Nice view over the marina. We decided to choose different kinds of appetizers because they we´re half-prized during the happy our. Two for each person were enough and all of them were very good.

We unexpectedly ended up at the Bayfront Bistro for my birthday dinner. We had stopped in at the publix in the same parking lot, and asked workers there for a good recommendation for seafood. The mentioned this restaurant. We would never have discovered it, without their recommendation, for it looks like a private marina. We were so pleased when we... More

We were going on a cruise and came here to get dinner before the cruise. It was extremely expensive and the food was not good. Big disappointment.

We visited the Bayfront Bistro on Mother's Day. The restaurant was very busy and the staff was a little unprepared. We waited for a long time and then once we got a waitress there was a mix up and it took forever to get our drinks. The food was worth the wait. I ordered the blackened grouper and it was... More

My Wife and I have been to the Bayfront Bistro several times and have never been disappointed! Start off by getting a table outside overlooking the harbor, so you can watch the dolphins ducking in and out between the boats while sipping on your favorite wine! Appetizers, you can't go wrong with the Asian Calamari or the Ceviche. I have... More

So, we have been here many times. The food this time was wonderful and our poor waitress was great. We dined Monday May 1st, but we waited an hour for our food and our poor waitress was in the weeds, while the rest of the staff and waiters drank at the bar. She had five tables of three or more,...

Visited last night and was very impressed with our hostess. She went out of the way to get us a great table that needed to be cleaned when she could have sat us at another less desirable table without effort. The service was generally good though our water was not refilled and our waitress seemed stretch thin for a Friday... More

We were hoping to see a sunset but this place is on the east side of street. We had a nice dinner outside. Our server was good and food was nice. The bartender inside was very nice. We stopped in for happy hour. Great martinis

I have been at the Bayfront Bistro for a dinner with friends. The view of the bay was really nice. The menu had just few selection and I got the pork pot roast. The meat didn't have any particular flavor for $28. Everything was overpriced....too bad

We were 3 Couples going out for a special evening. We have never gone to Bayfront, but it came recommended so we made reservations and got a really good outdoor table. Good service, good company, excellent food and a pink moon made for a special evening. We all had some sort of fish dish mostly grouper. The drinks were good... More
