We were quite excited to visit Baia. After all a nice restaurant on the bay, terrace seating etc.
We were in fact promptly seated but unfortunately not out on the terraced deck.
The clam chowder was so-so. The caeser salad was drenched in dressing. Then we were informed that the kitchen was extremely backed up even though the restaurant was barely 1/3 full.
So my wife and decided to take in the beautiful outdoor views and walk along the exterior deck.
We were barely outside for 5 minutes when we returned to our table only to find that it had been totally cleared of our drinks, my eyeglasses and totally reset for another party.
After asking the wait staff what happened to our table, the manager arrived and apologized.
Finally after another 20 minutes our entrees arrived. Both the sea bass and the grouper, although nicely presented, were extremely oversalted.
Again management apologized and offered to remove the charges.
The ambiance is wonderful but all else does not pass the litmus test. Sorry we will not be returning.

We had 7:00 pm reservations. We finally got seated at 7:40. The excuse was they did not have enough menus. We offered for the hostess to seat us without menus and we would have a cocktail. At 8:00 the waiter asked us if we would like something to drink. We ordered cocktails and left the restaurant (without being served our drink) at 8:20. We did call the manager over and she told us there was nothing she could do as they were not supposed to be open.

Consequently we will never go back

Very pleasant server named Lamar. Helpful and great service. Calamari appetizer was great. One of our entrees was wrong, the person delivering food to the table seemed shocked that we wanted what we ordered. It took about 10minutes...but it was delicious. Great cocktail menu. Love the seafood selection and then pick your sauces. Tuna was too blackened with heavy heavy seasoning and was overcooked. Dont advertise sushi grade on the menu if you are cooking it well done. Will go back.

We have been wanting to go to this restaurant and it was definitely worth it. Fun, beautiful view of the water, service was excellent for dinner not so much at their tiki bar due to one bartender and 30 people at bar. We ordered food at Tiki and it never came also. It was happy hour and I guess they were not expecting the crowd since it was beautiful and middle of September it was a Friday night. Will go back the restaurant closes for the winter though.

Table of 6, 4 seniors (2 on walkers). Placed in farthest corner of restaurant. Server took drink and food orders and never saw her again. Someone else brought the food (it was good). Drinks never refilled. Plates sat empty for 30 minutes before we went for manager to get bill. Manager didn't say a word. Not busy. Just poor service. We use Open Table ALOT. First time we wouldn't return to a restaurant.

Must have been an off day for the chef and server didn't handle the feedback well. The chicken was cold and fish seemed entry level. Used to look forward to coming here. Going to give this place a break for a good while.
