    My mom and I come here every time she’s in town. She always talks about how good it is and how it’s her favorite restaurant in Richmond. The food is always delicious and the service is excellent. Parking is always easy to find on Broad. We’ve also gotten seated without reservations before, which can be difficult to find in the city.

    Was looking for a quick bite in the fan with the Mrs on a Saturday because we had to be somewhere. Waited in line, was told we could sit at the bar by the hostess because it was over an hour wait for a table… as two people get up from the bar and we move in, the bartender says, “Oh sorry, I’ve reserved these seats for my cousin.” Nehhhh. Bar seats are first come… If your buddy or family is coming to eat, make a reservation for them. #industrybasics

    The drinks were amazing! We got the Cesar salad as a starter and it was delicious! For entrees I got the chicken alfredo and I loved it! My husband got the shrimp and scallops in brandy sauce and wasn’t impressed. We also got two sides, russet potatoes and brussel sprouts. The brussel sprouts were over cooked and the potatoes didn’t taste like much. Overall, I enjoyed the experience but I don’t know that I would go back or recommend it to anyone.

    Not the top Italian food in Richmond, but totally solid; no complaints on the food. Perfect for date night and to hang at the bar. Wine is cheap and variety of food options ensure everyone will be happy.

    The food was disappointingly bland and uninteresting. My dining partner agreed. She had been there before, and remembered it being much better, however, I had no prior experience to compare it with. The service was good though. Still, I won’t be going back.

    The place looks a little sketch on the outside. Construction cones, a beat up table, and their signage is even burnt out. Curb appeal and presentation is important, and they fail.

    to say something positive to start, the restaurant is cozy and the service was friendly. and my husband would never go back but didn’t hate his food.

    i write almost exclusively positive reviews, but the $18 spaghetti with meatballs i got here was the worst i’ve ever had. the sauce was soupy and broken with meat grease. “kobe” meatballs were so gross and undercooked. i had the option between spaghetti and penne, so i picked spaghetti, yet it was partially penne. for this money, i expect fresh pasta, but this was your standard thick noodle from a box. it comes with a tiny, store-bought little roll with no butter. it was so bland and watery — a jar of sauce and a box of pasta would’ve cost me $6 and I would’ve had food for four days. instead i barely had a single meal because i hardly ate anything. I haven’t regretted eating out this much in such a long time. it will be a very long time before i eat out italian again. this was that bad.

    Best Italian food in the city!! However.. I’ve been coming here for years and unfortunately no matter what I do lately they only seem to care about their customers if they are older, rude and snobby. I’ve sat at the bar the last few times next to people who are openly not polite to the servers/bartenders and those people continue to get the smiles and good service. Meanwhile I feel I go out of my way to be relaxed, understanding and a simple guest with little to no personality in response from my server(s). Just so very unfortunate for such an amazing Italian spot with the best food.

    The service was good and friendly but all the dishes came out at once (8 of them which was pretty weird)
    The only decent dish was the polenta.
    Everything else was covered in too much sauce and oil. The pasta was over cooked and looked more like a broth (pasta in brodo) than an actual pasta dish. The veggies also sat in a huge amount oil and broth.
    The bathroom was absolutely disgusting like it hasn’t been cleaned in weeks.
    I heard really good things about this place from locals but my experience was quite subpar

    The food is undeniably fresh. The quality of ingredients are excellent. Oysters and calamari were fresh. The problem is the flavor. The fried oysters were cooked in oil that needed to be changed and you could definitely taste that. The salmon was alright but it didn’t have good flavor. The veal with artichokes was very surprising but not in a positive way. Not sure what happened with that meal, the flavor was quite indescribable. We didn’t finish it nor did we box that. It tasted sour, gamy, but none of these are actual flavor profiles. There’s no way to describe it without saying something that would sound disrespectful. Maybe it was an off day. The whole restaurant smelled like smoke and the air inside was worse than the air inside.

    This place is very unassuming. Being from out of town, it was suggested to me. Cozy, neighborhood atmosphere. Good drink selection, a good amount of menu options, which made it difficult to decide. The Chicken Picatta is so delicious. Tender, juicy and flavorful. It was filling without being too much. Service was quick. Make a reservation if you plan to go during a typically busy period. This will be my return spot during future visits to explore more of the menu.

    Bacchus gave me the old style Italian restaurant vibe I was looking for! My friends and I had a nice bottle of Côtes du Rhône and the calamari for appetizer, which we just fawned over. None of us had ever had calamari that wasn’t fried so it was a new experience for us. The juices were so delicious, we even sopped up the arugula plate garnish in it! Our entrees were great too, the duck was amazing! Would definitely return the next time I’m in town.

    Bacchus is a constantly awesome restaurant. Nancy as the general manager and Chris as the chef, they produce an absolutely authentic Mediterranean dining experience. This is NOT Olive Garden with pasta on the side. What you get is an amazing gastronomic experience true to it’s roots. Duck breast, chicken piccata, scallops and prosciutto, wedge salad, tapenade, and chicken paté. Every bite was heaven. Nancy, the co-owner waited on us. Her French giblets are non pareil!!!

    Parents beware, the owner does not want kids in his restaurant.

    The food was good and our waiter was very friendly and welcoming. However, we had a child with us and were approached by the unhappy owner who claimed to be worried about our son falling through the window that he was touching because “the window is loose”. He also made a comment about it being a nice restaurant and not for kids (no high chairs). After we apologized profusely he responded “… and now we have to clean the window.” Unfortunately we did not enjoy our experience because we clearly were not welcome. We won’t be back.

    Great food & wine! Generous amounts of food for one serving. Friendly staff. Place needs a little more lighting.

  31. Hanna Kim 2023/04

    great cozy environment and food was excellent! the shrimp and scallop pasta was so good. the scallops were tender and cooked perfectly. the shrimp was also very good. the sauce was a little salty but overall it was one of the best i’ve had. the veal marsala was also very good. the veal was thin but the sauce kept it moist. the service was also great. the hostess and waitress were all very helpful and kind. overall would come again!

    This was disappointing to say the least. We went for dinner on a Saturday night with high expectations and lots of good recommendations from friends. When we got there, the wait staff was immediately off putting, talking down to us and providing very minimal and rude interaction/service. When I asked for a single glass option of one of their wines, they brought the whole bottle and poured several glasses before I could say I only ordered one glass. Not wanting to be a problem, I didn’t say anything and ended up paying $30 for a bottle that’s $10 at the grocery store. My partner ordered a steak and it came out severely undercooked. One of their pasta options had no cheese listed under its ingredients, but came with cheese piled on top. For vegan or lactose/dairy-free people, their menu is a bit hard to navigate unless you ask the staff, which, given how rude our waitress was, I wouldn’t want to ask. The food overall was under seasoned. Our water was never refilled through the 1.5 hrs we were there. When given the check, we ended up closing out at the bar because it had been 20 mins since the check had been dropped off and our waitress had disappeared. It all was just a let down. This place has so much potential to be an RVA gem and I hope we just caught them on an off night.

    Keep in mind the portions are extremely generous

    Bacchus is the god of wine. Ironically the wine selection here was not very good but still better than their service. Rude staff, poor knowledge of their own wine. I do not recommend this place and was taken back by the rude way we were spoken to and treated.. Go to Jardin or Celladora for great wine, food, and staff.

    EEEAHHHHHHH

    Apologies for startling you, but the brilliance of my family style meal at Bacchus restaurant was borderline agony. Force fed like the Grinch during the annual Holiday Cheermeister, I loved every bite of my unceasingly nonstop pasta cuisine, though my belly rumbled in a state of fullness that might as well have said “IT’S GONNA BLOW!” The quality in grain behind the bread was what one might call “good.” Left enervated and without an ounce of motivation to move, the staff was kind enough to let me sleep on my table. Now that’s what I call great service. Will go again.

    The food at Bacchus is incredible, the menu is second to none in Richmond, and the staff continues to impress me time and time again.

    I was there tonight, 12/18, and it was very busy. Walk-ins lined up at the door, phone ringing nonstop, packed with reservations… The bartender and waitstaff were calm, polite, and professional and I never heard them complain once. Very impressive and extremely rare in this area.

    Hiring well done! Love to support this local gem.

    The customer service was great, but the food was just ok. We ordered several dishes and no one was in love with their food. The marsala was abnormally sweet, the carbonara was definitely not authentic (tasted like a pasta with gravy) and none of the main dishes ordered were served with pasta. Just disappointed overall with the reviews I read.

  51. Lorie Honor 2022/12

    Bustling and busy when me and husband stopped in for mid-week dinner but not too busy for friendly seating and service at the bar. Really good vibe from staff, with servers and kitchen working seamlessly without performative huffing and puffing. Food was flavorful and well-seasoned. Pasta portions were definitely shareable!

    This place nails it every time we have been. Usually I get the steak as they cook it perfect, its a huge cut and super great price. I have had 5-7 things and every time its great.

    Their service is also always top notch. We went once during COVID when we could not sit at the bar so the set us up with a high top against the bar and worked around us on the floor.

    They also make a killer espresso martini.

The place itself has a very great feel all around and I will definitely be eating from here again.

  61. Michael 2022/07

    First impression is a cozy dimly lit restaurant with a very large menu. Wine and drink selection vast. Went on a busy Thursday and they were clearly understaffed with two FOH. The attitude showed. No attention from wait staff just a go-go-go mentality as food was pushed out. Clientele vastly rich older people who can blow money on overpriced food. Entree and appetizer served w grocery store mixed greens? Carbonara served with undercooked bacon? Plating choices from a target selection? Fried oysters with no salt? Odd choices but seems to be just a gimmick Italian restaurant. Weird dynamic but matches the typical food fare on Main St with good ambiance and a target towards those who love to drink but with very little culinary bite. Great place to enjoy a good bottle of wine and bunch on small plates which will appear better then they taste with every drink. Looking for Italian? 8 1/2 Pizza and Edos Squid might stand the test but steer clear here.

  62. Heather Safley 2022/07

    We ordered a smorgasbord, everything – FANTASTiC. Firstly, they serve Rockfish: hard to find. Extra Delicious

    Their fried oysters are a staple, another rare find and the creamed spinach melts in your mouth

    Want to go back immediately

    If review was based on food alone the rating would be 4 + stars. However, the meal was ruined by the server. She was one of the most rude servers we have experienced. There was another server who did help her. When she came to check on our table, she was delightful and did not make us feel as if we were inconveniencing her like co worker. Bacchus may need to consider hiring more friendly servers to take care of their customers.

    Love this place! Every time I’m in town I make sure to stop by here because it’s delicious and actually reasonably priced. Some of the pasta dishes are really oily, but I’m not on a diet so it doesn’t bother me any! Glad to see it made it through the pandemic and is still open.

    We were celebrating friends Anniversary from out of town..called in advance to tell them this and to try to put a candle or write something on the dessert plate..nothing done. The husband, an old Sicilian Italian, orders a bottle of wine and was presented with the worst pouring etiquette I have ever seen. After the waitress poured his glass she let him taste it and basically slammed the bottle down next to his glass and left! She brought multiple glasses but didn’t even offer to pour anyone else a glass. I could see he was a little taken back and I immediately apologized.We chose this over any restaurant at The Jefferson where they were staying..the food was ok ( except one appetizer and one side: excellent fried oysters and broccolini).

    Not bad but not great Italian restaurant. Wine menu needs work. Antipasto has no meats. Carbonara made with cream. Red sauce was good. Not enough staff to handle the crowd. I’ll find another option for Italian in the future.

    Chalk this place up for the 3rd real deal Italian Restaurant I have had the pleasure of dining at in Va. The sauce… so simple, rustic in nature, and without gross hamburger in it. Hard to choose any course off the menu… it all looks and sounds so good. Service was impeccable. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that we didn’t see a children’s menu but, Italians bend over backwards for the bambini so maybe ask when you’re making reservations. Yes, reservations, make them well in advance. We waited our first time and never got a table. People don’t usually cancel them… according to or server.

    My partner and I tried Bacchus while visiting Richmond. We were both very pleased with the ambiance, friendly staff, and delicious food. I tried the shrimp and salmon, my boyfriend had the steak with gorgonzola, and we split the brussel sprouts as an appetizer. We left full and happy, with the portions being very generous for the price. I’d recommend if you’re looking for a fine dining experience in a cozy and relaxed setting.

    Appallingly bad Italian food, words can’t even do justice how bad the red sauce is. Anyone who claims this place is good just doesn’t like authentic Italian and is probably afraid of salt and pepper.

  117. Mark Baine 2020/12

    Fair prices, lively staff, and Amazing food. I frequent this restaurant every time I come to Richmond. My father lives around the corner and he’s well-known there. They have even named a martini after him: the Walter-ini. Can’t recommend this place more highly.

Our server was kind, thoughtful, and extremely personable. Also, the food tasted great and was amazing value for the price! $15 for pasta with chicken in a GIANT bowl…. we ate leftovers the next day for lunch. I would absolutely come back!!!

  130. Alicia Fernandez 2020/08

    Our experience tonight was terrible. Our waitress, Hannah, was hardly present and rude. The chicken Marsala was overcooked. When asked to take it off the bill, she told us no. When asked to speak to a manager, Hannah came back and said ‘she was too busy’ but gave her permission to take the meal off the bill. Would not be back! Nothing special about this place.

    Can’t go wrong with this place at all. It’s great that they’ve kept service going during the pandemic with take-out options. If you’re looking for some solid pasta and wine – this is it. Doesn’t get any better in Richmond!

  138. Arturas 2020/05

    Long time fans of Bacchus. However, our recent experience has challenged that notion. Today, I believe was it. Ordered scallops with arugula salad and a few sides for take out. Picked the order, everything on time, everything good. Portions as always huge, word for the wise – order half of what you want, and you will still have too much. Brought dinner home and the “aroma” from the scallops suddenly became quite strong and frankly overpowering. Unfortunately, I did not notice the smell in the car as the weather was nice and I took the top down. Not sure if scallops were previously frozen and went bad or what, but the smell (“ammonia” like) was quite strong. This was before we opened the packaging containers. Needless to say, a really unpleasant experience. We had to toss the scallops and still are trying to vent the house of the “aroma.” The arugula salad and the sides (endives and brussels sprouts) were as always well prepared. The scallops on the other hand were bad, really bad.
    We have been ordering takeout from Bacchus over the last month (hello Covid) and have never had this type of experience. Tuna, duck, all were good.
    Not sure what to make. I guess be careful what you order, perhaps skip the seafood?

  139. Renard Benjamin 2020/04

  141. T.L. Reed 2020/04

    About two weeks ago I stopped in to Bacchus for dinner and my favorite cocktail and all of it was wonderful as usual. I was really hungry and planned on leftovers for the next day’s meal, too, so I ordered veal parmigiana, a bowl of garlic and herb penne pasta, a bowl of brussel sprouts with bacon and golden raisins, topped off with a chocolate martini. The bowls are big enough for two people, the Brussels sprouts were heavenly as was the veal, and the martini about 10000 calories of sinful buzzing goodness. You don’t need dessert if you drink one of those. Oh, and I forgot that I got the antipasto as well with lots of different flavors with the olives, pickled cauliflower and lots morel. It was all wonderful and about two extra days of food for me. They are a small restaurant, made smaller with COVID restrictions, so I’d call to make a reservation first, as I got turned away the other night when I was jonesing for those sprouts and a martini and just dropped in. Lol

  142. ChuckIT82 (ChuckIT82) 2020/03

    Bacchus, what a treat it is to have this restaurant around. the portions are huge, the price per portion ratio is off the charts good! the menu is huge and diverse and all of it is tasty and shareable.

    i recommend the black truffle risotto and veal marsala, sautéed calamari, blackened kale Caesar salad, beans and sausage meals

    the wine selection is decent! it can get crowded so get a reservation for sure! or pony up at the bar!

  143. Ella Gardner 2020/03

    Perfect service as usual. Very cute server and cook we could watch. Food was perfect, the gorgonzola bacon ceasar was the BOMB, I would suggest going there just for that. Scallops were friggin awesome. I’ve had scallops before which I would imagine were fake or over cooked because I thought I didnt like scallops but these were succulent perfection. The ambiance is always on point, the perfect place for a date, anniversary, birthday. Classic Richmond go-to restaurant. I have never been disappointed. Though I do miss their short rib or braised beef Bolognese they had like 10 years ago.

    What a wonderful place to have gourmet meal with fresh ingredients. My husband had the salmon and shrimp served in lobster sauce. I had a hardy lamb shank in white bean broth. We also shared a fried goat cheese salad and Bacon Brussels sprout on the side. Everything was delicious! The best of all, our waitress Hanna was extremely friendly and helpful. We will definitely visit Bacchus again.

  157. Renee L 2019/11

    First time eating here, we recommended by a friend, portions were large, sides are large enough for at least 2 people. Food was very good, would recommend reservations as it is not very big. Would definitely eat there again.

  158. Owens Simpson 2019/10

    Great service even though there was only two servers working a packed floor. We tried the Kale salad and it was SO good. We also tried the baked palenta with mozzarella. We new we were kind of taking a risk, but the mozzarrella portion was really small compared to the whole dish and was concentrated just in the center. That made it difficult to evenly enjoy for the whole dish, so I would recommend trying it with Gorgonzola. For pasta we got the Gorgonzola cream and peas with penne. The sauce was very watery and would not stay on the penne when you forked it. So you would have a mostly bare piece of pasta in your mouth. If you can master a good spoon and fork combo to actually taste the sauce, the flavor was pretty good.

  166. Amanda Newbould 2019/09

    My husband and I went here for his birthday with a gift certificate we received from a radio show and are thankful we didn’t spend our own money on the experience. He ordered the New York strip and I had the spaghetti alfredo with added chicken. My food tasted good for the price ($15). Like a classic olive garden dish, but my husband was pretty disappointed. He said his steak was either a hanger steak or just not cooked properly. As it’s priced at $23 that was a let down. Then we get to the fun part, as we are on our way to the movies we both have the worst stomach ache. I was in the bathroom for about the first 30 minutes of the movie and here we are at 1am still making trips to the bathroom. Unfortunately will not be returning and it’s a bummer because the 2 pasta entrees and wine special looked promising as well.

    First time since 2010 but still delicious! Lovely, intimate atmosphere. Steamed mussels and clams in white wine broth where delicious. The chicken liver pate was a much bigger portion than expected for the price. It was more of a creamed texture than I’m used to but was good. The Kobe beef meatballs and pasta were fantastic. As was the gorgonzola and peas pasta. Very nice place at a reasonable price.

  175. Abdullah Elamari 2019/08

    Okay starters. Though main course was sub-par. Was not worth the money at all. Way overpriced. Generous portions you could say but it was overkill. Way too much food on a plate. While eating, parts of the dish got cold. Was also very oily, could make better pasta at home. Desert was nice. And the drinks were good. Ambiance is average. Service could have been better.

    Delicious food! The service was so so. The staff was somewhat friendly. I have to give them a pass though because it was during restaurant week and it was very busy. I hope that’s the reason why they were barely cordial and friendly. I would like to try to visit again outside of restaurant week as I think it would be a better experience! The 4 star rating is based solely on the lack of friendliness of the staff. Other than that it is definitely a 5 star restaurant! Hoping to visit again and have a much friendlier staff!

    New go-to spot for me and the girls! Bacchus is a quaint and lovely little hole-in-the-wall spot with large portions and great prices. What could be better than pasta and wine!

    Staff has been friendly and accommodating each time we’ve been. My only recommendation is make a reservation because it is a small space, and tables fill up fast — especially on weekends.

    We love it here. Food is consistently excellent. Great wait staff too that has been there for years. Chicken picatta Is my favorite. Salads are large enough to share.

  202. Hannah Zaino 2018/10

    What a wonderful little spot in the city. The best food doesn’t have to be complicated, and Bacchus validates this 5000%. Delicious pasta, hearty salads, warm atmosphere.

    Terrific Italian food!

  204. Morgan Walls 2018/10

    The food here is UNREAL!!! Portions are big. Love any salad on the menu… pasta is out of this world and the monkfish is decadent. An absolute must try (again and again and again)!

  205. L 2018/10

    The food was very good, basic home cooked Italian, as far from the Olive Garden’s menu as possible. The prices were excellent. However, the wait staff were borderline hostile. Surprising, given the laid back atmosphere of the restaurant. Wine list could be improved, especially the house Chianti.

    Delicious Restaurant Week fare

  207. William Eastman 2018/08

    Great local bistro for wine and apps. They do have an excellent dinner menu but our favorite is a bottle of wine and calamari at the bar.

  208. Trace Woodbury 2018/07

    Always great food

    Food is great and the portions are generous

  211. Julian 2018/07

    Some of the best pesto I have ever had. Always has Two Hearted on tap and a warm atmosphere. Staff is always friendly and attentive.

  212. Fernando Tejeda 2018/06

  218. Nicole Ianniello 2018/05

  219. Paul Flammia 2018/05

    Softshells crabs yummy! Everything on the menu is amazing.

  220. joann dees 2018/05

    A sort of New Orleans themed restaurant in a unique area in beautiful Richmond. Reasonably priced cocktails and friendly service. Parking can be somewhat difficult. Enjoy!

  221. Gordon Bass 2018/04

    Amazing food! Had spicy lamb sausage with white beans and spinach. Also polenta with marinara topped with Gorgonzola cheese. OMG

  222. Mike Koziol 2018/04

    Quite restaurant. Very busy, but staff was very helpful.

  223. Jason Davis 2018/03

    Great place, awesome food with open kitchen

  224. Jerry Gaetano 2018/02

    Great food. Great service.

  225. Julie Charbonnier 2018/02

    Large portions of decent pasta but nothing out of this world. They didn’t have a lot of options on the menu, and ran out of the lamb sausage early on. Nice atmosphere with an upstairs section that can be used for large parties. Good wine selection.

  226. Anna Gavryliuk 2018/01

    Best food in Richmond!

  227. Kristina Dannelley 2017/12

    Large plates!

    High-end food that won’t break the bank

  235. joshua vitale 2017/08

    Incredible cuisine, huge portions, open kitchen, and constantly changing menu. A local standard.

  236. Darlene Brunzell 2017/07

    Bacchus is great for date night or a casual business dinner. The portions are generous and the food is delicious!

  237. Antonio Vega 2017/07

    Spicy lamb was amazing although the shrimp and scallops had a little to much garlic. All in all a great experience.

  238. Steven G Hennessee 2017/05

    I love their greens, beet, nut and fried goat cheese salad with a bowl of the class and mussels

  239. Kimie James 2017/05

    One of my new fave places. Everything was incredible. Atmosphere, food, drinks, everything was on point. Get the mussels and thank me later.

  240. Toan Phan 2017/05

    Excellent Italian food. We come back to this place.

    Had an amazing experience as a first time guest here! The food was absolutely phenomenal and the service was on point all night. Cannot wait to visit again.

  242. Talia Clusman 2017/03

    Went for restaurant week. It was okay.

  243. Feniantim 2017/03

    I go here a lot. While I have favorites, linguini with garlic and anchovy, or pancetta and tomatoes, I do venture into the unknown. So when I went a couple of days ago, I just sat at the bar, had a cocktail, and just had a bowl of soup, beer and cheese soup. The next day my wife asked what I did for dinner the night before and I told her. And that it was delicious. She says “Everything we ever have there is delicious”. She’s right. We go other places but I’m not sure why.

  244. Just Matthews 2017/03

    As usual the service is attentive and the food is well prepared. I ordered the polenta and did not care for it and the the waiter, Allen removed it from the bill without me asking for it to be removed. Thats something we dont see anymore, I was impressed. Try the escargot, wonderful, if you like that sort of thing.

  245. Anna Barnes 2017/02

    Great food, huge portions, friendly service!

  246. Ben Tuckwiller 2017/01

    The mussels are so good staff is friendly. A little pricey but good sized portions.

  247. Tatyana Fadeeva 2016/09

    I love this place! The food tastes fresh and has a great vegetarian selection. The cocktails are good too and they make unique ones that aren’t on the menu that you ask for.

  248. Christopher Helme 2016/09

    Great food, great service and a excellent atmosphere.

  249. Gonzalo Aida 2016/03

    One of our personal #RVADine favorites. Everything is good! Make a reservation in advance!

  250. Christina Janek 2016/03

    Local hot spot, huge portions and great prices on pasta. Average prices on everything else. Some unique options, and a large selection to choose from. Food quality can be inconsistent though occasionally. (Last time our broccolini was extremely bitter like they burned the garlic.)

  251. Mark Tatham 2016/01

    The food was delicous and the ambiance great. I also like the layout of the place. Staff were freindly and helpful.

  252. Bryan Hargrave 2016/01

    Great service. Amazing cauliflower and spinach soup. The food was probably very good but just not my preferred style of food. Lots of seafood and mushrooms.

  253. joseph topper 2016/01

    Im a Chef from Philadelphia passing through Richmond. Their chef came through with top notch dishes to satisfy a road weary appetite. I left happy and smiling, content as I could ask for.

  254. beth ferrara 2015/11

    I’d love to give Bacchus a better review, but I can’t because they are consistently inconsistent. When they are good they are great, but the kitchn and wait staff can seem lazy. I ordered their broccolini tonight and it was almost all stalks that you would throw away if making at home. The sauce was also light on olive oil. Also the spinach salad was “mature” so the leaves were stalky, tough and bitter, which did not go well with the tart apple vinagrette. The rolls are always good. With the rest, I have to wonder if they are sloppy, cutting corners, or both.

  255. Carson Lucarelli, Hopewell Downtown Partnership 2014/06

    With a Very strong, and often overlooked, kitchen, Bacchus brings warm, European dining to residents of The Fan and beyond. A fine alternative to the other “fancy Italian place.”

  256. Joanna Wares 2014/05

    Delicious!

  257. Brennan West 2014/05

    The salmon in this place is all the way live especially when you added the home made bread alongside with it, man, to good.

  258. William Daughtrey 2012/08

    Great soft shell crabs, wonderful mussels in wine sauce and generous salads.

  259. Bob Lewis 2012/06

    Great food, lovely place, service was slow and inattentive.

  260. bee sawyer 2012/03

    Nice place to relax staff was very helpful and friendly

  261. lauri ragosta 2011/12

    Couldn’t really tell what the food was like to because they were out of half the menu on a Tuesday night and the excuse was that they just came out of “restaurant week” on Sunday. Really? You didn’t realize that you were returning to your normal menu and still had four days before your next shipment or not done a special shipment. That is just poor management.

  262. Amanda Hartman McLellan 2011/01

    The food is usually good – my favorite is the beet and goat cheese salad! It’s a bit small, but as long as you know that going in, no problems.
