“BACCHUS IS CLOSED!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014 via mobile

I hate to inform anyone interested in Bacchus, that it is no longer in business! It was SO good! It has been replaced by Raw Sushi Bistro, which is outstanding. I will so miss that tomato soup, though!

“Missed opportunity. Great bar spoiled by terrible music and zero service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

So disappointing. Potential for a great, classy bar. Destroyed by terrible music track and service. Be prepared to have to wait. Staff does not care. Act as though they are the patrons ...visiting with local friends. Guessing they ...bartenders younger then the customers picked the music. Would be at the club up the street if i wanted to listen to this.

“A local favorite.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

Unlike Surla, whose service varies from good to indifferent, Bacchus's service is consistent. A little on the pricey end, Bacchus has a great atmosphere for initimate and group gatherings. It is a good choice for a special evening such as Valentine's Day or Birthdays. The dishes are beautifully presented.

“classy, but over rated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

It's a restaurant that could use a more personal touch. It seems as if they are attempting to be trendy and chic, but misses the mark. They price their dishes as if they are more special than they really are, but you can get more creative dishes with more layering of flavors at Surla's or Dewz. However, Bacchus is a good place to meet friends for drinks and appetizers.

“Had a Good concept, but missing the beat now”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Bacchus used to be one of our favorite restuarants. Then it closed for a remodel and reopened two months later. It sure did miss in the changes made. Prices were increased, the little special touches were cut (no grilled cheese with the soup), and most importantly, inexperienced wait staff was hired. Service real went down. For now it is off our list, maybe we will try again in a few months to see if management makes improvements.
