Great Service, Beautiful Atmosphere, Excellent Meal

Dining out with dietary restrictions is difficult, moreso when you are far from home. I called Bacchus ahead to ask if they would be willing to work around my restrictions or if I should look elsewhere. The gentleman who answered the phone was knowledgeable, friendly, and reassuring.

Went before hockey game to Bacchus and the four of us loved it. Brent was our server and he took the time to ensure our drinks were made to our liking and our food was received well. Each of us ordered different appetizers and we were not disappointed. The entrees were delicious. I loved the atmosphere and would have enjoyed... More

First let me say that the Bacchus Wine Bar & Restaurant is one of our favorite places to go for dinner, to grab a drink, or even for dessert and coffee after a show at Shea’s (my wife and I even had our engagement party there and it was awesome). But, I’m writing this review today to share some negative... More

We actually stopped there to try some wines and in the end we stayed there for a longer time. We choose 3 different beers (you have a choice between 10 different ones) and one bottle of red wine. The red wine was really good, but sadly the wine was way to cold and we had to wait 30min to start... More

Chose this restaurant to go for dinner after reading the reviews and could not have been more pleased! We were seated very quickly upon arriving with our reservation and promptly attended to. We ordered the scallops as a appetizer and they were amazing! Maybe the best scallops we've ever had. Our meals were just as good. Service was awesome and... More

There are very few restaurants which I would consider outstanding; as to be considered outstanding, it needs to have staff, food and wine that goes well beyond a traditional 5 star restaurant. Well Bacchus took outstanding to a whole new level for us. Visiting Buffalo from Toronto for the weekend, we didn't plan any specific dinner, but figure we would... More

Have been to Bacchus several times - both for the bar area and for dinner. Had a pre-theatre dinner this week that was tremendous as usual. The service was excellent and the food was superior. I had the Special Butternut squash soup of the day which was unique in presentation and delicious. I followed up with my favorite spinach salad... More

Absolutely love Bacchus--I can completely rely on it being great every time. wonderful bar drinks, imaginative menu, great appetizers, nicely done patio. Even when it's crowded we like to stop here and have appetizers & a quick meal at the bar--best way to get to a show on time!

Every step of our meal was wonderful. We started with the Fig Gorgonzola featured app. We had never experienced Gorgonzola that didn't over power everything, it was mild and creamy. I had the Ahi Tuna, unbelievable! My husband had the Gorgonzola encrusted rib eye and ate every morsel. The service was friendly and engaging. Ask for a table at the... More
