The food is good, but you are paying for the view. The lobby and restaurant have recently received a beautiful facelift, very modern yet still beach. We had a large crowd and they accommodated us all nicely.

We dined here just after Baleen's reopening. Knowing the challenges that they faced, my expectations were tempered. We were highly satisfied with both the service and food.

Food is good, service could be better. Eat outside on patio or beach. Best for lunch and a walk on beach afterwards. Valet parking

Ballens is a very common restaurant with no redeeming qualities to recommend. As a long time NAPLES resident and a bit of a good and service snob.. if you just have a few days in Naples, Do Not waste time here.More

We went during the afternoon of the Eclipse. Although there was only 1 other table seated when we were, service was terribly slow. The first two gals who brought the water and the bread were very punctual. Our actual server took forever to come to...More
