great stop for special occasions

A well served delicious meal. Good sized portion that were cooked perfectly to order. Not exactly a value place but at least you were not disappointed with the experience. The piano lounge was jumping next door is you wanted some fun after dinner

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner here on our last night before heading back home. The server was friendly, and we listened to her recommendations, all of which were fantastic dishes. They have a nice wine menu, and the live music was enjoyable. We chose to sit in the dining room versus the bar side to avoid excessive noise from the performers.... More

We recently hosted a large party at Bayside in Newport Beach and had a wonderful experience. The Catering team handles large parties like ours, which started at 25 and ended up being 31. Bayside graciously accommodated several late changes and pulled it all off with ease. The food is the star attraction, and definitely did not disappoint. My salmon was... More

Went to the Bayside with some friends and as soon as I walked in, was struck by the nice decor and ambiance of the place. It was the evening the electricity went off, and I was shocked with their causal attitude, like a bunch of kids, it wasn't their fault type thing. My friends had ordered for restaurant week..not cheap,... More

There are some places where people go only to eat. There are other places where people go to have a dining experience. Bayside has been known as an upscale restaurant and in my several previous visits, has provided an enjoyable dining experience. Consequently Bayside was a simple choice for our group of seven, each of whom was celebrating a special... More

We had a lovely dinner here for a party of 4. Everyone raved about their food. I had the duck which was excellent It was a very generous portion so I ended up taking half home. The others had Chilean Sea bass, filet mignon, and sirloin steak. We were celebrating our daughters birthday so they brought a complimentary chocolate cake... More

I would say over all this place was worth the visit. The service was excellent, though a few errors happened along the way. I will say that the price is high for the quality of food received. This is expected in this extremely spendy region of California, but overall, I would try a few other places before coming back here... More

Four of us had lunch here today, for a Christmas get-together, and were disappointed in the service, the noise, and the food. Granted, a Friday with many office parties happening, so the reason for the noise, but the service was almost unacceptably slow, having to ask for one coffee refill several times. My squash soup was presented nicely, but not... More

We arrived at 5pm on a Sunday. Parking lot was nearly empty, but they still required that we valet park the car. A bit strange considering we had already parked. We were seated by the hostess, but she didn't leave us any menus. It was about ten minutes before we got menus. The waitress was new and kind of unsure... More
