Food was great and reasonably priced! I enjoyed the escargot (I think that's how you spell it) very much. My family was satisfied with the portions. Dessert was great. I recommend their chocolate hazelnut cake and their molten chocolate cake. Their creme Burle was solid. Nice ambience, nice service, good food and reasonably priced. I can't complain at all.

My family had a very good meal here prior to a game. The service was very good. The ambiance was nice. The food was very good. It was fresh, hot, and delicious. The portions were very generous as well. The muscles were excellent. The salads were huge and tasty. The hanger steak was superb as was the tuna. The mousse... More

This moderately priced eatery (by NYC standards), offers well prepared food. Reservations do not hurt.

Went to Bacchus Saturday night with a group of 6. Seated promptly although we were a bit late due to downpour. Nice looking restaurant. Pretty crowded. Has an outdoor area that is probably nice in the summer months. A few of us had wine by the glass...nice selection of reds and whites. I had French onion soup which was very... More

We got off the plane from Paris, took a nap, and met family here for dinner. We laughed upon realizing the place heavily features French food, but, what the hell. The mussels were fat and juicy, the duck confit frisee salad was a minor revelation. Our server was attentive and warm. My frugal wife spent more ($49) than she usually... More

We sat outside which was a lovely setting for this somewhat expensive restaurant..However, the food, service, wine and setting fitted the bill exactly. It is fairly pricey, but hey, that's New York and we were not disappointed one little bit.

Remember the slogan, Where's the Beef? Well, if you order the brandade or the crab cake at Bacchus you'll wonder Where's the Fish. In the brandade, a classic dish with cod and mashed potatoes, the cod had gone AWOL. The crab cake, usually lots of crab held together by as little bread as possible, was mush and mostly sans crab.... More

I love this local gem. Once a week they serve all you can eat mussels. Their specials are always wonderful. The service is warm and gracious and there is a huge assortment of French wines to choose from.

We were visiting our daughter-in-law and her husband in Brooklyn and we went to Bacchus after we couldn't get in to Battersby. They had been there before and enjoyed it. We had a very pleasant meal. The wine list was excellent and very French. I ordered a Chateau Teynac 2009 which was perfect. We started with a good bread and... More
