I had lunch with a colleague. One of us had the menu, 3 courses, which is reasonably priced. The other had a la carte appetizer and main dish, which was super expensive. The food is OK, but nothing special. I had the prawns, which were rather tasteless, and a soup which lacked a specific taste. So, overall, the food is... More

Bayside has become one of my favorite restaurants. We went last night for Valentines Day. We had a reservation, but decided to sit at the bar, at Bradley's station. It's a cool bar, in close proximity to the live music (piano, sax and singer). The lighting is perfect, and there is a tv at the bar for those must see... More

Live music Thursday's through Saturday - we like it all but especially enjoy Thursday night jazz. Happy hour is one of the best in town. I am fond of their Crab cakes. Great wine selection too. SERVER's Jamie & AJ are tops

We've here many times, including last night which featured the Newport Beach restaurant week prix dinner for $40. Had the soy-glazed Scottish salmon which was at least a 4/5. Banana bread pudding with a vanilla gelato was superb. Nice place for a special occasion or just a nice dinner with friends. Noise level was moderate.

Popular place with vibrant bar scene and nice music. There is a big outside enclosed area but you won't be able to hear the music too well. Make sure you specify you want to sit inside. The young Maureen d neglect to tell us the booth in the bar area is self serve and made us stand and wait for... More

Happened onto this place purely by accident. Sold out - offered a seat on the patio under the heat lamp. Are we glad we stayed. Excellent chocolate mousse made with real cocoa. Great value.

We were hoping to find a nice restaurant even though we did not have a reservation and luckily found this place. We sat at the bar and had a beet salad and a salmon with lemon risotto. The beet salad was one of the better ones we have had and the salmon was also top notch. The wine prices were... More

I know I am going to make some folks mad because it is impossible to find a seat at the bar lately at Bayside. However, if you get there early, snag a seat, you are lucky lucky! Don't go unless you are a picky wine and food snob like me...but you can get Frank Family Chardonnay by the glass and... More

We were greeted by the rude hostess, old enough to be our mom, who immediately informed us there was limited seating options that night. And pointed out our seating options as the bar, awkward high tops, and two person tables awkwardly positioned in front of a booth in the lounge. Hubby and I decided to sit at the bar and... More
