    Acre is surprisingly good. A pleasant, clean, modern environment and a select menu of superb food with global influences. The service staff were on point and the chef’s worked methodically and calmly in the open kitchen in the background. Since we were there on a winter night we didn’t see the roof top garden. I’m looking forward to returning soon and on the regular, and will highly recommend Acre, our new local favourite restaurant, to our friends and family. Definitely worthy of a visit!

    Great concept and excellent fit out, felt super weird to arrive to a shopping centre ! The service was good but a couple of annoying things. First thing was out of 4 red wines by the glass only one was available, then the only Rose was also different so there was nothing available by the glass really. We were given dessert menu's and made our choice then the waitress came over and said "sorry the passionfruit tart is a baked cheese cake tonight" Totally get things change but should be told when menu is placed not after you make your decision, the clincher was when we asked what herbal teas you have were told ummmmm ummmm peppermint ummmmm green, we asked if they had lemon grass and ginger or any other herbals and she said yes they have a lemon tea. Great ordered that, it was hot water with a wedge of lemon?? Again not a big problem but that's not a tea that's a warm lemon drink - like no tea leaves just hot water and a wedge of lemon. Would be great to come back in the day time and see all the green. Would come back and give it another go.

    Went for high tea, so can't speak for regular menu. High tea was about $80 a head and entailed: 1 small veggie wrap 1 sandwich finger 1 sandwich triangle 1 small quiche 1 small arancini ball 1 bite size sausage roll 1 slider 1 scone 3 small cakes - one of which as a mirangue that wasn't even attached to the lemon/pastry base. We were all pretty shocked at the quality and quantity of the food (comes in at about $7 per item). All was clearly pre made and re-heated, and was still pretty cold. Our platter was missing our quiches to begin with, and our request for more jam and cream was forgotten so we needed to chase it up. Good atmosphere, but service and food was definitely not worth $80 a head.

    Great ambiance, good initiative and loved the farm to table concept. Food was a hit and missed, on average they were all good. Dishes such as the autumn soup, the risotto and the poached pear were unexpectedly great, where as some dishes could do better with the ratio i.e. bread to pate, jus to meat. I wished they would explained the ingredients that were grown on their farm or locally sourced, however the staffs of 4 seemed to struggle catering to a table of 8, 9. Definitely room for improvements.

    Overall experience was positive and would revisit. Menu wasnt inspirinational though food was of good quality and well done, though I would've expected a lot more produce sourced and highlighted from the rooftop farm itself. Areas of improvement in the service would've been receiving a glass of sparkling wine from the bar upon arrival vs poured at the table, as it's a bit awkward walking around with a full glass of sparkling. As well as removal of the menu by the staff. Overall the ambience and concept of the space is good.

    The concept was great and the food was tasty, although lacked some seasoning. The service was not great. We had to wait a long tie to get served. It was hard to get anyone's attention, coffees and meals took a long time to come out. But the ambience and concept are really lovely and it's a very pleasant space to be in.

    It's a wonderful environment and the food was good. But, we didn't get exactly what we ordered or everything we ordered. It was busy but not frantic and no reason for inattentiveness of some staff. Having to battle to place food/drink orders and then failing to deliver is not good, especially when the additions were included on the bill and we had to ask for them to be removed.

    Unfortunately our experience wasn’t great. There were 3 of us. One received their pork belly (which was a bit dry) while the rest of us waited for our chicken which still hadn’t turned up after 90 minutes. We then chose to leave.

    The marinara linguine was very tasty and surpassed a few Italian restaurants I've been to. Plenty of prawns but no mussels or calamari. The garden salad was mainly leaves. It could have been a little more interesting.

    I wasn't blown away by the food - menu was limited. The presentation was nice but flavours weren't quite there. I had the small plate of vegetables, which were over priced at $17 for a few carrots, olives and sauce, and the broccolini side had a blanched yet oily texture. Decor was nice, but we were expecting a little more from the menu.

    Very beautiful venue and would be even lovelier in the daytime when you can see the view. Staff are skilled at relating to customers and creating rapport, however given they are serving a set menu the service and delivery of the meal was sub par. We had to ask a number of questions about what was being served and the only variation to the menu arrived long after the other entrees. We ordered two bottles of wine, but even when our main course was being served and we all had empty glasses we had to ask for the second bottle to be poured. orders for dessert were taken as the kitchen was closing but our plates weren’t cleared for a while. Perhaps they were short staffed? For the prices I feel that they need to spend a little more on floor service.

    Such a beautiful restaurant, very calming and relaxing atmosphere. The food was absolutely lovely, and well presented. Service is not amazing, hardly any people but still felt had to seek out service constantly just to place our order, even though we had been sitting there for some time with our menus put aside. Same with completion, no offer of dessert or coffees nor bill. Luckily I still enjoyed the ambience and actual dishes enough to rate this so high.
