Seafood
The Claw Bar brings chic hotel dining to the Bellasera Resort in downtown Naples. Featuring the same gracious hospitality and spectacular cuisine you’ve come to love at our original location within The Bay House in North Naples, The Claw Bar specializes in seafood towers assembled right before your eyes in our open kitchen, as well as a full array of seafood entrees, southern-influenced dishes, and regionally-inspired cuisine. The Claw Bar prides itself on using locally-grown and locally-sourced ingredients whenever possible.
*Please note that the majority of our indoor tables are comfortable booths. Please feel free to call to discuss our full array of seating options, including seating at the Claw Bar itself!
* In the event of inclement weather, we will do our best to accommodate our guests seated outside, but we cannot guarantee that they will be able to move inside if the indoor tables are fully booked.

Due to impending rain, we stopped in an hour early and went to the bar. Great cocktails; terrific atmosphere. Got seated early, and our server had great recommendations. We followed her lead, and our meal was terrific. We mostly went with the menu prix fixed, so had a great value. We will definitely return.

Not what I was expecting based on the great reviews. Came here for my birthday. Made reservations for a large party. Was not aware we were going to be seated outside. Didn't get a glimpse of the restaurant inside. No one enjoyed their food as much with the heat even with the fancy fan over us. The seafood stew was not good. Bland. I think it was microwaved. Would not recommend. The appetizers were better but not the best. I ordered my dessert with no peanuts. Still came with peanuts. Overall, disappointed. Hope your experience is better.

Lovely spot. We dined outside and it was comfortable even on a very hot evening. Food was delicious, menu with so many yummy sounding choices, Restaurant Week portions were excellent. What was very noticeable was how well trained the staff is. They are friendly and prompt and cognizant of all of the little things that make the overall experience a pleasure. From the hostess, to our waitress, food runners, those clearing plates and even who I guess was the manager wandering around checking on things....everyone greeted us and spoke with a smile. I can't remember the last time, even at very nice restaurants, that our table was wiped of crumbs before dessert. We'll be back for sure.

We went during restaurant week and food was average. We did like the ambiance and setting. Service as ok but slow; they were busy. We’d probably give it a second try during regular season.

We were there for restaurant week, and their selections were excellent. The catch of the day was prepared imaginatively and we really enjoyed it. Dining companions had different dishes, which they raved about. Dining room rather small leading to crowding and noise, but not uncomfortably so.

Intimate, stylish and classy decor inside the Bellasera Hotel. The food (apps through dessert) has exquisite flavors with perfect presentations. It's a great addition to the Naples Restaurant scene for restaurant week or year round! We have yet to sit outdoors but that is also beautiful and inviting!

So I have to say .... I had one of the best Dinning experiences in Naples that I have had in a long time!
I have worked in the restaurant and hospitality field for over 20 years, and this night went great. Service was impeccable from the host team, server to the support staff, everything went flawlessly! The food was all delivered with perfect timing and even at the exact correct temperatures hot food hot and cold food cold! Chef and the Managers all visited the table to ensure our Dinning experience was perfect!
I can’t say enough positive about our evening.... thank you again Claw Bar team for a great Birthday!

The food was excellent and so was the service. We loved the atmosphere as well. One downside was that there wasn’t a changing table. We went for lunch and had our 6 month old with us - made it very tough for changing her. Would be great if they could make the restrooms a little more family friendly!

I don't like hotel restaurants. This is worth going to, primarily because it is not a hotel restaurant; its just in a hotel. Same ownership as Turtle Club and Bay House. Food was excellent; they really know how to do fish. The staff was truly delightful, conversant in the menu and with a wonderful sense of humor. We are hooked.

Love this place. And I asked to have the outside dining “special “ table if it wasn’t too hot. Worked out perfectly. Our guests who hadn’t been there before said they would definitely be back.
