    Paying homage to Oakland history-about 100 years ago there was a lounge and club called the VARSITY LOUNGE located in our same location, who knew! In digging up old Oakland memorabilia, we found an old menu. To our surprise-they were well known for two things the Varsity Martini and Conga Lines!! While we aren’t ready for a conga, we are ready for the Varsity Martini and other drink specials. Come join us every day in our downstairs café, and our upstairs bar Monday through Saturday.

    The food was incredible! We had arancini for an appetizer, Greens , and the most delicious pizza. They have Happy Hour everyday. The staff was very friendly and efficient. it is a very unique and beautiful restaurant with a cafe and bar downstairs and a fancier restaurant upstairs with a full bar. We are excited to return to this very friendly and wonderful restaurant.

    Our waiter was fantastic, but the food was just ok and more disappointing the cocktails were unbalanced.

    Pick a seasonal dish. Two of us split the Spring Morel pasta - loads of very tasty morels and the spring peas tasted sweet but yet have a good crunch

    morel pasta was truly outstanding, one of the most flavorful ever
    AcreResponded 7 days ago
    Peter, Thank you for the kind words. Morel season is coming to a close so we will only have that pasta on the menu for the next couple of weeks. After morels are gone, we will replace that dish with a more seasonal approach. We hope we see you back at ACRE soon! Best Wishes, Pete and Dirk

    Great service, nice ambiance although a bit loud, roasted cauliflower soup was delicious as was the turkey sandwich.

    Not going back ever again. The food was mediocre at best. Cesar salad was drenched with salad dressing and too salty. We had to ask about the main course. The server never put our main courses in because he said “the table is too small for all of your food”. We never got our burger or pasta and by this point I was glad I could save some money by not getting more poorly prepared food.

    We had an amazing dining experience at Acre to celebrate my husband’s milestone birthday. The food was delicious. Loved the shareable plates. The service was excellent and felt so personal. They made us feel special. Really enjoyed the cool atmosphere and energy of Acre.

    Smaller menu but good. I had the chicken dish and liked the greens- didn’t think I would. The Barrata was lovely too. Beautiful flourless chocolate cake and dreamy soft serve ice cream with olive oil and salt.
