Love this place!!
We had a nice booth next to the window with a great view! Enjoyed the pork belly pops and calamari to start. I had the local lobster on risotto and split that with someone who got the filet. Plenty for both of us. The truffle fries were amazing- don't skip those ! Brussels were crispy looking but not really cooked to crispy- not bad but not crispy. Our asparagus was delicious too. Our server Shea was very attentive and keep checking with us.
Phenomenal ambiance,food,service. One of the gems of OC
Fabulous dinner with a gorgeous sunset view on the water! Christina took special care of us to make our anniversary special and we enjoyed all of her recommendations! The sea bass and short ribs were outstanding! We will be back!
Beautiful table delicious food. A perfect meal.
Breathtaking views, phenomenal food and great staff. Our first time there and can’t wait to return. Thank you!!
Great food. Great entertainment. Service ok. Food server was asked for condiments after delivery of food and totally forgot.
It was awesome!!
Two years ago, we discovered The Winery and had the BEST dining experience. Superb service with multiple waiters taking care of water, bread, picking up plates and glasses. The food and ambiance was excellent. This is our 3rd time here and last time. We were early for our 5:45pm reservation, so service was good to start. Drinks were ordered and delivered, however, No bread was served. After relaxing, we ordered and the salad came, but still no bread, so I asked for bread. Our finished salad plates sat on our table for 15-20 minutes. The manager even looked at it and walked on by. So much for service.
We usually order the filet, but tried the 16oz wagu center cut rib eye, which we shared with several sides. We brought a bottle of wine and the corking fee was $35, which I found out when I got the bill. We had a split plate charge of $7.50 and the bread was an added charge, $12.00 for 2 loaves. $54.50 in additional charges, in my opinion, is ridiculous. I expected a $20 corking fee and free bread, as well as, being caught off guard for a split plate charge for the 16oz. sliced wagu.
We love Bayside Restaurant and will happily spend $200 for our fancy dinner there. Bayside has never disappointed us.
The ambiance was amazing and the food was even better. I had the pistachio crusted Chilean Sea Bass and I think it’s the best I have ever had. Will definitely be back.
Our dinner was wonderful. The service was fantastic (our Server was Shay)! and the food was delicous!
Exceptional harbor view with amazing staff. Every single morsel of food was unbelievably great. My wife very much enjoyed celebrating her birthday at this restaurant, out first time patron, but will definitely be back.
Great location but very loud in the restaurant. The Mahi Mahi was exceptional but the slow braised beef short rib was a severe disappointment and the asparagus way over cooked if not burnt. Severely conflicted if we’ll give it another try as one person thought it was one of the best meals ever and mine was a complete waste of a meal out.
Our waitress was adorable.
Our party of eight was unable to carry on a conversation because the music was so load! I needed to lean over to hear the person next to me. We had a table with a beautiful view of the harbor that was negated by the loud music behind us.
the food was better last time I went in. bad night maybe.
Food was outstanding. Booth was a bit cramped and hard to move in and out. Sit right on you. Live music which was nice but speaker right over our table making it too difficult to have a conversation. Biggest issue was several staff waiting on tables with mask sitting low on face covered nothing. If you are going to make staff wear a mask then wear it properly
Let me start off by saying, The Winery is among the best restaurants in Newport. The lack of 5 star ratings is in the details, but not anything that should keep you from dining there. A few examples over several visits. Bread order not served until reminded, extra order of gnocchi forgotten and then told the kitchen wasn't able to do it, beautiful tenderloin lacking adequate bernaise sauce, lastly service is never poor, but can get lost. I should add although expensive when compared to like competitors could be rated 5 stars in the value category.
The experience was not up to normal standards if the Winery.
Started with the prosciutto wrapped shrimp and risotto- excellent. The lobster appetizer was a bit overpriced at 35 for a few small pieces. Both salads were good and fresh. Entrees were the pistachio crusted sea bass and the duck breast- both were very good, ordered the duck breast medium and thought it was a little better than the medium rare from last time.
There was a 40 minute delay in getting the entrees, but may gave been due to pre new years dining rush and staff shortage. Overall a nice meal.
Great food and great service. Always an amazing time!
Xmas eve dinner was awesome
We really enjoyed our dinner and the excellent service here on Christmas Eve. Even though the noise level was so loud we could hardly converse, the food quality made up for it somewhat. The server was very kind and helped me find exactly what I totally love to eat. All in all a very nice experience if not a "tad" pricey!!
Food excellent as usual. Waiter a bit chippy
Seating was very tight. It was a business dinner and the tables are very close together and tight. But, everything else was wonderful.
I have been a regular patron since this location opened. Your new staff behind the bar needs a lot of help. Most importantly, the food was spectacular❣️ Particularly the Fresh Chilean Sea Bass. Melt in your mouth tender and delicious ‼️Thank you chef Yvon! 🍸
From our warm welcome by Sydney to our great waitress Shelia D all was great. It was nice that Richard came by and asked how our evening was going.
Great food as well!
Excellent every time we go there.
You keep reading about staffing issues and poor customer service.... but not at the Winery. The service from when we entered til we left was fantastic. Our table was not ready when we arrived (40 minutes early) so we sat at the bar and the bartenders were a lot of fun and provided great service even though they were extremely busy making drinks for the tables. The Sea Bass was fantastic as was the steak.
Everything was lovely. Kevin, our server, was great, timely and helpful. I requested the ahi appetizer as my entree along with a very yummy risotto side dish. I advised my server about an allergy and he assured me the entree would be served without that ingredient. I had requested a window via Open Table and, sure enough, we were seated at a lovely booth by the window! The view of holiday lights was so nice. The Winery is one of my favorite restaurants for date night.
Everything about our time at the Winery Restaurant in Newport was exceptional. Great food, great service, great ambiance. We had a great time.
Great meal tasty and high quality. That means though lots of people want the same. We booked 5:30 for 5, they accommodated a last minute 6th person. Busy times and great to see world opening up.
Great food. Outstanding Sevice
Very pleasant experience. The food was excellent. We tried the ahi appetizer, duck, lamb chops, seabass and mahi mahi, and all were very well prepared and delicious. The service was excellent. The staff is very friendly and efficient. We will absolutely return and bring our family and friends for this wonderful dining experience.
Was so loud that it ruined our experience completely.
Birthday Dinner was excellent. Very attentive service and delicious meal at every course.
The service was impeccable. A night to remember! Thank you for the incredible service. Our waitress was one step ahead, with a lovely personality.
