We decided on all small plates for dinner. Everything was deliciously prepared and artfully presented. Excellent service. The patio could use a few plants to create a garden atmosphere.

Our family of seven adults went to this restaurant to celebrate my husband's birthday. The staff were pleasant and efficient. All the meals were great, except for one. Do not order the rack of lamb!! My husband and my son had the tuna and they said it was fantastic. My daughter and grand-daughter had the chicken, which they thoroughly enjoyed.... More

We sat at the bar and had appetizers and wine. Perfect for the two of us. The Shrimp and Calamari was AWESOME! Very popular around 7-8 so make reservations, especially on weekends!

This restaurant in downtown Buffalo is easily one of the best I have encountered in all of my travels. I have lived in NY and LA and Brian Mietus, head chef and owner, has done a wonderful thing here. The care and art expressed thru the delicious meals shine thru every bite. The plates are interesting and palate inspiring. As... More

We had a terrific dinner at Bacchus, and will happily return there. Food and service are excellent. We really enjoyed the roasted beet salad, pecan crusted Atlantic salmon, and the Bouillabaisse. Great wine list. A great dinner choice in downtown Buffalo. Free valet parking is available.

Excellent food, excellent wine, excellent service. There isn't much more that needs to be said. I've been several times and never had a less than stellar experience. Servers are friendly and attentive. Food is fresh and flavorful. The ambiance is warm and hip without being trendy. Valet parking is extremely convenient. Prices are reasonable for the level of quality, but... More

My boyfriend and I, being in the restaurant industry ourselves, tend to be a little more picky on certain things and less picky on others. I loved everything about my first experience here! Server (Rob)was knowledgeable and confident with suggestions if needed, and always seemed to come by at the perfect times. Courses moved along at a perfect pace. Food... More

My husband & I like to go to Bacchus for dinner before a show at Sheas. The ambiance of Bacchus is great, and really makes for a special, romantic night. The food was great, I had the poached pear salad & filet, my husband had the Caesar salad & NY strip steak. I would go back for the poached pear... More
