Not sure if Bacchanalia has a Michelin star yet but it deserves at least one, if not two. Each course is a creation of gastronomic excellence. Service is outstanding. My wife and I went to celebrate our anniversary and the occasion was quite memorable. We brought with us a bottle of 1990 Chateau Margaux, which was handled with appropriate reverence... More

There is a reason that this restaurant is ranked at the top of Atlanta's best restaurants year after year. It does not matter what your order or "surprises" in between, it just always taste really good. While I have my personal favorites - the crab fritters and the chocolate valhana cake to start and end the meal, the soups, main... More

Not a beat was skipped at this restaurant. For someone who targets elevated dining experiences, this place certainly did not disappoint. Very professional service. Amazing and extensive wine program. Andrew (sommelier) was very helpful with wine choices that catered to our flavor profiles. 5-course menu. Lovely evolution of dishes. Creative and very well-prepared courses. It definitely feels like a fine-dining... More

We really enjoyed our 5 course meal from the drinks, wait staff to the food itself. Most of the items were so good and others interestingly odd. My dining partner and I shared our items so we could taste a wide variety of the offerings. As another diner pointed out, the dress of the clientele varies greatly. Even though the... More

Visiting a restaurant that has been named Atlanta's best for years, I expected to be wowed with unforgettable meals...that would make us moan with every bite we take. Only one course that I can say was pretty good..which was a little tiny bitty bite of crab fritter. The rest? Blah...disappointment. We are foodies that travel every month for pleasure and... More

I really like everything about this upscale restaurant. It wins coveted award for best restaurant in Atlanta year after year. Very special for special occasions. On the formal side, but I also like to eat dinner at the bar as well. White tablecloths, service excellent, well taken care of - a fabulous dinner and a fabulous experience. Have been here... More

I was here with a large party and we ate in the restaurant area that is only publicly open on Saturday nights. The other nights they use it for private occasions such as ours. To get to the main restaurant upstairs you have to go through this really unique and lovely kitchen store which will make you want to buy... More

very knowledgeable wait staff. My fiance remarked that they all seemed like they went to culinary school. Excellent tasting menu, very attentive service. A great "special occasion" restaurant!

The food was absolutely delicious! I had the shrimp appetizer, crab fritter, melt in your mouth lamb, and basil cannelloni. In between courses, they brought surprises, which were delectable treats that filled our palates. We were not disappointed by any of our choices and yes, portions are small. If they were any larger, you would be ill when you left!... More
