"First time there. The service was very good. We didn't really get a lot for the costs, compared to many other places....environment was too in the lobby type place for nice feeling of dining...so smallish servings for the price.
Great waiter however!!"

"Bay223 is a nice place for conversation. It is quiet, low-key. The food is expensive, but not too far out of line for high-class san Francisco hotel restaurants. The wine flight featured totally forgettable reds and whites... out of six wines, one was adequate, the others spittable. The food was imaginably prepared, well presented. The hanger steak was tough -- not at all a good steak. Service was impeccable, low key and appreciated."

"Service was 4-Star. have a lovely meal here if staying or just live nearby! Bread Baked in-house. Perfect Pesto w/ Breadstix. Generous and beautifully plated Tuna Tartar. Perfectly Seared Scallops with Pillowy Gnocchi in Complex Lobster Sauce was over-the-top delicious! Dessert was a flight of fancy French pastries and bubbly--perfect!"

"Quiet and comfortable atmosphere. It's a great place for business as well as causal lunch or dinner. Request to be seated at their booths to add more privacy. I always do. Nice food, nice service. Always enjoy going there.
Parking at the hotel parking lot with plenty of space and validation adds another star to this place.

"As always, when I think of French food, Hotel Sofitel first comes to mind. The food is exquisite, the scallops are to die for. We also eat there for Mother's Day Brunch. It is expensive, but worth it."

"Pretty good french food and good wine list. One thing that's not so obvious when looking up the restaurant is that it's inside the Sofitel in Redwood City. One of the few nice restaurants open past 9pm in the area. Recommend!"

"It's a nice place with validated parking inside Sofitel. I have been there many times. It's contemporary and cozy. I love the booths for small parties when you get some privacy. They offer a menu with decent selections. I tried the Mediterranean vegetarian rice which was delicious.
All other dishes nicely done, except that I wish the bread they serve would be warm/hot, but it was cold.
Nice and caring service.
It's a great place to chat and dine.

"My husband and I had an outstanding dining experience three weeks previous so we looked forward to once again dining at Bay223. Previously we asked and were seated in the 2nd dining room, much quieter and more enjoyable for us. It felt like fine dining. This time we were told it was closed and we were seated in the first dining room, adjacent and open to the bar. It was very loud and very bright. We asked for a booth and were led to a table that looked over the bar. We insisted on a booth and it seemed like a major imposition to give one to us. The food was still outstanding but the experience was not as relaxing and enjoyable as before."

"We met a friend for dinner and enjoyed the quiet atmosphere as we could converse without having to shout. The service (Benny) was excellent as was the food. Our friend is a picky eater and usually leaves most on the plate, but she ate everything on this occasion. The salmon was excellent as were the desserts. The place has a nice outlook toward the lagoon outside. Parking in the hotel garage was free. No need for valet parking, which is $20."

"Amazing hospitality! Delicious breakfast! Sam greeted us at the front reception stand and treated us as if we were royalty. We had tried to use the Open Table app for our reservation, but couldn't. We took a chance and went over to Bar 223 anyway. Best move of our day. Sam. The manager of this restaurant, explained that there was an issue with the Open Table system, which he had resolved by the time we arrived, but you'd never have known it by his calm demeanor. We were able to place our reservation on OT and enjoyed a fresh, hot, delicious egg white omelet. Fresh rolls were offered. Fresh, hot cappuccino. Bright, open space. Comfortable banquets to relax and spread out in. No pushy, hurry-up attitude here. Our server Anna was helpful, friendly and made sure we were comfortable and had what we needed. We will be back again. Sam and his team really understand restaurant hospitality. Thank you."

"Such a disappointment - we have liked Bay 223 for many years for their excellent croissants and strong coffee, good (not great) cooking/consistency. But came for lunch with friends and everything was indifferent, tasteless, mediocre. The croissants are now the semi-starchy kind instead of the beautiful delicate Parisian-style. Service was well-meaning but poorly trained. We won't return."

"Pricey, like most hotel restaurants, but better than average food. You're sharing dinner with people on expense accounts attending a conference or meeting. Menu is nicely laid out with good variety and annotations for vegan, gluten free, and lower calorie meals, which I appreciated. The wine list skews to the high end, as expected in the greater Silicon Valley area, but there were 3 relatively inexpensive wine flights and many wines by the glass. We had good meals but I have higher expectations at this price point."

"This was the Mother's Day brunch. We had enjoyed non-holiday brunch many times before, usually seated in the booths overlooking the water. But on Mother's Day the brunch was served in the ball rooms, on ordinary tables and straight backed chairs. It was self serve. Buffets are like that, and that's OK, but when I asked for coffee I was informed that coffee was self serve too (it doesn't work that way normally.) In short, it felt like a cafeteria. Since the web page that advertised it included a picture of their cozy booth, it was a big disappointment."

"We love Sunday brunches and this is one of the best. It was our first time and wondered if it would be worth the drive from Walnut Creek - it was! Will definitely being going back for Mother's day brunch now."
