One of the best over all experience we have had the please of.
First time in many years of regular visits that we were disappointed. The new space is great, the service was fine, but the food was just average -- other than the crab fritter, which is always excellent.
Awesome as always, finest staff.
Always a wonderful experience, never disappoints.
Looking forward to trying the new location
Red cow Parmesan cheese was outstanding; the service is always amazing.
We've been going there for my wife's birthday. We love the food. The changes over the years have been good to keep the experience fresh and interesting. Last night, we felt that the wait staff seemed rushed. They were courteous but seemed hurried; this takes away from the overall experience where we were used to sitting down for 2+ hours and enjoying the evening. Last night was the first time we were in and out in under 2 hours.
The tasting menu was superb and unlike many other prix-fixed menus that designate only one or two options for each course, this one has four or more. It's definitely a splurge to do the menu and the wine pairings, but having the choice of a half glass per course helped, but totally worth it and would do it again (though can't do it too often w/o damaging the wallet and the waistline). Beautiful presentation and the flavors were amazing. Thanks for a wonderful evening and experience!
Best restaurant in Atlanta. Truly a culinary delight.
I had noted on my OpenTable reservation that we were celebrating my husband's birthday, and he was wished happy birthday by the hostess upon our arrival. However, she must not have communicated this to our server/kitchen because our server never asked if we were celebrating a special occasion, and my husband didn't receive a special birthday dessert. This was disappointing.
Not many gluten and dairy free options. They did make an effort but all I got was some sliced apple, an orange piece along with a sliced beet. Not worth the $95 price.
Excellent food and outstanding service all at a high price (which I was prepared).
We had an early Valentine dinner. It was my husband's first time to the restaurant and we were both very pleased. The service is beyond excellent and the flavors are as well. The signature crab fritter is a must have. The quality of the experience makes this money well spent.
Good food but expectations were probably too high.
We were so excited to dine in this restaurant. We had read the great reviews and they far outweighed the negative. But after our dining experience we went back and read the negative and they were spot on. Our reservation was at 8:15. We arrived on time and were seated. It's a noisy environment but it wasn't awful. Our waiter arrived almost immediately. He set down the menu, explained the four courses took our cocktail order. Within a few minutes our drinks were in front of us and it everything switched into over drive. He spoke fast, he moved fast and he took our order quickly. We had not even finished our cocktail and the first course arrived. As soon as it was finished it was whisked away and the 2nd was placed in front of us. We both ordered 1/2 glass of wine they recommended and didn't even finish that until after our 3rd course which came about 15 minutes later. The 3rd is cheese so it is very small. At that time he took our drink order for our dessert. Dessert, drink and OUR CHECK all arrived together. It was exactly 9:15 on the dot when we finished. We were stunned. Our meal was $300 and we finished in 1 hour with the bill paid. We never asked for a check. We never relaxed over our food. It was a classic turn and burn. When we went back to read the reviews it seems this is the norm. While the food was good, it all happened so fast we didn't get to experience it. I have waited in line longer at a Chick fil A At lunch than this restaurant. Definitely no longer a top spot.
The high-end food options and service level, combined with the eclectic mid-century casual atmosphere creates a unique experience. The service is as good as it gets in Atlanta. The food choices are unique. At first view, may not meet the interests of all diners, but even the most unexpected items like the popcorn caviar and shot of cold parsley soup are wonderfully flavored and presented. This is a much visit for the refined diner in Atlanta.
Oh my lird the food here was So fine! Loved it love it. Had the a la carte lamb with another piece candied, the cheese selection was great and overall super. Service was intrusive but only had to tell the waiter to back off until we were ready once. Reservations was a bit of a joke as had a 645, asked if could make it 7pm, said no but restaurant never 2/3 full thruout dinner. Other than that super fine and will return
Simply phenomenal and such a great experience. Well worth the money!! All the food was prepared, cooked, and plated perfect! My wife is a chef and loves this place!
Very nice evening. Great bottle of wine. Service was very good, thoughtful. Will go again...
We had an anniversary dinner at Bacchanalia, and it exceeded our expectations. The 4 course dinners were outstanding, particularly with the wine selections (I had while my wife did not).NY Strip as good as I have had, and the service was wonderful.
I thought the food was fantastic, but over-priced. I would not recommend for someone who's on a budget. But every course was mouth-watering and was served rapidly. The suggested wine pairings were spot on. Don't even get me started about the cheese - yum.
It is very quite in the restaurant and the service seems a little snooty, but that might be the atmosphere they are going for - flashback to cotillion days. Having said that, I thought the wait staff was very friendly and helpful.
If money isn't an issue, and you're looking for a delicious, fancy dinner, this is the place!
Great food. Service was top notch. Wine was matched with food very well. Expensive to say the least but overall was worth the money.
We have been to this restaurant many times and have always been very happy with both the food and the service. The food remains excellent but we were very disappointed with the service, always having the impression that there was a "rush" to get to the end/go through the required (by the wait staff) motions established by the owners.
For example, the entrée had barely been served when we were asked how it was.
Example 2, we were asked very early in the process if we would like coffee/tea/after dinner drink.
Example 3, we were presented with our check before we asked for it to be delivered.
This is the type of restaurant where you expect the service to be excellent. It was not, indeed you would probably get better service at a chain restaurant than we received that night. It was very disappointing.
We've been here before and had looked forward to returning.
Every bite was an experience
Impeccable food and service. Very clever flavour combinations and pairings. Loved the little inter-course bites.
Awesome as always
I've been wanting to go here for a long time. It's a very special place. They also kept bringing out additional food when we didn't even order it. Even after we paid for the bill and we're leaving, the store in the front gave us bread. The dinner itself was delicious and had great flavors. Definitely would recommend this restaurant.
My favorite restaurant in Atlanta. The food and service is amazing
My experience was great. Food was great, servers were knowledgeable, atmosphere was cool.
Bacchanalia was superb as always. It is my restaurant of choice for those "special occasions." Excellent food, wonderful service and a warm ambiance. Thanks to all the staff at this Atlanta gem!
Christmas Eve dinner at Bacchanalia was, as always, absolutely wonderful! This is our 14th year celebrating at Bacchanalia & I am already looking forward to our 15th!
The overall menu does change somewhat each year, but, when available, you can never go wrong with the crab fritter or any preparation of lamb offered. And the cheese cart is ALWAYS ridiculous for the frontage-ophiles!
Thank you for an absolutely perfect Christmas Eve dinner, Bacchanalia!
Flawless as usual. Accommodating to our requests for menu alterations due to special diet
Always a wonderful dining experience. Impeccable service, food, and ambience.
Bacchanalia is without question the best of the best in Atlanta. Every time I dine at Bacchanalia, I ask myself one question "Why don't I eat here more often"!
Keeps having a high standard. Food, ambiance and service are high quality.
Prices are getting too expensive.
Great service and a wonderful meal. Special dinner night!
Amazing dining experience! Try the caviar + popcorn, and the spectacular lamb cleverly paired with a fruity Pinot noir. Spend the extra $10 for selection of cheeses and get your choice of five from their cart of 12. Service is great and they were very accommodating to our dietary restrictions.
This is absolutely one of the best restaurants we've been to. The taste is unique, but all dishes were absolutely delicious. This is quality food. We went there for our tenth anniversary, and we were completely blown away by the restaurant.
Bacchanalia always delivers! It has been around forever and helped jumpstart the Atlanta foodie scene. Though it has many competitors, Bacchanalia still takes its role as elder stateswoman seriously. Always on our list and we will keep coming back!!!
