Nestled in Vancouver's only Relais and Chateaux property, the Bacchus Restaurant and Lounge compliments the luxurious Wedgewood Hotel & Spa's reputation for excellence.

As you walk into the restaurant, its attention to detail is immediately apparent. You are instantly surrounded by luxury, with richly upholstered furniture, dark wood, and light fixtures personally imported from Venice by founder Eleni Skalbania. These impressive features extend the hotel's brand of elegance. A large canvas depicting Bacchus himself, Greek god of wine and revelry, presides over the room.

Its talented culinary team offers modern French cuisine featuring fresh, West Coast ingredients. A great place to enjoy a truly gourmet, fine dining experience accompanied by live entertainment nightly.

The ambience is very nice. Live music is a good addition. Service is very good. Food is moderate, nothing special.

Old world elegance and charm.
This is a restaurant that hearkens back to old world dark woods and heavy drapery. The staff presents an air of formality. The food was spectacular with great portion sizes - by that I mean they are something that a normal person could eat without feeling absolutely stuffed.
We started with an amazing crab with yellow beet borscht appetizer. Superbly prepared and presented. The fresh halibut was expertly prepared. The tenderloin with short rib came with very interesting layered potato side (kind of like scalloped potatoes) perfectly cooked. Super tasty sauce on the short rib. Our desserts (sorbet) we likewise nicely portioned scoops (3) and very well made.
The live piano music in the background is a very nice romantic touch for the evening.

Excellent. And they were able to accomodate one person's severe lactose intolerance without batting an eye. Be aware that it can be slow - 2.5 hours without dessert for us - but the food was all spectacular. It's pricey, but in keeping with what you get. Will be back.

This started off great and after an incredibly long wait for a sandwich and an individual pizza, ended on a sour note. We arrived at 515 and waited 50 minutes. We were told that the pizza was cooked incorrectly and so they recooked it hence the wait, however 2 simple items should not have taken this long to prepare.
Strangely, no one else on the lounge side was eating and once we were served we then noticed many other dishes coming out. Not entirely sure if there was a correlation or not. Just very odd.
The energy inside was very nice though, very urban and the live pianist was good.
Our server was pleasant enough but there was zero service recovery on the ridiculous wait time.
This was a first for us. What a terrible first impression.

If you want elegant calm and quiet go dining room... if you ambiance and awesomeness stay in the lounge! The fireplace and piano player were way too cool and we only got to experience this on our way out from dining room!

We got an outstanding service from a lady who's name I did not get but I know she was originally from Turkey and we chatted a little bit about that. She was attentive, prompt with her service with pleasant conversation.

I also liked the convenience of the valley parking and the relaxed atmosphere of the restaurant. The halibut was very tasty too!

Staff at all level were professional and accommodating, from Maitre d' to lounge server, to floor manager, to our wonderful waiter. The dining room retains the old Parisian bistro charm, without looking/feeling dated. Food flavor is innovative yet maintains the element of french cuisine.

We enjoyed the food from the Dine Out Vancouver menu with wine pairings Food was amazing; service was impeccable. Definitely a place I'd return to again Just would say - there should have been a wine pairing for the dessert. We had the Wedgewood Chocolate bar for dessert - a nice rich port would have ended the meal perfectly.
