Nice setting, very good food.

It had been a long time since I've been to baleen so we went early to take in the beautiful view over the harbor. Sat in the bar and had a cocktail before we went to dinner. The bar is great and service was friendly. Great martini! Dinner we sat by the window and looked over the boats with a nice breeze coming in the window.
We had the most delightful waitress who made the experience Even better. Blt salad is crazy good! Sour cream ice cream for dessert was really nice.
Great all around experience, felt like we were on vacation... Will be back soon! I'm a wine collector and was happy to hear they have a low $15.00 corkage!

Great spot for cocktails
The bartenders make some really great cocktails, all made freshly. Delicious. Food was good, we ordered tapas-style, and the price was very reasonable. All about the drinks, for us. We still talk about it.

A Great Discovery
Baleen is in a pretty and quiet location overlooking a harbor. The food was great, easily surpassing most of the area restaurants we have gone to. Jeff, our waiter, provided wonderful service. He was both friendly and very professional. The bar area is a bit separated from the eating area and although we didn't go there, it looked as if the people there were having fun. They have great happy hour and food specials every day. It is definitely a place I will return to often.

Chic place in Redondo Beach
I was very impressed with Baleen Kitchen. I thought the restaurant had a "hollywood" feel and the food was great. I went there for dine la and was happy with my experience. The view is beautiful as you look out onto the marina, and they even have a seating area outside on top of a mini sandy beach they created. I loved it and will be dining here again.

This place is much better than the website could ever present it visually. The decor is beautiful with various comfortable seating. The dinner was scrumptious. We had the snapper and the salmon. The garlic mash potatoes that came with the snapper was so wonderful and so was the artichokes. The dessert was so delectable. The skillet bread pudding with a scoop of creamy delicious walnut ice cream we shared was so decadent. If we would have had not been so full from the meal we would have ordered more. The entertainment that they had on a Friday eve was awesome this group kept us happy with dance music. We had so much fun. Most of us were on the dance floor most of the time. Thanks for providing such wonderful entertainment.
