Some nights are great some not so .... We have been there before. There is no question that the ambiance is fantastic.
This time, while service was very good, all else didn't quite make it. Forgot our order so we waited very very long - stuff happens. Value is ok.

This is a really nice space with great ambiance. The food was well prepared and the service was spot on. Bacchus is however not designed for parties of more than four people at any seating. We had six people in our party and while we were able to combine tables together, it was awkward. So if you are a couple or a group of three/four this is the right place for you in Brooklyn.

Our waiter was very good. He was super busy but took the time to offer us tastes of wine before we selected our bottles . We sat outdoors and it was quite pleasant. Everyone enjoyed their meals. We had been in Manhattan for a few days and we all agreed the food was just as good if not better.

10/10 experience, food incredible - bit gutted they didn’t have the lobster ravioli but our lovely waiter offered an spinach alternative that ended up being the star dish of the night. Staff is just so sweet and nice, great wine recommendations too. Will come back for sure

Burrata and creamed spinach were outstanding. Ribeye steak was very good, the sides were excellent (sauteed mushrooms and roasted potatoes). Very friendly staff. Love the courtyard and lighting! Staff accomodated our request for a 4-top even thought there was only 2 of us. A 2-top would have been too small so our experience was made much better by a larger table.

We needed to accommodate a large group so we made reservations. Food was great and the server was doing the best she could and was very upbeat and pleasant. That being said it was a very leisurely dinner because maybe they are short staffed like everyone else. Worked out for us!

We loved everything about this place. We were in Brooklyn for a family event. The service was warm, friendly, and fast. The food was amazing. Delicious and fresh. The salmon was perfectly cooked and the snails were tasty. No complaints.

Delicious as always with exception of bread basket and lack of setups. 3 not-so-fresh rolls. Not quantity or price that was disappointing but quality. Hangar Steak to die for!

Urban backyard setting. Adjacent wedding venue with similar urban backyard setting. You were forced to attend the wedding via the band and attending announcements. . Service was decent. Ribeye, French Onion Soup were excellent. Escargot was decent. The burger was disappointing in that it fell apart and the cheese was not melted Basically just an urban cram it all in space with ok food

I ordered the steak medium rare but it was so tough and a lot of fibrous if it makes sense. I don’t know if I would order that again. My date ordered the veggie pasta which was however delicious.

Nice ambiance, but the entres were overpriced for being so subpar, particularly the lobster pasta.
Restaurant seemed understaffed so not enough attention was given to our table and needs. French onion soup and créme brûlée we’re yummy though!

Not what it was unfortunately. Bread is $4 and it’s worse than the bread you are served on US airlines. Food came out after sitting on the plate clearly.

I love this place. If you want a quick meal, this isn’t for you. The wait staff tends to leave you alone and it takes a minute to get food but that just leaves more time to enjoy your friends and your meal. The wine is very reasonably priced for New York and the food is fantastic. They used to have a lamb special, I’m still holding out hope they’ll bring it back. This place is vastly under appreciated.

The dining experience was overall very good. The only compliant I have is it's menu online on it's website was not the same menu they had at the restaurant. If they were going to have that discrepancy, it should at the very least me noted on it's website that the menu is not up to date.

Staff was helpful and attentive. The food was well prepared: perfectly grilled octopus, parpadelle al dente, perhaps a little skimpy on the lobster...Delicious fondant, Ttin lacking in caramel. The hanger steak was cooked to my specs.
The menu is typical bistro, could be be more imaginative (except the octopus!)
Wine selection was amazing, although pricey, but we got a good bottle.
