There were 4 of us and we shared 6 "small" plates. The Kale Salad was great. Even my husband who is not crazy about salads and certainly not kale loved it. The shrimp and grits was likewise wonderful as was the beef tartar. We ordered...More

First, it would be hard to beat the atmosphere for a fun and lively place to eat. The setting is terrific, especially if you enjoy eating outdoors. I believe this is the sister restaurant to "Oak" (Boulder), but Oak has more consistent service and food....More

The Acorn is on the way to the airport for us, so we eat here for dinner on the way to pick up guests or bring our guests here after we pick them up. We're quite fond of the roasted chicken for two (usually preceded...More

Located in a converted warehouse in an industrial neighborhood, Acorn is one of several restaurants in the Source building. It is a bit out of the way, from both downtown and our airBnB but worth the trip. The cooking is done over a wood fire....More

Had a incredible meal. Shared 4 small plates and a large dish. Each and every dish was delicious using ingredients that melded well with one another. The staff was attentive changing out our plates and silverware after each small dish. A great pallet pleaser.

There is a parking structure next to the complex of stores that houses the restaurant. There is construction all around. A large vehicle might be problematic.
