My wife and I dined at Bacchus for father's day on our first evening while touring Buffalo, Niagara and environs. We had an enjoyable meal. First, parking is free - just pull up to the curb and you car will be valet parked, something we appreciated as being from out of town. The restaurant offers comfortable ambiance, and the service...

This is a lovely restaurant with a good variety on the menu. I ordered pork tenderloin from the daily specials menu. It was delicious but HUGE. So huge that the waiter came out and apologized that they normally serve half a tenderloin per customer but they had accidentally served me an entire, whole tenderloin that could've fed a family of...

Great atmosphere...a large room. Wait staff was attentive without hovering. Great wine list Excellent suggestions from server. If possible go on "movie night" during the good weather. Valet parking available(call to make sure). The lot across the street is highway robbery...$10.00!!

I should have titled this "small plates, not so small-scale, but very delicious." The small plates were a little bigger than expected, but I'm not complaining. In stead of ordering 4 we should have stuck with three. Very comfortable atmosphere, with friendly, attentive wait staff. If you want to share plates and get close to your date, this is the... More

Wife and I were in Buffalo for the NHL draft and went to Bacchus based on Trip Advisor recommendations. Top to bottom great experience. Outstanding wine list and very reasonably priced. Eclectic menu with perfect portion sizes and really impressive favors. Wife had the beet salad and asparagus ravioli and both were, according to her, "heavenly!" The ravioli were heavy... More

We liked the atmosphere and the dining room at Bacchus, most of the table were occupied and we decided to have dinner there. We ordered a bottle of wine and it was good, but the mussels were overcooked and tough, the lobster crepe was without any identifiable taste. We were expecting better fare for the price. We should have gone... More

We visited Bacchus on a Wednesday evening recently to celebrate our anniversary. It's located in the heart of downtown in a beautiful old building but the restaurant is very modern inside. We arrived a bit early for our reservation but the restaurant was not busy at the time (filled up quite a bit while we were there) and were seated... More
