You could split any dish. They are huge and delicious. Small restaurant reservations suggested. Nice bar good wine list reasonable prices would go back but split entree

We discovered that the restaurant where we had a reservation just wasn't going to work out so we took a chance on getting in at Bacchus at the last minute. I should have made plans to eat at Bacchus in the first place: we had two guests from out-of-town and I knew I could count on Bacchus to make for... More

My husband and I visited with our son and his fiance'. We had reservations because it was the end of Restaurant Week. We all had 3 course meals. I had the shrimp scampi with brandy and tomatoes as an appetizer, which was quite good. Someone else had the sauteed snails and said they were quite good. For the main course,... More

Our group of six active seniors visited this restaurant during Richmond Restaurant Week and were quite pleased. After checking over the menus for the rest of the restaurants featured during this special promotion, we chose Bacchus due to the extensive selection of menu items offered. Although the portions were slightly smaller according to the server from their normal dinner menu... More

When I am in the Fan in Richmond, this is one of my top five places to eat. I like the intimate atmosphere and the neighborhood feel. The food is good and reasonably priced. I often share the entree with my dinner companion, allowing us to order some sides as well. Street parking only.

All of my friends love this place. Everything we had was delicious and the service is crazy good. This place knows what they are doing. Not a good place for large parties but is a great date spot for sure! Prices are reasonable.

On Tuesday night you wouldn't expect a crowd at a restaurant, but that's what we found. This neighborhood place is perfect for whatever you're in the mood for. We couldn't decide on what to get so we ordered a bunch of "smaller" plates. Needless to say, we still took home a LOT of leftovers. Liver pate was creamy and flavorful,... More

I went to Richmond on a business trip and was taken to this restaurant by a local. This small and eclectic establishment is simply outstanding! I knew I was in the right place when I got a whiff of the garlic and other aromas as I walked through the front door! I had the Chicken Marsala and we shared some... More

We finished dinner and weren't ready to go back to the room so wheeled in and took a chance on this place for a nightcap. Well, we liked it enough to return the next night, too. We sat at the bar and although there wasn't much of a crowd the bartenders (young woman first night night, guy second) were engaging... More

Had dinner here tonight with a group of 11. I must say, the meal was delicious. We started with cocktails and apps. We had calamari, antipasti and tomato, mozzarella and basil. There are no words. Each was dynamite. Then we ordered dinner. I had rockfish, others had oysters, salmon, soft shelled crabs, lamb sausage and steak. Not a negative word... More
