    Happy Hour was why we went BUT I would go again in a heartbeat! Yes, HH goes from 5p to closing at the bar. The service was excellent and prices were good. Highly recommend the Asian Chop-Chop salad, and the fusilli carbonara. Nom!

    I am undoubtedly a fan of Bayside.

    Here's why:

    - Happy hour all night (5pm to close). EVERY NIGHT.
    The small plates (around $6 to $15) are ALL very good to great. I haven't had anything that wasn't "very good" at a minimum. The Autumn Salad (pear, grapes, blue cheese, pistachios, onion, prosciutto - $7.50) is particularly enjoyable and refreshing. A glass of house wine or a foo-foo martini can be had for $6.

    - Live music. NIGHTLY.
    Every night of the week, at a minimum, a piano is played in the bar area (but heard throughout the restaurant). The pianist often isn't afraid to take (and sometimes actually asks for) requests. Note: This isn't a "dueling pianos" joint. The music is very classy and soothing. Sometimes there is a singer and/or saxophonist.

    NOTE: The crowd (or lack thereof; usually it isn't overly busy) tends to lean towards the.. ahem, more "mature" side, shall we say. I don't mind this a bit, and often prefer it.

    TIP: Don't valet. Park at Ralphs (shares the lot). It's ridiculously close.

    Bayside is more than solid for class, taste, service, and for the price, value. I have yet to sit down for dinner, but have thoroughly enjoyed the bar menu and entertainment several times.

    While riding the Ferris Wheel at the Balboa Fun Zone, you might find yourself suddenly hankering for quail and fois gras. :) If you ride the ferry over to Balboa Island and then cut across to the bridge to the mainland, you'll be very near Bayside, a successful staple of upscale local cuisine. Sadly, the bay view is only in its name -- Bayside has no views to speak of -- but the food is consistently spectacular. Every time I go, I have to talk myself out of ordering the venison again, and I must plan for at least a couple bites of their bread pudding. Not so much a hip restaurant as a classic one, you can easily host a business luncheon here or your grandmother for dinner.
