The ambience was so serene
The ambience was so serene and beautiful and we (us ladies with a party of 7) enjoyed it very much. Since I live in Redwood City it was nice for a change to not have to deal with the traffic and or parking trying to find such a nice Hotel to go to that wasn't located in the city. We tried the lunch menu at Bay 223 and felt the food could be better but I visited previouisly for the breakfast fare and felt it was very good so I was a little disappointed about the lunch menu. In any event I did want to point out that William our waiter was so attentive and fantastic that we really appreciated him and felt it necessary to comment accordingly. Also the rest of the staff at the Hotel were so welcoming...that ALONE is a reason to go visit...

I've been to Sunday Brunch here now twice, and both times have been wonderful. I will definitely be back again!

I needed a place on the peninsula with easy access to US101 for a business breakfast meeting. The Bay223 in the Hotel Sofitel was not only easy to get to, but we had a wonderful breakfast! The atmosphere was quiet enough for a great conversation and the food far exceeded by expectations!

Brunch is fantastic
The brunch selection here is great, and the mimosas are fabulous as well. We've been here a couple of times now, and generally have met with better service than this particular time - the drink refills were slow to appear, as was the check. But this is not the normal experience for brunch, as we've had excellent service in the past.

I like the booth, the swimming pool and the seats for drinks. It is good for couples. It is a wonderful place that people should go at least once.

Bay 223 is an enjoyable restaurant inside the Hotel Sofitel. I was seated after I checked in with the host, their staff of waiters and other servers made my lunch a very nice experience. My choice for lunch was the Lobster salad, it wasn't a big salad just enough for a light lunch.

I have been there many times for dinner. It was my first time there for lunch though. The waiter provided great and caring service. Food was good. I love this place because I don't hear the usual noise that most restaurants have. Great place to go for small gatherings.

I have been there many times for lunch and dinner. They didn't have my favorite lobster bisque that day. Kind of disappointed. Service and food are always good.

Wonderful Sunday brunch
We love coming to Bay 223 for special occasions and especially for the sunday brunch. The array and quality of food is exquisite. Great service also and atmosphere.

Great meal, attentive service
I planned a surprise birthday dinner here for my husband and 8 friends, and was very pleased with the food, service and atmosphere. It was a bit quiet in the area where we were seated, but the upside was we didn't have to worry about noise from our table bothering other patrons. I especially liked that there was no set menu required for a party of 10--everyone could order exactly what he or she wanted. Our server was friendly, attentive and kept things moving at a good pace without ever making us feel rushed. The menu is French-influenced but not at all heavy, and both of the items I ordered were vegan by design (great for someone with a dairy allergy who often avoids French restaurants!). I would go back and would recommend it to others.
