Not a normal night out as being from Toronto and staying overnight to attend the Bills game Sunday and deciding to try some "fine dining" in Buffalo. This place was anything but despite the excessive pricing. Burnt fillet which shows up cold then gets replaced by a piping hot one which was clearly right off the grill and wasn't given... More

Steak and wine here was delicious. We were given the private room in the back. It was a great atmosphere where we had a great dinner meeting. The service was excellent. Their timing was perfect.

We recently visited Bacchus during a weekend in Buffalo. The food was excellent! Our waiter, Dan, made outstanding recommendations. The fig salad was incredible, as were the seared scallops with an onion relish. My partner chose the bouillabaisse, which he loved. The dishes were unique & savory. The atmosphere was perfect. A must try!

We celebrated my cousins wedding this weekend at this amazing establishment. The ambiance of Bacchus first and foremost makes you feel like royalty upon entering. The staff was top notch and you lacked for nothing while you are here. Every bit of food that was served from start to finish was absolutely amazing. If you are in Buffalo this restaurant... More

Love the decoration and vintage feel. Great corner open windows. Bar is spacious The menu options feels a bit like a tapas restaurant with the small plates. Has a good international selection and the cool think is the specials. Good for any appetite.
