    We have been to Acero many times and have always enjoyed the experience. However, last night the service was slow which resulted in our main course coming to the table slightly less than warm. Cup of coffee after dinner was cold, but was then replaced by a hot Americano. Think we were just there on an “off” night, but for the price, “off” nights should not happen. I am sure that we will go back and will have another excellent meal.

    Went to Acero for an anniversary; knew it would be an expensive night but wanted it to be special. And it WAS - it’s one of the finest restaurant experiences I’ve ever had. The server (Harris) was phenomenal and entertaining. The food was top notch and the wine pairings added so much.

    We enjoyed the 4 course pre-fixe with wine pairings. Each course was outstanding with each pairing spot on. Our server was extremely knowledgeable about each wine and stopped by the table after each course to ensure our satisfaction. This was one of the best dining experiences I have had in several years. We will definitely come back.

    Haven't been to Acero since before COVID. It was delightful. the service was great. We had a nice lettuce salad lightly dressed, a delicious mushroom pasta and the halibut. It's expensive but I would rather go out less and when I do go out have an outstanding meal ... which this absolutely was.
