It doesn't get any better than "double bubbles" on a Friday night at the Bay House followed by their tasting menu. The service is always first rate without being stuffy and the waiters wine recommendation was spot on.

The minute you enter the restaurant, you're treated like royalty. The dining rooms are intimate with breathtaking views of the bay and the food and service is 5***** in every way.

The view was really wonderful and service was very good and comfortable. The food was just ok, but reasonably priced.

Truly a foodie's top choice. Some beautiful views, love happy hour in the bar, and lunch and dinners are truly superb.

Gorgeous view, endearing service, and sophisticated presentation. Especially recommended: beet salad, vegetarian pasta, duck with lentils. (Less delicious: clams overwhelmed by chorizo.)

In the lounge, there is a popular three course meal. Everyone was ordering this. The lesser known deal is the full pour wine pairing. We had three terrific wines and outstanding service. Favorites in our group included the rich roasted corn chowder and perfectly cooked...More

Even the best restaurants have an off night, perhaps that is what we ran into. My wife ordered the broiled salmon, I the filet. Her salmon was raw in the center.. While Van our server made it right with an entire new dish, this should...More
