A1 service and food. This is a very elegant and classy restaurant. Would recommend this as a place to celebrate a special occasion or for a great dining experience. Not recommended for real young children.

Very romantic setting- top notch food & service. Would highly recommend an evening at Bacchus. If you are a wine lover, be sure to check out the wine list. And, although it sounds simple, order the selection of cheeses after dinner to accompany your wine. Great experience

We were so excited to try Bacchus again after hearing so many great reviews about the restaurant. Sorely disappointed is all I can say. We were greeted warmly at the door and promptly sat at our table. Then we waited. And waited. Finally drinks and menus. The menu is unimpressive to say the least, nothing really great. We waited and... More

Dined with my partner for the New Year's 5 course meal. The food and drinks were absolutely amazing! The most tender filet I've ever had, the potato and leek soup was to die for and we tried white truffles which were heavenly! Lots of selections in each special category to please anyone's taste buds. The waitstaff was very attentive. This... More

Excellent food. Excellent service. Excellent ambience. Coat check and parking valet are available. The location is in downtown Milwaukee with an outstanding view of the lake. I recommend it heartily for that special occasion, anniversary, or other occasion. The atmosphere is subdued but not boring. The filet I had melted in my mouth and could easily be cut with a...

Good food, something for everyone from vegetarian to steaks or seafood. Great deserts. Lots of room for business conversation over dinner. Another fine Bartolotas restaurant

Been to other Bartolotta restaurants. This one is my least favorite. The ambiance is beautiful and the wine list impressive, but this experience didn't live up to the reputation that preceded it. The waiter was not very helpful and gave off a snobby air. We ordered a bottle of wine and an appetizer to share which was the highlight of... More

We enjoyed a wine dinner for 4 couples and enjoyed great wines from Twomey and Silver Oak - the pairings of the wine and the Silver Oak Chef really delivered

Once again, last Friday, my wife and I visited Bacchus for a special occasion. The service was extraordinary as the waiter and two colleagues anticipated our every need. As one would expect from a restaurant named after the Roman god of wine, the wine list was exceptional. As an aspiring oenophile, I appreciated having several unusual varietals and highly regarded...
