Second experience here. That's what it is, an experience. A long evening of beautiful and delicious food, excellent service, and great drinks. Dinner here is always something to be remembered and talked about long after the night.

As an Atlanta native, I've heard about Bacchanalia for years. I've always wanted to try it, but was always hesitant because I was worried the experience wouldn't live up the hype. Well, for my grandmother's 80th birthday, I finally decided to try it. I'm so, so, SO happy I did. It didn't just live up to my lofty expectations, it surpassed them. Bacchanalia is one of my top two all-time favorite dining experiences, and my far and away Atlanta favorite. This restaurant is a sure fire home run for any special occasion. The creativity and ambiance will blow you away! Love, love, LOVE!!!!

Great food, service, and ambiance. A little hard to find but it is a nice cozy place after discovery. Prix Four but really, you have food at your table non-stop compliments of the chef. Great place for an anniversary or even to propose to your very special person. I will always remember that night.

Our first time here, and did not disappoint. Elegant dining atmosphere, but not pretentious. Lots of choices available on a prix fixe menu that allows you to customize your dinner experience, even if you're on a specific diet. Each course was rather tiny, but it all added up so that by the end, we were quite stuffed, surprisingly. And the food was sublime. Certainly not inexpensive (for the 2 of us it was about $300 with wine and tip), but for a very special occasion, I would highly recommend it.

Bacchanialia was the highlight of our recent trip to Atlanta. The setting is lovely; the service impeccable. The food is impressive, delicious, and very much worth the price. The prix fixe menu offers a wide range of flavors and textures, allowing the opportunity for a couple or small group to sample the best of fine dining. An incredible dining experience. So memorable!

Impeccable service and presentation. I have worked for two James Beard award winning chefs and know the quality of a dining experience. This was my third visit and I am impressed with their consistency and knowledge. Do yourself a favor and enjoy!

Overall it was the 5 star experience we expected. Very little to criticize. Veal sweetbreads were by far the best course. Crab fritter was solid as well. Only real downer were the chairs-not very comfortable. Price tag also hurt a little, but definitely worth it.

Outstanding food and a unique location make this restaurant an upscale winner. The multi-course menu gives you the chance to try many amazing flavors. Wonderful wine list with a solid Sommelier. Our server was a little bit aloof, but the overall team was efficient. This is a special and somewhat expensive dinner out in a great part of Mid-Town. If rushed, eat at the fast and friendly bar. Great drinks and wine, cool upscale store in front.

Bacchanalia is the best. The food speaks for itself. The staff is well informed and incredibly welcoming. Bacchanalia offers the best of fine dining, without an unnecessarily pretentious atmosphere. There is no other place in Atlanta that I would want to celebrate a special occasion.

Outstanding items were the crab fritter, the lobster w/ tarragon cream, the red snapper and best of all, the desserts! I'm starting to drool thinking of the perfect-in-every-way apple souffle with butterscotch ice cream and the churros with the cardomom flavor. Service was delightful as always. A lovely evening!

Everything about our experience at Bacchanalia was exceptional. Our server, Leigh was knowledgable, friendly and appropriately attentive. The food was amazing, fresh, delicious and innovative. We had a corner table, as we requested that was quiet and cozy. It was the perfect dinner experience!

We were quite excited to go to this restaurant after seeing many good reviews. The décor was lovely, the wait staff was excellent and the sommelier was extremely knowledgeable. The food was well prepared and artistically presented. HOWEVER - we were still hungry when we walked out the door to go home. The portions are not just small, they are tiny. This is a wonderful approach to a meal if there are six or maybe seven little courses but four just simply was not enough food - and we are small people.

Phenomenal. My husband and I went to celebrate a birthday and Bacchanalia did not disappoint. The food was incredible but the ambience was great, too. I have felt stuffy/pretentious at other quality restaurants in town but not here. Even though we were getting exceptional food and service, we still felt comfortable and at ease. We had oysters to start--can't go wrong with raw oysters. The prix fixe meal has you choosing one starter, one entree, one cheese selection, and a dessert. I had the crab fritter, the lamb, the goat cheese, and the chocolate cake. My husband had the sweetbreads, the duck, the taleggio, and the cheesecake. The sweetbreads were incredibly rich, not really my thing, but the crab was perfect. The rest of the meal was also delicious. We chose to do the wine pairings suggested and it all went together nicely. We'll definitely be back.

Always a pleasure. We were celebrating an anniversary and Bacchanalia did not disappoint. Amazing service, beautiful food and we really enjoyed the little "gifts" sent out from the kitchen between courses.The restaurant was pretty and quiet (nice to be able to have a conversation) . I would definitely recommend for a special night out.

This isn't called the nicest restaurant in the city for no reason. The tables were spread out, the service was impeccable, and I didn't feel out of place even though I've definitely never been anywhere as nice as this. They answered all of my questions and I left feeling full and glad that I got to experience lots of different flavors. Thanks Bacchanalia!

fish was over cooked. sent it back, came back still too dry. the server was most times overbearing, spoke too fast and was "in our face".
good wine list. unremarkable otherwise. that said, friend had beef and said its delicious, but not so remarkable.
The food was excellent, but the service ...
The food was excellent, but the service was very slow. The waiter came immediately to welcome us, and said he would be back for drink orders, but it was nearly 20 minutes before he returned. Then, he wanted to explain the menu before taking the drink order. I asked for a refill on water, and 20 minutes later, we had to flag down another waiter to get the water. The food and wine are very good, but way over priced compared to other top Atlanta restaurants, You could maybe overlook the cost, or maybe not, if the service was superior.

I went with my boyfriend for our anniversary dinner. All the staff were extremely friendly and much more lighthearted than at other fine dining places I've been too which was refreshing. It just seemed like a more natural interaction.
The food itself was actually not quite the quality I was expecting but I also liked the dishes that my boyfriend chose a lot more than I did mine. His foie gras was like sweet sweet butter and his cheese course was like spring rain encapsulated, it was so refreshing.
I got the crab fritter because it came highly recommended but I didn't like the sauce that was at the bottom of my plate that much, it was very acidic and seemed a little too watery for a deep fried fritter. My duck main course was pretty disappointing. It was the smallest piece of duck and I couldn't taste any duck even when I ate some! The mushrooms on the plate were also a little over salted, an issue I had with some of their other dishes as well. However, the dish had many components and when you combined them together it came together perfectly and wiped away any complaints I had with the individual components.
There were also several bite sized extra interspersed throughout the meals, amouse bouches(?), that were really good and I think those really made the meal because the flavor in them was amazing.

I'll stick with Bones and Eugene. This was my first experience with Bacchanalia which is odd as I consider myself a foodie. The Service Manager had a difficult task in managing an out of control loud bunch at the large center table and failed. Pouring more alcohol for a table that is ruining the evening for guests including F-Bombs, occasional fight songs, etc. was a bad choice. Perhaps this could explain why a restaurant with such spectacular food and service had severable empty tables

The food was a huge disappointment after hearing rave reviews for years. Not sure if there has been a change in chef but the food was just boring tasting though beautifully presented and with excellent service. For the price, I would recommend many other Atlanta restaurants before this one.

What a lovely overall experience. The service was exceptional - well managed and flowed beautifully. An intricate part of the experience. The setting has memorable character - the rennovaters greatly respected the "bones" of the original building.

If you want to be in this class of restaurant the bar is set very high. The food is good, service is good, Wine list is good. Problem is "good" doesn't justify $160 a person. Chops Lobster bar is better on all points. This is my experience in many of the restaurants in this district.

Bacchanalia disappoints overall, especially considering the price point. While I shouldn't compare Bacchanalia to Michelin starred experiences, it wasn't even in the same ballpark. Service was awkward & lacking. Food was fine, however nothing was a stand out, not even their signature dishes. I would suggest going with no expectations.
