I ran a meetup dining group. We visited more than 50 restaurants in Bklyn over a two-year period. My core members and I rated this one in the top 5 of the restaurants we visited. I was surprised to see negative reviews. The food and service has always been great. Even though I don't run the meetup anymore, I still eat at this restaurant regularly.

Loved the service, great personnel but the food was below average.

I hate to write reviews like this but an experience like last night makes me want to warn other restaurant goers. Our party of 4 arrived for our 7pm reservation on time. We waited an additional 30 minutes--the bartender was very nice to us. The reason we had to wait was there were 2 HUGE groups of people in the back and our table of 4 was occupied by people going to an 8pm show at BAM, who decided to take their time to leave. Now none of this is the restaurant's fault. What they should have done though, is foreseen that these large parties might be loud, suggest we wait for a table in the front and seat us immediately. Instead they sat us in the back with both loud crowds screaming 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY' and flashing cameras. I couldn't even hear the waitress ask which kind of water we wanted. After 45 minutes, of waiting in this loud uncomfortable space we had to leave. I'm sure the food is delicious--I could smell every dish as they passed by the bar. The bartender was kind enough to comp our drinks that we had while we waited so I don't doubt the rest of the service people are friendly. I'm sincerely hope that this was a fluke but if want something relaxed, delicious and attentive service, go next door to Rothchild's.

My boyfriend and I made the best choice ever tonight and that was to stop here. It has the best food, good prices and the waiter was so nice and respectful. I love this place and I would recommend this to anyone who's looking for a romantic but affordable evening . I LOVE IT

I was a little wary of going to Bacchus after reading some of the reviews, but we had a very good meal. They may have hired a new chef and new servers in the last six months. Our waitress was friendly, knowledgeable and very sweet. The escargot were surprisingly good for a Brooklyn restaurant. The hanger steak was cooked perfectly and came with a nice mushroom sauce (though a little too creamy). The mussels were yummy and the tarte tatin was a perfect note to end on. Pre fixe for $25 is a good deal. Wines left a little to be desired, but they were decently priced. Will be back!

The poorest lamb shank in my life, ordinarily you'd have had to pay me to eat it, thickly charred, dry tough. Would have sent it back, but it was not diplomatic given the company I was with. The others all left most of their food. I can only assume it was the chef's night off and the dish-cleaner, or some such had taken over the cooking.

I went there last night for my husband's birthday. The decor was nice - low lights, good music. The service was pretty good (they gave us a round of champagne for free since we were celebrating). We had the duck sprong rolls as an appetizer- good amount of meat but not enough flavor. My chicken special was ok and his lamd was very tender but underseasoned. Dessert (chocolate cake) was very good. We will go back and give it another chance
