An excellent recommendation by the Hyatt Regency concierge. Nice view of the bay. Food was great. Rack of lamb was outstanding and scallops were very good. Nice presentation of the food. They provided a free dessert to celebrate our anniversary, which was a surprise and really nice.

Huge thanks to the staff-had a delightful meal- followed by what was supposed to be a shuttle to a nearby concert venue. When the shuttle was a no/show, they arranged for a valet attendant to drive us over and back in the owners car. WAY above and beyond-we're raging fans!

Yes, the food was very good, nice presentation, service was excellent ( server was Mavie), reservation easy to acquire and was on time but there was not any 'Wow' factor to the place. And not that there has to be but something to separate it from the big chains like a Fleming's would be a treat. The filet mignon was... More

I went with a group on a Saturday night and was treated to a wonderful meal. Our waiter Larry was outstanding and made wonderful menu suggestions. We all left saying we would definitely return.

Excellent spot for dinner. One night we ate inside, three nights later we ate outside. Same waiter (Sora) and he remembered what the 3 of us had to drink!! Impressive. Food both Seafood and Filets were great, they pour a great drink and the atmosphere is cool with a view of boats etc. You should go there

My husband, son and I had made a reservation for Sunday brunch at 1:30. When we arrived, we were told the only table they had available was behind a piano and the singer that performs during brunch. I asked if there was any other table available and was told we would have to wait a long time to get another... More

Who would think that the best venison my husband ever ate, could be had in Newport Beach CALIF at the Bayside? Well it was just superb. But even better was the Octopus appetizer - very unique preparation that was a feast for the senses and NOT too filling. The Halibut was perfectly cooked but a bit bland. Nice wine selections.

Very nice restaurant with a great location. Atmosphere inside is great, also looks out to Balboa Island and some beautiful houses. The happy hour here has some really good items that are decently priced. It can get a little busy on the weekends and sometimes you will need a reservation, but overall I've always had a really good experience at... More

We had a terrific dinner last night of perfectly cooked crab cakes and a grilled salmon filet over bok choy. The menu has a variety of choices including steaks and rack of lamb. When you go, ask to sit on the bar side. A small trio or a pianist is always entertaining. The bar side is a "scene" , the... More
