Important Announcement

First, our family would like to thank you for your continued support over the last three decades. Our highest priority at Bayside & Bistango is the health and safety of our amazing guests, and our dedicated staff.
At the urging of officials, and in our commitment to keeping our community healthy, we have made the difficult decision to close both restaurants temporarily.
We are closely monitoring the situation, as well as the guidelines set forth by local, state, and federal agencies, and will update you as circumstances change. Should you wish to buy gift certificates, our online shop is up and running at
Our hearts are with everyone effected by COVID-19. We truly look forward to serving you soon in good health and happiness.

New American cuisine comes to life in this custom-designed location overlooking the harbor in Newport Beach, California. Award-winning Executive Chef Paul Gstrein brings culinary drama to his inventive dishes for lunch, dinner and the enormously popular Champagne Sunday Brunch. Lunch, dinner or brunch dining may all be enjoyed al fresco on our wrap-around patio, made comfortable with built-in heaters and sun drapes.

Bayside also hosts a rotating modern art exhibit, featuring carefully selected works that enhance the ambiance, and are available for purchase and further, nightly live entertainment enriches the lavish surroundings with soulful jazz.

Lastly, Bayside provides an elegant venue for many special occasions.


JORN FOX was born in Southern California and was exposed to art at an early age by his father. He began his formal art studies in high school and later at California State University, Fullerton. As a plein air artist, Jorn has been inspired for decades by the varied terrain of the region and its people. He is also equally confident in his studio painting a live model, still life’s, and from drawing studies and photographs. Working with oils, palette knife and brush, Jorn is able to evoke serenity and stillness, movement and emotion in his works. The wide scope of his paintings includes collections devoted to the beauty of the California coast and the action of its harbors, the rhythm of jazz, abstract and figurative work, nautical series, and as gracing the invitation for this Bayside exhibit, vintage car classics.


Each evening from 4:30 pm to close, join us for cocktails and a savory California small plates menu, in the lounge or at the bar. The new expanded menu boasts an assortment of culinary choices in a lighter style with prices that range from $6.95 to $23.00 per item. It’s the perfect spot to meet after work or after a day at the beach to enjoy a comfortably chic setting and live music.
