First time dinner

Very wonderful atmosphere with a very good vibe. The service was great. We went with another couple who were regulars so they assisted with the selections. Well, I am not sure if I mean selections or the fact that it is like large portion tapas. Order an appetizer or two and share, then a main... read more

My wife and I were visiting from out of town and went here for dinner on Sunday evening January 10, 2016 with another couple who lives nearby and comes here all the time. This was both my wife and mine first visit and it was very good. The location is easy to get to and there are normally open parking... More

We've been going to Bacchus for years when we lived in Richmond. Now that we live abroad, I still make it a point to come back. Very cozy place with friendly service and great food. Plenty of vegetarian options, whether you're craving the pasta or the vegetable dishes. My favorites are the brocollini, whole roasted Cremini mushrooms and cauliflower side... More

Four of us ate dinner here after a day of sightseeing in richmond. Great veal, duck and seafood; very generous portions ( don't over-order). The server and kitchen accommodated a mushroom allergy very graciously.

Inconsistent - I'm struggling to understand the variability in hygiene and service at Bacchus. One visit is excellent, the next has a rather troubling insect, crawling along the bar, and upon sorting out the matter, and politely and discretely passing to the staff, we were invisible for the rest of the evening. Not a thank you, bye, nor acknowledgment. Pity... More

Love this restaurant! Besides having an incredible pasta menu, it offers over 20 small plates at a very reasonable cost $6-11 with everything from a white bean dip to a goat cheese salad to a portabella mushroom with red peppers and cheese. Wine list is wonderful and varied. Custom service is extremely efficient. Great evening.

I find Bacchus a little streaky. Sometimes their food and service are great. Other times I feel they cut corners with quality. Still it is a very cozy romantic atmoshpere with a lot of upside. If you order their pasta, the bill can be quite reasonable even for larger groups.

I am visiting from the Channel Islands.My sister and I went there Sunday night (Easter), and what an excellent place. The food is fresh, well seasoned, and so tasty. The atmosphere is wonderful, and the booths are comfortable. Tara, our waitress, was charming, efficient, and full of sound advice. Bacchus is very reasonably priced, and portions are generous. Go there.

Enjoyed meeting friends here for a wonderful meal. The portions are large so we easily split the beet salad with goat cheese. My husband had the scallops which he loved and I had the duck breast with port and portobello mushrooms! Outstanding! Only one server for the night so she was a little hectic.
