San Francisco, CA
Here’s what Open Table reviewers have to say: “Tapas to die for with cocktails to match” This was a great meal. The tapas are all very different from the standard offerings and quite delicious. The cocktail recommendations were perfect and the selection of gin is remarkable. The loud music is off-putting, but the food is worth it.

Denver, CO
Here’s what Open Table reviewers have to say: Lives up to the hype “Often times, restaurants that get a lot of buzz are overrated, but Acorn lives up to the hype. Fun menu, good food, attentive service, interesting concept, eclectic vibe… Enjoyed it all around. Looking forward to going back.”

Al’s Place
San Francisco, CA
Here’s what Open Table reviewers have to say: “Al’s Place was a wonderful food adventure. The staff was warm and friendly and were happy to recommend appetizers, main dishes and other items from the menu. The food was playful and adventurous. Many things I had never tried norees after analyzing more than five million.”

Here’s what Open Table reviewers have to say: “The Caprese salad was divine. The tomato salmon bisque was exceptional. The duck entree and the scallops were amazing. Unusual flavors made the fresh food so good we cannot say enough to tell you how phenomenal it all was. Dessert was a low-carb, low-sugar mousse-like with coconut crust that was delicious. Wines were excellent, as was coffee. Go enjoy, you will not be disappointed.

All Purpose
Milwaukee, WI
Contemporary American

Here’s what Open Table reviewers have to say: “The dishes were prepared creativity and thoughtfully. We tended towards seafood and the scallops, octopus, and fresh whole fish were each cooked to perfection and not overdone. The clams, although delicious, had too many clams that were not opened, and a suggestion would be to remove the duds before plating them. Two people in the party had gluten issues, but almost everything on the menu with the exception of desserts was clearly marked ‘gf.’ The restaurant is very noisy, making conversation difficult at times, but when foodie friends come together at a place with exceptional fare, eating takes precedence.
