Acacia Bistro Scene

The Scene


Located on Connecticut Avenue in the Van Ness neighborhood, Acacia Bistro has become one of Washington DC’s go-to spots for great food and drinks. Our contemporary, glass enclosed dining room provides guests with a light and airy atmosphere for brunch and lunch and an ambient and intimate setting for dinner. Our patio is a popular spot in the warmer months where you can dine al fresco surrounded by a garden of fresh herbs, vegetables, and flowers or grab a seat at the bar for one of our 70+ wines by the glass, craft cocktails, or beers to catch up with friends or watch a game. We’ve designed all spaces in our restaurant to provide an atmosphere that complements our kitchen’s delectable offerings.

Acacia Bistro has been recognized by Washingtonian Magazine as a ‘Top 100 Restaurant’ in the DC Metro area and received Wine Spectator Magazine’s ‘Award of Excellence’ on multiple occasions. OpenTable diners love us for our ‘Notable Wine List’ and ‘Great Outdoor Dining’ and have identified our restaurant as one of the Best Restaurants in Van Ness. We also have one of the best Happy Hours in Washington, DC with an exceptional selection of wines, beers, cocktails, appetizers, small plates, and more! We specialize in Mediterranean cuisine emphasizing Italian, Spanish, French, and Turkish dishes that pair perfectly with our extensive wine collection. We are conveniently located two blocks north of Van Ness-UDC metro stop on the red line.
