BALEEN Naples Restaurant overlooks the beach with a few of our tables directly on the sand. Palate pleasing options include a varied breakfast menu with a Gulf Coast twist on traditional favorites, such as the Crab Oscar Benedict or the Braised Brisket and Eggs with scallion potato cake and tomato hollandaise. The lunch menu features gourmet sandwiches and salads including a Lobster Cobb Salad, as well as their ever popular Gulf Grouper Tacos. With exceptional entrees such as the Seared Tuna with furikake, crispy sushi rice and vegetable escabeche and the Chef's Signature Black Grouper with king crab & charred corn truffle risotto cake, neonata relish and champagne citrus butter sauce, the dinner menu is truly novel. To brighten up the experience, the intimate beach fire pit and BALEEN Bar feature a fantastic wine-by-the-glass program, as well as an extensive list of martinis and classic cocktails.

Food was as expected, very hood but we were not blown away with a long list of original offerings. Seafood was delicious, super fresh. Wine selection was very good and very expensive. The view can not be beat. Service, quality of table, chairs and general upkeep of hotel, restaurant was not on par with expectation. Outdoor bar area had great high top facing sunset and excellent, quick service. In hindisght we would have stayed there and ordered dinner enjoying the same beautiful sunset while having great service.

I made reservations for our anniversary and request a table with a view to watch the sunset. Unfortunately, the gave us a table in front of a column. I request the lady in charge of the sitting to give us another table as the place was not packed and there where other tables available. Yes, she moved us to a table with a bigger column in front, so we went back to the first table where my view was a column.

The service was good but the lobster risotto was not tasteful as risotto should be. Desert was good.

We have been coming here for 15 years. First time back since remodel. Candidly, I liked the older look better as well as the food quality. Had a surf and turf and had to send back because the sirloin was incredibly tough. Also the breakfast food quality seems to be off as well... they need to review and upgrade here.

Surprised my wife for her birthday dinner. She was very pleased as was I having never been there before. Highly recommended by my coworker and was definitely well worth it. We enjoyed a pre dinner drink at the bar followed by a wonderful meal overlooking the Gulf. Our waiter Vladimir was outstanding .... When in Naples definitely recommend...

Since the remodel this place is my favorite in Naples now. Food has always been the reason to book here. Always good alsway fresh.

Took them a little long than usual but once that was resolved service was supper.

And we saw Dolphins in the water what a treat.

I proposed to my girlfriend at the Baleen. I called them 1 week before and they were really nice and helpful! They got me a great table close to the sea with a great view! The waiters were really nice. After we were done, they brought us a special desert and a rose. Amazing place. Amazing food. Amazing people. All around, the Baleen deserves a 5 stars!
