Food is always great and the garden seating is socially distanced and very cute.
Food was amazing and service was fast. We were seated immediately and sat outside which was lovely.
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.
The food here never disappoints and the staff and the service are just right. I’ve been eating at this restaurant for some years now and I’ve never left hungry dissatisfied.
Loved everything about it! Service was spectacular and the food was divine.
The food is delicious, the wine is reasonably priced, the back garden is lovely. It’s a great local spot.
A treasure for over a decade, still the loveliest place for a beautiful meal in a lush garden. I never tire of Bacchus. So very thankful they made it through this year.
Wonderful! Beautiful garden and great wine, food and service!
Great dinner! Alvaro is the best
Great menu, good service, and a heavenly patio. Will be a permanent spot in the brunch rotation
Great place l. Beautiful backyard. Authentic French feel. Waiters and waitresses were extremely nice. Nice music and relaxing vibe. Great for date night.
Nice cute place. The brunch menu was not long but it varies often. The food was good - maybe I didnt feel like it was made by a celebrity chef but everything tasetd good. Pleasant neighborhood spot.
Delicious food. Cozy, romantic atmosphere. Good wine selection and friendly staff.
Meat for steak not too good. Taste like not aged.
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.
It was Thanksgiving day, but we didn’t want traditional meal (turkey was on menu by the way:)
My husband preferred pasta with seafood and I had mussels in wine sauce
Two glasses of wine, coffee and chocolate pie were
Great food and great service. An awesome birthday dinner thanks to Bacchus
Really excellent service, very cute backyard, great food! Really enjoyed my time there.
Did a date night with my husband. Was quiet, which we like and our food was excellent. We shared the lamb shank and hangar steak and both were delicious. Great wine by the glass as well.
As always, Bacchus was great! We were there for a birthday celebration.
Amazing as always!!!!!
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.
Took 20 minutes for us to be greeted (after asking twice) as they were very short staffed. We ordered the two-hour bottomless brunch, and although they provided a carafe of mimosas 15 minutes after we ordered, they were extremely slow to offer refills, and we always had to go inside to ask.
Food was good, came very quick, but nothing extraordinary. For reference, we ordered the steak & eggs (asked for medium, got medium rare) and Eggs Royal (saltier than it should be). Home fries and salad were good.
I’d like to note I’d been here one previous time pre-COVID for brunch. We ate inside, around 2-3pm on a Saturday, got the bottomless brunch, and our server was extremely attentive but we were the only patrons in the restaurant. They even continued providing drinks after our 2 hours were up and we had paid out. Ordered the burger and the octopus casserole, the latter being AMAZING. Some of the best grilled octopus I’ve ever had.
Definitely two very different experiences.
2020: outdoor garden; tables very well spaced; everyone wearing masks
Food/Service: always very good here; great neighborhood bistro
Great wine list and good food. Bacchus has a garden back area that's ideal for outdoor seating, and its movable roof was a great help Friday when it rained! Food is consistently good--highly recommend the salmon and the citrus salad.
I used to dine at Bacchus years ago and loved it, especially the braised lamb shank. I was thrilled to find it still on the menu and ordered it. It was exactly as I remembered, rich and tasty. The sides were perfectly prepared and delicious. Bacchus has a backyard and the outside dining was perfectly executed. The area is large and has a roof, so rain shouldn't matter. The tables were well apart from each other. The only drawback I could see is that there seems to be no way to heat the space, at least not yet. I hope they acquire propane heaters or something similar because it would be great place to eat, into the winter. My only complaint was that it seemed quite expensive, though a lovely dinner.
Once again, we had an amazing experience at one of my favorite restaurants. It was actually my first time for brunch, and out in the beautiful garden. Friends from out of town, former Brookylnites, requested it! Absolutely delicious food, amazing lattes, lovely atmosphere and all around the perfect spot for excellent food, service and beautiful safe environment! Love it!
My friends and I had a wonderful time at Bacchus. Food and service were great!
This place has been solid for 20 years. Delicious mussels, pasta, and on and on. Excellent food and welcoming backyard patio. Love this place!
Lovely dinner spot in these COVID times. They have outdoor seating in front of the restaurant, but I’d recommend being seated in the back courtyard; it’s outdoors but decorated with soft lighting and there’s good music (if you’re into lite ‘80s fare). Braised lamb was delicious as was the special (pesto tagliatelle with shrimp). Mussels were okay but you’ll likely want to get more roasted potatoes with them (instead of the focaccia). Great for a romantic dinner or casual meal with family/friend. Tables were also appropriately socially distanced. Only negative was the service was a bit slow, but with the right company you might not notice/care. Enjoy!
Great outdoor courtyard for dining. The pasta with shrimp was wonderful and I enjoyed my lamb shank.
A small menu with only a few dishes. The full online menu was not offered. No QR codes available at tables. overpriced!
Garden is very cute for a date night. Good was great.
We had a pleasant dinner. It was unfortunate that the restaurant was so empty.
The food was well cooked and a nice presentation as well
Great for outdoor dining
Tables distanced properly in a very safe environment
My wife and I came to Bacchus for a date night and we were not disappointed. My wife and I got married at Bacchus so we were really excited to return. Meryl and her team were attentive and provided excellent service. The food was amazing including the Crème Brûlée we had for dessert. The ambiance is perfect for a date night.
What a pleasant surprise! We were staying in a hotel a few blocks away and there weren’t a lot of dining options. The back garden was lovely, the service was good, and the food was delicious! We will definitely return next time we are in the neighborhood
The food was very mediocre. I have had better frozen empanadas. The burger wasn’t very fresh or tasty. The branzino was fine. Nothing spectacular. The accompanying Brussels sprouts were likely microwaved.
