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!
We had a great meal with great service. Will definitely go back
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.
Great brunch! Excellent bagel!! I highly recommend going here for brunch or dinner!
Outstanding service, wonderful atmosphere, and literally the best bagel I’ve ever had in my life!
We went to Acorn for a long due brunch. The food was amazing - love their soft and tasteful pancakes! Service was great as well. Will definitely go again soon
Anniversary brunch. Great service. Delicous options
Our food was excellent and our waiter was incredibly knowledgeable on the menu. Very great experience, we are looking forward to our next visit.
Most of the food was good But, we were served the tomato pizza pie and the whole entire outer Crust was Burnt solid Black to a crisp... I can't believe they even served it like that !
Small menu, excellent choices. Ribeye was better than most I've ever had. Crab rice and salmon appetizers full of flavor and textures. Tasty house brew from tap! Server very knowledgeable of menu and a five star dining experience.
Loved all the small plates/appetizers we ordered. Food was creative and fun to try - a culinary trip for our mouths - and very tasty! Drinks were great and so was service. Will definitely come back
We loved the Turkish flatbread and the carrot cake- amazing! What a gem in Shadyside!
Wonderful food and wonderful waiter... had a great evening.
Good food. Excellent Service Properly spaced. Would highly recommend
Staff was friendly and attentive. We had the ribeye and halibut - both were delicious.
Wonderfully crafted meals and excellent service
Food & drinks were really good. I'll def be back again.
Amazing food and service!
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.
Great wai service and food. COVID friendly😷
Entrees and Appetizers were amazing. Save room for dessert.
Food was delicious and our server was knowledgeable on each dish. Atmosphere was great even with limited capacity. I will definitely be going back!
. Helpful staff that kept a proper distance. Food was well plated, hot and delicious. Friend had salmon, I had crab. Both out standing. Always a good stop.
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.
Great to be back to this wonderful restaurant
Acorn always has great food, great service, and wonderful ambiance.
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!
Another great experience, looking forward to our next experience at Acorn. Highly recommend that you check out this restaurant.
Service is always good. As is the food. It’s just a short walk from our house; it’s becoming our n’hood favorite. And fun to sit at the bar. The cocktails are clever.
Great first meal. Steak and Eggs were tasty. Portions were good sized. Chicken was good but could have been more crispy. Overall would recommend.
The entire experience was great! The Charcuterie was beyond delicious. I had a perfectly prepared Ribeye. The Carrott Cake dessert was served warm and so flavorful. All of the ingredients and products they serve are high quality and fresh. I will be returning soon.
Outstanding menu, food and service! Waiter was terrific and took care to accommodate my gluten free mother and fussy eater father.
Wonderful find on OpenTable. Food and service were above and beyond. I highly recommend the rainbow trout or king salmon. Will be back.
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.)
Simply phenomenal, the food, service and ambiance was great. Food was very well put together, definitely going back when I’m in town. HIGHLY recommend brunch here as well.
Acorn has the best brunch. The food is exceptional and the beverages are terrific. I alaways enjoy Acorn.
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.
