Dinner with family who were visiting from out of town. The food was amazing as usual. I had the watermelon salad and salmon pinwheels. They were a bit under staffed with how busy they were so they were not as attentive as they usually would be. We had to ask for service twice.
Nice place, the service could've been a little better but the food, ambiance, and location was very nice.
Great socially distanced dining experience with delicious food!
Outdoor tables had heating lamps which was a plus for April dining and the menu options were decent for a vegetarian.
Strong assortment of innovative and classic vegetarian items, including homemade vegan burger (sandwich is slightly dry, but condiments can be requested at no charge), perfectly cooked brussels sprouts, truly vegetarian beet risotto, unique lentil hummus, and kid- and adult-friendly french fries.
The manager was a bit short initially when I reminded him about the exact instructions I provided through open table - he was accommodating thereafter.
The food was very very salty . Never experienced a restaurant that put so much salt in every of the food. I couldn’t enjoy it
Great atmosphere and nice music!
Food was as good as frozen food goes. Had the calamari and the branzino, they were both on the bland side. Had the chocolate mousse for dessert, which was good. But then again you can’t go wrong with a chocolate-based dessert.
Chain restaurants offer similar meals for about half the price or less. At least the ambiance was good.
The restaurant has an identity crisis, it doesn’t know what it wants to be. Has a bit of everything but isn’t particularly amazing in anything.
Very much enjoyed the meal, service, and outdoor environment with the space heaters unexpected, and the nearby firepit just lovely. The appetizers were excellent, as were the entrees and sides, though the steak, requested medium was closer to well-done - a common occurrence. But the flavor and quality were extremely high.
What a treat to eat here! The outdoor dining space is fantastic! Tables are more than 6 feet apart, so it felt very safe. The food was delicious and the wait staff very attentive;. It was my first time dining here, but I will come back again and again
Best atmosphere- we really impressed our friends!
This is a lovely spot, but they just can't seem to get their act together. My vodka martini was almost undrinkable (it tasted like a glass of olive juice with a little vodka poured in). The food was fine, nothing special. The service was professional. We've lived in this neighborhood for about 2 1/2 years now, and this place used to be worse. Lately it has improved (both food and service), but our last visit was a bit of a dud. If you don't know how to make a vodka martini, get out a bartender's guide and figure it out! We'll be back, but one day soon we may just give up.
Acacia is great for social distance dining. I love their large patio, and the food is good as well 👍🏼
I always enjoy it there. It's international but a neighborhood place at the same time. The food is fine, but the menu is currently reduced.
Visited for Sunday brunch 7/26 outside on the patio. Fantastic service with excellent safety protocols. Vegetarian options, non-alcoholic beer, and a great location make for a wonderful dining experience. Service was attentive but not intrusive and the patio is set up with safety in mind for both guests and staff. Would absolutely go again.
Acacia is a neighborhood sleeper. It's always nice, and the food is always good. Sometimes the service is a little slow, but lately it has been excellent. We'll be back!
lovely experience given the situation (covid). So happy to have Acacia as a neighborhood option!
We are outside with plenty of social distancing. Our server was especially helpfu.
Drinks were great, food was good, and the service excellent.
One of our first Phase One reopening meals - it was good to sit outside on the patio and eat something I didn't cook for myself! Grilled salmon with quinoa was lovely. It's a pity they are only doing wine by the bottle. I would have loved a glass of wine with my dinner.
Our server removed my appetizer plate about 10 minutes prior to removing my girlfriend's plate, which lacks etiquette. We were seated near the kitchen window and overheard one of the employees complaining that, "...they keep messing up..." presumably talking about the kitchen staff, significantly lowering our expectations. My lobster ravioli seemed a bit cold, but I was incredibly hungry, so I ate it anyway. The food was somewhat okay tasting, but it definitely wasn't worth the $75/plate fixed menu pricing -- especially at the portion size and food temperature that was served. The table setup in the place was far too crowded, resulting in being way too close to the party next to you, taking away from whatever romantic atmosphere remained in there. The tables themselves were far too small (and felt like cheap poker tables, to be completely honest), probably an intentional selection to cram as many of them in the dining space as possible. Some customers at the bar kept yelling about something, which would interrupt the atmosphere of the dining room.
We will not be returning to Acacia, which is unfortunate because it's literally a 10 minutes walk from where we live.
Another excellent meal! A great place for a good lunch - thank you!
The waiter was very nice and attentive. The food nothing special but worked for a quick meal before a nearby event.
We’re very happy they’ve recently started serving brunch on Sunday. I love the warm and local friendliness of the place. The beignets were excellent. Very interesting menu with some breakfast standards like steak and eggs but some other unusual options that are very tasty. Will definitely be back.
Fantastic brunch menu! My family and I enjoyed a great Holiday gathering there. Azi and Yesmine took such great care of us and the dishes were all very delicious !
Highly recommend this restaurant. They are now open for brunch on Sundays too!
The hamburger we ordered for a child was barely edible. I ordered the pear and gorgonzola salad, which came without any pear. The salmon salad was good, as was the zucchini pancake. We are not likely to return.
Fiver of us, a lovely meal with old friends ii came to DC to see
It had been a long time since we had been to this restaurant. We always liked it but had some bad experiences so we stopped going. We decided to give it another try. It took a long time, 30 minutes, for our appetizer to arrive. Had to ask for silverware. Entrees showed up 10 minutes later, they just placed them & left. I had to flag down someone for another drink. No mid meal check but the check arrived without asking. Our waitress was lovely but busy. The outdoor dining area is very nice. Forgot to mention that two of the cheeses we wanted they were out of along with the wine we wanted. Doubt we will go back
Service and food were spotty. Some dishes moderately good, others moderately poor. Place wasn't busy but service was very slow and waiter had to be summoned and reminded several times.
This neighborhood restaurant really tries hard. The food isn’t terribly imaginative but there are a few strong staples on the menu. The chef needs to up his game but the food is okay and the service is excellent. They really want to please. Sit outside when the weather permits.
Great food and wine selection. Sat outside and enjoyed a nice dinner with family
Great small plates and an impressive wine list. Nice to sit outside on a beautiful evening.
Good neighborhood place for getting together with friends if you don't like the hustle-bustle of downtown.
Food and wine were good. For me the negatives were no vegetables included with the entree and no bread offered. Having said that, we did not ask for bread, so I don't know if it would have been available if we had asked.
Uninspired menu, at least one dish was inedible, and service was poor.
strange place with a weird vibe
empty but was a monday
servers were probably 15 years old
food was eh
not fresh - even the special
