“Awesome customer service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

Huge thanks to the staff-had a delightful meal- followed by what was supposed to be a shuttle to a nearby concert venue. When the shuttle was a no/show, they arranged for a valet attendant to drive us over and back in the owners car. WAY above and beyond-we're raging fans!

“Service and then some”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

We decided to take bayside up on the shuttle service to the Hilton reporter concert
Threes easy it works is you have dinner at the restaurant before threes concert and the offer a free shuttle

Problem was, the contracted service student show

To make it up to us, the for one of threes valets to take us in the restaurant owner's range rover. And when the concert was over, just call and the picked us up again

So with service likes that, bayside gets loyalty from us.

Food, drink and waistband
Excellent

“Enjoyable dinner but no Wow Factor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

Yes, the food was very good, nice presentation, service was excellent ( server was Mavie), reservation easy to acquire and was on time but there was not any 'Wow' factor to the place. And not that there has to be but something to separate it from the big chains like a Fleming's would be a treat.

The filet mignon was cooked as ordered and a nice cut, venison was outstanding, scallops well prepared and a generous portion. As a chocolate lover, I was disappointed there was only 1 chocolate option on the dessert menu which seemed to be sourced from a food supplier rather than made in house. It was lacking moisture and a generous amount of filling.

The server and assistants were attentive and not rushed. Live piano music was a pleasant addition.

I would recommend Bayside if you're in town. Not overly formal but feels polished.

“Great Food and Service”

I went with a group on a Saturday night and was treated to a wonderful meal. Our waiter Larry was outstanding and made wonderful menu suggestions. We all left saying we would definitely return.

Excellent spot for dinner. One night we ate inside, three nights later we ate outside. Same waiter (Sora) and he remembered what the 3 of us had to drink!! Impressive. Food both Seafood and Filets were great, they pour a great drink and the atmosphere is cool with a view of boats etc. You should go there
