Had a drink at the friendly bar. Thought the restaurant would be very upscale and dressy. It was not stuffy, had good service and enjoyed the evening.

We brought some out of town guests to Baleen for the Christmas Brunch based on recommendations from folks who'd been there for a regular meal. It was expensive and almost inedible. The seafood at the raw had been prepared too far in advance and was on the verge of spoiled. tTe prepared.dishes in the meat area were either overcooked or... More

My husband and I had a lovely dinner at Baleen during our Anniversary weekend celebration. We dined there twice, the first night we ate in the bar due to the cold weather, yes cold, it was 58 degrees that night! The second time we dined at Baleen, we dined outside, it was chilly outside but they had the outdoor heaters... More

I wanted to celebrate my birthday last week at a special place. I was given the "La Playa Resort" by a patient of mine (Hector Breton). He said I would not be disappointed, He was absolutely right!!! We were a little worried as it rained last Wednesday but we still managed to have a wonderful time. Our waiter Chris took... More

Sorry to rain on the parade, but our experience in service and food was less than average. True, location, sunsets and busy ambiance is hard to find anywhere and Baleen is matchless for that, but our waiter was sloppy, careless, could not be worse, obviously undertrained how to serve. Ugggh! I watched other waiters, did not seem to have the... More

We visit Baleen Naples every year and are never disappointed. The view is great and the food is excellent. The entire staff is friendly and attentive. Our server Cosimo was friendly, took time to review the menu, and anticipated our every need.

We dine at Baleen each winter and are always appreciative that they honor our table requests; there is no better place in Naples to view the sunset and enjoy a beverage and an excellent dinner. Our party of seven enjoyed our meals very much; excellent service was provided by Milos who was friendly and professional. Highly recommended.

Ok, I must review this wonderful place. Even though I think trip advisor is a giant scam taking advantage of my reviews with their stupid point system that means nothing. I'm doing this for the user. Trip advisor be damned. If you are in the naples area and want an exquisite dining experience you must visit Baleens. No where in... More

I went to Baleen last summer with friends and knew I needed to take my parents there...and it didn't disappoint. The food is outstanding, the wine is superb, the dessert to die for (have one of everything and share), the service is excellent, but the ambiance and the view of the ocean at sunset is unlike anything you will experience....
