We are very fortunate to have dined at top restaurants in Europe and other countries so trying one of Atlantas most acclaimed restaurants was something we looked forward to. The overall experience was very good and the food was of a high standard but some little details let this restaurant down, and at this level it is the little things... More

Went here with some friends and we had a great night. The amuse was a pumpkin soup which was okay but not spectacular. Had some oysters as appetizers, they were fine. We ordered the tartare, crab fritter and fettuccine, which were al good. As a main we had the lamb, which was excellent. The wild meat and pork was good... More

Bacchanalia has been at the top of Atlanta's restaurant list for years, so we were excited to be dining there. My husband and I enjoy marvelous food so greatly anticipated this experience. The ambience is created by very low lighting. So low that several other diners had their cell phones out to read the menu. As other reviewers have noted,... More

What a wonderful elegant dining experience I had at Bacchanalia for my birthday, last night! The prix-fixe courses were all perfectly prepared, but the constant stream of delicious and interesting amuse bouches and palate cleansers was what really made the meal special - it was the eating orgy that the restaurant's name suggests. I'm glad I wore a loose dress... More

My family ate at Bacchanalia for my son and daughter-in-laws birthdays. The meal was great. It is a fixed price 4 course dinner - appetizer, main course, cheese course and dessert. All the courses were wonderful. The portions while not huge were definitely sufficient. We all walked away comfortably full. The food was a mix of normal and unique preparations.... More

I have have eaten here many times over the years. The ambiance is nice. Every time I am there during the week it is a lot if birthdays and business dinners. The food is prepared with the best ingredients and is perfectly executed. The pairings of ingredients on menu items is unique. Don't eat here if you like tiny portions... More

We began with two types of caviar. The first was Osetra and the second was called UGA Siberian caviar. The first was farmed in NC and the latter was from GA. They were both delicious. What made the GA variety interesting is that it was sustainable because the sturgeon were not killed after harvesting the eggs. This was being pioneered... More

We went here for my birthday. It was INSANELY expensive but it was the kind of dining you do to for a special occasion or a date you really want to impress. It's super fine dining and really tasty. Top tier dining.

The overall presentation and service was great. Certainly a 5 In this category. The foods was well prepared with smallish portions. It was plated nicely, but in the end did not blow us away as expected from one of the best restaurants in Atlanta. Worth a visit once.

Thank Edwellons
