We enjoyed a quiet dinner that was delicious and unique and will definitely return to Bacchus. Our party of six, selected 5 different entrees that did not fail us. We enjoyed the chicken, salmon, steak, pasta and seafood offerings to our delight. The beet salad and the wedge salad were exceptional. The service was top rate and atmosphere very comfortable....

Absolutely charming evening! Our server, Andy, was delightfully adept, supportive, quick on his feet, and extremely skillful and attentive. From my call to reserve a table, speaking with chef owner, Brian, who was warm, friendly and accommodating, to our arrival at the front door, our first dining experience at Bacchus Wine Bar & Restaurant was exceptional. The food was nothing... More

We had a late dinner at Bacchus, arriving within about an hour and a half of their closing time. The service was impeccable, the wine list impressive, and our meals probably some of the best we've ever had. The decor/vibe of this restaurant is sophisticated but not pretentious. And terrific gem within easy walking distance of the Hampton Inn Downtown... More

Not our first trip. Food is always fantastic. Cant wait for another visit on Friday. The main menu is great does change/update seasonally but the specials are always great too. Certainly a great place for special occassion, date night, just dinner or before/after a show. Be sure to add it to your "Must Visit" list. Yummo!

Thank Paula Z
