Summer Film Series is a MUST!

After talking about it for over one year, my friend and I finally made it to Bacchus for wine, dinner and Summer Movie Night! We had such a wonderful time. Our server was friendly and attentive in refilling our wine glasses (very important for movie night). During the summer, Bacchus hosts a... read more

Loved this place! Great atmosphere, and the food and service were outstanding. My only reason for a 4 star rating is the wine list is pretty limited for a restaurant that calls itself a wine bar, however the wine offered is excellent...otherwise highly recommend this place!

A special trip, World Class restraurant that provides a unique experience with most every visit, and we've been there 22 times over the past 6 years, And never lived closer then 120 miles from Biffalo. This time it was house prepared smoke salmon, curried with beets as the source of sugar. (I don't e even think of red beets having... More

Bacchus is located within the Theatre District in Buffalo, so it's perfect for a pre show dinner or after show cocktails. Food here is excellent. The Corn Tortellini with Grilled Shrimp was spectacular, you also can't go wrong with the Mussels, but what really keeps me coming back to Bacchus is their Bouillabaisse. (Sadly they didn't have it on the... More

Now that there's a nighttime hotel crowd increasing Downtown it's a sure thing that Bacchus will hold its own. It's a rare find on Chippewa Street where the fare is typically pub grub of chicken wings and fried food. Bacchus offers elegant dining in a quiet yet buzzy dining room. The wine list is good. On second thought I would... More

We had concert tickets so we made our reservations for 2 hour prior to make sure we had plenty of time. The restaurant only had a handful of tables when we arrived. We were seated immediately and given the nightly special list shortly thereafter. Our server was not as enthusiastic about the specials as some of the ones around us... More

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.
