Girls Night Out at Bacchus

We dined at Bacchus as a guest

Are you looking for the next best place to have a girls night out? We recently discovered one of Orange County’s hidden gems when dining at Bacchus in Irvine.

Bacchus in Irvine

I have been going to the Quail Hill Shopping Center in Irvine for many years, and I don’t know how I never noticed Bacchus? The fun and chic restaurant is tucked in the corner for the shopping community and offers guests incredible cuisine and spirits.

Recently, I planned to have dinner with two of my closest friends at Bacchus, and we had an unforgettable dining experience. When we first arrived, we found a quiet table in the back of the restaurant where we took some time to talk and catch-up on all our busy lives.

Meats and cheeses at Bacchus

After getting settled in for the evening, we started with my favorite thing in the world, a charcuterie board. It is called the Shady Canyon Board that features three artisan kinds of cheese and three gourmet types of meat. The bread was cooked fresh and warm. The flavors of the meats and cheeses were paired beautifully, and it was an excellent start to our dining experience at Bacchus.

When it came to selecting an item from the main menu, none of us could decide. So, we decided to share three different dishes.

Pork belly at Bacchus

The chef recommended the pork lollipops, and we were so glad that he did. The dish featured crispy pork belly, mashed potatoes, and a flavorful sauce. I savored every bite of the perfectly cooked pork belly, which left me craving more for days to come.

Cuabno sandwich at Bacchus

We all wanted to try the Cubano sandwich with boasted with flavors. Inside of freshly pressed bread were confit pulled pork, black forest ham, pickles, stone ground mustard, and gruyere cheese. The sandwich was authentic, and one of the highlights of our evening.

Fish at Bacchus

My favorite dish of the evening was the market fish special. The fish tasted as if it had just been caught that morning. It was paired to perfection with jasmine rice, asparagus, carrots, and a Lemongrass Buerre Blanc. I highly recommend getting this dish when dining at Bacchus.

Filet mignon at Bacchus

Finally, since one of my friends is on a keto diet, we ordered the filet mignon. The tender meat was presented on top of a bed of fluffy mashed potatoes. It was paired with wild mushrooms, carrots and a Napa Cabernet Reduction.

Everything exceeded our expectations, and the restaurant quickly became our new favorite place to dine in Irvine. When looking for somewhere fresh and fun to dine out with your friends, Bacchus is the ideal place to eat. You’ll not only have fun, enjoy the fun environment, but also treat yourself to incredible cuisine.

Bacchus is located at:
