We got there early and had a few drinks before dinner. The whole place is gorgeous, the drinks were beautiful, the food was delicious, the staff were excellent! I would recommend anytime! We all had such a wonderful night.

Acre is always a bit of a hit and miss. I went with a group of friends this time around for the Italian pop up and we weren't entirely impressed. It took a while for entrées to come out, and even longer for the mains. Some items off the menu were decent - including the baked cheese, duck lasagna, and the gnocchi. However, the focaccia was dense and tasted like a savoury cake, and the other pastas, brussels sprouts, and eggplant parmigiana were a little bland and could've done with some extra flavouring (we added extra parmesan but it didn't make too much of a difference). We decided to skip the dessert tray after experiencing the disappointing mains. I don't think we will be returning.

Would have been another enjoyable trip to the Acre if it wasn’t for the mix up with one of the orders.
I give that it was a busy service but to the girl who plonked a dish at our table with no explanation and walked off ...... thanks.
In doing so it caused much confusion.
One of our guests ate alone while we all waited for our orders to arrive.
Then it was she who sat while we ate.
A word of praise to our original server who explained she did put the order through as it was requested.
No fault of hers at all and the explanation was greatly appreciated.
The food as always was very good.

We walked in and it was boiling hot but the waitress said she would look into turning the heater off but then they opened the windows in the middle of winter and it was freezing cold. Found the food took a long time to come out, we ordered entree's and mains within 15mins of sitting down and it took another 1hr 15mins for mains to arrive. At one point we waited 25mins for drinks. Food was nice but then there are a lot of nice Italian restaurants around. Trout was delicious and a standout. Was disappointed as the whole thing was pretty average and we were really looking for a nice lunch.

Firstly although I phoned ( left messages) and emailed to get to talk to someone about appropriate seating with a 7 week old baby, no one returned my msgs. We were given alternative seating to what I booked as I learned HighTop which I booked as not appropriate. We were given an outside seat in a busy noisey and potentially windy area, which I wanted to avoid. All could have been avoided by explaining what the seating description meant or a brief phone call or email.

Lovely restaurant with a warm ambience. Great for large groups or dates.

Only problem was that it was a long wait between entree and main, however to be fair the restaurant was fully booked.

Thankfully the food was worth the wait. I’m still dreaming about the wagyu steak and fat chips - so good!

The Eatery was so warm & welcoming and felt like you were in touch with nature and organic fresh farms. The service was definitely up to scratch , though I felt that the menu should state what is organic or gluten free by side of dish. Felt as though we had to keep pestering the waiter/tress & even chef.
Overall the food was delicious & service was awesome.
The venue itself has an amazing set up. Warm & welcoming.
