We were here recently in a party of seven to celebrate a birthday, and the experience was perfect. The food was delicious, the ambiance was elegant and beautiful, and the servers were very friendly and warm without being intrusive. First-rate experience that made the birthday celebration exactly what we wanted.

Ambience is romantic, low lights and hushed voices but they welcomed our toddler at dinner when we asked before visiting. The food was fresh, locally sourced and very flavorful. The clam and chorizo appetizer was excellent. Both the duck and steak entrees were delicious. Staff went out of their way to make sure our anniversary celebration while on vacation was special. Expensive but worth it for a special occasion.

I love to take my wife out for a romantic escape and the Bay House hits it out of the park! I surprised her on her birthday and from the minute we stepped in the door we were greeted with extraordinary service and hospitality. We were seated next to a window but it was already dark so the view was limited to the flood lights illuminating the tide plain. To our delight a large heron flew in and started feeding in the light and we asked if the heron was on staff! Our waiter was knowledgeable, professional and made our visit delightful with attention to every detail. The menu is expensive, but delicious with beautiful presentation. Make sure you finish off your dinner with the creme brulee! Wow! This was a night to remember.

Thank you Steve for a wonderful evening!

Our daughter sent us to The Bay House for our 35th anniversary. I had emailed for a reservation, reply back asked if special event, and I replied with our anniversary. We were greated warmly and congratulated on our 35th, later he sprinkled anniversary confetti on table. Soft jazz playing, real candle and rose on table. We took a booth since it was dark out, can't see the view. Waiters were the type that this is a career, very engaging and attentive. We had duck confit ravoli and Manilla clams with chorizo for appetisers, excellant. A little concerned about chorizo and clams, but the chorizo did not overwhelm, surprisingly good. I had a beet salad that was 3 types of fresh beets. For dinner my wife had the prawns and I had the duck, again both were very enjoyable and would have again. Dessert I had the Cream Brule that was as good as any I have had. A great dinner for our anniversary.

We've been dining at the Bay House ever since we moved to the Oregon Coast from Palm Springs and Napa. Steve's restaurant would succeed in either of those places as well. The reason is Steve and his understanding of what makes a restaurant successful. The food is very good, the winelist has one of Wine Spectator's highest ratings, the prices are appropriate for the food and wine with many excellent values in wine, just ask him and he'll help you find just what you are looking for. In the last year or so they have offered "Small Plates" in the lounge along with music. Get there when they open as this is VERY popular with the locals. Get there in time to watch the beautiful sunsets from the dining room!
