We do a lot of fine dining and were excited to finally go to Bacchnalia in Atlanta. Rarely write a bad review. Got tasting menu - first course (steak tartare and crab fritter) were prepared well and had good pairings. My second course (lobster) was...overdone and rubbery. Third course of cheeses was really just bizarre, Would have been happier with some plain interesting cheeses, but they put toppings on that messed with the texture and the taste, didn’t eat it. Decided to skip 4th course and leave. Hope it was just our seat but it smelled like sewer gas throughout dinner. Happily they only charged us for the wine since we were dissatisfied but I would much rather have had the dining experience we were looking forward to.More

We dined on a Friday evening with some friends who we had not seen in a while, It had been an even longer while since we have been to Bacchanalia, in fact they are in a different location and a new building. It has self...parking in a lovely open lot on premise and the decor is modern and tasteful. The four course menu has plenty of variety and the wine list is more than adequate to the task of matching the menu. We were seated in a curtained off private area and the privacy and noise level were bonuses. My crab fritter with its citrus based sauce was terrific as too was the lamb. Everybody seemed happy with their food and the pace of the meal was perfect. Service was excellent and the experience an excellent one. We must not leave it so long before returning.More

All in all we were happy but did notice a slip in service, probably due to staff shortages. Service was a bit slow on a midweek night. Several wines were not available due to "supply chain logistics"? Hmmm. The food was good and we were...served some complimentary sharing plates that were all excellent. Having been here several times before we understand the challenges of staffing but never felt this way before. We will be back and hope the service is better.More

I haven't been to Bacchanalia in a few years and always loved it in the past. Sadly I was disappointed by this experience. Food was good but not anywhere near what it used to be. Service was poor, rude, uncaring, horrible for what they charge....The experience felt like a factory mass producing food and getting you out as fast as possible so they could rip off the next guest. I am sad to write this poor review but it is sincere. $400+ for 2-people with limited wine.More

Absolutely amazing meal. Four prix fixe courses of simply perfect preparation, presentation and flavor. Definitely choose the wine pairing for each course.

Chilly service with attitude from people who act like they are Buckhead offspring instead of servers. But whatever. Food was ordinary. Nothing spectacular. We ate at Aria the evening before and the food was just as good and the service MUCH better. It's been a...couple of years since we had been here, and we won't return any time soon.More

Wonderful restaurant for a special occasion or romantic dinner. The food is a work of art and delicious with great presentation. Yes, it is pricy, but it is a unique dining experience. The service is great and not pretentious. The location and setting is perfect....My only complaint was the chairs in the dining room. They were not very comfortable for a long dinner service. Otherwise, top notch.More

I believe I have reviewed this restaurant a couple of times and for me its place to go there and eat during special occasions. I took my friend for her birthday celebration and it was her first time at this establishment. And let me just...say she was so impressed by the food but the customer service was on another level. I have always believed people will always come back if the service is great. I had the chance to actually order for her and we went with four course menus. For the lady, first course Maine Lobster, which was super delicious, second course, third course scallops, local greens and for the dessert summerland farm blackberry. For myself I had Foie Gras Torchon, Lamb Loin which was amazing, chevre and chocolate for dessert. I love good food, but I also believe delicious things come in small packages. I grew up in Sweden where we eat small but also enjoy eating our small portion. I promise this its so much food that when you are done, I was so full that we just wanted to go and sleep. I would for sure recommend this establishment not only for good food but I truly believe in supporting our local restaurant and people who work there. Cheers Bacchanalia for an amazing birthday party. BNMore

This restaurant was everything we hoped it would be. Great food and very attentive wait staff. Like most restaurants of this caliber the portions were smaller than a big eater like me prefers. I had the NY strip which was cooked to perfection, although I...only got a portion of the steak. The wine was delicious. The four-course dinner was a nice experience but it was a bit pricey. The bill for the two of us was $300, but it was a very pleasant evening.More

Impeccable. Impeccable service Impeccable food Impeccable hostess Impeccable servers Impeccable ambiance Nothing short of 5 star. Money spent, a lot of it, WORTH IT Went the week after Valentines Day because my sweetie had to take a business trip on the 14th and this experience...(because this is an experience, you aren't staying for an hour and a half clear out your schedule) was such a treat! Think a facial for your palate. I hope to go back on my anniversary. Oh and it rained that day. The weather will never stop me from coming here.More

Marvelous Restaurant!! Philosophically speaking, a strictly Kosher diner would be unhappy with the kitchen. Narrowly addressing the specific question: Ms. Quatrano is the right person to ask.
