Good wine selection. For fine dining the food is average and overpriced.

We had another great dinner at Bayside. Our server is excellent. Great Vesper Martinis. Sea Bass was tremendous. One of our favorites in OC.

We always enjoy our meal at Bayside. The valet attendant is so pleasant, Mavie is an experienced and extremely competent server and the food is delicious. Oh , and they offer live entertainment- what’s not to enjoy

Great brunch and at a great price! Their chicken with the polenta is outstanding. Live music, free pouring champagne...one of the best brunches in OC.

This is a really good restaurant. Basic American food. Terrific fish and steaks and excellent service. The music on the bar side is too loud on the dining room side. In addition, if you want to share a salad they charge an enhancement to what is already a very expensive salad – and they don't tell you in advance. These kind of surprises are negative and really very ungracious. This too. Should not dissuade you from enjoying a fine meal at this restaurant.

Bayside is a beautiful restaurant with some truly amazing dishes. I ordered the chicken breast, and found it to be delightfully juicy and seasoned perfectly. The prices aren't bad, and the service was stellar. Oh, and the live pianist added a lot to the ambiance here.

We were celebrating a friends birthday and enjoyed ourselves. Only one problem, they
had run out of the halibut at 6 pm!!! Maybe they could put a couple more fish dishes on their
menu in the future!
