    The fish plate was excellent, as was everything else. I think two more main plates structured so as to maximally diversify that course would be beneficial. It's interesting that with the visual unfashionability of noise reducing ceilings and perhaps the increasing unease with hearing our inner voices, conversation has become more difficult. In Germany under the same conditions in the same level of restaurant, everyone is using their 'inside' voices and everything can be heard, and the restfulness of the experience is appreciated.

    Acre is unique and current, with exceptional fresh seasonal food. The use of fruit is particularly good: the pickled strawberries with the burrata, the apricot compote with the falafel, or the oranges with the fish. I cannot wait for another season to see what comes next.

    We had a reservation in the upstairs dining room but they didn't have a table for us. They asked us if we wanted to wait indefinitely for an upstairs table or sit in the downstairs cafe. Being that we didn't want to wait we choose downstairs. We were sat at 2 mis-matched tables of different heights for or party of 4. The food was OK and heavy on bread which is great if that is your liking, not so much if you are gluten intolerant. Wife said she wouldn't return but I might if friends invite us and they really want to go.

    Acre is my new favorite restaurant in the East Bay. The upstairs dining space is wonderful - elegant but warm, convivial but not noisy. The food is extraordinary, every detail thoughtful and precise. The service is flawless. There’s nothing I would change, except perhaps to diversify the menu a bit (no need for two braised dishes with pasta and two pizzas on a menu with fewer than 20 total items). Oh - my friend’s cocktail was the best mescal drink I’ve ever tasted.

    Our overpriced chicken was extremely dry, but for sitting in broth. The service was lacking, across all employees. The salad was inedible, with seasoning for meat on arugula leaves without any moisture.

    Wonderful dining experience. From the greeter to the wait staff to the bus staff the service was outstanding. The menu is relatively limited but that didn't stop us from having a terrific meal. We ordered seven small and medium-sized dishes, and every one of them was a winner. Hadn't been to this restaurant since it opened last December, but we'll be back.

    Sorry to say this as we had high hopes for Acre, Oliveto's replacement, but this meal missed on all fronts: Service: We had to wait at least 20 minutes to receive our appetizers and then another 45 minutes after we finished the appetizers to get our mains. It wasn't the servers fault as the food just didn't come out. Although the server didn't acknowledge the wait or visit us during the wait to explain. Food: There were 3 of us and the appetizers and the mains were a big disappointment and we disliked everything we were served. The Frito, which should have been crispy was anything but and laying in a puddle of sauce didn't help. The Acre salad had too much vinegar and was so doused with sumac it was like eating dirt. The Pappardelle with Rabbit was way too salty. The chicken was a weird disaster - we didn't understand it, the bread was toasted and laid in a puddle of soup covered by greens so it was soggy and unappetizing (why grill it if you are going to turn it to mush). The chicken itself was nothing special especially after soaking in the soup which made it loose all crispness in the skin. The branzino was also disappointing. It was covered in a heavy gluey romesco sauce that overpowered the delicate fish and it had a few large olives and a sprinkling of chopped almonds which didn't add anything. There was no veg on the plate, just the fish for $38. This was our second visit and the first time, half our party enjoyed their meal and the others didn't but at least the meal timing was o.k. Last visit the branzino was divine, super crispy on both sides with the tender flesh still moist...sadly they changed it up for the worse. The room is lovely and it makes a nice spot for a real restaurant experience. I hope they can get it together and re-think the menu and kitchen timing but we wont be back for a while.

    Service started out good and by the end was non existent…food was good, my potatoes were too mushy, and my poor dad’s shrimp Louie looked like cafeteria food and it wasn’t even dressed. Ambiance was nice, and glad mom still enjoyed her Mother’s Day lunch.

    Over priced, average food. $10 for a tiny mocktail that was mostly ice. Soft shell crab sandwich, did my crab crawl away? Where did he go? Why can't I have pepper and salt at my table? So many questions... Waitress polite but slow, items appeared in random order.

    The service was excellent. The food was all high quality. However, I think that the restaurant is very overpriced. Also, they were playing music, and it was not "dinner" music, which I didn't like. I miss Oliveto.

    I've been wanting to go to Acre since it opened - as I heard David Jacobson was hired by Acre after he became the 2022 Real California Milk Pizza Contest grand prize winner. We went last night to celebrate our anniversary. All the food was very tasty and beautifully presented. The winning Gold Rush Pizza was melt in your mouth delicious. The crust, I learned, takes 3 or 4 days to make. The texture is so different from any other pizza crust - and delicious. Can't wait to go back and try a different pizza and I also want to try their Branzino and some other dishes on the menu.
