We recently moved down the street from Bayside Restaurant and it is our new "haunt!" Twice now I have ordered the pork chop and this last time I regrettably had to share it with my husband - never again! It is the most tender, perfectly seasoned piece of meat I have had in a long time. I am a steak... More

Similar to Ruth Chris or Fleming's, this fine dining restaurant offers a "small plate bar menu", at half the cost of a regular menu item. The choice of appetizers and entrees is substantial , the portions are large and the food is fabulous. Highly recommended.

We live a couple of blocks from Bayside and it is by far the best restaurant in the neighborhood and competes nicely with Other NB restaurants. This is an old school restaurant. They have a Piano player and singer most nights for a couple of hours. You can sit close to the bar to hear the music or sit in... More

The ambiance is nothing out of the ordinary that you would find at any other fine dining restaurant except they did have live music with the piano which was nice. The service was great and everyone was very friendly. We had a couple of drinks which were not mixed the best. We started with the tuna tar tar which was... More

The service was fast and efficient. Due to other engagements, I had less than an hour for a quick business lunch, and our server was very accommodating. The grilled beet salad with goat cheese and a side of grilled shrimp was just perfect for lunch.

Met some old friends we hadn't seen in years so it was sort of a celebration. Service was fantastic. Bad news is the menu was a bit limited...good news is the menu was a bit limited. Made selections easier. Be prepared to spend some for your meal. A bit in the line with a Ruth's Chris/Mortons but then again, that... More

One of the best brunch I had. Its prix fixe but they do have a few or a la carte items on the menu. The prix fixe came with bottomless mimosa and comes in $30 or $36 depending on your choices of main. Both come with salad, soup or bruschetta. I had the open face burger and bruschetta and they...

Conveniently located on Bayside drive opposite of Balboa Island with easy parking. Atmosphere is nice with three separate areas to keep noise down and provided a little intimacy. The menu is not extensive, however, the food is good. The desert menu was not fantastic. The service was prompt and courteous, but the hostess station needed more experience.

We sat on the patio on a gorgeous winter day - sunny and 72. I had the salmon and beet salad which was delicious. The service was attentive. We had to change tables because we were seated closest to Bayside Drive and the traffic noise was too loud. Closer to the back was better.
