I went here with my husband as I love wine and he figured this would be a hit. It was amazing. The food, the wine, and the service. It's definitely not a cheap night out but it is so worth it. Can't wait to go back!

We had some appetizers, some wine and some delicious main courses. The service was not too fast and we enjoyed a nice evening. Classic food with a twist.

We found this place online looking for great Buffalo restaurants. We were NOT disappointed. Although they are not on the Waze App we found them via their address. Place is large but quaint. As we pulled up there is free valet parking (a VERY nice touch in a large city like Buffalo). Started out with the Beef Carpaccio - very... More

I had stopped here in June 2016 and loved the service and food. Sat at the bar. The bar tender (lovely woman who was so helpful and clearly enjoyed her position) Was so impressed I decided to come back and bring my boss last week as we were considering renting out the adjoining room for a business event. We sat... More

From the friendly and hard working staff to the food Bacchus was excellent last night. It's a 1 minute walk from the 10 day old Westin that just opened up. We had many dishes and each one was excellent: complimentary olive oil, garlic and parsley with the olive bread was a hit for us. We also had the gorgonzola ribeye,... More

The restaurant was a decent set up with and outdoor patio as well. Our waiter was kind of slow and not terribly knowledgeable but OK. The food was OK with the appetizers that were better than average and the wine list was solid but again our waiter knew almost nothing about it.

For starters- Wedge salad... Strong super tangy dressing... but generous bacon chunks and tomatoes plus a crunchy fresh wedge. For my taste...cut back on the sourness.. vinegar? The swordfish dish was plentiful with nice accoutrements but lacked the necessary pizzazz. Nice wines accommodating staff but not worthy of a five star experience.

I suggest you come to Buffalo to eat in this restaurant. The service was excellent and the food was the best I had eaten by far. I am a foodie and this is wonderful food. Thank you so much for a great last night in Buffalo. Now flying back to New York City to sample awful food again!

Thank Suzanne88823
