We had a family event here on Saturday with 13 people and everyone was impressed with the quality of the food and the service. Having that many folks all pleased with their various meals is a major accomplishment in itself and I feel that the staff all did a fantastic job!!! We are so happy we chose to celebrate here.. Could not have asked for a better evening. Everything from the arrangement of the tables into one long table in the one room to the attention from the staff during dinner was perfect. We will certainly return to eat and celebrate again in the future when we are in Morgantown. So nice to have a quality restaurant in town owned and operated by local folks!

Down the street from the coffee shops, hookah cafes, bars and take out places frequented by WVU students is this gem of a restaurant. An upscale experience in this old home that was converted into a restaurant a number of years ago. The menu is somewhat limited, but an array of interesting dishes including Moroccan lamb shank and Seared Maine Diver Scallops in a champagne citrus beurre blanc are offered. A number of steaks and always a fish special are also on the menu. Try the Goat Cheese topped with Apples and Walnuts baked in Filo Pastry appetizer. Meals priced between 25-35 dollars. They have a full bar and Martinis and wine reasonably priced. Both service and presentation were quite good.

A grand brick house converted into a beautiful, quaint restaurant with incredible talent in the kitchen! Upon arrival the hostess greeted us and showed us to our table, we had our choice of room we wanted to dine in, one was a small room with a bar and the other a quaint little room with four tables and a fireplace. We took our table in the corner with a window to look out in the quaint room. We were given a bit of the history of the home, which is incredibly interesting! The man who used to live here died on the Titanic. The hostess even brought a book over for us to look through which told the story of his honeymoon and voyage on the Titanic. This added so much to our evening! Take a moment to pause and think about the history that surrounds you. okay, back to the food. We started our meal with a foccacia type bread. It was light, airy with a good texture and a delicous salty, buttery crunchy crust. we moved onto the goat cheese baked with walnuts and apples wrapped in phyllo pastry. This was good! our entrees were fantastic! Although I wanted to sample everything on the menu I chose the braised lamb shank with moraccan spices and Isreali couscous. The blending of the spices was excellent, very tasty dish. My husband had the 21 oz steak with blue cheese and shallot butter. It was excellent, tender and perfectly cooked. The desserts are equally delicious so be sure to loosen the pants! the cheesecake was awesome and different with a walnut crust! the apple butter ice cream with the bacon sprinkles was warming with a mix of delicious spice. I am already looking forward to our next visit! If you are looking for a fast meal, you will have to go elsewhere...part of the charm of this restaurant is the pace. Don't rush this meal. Sit enjoy, drink, imagine what life was like in this house when it was new. There is plenty of parking in the back of the restaurant and a few metered parking spots in the front. Make reservations to ensure there is a table. I really enjoyed our dining experience at Cafe Bacchus, and will return, but I feel I must be honest about my observations regarding the decor. There are some areas of the house that could benefit from a little TLC. peeling paint, bold colors on the walls, ect. But it certainly does not take away from the incredible food and service!

History of former residents give pause to reflect on the passing of time and the theory of "life as a kaleidoscope"

We had a large party of sixteen. One of the few restaurants in the area that can bill four or five couples separately. We had a variety of dinners and everyone was pleased.
