The mashed potatoes were a bit cold, and because of our seating the sun was in my eyes. Next time I'll take some sunglasses. Our server was amazing she made our special date night feel wonderful. I got the salmon I don't think I would get that again.

Beautiful night for outdoor dining! Delicious filet and salmon, excellent drinks, and great desserts. Our server was super friendly and did an excellent job. Extra plus was the perfect live music. Lovely views and breezes made it even more relaxing.

The ambiance of sitting next to perfectly calm water on the bay front of Erie is actually overshadowed by the fantastic food. Also had one of the best old fashions I’ve ever had. Can’t wait for my next special occasion dinner there!

My wife’s filet mignon was great, but my crispy perch was not cooked (cold!). I was brought another one fairly quickly that was actually cooked, but it just wasn’t good. Two people at the table next to us had the perch and didn’t like it. I wasn’t charged for my meal and we were brought a free dessert for our special occasion. I know they have excellent food, so the bad perch was a surprise. Guess no place is perfect.

Responded on August 29, 2021

Thanks for your recent stay and review. We apologize for the problems you experienced with the Perch. Unfortunately, there is a issue with the supply chain and we are not able to get the quality of Perch was are used to and might have to discontinue it until things get better. We appreciate your understanding and hope you can visit us again soon.

Traveling through Erie and chose Bayfront Grill because of other reviews, outdoor dining option, waterfront location and menu. It’s within the Sheraton on the waterfront. Our waitress was the only one for all the outdoor tables and she did a masterful job taking care of everyone. The food was inspired, great price point and absolutely delicious. We could not have been happier with every aspect and will return.

Menu is absolutely awful; not what you’d expect from a pricey restaurant on the bay! Service was terrible!!! We were warned as soon as we sat down that we only had an hour before our table would be given to the next reservation! I made reservations and they suck us in the hot sun; even though all the other umbrella tables were empty the whole time! Will NEVER go back!

Went here for the outside dining and the view is great. The service however was extremely slow. 15 minutes to get water and ice tea, 25 minutes to get a sandwich, server gave us 1 beverage refill after we totally ran out of beverages. Staff was relatively pleasant but it wasn't super busy so be prepared for a wait. Food was generally good.

A beautiful setting on the bay. Service was very good. We were treated wonderfully.
It was an anniversary dinner and they treated us to a dessert. We ordered the clam/corn chowder. It was delicious. My wife got the cobb salad, which unfortunately, was rather bland. I got a summer chicken salad that was very tasty. Excellent dressing with a bit of a kick. Don't be fooled by the bbq chicken description. It was only grilled chicken, but the salad was very good. Enjoyed watching the sunset and evening sky. That's probably the best part.

I made a reservation for 8:15 so that we could be seated in time to enjoy the sunset on the patio for our anniversary celebration. Our table wasn't ready until nearly 9:00. Our server was clearly "in the weeds" and did her best to bring us water right away and then came back a few minutes later to take our order. I counted at least 4 other tables outside that she was responsible for and she said she had tables inside as well. As a restaurant industry employee I felt bad for her. She was clearly having a rough night.
We ordered calamari as an appetizer, my husband ordered a Caesar salad (brought at the same time). The calamari was inedible. It was so salty we each tried a bite and pushed it to the side (ultimately they did take that off of our check). The Caesar salad was average.
For entrees I ordered the Faroe Island salmon and my husband ordered the chorezo pasta. My salmon was cooked nicely but had very little seasoning (ironic after the calamari). The brussel sprouts were pretty tasty. My husband's pasta was served in a bowl too deep for the dish. It was greasy. Had it been served in a wider dish maybe it wouldn't have been as noticable.
We ordered dessert to go so that we weren't "those people". It was okay.
I think that they were just having an off night. At least that's what I'm assuming based on the other reviews that we read. It was just disappointing to spend so much on a romantic night out only to leave underwhelmed.

This was a lovely dining experience! We sat by the water overlooking the bay. The weather was perfect. Our food was very good and the service was off the charts. I took my husband for his birthday and because our waitress forgot to deliver (or didn't get the message) a requested surprise dessert, the hostess generously comped a delicious dessert as well as after dinner drinks!
