    My son and I were seated at a two top in the back of the restaurant on a very busy night. While the space is small and rather tight, the ambiance was lively and friendly, with an upscale yet casual clientele. We were waited on immediately, and drinks and food came out quickly. I had the tuna carpaccio, which was delicious, and my son had foie gras, which was amazing. Both dishes were elevated enough to feel special. Their wine list is extensive with many choices by the glass, and they have beer along with a full bar.

    The food is wonderful. Thoughtful preparations that you won’t find elsewhere. We arrived at 4pm for a 5pm reservation. We wanted to just have a glass of wine while waiting on our table. We were told “with authority” that we would need to come back at 5pm. We complied even though there were some seats open. This was a bit troublesome so we went down to Cassis and had drinks while waiting. Another thing is don’t sit outside if it is chilly, they have no outdoor heaters but they do offer blankets but you must ask for one early. They offered us one but by that time we were getting our check.Despite our experience we will be back because the food is just so good. Go at 3-5pm for great deals on thoughtfully offered wines which are very good and reasonable. This was our fourth visit and the first time we had any criticisms.

    We enjoyed a gorgeous chef's-choice prepared charcuterie board for our table of 8. They had no problem serving our own cake and dressed each plate beautifully with whipped cream and fruit to serve. Very attentive service made the birthday celebration extra special. Christophe, Paul and the entire staff were so welcoming.

    Great spot with great food and wine. Just keep in mind that the high tops are considered ‘inside’ but the door is kept open to preserve wines. On a chilly night this is not ideal for those of us who hate cold and planned on ‘indoor’ seating. Luckily it doesn’t happen too often since this is Florida. Ya just gotta accept that the wine is more important than the people when you go to a good wine bar 💁🏼‍♀️

    Bacchus provided a nice intimate experience for me and my partner on New Year's Eve; there was a protest outside and they were even accommodating enough to move us inside despite our outside reservation. The service was very attentive and the food was excellent and came out quickly. Of course, the selection of wines was extravagant and the one we selected was great. Everything was moderately priced as well. Definitely would return and recommend it to others as well!
