Bacchus - SoNo
This Sono gem just gets better andThis was our third time at Bacchus. This Sono gem just gets better and better. We tried the soft shell crabs; they were delicious, cooked to perfection. For main course we tried the penne arrabiatta and the pork chop. The two dishes were full of flavors and hot off the kitchen. To finish our evening we ordered the chocolate volcano. It was the best we ever had anywhere in the world. We highly recommend Bacchus6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMItalian Tapas!The food is excellent everything that we ordered was well made and delicious. The appetizer plates are made to share with your group which was good because we were able to taste different things from the menu. Some plates I wish were larger but I guess it was because they were so good and I had to share. The drinks were also very good and they have a big selection on wines. We also had dessert and the chocolate volcano with a scoop of gelato was amazing. Our waitress was very helpful and helped us choose our meal, she gave us woderful suggestions. It was our first visit to this restaurant but we plan to return and try other things on the menu.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingThis was our first time at Bacchus and I have to say that my husband and I were extremely pleased with the service we received and the food was absolutely delicious. We will definitely return and will highly recommend Bacchus to our family and friends.Worth every penny!!! Very safe neighborhood with a parking lot across the street.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMRestaurant WeekRestaurant week opened my eyes to the wonderful Bacchus in SoNo. The waiter started by bringing a basket of two kinds of bread and some peppers and oil, which I thought was a nice mixup from the traditional oil and butter. Next my friend and I started with the appetizers. She started with a simple caprese salad (which looked delicious!) and I had the fried calamari with spicy ailoi. The ailoi was not too spicy, which I liked and the calamari were fried perfectly. Then onto the main course - my friend had the rigatoni with hot sausage and cream sauce with fresh ricotta on top, which was heavenly. I had the skirt steak with whipped potatoes and veggies. Finally, dessert! My friend had the cannolis and I had the tiramisu. A fantastic meal!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it!This is our favorite restaurant since relocating to Norwalk! Check it out! Marcos and staff and the greatest!!!!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBacchus continues to please.Bacchus continues to please. With all of the restaurant choices in Norwalk / Fairfield county, I always find myself returning to Bacchus for a drink at the bar, a quick bite at the bar or dinner with friends, family or clients.
Bacchus, in my humble opinion, has the best food and service for the price in the area. I really enjoy their Italian inspired small plate appetizer menu. I had the tuna tartare for an app and the seafood and white bean casserole with a crisp Pinot Gris....outstanding!!!
I am already looking forward to my next visit! Thank you!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, good service. nothingGood food, good service. nothing "WOW." But very solid - 4/5 on all metrics.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great meal at Bacchus!We were there with friends on Friday night. It was a bit empty when we got there, but was very crowded by the time we left. Another terrific meal w/ great service!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent DinnerI brought my mother in for Mother's Day dinner. The atmosphere was cozy and intimate, but still bright and cheery. The staff was attentive, kind and did an excellent job. The restaurant itself, as well as the open kitchen were very clean and well organized. The best part of all was the excellent food! Portion sizes were excellent, not too small, but not so big that you feel you have to stuff yourself. Everything was homemade, very fresh, well balanced dressings and sauces, and examples of cooking perfection. The only issue we had was making only one choice from a menu from which we wanted to order everything. I will be looking forward to going to back soon!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great.Eat in SONO on a regular basis. Have been to just about all the places to eat. Bacchus continues to be our favorite. Terrific staff, from Marco at the door to all the wait staff. Food is always perfect and the portions are great. Not those skimpy "in" portions.
Highly recommend having a terrific meal here.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA delightful bit of SOHO in SONOWe returned to the "scene of the crime" 26 years later. My wife and I were married in New Haven and spent a gifted wedding night at a nearby hotel and tavern that we now found had fallen on hard times. The proprietor told us it was because so many trendy places had opened in So. Norwalk as the foodies have come up the coast. Our sad trip down memory lane was more than salvaged by a WONDERFUL meal at Bacchus. First, whoever organized the wine list to be accessible by price range, with featured recommendations in that range is A GENIOUS!
We shared a delicious salad and I ordered for my wife Talapia Puttanesca - she was in heaven. I had the Lamb Shank. Not only was it scrumptous, the table next to us interrupted to say they were jealous!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Experience AgainWe have been to the restaurant a few times & are never disappointed. The Service, Ambiience & especially the Food are fabulous. We recommend the restaurant to everyone we know. We had the Short Ribs with Mashed potatoes superb I was lucky enough with the Waiters Recommendation to choose the Special Papardelle with Osso Bucco Rgau WOW! I suggecsted they put it on the regular menu it was better than good. If you're lucky enough to go & it's on the menu don't miss it.
Great place, great food go you'll love it.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMBacchus: Consistently PerfectEach time I dine at Bacchus I am presented with creative daily specials, wonderful service and excellent wine selections. Bacchus is that rare restaurant that has maintained the same high standards it had when it first opened. This is my go-to place, hands-down.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply The BestWe live in the neighborhood and make every effort to visit Bacchus at least once a week. The food is fantastic and the Bartender David makes a great drink. Get there as soon as you can and you'll understand our live affair with this restuarant.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AM75th birthdayHad a party of 12 for my mother's 75th birthday, the wait staff was very friendly and very helpful and went out of their way to make sure everyone was happy, including our 2 young children. The food was fantastic, I had the homemade fettucine with beef tips and it was amazing, the risotto go rave reviews as well.Only a couple of choices for young children but it worked out just fine. Look forward to going back with my wife on "date night".4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBacchus-SONO is FABULOUS!Bacchus is always a wonderful experience. Great, great food and terrific service. Tons of wine selections and David will always steer you in the right direction when choosing. Highly recommended for a romantic night out or getting together with a group of friends.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBacchus has been a frequentedBacchus has been a frequented spot now for me for about 2 years. The food preparation is superb with a nice variety from well prepared fish to outstanding pasta dishes to a nice selection of steaks, chops and braised dishes.
All of the great food is enhanced by the great service. Marcos greats you at the door with familiarity, David or Chantal pour your favorite beverage at the bar...with a smile and Sarah is a gracious waitress with tremendous knowledge of the menu as well as the wine list.
The wine list is perfectly matched with the menu; fairly priced, nice selection and delicious.
Bacchus is a great place for a romantic dinner, a group dinner or grabbing a drink and and appetizer at the bar. Enjoy!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThey recently changed theirThey recently changed their menu(still great), but removed my wife's favorite dish. We asked if they could still prepare it for her - they did! They know customer service! This was our favorite place and still is!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first time at BacchusOur first time at Bacchus - not sure why it took us so long, it was amazing. The food was superb and the location is perfect. The only server that night was also the bartender, so it took a little bit to get our order right, but everyone was super friendly and took very good care of us. We especially enjoyed the PEI Mussels - they're a must have for anyone reading this write-up. A little pricy - but worth it.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSusan ReillyThis was our first time at Bacchus and we all enjoyed it very much. Our food was delicious. However, they were out of one of the specials-rack of lamb- which two of us had wanted and it was only 7:00. They were also out of two desserts on the menu-Tartuffe and sorbet. Very strange we thought. Our server was good but perfunctory. All in all though, it was a very nice evening and our meals were excellent, especially the signature chicken dish and the sea bass. We will return. If you go with a group, it is best to take as few cars as possible because parking is difficult in SoNo.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Restaurant in SoNoBacchus is by far the best restaurant in town!

Our servers were so pleasant. And the food was exceptional - I enjoyed a pork chop au poivre special - perfectly done and so flavorful with the coating of cracked peppercorns. My husband went with the rack of lamb (especially since we saw that other reviewers highly recommended this dish). Both dishes were terrific. We started with the mussels - a really tasty preparation with the chorizo. We'll be back!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely atmosphere and veryLovely atmosphere and very friendly service.

We had a lovely table in the front of the restaurant that was very comfortable and quiet enough for conversation. Everyone loved their entrees, salads and desserts.
