The escargot and mussels were very good. Good ambience. The service can be a tad slow, but to be fair, the restaurant was packed on this Saturday night.

We had a great time here. It was even better that our family name is Bacchus. The food was great, our kids were comfortable and the service was really good too.

The backyard is so cute and perfect for brunch. We got an amazing bottle of wine that was suggested to us by one of the staff or maybe the owner. The service was exceptional. We didn’t have to wait for anything! The food is really good here as well. I would deff recommend and will be coming back!

The food was delicious but the service was lackadaisical. We arrived at 7:30 and got our mains around 9pm and had to ask the waiter several times about every course. The bread basket at $4 was disappointing in quantity and quality, but the rest of the food, when it arrived was really tasty and hot!

The service was very slow and a bit disorganized.
Seemed that there were not enough experienced staff to handle the number of tables.
However, they were all very nice and did their best.

My spouse of thirty plus years and I found ourselves with an impromptu dinner occasion in an unfamiliar city. The Open Table app directed us to Bacchus a short walk from our hotel. The dining experience was delightful. Highlighted by a charming courtyard and a French Mediterranean “vibe”.

Beautiful patio, charmingly lit in the evening. Excellent, warm and professional service, with just the right amount of humor. The food was excellent -- much better than the standard "French" fare offered at other so-called "bistros" in NYC. And they didn't rush us out the door, giving us plenty of time to enjoy the experience. Highly recommended.

Good selection of tasty French food, nicely prepared and presented in, where we ate, a pleasant outdoor-ish area. Very amiable waitstaff. We were the first ones there at their 5pm opening, but soon a good-sized crowd had developed. Being on diets, we passed on bread basket and dessert, which probably would have been as wonderful as everything else!

The appetizers were delicious. The entrees were incredibly lacking. The desserts were average. Have been here twice now and both times the meat entrees were not seasoned well enough and not tender.

Bacchus has reopened after a hiatus and it is better than ever. Outstanding food, wine and service and a beautiful back yard. This place has been a favorite for many years and will continue to be one for many more, I’m sure. So glad to welcome them back.

Besides the good food, wine, and service, the backyard has a beautiful atmosphere. And, this place is very well set up for safety during the pandemic... everything is nicely spread apart and I wasn't at all worried about being too close to other customers or the staff.

Always a great experience. The absolute best parts of dining at Bacchus is the food and ambiance, especially the garden. The service is usually very friendly. A go-to for french dining if you're in the downtown area of Brooklyn.
