    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 from 2pm-6pm, and our upstairs bar from 4pm-6pm Mon-Sat.

    Acre is exactly the kind of restaurant I was hoping would open in the East Bay. The food is delicious, the space is comfortable and attractive, the staff is attentive and friendly. I love Acre!

    Good meal - good service. I paid in with $20 bills and the server said it would be a few minutes to get change. After 15 minutes I asked her if our change was coming and she said, yes, it would be here soon. Ten minutes later it still hadn't arrived so we left and she ended up with a 30% tip. Lesson learned - pay with plastic.

    The dinning room is beautiful , the seating is comfortable and spacious . The food is very rich and and flavorful , a bit too salty for my taste , the menu is rather limited . They have a hamburger on the menu but apparently only 12 ,they were gone by 7 pm .The service was good . For the price there are better choices

    We were disappointed in the menu changes. We have been frequent visitors at Oliveto and now Acre. But we feel the food is going downhill. Sorry to report.

    What a wonderful experience. We were celebrating a birthday and the food, wine and service was outstanding. We all enjoyed the live music and the ambiance of the restaurant is first rate.

    Food was a little overpriced. Ordered a $19 burger that wasn’t special and did not come with any sides.
