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

Went to the bayside for thanksgiving dinner with my family.. let me tell you it was amazing! From start to finish the service was amazing our waiter was friendly and attentive but not all up on you. The bussers were even quick and very nice. My wife and daughters ordered the thanksgiving dinners and my son and I choose the... 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

The food is ok but not outstanding. The wait staff is good, on top of things for the most part. There are two older middle aged grey haired/balding men and an old faded blonde lady that seat you and fawn over a few customers but treat everyone else with disdain. Last night folks with reservations were made to wait 45... More

Another good place for family dinner including teenage boys. Portions meet the boys expectations. Choices on menu satisfy all. Food quality excellent. Table spacing makes conversations private and heard by all. We will definitely go back.

We had no expectations and followed the reviews and we were very happily surprised. At first noticed the crowd was a little older but in general we received great service and all the plates we ordered were delicious. Don't hesitate to go....

Once again, the better half and I stopped into a place for something lite. Once again, we ended up at a place where the service says enjoy and the menu says . . . "Define lite". The Sunday Buffett selection was absolutely astonishing. I could have ordered it all which made the final decision a rough one. The Buffett started... More

I've been to this restaurant three times in the last year, visiting from out of town, and each time it's perfect. The service is impeccable, the food excellent. It's on Newport Harbor so snag a table where you can watch the boats.
