Great Wine List. Great Service. Our table was ready on time. Although the restaruant was very busy, the Hostess updated us on our table availability several times. The servers and staff were excellent, very attentive. The Bolognese was good. All in all a nice night out.

Most of our meal for four was great. The soupe de pesce had a fishy odor though it tasted fine and our friend suffered no consequences. Being a Saturday night and busy it was very noisy and difficult to have full table conversation. Very typical for most restaurants in the area but disappointing at a high end venue. Wait staff and our server John were great. Lunches are much more ‘sedate’. Highly recommend.

Our service was good. Cocktails were good, though my dirty martini came without olives, odd, so I had to ask for one. Salads were good. We didn’t finish so the server boxed them and then set the box on our space challenged two top. Wine list is good, we had a nice bottle of white. My husband loved his pasta special, my pasta off the menu was bland and pasta was far past al dente. I also felt my mushroom ragu was over dressed. Dessert was the highlight for sure. We were seated in the bar area at a two top that lacked much ambience. Felt like I was eating at the bar.

Overall, felt that the experience was not what a $200 meal should have been. Everything was just good, except the dessert which was great.

The service was very good. Our server and her team were very attentive and accommodating. We ordered from the prixe fixe "Tour of Italy" menu and had to send one of the entrees back as it was just inedible. Our server, though graciously handled the situation and brought another choice. It was supposed to be a cod entree but it looked more like beef stew and tasted like old fish.

Make no mistake, Bacco is expensive, but unlike other high-end restaurants in metro Detroit, you will actually leave here full. The Tour of Italy option is a good value for a lot of great food. Bacco does not feel like a Bravo, Maggianos, or other cookie cutter, chain style, Italian food. The owner and chef actually spends time working in the restaurant, and it shows. Wine is a bit expensive, though. The low end is $12-$15 per glass.

Took my girl here for valentine day. The food was amazing and the service was better. The servers were very attentive and worked extremely well together. The wine selection was fantastic. I had to ask for the bottle so I can shop around for the kind we were served. I’d highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who hasn’t been yet. Thumbs up!

Let your server know if you’re celebrating with a meal. Something special will happen! My companion and I chose from the regional menu, a three-course meal that changes monthly with a different Italian region featured. Though I cannot say I loved the goulash, it was indeed different, and ultimately that’s what I was going for.

We took acouple here to celebrate a birthday. We had a reservation so we were sat instantly. They put us at a table near the bathroom and the kitchen and we politely asked for another table away from a busy spot as one of our guests is pregnant and they obliged. Our waiter was nice and friendly. However, a gentleman in a suit and with white hair kept coming to our table to “check on us”. What we came to realize was that we had overstayed our welcome at our table. This is apparently “fine dining “ but this guy was a manager wanted us to get up from the table. At the one hour and 30 minute mark( be it we got our dishes at the one hour mark), he told us that other diners are waiting for a table and it was time for us to leave. Is this real life? I have been dining at restaurants be fine casual or whatever type of dining for 34 years I have never been this disrespected. This manager needs to learn to respect his patrons or he will lose a lot of business. You never ask paying customers to leave. We told him we were unhappy with his attitude and he told us that other diners are waiting at the bar and want to eat at our table. When we expressed displeasure, he became extremely abrasive and ignored us. Regardless, there was a six top that was left open the entire night and he could not put them there? Absolutely disgusting behavior I would recommend you think hard about going here for dinner if you want to be treated poorly even after spending $150 or more. They should be embarrassed and I’ll never be back.

We get together here with some good friends at least a couple times a year. It is always outstanding. One of my favorite things is their willingness to split a dish into four servings. We usually end up ordering multiple appetizers and two maid dishes and splitting everything. Never disappointed. Great staff, great location, great experience everytime.

We had dinner to celebrate a 40th birthday on Friday night. Made a reservation through open table, which was so easy, and the table was ready for us when we arrived. The dinner was delicious in every regard. Service was the most attentive I think I have ever experienced. I had the Italian salad which was chopped and incredibly delicious – I kept wanting more and more of it. My friend had a salad which was made from shaved brussels sprouts – beautifully presented and he stated it was incredibly delicious and flavorful with unexpected taste surprises that pleased his palate.

I also had the minestrone soup which I remembered from a previous visit was so flavorful and tasty, and it did not disappoint my fond memory with its deliciousness. I ordered the gnocchi as my main course, and they were the most buttery soft tender and flavorful gnocchi I have ever had.

The owner was present and made unobtrusive passes through the dining room every so often to surreptitiously check the tables and make sure that everything was 100% on point. I cannot wait for the next special occasion when we can return. Who am I kidding? I might just have to take myself there for the chopped Italian salad and minestrone soup for lunch one day!
