Friday Night at Bayside

My friend took me to Bayside recently and I'm glad we went. I wanted to hear some music and on Friday night, the piano player there was very good and had a female vocalist and a bass player to add to the atmosphere. Later on, around 10, a band began to set up, and they looked like they were going... read more

This Newport Beach restaurant is a true neighborhood gem. The food is always good and very creative. One of the best wine lists in the area and a list of scotches that will not be surpassed. Friendly and very professional staff and a warm, welcoming feeling. Live music every night. Don't miss this one.

I had the Pepper Crusted Ahi Tuna from the happy hour menu followed by a Sea Bass main course. I can honestly say it was the best Sea Bass I have ever tasted. I finished every morsel!! Only got a pic of the ahi tuna which was also awesome!

Bayside is a great restaurant for dinner. The food is wonderful and the service is very nice. The atmosphere is a little bit on the quiet side but the patio is a nice lively place to sit and enjoy your meal. I will be eating here again when visiting the Newport Beach area.

Great food and service with easy parking right by the entrance to Balboa Island. Several of us had the 3 course lunch. The food was delicious and the portions were just right. Service was spot on, not intrusive but very attentive. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed.

I was wanting a night out, sitting at the bar, drinking wine and chatting. Bayside is an up market restaurant catering to an older affluent clientele. My friend and I went on a Friday evening and found two seats at the bar. The entire night turned into waiting for a bartender to look at you, get their attention, then interact... More

Good ambience and love to sit up at the bar ordering small plates. This way you get to try so many different dishes. One thing to mention is that conversation can be a bit difficult to hear sometimes. The guy on the piano can get a bit carried away and it can be a bit loud.

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
