One of the best brunch I had. Its prix fixe but they do have a few or a la carte items on the menu. The prix fixe came with bottomless mimosa and comes in $30 or $36 depending on your choices of main. Both come with salad, soup or bruschetta. I had the open face burger and bruschetta and they...

Conveniently located on Bayside drive opposite of Balboa Island with easy parking. Atmosphere is nice with three separate areas to keep noise down and provided a little intimacy. The menu is not extensive, however, the food is good. The desert menu was not fantastic. The service was prompt and courteous, but the hostess station needed more experience.

We sat on the patio on a gorgeous winter day - sunny and 72. I had the salmon and beet salad which was delicious. The service was attentive. We had to change tables because we were seated closest to Bayside Drive and the traffic noise was too loud. Closer to the back was better.

Walking up to the restaurant, was like a beautiful picture. The Dinning Room is well done and very chic. The staff was totally amazing from the moment you arrive. Just having a drink and taking in the dinning room is gorgeous. The food was excellent. We had the Rack of Lamb and the Duck. They were both cooked perfectly. Along... More

Even though it's not exactly in our neighborhood, a drive to the coast on a nice day to eat at Bayside is lways on a list of "things to do". Lunchtime is fairly quiet, and evenings more boisterouse, [due to a popular lounge clientele], but whatever time you decide to come, the food is always what Bayside is about. A... More

Although there was a rather good list of seafood , pasta, and salad lunches listed on the menu as separate items, all of us opted for the luncheon three course special for $25 a person. I had the salmon over rice with salsa.It was a small piece of fish with very little flavor, and very little rice.The green, Caesar salad... More

A perfect place for a truly outstanding dining experience. The atmosphere is relaxed, the background music is soft so you can carry a conversation in a gentle voice, even when the restaurant is full. The servers really cater to you, but the best part, of course, is the cuisine. Do not miss the unique lobster salad, a must! The perfectly... More

It's been 10 years since my last visit. My son, who I'm with tonight, was 10 years old the last time. He needed to write a report about Jazz and when he said he was coming here, I tagged along.

Good ambiance. My husband and I came for my Birthday dinner and ate out on the terrace. It was very relaxing and just what I was looking for. We were also able to bring our infant who didn't make a sound. As for the food, coming from Seattle, I have had better. We ordered the crab cake to share, which... More
