    The food and ambiance at Bayside is excellent. The service was friendly, prompt and attentive. We enjoyed the Octoberfest menu offerings with the beer. There is live music during the evenings which adds to the atmosphere. The restaurant offered a free shuttle to the Jazz music series at the Hyatt nearby. That is a great perk to avoid parking at the venue. After the concert, we returned to enjoy delicious chocolate soufflés for dessert and more music.

    We had an absolutely wonderful brunch here. From the host to our server, the service was amazing. They had live music that was the perfect vibe for lunch. I wanted something that wasn’t on the bunch menu and they made it for me! The food was delicious. Would definitely recommend and come back next time I’m in town.

    The food was very good, but on the Saturday night we were there, it was very full and the service was very slow. The major issue was the noise. We had to shout to talk to each other. Maybe a weekday night would be better.

    Wonderful service from all wait staff especially our waitress! She was perfect in giving us whatever we wanted ( and more!!) without hovering— very gracious. We were celebrating our anniversary, and in town without a recommendation— we felt very lucky to chose this place based on OT reviews! Drinks were excellent— we did price-fixe with each of us choosing alternate choices for first course, entree and dessert. Without us asking, she split both the soup and salad so we each got a delicious serving of both ( and the eggplant soup de jour was excellent!) Everything cooked perfectly with lovely presentation. Yummy desserts too! Only thing I didn’t care for was the mushroom crust on my halibut but my husband disagreed, so maybe it was just me!
