I love coming here because the have flights of wine and delightful selection of light eats. The cheese board selection is crazy good. My server is quite entertaining.

1st time visiting, wine selections are good for OC, staff knowlegeable & atmosphere is lovely. We ordered what I think was the flat bread with ricotta, arugula & grilled grapes. It was beyond not good. I would have complained but was on a first date. I was having a nice time, wine was good & service was great so hesitant... More

I've been coming to Bacchus for a few months now and just or round to writing this review. I love this place, it's one of my favorite places to go at the weekend and it's one of the few bars in Irvine. The services is great, all the staff are friendly and happy to help choose a beer or wine.... More

Shredded Beef Tacos work well with the pickled red onion and spicy jalapeno flavor. The beef needs to be seasoned a bit more to bring out the natural beef flavor. Rating: 2.8/5 Carnitas Tacos have a great flavor with porky goodness shining through. The cojita cheese matches well with a salty cheese flavor. Rating: 4.3/5 Fish Tacos has a generous... More

I've been a few times this year when in the area. A few of the reviews from 2013 mentioned poor service, but it's always been good when I've been there (note that I've only sat at the bar). There are 30-40 wines available by the glass so you'll probably be able to find something for your palate. The food is... More

Went in for lunch today with my wife. We were first customers of the day. After ordering, the food (2 burgers) took about 40 minutes to come out of the kitchen. My lamb burger was even raw in the middle. We asked the server (from the kitchen) for a to go box which never came. During this lunch period with... More

This was a great place to get away from the usual crowds at lunch. It was quiet and a great atmosphere that you wouldn't normally expect to get during lunch hour. We had juicy burgers with a hint of blue cheese that were a step above. The waitress helped us pick out some new beers to enjoy with it and... More

The wine choices are excellent and second to none. But some may not know that there is a great choice craft beers on tap and in bottle as well!
