This review is long overdue – This is a review of the Pacific Rim menu that was presented for the first time at Bayport during April. The menu was mostly seafood and some sushi. Before this meal the thought of sushi was enough to make me think twice about eating anything that came from the sea. However chef Jim Kyndberg completely changed the way I looked at seafood and I absolutely can not wait to return. Thanks for the incredible experience.
hgp – We went there in July for the first time and can't wait to go back again.
The food was excellent, everything was flavorfull and exciting. Service was nicely paced out. We arrived a few minutes late, when the first course was being served and the waiter did not rush through trying to catch up with the other tables.
This is the way fine dining should be, one sitting for the entire evening.
Great Pairing of food and Wine – We visited Bayport for the first time yesterday. We definitely will return. We had an excellent Mediterranean 5 course dinner paired with wine that was fabulous. The wines matched the food perfectly.
Each course was presented beautifully and the taste matched the presentation. The portions were just right with 5 courses, there is plenty of food so you go away feeling satisfied not stuffed.
You really need to check out the menu before you decide on making reservations. If the menu does not interest you, check their web site again in a month or so.
If possible, go to dinner during the week. On a Tuesday evening, there were only five or six tables occupied.
The restaurant has a small dining area in a small building just off of Hwy 95. Nice white lined tablecloths, but I would not call it romantic.
They are a member of I-dine.
A long way to drive for not a lot – We had been told that this was one of the best restaurants in the state.
For some reason, the lighting was turned down, creating an interesting ambience. We arrived on time and then waited a long time for our food.
All courses were described eloquently by our server, but the food usually disappointed.
At over $70 a head, it was an interesting experience, but not one i could recommend.
If your looking for good seafood try Oceanaire, Aquavite or McCormick & Schmick.
Worth the Drive! – Although quite the jaunt from our home (about 35 miles) Bayport was definitely worth the drive. Ties with Goodfellow's for the quality and inventiveness of their food but is a much better value. We recommend doing Bayport's wine pairing with each course. They do a nice job of pairing the food and wine together. Ambiance is very quaint and cozy - a perfect place for a romantic, low-key evening. Portions are pretty good sized, although if you are a big eater you might go away wanting more. In our opinion, one of the top 5 restaurants in the Twin Cities!
Dining for hours. – Anything that involves eating for hours has got my vote. The menu is creative and the food is good. Very cozy, intimate atmosphere. Great wait staff. Worth the money.
Excellent!!!! – Excellent service, atmosphere and food! Have been there for three different menus and plan to go back again and again. The experience is well worth the drive and definitely worth the money.
Superb! Exquisite! Romantic! – This little gem that had previously gone undetected by my radar impressed the socks off me this past weekend! When making the reservation, I requested a veg/seafood course for myself and a purely veg (altho not vegan) course for my sig other, to which the Cookery folks graciously acquiesced. The portions might seem small to most folks' Old-Country-Buffet mentality of eating, but this dinner was all about quality and just-right amounts. The veg'n offerings were fab little creations all of their own, not at all having that entree-minus-the-meat feel that so irrita, and the seaford was superb! And romantic? Absolutely - intimate and small, dimly lit and warm atmosphere! I'd drive 100 miles to eat there again!
