Nestled in Vancouver's only Relais and Chateaux property, the Bacchus Restaurant and Lounge compliments the luxurious Wedgewood Hotel & Spa's reputation for excellence.

As you walk into the restaurant, its attention to detail is immediately apparent. You are instantly surrounded by luxury, with richly upholstered furniture, dark wood, and light fixtures personally imported from Venice by founder Eleni Skalbania. These impressive features extend the hotel's brand of elegance. A large canvas depicting Bacchus himself, Greek god of wine and revelry, presides over the room.

Its talented culinary team offers modern French cuisine featuring fresh, West Coast ingredients. A great place to enjoy a truly gourmet, fine dining experience accompanied by live entertainment nightly.

The hostess upon my arrival was courteous, professional and welcoming, an important introduction to any venue including hotels and restaurants. My guest was obviously well known to the personnel. We were served an excellent meal at at table appropriate for a business conversation.
It was a splendid lunch from every perspective.
Hat’s off to Bacchus.

the food is great. the service is very slow. I have never managed to have a coffee after lunch because once the meal has arrived your servers disappear for an hour and it is time for me to go to work

Restaurant very quiet and somewhat lacking in atmosphere. Brunch menu quite limited (at least by UK standards ) excellent friendly service but overall we were disappointed by lack of buzz compared with other Vancouver restaurants we had visited

Service was perfect, food was excellent, love the room. Piano was a bit loud for older folk who can’t manage ambient noise. We moved a few tables away and the problem was solved. Hate to be high maintenance, but after that, the evening was perfect.

We have been big fans of Bacchus for years. It has been our favourite restaurant in Vancouver hands down. But something changed the night of June 6. And not for the better. We went there to celebrate a birthday but the food fell miserably flat—for all of us. The borscht soup was sour and lacked the complex flavour associated with this classic. The risotto was bland and uninspired and the special rib steak was salty and had a mushy texture. Even the toffee pudding lacked a wow factor. We will go back only because this is our first miss at Bacchus. But we were surprised and disappointed. Someone needs to pay closer attention to what’s going on here as this is very uncharacteristic of what is normally an excellent restaurant.

Parking was easy even though right downtown. Taken care of by bellman who was very nice and a gentleman. We sat in the main dining area overlooking the bar dining area from an elevated position and to the street outside. Old hotel wood and décor ambiance was warm, upscale and quiet. Our server James was fantastic, friendly and supportive. Our meals were delicious, portioned correctly and the wine also was excellent. We did not stay at the hotel but would love to stay there on a future trip if the dining experience and service experience we had were to translate to the whole hotel experience. No real doubt that it would.

Simply beautiful room, adequate service but very slow. Had the salmon and crab cake appetizer for $18 and what surprised to find that was only one thin cake, although it was beautifully presented and tasted pretty good. However, for a main I had the absolutely most boring and tasteless cobb salad I've ever encountered and I've had a lot of cobb salads. Very disappointed. Paying for the location and decor, not the food.

Old world elegance and charm.
This is a restaurant that hearkens back to old world dark woods and heavy drapery. The staff presents an air of formality. The food was spectacular with great portion sizes - by that I mean they are something that a normal person could eat without feeling absolutely stuffed.
We started with an amazing crab with yellow beet borscht appetizer. Superbly prepared and presented. The fresh halibut was expertly prepared. The tenderloin with short rib came with very interesting layered potato side (kind of like scalloped potatoes) perfectly cooked. Super tasty sauce on the short rib. Our desserts (sorbet) we likewise nicely portioned scoops (3) and very well made.
The live piano music in the background is a very nice romantic touch for the evening.

Excellent. And they were able to accomodate one person's severe lactose intolerance without batting an eye. Be aware that it can be slow - 2.5 hours without dessert for us - but the food was all spectacular. It's pricey, but in keeping with what you get. Will be back.
