This place won't be found in other big cities because it is a Richmond landmark. The food is cooked and brought right to your table (in my case the bar). The wine is also reasonably priced and was excellent. The shrimp and scallop scampi was...More

We ate well overall and had an array of different dishes. I had scallops and was slightly disappointed in that they were overcooked. Most members of the party had cocktails that were well prepared. I had an fine Martini. Our waiter was terrific--personable and helpful....More

This has become one of our favorite places in Richmond. Went with a large crowd, sampled a large variety of the menu and everything was delicious.

We've been eating at Bacchus for 10 years but tonight was off! Pasta and vegatebles were not salted and NO garlic or olive oil. Different cooks? As this is not their style! We left our dishes and did not take home.

I've come here numerous times and almost every restaurant week in the last 2 years. The snails sautéed in garlic lemon, oil and spinach are to die for. Could eat them all day! Got the rockfish with zucchini, green beans and creme sauce. Perfect portion....More

Everything one expects in a neighborhood eatery - great personalized service, tasty food, and reasonable prices. The chicken picatta, shrimp diavlo, and the fried goat cheese salad, their specialty, were all out of this world. The portions are large, so best shared. I should have...More
