The food was very good and the service was professional and pleasant
Lunch was fantastic. We enjoyed our meal outside on the patio. The perch dinners were delicious and had large portions. We went back for dinner and it wasn’t quite as good, but still had a nice time again eating outside on the patio. The scenery is very pretty. We went for breakfast the next morning and all they had was takeout because of COVID but it was a very good breakfast. Servers all did a good job.
Thanks for your recent visit and review of the Bayfront Grille! I appreciate your feedback and understanding during this current pandemic. We hope you can come back and visit us again soon!
The food and service-FABULOUS! I felt safe and looked like everyone was sanitizing and wearing masks! They also closed down at 2 to clean and sanitize! EXCELLENT !!
Thanks for your AWESOME review of the Bayfront Grille! I am so pleased you enjoyed your dining experience!
We had a breakfast reservation. After being seated we waited 1/2 hour and a server never came to the table at all, so we left and ate elsewhere.
Thanks for your recent stay and review. I sincerely apologize for the problems you experienced and will be sure to immediately address this with the staff.
Had reservations for 9:30am seated at 9:20 great. At 10:15 we still had not seen a waiter waitress table next to us said they had been there 2 hours and when food did arrive it was cold. My party of 4 and another party of 4 chose to leave no one even seemed to notice 8 people left
Thanks for your feedback I apologize for this situation and will be sure it is addressed immediately.
Everything was beautiful from the view to the few to the service. I had the lemon blueberry French toast and it was amazing and my guy had the Cajun skillet and said it was great!! We sat on the patio looking at the bay. The service was top notch!! So friendly!! We will be back!
Thanks for the AWESOME review! I am so happy you enjoyed your experience and hope to see you back again soon!
The food was way overpriced for the quality of the food. My omelette had no flavor. My husband and son’s sausage links we burnt on the outside but raw on the inside. $78 dollars for breakfast for three people with no alcohol. Will never return
Not a great place for lunch as the menu is limited to just sandwiches and 2 entrees. The sandwiches are no different than any other restaurant except they're more expensive. The dinner entrees I've had are very good though.
The only issue with our experience was conduct of the staff members. When we arrived at the reservation desk 2 female staff members were finishing their personal conversation in front of us for quite some time before acknowledging myself and my guests. Also, an argument was witnessed between 2 staff members by one of my friends on the way to the bathroom. There was an overall somewhat unprofessional vibe given off by those staff members referred to.
Great outside lunchtime
Patio closed before our order was taken due to unexpected rain storm. Our server accommodated us inside the Sheraton's bar area with takeout option. Burgers and truffle fries were delicious!
We had to sit outside because of COVID regulations and during my lunch it started raining hard. The waitress did not go out of her way to get us an umbrella and acted annoyed when we requested to move to a table with an umbrella. I understand there is not much they could do in this situation but, acting rude to a request for an umbrella so I didn't get rained on while eating my meal was not necessary or appreciated.
Our service was sooo slow!! And our food was cold.. my husband for a perch sandwich instead of perch dinner never seen waitress back to tell her issue. The food was probably good if it was hot. Very disappointed being this is the second time we have been there to eat and food was cold and service stunk.
The view is amazing , our waiter was very attentive and polite. The food was awesome and the price was reasonable.
We had an absolutely wonderful experience eating on the patio at the Bayfront Grille! The setting is spectacular, the restaurant's operation is first class, and the food and service were terrific. Without a doubt, they have the best perch sandwiches around! It was so good to get out, and eating at such a lovely place made the evening absolutely perfect. Thanks to the Bayfront Grille for providing us a much-needed return to normalcy.
Food was amazing and so was the service. Very reasonably priced for such a great dinner and the view is gorgeous. We will definitely be back.
Beautiful setting. Great service. Wonderful for Sunday brunch.
Initially, our experience was lovely. We were seated by a pleasant hostess at a table with a view of the bay.
Service: Our server came over a few minutes after being seated to take our drink orders. She was very abrupt but we shrugged it off as she was busy and trying to accommodate all of her guests. However, as the evening progressed her attitude increasingly became worse. We watched her raise her voice to other patrons who had limited English but were trying their best to order. She wasn’t being helpful but just continued to repeat the same thing over and over very loudly. She continued with the same curtness throughout our interactions during our meal. When we were done with our meal and the check was brought over she asked my husband who had the to-go boxes if we needed a bag. He said we did not. She turned to me, who did not have any to-go boxes, and asked the same. Before I even had an opportunity to answer she raised her voice and started making hand gestures as if I were intellectually impaired and said “you know a bag.”
Food: For starters, we ordered the Calamari which was cooked perfectly and flavorful but the breading crumbled off before it made it to your mouth. The marinara and aioli served with it were both delicious.
We each had soup, Chicken Tortellini for my husband and Crab and Corn chowder for myself. Each were delicious.
Main Course: My husband ordered the Veal Ravioli. The veal was not seasoned at all and a bit tough. However, the ravioli in the dish was good.
I ordered the Cider Braised Half Chicken with the Sweet Onion Tart and Fingerling Potatoes as an accompaniment. My meal was delightful. The chicken was flavorful and well presented. The sweet onion tart was delicious and definitely my favorite part of the meal.
I did order desert, the Chocolate Tart, it was decadent and delicious, so much so, that I had to take half of it home.
Our overall experience suggests that we probably will not dine here again.
This would usually be a five star review but they have added outdoor dining igloos- which I am sure are so fun for those in them... but for the rest of us in the dining room it was almost unbearably cold because the wait staff had to keep opening doors to seat and serve igloo patrons.
Reservations were very easy to make through Open Table for the time we wanted. We were seated promptly at a very nice table overlooking the water. Waitress was attentive throughout the evening. We ordered a couple appetizers, and they were very good. We ordered the brussel sprouts as an appetizer, and they were amazing!! The dinners were just "okay", and I feel overpriced. We did enjoy enjoy an after dinner drink (Irish Coffee and Chocolatini). Those were very tasty! For the price of a fine-dining restaurant, however, this would not be my first choice.
There are very few fine dining restaurants in Erie. The Bayfront grille is at the top of the food chain. There is an excellent range of options for all courses. The staff was attentive and friendly. The decor/lighting was modern. The views are amazing. (Window seat)
The food was properly prepared. Presentation was creative and the flavors exploded. (Seafood pasta and fillet entrees)
The price for 2 cocktails each, a salad, soup and main course and shared desert was $140 with $35 tip. It was a $175 meal. Not for everyone but it’s worth every penny. We plan to return frequently.
Bravo Bayfront Grille. You have outdone many of your local competition.
Dinner was delicious. The bison was very tender and my husbands veal dish was lovely. Our server was attentive and efficient. Meals came out timely and hot.
We had reserved a high top for 2:30 on Christmas Day - when we arrived (on time) we were left standing for more than a few moments, even though the hostess said they were in a "lull". We were then seated at a small table for 2 near the kitchen door....not the high top we requested. There seemed to be enough servers, were brought water promptly, but waited for our drinks from the bar to be brought. We ordered and the food was very good - but my entree never did come. The server was apologetic and packed the food for takeout and took it off the bill. It just seemed that they were not that busy but there were delays and mistakes. They were very nice, the restaurant was nice - just not up to par in my opinion.
Nice place, and great view of the bay, but service was inconsistent. The food was average, and priced a bit on the high side for Erie, but not so bad considering it is a nice hotel. We had to wait 15 minutes, despite having a reservation. We watched the empty tables being bused in no particular hurry, and others were waiting as well. Appetizer and soups were served together, despite our specific request to have them separate. Two of three entrees arrived, but the third was more than 10 minutes later, with the excuse that the chef burned the first one - nothing was offered for the inconvenience. The server was nice, seemed to lack any real concept of time management.
WE were pleasantly surprised to find a moderately priced luncheon menu. Food was good, nicely prepared
Food quality needs to be better. When it first opened, it was excellent.
We have never been disappointed at the Bayfront Grill. The view is beautiful, the servers are very attentive and accommodating and the food is amazing. I would highly recommend breakfast, lunch or dinner at The Bayfront Grill.
My wife had a wonderful dinner. Very peaceful!
Thanks for your EXCELLENT review of the Bayfront Grille! We look forward to seeing you back with us soon!
It’s always nice to sit by the window and look at the lake, and the food is usually very good. The lunch today was average. The crab corn chowder was good, the burger was pretty good, but the bun was stale, and the fries were undercooked and greasy.
Thanks for your recent stay and review of the Bayfront Grille! I will be sure to share your feedback with the Chef. We hope to see you back again soon!
Dylan provided great service for our brunch. Definitely recommend.
Thanks for the great review! I am pleased that the staff took care of you so well!
Really lovely atmosphere, attentive but not too much service, we chose lighter fare - soup du jour excellent, salads were interesting- nice change.
Thanks for your EXCELLENT review of the Bayfront Grille! We look forward to seeing you back with us soon!
There is a nice menu with vegetarian and gluten free options. Filet was good, Pork was tasty but a bit dry. Salmon was good. A long wait for the food and wait staff was not as attentive as we would hope bu we will come back.
Thanks for your review and feedback. I will be sure to pass this on to my operations team so we can correct any issues our guests experience. We hope to see you back again soon!
The service was phenomenal from the hostess to the wait staff to the manager checking in on all the tables.
The food was delectable. They asked if we were celebrating and when we said we were celebrating our anniversary they brought us out dessert!
The view is lovely and it wasn’t too loud. Perfect date night spot.
I would suggest going with the server's suggestions for the meals. The filet which was suggested; as well as the encrusted sole. My wife had the filet and I went for the rib-eye. The filet was excellent though the side of asparagus were under cooked and too crunchy (we know they shouldn't be like mush, but these were too crunchy). The rib-eye was boneless and had a significant amount of tough sinew/cartilage and fat in it. Both steaks were cooked correctly to the requested temperature (Medium) and the spices added were right. However, it took some cutting of the rib-eye to get edible mouthfuls. The sides were good and complemented the ribeye. The orange creme-brulee was a very good creme-brulee with a couple of orange segments laid on top. I would have it again and ask for the orange segments to be left off; as they were only a garnish to what was an enjoyable dessert.
Our server was attentive without hovering; suggested one dish what was and probably a second dish that would have been enjoyed if I had followed her suggestion. She suggested a wine that complemented the dishes we ordered, and prepared it for us to take away the small amount we had left at the end of the meal.
I had requested a window table to be able to see the bay for what was our anniversary dinner. It was fine; a somewhat talkative party was at a table near us; however, the overall atmosphere was good without lots of excess noise. All in all I would recommend the Bayfront Grille and following the server's suggestion; unless like me you are set on something specific that evening.
Thanks for your recent visit to the Bayfront Grille Restaurant. I sincerely appreciate your recent visit and feedback. I am pleased that the service you received was excellent! I will be sure to address the issues with the food to the kitchen team so they can connect for our future guests. Thanks again for your review and we hope to see you back at the Bayfront Grille soon!
It was just ok. Food was good, but booked this in hopes of a romantic evening as my wife and I were in from Orlando and there was nothing romantic about it.
Thanks for your review and feedback. I will be sure to share this with the operations team so that we can make adjustments for our future guests. We hope you can try us again soon in the future!
Nice experience. Good food for a hotel restaurant way above the norm. I would definitely go back. My guy & I both had steaks, both enjoyed our meal
Thanks for the positive review! We hop to see you back again soon!
A little overpriced and it is a hotel lobby, so the guests are a mixed bag. But the location right on the water is fantastic. Food is good and service was good. Nothing over the top great, but overall a very good experience.
Thanks for your review! I am pleased you received good service and good food!
Although our service was excellent and the ambiance pleasing, I can only give a moderate review because the food was somehow bland and uninteresting for the price. We were a party of three and our bill was over $135 + a very generous tip (our waiter was superb) with only 3 glasses of wine and a veal, pasta, and seafood dish ordered. At a lower price point or with more interesting food I would have given a higher rating.
Thanks for your review! I really appreciate your detailed feedback! I will be sure to review this information with my operations team and also recognize the server you had for a job well done! We hope to see you back again soon!
I reserved a table outside for my dinner. When i arrived there were only a few outside tables taken. The day turned out to be very warm and sunny so i asked for a table with an umbrella. I was asked if i asked for a table with an umbrella when i made the reservation which i did not because i had never been there before and did not know i should of specifically asked for that. I was told all the tables were reserved and i could not sit at one with an umbrella. Dinner was ok in the sun even though all the tables by us with umbrellas were not taken the whole time we sat there. Overall i felt the staff was rude and not accommodating in any way. The food was ok. I had cheescake for dessert and it was from a box. Also the waitresses and manager kept telling different tables different specials which i thought was bizzare..we werent even told ajy specials.. the only reason i would come back to eat there would be for the great view..
Thanks for your recent visit and review. I appreciate your feedback and will be sure to share this with my team. I am pleased you enjoyed the view and we hope you will come and visit us again soon!
My husband and I had dinner at Bayfront Grille last Thursday. My dinner was very good. His was not. He ordered a fillet (requested medium), garlic mashed potatoes, and asparagus. His fillet was cold in the middle, certainly not medium.
Thanks for your recent review. I apologize for the problem your husband experienced with his filet. I will be sure to address this with my culinary team so this mistake does not happen again. We hope to see you back again soon.
