My husband and I dined at Bacchus last night for the first time. It was definately an experience we will not forget. From the moment we called for directions, to the moment we left was excellent. The restaurant has a wonderfully romantic ambiance, with a waitstaff that opens their arms for you!!! We highly recommend Bacchus!!!
