    My husband and I are foodies and went here for a special celebration. The experience itself was special enough and we will remember it for a long time to come. However, I cannot say that we will be remembering the dishes we got, save for one or two. We still remember a dinner from ten years ago, because the food was that memorable. I think that the chefs here are creative and skillful; I was a little underwhelmed with taste and textures.

    The most tantalizing food. Esquisite. Intimate. Delightful. You will not go wrong with Bacchanalia. From Corporate Business dinners to a romantic birthday celebration. This place is simply it! I thought I had eaten in some of the finest restaurants. And that was true until I discovered Bacchanalia. We celebrated my birthday. This night. This dinner is something I will not forget. It was simply amazing. I will have to go back soon!!!!

    The food was delicious. We did some but not all the wine pairings and they were very well paired. We took our 16 year old son and he was still hungry after all 5 courses. The portion size detracts from the experience. I don't want the typical American portion that feeds me for 3 days, but a little more for each course would have made for a better meal.

    I took my wife out for her birthday with 2 friends that were celebrating their recent nuptials. I was looking for a special night out that everyone would remember. The wine list was extensive and the recommendation was perfect. The service was excellent but not overbearing which is exactly how I like it. The menu offered options for every course and each time we asked for recommendation we were pleased with the results. I got a special cheese cart option for the 4th course and since I am not an expert I let them surprise me. It was absolutely fabulous! Really every course was delightful. Bottom line is while I can't afford it regularly, for special events it was worth it as we had a spectacular time that none of us will soon forget.

    Overall our meal was very good. But be prepared to spend a little extra, yes beyond the prix fixe menu, if you want be full after dinner. And I don't know what was going on, maybe our bottle wine selection wasn't expensive enough, but I ended up refilling our own glasses on multiple occasions. It didn't impact my enjoyment of the special occasion and meal but baccanalia is not going to earn any Michelin stars with service like that.

    This was a unique experience for us. We are not from Atlanta and had a devil of a time finding the restaurant even though it was not far from our hotel. The price fixed tasting menu with wine was exceptional. So many choices!!! And they all were excellent. We shared them and it was so much fun. Recommend this as a fun way to celebrate an anniversary like the couple next to us or just for great time.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIP
    Dined on 11/5/2014
    First of all, the tasting menu was worth a LOT more than the $85 prix fix. The portions were small, as is typical, but the quality of the food, the diversity of the flavors, etc., made it a great deal (at least to this Chicagoan). Service at the bar was great (although they could use 2 bartenders during busy times-I often waited for water to be refilled because the 1 bartender was running), and the view into the kitchen was very cool. Finally, they had many wine selections, and some really good choices for 1/2 bottles. The negative? I ordered an 18 year MacCallan, and it was $51! Even by Chicago standards this is extremely steep. Perhaps I should have asked (or been told) that a very carefully measured shot would be as much as dinner.

    I had to travel away on my birthday for work and wanted a nice place to eat as my consolation. This came as a recommendation from a former native and the menu looked very promising. All I have to say is that this is seriously in my top places I have ever been. An unbelievable experience. Don't rush the meal, you are taken care of. Every dish is made to perfection. The wine paring is spot on (except for one). As a caveat, I have a peanut allergy and they accommodated me in every way. They truly pay attention. Next time I am in Atlanta I will be here for sure.

    I had not been to Bacchanalia for several years. I took my wife for her birthday and we really loved the food and the vibe. Great to see this Atlanta classic maintaining its high standards. By the end of the meal I felt like the guy at the end of Monty Python's "The Meaning of Life" and I had to ask them to box up the "thin mint."

    Everything about our experience was perfect. The service team was professional and attentive, but still let us enjoy our romantic dinner. The menu consists of 5 courses, but there were a few little extras brought out throughout the meal. We upgraded the cheese course and we were blown away! We really liked one of the cheeses, and we asked about it later and he confirmed which one it was for us. Bacchanalia was the perfect place to celebrate my husband's new job!

    Bacchanalia is a fine dining experience. It is typical of high-end dining experiences in that the service is fantastic and the food is good. However, if you are not accustomed to that, there will be a shock factor - quality of food is fantastic but the quantity is extremely small, service is fantastic but sometimes overwhelming. I would recommend this for special occasions and a fine-dining experience.

    Bacchanalia never fails to impress. The food is beyond delicious - it's a great experience. You find yourself asking "how can someone design such incredible dishes" because they're like nothing I've ever seen. "Inventive" only begins to scratch the surface. The food was awesome, the service was attentive without hovering, and every single member of the staff made us feel welcomed. I won't wait nearly so long to come back again.

    Decided to come here after a friend recommended it. I already knew I'd be dropping 200+ for 5 small portioned meals, but I was okay with that. The main reason I went was to celebrate my move to Atlanta. The food was unique, maybe a bit too ambitious with the flavor combinations they were going for, however I'd still recommend trying to finish each dish. I don't drink so I didn't check out the wine list. However, I hear it was quite the list to choose from.

    I made a big mistake. I reserved a table for our wedding anniversary at this Restaurant. What a waste of money for all of you who have dined there. The place look like a cafeteria, with white tiled walls, basic tables and very uncomfortable chairs. It seems like there are 20 waiters moving constantly, shaking the floor of this old looking building, so you feel like on a train with constant rumbling. The noise? Oh boy, good luck maintaining a romantic conversation! It is like day trading inside Wall Street. I cannot comment on food (which seemed great looking at the menu). But who cares. I'm paying for the entire experience and Bacchanalia fell big time to all its other important elements.

We have been to most of the top 50 restaurants in Atlanta and to us, this is the No. 1 restaurant !! Service was awesome. We have been here a few years ago.

    Always a great experience. First time dining with new menu of 5 course price fixe. Three courses followed by cheese course and dessert No pressure when you arrive they make sure you are comfortable and let you take your time to look over the menu and take the time to go through each part of the menu. Each course had a nice variation of items to choose from. Waiters have full knowledge of the food and wine on the menu All of the courses were outstanding, ample time between courses for you to take your time and enjoy them. Presentations were perfect You can see and feel the attention to the finest of details across the board AS usual everything was perfect

    We enjoyed the five course prix fix menu. There were several selections in each course from which to choose and all were exquisitely prepared with interesting well balanced flavors. For women the portion sizes were just right and we left the table satisfied but not overwhelmed or over stuffed. Three delightful amuse bouche appeared throughout the evening and the sweets tray after dessert was the proverbial icing on the cake. If you love great food and service this is a must visit restaurant.

    I live in Washington, DC which, no doubt, is known for some high-end dining. I was in Atlanta for my mother's birthday and chose to celebrate it at Bacchanalia based on some media recommendations. Besides having sampled some of the best restaurants in DC, I have had some wonderful dining experiences in NY and several countries in Western Europe. This restaurant rivaled all of them. I can say, without reservation, that this is best, most balanced meal I've had in quite some time. The choices within each course were ample enough to please anyone's taste and the well considered wine pairings complemented everything perfectly. The portions were perfectly sized and each course built upon the last and prepared you for the next. Five stars.
