Sunday Champagne Brunch 11:00am-2:30pm
This restaurant is located in a beautiful boutique hotel, and is located directly on the beach. It is best to eat outdoors, gorgeous view. The food was delicious, and the service was attentive but not intrusive. We had a romantic dinner to celebrate a work related event, and enjoyed every moment.
Baleen is one of our favorites. The outdoor seating is perfect, overlooking the Gulf. The service is always friendly and attentive; and the food is wonderful.
Grewat service .. .. great ambience
Food was wonderful
Wonderful lunch outdoors on the beach! They offered a lovely special 2 course lunch menu for $22 that also included a 4 oz glass of wine.I dined with a party of four. We had nice cocktails, two had the salmon and two had the sliced chicken orzo bowl. Delicious and filling. Perfect way to spend an afternoon.
A great meal and beautiful view. Always a great meal.
Excellent view and overall experience. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Service was a little slow at first.
Place is lovely 😊
Hit this place every time in Naples
We loved this restaurant! The outside seating, fabulous view of the ocean and the food was out standing!
Our waitress Patty was fantastic. Great service! Highly recommend this restaurant.
Food was outstanding! Service was not up to the usual Baleen standards.
We have been visiting Naples for the last 10 years. Baleen's is a must at every visit. We noticed some drop in menu and service when the restaurant changed hands last, however, we are very happy to report that they are back to their old excellent service. Prix Fixe menu is a good value. The lobster bisque is excellent. We also recommend the shrimp risotto and key lime pie to finish. We do wish that bread would be offered without charge with the prix fixe meal, however, this is minor. We will be back and recommend that you give Baleen a try.
The lobster rolls and lobster bisque are must-trys!
Fantastic! It was our anniversary and our server, Dwayne took great care of us. Was some of the best food in town and definitely the best service we have had!
This has been my go to place for friends coming in from out of town. You can't beat the view and the creative and delicious food is always a hit. There is just something about dining on the water! Waitstaff is friendly, just wish you were a little closer to Lely Resort!!
Cant beat the view and great waiter. Grouper wonderful.
We always go there for the ambiance but the food just isn’t great I wish it could be better food. The selection is fine but it’s just so so. It’s either too saucy or rich or fishy. The bread & butter is tasty but you have to pay extra. Our service was fine.
I think the prices are the only issue I have with Baleen. It is terribly overpriced for both drinks and food. I will not return.
The food was outstanding! The view cannot be beat if you get an outside table. It is right on the beach overlooking the Gulf. The staff was excellent, professional and friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant. It is not inexpensive, but worth the price for special occasions.
We have been to Baleen several times. The food and service is always fantastic. Love having dinner on the beach.
Fantastic place to treat your senses. Food , service and ambiance is excellent. Jorge was one of the best waiters. We try to get there whenever we are in Naples.
Meal was not as hot as I would’ve liked.
Server was very attentive
I know the restaurant can not control the weather but they seemed unprepared to move people inside when storm approached. We have dined at this restaurant dozens of times and so disappointed tonight. The inside dining room is not suitable for a pleasant dining experience due to poor acoustics. We were miserable with the noise level. Always have enjoyed outside dining. We should have cancelled but were at restaurant before weather came in and our order was already made. We may try again when outside dining is available but never for indoor dining. It was my birthday so made it more disappointing.
We had a great birthday for my husband!! Food and service was great. I highly recommend!
We had a reservation and they made us, and eveybody else, wait for almost 45 minutes, even so they had lots of empty table. They tell everyone to go have a drink at the bar.. extra revenue, I guess. The wine we ordered was not available, at the other table they served a wine and when they asked for a second bottle they where out! How about telling, before you serve the first one. Not to mention that their wine list is a tablet, that could be easily updated with their inventory.
The food was acceptable, but nothing notable, especially for their prices. Fish was dry, only side was mashed potato, not even a green leave or something to decorate. I guess they only survive because of their fantastic beach location.
The server was fabulous. A big thank you to him.
We come here for years, and every time we come back to give it another try it is the same old. We will only go back for drinks, they are actually very nice and you can view the sunset.
Best views in Naples great servers and great wine
Baleen is beautiful. Sitting outside in the fall and catching the sunset is a Naples must. Food is delicious and service is first rate. Most of us enjoyed the prix fixe dinner and that is a good value if you want 3 courses.
Excellent food and great location, sunset view was excellent. Price was a little high but the view made it worth it.
Although our server was very good the kitchen must have been running behind. The appetizer was very late as was dinner. We sat at the table at 7:00 pm and didn’t have dinner served to us until around 9:00.
Although we don’t like to be rushed, this was much too long to wait.
We have lived in Naples for a few years and this was our first visit. Food and Service were excellent. The sunset and ambiance was perfect. Will definitely go again.
Always beautiful over there ....
Beautiful setting right on the beach. Food and service were outstanding.
Atmosphere outstanding as well as the food. Service was excellent!
Beautiful setting right on the Gulf, the food was fantastic.
Food quality excellent and food service excellent. The bread pudding desert was fantastic.
Love this place the ambience is amazing . Do not quite understand why you are charged for bread this is certainly something that could make you not want to go back .
We had a 6:45 reservation arrived at 6:35 and was told to go to the bar till our reservation time. Now no one was seated in the restaurant everyone was outside on the patio we wanted a table inside. Soooo why could we not be seated when we arrived and have our drink at the table. One of the ladies was handicap ....hostess needs to be educated
I loved everything from the ambience to the server to the awesome food! The sunset is spectacular!!!
It was my wife and I’s first wedding anniversary and Baleen was amazing! Our waiter, Christopher, was great in all aspects and even took our picture during the sunset. Will definitely be going back to Baleen again in the near future!
Our waiter Baris was awesome, the food was very good, the view amazing but the cocktails were sub par. Watery and too sweet and just not very good for the price tag.
