My family enjoyed a marvelous dinner at Bacchanale over the holidays. All 6 of us were pleased with our meals, including my picky vegetarian husband! Very sweet and helpful server, extremely knowledgeable on the wine selections and attentive to all of our needs. Highly recommended!

Poor service, a less-than-ideal atmosphere, and --- of course --- really awful food: any of the three can be excused when the other two factors are there and in check. But all three? Yep, you found in in Bacchanale. Please know, we are locals and...More

We went on Christmas Eve, so it was a little busy and the service was a little slow, but the great atmosphere and good wine made it much better. The flatbread alone is worth the trip, especially with the wild boar sausage. The food is...More

We love Crested Butte in the off season. The between season when most of the stuff is closed and most of the people are gone. This is one of my favorite restaurants to visit in Crested Butte, not the fanciest place. But good solid food...More

We were greeted by a friendly matre'd and had excellent service. The Fava bean bruschetta was a novelty--the way it is served in a jar--and tasty as well, although the tapenade was a bit oily. From there it went downhill. Salad was made with fresh...More

The all-new Bacchanale is a modest Italian restaurant from the team that launched django’s restaurant at the base of Mt. Crested Butte in 2008. Our fresh and light menu will re-introduce you to simple flavors, colorful salads, artisan flatbreads and handmade specialties. Our comfortable atmosphere will entice you to come every day. Join us nightly for dinner from 5-10pm, and pick your favorite spot: at the bar, the community tables, along the banquette benches, in our private dining rooms, or on the balcony overlooking it all. During the summer, bistro seating on Elk Avenue let's you watch the action, enjoy the sunshine and surf the web, all while enjoying a Campari & soda. At 7am every morning, we're up again to serve you organic coffee, fresh house-made pastries, and specialty breakfast items.
