Provided our group of 6 with a quiet table in otherwise happily bustling bistro. My snails appetizer and cassoulet main were superb, with cassoulet a real standout among many ordered at NYC restaurants. Knowledgeable, welcoming, and responsive staff rounded out a memorable 3 hour meal...More

Had dinner with friends who love this place. I was not disappointed. The atmosphere was cozy but just what you're looking for when dining in Brooklyn. The food was delicious and the service was good. I will return.

Bacchus has been our go-to date night spot for years! The food, service and ambiance is consistently excellent. The garden is gorgeous and romantic and the wine bar is perfect for a private party. I highly recommend Bacchus for any occasion!

The restaurant has a cosy and welcoming atmosphere (except for the loud music). The wine, salads and soup were excellent. However, both fish dishes were oversalted. The desserts were underwhelming--especially the floating island.

Last night we returned footsore and weary after a busy day exploring New York City, really too tired to be bothered with a fancy restaurant. Then we found Bacchus. We were welcomed into a cocoon of warmth and real French comfort food. Even the wine...More
