Service was terrible. Appetizers appeared almost before we finished ordering and then they brought the entrees to the table while we were clearly still eating our appetizers. Then they tried to clear dinner plates while my wife was still eating. The entire experience felt very rushed, until it came time to pay. then we couldn't find any wait staff to ask for the check.

We enjoyed the seafood apps and entrees. The highlight oddly enough is the bone broth, it's a must.

We felt sorry for the lone waiter who had to manage every table and man the bar! He remained pleasant and gracious.
The food however, was miserable. Meatballs came out cold, the grilled calamari smelled sink and were served in a burnt Tati st glass sauce of some kind. The clam chowder was actually good, making me think it was purchased elsewhere. Yuck.
I used open table to select this place, since we aren’t locals, and feel really let down.

This was our first time trying South Bay. The menu was diverse but everything we had was delicious. I had the brussels sprouts salad, which was fantastic and the scallops, which were tasty and well prepared. My husband had the tortilla soup which he enjoyed but found to be more heavily tomato based than tortilla soup usually is.
He had the branzino, which he enjoyed very much.
The tables along the perimeter of the room are well separated by acrylic dividers and the noise level wasn't terrible, especially considering how loud restaurants can get these day.
We will definitely go back soon.

I’ve been to South Bay many times for Sunday brunch and was very surprised that the service and food were not on par with ally previous visits. Waitstaff did not check on us, we had to keep calling them, food was not seasoned. My guest was not impressed. Although I would return I’m sure my guest would not.

Why do the owners of this restaurant think that dîners interested in very good seafood and decent wine want to listen to bad, loud 1970’s disco? I politely asked the waiter if the music could be changed (or at least turned down) and was told « fuggedaboutit ». Well - I will fuggedaboutit. If I’m gonna drop $150 on dinner for two, I can do better elsewhere.

Very flavorful seared tuna and soft shelf crab entries. Terrific artichokes and calamari appetizers too.
Even live music on a random Tuesday night. Loved it

The menu was extensive, and we took advantage of it by ordering small plates and sharing a main. Drinks offerings were inventive. We sat outside and enjoyed the people watching although the inside looked very inviting. Crispy Artichoke Salad was our favorite. Didn't stay for dessert as we felt rushed.

This is a solid spot that we've enjoyed many times. Food is good to very good, drinks are great with a fun cocktail menu, service is friendly and attentive, and their patio is a great place for an outdoor meal on a nice day. Puzzled by the complaints; it's not a Michelin-starred spot so maybe adjust your expectations??

Great food, good service. The tuna tartare is particularly well seasoned, the soft shell crab special very good, nice choice of draft beer and very attentive waiter. Tables outside a little close to each other if I really want to mention anything a little less upbeat but definitely will be back.
