Food, service and ambience were excellent at Bacchus. Wait staff attentive, but not overwhelming. Huge wine list with many great selections. The food was outstanding -- very nice presentation and portions were not oversized as in so many restaurants. Our waiter even recommended a good frozen yogurt place when we declined dessert, explaining that we were craving froyo.

We had the tuna tartare, veal chop and lamb chops. All were cooked fabulously. Our service was outstanding. We were disappointed with the corkage fee that was applied to our bill, which was double of what we found on the Internet. When we showed the manager what we found for pricing, she wasn't overly aggressively in wanting to make any pricing changes. She did eventually remove one of the charges wich was appreciated.

Like most of the Bartolotta ventures, their food and drink are overrated. The service here left much to be desired with wait staff behaving with unwarranted hauteur!

I dined with three other business associates and the food and wine was excellent. So why did I rate this the restaurant only as very good...... simply the place was just too much for me personally. The dining room was large, the wine list lengthy, the explanations by the server were long, prices high.....

However, I really liked the menu, the quality and the presentation of the food was great.

I am still thinking about my veal chop. It was thick, it was tender, I can't really get over it. It is not so much what they did to it, it was the quality of the chop itself. Obviously they knew what they were doing when they sourced this vendor. We ate at several of the restaurants over the weekend, and they know how to buy ingredients.
