  • "My meal there was a light dinner comprised of two appetizers, with wine and bread. It proved to be one of the best dinners I've ever had. The ravioli were absolutely outstanding and the crab and avocado salad was excellently flavored and provided lots of crab. I spent 9 days in the Sonoma area and this was without question my best dining experience and meal!"

  • "we always like to go to the all you can eat crab feed in the winter months. The crab is great and the pasta, soup and salad are nice too. The only problem is that customers think it is ok to bring a small child, 0-4 years old to an expensive restaurant. When I pay $50 for my dinner, I don't want to listen to some kid screaming and the parents just sitting there thinking it is CUTE. Other than that, we enjoy the Tides very much."

  • "I got one of the most expensive things on the menu mainly because it sounded so good in the description, a filet mignon stuffed with crab and topped with a sauce. I ordered it medium and it came a little overcooked, closer to medium well. I didn't say anything, but the crab stuffing wasn't anything to write home about either. We got the "chocolate molten lava cake" and there was absolutely no "molten lava" gooey-ness at all in the center. It was very moist, but that is just a moist chocolate cake, NOT a molten lava cake. It also was not served with anything other than a flower for garnish. Would have been nice to have whipped cream or something like that on the plate. First time there and it was just a bit of a disappointment."

  • "Dinner at Bay View Restaurant was a gift for our honeymoon weekend. The experience was really wonderful, we don't normally go to this type of restaurant, but we thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was amazing, we had cioppino and filet mignon hitchcock. They paired delicious wines to go with our meal. I ordered the tirimisu for dessert and it was to die for."

  • "My husband requested we go to bay view as we have had fabulous dinners there in the past. Unfortunately this time the food was horrible. Everything was tasteless except the fish that had way too much salt. Our server was very inexperienced but polite and nice. We won't go back."

  • "My sister and my best friend have made Christmas dinner at the Bay View Restaurant in Bodega Bay our annual tradition for at least five years now and it is still a warm, wonderful experience. Great food, friendly, helpful staff, and a million dollar view plus the cheerful holiday decor make us want to return each year. I highly recommend it!"

  • "Food was edible but bland. Service was spotty. Chowder arrived lukewarm. Decor could use an update . Christmas lights outside were pretty! A nice place to take Grandma and Grandpa."

  • "Really disappointed by this restaurant. . We are local to the area and had never been and wanted to check it out. Granted, we went on Christmas day so perhaps the regular chef was not on duty? The food was literally tasteless and bland. And this is even when they smothered the salman in sauces. We wondered if the food is so poor in quality and taste because it's catering to the tourists? Having said that, there are other local places that are extraordinary so not sure what the situation is."

  • "Fantastic view, super food with an Italian and seafood emphasis. Well executed and professionally served and the host being very welcoming. Worth the drive!"

  • "Interesting, we decided to eat at The Bay View Restaurant on Wednesday before Thanksgiving as our numerous experiences on Thanksgiving were not good. Reservations were poorly handled and the kitchen was overwhelmed with very uneven food. So on Wednesday, early (5:45) and a room that was never more than half full, the kitchen dropped the ball on the entrees. Our appetizers were good. My husband had grilled salmon with bearnaise sauce. The salmon was dry and the scant tablespoon of bearnaise could not save the day. My entree, saltimbocca, was not traditional as they somehow affixed a ton of proscuitto onto four little veal scallops and sauteed it to super crisp.Overcooked and unbelievably salty."

  • "the location it's the best thing about this restaurant... great view. Dinner was good... well prepared, tasty. the table service was good our waitress was attentive and took care of us. the problem was the bar service. ordered a chocolate martini after dinner and got a regular Maritini with chocolate syrup in the glass. decided to give the bartender a second chance and order a White Russian.... got a glass of vodka with cream. this was a birthday dinner, clearly noted on reservation, no mention of birthday during meal. =( fix the bar issues and this would be a great place to dine for special occasions."

  • "Great service great view and the chiopino and crab tower were excellent - but the gnocchi special with beets while well conceived and great presentation was overdone. The gnocchi had just been cooked too long, otherwise a great dinner."

  • "Great seafood (and even a super steak) along with a very pleasant welcome and prompt service, for sure worth a repeat visit"

  • "A great chiopino and the chef added a little local wild salmon for an extra price so it was a real treat!"
