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.

Hostess was rude. We had a reservations but her attitude was that did not mean much. When finally seated food was excellent and nice varied menu. Not a place to go in season given how they treat customer when busy.

The food was good but a very rude waitress at the reception informed us we (4) didn't have a reservation when we did. She said you're not in the computer so you have no reservation! When we looked over to the computer, there we were. She was extremely rude and just walked away.
This incident would cause me to take pause before ever going there again.

The food at Bayside is excellent. Our server was accommodating, punctual and pleasant. The only issue was loud noise coming from a group of 6 across the area.

The menu posted on Open Table is the same as the one at the restaurant. However, the prices are higher in the restaurant. It should be updated to reflect the current prices.

We sat upstairs and ended up just eating at the bar. We loved the atmosphere. Beautiful weather and had someone playing guitar. The food was fantastic. I had the crispy mahi mahi and spouse had the shrimp scampi pasta. The coconut cake was to die for!! Don’t skip it! I would highly recommend to be seated upstairs unless you are looking for quiet. Downstairs seemed more reserved.

Masks were not required just suggested. Many did not wear masks. Requested outdoor seating but outdoor was really a tented experience with no ventilation only fans blowing germs around. Food was really good, service was good but in the mist of Covid catching the virus there is very possible. So for those trying to follow the national guidelines this , at this point in time, is not the place for you.

We ate outside and it wonderful. Big umbrellas kept us out of full sun. Service was great. Very crowded so even for lunch I would suggest reservations.

It proved to be disappointing I had friends from far away and asked for a table by the window no apologies just gave us a table back from the window. We could’ve gone to a couple of other restaurants very close by and believe me the next time I will. Our service was good and our food was good.

We were a party of 4, and each person stated the following- "this might be the best food I have had in a long time!" I personally had the seabass, and it was truly the best I have ever had. Great view & ambience!!

Sat upstairs and a good place on Sunday afternoon. Food and drink was very good, service was average. Only menu options were brunch - contrary to website information.

Wish they would have told us about nice outdoor dining option instead of being inside with no view. That is the only reason I gave it a “3” for ambience.

All outstanding.
Then only issue is there unmasked over-crowding at the bar, which really should not be condoned at this time. Otherwise, a great experience.

Feel like you're in Italy

The setting for Bayside is spectacular, overlooking Venetian Bay in Naples. The ambiance and the food corroborate this romantic experience.
The service is faultless; the servings are more than adequate. From seafood to pork chops, and a flourless chocolate cake for dessert, a delicious and memorable meal.

The reason for our having lunch at Bayside is the same every time we make a reservation - it is consistently good. We can always count on interesting offerings, fresh food, attractive presentations, and quality service. All were present last Saturday. Our server, Hector, was professional, patient with us, and efficient. We had a marvelous time.

I carefully selected the are I wished to be seated and they messed up the request. Had to wait 40 extra minutes for a table. Usually a home run but this time a swing and miss.
