We were out of town visiting friends and had dinner at Bayfront Grille. We often eat here when in town. The Bronzini fish was very good but had a number of missed bones in it. I have never had bones in my Bronzini from other restaurants. Otherwise, it was a little dry but not overdone. My husband had pork barbecue which fell off the bone and our friends had a filet with corn soup and crab cake with a bowl of corn soup. They were both pleased with their selection.

We would recommend Bayfront Grille to all of our friends!

Food was terrific from appetizer to our main course. Service was very good, very attentive. Was a bit noisy in the restaurant but that could be because its located in the hotel lobby. We also sat right by the door to the patio which was quite windy when the door was opening and shutting. I enjoyed the dinner immensely, the food quality and quantity were perfect.

The cost of the food is not worth it. Nothing extraordinary about this restaurant to justify the price.

Food was pretty good. My steak was cooked a little bit more then I like, but was still okay. My girlfriend and I sat outside, it was a very nice view on such a beautiful day. The place itself is very nice, and very kind staff. Value is okay, a little pricy, but was worth it, being it was a special occasion.

Service was great. Food arrival was a bit slow, we were not in a hurry. This is not a dine and run place. Take your time and enjoy the Bay.

Didn't realize this place was dog friendly and there were a lot of mild mannered dogs outside so I want to bring my dog next time I come. Loved the atmosphere and service. Only two minor complaints. The waitress took away the drink/dessert menu every time I ordered a drink so I had to ask for it again (you would think to increase the total cost of the bill she would leave it there). Also the sun was shining right in our eyes and I asked to move tables and for an umbrella and they said you have to reserve a table and specifically ask for an umbrella. No biggie but was unaware of this when I set the reservation. Otherwise, great time!

It took over 90 minutes to get our food and only because we ask our waiter where is our order after sitting there for 90 minutes. It was awful. The waiter was great not his fault. The managers have the restaurant understaffed in the kitchen and dining area. They are standing around and not helping. This was a FRIDAY night too.
There was no special effort to apologize like a comp drink or the spoken word. Then when I asked to have open table credits be credited. The mgr didn’t know how to do it. We left for another event and I had to call to see if they could credit the points. It was just not a good experience

Excellent location views at waterfront level overlooking bay. Food was very good. The only disappointment to our party was was that on the menu for side dishes it lists "Truffle Fries". Our party of four were excited to see these fries on the menu and consequently placed orders. However the fries are not accompanied by Truffles but rather parmesan cheese. Quite misleading.

My wife & I celebrated our first anniversary here. The place is beautiful & the view of the lake makes it even better. The place was busy but not loud. The menu offers a lot of variety, most of which are things you don’t often find at restaurants. I felt compelled to try something new instead of sticking with my usual favorites, which were also available had I wanted them.

This is a mixed review. If you all you care about is the food, the food is very good. If you want ambience, get a table outside on a beautiful evening and there's none better. But my criticism is that this is Sheraton Hotel that puts itself out as one of the tops in the chain. And the service in the restaurant is equivalent to a chain, big-box restaurant. And it's very noticeable unfortunately. Worse, I don't the management really cares because I've brought this up to them and things have not gotten better. I'm hoping they read this review and act. If the service improved, this could be a 5 star rating.

This restaurant was acceptable in all respects, however there was one annoyance: two of the breakfasts when restaurant was not busy were served with two ingrediants missing - bacon and hollandaise sauce. Mistakes were rectified, but it took longer than desirable.

Hadn’t eaten there in awhile and wanted to make sure salad was same as last time. I asked the waitress and she told me it was how I remembered. When it came it was a completely different salad. I did not eat it and they left on bill. Very disappointed:(

Honestly I love the location but the bar setup is insanely amateur, the service is embarrassingly bad, (I was at a table of service industry veterans and their heads were gonna explode) All of this is a distraction from one of the most uniquely beautiful settings in the country. After being seated 50minutes after our reservation, we were ignored for another 30 minutes and got our own drinks at the bar in the meantime. We were told by a server we weren’t her responsibility, only to find out later that we in fact were. Admittedly she was great and tried to make up for it, but the management is at fault for an overwhelmed and under trained staff. 830 reservation finished up at 11 with courses served out of order to hasten delivery. Hire more people! Train the staff! Great location!! Terrible parking (fix that garage system to pay on way in ffs)

Only really would recommend to someone else for the atmosphere. It was such a beautiful view from the patio, but the food wasn’t all it should have been for the price and it took forever. Small menu, not a huge selection at all. Service was great at times but then slow on others. When I made the reservations I had a couple special requests, and you could totally tell they didn’t read any of them! The view was worth it, but everything else was just average.

We reserved via Open Table about 20 minutes before we arrived. When we arrived, we were told we could be seated outside, our preference, in 10-15 minutes. However, 25 minutes later, we were still waiting. We approached the hostess who offered us inside seating at that point, and we accepted.

Food was very good. All 4 of us were pleased with our dishes. Chef was accomodating for food allergies. Menu does not have allergen-friendly meals marked.

Staffing seemed to be poor, as it took a long time to get our food and the check. Appetizer came out quickly, however. Very nice setting with lake view! I would visit again as long as I have a while to spare.

The hostess was great. The food was fantastic. The server was TERRIBLE. I believe his name was Christian. Took 10 minutes to take drink order, 15 minutes to get drinks, soup was cold because food took so long etc. Noticed other servers bringing food and drinks much faster. Definitely a bummer.

Highly recommend this restaurant. I am allergic to shrimp so the staff offered to have the Chef prepare my food which normally had some shrimp in it in a completely clean prep station with no shrimp content. I realize this is not that unusual but the quick and caring way in which the accommodation was made when a waiter simply overheard me stating my allergy was terrific. Great atmosphere, reasonable prices, wonderful staff.

I really like the Bayfront Grille. They do have a limited menu, but anything I have ever tried there has been very good. My favorite menu item is the crab corn chowder which is the best I have ever had anywhere! Because the weather was so pleasant, which does not happen much in Erie, we dined outside next to the water which was very enjoyable!
