Bacchus Wine Bar & Restaurant
High end gourmetNot for those looking for the usual bar food. Classy, pricey, but so worth it.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious FoodThe food at Bacchus is very good. The portions are generous and well presented. The prices are comparable to similar restaurants. The only minor drawback is that the service is slow. Plan to spend an extra hour on dinner.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe seafood features are alwaysThe seafood features are always outstanding.

Absolutely lovely!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLast Thursday was the secondLast Thursday was the second time that my wife and I ate at Bacchus and we were equally impressed. The food was beautifully prepared (I have never received salmon, encrusted in ground pecans) so perfectly cooked in a restaurant. We will most definitely return again the next time we "shuffle off to Buffalo" from Ontario. On the previous visit a vegetarian friend tried their zucchini pasta - which induced me to locate a vegetable grater that would mimic what they served.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMA very nice surprise. WentA very nice surprise. Went with friends. Service was great and attentive. Atmosphere was upscale but relaxed in that you did not feel uptight or nervous. The tables are not crowded together so that you do feel that you are in a nice and somewhat hip dining room but without pretension but rather celebrating the people eating wonderful food.
The menu could be more adventurous but then again there are other restaurants where people go to try new things. This is a place to go and have very well prepared food.
The food was fresh, well prepared and better than expected. It satisfied the foodie and did not scare off the casual diner.
Great experience will recommend that friends go to Bacchus and will happily return4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat night out.We had a great dinner before a show at Shea’s Theatre on a Saturday night. The restaurant got quite busy after 5:30-6 and there were two large groups celebrating birthdays. If you were looking for a romantic dinner the tables closer to the party would have been disappointed. The wait staff was great, always around filling water glasses clearing plates but you didn’t feel rushed. The food was good, I had two small plates, good portions, the beat salad and mussels. Both were delicious, I also had a side of risotto which was a generous portion. My husband had bone in veal. He was a little disappointed with the veal it came charred from the grill on the outside and a little to overdone for his med/rare tase But he said it was still good.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love it..it's the onlyWe love it..it's the only restaurant we go to when we go to SHeas for a show?4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and great wineGreat food and great wine make for a great restaurant,...One of downtown Buffalo's best.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I decided toMy husband and I decided to try Bacchus as a pre-theater place to eat. We were pleased with the ambiance, excellent service and quality of our meals. Between us, we had the pecan crusted salmon (wonderful!) and the duck breast (also very tasty, but I'd edge towards the salomon if pressed). A short walk to the Andrews Theatre on Main St. made for a very delightful evening.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe'll be back!First visit. Casual yet elegant atmosphere. Excellent food and excellent service. Truly fine dining. Drove to Buffalo from Cleveland to see a concert. We eat out a lot and love to try new places. All agreed the drive was worth it just for the meal alone! Walking distance from the Hampton. Short cab/car ride from the Elmwood Strip. Highly recommend it.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBacchus great food and serviceThe service and food are excellent at Bacchus. We also like the downtown location. The chairs were exceptionally comfortable as well. The prices were appropriate to the level of food, and there were both affordable and expensive wines on the list. I had the best grilled pork chop in my life with a perfect side of sauteed potatoes, apples, cranberries, and spinach. We strongly recommend it.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBacchus is my favorite restaurantBacchus is my favorite restaurant by far. My husband and I go to Bacchus any chance we get! We love the location, the ambiance, the service and of course the food. I love that there are always specials and that the entrees come with sides that are paired to go with the meal. I have never had a bad meal, in fact, every meal I've had at Bacchus has been outstanding! I have tried almost every staple entree on the regular menu and they are all amazing. The service is also fantastic. We really can't say enough about Bacchus! Love it!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful!Our party of six had a wonderful experience here. Service was great, and all of the food was delicious. Everybody loved what they ordered. Some ordered small plates, and others ordered large plates. Everyone was happy. The only criticism, and it's a minor one, is that they were out of the Gruner Veltliner wine they nornmally have available by the glass. The small plates we ordered included three different salads - Caesar, pear, and wilted spinach. I loved the wilted spinach salad! Other small plates included tuna tartare, steak (carpaccio) and eggs, and calamari. Large plates included Ahi tuna, duck, and a vegetarian pasta entree. Again, everything was great.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWent with my girlfirend forWent with my girlfirend for our two year anniversary and absolutely loves it. Service was excellent and the food was even better!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
