The atmosphere was lovely and romantic, the food was very good, but the service was without panache. My expectations for a restaurant of this caliber is that the server would have some passion for the job they are doing. I had to ask about the...wine pairings we were being served. We were the courses were given but little information about what they were, no information about any of the wines except the name and on 2 occasions those were not known. It wasn’t that the service was terrible - it was just without luster. It made me realize what a difference great service makes. Sending a shout out to the servers that put in the extra work to know their work.More

Very good Christmas brunch except my cheese plate for dessert was dry and had obviously been prepared well in advance. I couldn't finish it as the cheese was dried out. The server mixed up our starter orders and when we pointed out the cheese issue...she said "sorry" without any offer to fix it. Very disappointing. We did enjoy another evening there for drinks and snacks as we were staying in the hotel and had a much better experience. Especially enjoyed the live piano.More

The Bacchus architecture, ambience, and staff are out of this world. And this comment is from a person who typically dislikes wood paneling, dark furniture, and old-style architecture. Somehow, the proportions of the room, the flower piece, the windows, and the lighting, turn this place...into one of the classiest bars to which I have been coming back to now for almost 30 years.More

We dined at Bacchus as part of the Wedgewood’s “elopement package.” The package included dinner for two, but we ended up with a party of 8 and paid standard meal rates; however, Stacey, our primary contact, performed yeoman’s duty and ensured we were able to...dine privately in Bacchus’ library room. Bacchus Restaurant is already a luxurious space, but dining privately – in a room with beautiful wood details in warm and dark tones – adds another level of beautiful complexity and elegance to one’s overall experience. I won’t go into detail about what our party ordered – a number of starters and literally everything from the Entrees section – but I will say that Executive Chef Montgomery Lau, formerly of Market by Jean-Georges and Diva at the Met fame, clearly demonstrated how and why he’s one of Vancouver’s top chefs. Each dish that was ordered, from the Maple Ginger Butternut Squash Soup to the Sablefish Poached in Citron Tarragon Butter, was simple in its plating but the flavours were deceptively complex. Consider the aforementioned sablefish, for example. This fish is naturally rich, but Chef Lau knows how to balance that richness with other flavours on the plate. The accompanying carrot ginger puree plays well with the fish and offers a slightly sweet counterbalance. Really, Bacchus, thanks to Lau, is a tour de force in West Coast and European flavours. Of course, an outstanding meal is only part of the experience. Service throughout was absolutely impeccable. Our server – I unfortunately forget his name – was perfect. He checked on us regularly and offered the right balance of professionalism with good humour! In a word, he struck us as genuine – someone who cares about the guest experience. Bravo! FOOD: 5/5 SERVICE: 5/5 VALUE: 5/5 RECOMMENDATION: Bacchus has been open for 37 years and it’s easy to see why. The atmosphere exudes luxury; the food is phenomenal; and the service exemplary. We were made to feel like VIPs and this made our special day all the more significant. Thank you! Very highly recommended!

Not formally, but this is a place where you can dress up and not feel out of place. I think one of the reasons we got such good service was because we were dressed nicely - a suit for me and a nice dress for my wife.
