    I think we've eaten at Bacchus more than any restaurant in the city. We love to sit at the bar and people watch, we order the muffuletta and the grilled cheese and split them (best of both worlds) and we always have great service and John was no exception. Save room for truffles!

    While we live a couple hours away it's not a place we can come to often but if we were closer this place would be a staple! The food is so good! Our first waiter Paul was absolutely wonderful. It's not very often you meet a waiter and you love them right from the start. Very good energy and will request him if possible in the future. They did have to switch our waiter partially the way through and our 2nd one was so wonderful too. I'm so sorry I forget her name but we had a great conversation about seasons and not being from Florida. I would recommend this place to anyone. We had such a wonderful experience!

    Valet parking was inexpensive. Very busy evening. I rated noise level lower than we experienced overall. Large table of ten or more ladies were very noisy as their friends arrived one by one. Lots of outdoor tables and the area is bustling with people. Food- we had the bacchus grilled cheese and it was inexpensive and delicious! I had the tuna plate as an app and found it to be bland unseasoned. I prefer typical seared, seasoned and wasabi. Only neg comment! Benjamin was our server and even with a table of ten ladies he constantly checked I. He also gave great suggestions and descriptions of menu items!

    My first time to St. Pete and Bacchus was suggested to us as a “wonderful dining experience”. We were so impressed by the staff, food and atmosphere that we booked again the following night. If we didn’t have to return home, we would most likely make it a trifecta. 6 stars. Glenn and Aria

    Looking for a smaller, intimate venue for dinner and this hit the target. Asked for a table by the wall and it was reserved for us. Ricky our server was cordial and attentive. We ordered a glass of wine to start, and he pointed out the monthly special: an Austrian Gruner Veltliner. We never see that offered so it was a peasant surprise. My wife ordered a beet entree and I went with the tuna carpaccio; Both were terrific. We had a goat cheese plate for dessert accompanied by white and tawny ports. the wine selection was good and priced fairly...not always the case in wine bars.

    We like the whole idea of the restaurant and have enjoyed previous evenings. To be specific: for 4 people sitting at a small round table, it is awkward to select food from a square platter with a large handle. May be a carousel would have worked better. The chicauterie had strawberries that had a "choking" taste ,which ruined the evening for one of my guests. The house chardonnay tasted awful. We will be back and look forward to a future evening.
