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 2-5 p.m. the Upper Deck Bar offers a lighter, late lunch menu.

I come here for brunch quite often and I brought my sister who was visiting from New Jersey, as well as a few Naples residents who had never been here before and I got rave reviews. Thank you again for a pleasant dining experience.

Impressive. Came here with family for my father's 81st birthday and it was a wonderful dinner. The view of the bay at sunset was beautiful and the restaurant itself was lovely. The service was outstanding - our waiter was knowledgable, attentive, and fun. The food was phenomenal - dad loves duck and this was one of the best prepared he has had in a long time. The crisp mahi mahi and sea bass were fresh and expertly prepared, and mom's liver and onions (a rarity to see any more) brought back great comfort food memories. Chef Abel and his staff have a real gem of a restaurant and deserve the many five star reviews on Open Table. If you have not been to Bayside yet, go and bring friends. You will not be disappointed.

A very scenic & comfortable setting. Food is reasonably priced, well prepared and service was excellent. Facility has nice option of indoor or outdoor seating with bar seating as well. We have always had consistent food quality on our visits. Would recommend restaurant for families as well. Restaurant has great water front location and shopping available adjacent and across boulevard.

We had a sea bass that was awful!!!!! Very hard in texture that felt we had an old fish brought to the table. It’s a shame we went for our 26 wedding anniversary.

We love Bayside. The food is always outstanding. The music Saturday night was less than enjoyable. Very loud and hard to have a conversation at our table. Service was ok but from the looks of the restaurant tables that were filled, understaffed. Our server was great although he could of used roller skates.
Otherwise, we did enjoy the evening.

We love the food here and usually receive very friendly service. This time for the summer menu the waitress objected to us splitting the summer menu with our adding an additional soup and salad. This was not appropriate for such a nice restaurant and put a bit of a damper on the experience.

Lunch with 4 ladies on Friday, 10 Aug 2018. I saw in the newspaper later that day that there is a prix fixe lunch special going on then but our server neither mentioned it nor did we see any menu indicating this. The food was ok but I felt a little overpriced. I had the mahi gyro with the kale slaw side. ($18) The fish was dry and overcooked and it would have been impossible to eat the gyro as a sandwich as the pita bread was tough. I ate the filling with a fork and pinched off a few pieces of the pita. It was ok and the slaw was good but I think it may have been made from a bagged mix from the grocery store. The place was quiet but there were only a few people there so couldn't judge noise level. The view was nice as we had a table near the window. The outside patio looked inviting as it was covered and had fans. I would definitely go back for lunch. Was just disappointed that the prix fixe specials were not told to us by our server.

Bayside is one of my favorite restaurants in Naples. Usually I visit for lunch and have their terrific crunchy grouper sandwich, but this time, I decided to try their dinner selections. I couldn't have been more pleased. We had terrific service and the food was outstanding. We tried their summer menu which includes a starter, an entree and a dessert. I had the New England clam chowder with bacon, the teriyaki salmon and the bread pudding. All three were delicious, although the clam chowder could have used a little less bacon. I will definitely return for dinner in the future at Bayside!

Nice view, and pretty dining room (upstairs, indoors). Food was good, but not "outstanding." Enjoyed our visit and had decent service, though a little slow considering tgey werent very busy. Do recommend for the view, but maybe when menus other than the limited brunch one we had are offered. (PS Tough for handicapped patrons, there are a few steps, after an elevator ride, if you want to be close to the bay view.)

The food was excellent the service was OK our server really didn’t have much of a personality or any recommendations and even after we told him it was our anniversary when leaving and if he knew a good place to go he said you can try Harolds and still never even wished us a happy anniversary so not the restaurants fault just the waiters I would definitely go back again and if I was given the same waiter I would be asking for a different table with a different waiter. Being a previous restaurant owner I feel that I wouldn’t hold the food against the waiter the food was amazing ..
