I would completely understand if they're understaffed, but a little acknowledgement would have gone a long way. I would have been more than understanding. We got seated and waited 20 mins until someone helped us and 30 minutes with no water. They forgot a dish order and didn't once check up on us. Aside from the awful service, the food was amazing. Everything was prepared well, great flavors and amazing execution for an all plant based meal. Great options for gluten, soy and dairy free! Highly recommend the cheese sticks!

Generous portions except for the tortellini. Canolli dough was not that nice, hard to cut, but pistache flavor was good. No wifi for clients, i asked the waiter and he said no wifi in spite of founding a network called baia guests. Overall a very good experience.

We used to love the French place that used to exist at this location earlier. However, a pretty nasty Karen server wanted to remind us how families are not welcome and how kids are a liability. She probably does not have legal training in liability law but that did not stop her and ruined entire evening. So do save your money and go where servers are not racially biased Karens who think they need to teach non white parents.

Abit over priced for the quality. It was noise and we were seated right by the entrance which was really cold as the doors was opened. Our server was ok, not the best and a lot of room to improve. Don’t think we would go back

I was put at ease right away & not rushed to order. The food is delicious: try the garlic knots. The tortellini dish was one of the best I ate. My husband went for the Rigatoni which he devoured very quickly. The desert was fab too - I however couldn’t finish mine. The cocktails were also very good! We felt well looked after and cannot wait to return!

The location is perfect, being next-door to the parking garage and just across the street from the opera house. The service is always good, and the bartenders mix very good cocktails.

We wanted something close so we didn’t have to find parking twice. We thoroughly enjoyed this food. One of ladies in our group is lactose intolerant and so overjoyed with being able to eat anything on the menu. I would go there again in a heartbeat :-)

This was my second time eating at Baia, as I liked previously their Lasagna and Mushroom risotto. This time I ordered as a starter with a friend to split the "Goddess" salad, which listed as one ingredient orange sections. When the salad arrived the sections looked more like grapefruit, so I asked the server to verify what it was . After a long wait she confirmed it was grapefruit. I am on a medication which can have a serious interaction with grapefruit. I informed the server and was offered a lukewarm apology.

We ordered three dishes to share. The salad arrived with the pizza. We sent the pizza back to be kept warm and brought when we finished the salad. The pizza was then brought with the lasagna. We sent the lasagna back to be kept warm while we ate our cold pizza. One hour later after several requests, the lasagna - a second order - finally arrived, piping hot. We were told that we would not be charged for the lasagna. I was surprised by the mix-up and the hour´s delay. The experience certainly affected my feeling about returning soon. The bill arrived with two lasagnas charged which were also credited back. Our waitress was sweet and concerned about the glitches. The problems seemed to be in the kitchen.

Noise level can be a bit too much though. Sounds like you’re in a loud cafeteria. But that only detracts from the ambience. Again, the food is wonderful and worth going for.

Our server was very nice and helpful, however, the service was slow and the serving staff seemed very untrained. We enjoyed their Caesar Salad which was excellent as it was in the past. We also had the meatball appetizer which was very good. Then we had the mushroom pizza which was terrible! The crust was very doughy and not completely cooked and the pizza itself was very soggy with way to much liquid.

My friend and I always come to Baia before we go to the ballet and we have such a blast each time. Being both under 21, we absolutely love that they have fun non-alcoholic drinks and mocktails in cool glasses with garnishes. I've been a vegan for three years and am over the moon that I found this restaurant, the food is incredible and they have different options each time I come. I could not recommend this restaurant more. Food, drinks, ambiance, service, everything is stellar.

Food was very underwhelming - plating, flavours, ingredients were all meh. Service was awkward and slow. I expected a higher-end experience based on prices and reading reviews. The best dish was the stuffed pasta.

Service was poor & staff was under-trained. They should know to clear the table of dirty plates before bring new dishes, to serve everyone at the same time, and bring needed utensils before they were asked for. For a seasoned restaurateur to miss such simple process is surprising. Food is ok. Some dishes are better than others. For example, the mushroom risotto was delicious but the rigatoni was excessively spicy to taste the flavor. The garlic was missing in action with the Garlic Knots. The result was just bread and pesto sauce - bland! The meatballs fared better. Dairy free ice cream and panna cotta may be ok for the die-hard vegan. The restaurant before BAIA, Jardiniere, was a culinary institution. BAIA has a very long way to reach Jardiniere’s levels of food and service excellence.
