    I didn’t think I was going to care for cheese board and meats but I loved it I got the beets appetizer and caviar, best I’ve ever had I love this place, Amy was our server she’s from New York and she went to school and took 7yrs of Spanish so that was amazing and she knows exactly what to get for people that have not been there before, she asked us different questions to bring out a customized cheese and meet bored for us. Amy was the best I will definitely come back again.

    Me and my husband went here to celebrate my birthday. My husband added a note about it being my birthday with our reservation. The restaurant seated us at a private outdoor table away from other guests so we could celebrate a the occasion without distraction. They also wrote a very cute and thoughtful birthday note and had it at the table when we arrived. It was so sweet! The ambiance at the outdoor seating was very romantic and reminiscent of dining in Paris. The food was delicious! It’s traditional French fare with an excellent selection of options to create your own charcuterie board, which they crafted so beautifully and served alongside more than enough toasted baguettes to accompany the meats and cheeses. The beef carpaccio was also phenomenal, highly recommended! Our waitress was so knowledgeable about the menu and really made our dining experience that much better. She was very kind and had a great sense of humor. All in all, I highly recommend Bacchus if you are looking for an intimate and unique dining experience and enjoy French cuisine.

    This is a go to for our household. Great service, wine, charcuterie. We shared the sirloin last night (flambé table side) with asparagus qnd fingerling potatoes in duck confit. YUMMERS. There are few negatives with the food and service, the toughest part is that reservations can and do SLIP drastically. Not sure if it’s overbooking due to regular cancellations / no shows OR the walk ins (after pandemic it’s tough for a restaurateur to say no to a walk up customer ). We plan for this by booking EARLY in evening (pre 6PM) or later in (post 9PM). Every server is lovely. The sommelier too.

    Cory, our waitress was excellent. She had waited on us once previously about 3 months ago, yet she recognized us immediately and made us feel very welcome. The wine and food was excellent and Cory’s cadence throughout the meal was perfect which made for a great experience at a great restaurant.

    Bacchus is always a rock solid home run. Went for a light pre-symphony dinner. As always, the window seats are prime viewing...the wine list is amazing and terrific value (the Cremant DeLoire Brut Rose is exceptional)...and the food ridiculously satisfying (It was colder outside, so we opted for the steak au poivre for the first time ever. A wise choice!) Service is always present...responsive...but never hovering (but our one tiny quibble: when guests are done eating--take ALL the food plates away!) And the clientele always makes for excellent people watching (although Bacchus can get a bit loud...just be prepared, but it's a 'good loud'!). We have yet to ever have a bad experience there--it's always wonderfully satisfying! Thanks Bacchus!

    New Year's Eve: early in the evening they had already run out of escargot, and sea bass. Not having sea bass was pretty bad since they only have 2 entree choices. One of their air filters was broken so every one in the restaurant was teary eyed all evening and they had all their fans blowing to help fix the issue, which it didn't, and then the place was freezing. Last test New Year's Eve was a total blast at Bacchus. This year it was a total bummer. The only saving grace was our server.

    Not too many options for dinner, and when we came in one of the options were unavailable making it more difficult to choose from a small menu. Getting there ten minutes late past our reservation we were seated at 840pm when our reservation was at 8pm. Although our server was attentive, I do think from the amount of money spent there was something missing.
