    Go for the charcuterie! It will not disappoint. The house wine isn't bad for happy hour. We tried the monthly featured wine and bought a bottle. You can purchase charcuterie items from the deli to take home (duck prosciutto). The chocolates are locally made and very nice. I love beets but they were mistreated and placed with mint so I'm not a fan. The American Waygu was perfect! Go for the charcuterie!

    We ate lunch here to celebrate a friend’s birthday. We had terrific service. The food was delicious! I could see this restaurant being very loud at night or when crowded. It’s not very big. It’s beautifully decorated. Great wine list.

    This is my new favorite place for Happy Hour in Downtown St. Pete. They have great Happy Hour Wines including a dry rosé (which is almost unheard of on a HH list!). Their happy hour tapas are also great. My favorite is the small charcuterie tray. Service is excellent. I will definitely be back!

    1. Smoke from the kitchen causing great discomfort and irrational of eyes & nose. 2. Chairs are rickety and very uncomfortable (indoor seating) 3. The bread pieces are too hard and sharp and cut into my tongue - really a cut in the tongue 4. Food was ok not great The only good part was the waitress who was kind and took care of us. Couldnt wait to get out due to the smoke causing teary eyes.

    Had such a great time here! My colleague recommended this spot while I was here for work and I’m glad I was able to check it out! Super cute spot, love the wine wall! I don’t know much about wine, so it was nice to have the manager help us pick a bottle. I wish I took a picture because it was delicious! My friend and I shared the cesar salad, a flatbread, and the ahi tuna. Everything was so good! I really loved the ahi tuna, it was so fresh and flavorful! You can tell how attentive they are with their dishes. Definitely recommend this spot for date night, girls night, or just a good time!

    We came for happy hour and it is a great way to try Bacchus... their house wines were especially good and only $4.50 a glass. The happy hour tapas and small charcuterie board were all delicious and waitress Madison was extremely pleasant.

    Went on a Thursday night in October @ 9pm - place was empty inside & a few tables taken outside, server told us to sit wherever so we did! It was a birthday for my best friend so I requested champagne to be waiting on the table & it was - perfectly chilled & aerated ! Honestly, the night we had here was a testament to how this place is so great. Being someone who works in the industry I know how frustrating it can be when you’re slow & just want to go home cause you’re not making money, but instead our server & everyone else we interacted with went above and beyond to make sure we had the best experience. They even gave us complementary dessert wine to end on - 10/10 would recommend - will be back for sure

    It was the week of Hurricane Ian—we had just gotten power back and thought “we need to celebrate!” It was the perfect spot! We got the tuna carpaccio as an appetizer—SO good! My husband ordered the steak and I got a fabulous salad. My husband gave me about a fork tine’s worth of steak to try, and it was deLISH. For dessert, he had the bananas foster cheesecake: “superb.” I had a glass of port because hello, I make my calories count. One last thing: Our server was FANTASTIC. I’d go back just for her.

    For a place called Bacchus Wine Bistro the wine list is very nice albeit not super extensive. We really like the wine we chose. Menu has nice options and everything we tried was very tasty. We shared sardines on toasted baguette, Beet (not beef) carpaccio, and a flatbread. Portion sizes were perfect and shareable. We left feeling very satisfied. Service was very friendly at an average pace. We had reservations and were seated right away at the bar, which is not a cocktail bar but a bar that runs along the windows looking out to the street so the people watching was fun. Overall ambiance and decor was very nice. Rustic, french, trendy, if that's a thing. Fairly lively place. Only downside was that it is also fairly noisy. Sitting right next to my husband at our bar seats we often had to lean in to hear each other and repeat ourselves. For me it Like, not Love, but Like enough that I will go back and maybe try to get a reservation at a table outside when the weather is nice.

    Excellent Hummus with rosemary. Cheese pizza very tasty. Everything was super fresh tasting and not too salty. The house red wine was complex and slightly dry (from California) and was on happy hour pricing. Our server was fun and attentive and yet was not too attentive. I love this place for date nights with my lovely wife. A bit noisy but you could still have a nice conversation. Highly recommended!
