Bacchus - so-so

Tried Bacchus again this week - on 2 for 1 night and was once again disappointed. I ordered the cod with spinach and rice. The entire entrée was lukewarm and had no flavor. I NEVER salt my entrées and yet found myself uncapping the saltshaker - anything to save this bland dish. Never again.
My companion ordered the chicken and fared slightly better. It was warm, passably tasty and ok, I'll admit it - the fries were good. But so are McDonalds.
I have eaten here for dinner (not on 2 for one night), and brunch as well and have yet to enjoy the food. And believe me, if I'm not the one who has to cook it I usually have no complaints. Especially if it's 2 for 1!
So what is the appeal of the place? Is it more for wine lovers/Francophiles than food lovers?
I'd be interested in hearing what people have enjoyed here as well as hearing from others that have been less than impressed.
