We heard about the restaurant from a friend that went there in LA.
We went to visit the Sunny Island restaurant, it was a Sunday, not very busy night but to receive the food and the service was very slow.

The homemade bread was amazing. The service was great. Very windy the day we went so our food was blowing off of the table. Lots of birds come to pick scraps that have been dropped around your table. There was a very high pitched noise on a speaker or bug zapper somewhere in the outdoor dining area that was very distracting. I could hear it terribly but my husband could not hear it at all.

We were only able to get a 9:45 res for Mother's day. No one told ua the brunch only started at 11am. The service was outstanding and the food was ok however we could only order from ala carte menu and that was pricey. Overall the views were beautiful, but we live here so we came for the food. The brunch menu is only for special holudays, therefore we may never be able to partake. Also there aren't any GF options so the orders had to hold the wheat and hope for no cross contamination.

I asked outside table and they wanted to seat me in.

They show on their web site nice lobsters and there’s none.

Outside glasses unclean.

Long to reveive check without people in the restaurant.

Very satisfied with all aspects of our dinner experience. We chose to eat inside due to the wind. The outside seating looked very nice too. Our server was fantastic! She was bright, bubbly, and friendly. She help us make our dinner choices and even check with the chef to see if he could create something that would satisfy what we were looking for (which he did). Yummy squash soup with added lobster. I would absolutely return.

Super delicious food, but service was terrible. It took an hour for us to get our food and we were only 1 of 6 occupied tables in the restaurant, it was not busy. I expected more from a fancy hotel. The two things they had going for them was the gorgeous view of the beach, and the food. But overall, I would not recommend.

Food was great. Service was terrible. Made a reservation and was forced to sit inside even though there were open tables outside. After being seated for 10 minutes and no one paying attention to us, another server walked by and asked if we were helped. We politely said no and asked if we could move outside. They said of course because there were open tables. The next server was very slow in all aspects. Overheard 2 other tables complaining about their service and also another lady at the front desk asking for a complaint card. Food was great! Service, not so much.

There was only one other couple in the place on Saturday night at prime time. Absolutely the WORST service we EVER experienced at any restaurant in our life!! The food was mediocre at best. It took forever to get anything we wanted.

Service was quite slow as there was only one waitress for the whole restaurant, but she was very personable and the slow service was not her fault (30 mins to get drinks when we arrived). The food was actually very good and the decor and ambience at the restaurant are quite nice. It was pricey but we did get a nice view of the ocean. This restaurant has a lot of potential if they had adequate staff.

The restaurant wasn’t busy but we had to wait at our table for 20 minutes before they brought wate, menus and the wine list. We ordered some wine, soup and mussels - it took another 20 minutes for the soup and mussels to arrived and they were ice cold. We still didn’t have wine delivered and they finally came back to say they didn’t have our wine. By now we were well into an hour at the table - we sent the soup and mussels back and decided to go to Timo’s across the street where we had excellent service and the food and wine were abundant and delicious. Skip BALEEN Kitchen and go to Timo’s!

I was hoping for the same Baleen experience that I always got at the La Palma and Grove Isle but Baleen Kitchen in Sunny Isles is not yet up to speed. Their slow service and concern with serving their beach going guests over their indoor dining guests was poor management. “It was a busy weekend,” we were told. With that in mind, you get extra help, right? The salad and fish tacos arrived 30 min later with little to no salad dressing, when I asked for more, they had run out and the chef needed to whip up a new batch. The fish tacos were descent but no big deal. The Waiter was apologetic but still, I was disappointed. Maybe with time, this location will do better but for right now, it was “eh” at best. Valet parking was the highlight. Fast and courteous service.

At Happy Hour you can have Super food and drinks at half price from 5:00-7:00 with free parking at Baleens Kitchen. The Chefs make the most delicious mussels in a tomato sauce, lobster Mac n Cheese and Sliders. Also try the steak and the goat cheese pizza. Fernando is an incredible and fun bartender. Tammy and Denis cater to your every wish!! The interior and Ocean View are stunning. A very cool vibe! Mark the DJ plays nighty and is happy to take requests. Great place to meet new people.

We had a wonderful family dinner here on our vacation while staying at the hotel. Our children are 7 and 5. The staff was accommodating to them with kid menus and crayons. The service was wonderful, the decor was gorgeous and the food was exceptional! We will be back!

If you like a seafood it is a perfect place because all restaurants in Sunny Isles Beach are mostly steakhouses. Restaurant has a scenic view of the ocean and very cozy atmosphere.

Very intimate setting with Ocean views. I was surprised the valet parking was included. The driveway is a little scary if your car is sporty with a low chassis, but our Jag convertible didn't scrape. Everyone was very cordial and although I only had a Burger, it was a great one and very reasonably priced.

I cannot understand how places like these stay open.
There were two tables with people , the restaurant was empty
The waitress was running around yelling at the bus boy , but neither one of them was doing anything.
Even filling a glass with water was an effort.

They have a happy hour that isn’t bad. We were there on a slow night and it was very apparent that the entire staff was displeased about this. The food was good. Our bill was discounted because of happy hour but the bartender added an 18% gratuity onto our bill for the original price. He told us that this was hotel policy. I don’t like being forced to tip period. It is a beautiful restaurant and I think it is worth checking out for the happy hour.

Love Baleen Kitchen in Redondo Beach CA!! Tried this counter part in Sunny Isles FL and the food and service on was on-pointe. The ocean view is beautiful and the bar is nice. It’s missing the vibe of Redondo Beach or any vibe, no live music, low energy and the bar was empty which is too bad. It was kind of a standard hotel dining atmosphere which is unfortunate because it has so much potential. :-) thank you for a nice dinner, it was delicious!

Great place I took my wife and her family to for her birthday. the food and drinks were great. The only issue was when my wife didn't get the chowder she requested the waiter got a little too snarky and sarcastic with her. But other than that everything else was good.

The decor and the whole ambiance is very nice. Good selection of cocktails and wine.
Great service!!! The food was just ok. The fish of the day was Mahi-mahi, the portion was very small and very salty.
Will we go again-Yes !
Let’s give another try !

Baleen offers a stunning indoor dining space with well appointed seating to optimize the view of the ocean. The food was creative and delicious and service was on point. The outdoor space leaves a little to be desired but with a little more polish and finish could match the interior and cuisine.
