Diner Reviews
  • "So many lovely little surprises! It was all served with such skilled elegance. Bravo!"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Our lunch experience was wonderful. The service was impressive (quiet and efficient), the meal was just "so good", and the cappuccino & dessert was very delicious. I will return here again and again."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "The food & service were excellent but we found the music, in particular the singing very annoying, intrusive and much too loud. I chose Bacchus as it is one of the few good restaurants in Vancouver where you can chat without shouting so it was very disappointing to find that conversation was so difficult. Exhausting, irritating & detracted from the excellent food & service."

  • "My husband and I made our reservations for dinner at Bacchus through OpenTable and noted that we were celebrating our 10th Anniversary. I was disappointed that this note went unnoticed and was not acknowledged at all. Our server was professional but only lukewarm. I was also underwhelmed with the food. I appreciated the complimentary amuse bouche but it lacked any flare or creativity. I ordered the duck as my entree. Our server informed us that the duck was their signature dish and I found one of the three pieces to be tough and overdone. The flavours were all in all a little boring. My husband's dish was much better. He had the tenderloin and it was succulent and delicious. The desserts were also just mediocre. Overall, not worth the money"

  • "Not up to the standard of a Chateau et Relais restaurant. Had the foie gras for first course and it was disappointing, presented in a bowl on top of a watery vegetable sauté. My main was BC halibut which was bland and uninspired. Desert was a trio of sorbets which I am certain came from a container. Have eaten recently at some if the new BC locavore restaurants in town and found them to be more inventive and better food."

  • "Pre dinner drinks in the bar and dinner in the restaurant. We felt very well taken care of. Excellent food, great service. Check in from the vibrant manager Sarah was welcomed. Never felt intruded upon. Excellent wine list. Will definitely return"

  • "Perfect Ambiance and a fine dining experience. Enjoyed the food, champagne and piano music."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "First time in. From the valet parking attendant to Great service (Kristie was amazing) to the piano man, not to mention great food, as well as the overall demeanor of the staff it was a pleasure that my wife and I ( Orange County, CA residents who have a condo in Coal Harbour) discovered a new "hangout" for us and to also bring friends to."

  • "2 of us ordered the seafood salad that was supposed to have tuna, shrimp and mussels. When we told they were out of mussels (unacceptable to begin with, we thought), one of us asked for scallops instead. She was told "scallops were very expensive and they would charge extra" which we were alright with. Then the waiter came back saying they were going to be $3 extra which we were still ok with, until we saw 2 quarter-sized scallops on a separate plate. Considering the tuna and shrimp were extremely scant, we thought the salad was a rip-off at $19 in one case and $22 in the other. We would probably go back for an afternooon beverage or something because the atmosphere is very pleasant, but I doubt I'll risk another meal at the Bacchus."

  • "Definitely one of Vancouver's best for high quality French food in a great ambience. The vegetarian main was amazing"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The chairs in the "bar" area really need to be updated - the seats are too soft and one sinks into them to the point that you chin is at table level. Some good guality foam support would go a long way ....."

  • "Bacchus set a new international standard of excellence for attentive service for female solo dining experience. A prized table near softly playing pianist/vocalist was a treat. The menu selection and food preparation is great. The dining rooms are beautiful, and the service is excellent. I enjoyed lobster bisque, Trio of Lobster, scallop, and halibut, wonderful reasonably priced bottle of Gavi, opera cake and cappuccino with the best sugar ever tasted (imported from Sweden I think), and a chocolate martini to finish. A perfect final evening in Vancouver!"

  • "My co-worker and I had a great breakfast meeting, server was so lovely and pleasant. not overly attentive but there just as you needed. The coffee was a bit on the strong side, the pastries were delish. The atmosphere made you feel as tho you were somewhere special and the staff also made you feel you were special. Loved it will go back again and will tell friends. Thank you!"

  • "The hospitality, attentiveness to detail and delicious food were outstanding! The servers and chef were so helpful to provide gluten free options and a birthday themed dessert. The complimentary appetizer and dessert were so generous and lovely. Our entire table are still talking about our wonderful experience at Bacchus and we look forward to returning soon!"

  • "It was a lovely night to remember. The ambience was wonderful. It was a very relaxed setting as my gf and I were seated in booth-like table, only fancier. Everyone was attentive and the server wasn't intrusive. The food was presented well and delicious. We had the lamb and the salmon. What made the night more memorable was that the pianist took our 4 requested songs and played it so well with no hesitation. Thank you for a romantic night. "
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "The food and service could not have been better; however, if you want to have a quiet conversation, make sure to ask for a table away from the piano bar. The pianist was excellent and very accommodating but we were a table of 8 and were unable to carry on a conversation. "

  • "Bacchus has always delivered outstanding meals, international-level service and a warm, seductive old-world ambience - including a wonderful selection at the hands of the piano player - without breaking the bank. Of every place in town that considers itself "fine dining", this is the one that gets it exactly right!"

  • "I had a surprise night out planned for my wife and a nice dinner was part of it. We had never stayed at the Wedgewood Hotel or dined at Bacchus Restaurant before. Both were outstanding! We had an early reservation time of 5:30 so we would not be rushed leaving for Wicked playing at the QE. We were seated at a very nice table for two. The restaurant staff were very attentive but not annoying. The timing of plates was spot on. My wife had the Wednesday Halibut with beet salad while I had the veal. The presentation was excellent. Our waiter made some very good wine pairing suggestions to go with our dinner choices. We finished dinner with an apple tart and caramel glaze for dessert. Could not have asked for more. "

  • "It was my girlfriend and I two year anniversary. I took a look online for live music restaurants and this one took a shine. Live piano music every night in a classical-jazz sense mixed with the mild dim lighting makes for a very romantic setting. The wine was excellent. We got the Italian. She had the spaghettini with prawns custom with Alfredo sauce and I had the duo duck brome with blackberry sauce. We both loved our meals. Even each others, through taste sampling. Dessert was the lemon bean creme brûlée and it was the most heavounous dessert I have ever tasted. In the end, they brought a tray of delicious little honey walnut things with the title happy anniversary. They were so delicious even though I was stuffed I had to eat them. "

  • "This is our family's 'Special Occasion' restaurant! So of course when we asked our teenage son where he wanted to celebrate his birthday with the family, it could only be Bacchus Restaurant! As always, food, service and ambience were excellent and we all enjoyed a wonderful evening together. Thank you Bacchus Restaurant! "

  • "Friendly , attentive staff. Ambience is elegant, food is definitely fit for a foodie. The wine list is well thought out, I just hate paying a ridiculous sum of money for a decent bottle of wine. Chef and kitchen staff very calm and confident with well presented dishes. "

  • "The restaurant is beautiful, I have been here many times before. We were here for lunch as a party of 4. I usually sit in the front lounge area of the restaurant but this time we were sat in the back. The ambiance was a bit dark when we first entered compared to the beautiful sunny day outside, but we got used to it quickly. The staff are always very professional and friendly. We were greeted right away and the servers are very attentive and timely. The food is very tasteful, everyone loved what they were eating."

  • "The food was great, good wine list. After we had dinner we decided to have our port at the bar, by the piano man who very accommodating with out requests and a lot of fun to hang out with. "

  • "The restaurant we have gone to for anniversaries for the past 15 or so years closed down, when the owner retired, so we tried this one because the menu appealed and it had good ratings. We were not disappointed. Fairly traditional French and wonderfully prepared. Just the right mix of flavours - neither bland nor overpowering. Service was quick, attentive, friendly without being over-familiar. My husband accidently knocked over a wine glass and the server was quick to clean things up, without any fuss, bringing my husband a new glass of wine even though he said it wasn't necessary. There was a singer/piano player, but not so loud as to interfere with our conversation. I can't fault anything about the evening. It was lovely."

  • "Really enjoyed the dining experience which was largely due to the friendly and professional waitstaff. Food was very nice, halibut in season was done very nicely, but salmon I think was left under the warner too long and was on the dry side. "
