    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 celebrated our wedding anniversary and we couldn't ask for more. Food was the best so far that I have tasted this year. 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. Food was great then but this time, it is super delicious. Will definitely recommend this to our friends. Will be back for sure.

    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.

    We had an amazing dinner and created a wonderful memory. We have not been to Bacchanalia in a while - trying out all the new restaurants instead. We went for a intimate birthday celebration. We order everything a la carte and had about 9 courses which we shared everything. The wine pairings were excellent and the food so delicious. The service was impeccable. We'll definitely be back and won't wait so long next time.

    Excellence in all aspects was not expected but delivered in a surprisingly exquisite manner. The opulent wine list was the first hint of a fabulous culinary experience to commence. Their foie gras and lamb courses are not to be missed. As are their graceful cheese selections from their own market cheese shop. You will not be disappointed. Bacchanalia is a true gem.

    Took my wife to Bacchanalia for her birthday dinner. Service was excellent; attentive without being oppressive and staff was professional and knowledgeable about foods being offered that evening and wines on both their wine list and pairing menu. Recommend the food and wine pairing menu, however, an extensive wine list is available for wines by the bottle as well. Each course was a work of art and gastronomic excellence! We paid an additional $10 for the cheese course before dessert - totally worth the extra stipend if you're into cheese - we each selected 4 from a list of 12. Bacchanalia has enjoyed the reputation as one of the best restaurants in Atlanta (if not the best!) for years with good reason! Highly recommend - will return! Soon!

    We arrived early and had to wait while others were seated ahead of us, getting us off to a bit of a bad start. Situated on the west side of Midtown, behind the Star Provisions market that sells foodstuffs and kitchen accoutrements. Once finally seated, the evening improved. There’s a five course prix fixe menu, from which you pick options for each course of fresh farm to table food; the tomatoes, crab fritter, NY strip, Berkshire and muscadine souffle were the stars; cheeses a bit of a disappointment. Interesting wine list; service is friendly, helpful and correct. Very noisy. We wouldn’t categorize Bacchanalia as our best dining experience in Atlanta, but it was quite pleasant. Long wait for a cab post meal.

    I was really disappointed. The first course beef tartare was good but I was served a teaspoon full. Second course was a crab fritter is some sort, served cold and soggy. Third course was steak which was delicious. Fourth course was a cheese plate. My itty bitty pice of blue cheese was buried under raw mushrooms and stuff. It was terrible. Dessert was awesome and I usually don't enjoy dessert. This was supposed to be the best restaurant in Atlanta. It can't be.

    We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary here, and are very glad that we did. After reading all of the positive reviews, we figured we couldn't go wrong, and this would be a great occasion to give it a try. We enjoyed our entire experience from beginning to end. This restaurant has the same small plate concept as Restaurant Eugene's, but less expensive. The food well flavored and the service attentive enough to allow you to enjoy your experience without interruption. The rainbow trout was the most memorable course of the meal (very well seasoned and flavorful). They also presented us with a small tiered cupcake for our anniversary. Overall I would rate this restaurant a 5 Star and would definitely recommend going.

    The meal was finely orchestrated, like watching a ballet of pretty food with symphony of taste in your mouth. This is a place to enjoy the taste and presentation of food. The portions appeared to be small, but were designed for tasting and presentation. We had the five course tasting with few wine pairings and it was well over $300 for two people. Still, I would say it was a very good value. Service was 6 stars as was the food and presentation. We had well over a half dozen servers taking care of our every need. Every second at least one server was closely insuring we were happy with everything, promptly clearing for the next course with pallet cleansers as treats between courses.

Everything from the initial ambiance, to the romantic seating, to the fabulous wine list and menu were perfect. I've heard mixed reviews, but after trying the food and loving literally everything, I highly recommend it. The service was great, not overly present but perfectly, seamlessly timed.

    My husband and I go here for our anniversary dinners. We've always thought the food was delicious and we opt for the recommended wine pairings. Our last experience wasn't as positive. We always ask our servers for menu recommendations. I wasn't very impressed by the recommendations that we received from our server, they were hit or miss. My husband also found a fly in his $18 (for a half glass) of wine. Now, the restaurant handled that very well and provided us with a free desert and a free whole glass of wine for both my husband and myself. Overall I thought the food was good, not great, and below expectations for price point and reputation.

    Had dinner for our 30th Anniversary and the experience was exceptional. They were so attentive they knew what I wanted even before I did. I love dining and this ranked as one of the most flavorful and well prepared foods I have had the pleasure to enjoy. It is rather expensive, but the experience is so wonderful it was well worth the price. It is a 5 course meal, but then they surprise you with 4 more chef specials throughout the evening. Recommend to eat slowly to enjoy the amazing combination of flavors. From there, enjoy the memory of a very special evening.

    We've wanted to come here for years so my wife surprised me with dinner for my birthday. From the moment we walked in the door the service was outstanding. The room is beautiful (elegant but not opulent). We ordered the beef tartare, foie gras, crab fritter, sweet breads, lamb, duck, burrata and blue cheeses, fried fig hand pies, and the peach souffle. I would order each of them again in a heart beat. Each course was perfectly prepared. At first glance, the portions seemed small. But after two hours of dining, plus a few extra items brought out by the server, it was more than enough. Everyone should try this restaurant at least once. It withstood the years of hype and justified being the #1 restaurant in Atlanta.
