    Our server, Salem was outstanding. The menu is interesting. It is a great place to graze or have one of the few entrées on the menu for supper. We got the French onion soup and escargot, both outstanding. My grilled cheese and my partner’s Nicoise dinner salad were also super. The ambiance is more “market” like rather than high end, so casual wear is fine. I would like to see a few tables and chairs both inside and out at table height rather than high top. We did not get wine or dessert, but each had one non-alcohol beer. Our bill prior to the gratuity and tax was about $75, so not for folks looking for an inexpensive meal. We will definitely return.

    We had a delightful meal and sat outside. My only complaint is that the service was excellent but the kitchen was totally overwhelmed. It took way longer than I expected to get food. But when we did everything was delicious!

    Booked Saturday before Mother's Day so restaurant was packed. Table was ready and set up nicely. Restaurant was extremely smoky from the kitchen to the point of burning your eyes. All the appetizers we tried were good to great! Our dinner was extremely slow in coming. Would not be in a hurry to go back with the smoke issue and very slow service.

    My family has had the opportunity to spend a good deal of time in France. Having a celebratory family lunch took us back there in the best way. The food truly reminds me of afternoons in the Burgundy countryside. The service was friendly and attentive. We can be a gregarious bunch but the conversational hum provided enough background noise to camouflage our loud voices. Definitely recommend.

    What a fantastic dining experience. Our server seemed experienced and was very professional. This restaurant should be commended for having servers such as this during a time when a lot of places seem to have trouble retaining staff. Food was excellent and the prices were very reasonable considering the level of service. Covered patio was with fans was very enjoyable.

    Okay. So first I don’t really like sitting on high, backless stools because my legs fall asleep and I don’t wear a waist trainer so I want to rest my back. Second l, didn’t see any hard liquor on the menu, just wine; I don’t know wines so I kinda faked the funk and ordered a Kir Royale. Third, it was all excellent from there! When I tell you I think I just had the best French onion soup west of the 4th Arrondisemment, believe me. And the grilled cheese sandwich. I thought I could make a grilled cheese but bish! When I ordered it the waitress told me “excellent choice, people come back for our grilled cheese.” I thought to myself, it’s just grilled cheese and you ain’t even got no pomme frites or even house made chips to go with it, just a vinaigrette salad! C’mon now. How good could it be? Sandwich came out slap yo mama good! Perfection on a baguette or whatever kind of bread they used. I was in Tampa for an industry conference, looking for a French restaurant. Saw this one in St. Pete’s and had never been to St. Pete’s as many times as I’ve been to Tampa. How’s that happen? Anyway, now that I found this joint, St. Pete’s is the initial jumping off point and Tampa is the after thought. Great food, even better service from Terry.

    For a wine bar I would have preferred there was more variety of wine by the glass. There was one Merlot and one Pinot Grigio to choose from. We had a great server, the weather was ideal for outdoor seating. We enjoyed the food very much. We found the price high but it was a date and we were downtown. We will definitely return. If you have time to just relax and enjoy the experience and the night is about the company not the cuisine I would highly recommend it.

    The most unbelievably bad experience I ever had. Took over 45 min to serve us. We finally ordered ... waiter walked off after waiting 30 min for our food. Asked owner to help. Still waited another 30 min. Finally they "apologized" about a busy table that took up their night and bought us BREAD and butter to apologize. We were forced to leave and find food as it was 9:50 by the time we gave up. The rudest bunch of people I've ever experienced and we were being patient and kind. Unreal!

    From beginning to end our experience was lovely! The man at the front desk was so accommodating when we asked for a small table near a window. Our waiter Devon was personable and helped us pick both wine & food. Everything was delicious & reasonably priced. The evening was leisure, never felt rushed. Would highly recommend to others.

    The words 'unexpectedly excellent surprise' are, well, an understatement. What a terrifically pleasant and overall superb dining experience--one that is HIGHLY recommended! We have tried to 'pop into' Bacchus a few times and it's always packed. So I snagged an 830p Friday bar table--finally! After reading the reviews, we had high expectations. And they were uniformly exceeded. And here's why: 1. Terrific service, from the hostess/Asst Manager (thanks, Taylor!) to our attentive-but-not-overly-cloying waiter (Jeff) who knew the menu and made some terrific suggestions. 2. A superb and very value-aligned wine list--our Rose (St. Baillard) was a perfect pairing with food. 3. Diverse and insanely well-executed charcuterie--from the selections to the accompaniments to the plating. 4. Delicious main courses--a totally decadent grilled cheese sandwich (though the term doesn't do it justice) and an equally delicious Salad Nicoise (with a killer dressing). And 5. The opportunity to sit in the bar area and watch the chef and his 2 other teammates--literally--work their butts off plating beautiful food. They have a terrific choreography, and it's clear they really really work to put out a premium offering. (Seriously--they're exhausting to watch, but in a good way!) We left completely satisfied, very thrilled to squeak jussssst under the $100 for 2 (before tip, but with a bottle of wine), and vowing to return (since every single thing on the menu looks and sounds awesome). If you have not been to Bacchus, go. Soon. And often! (You will want to after your first visit!)

    I didn't give it all five stars for one reason. The first person you meet at the restaurant is the hostess. If I owned the restaurant I would not have her the first person you meet. She was obnoxious. I said I'm not sure if we want to sit outside or inside. She said, your reservation is for outside. Huh? Ok. she preceeded to put us at a table with direct sun in our eyes and when we moved on our own (our server said it was fine) did we get the hairy eyeball from her. Now I don't want to mention our server because I don't want to get him in trouble. But he was great! Recommended things on the menu that were outstanding! We had mimosas, French onion soup, a fabulous sandwich (ham?) and I had a lobster salad I will go back for often... just hope they send the hostess to charm school.

    We really love Bacchus; it is a regular spot for us now, due to the incredible cheeses, flatbreads, wines and dessert. The wine selections are great and made even better by Taylor's recommendations. Derek, is a low-key, terrific waiter with on point suggestions on the entire menu. Excellent; we will be back again and again!
