Our food was cold when delivered and a friend told waitress before ordering that she hated garlic and was told kitchen would be sure to avoid garlic. When fish came didn’t have garlic but the mashed potatoes did. So dish was taken and when it was brought back the fish was cold. For the amount of money it was disappointing. I felt bad for my friend especially but for all of us
Everything was great, food, atmosphere, service, and live piano music.
We will return/ wonderful place!
Enjoyed sitting at a table in the bar. The piano player was great and the music was not too loud so it was easy to carry on a conversation. Service was excellent. It was restaurant week and we both ordered from that menu. It was a great value.
I used to have brunch and dinner here. This time the service was terrible . Our food took more than 45 min to come. The waiters was bad . So upset this time with Bayside. I don’t want to return there .
First time but not the last. Our waiter Mavie was great. His recommendation were spot on and he ensured that my husbands birthday celebration was perfect. Scallops were cooked perfect and placed on top of lobster mashed potatoes. Lots of lobster and 4 ex large divers scallops, my husband had the Chilean Sea Bass and stated it was like butter.
What a nice elegant atmosphere, relaxing, nice jazz music, a superb kitchen and an accommodating and friendly waitstaff. From the hostess stand to the bartenders to our excellent waiter Mavie, the people here are welcoming, genuine and convey hospitality at it's finest. We don't come here often enough, but that's going to change.
We always enjoy our dining experience at Bayside! Our food was delicious, and John our server took excellent care of us. We will be returning to Bayside for another wonderful evening soon!
Good brunch and excellent service.
Service from Nick was top notch and his recommendations were spot on. Food was very good and we will return when back in town.
Great 4 piece jazz and 70’s and younger songs.
food was delicious, service was great, nice selection of wine to choose from. We will returning to this restaurant.
Dinner was good. Food was good with the exception of the calamari which came out cold and looked like it was scraped together from whatever was left in someone else's plate. That was most disappointing for my son who was celebrating his birthday and it was the one thing he was looking forward to. In the past we've ordered that and it was amazing -- this was definitely a surprise.
Service was good except that we were anxious to get our orders moving and our server wanted to control the pace, so what we hoped would be an hour and a half was nearly 3 hours.
Lastly, they served our son a 'birthday dessert' and were charged for it, despite the fact that we ordered another dessert. The dessert, by the way, was a lava cake which seemed like it was pre-made and did not have the 'lava' effect.
The brunch was very tasty. The brisket was so tender. The avocado toast looked like a piece of art with all of the different colors. The cauliflower and curry soup was delicious, according to our friends.
Everything was excellent..food, service, atmosphere, music. A perfect dinner to celebrate our anniversary.
The best filet in Orange County!
We love bayside! We have had both our rehearsal dinner for our wedding and my sister in laws there, as well as a graduation party! And we try to just go every few months too because we love it!
Food was great, a little bit pricey. We sat and the restaurant area, not the bar area indoors and it was a very nice environment. I will be back.
We liked this restaurant. The food and service were great.
A romantic spot to have a gourmet dinner: asuitable for all-ages family groups As well. Maitre’d was warm, welcoming and thoughtful; Waiters knowledgeable and attentive; food was beautifully and expertly prepared.
Ron Kobayashi duo played singable, nostalgic jazz classics with sensitivity and feeling as well as modern jazz as an accompaniment to a fine meal.
A night to remember.
Christmas Eve dinner
Excellent dining experience. The food was delicious and service was very good.
Always excellent! Thank you for a very special family Christmas celebration
The service was slow.
food was above excellent waite staff seemed confused
No ability to rate food as we were never actually given a menu, server, or any ability to order food! We waited patiently at our table for at least 40 mins and no one ever came! My husband asked a couple hosts and they did nothing to get us service of any kind. The people around us (who seemed to be regulars) were getting their a**es kissed by their servers, but not a single waiter/waitress would even make eye contact with us. We frequently do date nights in Newport, and were thinking this could be a new dinner place for us. Guess not.
A perfect evening in every way. From cocktails to wine to live music to chilean seabass to soufflés. Complementary valet parking. Everyone is friendly and efficient.
The food was delicious! The crab cake, burger, pasta and pork chop were all amazing and the service was quick! We made it to the boat parade on time! Thank you, Bayside!
My husband and I met at Bayside restaurant 11 years ago so we celebrated annually and then go to the boat parade
I visited this restaurant before, but this time with 6 people, we tried different dishes. All were good. I will recommend this place to others.
One of our favorite places
A favorite spot. Been going here for 12 years. Service and food always amazing. The atmosphere is cozy. Pricing is fair. Never had a bad dish. Uncompromising quality. A secret jewel in OC.
So nice Bayside opens for lunch over the holidays. It's a great place for a Christmas lunch!
Despite having a reservation for party of three , after a 45 minute wait ended up having to eat at the bar. manager came by to apologize, but that was it. Food took another 45 minutes to arrive, but to be fair was excellent.
We have been there many times, but this time the service and food quality was very poor. They were "Holiday" busy and our waiter also had a table of more then 16 people. Our service was slow and food was served cold. We understand about them being busy, but not why we would have a waiter that had so much other work.
Great experience fun restaurant!
First time to this restaurant. We had brunch and all food was delicious and our waitress and servers were great, very upbeat , friendly and helpful
The lighting was warm, which we liked, and which is unusual since LEDs are being rammed down our throats.
It was far too noisy though and I got a headache trying to converse.
Between the live music and acoustics, I wouldn't return.
