    BAIA was fine. OpenTable was terrible. I requested a time, Openable said it was not available, when I got to BAIA, there were many tables available for exactly the time I requested. I will never use Open Table again.

    Baia is a charming restaurant and a great choice for dinner before a performance in the area. The waitstaff is very attentive too. I had the Mushroom Ravioli, which was really tasty.

    BAIAResponded 4 days agoThank you for your review. We appreciate you taking the time. If you enjoyed our mushroom Marsala ravioli please come back and try our small plate of Mushrooms with duxelle and sourdough puree.

    Appetizers were all very good! Mains were a different story- pizza was bland, rigatoni too hot to eat- even after waitress insisted they could make it mild- risotto with pesto was just okay. Desserts never arrived and we had to rush so just paid and left! Service was very spotty but some food was tasty.

    Setting and service were great. The “small plates “ were fantastic- great flavors and presentation. The 2 entrees we had (lasagna and margarita pizza) were so-so. The pizza dough is great. But the sauce and cheese lacked flavor. The lasagna sauce was very pasty and the overall texture of the lasagna was just off.. squishy. I was very unimpressed particularly considering the premium prices.

    BAIAResponded 4 days agoWe appreciate your feedback, thank you for taking the time to review us. We are glad to hear you enjoyed the small plates & atmosphere, will work on some of our dishes for a better experience for all. We hope you will join us again soon .

    BAIA used to be great. My husband and I loved the garlic knots and lasagna (one serving used to feed us both!) Portions have all decreased and taste differently, cheaper ingredients probably. Overall sad to see this place go downhill.

    BAIAResponded 4 days agoHans, Thank you for your review, we take all feedback to heart. At BAIA we use fresh ingredients from Italy to provide the best experience possible. We hope you will return to try something new and tasty on our updated menu.

    Went right when it opened so we were the first people in there. Place was picture perfect since we had the whole place for ourselves for a little bit. Ordered a paloma, some apps and the “chicken parm”. Everything was delicious. The patty of chicken was round so I wasn’t expecting it to be like chicken, but texture wise it was like chicken. Taste wise it tasted better than chicken.

    1) Food was the biggest disappointment. The best item we had was the mozzarella stick starter, and it went downhill from there. The charred broccoli starter did not taste charred—it was steamed more than anything and the seasoning was not evenly distributed. Next, was the ravioli. It was incredibly sweet, to the point that we were eating a creamed corn dessert. We could not finish this dish. Then, was the parmigiana. The chicken cutlet was soggy—as if it was freezer burned. If I wanted frozen food, I would buy a TV dinner for a fraction of the price. Additionally, the pasta sauce that came with it was incredibly salty. It felt like some bites contained a spoonful of salt. Last, we were under the impression that the lemonade would have butterfly pea flower (which is blue or purple), but the beverage was a plain yellow. The discrepancy between the menu and the items received was jarring. 2) The bathroom was a little messy, and the handicap stall did not have any toilet paper.

    BAIAResponded on January 16, 2023So sorry to hear this. We like to think we are better than this and clearly need to be. We will take your feedback to heart and learn and be better for it.

    Despite having a reservation we were given awful seating. It was two circular high rise tables awkwardly put next to each other. We were not provided with enough menues. The food variety is also lacking very iconic Italian dishes. There’s no traditional pasta either. Drinks were very water down for their prices. I don’t think we’ll go back here.

    I want BAIA to win because there are so few plant-based finer dining restaurants, but the place has been uneven from the start. Consistently on our 5 visits: - The kitchen is all over the road. Things arrive too soon, too late, or oddly grouped. - Dishes vary in quality, especially the doneness of pasta dishes, of which there are lot, tending toward being overcooked. And, less frequently, the waitstaff can seem very overloaded. I still plan to go to BAIA but we've learned to sit at the bar where we can have more input when our order is going badly. Come on, BAIA, you're going more than running a restaurant, you're a key part of recasting plant-based dining beyond bare bones hipster cafes, to appeal to a broader swath of diners whose take on plant-based cuisine can make a big difference.

    BAIAResponded on January 10, 2023Hi Brian, Thanks for hanging in there through our growing pains. We are looking forward to a new menu rolling out mid month which we believe will a positive change for all the items you listed. Thanks for your support and feedback.

    This was our second family meal before an event we've done at Baia. The food was excellent. Ther mafaldine was marvelous, the pizza funghi was perfect, the roast broccoli was really fresh and flavorful. Service was super friendly and attentive and fast, so that we had no problem having a relaxing meal before our show.

    I guess it didn’t dawn on us that Baia was a vegan (plant based) restaurant. We saw chicken and spicy sausage on the menu so it threw me. Turns out both entree were indeed vegan only. My wife and I are not vegan but we were both pleasantly surprised at how flavorful and tasty our entrees were. We had the crispy polenta small plate, Cesar salad, spicy sausage and pepper pizza, pappardelle marsala, and the ciochocolate dessert. Wow! All wonderful. Even the latte with oat milk was a surprise first. So whether your vegan or not, Baia is a great meal! Our server Sofia was also very attentive and patiently answered our questions about the vegan menu Well done!

    My wife is allergic to dairy and soy so it's hard to find a good place to dine out. The staff here is very attentive to any special needs you may have. This restaurant "checked all our boxes" for service, ambiance, food quality, location (just steps away from the opera house, civic center, etc.), and there's a great parking garage next door.

    The food was excellent (although the broccoli was a little bit tough -- but still delicious) and the service was impeccable. They brought the wrong main dish, but were very apologetic about it and let us keep the wrong one to take home. We're not strict vegetarians but are so happy that there is this excellent vegan venue that's a perfect blend of casual and formal. The non-alcoholic beverages, while not extensive, were also very, very good and fun "cocktails" for non-drinkers. (Thank you!) And we're very glad the beautiful Jardiniere space has remained virtually the same. On NYE, they also played some very fun music! It might just become our new NYE destination tradition!

    So let me start by saying the people that work here are fantastic my waiter was super friendly and accommodating and also the manager I believe checked on us to make sure everything was going well which we appreciated; we did NOT like the food it’s all a gimmick with fancy words the pastas were definitely not made from scratch it was like something made out of a box and I will say we ordered two pastas and both were mediocre, MAFALDINE was not a dish for us it was essentially lemon pepper seasoning I was hoping for something less salty and something more creamy and flavorful also the rigatoni had good spice but again the pasta was lacking something. They comped our dishes which is much appreciated but to sum this up this isn’t the place for good pasta. Good drinks tho!

    BAIAResponded on January 1, 2023So sorry to hear you didn't care for the pastas, but we appreciate the feedback nonetheless. We are re-working our menu for mid January so check back. We believe you'll like the changes.

    Last night was our first time at the beautiful Baia, unfortunately we were sat next to a loud group of about 12 guests that overwhelmed the atmosphere and took most of the service with them. I understand, but even my own waitress couldn’t make out my requests. Food was mediocre, the ambience is very pretty and hip, if I sat somewhere else maybe my experience would have been better.
