Excellent service and food! Highly recommended.
Looking forward to my next visit.

A lillr noisy with the business crowd, but a nice setting with excellent service. Value for the money...except for the salad.

Decent food but service needs work!
Food was decent but definitely overpriced. We went for Mother's day brunch ($59/person) and no refreshments were included in the price and the waiter acted like we didn't belong there (not sure if it was a status thing?). We also felt like we were being rushed to leave after our meal.

My experience at Bacchus was wonderful. What I ate was beyond delicious (a similar rating comes from those who accompanied me) and the service was exceptional. The décor and ambience of the restaurant is beautiful truly a gem in Downtown Vancouver. I will most definitely return!

Food and service very good. Gift certificate policy leaves much to be desired.

First Bacchus Visit
I was amazed at the decor when I walk in. I've never been in a White-oriented place as I mostly go to places in Richmond. The staff was very attentative and brought us in to a table by the fireplace. I went for brunch as part of the Tourism Passport holder deal but the level of service was phenomenal. The egg was cooked perfectly and the potatoes were smooth and creamy. I love the scones and muffins too and you could taste they were made fresh. Once I enter the washroom I felt like going back in time, all the vanities are liked what you would see on Titanic a very unique experience. All in all the food was cooked perfectly but the flavors did not wow me. I would definitely come back for a romantic dinner some day.

I had an enjoyable experience at the Bacchus restaurant. The food was amazing, well timed, and well presented. On top of that there was a pianist serenading the restaurant the entire time with nice ambient tunes. Service was great as well, I felt like I was royalty!
5/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food, service, & ambiance were exceptional. Fit for foodies, business clients, special occasions, or a romantic dinner. Compared to other high-end restaurants of this calibre, I found the prices to be quite reasonable, the menu choices nicely varied, and portion sizes more than ample. Valet parking is also available at a reasonable cost and can be added to the bill if desired. As for the noise level, there was live piano music which could be enjoyed up close if dining in the lounge, or as background music if dining in the back part of the restaurant where we were. It was a nice touch without being overbearing. This was my first dining experience at The Bacchus Restaurant, but will certainly not be my last. I was very impressed.

nice food but too many sweets
There weren't enough sandwiches and there were too many sweets.
Non one can eat a scone, 2 tarts, a piece of cake and a piece of pound cake ( by the way, most people don't like pound cake anyways). Meanwhile, there was the equivalent of maybe 1 regular-sized sandwich per person.
So, don't go in hungry--you will be disappointed and end up eating all the sweet stuff just to fill up.

Very Good but not cheap
Bacchus is a high end restaurant and bar with great food and impeccable service, Lunch entrées were mid-sized. I had the Cobb Salad which was rather more iceberg lettuce and less "fixin's" than I have previously experienced. . My friend had a panini which came with a few lettuce leaves but was pronounced delicious. We had a total of 3 glasses of inexpensive wine and we both had desserts. We had a large bottle of San Pellegrino and a couple of coffees (very good coffee) which came accompanied by a chocolate-pecan candy atop a mini-biscotti.
The room is clubby and warm with lots of wood and soft furniture. The is a grand piano which is used during the evening
Our bill (inc. $20 tip) was $132. I had high expectations. I was not disappointed.

excellent food in a refined setting
Yes it is slightly more than we normally pay but for this you get really top-quality food with excellent service and a relaxing setting.
Well worth it!
6/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
From the appetizer through dessert, each choice was fabulous! The Halibut for a main course is an excellent choice,cooked to perfection!!
Appreciated being moved to a window seat even though we had not requested.
Outstanding service was provided.

Gourmet food in a friendly
Gourmet food in a friendly and romantic setting. The piano music played by a very knowledgeable musician was excellent. The cost was in line with the high quality of the food and the setting.

special night out!
Delicious meal, fantastic desert and great recommendations by the waiter!

No need to leave the hotel...
The food was excellent, the service absolutely fantastic, and it was very relaxing w/music in the background and looking out onto the street - however, there are tables in another area that do not look out onto the street if you prefer.
Menu was just varied enough, w/interesting choices that tasted great. Would go back there again in heartbeat. We went back again the next morning for breakfast and again received the same great service.

Perfect Romantic Getaway
I found Bacchus restaurant online after searching literally dozens of fine dining restaurants in the downtown Vancouver area. This place seemed the perfect fit for me and my girlfriend. Whom I was wining and dining for the first time in about a month. This place was PERFECT; everything from the enjoyable, pleasant staff (especially our server Eduardo) to the ambience and live piano in the background. Our food was delicious, our wine most enjoyable with the perfect blend of attention and solidarity. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in search of a quiet, romantic dining experience. Also for the extra special touch, go the extra mile and set up for the flower delivery option prompted through opentable... Oh what a touch that was.

Us four girls enjoyed a wonderful meal and night out in your restaurant/lounge! The food, the ambiance, the servers "Spencer" and "Joshua" for our table were SO wonderful! Give those boys a raise! We hope to be back again soon to try the "high tea" etc and spa next time! Thank you for a wonderful stay! "Sir" Laura Heath and Marcia Kent

This restaurant never fails. I have been going for years and always have a special time.

Dinner at Bacchus Restaurant
Our dinning experience at Bacchus Restaurant was wonderful. We only had 2 nights of dining available during our stay and were so glad that Bacchus was one of our dinner choices. The service was impeccable; our server was friendly, attentive and took care of us beautifully. Staying at the Wedgewood hotel was amazing in itself; getting a chance to dine at Bacchus was the cherry on top.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food, service, atmosphere all made for a perfectly delightful evening. We will go back and tell all our friends!

Quiet romantic gem with great food
We had a great dinner at Bacchus for our 10th anniversary. The food and service were excellent. There are many foodie items, but also a reasonable number of "normal" dishes for the less adventurous.
The wine prices were quite high from my perspective, at triple or greater the bottle price you'd get in the US at least. The bottle we got was $59 at the restaurant, available in my local market for $15.
The ambiance is quiet and romantic. A great place for a couple's dinner, but definitely not for a group of the dudes or girls. The fixtures/booths are very up to date and nice. The atmosphere is sedate but not stuffy, due to the friendliness of the staff.
Overall, highly recommended for a romantic dinner.

fancy birthday dinner
My boyfriend absolutely loves this place so I had to take him there for dinner. While it can be quite pricey (especially for a student), the service was way above and beyond. In my reservation request I mentioned I had a special occasion and would love to sit further from piano. Not only they sat us in the farthest corner of the restaurant, but they also treated my boyfriend with a dessert! We only had water, but our glasses were never even half empty - the server would constantly be adding water to it. The only negative thing I thought of that place was portion sizes - we ordered 2 entries which at any other chain restaurant would fill us up, but here it was barely enough. Overall, very impressive place and would recommend it to everybody
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Memorable and special experience!
Bacchus has to be our #1 choice for fine/romantic dining but also it tops our list for its level of service. From the moment we entered the restuarant to our dessert, we felt like royalty because of the staff made sure we were taken care of at all times. Our meals (appetizer, entrees and dessert) were full of flavor and delicious. Our waiter, Eduardo was one of the best waiters we've encountered in a long time. He was very friendly, helpful and courteous. In fact, not only was the food flavourful, Eduardo provided such exceptional service that he was one of the reasons why we would recomment Bacchus to others. We will definitely be returning to Bacchus in the future. :)

go veg and let them decide...
...what you'll eat! these guys have figured it out two years in a row. spontaneous menu add-ons for those who choose not to eat animals are all part of their repertoire. so much fun!

End of week treat
Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic. Everything about this restaurant is just top notch!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
With all the warm wood paneling, fireplace and lovely art, this is a charming place to dine. If there hadn't been a table full of business men getting tanked and dropping the F bomb, the evening would have been nicer. The singing piano guy was marvelous! The halibut with the risotto was great, very filling, and our waiter was wonderful. Would heartily recommend this place.

Perfect Romantic Dinner
We had our anniversary dinner here - just perfect. From the bar with live piano music to the small but elegant dining room- everything was just wonderful. This seems to be the only place in Vancouver that actually suggests blue cheese olives for your martini! Every where else tried to pretend they had never heard of such a thing. We had a lovely time and would highly recommend.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
I chose this restaurant whilst on holiday to celebrate my 50th. We especially liked the low lighting and the pianist. All food and service was excellent. My desert had happy birthday written on my plate in chocolate topped with a sparkler and the pianist played happy birthday when it was brought out. He then came over to talk to us. Altogether a very enjoyable evening . Thank you!
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Such a lovely place!
We really miss french cooking while we were in Canada. Thanks to Bacchus Restaurant we're able to eat a fine and tasty dinner with local products in a georgeous place. The wine and the service were excellent too. We will keep a wonderful memorie of our last nigth and last meal in Vancouver. It was the best restaurant we've ate in during our journey.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food. Veal piccata & potatoes were wonderful. So was the halibut on crab. Waiter friendly & polite & attentive. Beautiful luxurious furniture that is cozy & soft & rich in texture. Fireplace in lounge & lobby so welcoming on a cold rainy night. Would return in a heartbeat!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
THE business lunch spot
Perfect for lunch near the courthouse. Excellent and prompt service, they even kept my forgotten cell phone for me!
Salmon "pizza" was delicious.

Could Have Been Excellent
Excellent food and ambience but the server's casual attitude didn't fit the bill.
Had he taken the time for some small talk such as why we chose this restaurant for dinner we would have told him it was our anniversary and he could have tried to make the dining experience a little more than ordinary. As it was, what easily could have been a very fine dining experience was simply ordinary.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
A truly civilized place
Old fashioned service, quality and comfort. Superb food mixed with attention to detail. And, unusually, very low noise levels . I am so tired of loud dining caused by the cliche hardwood, metal and granite surfaces. I will pay a premium for low noise levels such as this. Vancouver Restaurant Association; are you listening?
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
lovely place to stop by for a bite
I have always enjoyed this room.
Lush and comfortable. Winter or summer it is always a pleasure to dine here.
The service was very lovely this visit.
I do think they need to improve their wine glass quality.
So many spots (of the this caliber) are way ahead of bacchus.
We will be back.

The free run turkey was the best I have ever eaten. The whole meal was superb. The meal was a classic Thanksgiving turkey dinner with brussel sprouts and mashed potatoes .... but wow what a wonderful blend of flavours. The roasted vegetables amazing! The pumpkin cheesecake .... wow! Thank you Bacchus chef and staff for such a delicious meal!
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
A classy comfortable place to dine. It is elegant without being intimidating or pretentious. All is of excellent quality, food, drink, ambience, and service. They never disappoint.

The food and service was outstanding and they honoured our request to finish in time to attend the theatre.

Graet Food, Overpriced Wine List
Food was extremely good, and the service was above average. This is definitely one of the more classy and elegant venues in Vancouver. The wine list is quite good with respect to selection, however expect to pay a premium over comparable restaurants.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of my favorite places in YVR
Love this place. Such a great vibe with the fireplace and pianist. A classic for groups and couples to grab a drink after work or dinner before/after a show. My Brother was in town from Toronto and we had a nice dinner here. Never disappoints.

Food was good. Service was
Food was good. Service was excellent. We were sitting next to the piano which was loud and made conversation a little difficult, but this is a minor point.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very nice room and good food. The service is hit and miss...sometimes ok sometimes excellent...depends where you are seated on the night good but they do have a couple of very good servers that work there. I didn't get one of the excellent servers this time but he was ok...
Our Entree came much too quickly as we had barely buttered the bread that was served two minutes prior to the Entree arriving.
But I will be back as it is one of my favourite rooms in the city for a romantic dinner....
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very Nice for a special occasion
Wonderful staff and atmosphere both in the bar and the restaurant. The food was excellent.

never fail dreamy vibe
Every time I'm in Vancouver I dream of having a drink with my love at Bacchus. If we manage it, it completely satisfies. Romantic, intimate, beautiful and gorgeous cocktails and menu. I love the brunch, too...Bacchus never fails to be the most special place in Vancouver...I've been coming for fifteen years and will continue.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
A classic dining experience as if from a simpler and better time. We left glowing.
