    Me encantaron los sushis de Ajinomoto. La presentación hermosa, el sabor espectacular, la música excelente y bajita. Sillas y espacio súper cómodo: celebre mi cumpleaños y la pasé excelentemente brutal. Hubo error en la orden pero la resolvieron con amabilidad.

    Casi 3 horas para servir a todos en una mesa de 17 personas reservada hace 1 mes. La mesera dentro de que trato de ser amable estaba desorganizada y venia a la mesa por cada pedido individualmente. La comida fría e incompletas (risotto de churrasco u setas sin el churrasco). En resumen no nos gusto.

    Lovely location almost on the water, easy to get to with a cheap/free valet. The restaurant itself was another issue. Service was so slow and we were one of two couples there. After waiting over 20 minutes for our appetizer we asked our server who said "oh, I never went to see if it was ready" - - of course it had been sitting there and was lukewarm. Cocktails tasted watery - not good at all. Fish nuggets turned out to be flour, fish "bits" and seasoning ground into a paste and fried. Not outstanding. If we hadn't ordered already we would have left after the appetizer. We will never re-visit.

    The food pictures did not match the food quality or presentation. A good burger(lamb) with unremarkable fries on a loud street. Ok pasta dish. We were disappointed after a long walk to get there.

    My family had a wonderful meal at Bayside! We had diners ranging from 75 to 16. The menu offered something for everyone. The team reports that the burgers were terrific. I had the churrasco and it was excellent. In terms of ambiance, I was a bit concerned when we arrived due to two large screen TVs. These were not an issue though. The volume was not set high and the ambiance was very nice. We were able to chat freely. At most restaurants in Puerto Rico, this has not been the case. We would certainly return.

    Food and service was excellent. It's not the most beautiful scene, but near to the port and a lovely evening. We loved our meal, the service, and the help of the staff. Would return if we went back!

    Excellent puertorrican food and enormous portions. The sampler plate is enough to feed four people. This will be a place we will be returning for sure. Much much better than the crowded places in front of the parking.

    Profile says Valet Parking - pulled up to the restaurant and the Valet was “on break.” Hostesses were more busy chatting than wanting to help. Definitely plenty of red flags so we didn’t eat here and had to find another restaurant on the fly.

    Our server, Natalie was fantastic. The burgers were gigantic and my coconut mojito was delicious. There were lots of screens to enjoy a game. It is dark inside, but several tables outside if you prefer to dine in the fresh air.

    New favorite place in San Juan! Loved how they transformed Local dishes into creative plates. My server Ian was friendly and knowledgeable. I’m a wine guy and this place amazed me with its selection from wines all over the world! But the FOOD was the killer! Medió con Yuca, Alcapurrias de Piñones & Ceviche. Great great atmosphere ! Love this place!

    Although we did have fourteen people in our party, our entrees took over an hour and a half to arrive. There was one other table (of 2 people) and it was still so slow. The food was great when it finally arrived though. Very yummy, but only go if you have time to kill.

    We're sorry for the timing, this is something we've put our focused on since your visit. Bayside focuses on bringing the best possible food to every table and sometimes this hurts our timing for the food, but we will keep working on it and finding ways to improve our timing without decreasing the quality. Thanks for the honesty and we hope to see you guys again. Thanks, Daniel Owner Bayside San Juan
