We made an Open Table reservation for Senday brunch. Friendly service. Great meal: Wonderful Authentic French Onion Soup, Salmon and Goat Cheese Sandwich with Roasted Potatoes, Red Wine Lamb Stew with a generous serving of delicious toasted, crusty bread from a confident chef who knew we would want to soak up every drop of gravy. First visit. We'll definitely return.

Our second time at Bacchus in three days, and we wish we had started coming long ago. A real French bistro with food well above the norm. Very friendly and attentive service, and very fine value. As the name might hint, the wine list is well chosen and represents very good value as well.

It's been over a year since we have been back to Brooklyn but wanted to stop in because on our last visit, this restaurant stood out. Wine list is impressive and not overpriced. Food was delicious and compared to Manhattan prices, what a find. Well worth the trip. Working on more reasons to travel to this restaurant. Walking distance to Barclays and easy walk from the A train.

I have eaten here 4 times within a 3 year span. The ambiance is always great (outdoor seating is really nice) & love the wine list (the wines also taste good too). Food during all those 4 times was disappointing. I have eaten food in paris, and it was not even close to it. Service is good.

I mostly just come here for the ambiance and wine.

This Bacchus in Milwaukee is one of the best. Unfortunately open table placed our reservation in Brooklyn NY. Bacchus in Milwaukee was extremely cordial and accepted us with open arms. Open table has to rectify this situation..

Everything was great but noise level. Definitely not a date spot on Saturday night. We were unable to have a conversation because of loud music and people trying to talk over it.

But food, service and decor are very very good.

Great experience overall! It was candlelit and quiet. Large selection of French wines. Delicious homemade bread. Hanger Steak with crispy potatoes and sauteed mushrooms was delicious!

Lamb and salmon were great! Food was fresh. Bread could've been warmer, but it was complimentary. Ambiance was nice.

French restaurant in Brooklyn. We had the fixed price $50 menu on Christmas Day. There was a good choice of food for each of the three courses - and no turkey in sight !! We had the lamb osso buco, filet steak and roast duck as main courses. Everything was excellent. Service was very good -- attentive, but not overbearing. Although the initial appetizer of lobster bisque and first course were served very quickly, there was a good gap between the main and dessert courses. Overall, the meal was very good. Certainly worth a return visit for the a la carte menu.

Great food. I had the Mahi Mahi which was tasty, and my boyfriend had amazing steak with peppercorn sauce. The host was very chatty and friendly.

I came here for brunch on a Sunday morning. When I got there, it was still fairly empty. The problem was that they decided to sit us all the way in the back and occasionally remembered us. Service was a bit slow for us, but to be fair, I guess we did order the more labor intensive items from the menu. Their porcini ragu would be good, but the truffle mushroom sauce is too salty. The red wine lamb stew strangely went the other direction and was on the bland side. What's worse is the waitress brought us the dish with burnt toast. Was she just not paying attention or did she think we'd be ok with that? Same goes for the chefs who burned the toast in the first place. French onion soup was pretty good though.

Food was subpar. Service was inattentive.

When we first came in, it didn’t take too long for the waiter to address us and take our order. Unfortunately, that was the last we saw of him.

There was a bartender/waitress who would sometimes walk around but would try to avoid eye contact. It took A WHiLE to get the check and I’m pretty sure she ignored a few of my “excuse me” because the place was small, half empty and my voice is fairly audible.

We had also told the earlier waiter to put in mussels in the order to go, when we get our bill. Of course this was either dismissed or forgotten.

Disappointing dinner. Wouldn’t recommend and doubt it will be around for much longer.
