Bacchus - A Bartolotta Restaurant
excellent food and ambienceThis is the place to go for that special occasion, or for just some great food. Really good customer service.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMA Food ExperienceIt's not very often that I find food that moves the soul. Bacchus was unbelievable and unforgettable. I had the Maine Lobster Ragout with Scallops as an appetizer and the Banana Split for dessert. Every bite was something to remember. I highly recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for a romantic evening!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerWe have always tried to make it to aBartolotta restaurant for special occassions, but especially Bacchus. This place tops our list in terms of service and ambiance. From the time the valet whisks our car away to the hostess walking us out after our meal, everything in between is just top notch. The service is second to none - we have not found a resturant in the Milwaukee area that can match this! We will definitely continue to visit Bacchus when we need that special place to celebrate that special moment.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dinner!My wife and I went here for an Early Mother's Day dinner...very impressed. Great location with a good view- valet parking in a private lot on site is also a plus. Wait staff was very knowledgeable and attentive. For an appetizer- we had the spinch and rissotto fritters with the fondue cheese...delish! I had the filet for my main course and it was tasty, but it arrived pre-sliced...I had expected a standard filet. Would recommend that the menu be modified moving forward so diners have expectations set ahead of time. My wife had the salmon- she loved it. Dessert was chocolate mousse- absolutely loved it. Overall very good dinner5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA must go!It was such an incredible experience! The food, environment, and service were all very excellent! A wonderful place for a special occasion. Well worth the money!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service are excellent.Food and service are excellent. Portions are small and prices are high. Not a place to go if you are hungry or looking for a lot of food.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMMore than you expectBacchus always delivers more than we expect. Great food, great wine and fantastic service.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first course was a cheeseOur first course was a cheese course which took a surprising long time to come out, but other than that, the wait staff was very attentive and friendly and the food was very good.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMKurt was a great server. KnowledgeaKurt was a great server. Knowledgeable about the menu and all his recommendations were fabulous. The food was excellent-from pan roasted chicken to veal chop to salmon. Salad was amazing as well as desserts. The only negative thing was that we were sitting under a ceiling vent that was blowing out very cold air. We had to ask 3 times to have it turned down or off, which they did and the rest of the evening was perfect.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMA League of Their OwnFabulously decadent food, impeccable service within an atmosphere of class and grace. A Milwaukee dining establishment that delivers from start to finish in every aspect. SOLD!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely restaurantThis is a really wonderful spot which if you have the right table, will give you a lovely view of Lake Michigan and the green space along the lake. It's located just off the lake in a quiet neighborhood. We had a 5:30 res which may account for the moderate noise level. We sat in the sort of sun porch which was bright and airy. We elected to have small plate choices: the rarebit, which includes a nice sized piece of pork belly was our favorite and we ordered a second one. We also tried polenta with mushrooms, risotto cakes and a pasta. Last we chose three cheeses, all Wisconsin, all recommended by our server, and all completely yummy. Service was very attentive; there when needed, absent when not.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThere was a large party inThere was a large party in our area that was quite boisterous. All in all, everything was wonderful-as always.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery aspect of our visitEvery aspect of our visit was top notch. The food was absolutley perfect! I will be a return customer!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMArguably the best food inArguably the best food in town. But, how does the same bottle of wine here cost signifigantly more than at Zarletti's?4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWill be backExceeded my expectations! Great service and food. Althogh thw wine list was amazing the wine was overpriced. Will definitely be back!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter John was particularlyOur waiter John was particularly good. The evening was in celebration of my wife's birthday and exceeded our expectations.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food made with freshExcellent food made with fresh ingredients. The wait staff was very attentive, but could have showed more personality/been friendlier. Our waiter brought us a side of risotto, saying that the chef wanted us to have it while we waited for our entrees, implying that it was complimentary. However, we were charged $10 (for about one cup of risotto); we wouldn't have accepted it, had we known we would be charged. Also, we were forced to use the valet service, and pay for it, which was ridiculous, because the parking spaces started five feet from the restaurant's door, and the lot was small.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFor an evening of fine dining,For an evening of fine dining, Bacchus is tops. Each of the Bartolla's fine dining restaurants rivals the best anywhere. The staff was friendly, courteous, knowledgeable, and they graciously handled our business meeting special request. The Food and Ambiance were what one would hope for when planning a special evening. Thanks!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMI.SardasWe celebrated my husband's 55th birthday last night. The wait staff was top notch, very receptive and accommodating to our requests, jovial with a good sense of humor, all the while being very professional and not intrusive. Each dish we had was delicious and the filet mignon was perfectly cooked. Thank you for a great experience, once again.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMLooked like a nice NYC restaurant.Looked like a nice NYC restaurant. Bread was overcooked (almost hard as a rock toasted) and steak could of had some veggies with it. Overall good food, but for the price one would expect perfect food. It was quieter on the inside, which is what my partner and I preferred. It got a little cold during our sitting. Be prepared to spend at least $100 for two with no drinks.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect!Perfect evening out! The food was fabulous and the servers are amazing.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster Brunch was even betterEaster Brunch was even better than anticipated. The salmon appitizer looked as good as it tasted, the braised lamb and egg-crab cake entre's were flavorful and just the right proportion. Deserts were pleasing to the eye as well as the palet.
The service was timed to the point that you barely realized they were there.
Add the sunny skies to the view we had overlooking the lake and park, and it was a memorable Easter experiance.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWent to brunch on Easter Sunday.Went to brunch on Easter Sunday.
