Excellent menu -both wine and food- good variety to choose from…not ridiculously expensive. we only had salads and wine and a small after dinner wine the cherry moscato- A little fizz and not too sweet as I had expected- was excellent!
Would love to go back for the charcuterie boards and other appetizers but we were not that hungry that night.

Overall it was really nice. Got there and we were greeted right away and showed options of places to sit outside and inside. The service was very friendly, they explained the menu option as well as the everyday happy hour (which we didn’t know about but great deals!) They explain the wine without making you feel stupid, got flat bread and small cheese board which was really tasty. Only issue was that the server seem to forget about us after the 2nd glass of wine. We couldn’t find him, so that was a bit annoying and made our occasion 25 mins longer than anticipated. Otherwise the good food and great prices (happy hour) on wine. Would definitely go back!

Bacchus is my favorite place to gather with friends. I love to celebrate anything or just spend quality time. The ambience is lovely, and the staff are always wonderful! The food is delicious as well!

We enjoyed a fabulous evening at Bacchus Wine Bistro. The food was excellent - we had the Duo of Fois Gras followed by the Raclette for two. Both were well prepared and delicious. The wine list was nice - we chose a Gigondas. And the service was outstanding from both our server, Amar, and the General Manager, Cale. Highly recommended if you are looking for a nice evening out with great food and drink. We are looking forward to our next trip to St. Petersburg and Bacchus.

Love Bacchus! Always a great time in one of our favorite St. Pete restaurants. Started with a couple glasses of wine and the amazing French onion soup. It’s made from fresh chicken broth and is actually light. It’s fine delicious snd very filling as we always split it. Next came the tuna carpaccio which was so perfect with a nice presentation and so good! We spilt the shrimp, salmon and sea bass combo with incredible sauce, potatoes and asparagus. No room for dessert. Can’t wait to go back!!

Presentation was good and the food delicious. The cheese portions were large. There were two servers at lunch time and getting food out was very slow. It took over 30 minutes to get a cheese board out. It took equally as long to get two salads out. Started sitting outside and the chairs were HORRIBLE. Uncomfortable and shaky. I moved inside to the same chairs and pinched my arm on the chair where it is falling apart. For two people (4 cheeses and 3 meats on a board) two glasses of wine and two salads it was $200.

We ate outside for happy hour. House wine options were good. They were out of French Onion soup after a busy Labor Day Weekend. Tried the steak and small charcuterie plate, we enjoyed both.

Had the MOST wonderful experience at Bacchus today!
The manager Devin is fantastic, knowledgeable, and truly cares about his staff and restaurant!
Chefs’ carefully created menu was interesting and varied. The star of the show was the smoked tomato gazpacho, but honestly everything was amazing from the Beet Carpaccio, to the quality of cheese/charcuterie, to the house cured vegetables in the planche vegetarienne, and the bread is some of the best I’ve ever had anywhere!
Can not wait to come back another day with my husband or friends! What a great experience! Thank you for everything!

Bacchus Wine Bistro is a great place for a date night! The menu has a wide variety of meats, cheeses, salads, entrees, and wines (of course!). We enjoyed a couple happy hour appetizers, fresh entree salads, and a few glasses of wine. We’ll be back for future date nights and with friends. We sat on the front patio by a large oscillating fan, which allowed us to comfortably enjoy the city’s vibrant energy. Waitstaff were not masked, if that is a concern for you in September 2021.

The food was great and the service good, but I had two problems. One was all the seating was high top with stools you have to climb up on and I don’t like this kind of seating. The second was that no one was wearing a mask and the server was very close. I almost didn’t go inside when I saw there were no masks, but the tables were spaced and it was early so there weren’t many people.

We will return on our next St Pete visit. Sitting outside on a hot FL night with lots of large fans circulating air worked perfectly. We had terrific service and without a doubt the best charcuterie and cheese board anywhere. Our server guided us how many cheeses and meats to select. What we did not expect was the large portion size or we might have ordered one or two less choices. Disney restaurants shame on you. Bacchus had great choices, larger portions and a far more reasonable price and Bacchus really impressed us.

Bacchus is like a home for me. Food and wine never disappoint. Everyone I bring falls in love with the place. Still has hands down the BEST grilled cheese I’ve ever had! And the Steak Au Poivre Flambé is fabulous.

This was the highlight of our stay in St Petersburg! We opted to sit inside because of the weather and it was a little loud at times but that turned out to be a single table.
The food (a board that we customized) was incredibly good. We are wine/cheese /charcuterie lovers and these ingredients were amazing for their flavor and freshness. Excellent, excellent service… great wine list, decadent desserts…
It was just a flawless meal in every way

We live Bacchus. This time we had lunch with a reservation for outside. Our waiter basically forgot us. We ordered a simple lunch and asked if we could have some bread. He told us it was included in all orders. TMy soup came and was excellent. Our main courses came and we had to ask for some utensils and napkins. And repeated our request for some bread. I finished my lunch and my wife takes a little longer. She asked “did we get the bread?” I had not seen the waiter and now was done with my meal. I waited fir my wife to finish and when she was done I waited a few minutes and went inside to ask for a bill. I told the lady at the cash register that our waiter completely forgot us. He saw us at the register and when I sai “you forgot us @ he responded that this was not a fast food restaurant. There were 2 active tables on the sidewalk and we never got our bread.
