This was our second visit, and while it was still quite good, it didn't live up to our first time there. The service was good, and though the food was good too, it seems to have lost a step in refinement. The bisque was delicious, the potato skins were tasty and the foie gras was good too. The mac and... More

We went on a very busy night. Waited a few minutes before being seated. The service and food was very good. I highly recomment this restaurant.

So many delicious dishes at the restaurant, it's perfect for a light bite or a complete meal. Plates are sophisticated by not precious, and everything we ordered was perfectly prepared. Very reasonable drinks and wine list, too. Located in theater district so perfect for dinner before the show, though we liked it so much we returned other times while visiting... More

We were thrilled we chose Bacchus to celebrate a friends birthday. We were greeted promptly and loved the atmosphere of the restaurant. It was warm and the staff friendly and very knowledgeable. We each enjoyed our appetizers and began our meal with delicious flavours. The soup was a big hit along with the beet salad & scallops. Our mains were... More

I went here with my husband as I love wine and he figured this would be a hit. It was amazing. The food, the wine, and the service. It's definitely not a cheap night out but it is so worth it. Can't wait to go back!

We had some appetizers, some wine and some delicious main courses. The service was not too fast and we enjoyed a nice evening. Classic food with a twist.

We found this place online looking for great Buffalo restaurants. We were NOT disappointed. Although they are not on the Waze App we found them via their address. Place is large but quaint. As we pulled up there is free valet parking (a VERY nice touch in a large city like Buffalo). Started out with the Beef Carpaccio - very... More

I had stopped here in June 2016 and loved the service and food. Sat at the bar. The bar tender (lovely woman who was so helpful and clearly enjoyed her position) Was so impressed I decided to come back and bring my boss last week as we were considering renting out the adjoining room for a business event. We sat... More

From the friendly and hard working staff to the food Bacchus was excellent last night. It's a 1 minute walk from the 10 day old Westin that just opened up. We had many dishes and each one was excellent: complimentary olive oil, garlic and parsley with the olive bread was a hit for us. We also had the gorgonzola ribeye,... More
