I picked this option as a place for a business dinner with a colleague (but not business dress), via Open Table. The live jazz was actually pretty good, and since we were seated in the "terrace" area, the music was pleasant but not too loud. An excellent wine menu, with some good pairings for a variety of foods. My colleague... More

This restaurant is located down by the Harbor Island in Newport Beach. Good menu selection with something for everyone. Nice wine selection as well. I think there is music (Pianist) nightly. Nice background music throughout dinner. Mid-range in price...

I had lunch with a colleague. One of us had the menu, 3 courses, which is reasonably priced. The other had a la carte appetizer and main dish, which was super expensive. The food is OK, but nothing special. I had the prawns, which were rather tasteless, and a soup which lacked a specific taste. So, overall, the food is... More

Bayside has become one of my favorite restaurants. We went last night for Valentines Day. We had a reservation, but decided to sit at the bar, at Bradley's station. It's a cool bar, in close proximity to the live music (piano, sax and singer). The lighting is perfect, and there is a tv at the bar for those must see... More

Live music Thursday's through Saturday - we like it all but especially enjoy Thursday night jazz. Happy hour is one of the best in town. I am fond of their Crab cakes. Great wine selection too. SERVER's Jamie & AJ are tops

We've here many times, including last night which featured the Newport Beach restaurant week prix dinner for $40. Had the soy-glazed Scottish salmon which was at least a 4/5. Banana bread pudding with a vanilla gelato was superb. Nice place for a special occasion or just a nice dinner with friends. Noise level was moderate.

Popular place with vibrant bar scene and nice music. There is a big outside enclosed area but you won't be able to hear the music too well. Make sure you specify you want to sit inside. The young Maureen d neglect to tell us the booth in the bar area is self serve and made us stand and wait for... More

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.
