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...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...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...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...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.

Had the foie gras appetizer. This was excellent, although at $26 that price alone could provide for a decent meal at some restaurants. The seafood risotto "paella" was also excellent, although it lacked items like lobster or crab that we have had on this dish...More

Similar to Ruth Chris or Fleming's, this fine dining restaurant offers a "small plate bar menu", at half the cost of a regular menu item. The choice of appetizers and entrees is substantial , the portions are large and the food is fabulous. Highly recommended.
