Bacchus Bar and Bistro
LOUD, terrible service, food was nothing special and overpriced. I went here years ago and enjoyed the atmosphere, wine and food. Last night was terrible. Both of us (met a friend for a relaxing evening of catching up) said we would never come back.The noise was deafening; we felt rushed; the waiter seemed “put out” when we asked for a taste of a wine we were considering; the portion size of food was minuscule and the quality, very disappointing.
Absolutely fabulous evening.. the live music with Alex Drizos was the perfect compliment to the amazing food and wine
What a wonderful experience! Delicious happy hour food; bargain prices; delicious wine choices; superior service, even at at a Friday Happy Hour! I love this place!!
I have not been here before and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The live music was a great added touch and great food and customer service.
Perfect food and ambiance
Foot was good but the selection was very limited. We relied on the website information only to discover that it was at least a year out of date according to the service staff. Impressive wine list relative to the food options. Live music was very nice - appreciated it even more as it partly countered an extremely noisy bar crowd.
Great time with friends.. though large group arrive that was loud and made it difficult to enjoy the music
Bacchus is amazing! The food and service are excellent. Everything was delicious and thoughtfully prepared. We enjoyed a nice bottle of sparkling wine that we had never tried before. The talented musician added to the night for sure. We will definitely be coming back again . . . Soon!
Live band on Saturdays. Good wine, good snacking foods, good service. We will be back
This was the second time we've eaten here, I'm always suprised there is not more people there. The food is outstanding, especially the salads, love the selection of wines by the glass.
What a great find... for a great impromptu night out! Entertainment - Kenny Hale ~ just plain fun & food, service and wine fabulous!
Was planning on eating at the bar but the host (blondie) acted like it was inconvenient I was a party of 1. Sat at the bar and had all intentions of sticking around for the music but didn’t feel welcomed at all. Got the feeling if you aren’t a local / with a others, you aren’t welcomed there. Ended up leaving for a better atmosphere. Wish I had a better experience.
Would highly recommend
We had a nice time sitting at the bar the singer was fantastic.
First time here for dinner. This is a great neighborhood find. Nice wine list. Halibut was great, great pairing of sauce and vegetables made it stand out from standard fare.
The food was of exceptional quality, and the entertainment of Joey Sykes guitar and vocal expertise was rewarding
Went there with the family and all of us enjoyed the wine and food! Would definitely go again!
Great ambiance, super friendly staff and a really nice selection of wine.
Amazing food but service was a little slow. The live music was wonderful so we didn’t t mind the wait.
Wonderful food, wine, and service. Bacchus is a true hidden gem.
The food way yummy! Even better than the reviews. And we really enjoyed the live music. It's nice to have a neighborhood hangout.
Great service and adult beverage selection. Some of the best lamb chops in town
Made an 8:30pm reservation via Open Table on Monday and when we arrived, we were told that they were closing in thirty minutes...yikes!!!
We ordered Shady Canyon plate and it’s wonderful. Highly recommended
Delicious food and great wine selection (obviously), with friendly, attentive staff. Look forward to the next meal and wine time
Great live music and lite food paired well with wines
Loved our evening there. Food was exquisitely prepared. Great wines, wonderful live Spanish guitarist and cozy romantic atmosphere.
Very disappointed, besides marketing themselves as "A place you want to bring family and friends" they neglect to tell you that it is a 21 and older location. So after making dinner reservations for my wife's birthday, our part (in 3 cars) drove out 20 minutes only to get turned away at the door. It would be great if either in the description or reservation process it warned people of the requirements to get into the restaurant. I understand 21 and over requirements for sitting at the bar, but not in the dining area.
Enjoyed relaxed vibe. Service lacking — more staff needed. Would be great if you have time; otherwise, inefficiencies can be frustrating.
Restaurant was a very pleasant surprise. Looks can be deceiving. We did not expect the type of great food, presentation and service from such a small shppping center place. Highly recommended.
Really disappointing: much more a drinking venue than a place for food. Limited not very interesting "bar" menu.
Live jazz but the room is very hard which makes the music very loud. Could not hear myself think.
The regulars obviously like what it has to offer and looked planted in place. It is not for me!
3 piece band was loud for a small place. Food was good with huge wine selection and top grade service.
Good food and great wine selection. Way too loud for conversation.
Invited my friends and We went here for wine, food and jazz music. We got all that plus a lovely service. Will come back here again and recommend to other friends.
Service is always outstanding! Wine selection is fantastic. Such a fun place to go with my husband or bunch of friends.
My wife and I had been wanted to try it and we were not disappointed. The wine options are outstanding. No huge marketed names but good boutique wines with plenty of flavor. They also have a wine market so you can taste, buy and take home. The bartender asked what I was looking for in a wine, I said bold and chewy red with oak and she asked if there was a price range i was confortable. I told her and she came with an excellent choice that was $10 under by amount, my experience is that they usually find something that is $10 over your ""comfortable amount". The plates are small so good for sharing and ordering a variety. We had spicy prawns (excellent!!) and they were not afraid of spicy, so if you can't stand much spicy, not for you. The main entrée was the Short Ribs over a cauliflower puree, wow, this nice and tender meat was a perfect compliment to the nice chewy, oaky cab. oh, and we finished off with a wonderful carrot cake.... We don't do dessert but we did this time and ate the whole thing.... we'll be back!!!
Food is consistently good altough limited in choices. I love the wine collection and the live music.
Met there for Valentines day and it was perfect for light menu and great wine.
Live band and fantastic service.
The music was great. The wine list is great. The offer interesting wine flights. The food was ok. We had the lobster fondue, the olive bread flatbread and the Brussels sprouts. The staff is very friendly, but very very slow. We sat for quite a while before our drinks were delivered. We waited quite awhile for food and even longer for the check. I guess it's nice not to have someone pushing you to eat or drink more but if we had wanted more we would have had pursued getting it. If I was going back I would only go for music and wine.
New owners and there are a few changes
- food menu more limited
- Open Table reservation no longer available
- reservations for parties of 6 or more only
( smaller parties can call 30 minutes ahead to hold a table, making it hard to plan ahead IMO)
The wine selection is good, we love the live music, the food offerings are ok ( not a restaurant though so come prepared ). This had been our goto place for an entertaining night out, and we will continue to return on occasion, but we may explore some of the other wine bars out there ( and there are plenty of them ).
