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

Since our daughters have moved to the capitol city we have enjoyed trying the wonderful variety of good restaurants. Bacchus continues to be at the top of our list. You can go as simple as pasta (your choice) with butter and oil. Or choose from a number of full entrees. Simple bar type atmosphere, great service, and reasonable prices. We... More

While the escargo is the best ever, the pasta is simply too good to be true. And you can't finish it. My favorite is the Kobe meat ball pasta. And add the Gorgonzola polenta to the meal.

Four of us had scallops, veal piccata, and fried oysters, along with sides of broccolini, brussel sprouts, spinach salad and baked artichokes. It was an absolutely delicious meal, and I'll remember it for a while because my clothes still smell like garlic--one of the signs of a great meal! Service is good, seating is comfortable, and it's noisy. We had... More

Very wonderful atmosphere with a very good vibe. The service was great. We went with another couple who were regulars so they assisted with the selections. Well, I am not sure if I mean selections or the fact that it is like large portion tapas. Order an appetizer or two and share, then a main entire or pasta, vegetable dishes... More

My wife and I were visiting from out of town and went here for dinner on Sunday evening January 10, 2016 with another couple who lives nearby and comes here all the time. This was both my wife and mine first visit and it was very good. The location is easy to get to and there are normally open parking... More

We've been going to Bacchus for years when we lived in Richmond. Now that we live abroad, I still make it a point to come back. Very cozy place with friendly service and great food. Plenty of vegetarian options, whether you're craving the pasta or the vegetable dishes. My favorites are the brocollini, whole roasted Cremini mushrooms and cauliflower side... More

Four of us ate dinner here after a day of sightseeing in richmond. Great veal, duck and seafood; very generous portions ( don't over-order). The server and kitchen accommodated a mushroom allergy very graciously.
