We have been dining at Acacia for many years now, under two successive ownership, and the food has been consistently good, and the service remained excellent. The restaurant has recently undergone interior renovation, the decor has changed a bit, and the dining area is a good combination of cozy ambiance and enough privacy, with a good distance between all the...

The duck breast is a must. Was done a very nice medium rare, good quality and flavor.. They will accommodate changing your sides to match your palate. Also recommend the pork belly. These two dishes are done as well as anywhere. Nice friendly staff and management. Great ambiance. it's BYOB, so don't expect them to pour your wine after uncorking...... More

We used to go to Acacia many, many years ago (like 15 or 20) but at some point the restaurant just got awful. However, we were desperate to find another BYOB restaurant locally which was good and I read a review of the new Acacia, with a new chef owner. So we decided to try it out. The verdict is-... More

We've been wanting to check out this place for a while. Wish we checked it out in the summer, so we could've eaten outside. The best part of our meal was the salad we split as an appetizer. It was a shaved brussel sprout salad. Awesome! I had the scallops with roasted fall vegetables and it was delicious. Very light... More

This gem never disappoints! Excellent food with great service on every visit👏👏. I love that it is BYOB and that the tables are not as close together as they used to be. You can have a conversation and not feel like you are disturbing the next table. Come for the food, relax and enjoy!

Food is great and innovative, services was wonderful. Have been there several times and never been disappointed and it is a BYOB. Not inexpensive, but worth every penny. Best for special occasionsNice ambiance for a relaxed and romantic dinner

Okay menu, decent ambiance, reasonable service, but overall not worth the price. Not a place I'd go regularly. Parking is easy.

We love this place and switch off between Vidalia and acacia. More intimate, more formal. Excellent food and BYO. We meet friends from central New Jersey there. Meat dishes are superb.
