Three for lunch, splitting a very large and varied salumi and cheese plate, along with some fried calamari. Top it off with a nice bottle of Virginia red wine (yes, Virginia -- who knew that little secret was out. RdV Vineyards in VA makes killer Bordeaux style wines). Food, wine and service were all top notch. Ivana took very good... More

I'd searched on TA for a special restaurant to celebrate my daughter's 40th birthday, and Baleen seemed to fit the bill. This was my first visit, and I had high hopes based on reviews for a lovely birthday evening. As noted by other reviewers, there is a $5 parking fee that is payable at the valet stand on departure. The... More

What's not to like? Do you have a special birthday, anniversary, or graduation celebration? Or maybe you and your partner are deserving of a special night out? Either way, this is the place! Spectacular view of the sunset, beautiful beach and ocean steps away from your table, incredibly delicious food, gracious efficient service, and of course the beautiful weather you... More

We returned to Baleen to have a quick lunch. The entrance to La Playa hotel usually crowded due to narrow and short driveway with valet parking. Nonetheless one goes to Baleen with decent food and a wonderful ocean view with pelicans diving to catch little fish right in front of you. We had grill fish tacos, rueben sandwich and lobster...

We had some friends visiting and I wanted to take them someplace special before they left and we weren't disappointed. My scallops were perfect. Although the torches were lovely, when we go again I think I'll make reservations before dark so they can appreciate the ocean view. Service was impeccable as always.

The atmosphere - right on the Gulf of Mexico - is perfect, The food is all delicious. Our server, Adriano, is sure a handsome Italian, fun, efficient, and full of charm! Request him. We lives here, so drove to restaurant (located in LaPlaya Resort). They offer only valet parking, which I understand. Tipping the valet is no problem, but their... More

Baleen in the La Playa Hotel is located right on the beach in North Naples. It is a great restaurant with an amazing view, especially at sunset. For a birthday or anniversary, you would be hard pressed to find a more romantic, idyllic, scenic location. The location at sunset is unparalleled. The food is worthy of the price and location....
