    Continues to draw crowds and accolades. Open for lunch and dinner, the restaurant serves some of the city's best cocktails and great wood-fired centric food. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    The wood-fired modern American cooking and the elevated craft cocktail program at Acorn have made a splash in Denver since the restaurant's opening. The restaurant also started serving lunch.

    Very cool industrial decor, exposed brick, graffiti on the walls. Food is amazing - gnocchi was perfect, sweet corn risotto also delicious! Great cocktails too

    Friendly staff, a nice patio, and a decent menu. The BLT was not a BLT, it had super thick bacon and pork and no lettuce. The grilled cheese was amazing though. It was easy to get a table.

    The fried egg and bacon salad was really delicious and not too rich. A good dish, but don't go out of your way if you're between this and something more original.

    Everything about this dining experience was great — ambience, service, and of course, the food. This is definitely in my top 5 fave restaurants.

    Bon Appetit says to get: Rosie's Return (gin, rosé, rose water…); lamb "shawarma" with watermelon, cucumber, and feta; oak-grilled chicken with bread pudding

    The 1/2 chicken was amazing! I almost enjoyed the veggies and bread underneath more than the chicken. So good!

    Acorn has become such a well-deserved destination for dining and cocktails, it's easy to forget that the kitchen serves up a distinctive menu of lunch dishes. Read more

    Get the Farmer's Market Salad, and the Crispy Egg and Applewood Smoked Bacon Salad. The Oak Grilled Eggplant is a must.

    Overall, delicious food; inventive dishes. Lunchtime prices are reasonable - $12-16 for a main dish. Skip the fried pickles, they're not worth it.

    Amazing cocktails. Food is very good but the portions are a little on the small side, especially the duck.

    The blackened perch was a good dish, especially with the creamed corn, but the fish itself isn't the best.

    I prefer lunch here as it's more focused on delicious sandwiches as opposed to smaller items to share. The burger and tots are out of this world. I love how they give you just enough tots - amazing.

    If you're blonde and wearing a bedazzled sweater, at least one of the waiters may falsely make the gross assumption that a scotch drink is not what you're interested in.

    Overall decent food. Definitely not worth the price, though.
