My husband and I had lunch
My husband and I had lunch at Bacchus and it was great. It was a cold day when we were there but the garden looks like it will be great in spring and summer.

Great food and service. Backroom
Great food and service. Backroom can get noisy at times, but well worth the money.

It was a treat. The waiter explained items on menu and we loved the prix fix menu. Many choices. Wine was excellent. Would definitely go back again and again.

This is the small and intimate
This is the small and intimate (week-nights) place I would take a special friend. The service reminds one of a friendly smiling team effort. Hard for me to think of a better way to describe that facet of the place. European attitude, helpful, lightly suggestive if asked and unobtrusive. My spouse and I were ere on a weeknight, would probably be noisy on really busy nights. Summer dining in the outdoor area would be delightful. We selected two entrees, one shared appetizer, appetites were pleasantly satisfied. Wine list was good, prices were excellent, quality of everythine oustanding! Now for the diamond! The Mussels! I have eaten them in the Netherlands, Belgium, and France and this preparation equalled any. Tues night great special.

While we would have been seated
While we would have been seated inside, the place was packed with a large, boisterous party and several small children, so the noise level led my date and myself to sit outside. That would have been perfect had there been heat lamps outside; as it was, it was just a touch uncomfortably chilly outside and too noisy inside. Our server/sommelier/hostess was extremely helpful and accommodating and the food was great (we had a difficult time deciding what to order and would like to go back and try the other dishes sometime!). The place must be really pleasant during warmer weather or quieter hours!

I really enjoyed the restaurant.
I really enjoyed the restaurant. The food was delicious, they did not bother us, and the restaurant is warm and inviting. I would definitely recommend it to my friends.

Really enjoyed this restaurant. 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. Try the ravioli, it was incredible. Mussels and rib eye steak were excellent. Not overly expensive which is nice for a change!! Service was perfect. Will definitely go back soon!

Mother's Day Dinner
We went for Mother's Day dinner - 4 adults and tween. First impressions - great charming decor, but no hostess in sight. It took about 7 min for hostess to appear. We were seated quickly and given Mother's day pre-fix menu but no regular menu. The food from pre-fix menu ended up being delicious, and we were able to order items from the regular menu for our son (having menu available on iPhone helped). The food came out quickly and food for my son came with our appetizers as requested. At the end great food outweighted the pre-fix only confusion. Highlights were steak, mushroom ravioli and chocolate mousse. Malbec from Argentina complimented food nicely. We are going back week later to get taste of regular menu.

Delicious food, relaxed atmosphere
We really enjoyed Bacchus. We went for an early Mother's Day dinner, and the food was outstanding. The menu was a special Mother's Day menu, and the selection included Cornish hen, steak, salmon, and mushroom ravioli. Our table tried one of each, and they all were delicious. The appetizers also were very special including an interesting pairing of tuna tartare with guacamole, which turns out to be really good, both in terms of taste and texture. Our only slight complaint was that the hostess also was the sole waitress and cashier, so she had perhaps too much to do. That said, she did it all with good humor and grace, and while the initial service was slower than optimal, it was all very polite and attentive. We will be back.

Delicious, fun dinner!
My partner and I really enjoyed our dinner this week at Bacchus. The food was delicious and the servers were lovely, though it took awhile for us to get their attention. This place was surprisingly packed on a Wednesday night! I really enjoyed my mussels and my partner's gnocchi was incredible.
5/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Delicious food, largely well
Delicious food, largely well prepared. The pork belly had some overdone exterior aspects, but the apple tart was delicious and not oversweet. Recommended!

A GREAT FIND!
Nestled among antique shops and quaint small businesses is this trendy restaurant. The servers were well-informed and attentive. Will definitely revisit.
5/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Both the indoor and outdoor ambiance at Bacchus is great. I have enjoyed several dishes at the French bistro, but our favorite -- or actually my 7-year-old's favorite -- is the escargot. (They also have macaroni and cheese for kids, by the way.) The house wines are usually very enjoyable as well. The servers are always friendly and accommodating, and they are great with our kids. And the new ice cream shop/bakery/cafe next door (same owners maybe?) caps off the evening well!
5/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food is very good ...
The food is very good ... Great variety without being overwhelming. Service has been a bit slow each time I have visited, but if you sit outside with a bottle of wine it's less bothersome. One of my favorite spots in Brooklyn!!!

Lovely Dinner in the Garden
Enjoyed our traditional French dinner in the lovely garden. We live nearby and will definitely return.
5/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
The staff was very nice
We were the only one's sitting outside so they didn't visit us quite as much as might have liked, but they were very nice. Very nice experience, good food. No complaints.

I heart Bacchus!
This was my third time here and once again, Bacchus did not fail to deliver. I always go on Tuesdays for the unlimited mussels (4 amazing flavors to choose from) but I've also had their burger (YUM!) and the skate fish entree (delectable!) The outdoor dining is PERFECT and extremely romantic as is the entire ambiance of the restaurant. I've seen families dine there but the children are never obnoxious and actually blend in with the older patrons, lol. The entire waitstaff is so friendly and attentive (loooove them!) and there's always one authentic French person on staff (the accent just makes you want to ask them endless questions). Also, great music and I've never had an issue with parking either. All in all, Bacchus is a win!
6/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a great experience at Bacchus. The daily special salad was excellent and the salmon and chicken well prepared.
The entrees were served piping hot!
We dined outside which was very pleasant.
6/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, french gem and amazing interior. Staff was very friendly and we always had someone checking on us(but not overboard). There was a wedding party in the back, which added to the already cute outdoor scene.

Charming outdoor dining
I recently visited NYC with my two teenagers to celebrate a successful school year completed. We stayed in Brooklyn and I let my daughter pick a restaurant for dinner. She came up with Bacchus, which turned out to be an excellent choice. We ate outside under pink lanterns and tiny lights in the trees -- charming! The service was quite good -- neither too slow nor too rushed (one mixup on the wine I ordered, but quickly fixed). The food was excellent - we enjoyed all our selections. The duck rillettes and the creme brulee were especially good. Would definitely go again for dinner.
The next morning we visited the adjoining cafe and were not as happy with the service -- the server was rude when I told her we were missing one of our coffees.

Paris in Brooklyn
Took my partner here for our anniversary dinner and was not disappointed. The wine selection is extensive, and the food offerings are fresh and familiar bistro fare. The quality is high, good portioned, well seasoned. Service was good, though it seemed that she was being pulled in many directions. Not a deal breaker. I would return any day.

quick lunch on the run
It was convenient to make OpenTable reservations, however, I wanted at 12:30 reservation and there was not one available. However when I arrived at the restaurant there was no one there, so that was a little surprising. We sat out on the patio which was lovely, however, the music speaker was right over our table and was too loud. The food was great, the menu selection was lovely and if I was in the area, I would certainly go back.

Good food and wine
We enjoyed our dinner at Baccus. Excellent french style food and decently priced wines. We will come more often now.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Usually a 5 star
I would have given 5 stars except this time the service was a little slacking compared to my previous visit (received wine during appetizer not before and bread only during main course instead of the beginning) and the food was not as exceptional as it was in my first visit. Will definitely go back though. This is a great little spot.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was a great time! Coming to celebrate an early birthday! Our hostess as well as server were very attentive. Keeping our water glass filled, as well as our wines. There were recommendations as well. We went with the prefixed and a few more appetizers. Overall a great time! Will look forward to trying out the rest of the menu.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
In a month I've already stopped in twice - once for dinner and once for brunch. The food is really good, the place is clean and you're not rushed out the door. The outdoor area is really pretty (especially at night) and they have a space that can be used for private parties. There was a wedding reception being held there when we went for dinner - very nice. The cafe next door is also part of the restaurant but service there for 2 coffees was really slow.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place
We were celebrating a milestone birthday with a romantic dinner. Great music at just the right sound level. Most difficult thing with the menu is deciding what to order -- it all looks good. Artichoke salad (got wrong order at first, but they did get it right eventually) was superb and onion soup excellent. Entrees were good -- though a bit dry in some of the pork belly and a bit more fat than would like on the ribeye. Dessert sounded better than it tasted (molten chocolate) -- but it was still good. Service was attentive. Port was very delicious and wine with dinner (Cotes du Rhone) was excellent and a good price.
Definitely coming back to try other things.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious and Friendly!
On the night we dined at Bacchus, there was a private event in the main restaurant, so we ate in the more casual cafe. (The full restaurant menu was available.) The food we had was wonderful - duck rillettes, goat cheese beggar's purse, hanger steak, goat cheese gnocchi, chocolate mousse - and Nancy, our server, was charming and helpful. Our bottle of Bordeaux was also great, but it was a little disappointing that they were out of our first two choices of wine. There were so many great-sounding things on the menu that we certainly plan to return soon.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have eaten brunch here
We have eaten brunch here and enjoyed it very much Came back for dinner before B.A.M.. It's very convenient. My two dinner companions were very happy with their meals. My fish was overcooked ,and I'm a person who doesn't want fish served almost raw.
Service was also a little slow. There was a big party going on there and I think not enough wait staff.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, great prices
I was drawn to Bacchus for it's lovely French menu at prices lower than anything else like it. The $26 3-course prix fixe was especially intriguing. The wine was great, and the ambience, especially sitting in the back garden, is very lovely. The food was... good. The butter around the escargots was tastier than the snails themselves. My pork belly was good, though the apple chutney with it was amazing. My boyfriend's steak was at room temperature when served - it seemed to have been waiting for my entree to be ready. But the fries that came with his steak were great. His dessert, the apple tart, was just fine, but I got the illes flotante and it was fantastic. A little uneven, but for the price and the ambience, totally worth it.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful meals at incredible prices - rustic, vintage, French atmosphere. Beautiful garden, lovely service. Have been here several times for their prix fixe and brunch. Everyone I bring here loves the restaurant - friendly folks and good food.

Group Birthday Dinner
We had a very nice evening for a family birthday dinner. Food, service and ambiance were very nice.

French Bistro Cuisine Done Right
Great escargot - nice addition of star anise and the gnocchi had a lot of wonderful herbal flavors and autumnal touches. Would definitely go again.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were looking for a place to dine with nice food, good service and reasonable prices.....we found it at Bacchus!

Provence on Atlantic Ave.
Fine Provencal menu. The fish dishes are especially good. And a good selection of wines by the class or bottle. Attentive service.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
had a romantic dinner. pre-fix menu is the best & the wines are awesome & affordable.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a pleasant surprise on
What a pleasant surprise on a blustery Friday afternoon. The onion soup was thick and well seasoned, beet salad fresh and lightly dressed and the Beef Bourgogne was melt in your mouth. Excellent value wine list in a supporting role. We'll go back!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
I was craving some French food in a cozy little location, but this place, the service and food exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds! Awesome! I can't wait to go back!!!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Just what we hoped for
Perfect after a show at BAM. Small enough and quiet enough to talk, but lively and buzzing too. Great food and wine. Want to go back in summer to try the garden.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
I found myself in the same neighborhood three weeks after last eating at Bacchus. We were attending the theater at BAM and Bacchus was the perfect spot for pre-theater dinner. I was mjosdt happy to return to its fine food and good service.Steph

cozy, nice food
Liked the very nice french food. Cozy feel but music was a bit loud.

Birthday at Bacchus
Very nice restaurant. They have a $ 28 prix fixe that is great. You get an appetizer, an entree and a dessert.
Everything was delicious and the wine list excellent.
The service was very attentive.
I will definitively recommend Bacchus.

Not much to say but great.
Not much to say but great. I had an 8:00 reservation but was stuck at work. I just called and asked if it would be ok to push it back 30 min and without concern the hostess said yes. When we got there she say us right away. Awesome!!! I will def be going back.
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a fabulous dinner for four people. The food was fantastic. Portion sizes were just right. The service was good.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Truly a neighborhood gem
Can't do better than endorse the NYmag review: "In the increasingly crowded world of Brooklyn bistros, here's what sets this one apart: a friendly welcome, reasonable prices, a mellow garden, and classics like hanger steak executed with aplomb." Would also add that the place is tastefully decorated, with wonderful French staff to boot. Will definitely return.
