Food is fresh and flavourful. The aspect of grown inhouse produce is obvious. Love the concept! Would definitely recommend to people who are looking to try something different.

Despite the poor service and being ignored by wait staff, the dining experience at acre farm and eatery was pleasant.
Beautiful restaurant like no other with a stunning outdoor area to walk around after a beverage and before a nice meal.

We had been here soon after it newly opened & enjoyed the dining experience. This second time we were there with friends for dinner last Fri night & asked for a table outside as it was very warm inside. Service was not that great - the guy at the front was not very friendly or courteous & the first waitress didn’t understand what we asked a couple of times. The first lot of shared plates were ok- the focaccia bread was cold & didn’t taste fresh at all. The mains were better & dessert was nice too. We were dissatisfied a little about the level of service . Not sure if we’ll go there again.

I’ve been looking forward to dining at acre at the Brickworks Burwood well before lockdown based on my experiences at acre in Camperdown, Sydney.

We had some drinks, the Set Menu, and added some desserts to share between 4 people for $300 total.

What made the evening easy to get going was the OpenTable booking, ample parking, quick access to the restaurant from the carpark, good signage, and service that accommodated a table request on arrival.

The waiter asked if we were familiar with the restaurant, introduced the Set Menu, and left us to regroup. It was great to see a comprehensive Vegetarian Set Menu too. There was an allowance at a modest cost to vary the Set Menu based on the mains preferred by each diner which we took up.

Checking out the gardens while we waited for the mains provided for a nice stretch and decompress. We saw some bees, a couple of quails, and chatted to the Garden Technician Richard, who was maintaining the garden beds and composting.

Both mains and desserts were solid. The lamb and chicken were devoured by fellow diners.

I look forward to coming back and trying out the Farmhouse Restaurant section, and sampling more of the menu in the coming months. It was worth the trip out from the inner city.

Lovely venue but turned into a cold night. I recommend the provision of blankets may be unworkable with Covid. Maybe you could recommend to diners to bring their own whilst we have to eat outdoors. Great food and service

Whilst the food was awesome. Me and my friends felt like the food took so long to arrive. We don’t mind to wait but it’s just that the reservation has a limited time.

But overall it was a good experience :)

Great restaurant on a really cool rooftop. Ocean trout and poached eggs on toast were absolutely delicious. It would be nice to have two pieces of toast instead of one, as the portion was quite small. Pancakes were nice but not spectacular. Coffee is good.

Great service, high regard for cleanliness and presentation. Various options on the set menu for all food intolerances and individual preferences. Keen to see the old menu back in the future but in the meantime thank you for a beautiful meal! Thanks for letting us take half the 3 course meal home, value for money is an understatement.

As first-time diners we really enjoyed Acre. The food and service was very good. Luke was an excellent waiter. We dined with two friends and found the ambience was most suitable for conversation. We thoroughly enjoyed our night and would not hesitate in returning for another pleasant dining experience.

We had a wonderful night catching up with friends - sharing delicious food, paired with fabulous wine. I have eaten here before whereas the rest of the group had not and they all loved the meal. Dishes are fresh and beautifully plated. We will be back. Our server for the night was Luke and he was fabulous- attentive but not over the top.
