Elegant setting with knowledgeable staff. Wine list is decent and the menu was ok, just felt it was lacking a WOW factor. Would try again in future.

Recommended by concierge at the Mansion and very happy with the dinner. Great food and service. Cool bar, very nicely decorated. Went to First Niagara for a show after dinner -- fast and easy trip on train. Would go back for again for sure.

Valet parking, excellent friendly service, and nice atmosphere! The food was great! We ordered two small plates and two large plates. The salmon was amazing. Didn't have room left for dessert but enjoyed every bite! Will return.

I enjoyed attending a birthday party for a good friend at this restaurant. Food and service were both excellent.

Table service was great; scallop day special and "steak&eggs" were very well done. Mains of halibut, duck and filet mignon were all very well prepared and elegantly presented. Wine list is quite extensive, and you can find several good values

In town for a conference and met up with a group of friends for a last minute dinner. Considering the group was pretty large, 7 people, they were able to accommodate us on a busy Saturday night. But I would recommend reservations. Service: Quick and efficient. Very polite gentlemen from Bangladesh. We met his brother later at our hotel, The... More

Last night was my second visit to Bacchus. The first was a milestone birthday for me in January, and yesterday was for a dear friend's milestone birthday. We all gave it raves both times. Service in January was impeccable, last night, adequate. Food both times was outstanding. The Filet was perfectly cooked to order and sigh-inducing., and the gnocchi and... More

The atmosphere is rustic-elegant, lots of wood and linen tablecloths. That's not the biggest draw, however. It's the food. Starting with a balsamic vinegar, olive oil, parsley and garlic dip for terrific olive bread, then a Caesar salad where every inch of every leaf was covered with dressing and finely ground parmesan (and topped with a parmesan "cracker), My main...

Here from Seattle area for my daughter's wedding. She and groom set it all up, as they wanted full control. I didn't know what to expect other than that it was touted as a fine wine bar with good food. The ravioli were superb. The beef tenderloin melted in your mouth. The wine list was excellent. We treated ourselves and... More
