Seafood
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.

First time in this restaurant since we have been coming to Naples. We lucked out and were able to see fire works from patio as we ate. Very nice. Will come again next time in Naples.

The food was good. The staff was fair but sloppy. The ambiance outside the restaurant was beautiful but the inside was dated and needed upkeep.

I’ve been to this restaurant many times, and the food has always been great, but last night it was bad. I ordered the grilled snapper. It was over cooked, no flavor, and I don’t even think it was snapper.

Brought friends from Tampa out for an early dinner. They beat me there and sat at the bar outside and enjoyed the cool breeze and awesome view of the bay.
We had a really lovely early dinner....food, wine and service were all excellent.

Needs updating. No atmosphere with music or anything. Thought I’d entered a retirement home. It has a fabulous view and the food was delicious so if renovated and music etc it could be a great place but I wouldn’t return as it currently stands.

We had early reservations, so it was very quiet dining inside, upstairs. Lovely view and excellent service. We both enjoyed our entrees very much - Snapper and Steak. The Beet Salad was not quite what we expected, but the greens were very fresh. If you like a Key Lime Pie that is not sweet, then you will likely enjoy the Key Lime Tort. We also enjoyed the Pina Colada cream cheese dessert. Wine selection was very nice.

Always an enjoyable dining experience whether you choose a table inside or outside under cover. Your view is the beautiful, calm waters of Venetian Bay. Bartenders and servers are well trained professionals who serve with a smile. Live music is the cherry on top.

Our party of four enjoyed Bayside Seafood Grill and Bar during restaurant week. We ordered from the prefix selections and each person raved about his/her meal and, as for myself, the clam chowder was wonderful, the pistachio encrusted snapper was prepared perfectly and the lime tart was a great way to close out the meal. Our server, Doug, was friendly, efficient and humorous. Finally, our table was situated in front of a full length window offering a lovely view of the bay. I would highly recommend Bayside for a special occasion or simply as a treat to yourself.

5/22/19. Enjoyed lunch with friends. Especially the crab cakes and pea soup. Friends had beet salad and Coconut Shrimp salad. Restaurant was full for lunch. Beautiful view of bay and white table cloths. Elegant lunch. Waiter was very under standing about our visiting before we ordered.
We will dine again.
This is for Open Table. Second time that reservation ended up in another State. So I went to Safari to make the correct area, Naples Florida. To my surprise it was Open Table that made this reservation but no points to my account. How would you feel if this happened to you twice? Kp

I recently sent in a negative report the Bayside Seaford Grill & Bar by mistake. We had also recently dined at the Bay House in Naples and I had the Bay House experience in mind when I wrote the negative report. The band at the Bay House was loud and distracting. We love the Bayside and go frequently. I don't know how to correct my wrong input. Thanks.

I ordered the coconut shrimp and the batter was definitely not cooked through. The very few shredded vegetables that came with my meal were doused with what I believe was toasted sesame oil which doesn't work at all. Couldn't eat it at all. The only thing good on my plate was the white rice. My friend said her fish dish was okay. Of course, the atmosphere is amazing thank goodness.

This was our first time here. A few members of our party preferred to be outside so we were seated on the deck. The space was nice but the energy was boisterous. It was pretty loud because everyone was struggling to talk over the musician (poor guy - he was good). If you want to have a nice conversation without struggle, I recommend eating inside. It all depends on your mood!

The food was excellent. We loved it all, especially the black pepper crusted ahi tuna and the rack of lamb. I'm not a fan of lamb but my husband is and loved it. And the portion was huge!

The only issue with the food is that we waited a pretty long time between our appetizers/salads and our main course, almost 25 minutes. We didn't say anything because that's just not what we do unless there's a big problem, but our wait staff never said a word to us about it. They passed our table multiple times noticing that it was still empty. When our food finally arrived, we weren't given any explanation. Look, we're not people to demand apologies or discounts or anything like that, but an acknowledgment of any potential inconvenience would be nice. It doesn't matter what you're paying, it's just general politeness and good customer service.

At any rate, we'll definitely give it another shot since we know what to expect - especially the delicious food!

If you can say you had an excellent meal at a restaurant on Mother’s Day, you know you a saying a lot.
Since I was the mother, I was expecting chaos and a haphazard meal but was pleasantly surprise. The food was fresh and delicious, the service impeccable and the atmosphere bright, clean, relaxed and NOT noisy!!
As a mom watching her son pay the bill, I did feel guilty because it was more expensive than I thought it would be but overall, it was a positive experience for the four of us.
