lo que comes, honestamente creo que en Nueva York hay muchas mejores opciones para gastar tu dinero ! Lastima porque el mesero fue bastante amable. Lo mejor del lugar es un bar que está en la parte de abajo, pero cenar en el lugar no te garantiza el acceso al bar, así que da igual. Debut y despedida
