Love the small plates

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.

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

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

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

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
