This place has always been reliable and high quality, but this last time it was really quite awesome. I don’t know what has happened in the kitchen, but it’s all good, and even better than before. I will continue to come.

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. This is our second year at Bacchus as a group to enjoy the Season. The decorations and ambience is always lovely at Christmas time. It makes for a special visit.

Wonderful dining experience. Scott was fantastic, professional yet friendly. The noise from the bar was too loud for the first half hour!

I have been coming here for years and appreciate the consistent quality, the lovely room with the wonderful attached lounge, the live piano music, and, above all, the attentive service. For me, its the perfect spot for a drink with a friend (new or old) or a charming dinner. (Hint: don't sit near the piano if you are in the mood for conversation). The food is more traditional than cutting edge, but it is always prepared with care and attention to the last detail. I hope to dine here for the next 20 years. I thought the mignonette for the kushi oysters was a bit overpowering, but the sablefish could not have been better.

For a top tier place our Server was not experienced nor polished, nor were we given great seating. The food itself was average, but great ambience

Going into the dining room one is always assured of a welcome. The gorgeous floral displays and the fire make such elegant coziness. The serving staff are knowledgable and pleasant without being obsequious. the food is somewhat traditional but well plated and presented. It's an excellent place for birthdays and celebrations.

Room was way overheated and uncomfortable. It truncated our luncheon.
There was also a really nasty odor of less than fresh fish that came into my awareness during the meal.
On the plus side, the waiter was every bit the professional and helped alleviate a less than perfect experience. And , to be fair, both my guest and I enjoyed more than acceptable food.
I will say, I have eaten here before and found the room too hot, but bad food odors is a first and hopefully only experience. I won’t abandon an established food luncheon spot for one bad experience

Amazing evening out to dinner for our anniversary. The staff was attentive and not intrusive. The food was phenomenal. Wonderfully attentive to my food allergy. The beef tenderloin melted in your mouth, we could not have asked for a better evening.

I checked out the menu before booking and it looked acceptable but when we arrive we were seated in the”restaurant “side of the setting and the menu is totally different and MUCH more expensive than the menu upon which we made our selection!!!The bistro obviously is less $ but the website does not point this out.The piano would have been enjoyable but was way too loud for dinner background music.

We were first offered a low chair and sofa by the fireplace. My guest declined then we were seated in two low chairs still in the ante room. Just on the other side of a pillar we’re tables with tablecloths and proper dining chairs. I made a reservation and expected to dine in the dining room. Disappointing..

What a beautiful peaceful setting for elegant dining. This was fine dining at its best. The elegance of sitting in the lounge chairs while enjoying a lovely meal with a stunning bottle of wine was an absolute pleasure to take in.

I have a longer way to going to the Wedgewood hotel for dinner and Bacchus restaurant did not disappoint.

The quality of the food was outstanding. We ordered sablefish with a maple glaze and lamb ribs. One of the best dishes I’ve ever experienced.

First time here. It’s got more of a traditional/European feel to this restaurant which we enjoyed. We enjoyed the food, it didn’t knock our socks off but it was good and we would revisit. We thought the service was excellent. They were attentive and friendly without over doing it.

Was a wonderful evening. Dominique our server was very attentive. The food and portions were very good. Excellent piano music accompanied our meal. And the chef made a different dessert for us as we were allergic to the pumpkin pie. Approximately $400 including tip was well worth the evening.

I wanted to show my wife the level of service and expertise that some people take for granted. We arrived a tad early, and it only took a few moments to have our table ready. Any preset details I had requested... which without question they accommodated, were handled smoothly and without any fuss, yet was delivered characteristically charmingly. I'm afraid to say that we enjoyed a Tapas style dinner sharing some of the chefs appetizers, and sipping prosecco, as we had an engagement later in the evening. After three shared appetizers, the quality of the service, not to mention the kitchen, was abundantly clear. Past reviews have marked this establishment as pricy. I would happily tender that here, you get what you pay for! ...And I would like to thank the staff for a wonderful evening. I look forward to joining you again in the future.

The restaurant has a cosy, friendly atmosphere and the ambience is superb. There is piano music all through the dinner. Our waiter Scott recommended us a few dishes and all four of us were happy with our choice. The duck especially was very tender and the portion was very generous. The fish dishes were fresh and not over cooked. It was a fantastic dining experience, especially since two of our guests have not been to the restaurant before.
