We went to celebrate my girlfriend’s birthday. The wait staff were very attentive and knowledgeable about the variety of wines. Our food was outstanding. Couldn’t have picked a better restaurant foe her celebration.

Bacchus never disappoints. It is one of my favorite places for fine dining in Milwaukee. It seems like it could be stuffy- but the character of staff and their friendly service are anything but.

Most dinners are dressed up or fashionable- this includes jeans.

The menu has great options- and always something interesting/creative to explore. Dishes are superb with great presentation. Plus- possibly one of the best old fashions in Milwaukee; if that's your thing. Extensive wine and cocktail list. It is generally spendy- but for the ambiance, food etc. it is what one would expect.

Great place for foodies, find dining, dates and special occasions.

They don't really advertise being a steak house- but be sure not to overlook them as an option- they never disappoint!

Excellent experience with the Chef's Tasting Menu paired with wine. Attention to detail was outstanding and the entire experience was elegant. Wines selected were so perfect, the nearly outshone the food.

The food, ambience and service is the best in Milwaukee. Be prepared to pay for it though. We go once per year for a special occasion and are never disappointed! I highly recommend this restaurant for that special occasion.

I came here with my significant other to celebrate Valentine's Day. We had full intentions of doing the 5-course tasting with wine pairings prior to arriving. The food did not disappoint and the pairings were perfect! Overall, a good value given the quality and creativeness of each dish.
