We love The Acorn! Beautiful atmosphere, stellar service, impeccable food! – This is a staple for us. We have been thrilled with the food, service, atmosphere, everything, each time we have visited. The menu is filled with something for everyone and I haven't tried a single thing there that wasn't delicious and impressive. Its affordable, friendly, and the locatoin is awesome! This is SUCH a wonderful place to visit. You will love The Acorn!
Most exquisite dining experience in Nashville! – After dining at the Acorn several times, I did not think that the food could be topped. However, after a recent experience tasting the new chefs cuisine, my assumptions were proven wrong. The specials are mouthwatering, and the presentation is as tasty as the food itself. The excellent food is accompanied by stellar customer service. Do yourself a favor and make a reservation today!
A Great Find! – Last Saturday was our first date night out since having our baby and we wanted to try something different. The restaurant was awesome from the vibrant atomosphere to the attentive service. I had the halibut and it was cooked perfectly. My wife raved about her fish special. Our server was very personable. We had a very special evening and will definitely be back.
Pushing us out the door – We have been going to Acorn for about 2-3 years now. We decided to head over and have a few "Diamond Martinis" on the patio. The restaurant was empty it was a Saturday night. I ordered my drink and it came out-with out the diamonds (sugar rim) while we waited for our friends to arrive. They got there a few moments later and my girlfriend ordered the same thing, and again it was minus the sugar. Which isn't a huge deal but its called this for a reason. As the waitress is setting down our drink she says to us its last call. Its only 10:30. So my friends ordered another birthday drink, and she promptly -and rudely brought it back out with our ticket. This was just a little rude. The other staff inside were sitting at the bar, almost pushing us out the door with the dirty looks. Our waitress probably paced back and forth the entire time we "downed" our drinks. So don't go for a place for a drink on a Saturday night. They will try to pour it down your throat as your being shoved out the door.
Good Food, Great Service – I was meeting my two sisters in Nashville for a weekend away ( I live in Chattanooga). I called the day before to make a reservation and the person on the phone was friendly and extremely helpful ( she suggested the balcony for atmsphere). We arrived at the time of our reservation and there was no record of it, no biggie since we still were seated where we had requested and immediately. The hostess was a little flighty and gave us only two menus (there were three of us) and no wine list. However, our server was wonderful, playing into our festive mood and making excellent reccommendations. The food was fabulous, you must have the salad with the apples and gorgonzola ( I Licked my plate) and the seviche. My sisters had the special, and loved them. We had the chocolate dessert and great martinis as well . The vibe is great ( several bars hidden throughout, perfect for a date) and the staff seems to enjoy working there. The only downside was a faint smell from the pond, but it was gone in moments.
Overall excellent experience.
An apt slogan. – I took my girlfriend to The Acorn for Valentines day and it was well worth it. Although the chef had specifically prepared selections for the evening, I gave the restaurant heads up that we would need a vegetarian option and they were only too accomdating. Definintely a great experience overall.
Fantasic, fun, friendly -- best seat in the house. – I've had reservations a couple of times, but something has always come up. This past Saturday, I went with 5 friends for a birthday celebration. The staff was friendly and courteous (and very helpful when I realized I needed directions), the dinner was superb (menu was very inclusive of a variety of dishes...and very descriptive), and the environment was warm and comfortable. I couldn't have asked for a better meal or better company! I highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to my next visit to Nashville so I can go again!
Don't wait! A great time waiting to be had. – I have been meaning to go to The Acorn since it opened a few years ago, but for some reason, last week was my first time in. My friends have all been saying how good it is, and they were right. I took a date, and did not make a reservation. The place was nearly full, but we did not have to wait at all for a table. We were greeted with a smile when we walked through the door, and our server was just as kind. Wine knowledge is not my strong suit, and our server helped steer me in the right direction without making me look bad. The food was amazing and plentiful! We both cleaned our plates and did not leave room for dessert, so we are going back there on our second date!
I should have gone years ago! Dont wait, you are missing a great restaurant!
No referral here--Waited 30 minutes for a reservation made a week in advance – The Acorn is a good restaurant, but, it is not the best in town.
Our wait for our reservation was long which was quite embarassing considering we had my husband's business contacts in from out of town whom we were entertaining. The service was slow. The food was quite was average. I thought the veranda was a wonderful feature, I only wish we had been seated at the time of our reservation rather than 30 minutes later.
There are definitely better establishments in Nashville and we will not be referring anyone or dining there again.
New Desserts & Martinis! – Have you heard? The Acorn has a new Pastry Chef AND a new martini list! This is one of our favorite restaurants because of the consistently wonderful food and unusually great service. We always feel like VIP's when we go, and we love trying the Chef's special entrees. We saw the Pastry Chef on one of the local News shows, and had to go in to try her desserts! Wow! Don't miss the Pear and Aniseed Gateaux! We tried two of the new martinis, and they were both to die for! Go sit on the best patio in the city, have dinner and a martini, and save room for dessert!
