“Established Atlantic Street Bistro”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

Relaxed place to stop for lunch while walking or shopping the Altantic corridor. We had the lunch special of salmon and the salade Nicoise. Fresh bread, very good food and pleasant server. There are several restaurants in a row that seem connected so always choices. Staff speaks French and that can be a bonus to tired translated brains! Front table gives a busy street view, back tables, the garden.

“Barclay Center Close”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We were running late to the Rolling Stones concert at Barclay Center and needed a quick bite. Our dirve, a Brooklynite, suggested Bacchus. The dining room and adjoining pastry shop were very Parisian Bistro-like, which is a good thinkg. The servers were efficient and friendly. The wine list has a lot of older wines that I would not recommend as they are not the Bordeaux and Burgundys that can stand up to aging. Order one the few newer vintages. The cheese platter was very nice, but ask for a side of honey. The escargot was fairly average. The steaks, while not steak house quality, fit the bill for something fast and on the way. All in all, I don't think my group was very impressed with the food, but the server did everything possible to accommodate our tight schedule. I also think that everyone was worried about timing and that may have played a factor in our ability to enjoy the meal.

Bacchus deserves another chance and I would try it again.

Ideal for lunch

“Not good place.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

Very poor. Interior old and look groomed , music too laud. Service is OK. Food is not good .First is half of small menu is not available and that is Friday night. From what we order:

Tapas Tasting Selection instead Serrano Ham was something cheap one.
Escargots was clear from cans and not cooked in butter just plated and watered from the top
Onion soup was too sweet. Sweetness obviously been from sugar, but was eatable.
Hanger stake was OK, but it’s too simple that would spoil.
Pork belly did not have any taste, just soft meet over the garnish.
Pêche Melba ??? “Poached peach” – maybe it’s new to poached inside the cans.
I will not recommend going here.

“Try the Bacchus cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

Cute new little cafe next to the established Bacchus restaurant. Lovely French server was very friendly and offered my friend and I a free taste of the little 'chouxquettes' which I thoroughly recommend. Nice pastries on offer, as well as cooked breakfast. Coffee was good but chai tea was a little weak - I'm sure they will try and make it stronger if you asked!
