This is by far one of my favorite restaurants in OC. It has a great location because it is just a short walk away from Balboa Island.
They are famous for their Champagne Sunday Brunch, (it's Bananas!!) At $27.95
you get ALL YOU CAN DRINK Champagne
and a 3 course meal with your choice of a starter, main course, and dessert.
Seriously, everything on the brunch menu
is good, but I always order the:
Sautéed Tiger Prawns and Asparagus Risotto
and Warm Chocolate Soufflé Cake with Hazelnut Ice Cream
They also have an awesome dinner
and happy hour menu, (sorry I couldn't find the menu.)
Happy hour is every night from 5-7pm and includes a California tapas menu. With items priced at $5.95
, it's the perfect spot to chill and enjoy live music after a day at the beach or to meet with coworkers after work.
And wino's we call all rejoice!!! Bayside has a glass wine cellar that has over 2,500 bottles of wine from around the world. They even let us try out 5 new wines every Thursday 5:30-8pm, (first come, first served.)
They also have a patio with built-in heaters and sunshades so eating outside is actually really nice. A tip for small dog owners:
if you let them know in advance they will allow you to bring your dog as long as you're ok with eating outside.
I give this restaurant 4 1/2 out of 5 stars for all they have to offer; great ambiance, good food, and an abundant selection of drinks. Even my family seems to agree...as we all left full and happy...Scooter included.
