One of our most favorite restaurants in Newport Beach
On Mother's Day Sunday at dinner time, the food, once served, was great. The staff members, from the valet parking on, were very friendly. The restaurant is not actually at the water side which seemed implied in their description, but was very pleasant inside. The biggest problem was that we had to wait for over an hour before our order was served. We were not given any explanation. While there were several groups at tables when we arrived, there were still tables open. The hour plus wait for the food to be served tended to diminish our overall opinion of the restaurant. I would give it one more chance, based on the quality of the food, and would hope the serving time problem was corrected.
Service was extremely slow and everything showed up so late. I haven’t experienced this at Bayside before.
Good food and vibe. Slow service but it was mother’s day dinner. Requested outside on reservation, didn’t get it or request even recognized.
Our experience here was very good as always. I was a bit disappointed however that although we requested outdoor seating through Open Table the restaurant said they didn't see this. They said this happens often with Open Table and best to call the restaurant directly. Note to self.
Mother's Day Brunch was disappointing.
Not up to Bayside's usual standard.
My first time at this restaurant and it was for Mother’s Day Brunch. Our table was ready right away, service was real nice and the food tasted really good. I was really pleased with my first visit and look to go back on a regular day visit.
We loved the singer in the bar area! We enjoyed our time and the food was delicious!
Great food, presentation and atmosphere. Delicious mimosas with the weekend brunch too!!
This was for mothers day brunch 2019. Reservation for 10am: Did not open the doors until 5 past. No welcome flower, musician was not even there yet. We were seated and told great table to hear music...Horrible menu for a mother day lunch - totally not kid friendly. No breakfast items, kids menu had nothing kids eat, food was dry, appetizers terrible and main dish even worse. This place used to be great, now...its a shadow of its former self. The champagne was free flowing though. That was the one positive. As we paid our $200 bill for 4 and we left, we wondered if the musician ever came, as we walk out, there is a guy playing a guitar -. sad...
Rack of lamb was the best we ever had! Chocolate soufflé for desert was awesome. Menu had a nice variety to meet everyone’s needs/interests. Service was impeccable! Waitress was very friendly and helpful. We sat in the enclosed patio and was able to have a conversation with my family very easily. There was live music inside the restaurant. Bar area was very cozy. My sons who live in Newport Beach had never been there and were very happy to find another local place for date nights. Menu is a little pricy but worth it! Will definitely be a return customer:)
we used to go to bayside regularly but hadn't been back for a while. the food was excellent. the only problem was that we had requested bar seating when we made the reservation well in advance to hear the jazz group as our friends are big jazz fans. we got seated at an outside patio table which lacks any ambience and couldn't hear a thing. very disappointing.
Wow! Our meal and service were superb. We enjoyed the prix fixed meals. They were very affordable and excellent quality. My starter Tartare yellowfin tuna was deliciously fresh. It was a large portion and seasoned perfectly. Our entrees of lamb chops, filet mignon and halibut were cooked perfectly. All portions were generous. Our chocolate soufflé topped off our evening.
We will be back! Delicious!
I had the swordfish and it was amazing! The best I have ever eaten! The service is always the best ! Bayside is the best restaurant in the OC 🍊
Lovely and delicious low-key restaurant for the older crowd
We were a group of 4 and everyone was raving about their meals. Service was excellent and atmosphere very lively.
The food was excellent but didn't care much for the waiter.
THIS IS THE FOURTH YEAR IN A ROW WE HAVE CELEBRATED MY SONS BIRTHDAY AT BAYSIDE. HE LOVES THE RACK OF LAMB. IT WAS OUTSTANDING AS USUAL
This was our first time here and thoroughly enjoyed it. What a great Easter meal!
Easter Brunch...certainly not first time here, but lamb was outstanding as well as mushrooms purée
Fabulous ! Had roasted garlic soup and halibut!! It was perfect!
Took an hour between appetizers and main. Way too long.
Server wasn't very attentive
First time dining at Bayside... will definitely not be our last... looking forward to many repeat experiences...
Mavie was our waiter. He was terrific!
We had the prix fix menu, great choice.
The piano singer was a nice touch.
The food was creative and delicious!
Excellent , excellent , excellent !!! As always !!
EVERY MOMENT, FROM THE ARRIVAL TO OUR DEPARTURE, WAS SUPERB! EVERYONE WAS SOOO PLEASANT, QUITE PROFESSIONAL, AND LAST, BUT NOT LEAST, THE FOOD WAS EXQUISITE!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU TREAT YOURSELF TO A SPECIAL VISIT/EXPERIENCE!!!!
This is our go-to restaurant for a nice evening with friends for good food and service. Never disappointed. Already have another reservation later this week. Menu offers variety as well as their happy hour menu.
This is my "go to" restaurant in Newport Beach. The incredible food, service, and ambiance are always superb.
Great experience and a very patient, considerate staff.
Everything was exceptional! The best calamari! We ordered the pork chop and the halibut which were both very delicious! They didn’t rush us at all. We were there for 2.5 hours! Great live jazz!
My husband and I came on a Sunday evening at 5:00pm, before the music began. We sat on the outside terrace at the corner table so we could see the water and the boats. We loved our experience. It was quiet and peaceful and just what we were looking for. I got the risotto with chicken instead of prawns and it was v tasty. Would definitely recommend. The watermelon mule was also super refreshing and tasty.
Food and service was excellent. The ahi main dish, a recent addition, was delicious.
Great place - love Larry and Damian. Great servers. Food is awesome also - really good chef !
This is my "go to" place when getting together with a group for Sunday Brunch. Enough options to suit everyone's needs. Bottomless champagne brunch is a bonus. Great live music. Pretty atmosphere. I've done many a birthdays here and everyone always enjoys it. Prices are good. Portions are good and tasty. Most of us took home leftovers. But they changed the brunch....it doesn't include dessert anymore. We usually are too full anyway but it's always nice to end a good meal with a sweet! Plenty of parking - valet parking or self park available. BTW, they do a great happy hour too!
This was my wife and I first time here and it was a wonderful evening. The Hostess could have been a little friendlier when we Arrived. She had on a long Black dress. Besides that it was Awesome. 9.9/10
Amazing foods food great food good was my amazing dinner here o
The filet at Bayside is the best! The service at Bayside is the best! You will always have a great meal and service at Bayside! Thank you to everyone at Bayside!
Great food and service. It’s a special place. Wish they had a “senior” menu like Bistango does.
