There are three ways to enjoy the Bayside Seafood Grill & Bar, one of Naples most beloved waterfront restaurants for locals and visitors alike. The Café, on the sidewalk level, has the wonderful, bustling ambience of a big city neighborhood café. The Café menu offers sandwiches, salads and light entrees through the late afternoon and evening. The Grill, accepting reservations, is upstairs and overlooks the Venetian Bay -- one of Naples best waterfront dining views. The Grill specializes in creative and superbly prepared seafood, meats, and pasta dishes. The Grill menu is also served on the Upper Deck Bar and Covered Patio, an award winning outdoor cocktail and dining spot that overlooks Venetian Bay and provides spectacular hues of the setting sun. Between 2-4:30p.m. the Upper Deck Bar offers a lighter, late lunch menu.

Outstanding venue, the food was reasonably priced and very good overall.

My only gripe was the Fried Calamari starter. For a "seafood" restaurant, the dish contained only calamari rings, no tentacles, which makes me suspect they came out of a box, and weren't fresh. AND, the portion was unacceptably small for the price. Deduct 1/2 star!

On the other hand, they were done to perfection and were the best calamari rings I've ever had, and I've had a lot. Maybe they WERE fresh after all LOL!

Overall the Bayside gets 4 1/2 stars, highly recommended.

The food at Bayside specifically the Miso Seabass was excellent. The view was peaceful and serene. The service was very good as well.
I had no complaints at all.

It’s always nice to dine near the bay. You just can’t ignore being captivated by the water, boats, and dolphins. Eating the Tai Coconut Shrimp salad was perfect sitting outdoors. The selected salad presentation and dressing complimented each other. To top it off, enjoyed the smooth and tasty key lime tart.
Love this dining experience!

Asked for and was seated for outdoor dining. We were the only ones in the outdoor area, when the hostess seats a party of 3 right next to us, while all other tables in the room were empty. Covid protocols as described on there website? The manager came over unsolicited and moved the party across the room.
Next party comes in and they again try to seat next to us. They asked to be seated with more distance in the many available tables. The chowder came out cold and needed to be re-heated. Our waiter seemed new. Service was good and honored my request to have a slow paced meal, but overall seemed new. The food was very good, our view was terrific. Overall a good meal with some issues along the way. I

It was my husband and my anniversary and I made the dinner reservations and treated him for a change to this wonderful and new restaurant for us while visiting here in Naples. Ambience is elegant and the views are amazing! The food was superb. I had the Bouillabaisse special and my husband had the filet mignon entrée. Justin was our server. From service, the quality of food and portion size, everything was exceptional!!

Worst food we have ever had in Naples. The food is obviously made hours if not days ahead and then microwaved. It was served within 15 minutes of ordering. I ordered the duck!! It can't possibly be made in 15 minutes. All 3 of the main dishes were over cooked, dry and old.

Food was excellent. However, the new server made several blunders that impacted the meal: Brought wrong meal to table, brought wrong bill to table, was unfamiliar with gift certificate process. He actually chased us down in the parking lot.

Overall, we would still go back since these issues were specific to a new server.

Great location overlooking the water. All the food sounded great. We chose the coconut shrimp, and they did not disappoint. Flourless chocolate cake for dessert was perfect. Jake, our waiter, was great. One of our favorite restaurants from Sanibel to Naples. Highly recommend.

It was for our 46th wedding anniversary! Which was noted when we made our reservations. When we were seated we told our server it was our anniversary and she ‘happy anniversary’ then we ask what do they do for special occasions and she said nothing we said really! We did order drinks then ask to see the manager. He came over and we ask him again so you do anything for special occasions and he also said no they do nothing we said well we are leaving and we did not pay for our drinks. We left and we will not be returning to Bay Side any time soon!!!

Outstanding Restaurant - only thing was amazed at no music or anything background. You could hear ourselves eat and the silence was somewhat odd. Really could use some background music or something other than the silence.

This was our first time at Bayside and did decide on this restaurant to celebrate our daughter's graduation with a Masters degree based on other reviews. The reviewers were not wrong. OUTSTANDING food!!!

I had the Sea Bass which was the best I have ever had. My husband at the Salmon and it rivaled my own, which he loves. My daughter and her boyfriend first had the coconut shrimp (which were amazing) and then each a filet. The filet was cooked to perfection with just the right amount of demi glaze.

The service was very attentive but not in an overly clingy way. We sat outside (covered with open air windows) to take in the beautiful bay and watched the lightening show in the distance.

My only contribution to the restaurant is that the outside patio could use some updating. Paint is looking a bit ragged among other things. I recognize that the outside patio does have to face the elements but it could be freshened up.

All in all, so happy we choose the restaurant. The food was something we will all remember longingly until we "hopefully" return soon!

We arrived in the parking lot right across from the front door of the restaurant. Upon entering we were directed to the dining room when we got seated at a very nice location. The service was very accommodating and the dishes we selected we’re very good and paired with a wine the server suggested. Very happy with our visit.
