Bistro La Baia

Went to a Birthday Party at this Bistro and had the best time ever. The food and service was relaxed and very professional. George the owner was great and Lisa had everthing under control. Cocktails were served in their outdoor cafe and the four course dinner was inside. What a wonderful experience. We had the whole resturant to ourselves. Kudos

My wife and I had an early Saturday dinner at Bistro. The facility is small, but not confining. The service and food was very good. We had a wonderful time and will return again.

The wait staff wasn't happy because we didn't select our meal quite fast enough for their liking (maybe 15 minutes tops). He sent an unfriendly woman who seemed irritatted and pressured us into making a selection. The waiter forgot to bring our drinks and when reminded, he placed a glass and unopened soda can on the table. The staff made my date and I feel very uncomfortable, virtually pushing us out of the restuarant. Maybe you should find a larger space.

This place is the smallest restaurant you'll ever go to, which makes its intimate (as in familiar, not romantic) vibe that much stronger. The food isn't 5-star but the prices are definitely reasonable, they have the best warm, steamy bread in town, and the owner/waiters are excellent and friendly. btw the previous reviewer was a little off, the "lisa" they refer to is actually named "nancy" - just want to clear that up!

i've probably been to over 2 dozen byobs in phil. nowhere has been as consistent or inviting as la baia. from the smoking hot bread to the familial environement with your sitting on top of the next guy's date to jamal's frequently changing, but always perfectly memorized, specials this place is the home of too many memories and delicious food at very fair prices. highly recommend the fungi and eggplant apps. great gnocchi and chicken piccata. don't leave without telling lisa when you'll return.

Really good portions that taste great and are not overly expensive. A tiny place, so be prepared to squeeze in if it is busy. Service was decent. Oh, and I was under the impression that it was cash only...I am pretty sure that is what their website says too.

Great food, great value, very consistent. Not much ambiance, but the food makes up for it.
