It is enjoyable to go to a restaurant that cares about your experience, exceptional service and exquisite food. This is one of our favorite places to go and get spoiled.

“Amazing ! Don't miss it !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2014 via mobile

What's not to like ? The food was absolutely delicious, the presentation of the dishes very pretty and they had an outstanding wine selection. The table decoration was very nice (fresh rose, candle) and the view on the water wonderful with a terrific sunset. And the staff could not have been friendlier. This restaurant made our night !

“A gourmet dining experience in Lincoln City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2014

We were recently in Lincoln City for my wife's birthday and wanted to have a special dinner. We read the reviews on Bay House, and frankly doubted that it could be as good as some of the reviews suggested - we were wrong. We phoned the day before to get a reservation and the host was charming. We actually arrived a bit early for our reservation, and were seated in the bar while our table was made ready. Very nice bar with a live guitarist and excellent drinks. Our table was ready (on time) and was oceanfront as requested. We opted for the fixed price menu for the evening so that we could try the many things on the menu. With it was a suggested wine flight, and when I inquired about it with our server, he assured me that he could surpass the published wine flight for the same price or less. We took him up on it, and were very pleasantly surprised. His suggestions included glasses of wine thru the appetizers with a bottle of French red for the entrée. The food was excellent - smoked duck ravioli, sliced duck, beef medallions to name a few.

The restaurant reminded me of the old Aqua restaurant in SFO - exciting mixes of flavors, excellent service, and a beautiful location.

Not inexpensive, but by far the best dining experience in Lincoln City. We look forward to our return.

“Wonderful place to celebrate important occasions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014

The only thing I dislike is the pricetag. Service, food and atmosphere are top notch. Like the title says, save some money and splurge on a nice anniversary dinner. Grab dinner and propose later on the beach. Have a happy birthday meal to remember. Great place for such a small community.

“outstanding food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2014

Neighbor to Neighbor dinner in the bar area is a fantastic value. The view of the water, the service and the quality of the food are terrific. Be sure to order the charcuterie!! and also hope they are serving the corn and salmon soup.
Service is wonderful and the owner is welcoming and attentive. Don't miss this place--the N to N program (if you don't have reservations for the dining room) offers superb food at a very reasonable cost.
