Bad service mediocre food. Restaurant wasn’t very crowded but we waited an hour for our food while other tables were served. We were finally told there were problems in the kitchen .

Trout served on a bed of broccoli rabe and white beans was excellent. The beef cheek dumpling appetizer sauteed to perfection!

First off, service is very friendly and efficient. The food however was great. Had the blue point oysters, nice sweet and mild brine, deep cups made for plump delicious bites of the ocean. traditional sauces. Recommend. Home made humus served with pita chips..we opted for...fresh carrots and celery, again recommend. Roasted cream of tomato soup was very very good. My son had a middle eastern entree that they customized to his liking and I had the steak frites. Served a perfect medium rare sliced in the kitchen with a creamy peppercorn sauce, served with well done fries slightly salted.. wow. The beef was top quality and very flavorful. RECOMMEND.More

We were recommended to dine here by our B&B, and we weren't disappointed. It was a weeknight during the pandemic, and there were only two other table occupied, and we stuck up rich conversations with the other guests who seemed to be regulars and people...who appreciated good dining. We orders some of the creative choices on the menu and loved everything. The server was very helpful as well. We will definitely come back when we're in the area.More

Last Saturday was our second time at Acacia this summer. Their dishes are inventive and flavorful. We highly recommend the Fried Green Tomatoes with Burrata, the Calamari and the Mango and Shrimp Ceviche as appetizers. My husband loves their pork chop - perfectly done, and...I had scallops on both visits. Perfection in a beautiful setting! Don't let "Fine Dining" scare you away - Acacia has something for everyone!More

My wife and I have been coming here for many years, through various changes of ownership. After a long hiatus, we came here last night for outdoor dining on the patio, adjacent to Route 206. Despite the location, the noise was limited, the atmosphere inviting,...and the service was exceptional. Best of all, the food was spot on. I had the pear salad, she had the green salad, I had the grilled scallops with risotto, and she had the lobster salad with french fries. All simple dishes, but all delicious. It's BYOB, and an outstanding buy. We look forward to our next dinner here.More

It has been awhile since we have eaten at Acacia but in the current environment we wanted to support a local business. We just finished a take out dinner and both meals were very good. My wife had their ‘smash burger’ and thought it was...excellent and I had the ribs which were very good; their fries and pear salads are outstanding. To Acacia’s credit the meals were well packaged and ready on time. We will be ordering from them again soon and are looking forward to returning to their dining room when this is over.More

I don't know much about other great places for great food in this area, this is certainly the one to visit if you are in NJ near Trenton. Being invited, I can't refer the pricing but I certainly can tell that the place offers a...great selection of fine dishes.More

We haven't been to Acacia in almost 6 months, and the things got even better. The food is simply delicious, there are new and exciting additions to the menu, the preparation is perfect, thoroughly to our liking. We have been dining at Acacia for well...over 15 years and are very happy that the restaurant is becoming so popular. On a Saturday night, there was not one table available, so you better make sure you have a reservation. We liked our food so much, we decided to go back next day, on a Sunday, and the place was getting crowded again. We can't wait to go back in two weeks or so. On a Saturday night, finding a parking (despite the huge lot in the back of the restaurant) might get challenging, but there are always spots available, just drive a bit more in, passing the back restaurant on your right.More

It's easy to understand why this is one of my five-star choices. All of the ingredients are fresh, with many locally sourced. These fine ingredients are combined to produce delicious dishes, cooked exactly as ordered. Add to the mix good & attentive service and you...have a restaurant that is always worth revisiting. It is also BYOB, so bring along some really good wines to match the food. The tables are widely spaced, so you won't feel cramped in. Prices are reasonable. My wife and I had the calamari for two to start, we each had an entree and shared a dessert. The total bill, including 20% tip, was $105More
