Bayside Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
The restaurant it beautiful but we were drowned out by the din of conversation. There is a problem with todays dining. The restaurants do not have any noise drowning drapes or carpeting and everything bounces off the walls! It is not just Bayside but many restaurants. Hard to have a conversation.
Food is always excellent and consistent quality. Our waitress was observant and comped us our wine corkage because the wait times during our meal were a little excessive at times. We were showing your restaurant off to friends and we were sorry they weren't able to see the top quality service we usually have when dining with you.
I made my reservation online and a question was asked "what am I celebrating" and I had options to choose from and chose "anniversary" since we chose this place to celebrate our 13 year anniversary, and we were not acknowledged about our anniversary with any special dessert or verbal congrats.
Disappointed! Thought it was pointless to check the box for a celebratory occasion, and nothing special was done!
We always love our meals at Bayside from the valet parking attendant to the host / hostess/ server and runners. Movie is an excellent server - he remember what we usually order even better than we do sometimes! My husband had the Octoberfest special and it was marvelous. We'll be back
Used to be a great restaurant. The lamb tasted old vegetables etc in plate whole presentation lacking. Expensive for lunch fish $38 as opposed to other places $28-34. Only 3-4 tables filled at peak lunch time. Our server Sylvie was fantastic and the valet is wonderful.
I take my family to Bayside every time I visit my mother in law with my grown children in Newport Beach. Restaurant hits high marks on all important points. Service is always excellent, great ambiance and food is delicious. Solid wine list and well made drinks guarantee a wonderful evening . Never fails to finish our visits on a high note.
Just yummy and delightful in every way. Love the feeling of space that the 3 different rooms give. There were lots of people but it didn't seem crowded in the main dining room- just relaxing. .... the bar area was busy, but that did not take away from our food or service.
We both had the compressed lobster salad appetizer. Quite filling, but oh so yummy. The mushroom crested halibut didn't have much mushroom flavor, but was fine . The lamb was awesome. Their home made banana sorbet was killer.
One of our new favorite spots for a "fancy" night out.
This restaurant is great for date night and people watching with excellent food. Can't go wrong with the scallops (5 instead of the usual 3) and they have great apps like prawns and carpaccio. The wine list is stellar and weekends usually have a live band playing. Valet parking to top it off
