This is a superior restaurant that usually performs but some dishes, like the pizza, leave a lot to be desired.

We were a table of 20 and the service was good but my plate was cold and nothing espectacular. Nice decoration, good drinks but insist, the kitchen is not outstanding I say is average.

I enjoyed this experience very much and would definitely come back again. The food was exceptional. I particularly enjoyed the creamy mushroom soup, the chicken parmigiana, and the sorbets.

The place is nice but really expensive. The food no so good. I would recommend it for dinner because it is beautiful at night. Fish is a great option, the risottos are not so good. It is a beautiful place but be careful about prices.......

I will continue to view Bacchus as a highlight of my trips to San Jose as it never disappoints. The service is exceptional - attentive, but non obtrusive and the food quality is excellent. Extensive wine list too!

One of the best dinners I have had. Service, atmosphere and cuisine was excellent. I had the Ossobuco and it was so tender. For an appetizer, the tuna tartar was delicious. Great wine selection as well. You must visit!

Bacchus offers a friendly, cosy atmosphere combined with excellent food. The capelletti filled with goat cheese is an outstanding dish and one of my favorites. The truffled mushroom risotto is simply perfect. The menu offers a wide arrange of plates. I have come to Bacchus many times and have never been disappointed. The quality of food and service is excellent... More
