    I'm 69 years old and this was one of the worst service experiences in a restaurant I've ever had. My wife agrees so it's not just me. The waitress walked by our table seven times (we counted) and totally ignored us each time. Nothing. We had to ask a buss boy just to have water poured. The waitress screwed up the wine order and brought the wrong glass of wine to my wife (well into the dinner already). OMG. I should have tipped much less than I finally did. She was not rude, just incompetent and bewildered.

    The atmosphere was beautiful! It was cozy and dark. The waiters/waitresses were doing good. We weren’t check on but maybe twice. Me and my friend had to ask 3 times for service from another waiter where then he had to transfer our requests to our main server. Overall the servers were super nice and seemed to enjoy their work environment. The food was DELICIOUS! Me and my friend split a HUGE pizza and a salad and we both paid $20 a piece. The price was very reasonable for the amount of food you get. We even had leftovers. The presentation of the food was beautiful as well and I highly recommend eating here!

    The receptionist was kind enough to let me in without changing my reservation time and the number of patron in the party. she quickly found me a table and was very accommodating.The waiter was very punctual and efficient at peak hour. The food is average at best: the tortellini dish only has five or six tortellini and the mozzarella stick is good but not spectacular.

    Very disappointed in the food. Just awful. It was my birthday and the bill was close to $200 for my husband and I. Milanese was tasteless and had no capers despite menu saying it was lemony with capers. So very disappointed.

    Atmosphere and service were excellent. Drink menu is varied and fun with lots of options. The menu had lots of options from salads, to pasta to pizza. Our appetizer and desert were very good but we were a little disappointed in the Milanese entree. Still overall a very good experience and we hope to return to try other options.

    The cuisine at this restaurant is the best vegan cuisine I have had anywhere. The appetizers and the entrees were flavorful. The only drawback was the quality of service. Our waiter was okay but the bus person was in great need of training. The entrees were brought to us before they cleaned the table and we had to assist in clearing the plates out, It was kind of dumb. Hopefully their service will improve.

    Service was good. Beet cocktail was delicious. Food was ok. Portions were decently sized but flavor wasn’t out of this world for the price point. Overall I appreciate that the restaurant exists but think it’s expensive and not incredibly delicious. (I’m a vegetarian).

    Great ambiance. Food was tasty but not healthy at all. I found that it was not a veggie forward experience, relying instead on pasta, bread, and sauces. Lots of opportunities for improved service. For example, the waiter never checked in on us, and when things came there was nowhere to put them because the table hadn’t been cleared. Also, service was slow. We were there for two hours.

    This was my second time here in recent weeks. The first visit was underwhelming but felt compelled to give it another chance as I so enjoyed the restaurant when it was Jardinee. Well, this second visit was very disappointing. Despite the reservation it took 10 mins to get seated and then it was a good 10 mins before anyone else approached the table. The service was incredibly slow, the menu was out of some items even though we were there at 12:30pm! I will not be in a hurry to return anytime soon.

    This was my first experience, after hearing about it from a friend. Absolutely delicious! So good that it will be our go-to place, whenever we are in the area. Close to BART and still offers outside dining. I am not vegan, but would most likely choose this for everyone! Pastas and pizzas are offered gluten-free, which is nice for my GF friends.

    Baia is a beautiful restaurant with amazing food. The service is great, but be prepared for a longer meal, which we enjoyed. The waiters do not hover, they let you enjoy the meal. It felt like an Italian dinner where we were able to enjoy the courses, have great conversation and take our time. I would highly recommend Baia to my friends.

    Open table v inflexible with time changes. We wanted to change booking to an earlier time but only option was 515pm. The restaurant was not busy when we left at 630pm. This meant other plans we had to change could have been avoided Restaurant food is good enough but expensive for the portion sizes and limited service attention. Overall masquerading as a finer dining experience than is actually the case
