We enjoyed our visit to Acorn. The small plates were much more interesting than the entrees. We ordered the Peekytoe Crab Fried Rice and the Turkish Bread with the Lamb Sausage to share for the table. Both were substantial and flavorful. I ordered the Charred Cauliflower for my main meal and thoroughly enjoyed it. My tablemates each ordered a seafood/fish entree and were a bit underwhelmed. The cocktails and wine selection were great!

Needed a night out after two months of takeout. Plus, it was our anniversary (39 days late). Acorn was the perfect place to celebrate both. Good distancing, masks all around, front window open.

Oh, yeah, the food. There was food, too. Outstanding! From the cocktails, to the charcuterie board, to dinner, everything was interesting (in a good way!). Can't wait to go there and experience it in a proper way.

Love the ambience and all of the food we’ve had there has been phenomenal. I will say the descriptions sound out there and fancy specifically on the dinner menu but as long as you have an open mind, I don’t think you will be disappointed. Try the crab rice and Brussel sprouts. Have also been for brunch which is excellent also. Wish they didn’t get rid of the biscuits and gravy but the burger is excellent.

Picked this restaurant because it was a brunch option for my daughter and I. Restaurant has a great layout for social distancing. I had a bagel with lox and my daughter had the grilled chicken salad. Salad had some pickled coix seeds that I never had or heard of before so that was unique. The bagel was tasty and everything was very filling. I will definitely return here.

Ate here on the evening of July 2, 2020 just before all restaurants had to be shut down for the second time due to the Coronavirus. Our waiter was delightful, sad to be closing again at midnight, but happy to have customers. We had the crab "rice" (no actual rice involved, but shredded to be rice-like in texture), delicious mussels, and the beautiful forest risotto (morel mushrooms, spring peas, pistachio, parmesan, & mint). Because we were full, we skipped the offered dessert of Beignets. Will go back when restaurants are open again.

The meal was outstanding. My husband and son got the ribeye which was great and I got the salmon. Both meals were very interesting - great flavor and cooked perfectly. The charred cauliflower and assorted butter apps were also very delicious! Services was great too!

Quality enjoyable food and service. Calamari appetizer and half-duck entree particularly good. Top quality ingredients and good portion size. The place is not designed for a quiet meal or particularly elegant night for the price. (Always slightly annoying to have those Pittsburgh $16 glasses of wine that would be $11 in Chicago.)

We received a gift card for this restaurant and were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. We had a reservation and were running a few minutes behind schedule. I called the restaurant to tell them and they were completely understandable. I would totally recommend making a reservation before you go because the place isn't that big. They had a table for us when we got there. We both had the steak and eggs (we went for brunch menu) which was absolutely delicious! I definitely think we will go back again.
