Average to good, if somewhat pretentious. Welcome to SJO!

The food is good, although the service lacks (slow, and not too with it in terms of culinary knowledge and different styles of food preparation. Just ask about pasta asciutta and watch the waiter's eyes glaze over, then call a conference with the maitre, who also goes blank). A West L.A. wannabe... read more

The Bacchus staff were prompt and responsive. I attended a private group function and enjoyed dinner selections from a fixed menu. Art pieces decorate the walls and some are available for sale. The menu offers a range of options. I would recommend the Nutella crepe for dessert.

The place is nice in every aspect, but the food is regular, nothing special. I order three plates and non of them was good. Not terrible but nothing good to say.

This restaurant looks super good! Very nice tables, flowers, table clots etc.. It is very elegant also, so when you enter you do have high expectations. We ordered the corvina fish, gnocchi, pizza and risotto fungi. They were all good but not delicious. The service quite bad. We asked for some spice sauce for the pizza and it never came.... More

Spent ten days in Costa Rica and ate at some very good restaurants, but this was by far the best. The fish soup was wonderful and the beef was by far the best. Perfectly cooked and very tender. Good wine list. Friendly efficient service.

My wife and I had a fantastic night there last night. The carpacho was a great start. Wine selection is great. Our red bottle was served at the right temperature. About 8 to 10 degrees Celsius. I ordered a risotto and my wife had wood baked shrimp. Both dishes were excellent. Price for two was about $100 including the bottle... More

Lovely atmosphere to enjoy a nice dinner. Have been a couple of times and delighted with everything I've ordered. The service is excellent but get there early to avoid the long wait. Not even gonna say anything about the wait or prices because I see nothing wrong with taking your time to prepare an excellent meal and then charging what... More
