    I took my husband out for an early dinner to celebrate Father’s Day and the experience was lovely. Bacchus is a sweet, elegant restaurant with an attentive staff and a relaxed atmosphere. We ate in the garden under a gorgeous honeysuckle tree. The wine was excellent the food delicious, beautifully prepared and quite reasonable. We will definitely return.

    Beware of your table category reservation!!! We made a reservation for an outdoor table on OpenTable. When we called the restaurant to confirm just 15min before walking over, we were told there was no outdoor seating and they do not honor the category of reservation made on OpenTable and that it is first come first serve. They were exceptionally rude and made us feel so unwelcome that we dined elsewhere.

    Great backyard seating on a summer night. Food was delicious. My partner and I ordered wine + the fresh bread, beets, escargot, duck, sea bass, and peach tart for dessert. We were pleased with every dish.

    The backyard garden is very cute and they have a nice selection of wine. I had the sea bass and it was bland and overpriced. My companion had the French onion soup and said it was fine.

    Delicious meal! Lovely setting in the back garden off the street – – when the twinkly lights came on it was delightful! Starters highlight was the house salad – – highly recommended – – and the oysters on the half shell were also great with a perfectly seasoned vinaigrette. The salmon with lentils and broccoli Rabe was well, if simply, prepared, with the salmon moist enough to be delicious but cooked enough to be done – – at least to my standards! My dining partner had the sea bass— flavorful presentation but the portion was decidedly on the small side. Desserts included crème brûlée with a deliciously creamy texture and a tasty, but unexceptional tarte tatin. Service was as little uneven but the busy staff’s positive attitude more than made up for it. We’ll be back!

    The hosts and servers, were so amiable and engaging! Spoke to us in French as we entered, actively engaged with our group the entire night, and was extremely hospitable. Food was amazing, the table went silent as soon as we got the food… so you know that means the chef did their job well. Will def love to come here for brunch and experience that menu!

    We ordered the oysters - small and very sweet and special pepercorn half chicken with asparagus and a potato/squash puree. The chicken was tender, cooked in a wonderful peppercorn sauce. Our tarte tatin was absolute perfection and the service was attentive and warm. I thought charging for bread was a bit odd though.

    Bacchus is an amazing restaurant with delicious French food. I took my sister there for her birthday and she loved it. My only negative comment is that they are short staffed ( I am sure it has to do with the pandemic), so it took a while to be seated despite having a reservation and it took a while for a waiter to take our order and of course for the food to arrive. The $38 brunch is fabulous! We spent more because we ordered several appetizers. Will be returning for dinner in a few weeks.

    On a little weekend away, first time diners. Loved the neighborhood vibe, and the food was outstanding!!! OMG… get the ravioli starter. Only 3 stars bc after we got starters , wine, then mains, No one stopped by our table. No checking on our food or wine. No water refills So weird. 30 minutes after we were done - no food, no wine left. I finally enticed a server over. She had been looking at us, but didn’t stop/ not our original server. She asked if we were waiting on dessert 😂 She took our order, we finished again and it took 20 more minutes to get the check. Flagged down a different server. SO disappointed- but the people as absent as they were were lovely and the food was a fabulous. But if the area will give another shot.
