We have found Baleens to be the best waterfront dining in Naples. It's a spectacular setting at sunset and after dinner you can enjoy their beachfront firepit if you are lucky enough to get a seat. Excellent food. Top notch service.

This was our first time in the rest for Dinner. It's beach front and we could see the sunset from our table and the ambience was quiet/relaxing. The service was good too, attentive and knowledgeable (no unnecessary interruptions). We were celebrating my boyfriend's birthday, so he got a free dessert and it was delicious (no singing). It was kind of expensive, since the food was good but not out of the extraordinary. It is definitely a good place to have a date or a romantic dinner, is beachfront, so you can walk to the beach after the meal or sit by the firepit enjoying cocktails in the evening...

Right on the beach, Baleen is a lovely restaurant with outdoor seating where you can watch the sun set over the ocean. The food was fabulous and the drinks were innovative and delicious. Our wait staff was very attentive to all our needs. I would recommend Baleen for a special occasion or a romantic evening. When nightfall comes, tiki torches are lit and there is a lovely fireplace where you can sit and have cocktails or simply watch the sunset. We enjoyed our evening immensely.

We traveled about 45 minutes to Baleens and it was worth the trip. Very enjoyable dinner. Cocktails were original and we loved them. Nice relaxing area to enjoy cocktails and watch sun begin to set over beach. Sat for dinner as sun set. Spectacular view! Dinner was very good. Service was excellent. Desserts very good also. A very special night. Give it a try for a special occasion.

This restaurant food was way overprice, a basic 1/2 bottle of wine was $40.00, you could buy it for $7.00 at total wines, yes I know that restaurants make money on their drinks but that was ridiculous. Service was good. Will never dine there again...note this is the only time I have ever written a bad review of any restaurant.

We had a reservation,"which we arrived an hour early to. We could not go into the building because of fire alarms. When we got inside we sat outside for a drink and what we thought would be a quick snack. An appetizer took 45 minutes to come to our table, during which the fire alarm went off again. When we finally got sat we ordered quite quickly, our order took over an hour to come to our table, with our soup taking 25 minutes. It was disappointing.

The restaurant should have never been open tonight. It was like Gordon Ramsey's kitchen nightmares. Never seen anything like it. Hopefully they clean up their act because we have gone here many times before without issues. Service was horrendous, management was horrendous, the chef must have left the kitchen. Let's hope they clean it up and it never happens again.

I was quite surprised that it was so difficult to get a reservation at 5:30. We arrived at 5 just due to our time table and sat at the bar until 5:30 when we were guided through an empty restaurant to our table. We sat outside and the staff was extremely attentive when we thought we heard a creature in the bushes. Since it turned out be a cute , little bird we simply enjoyed it. That is until a fire alarm went off and we were forced to evacuate even our outdoor seating for at least 20( maybe 30) minutes until the all clear was given. We were then reseated but inside this time because we had gotten overheated sitting out on the lawn in the sun while we waited. Evacuating for safety is excellent and necessary but when the alarm went off again for 10 minutes or so we knew it was a faulty system. The staff gave us no explanation but told us we could remain seated. We spent the rest of our meal with the alarm going off over our heads making conversation less than ideal. These things happen with electronic systems and the staff was very apologetic for the inconvenience. Apologies were wonderful but a compensation such as a free drink, dessert or even a cup of coffee would have been appreciated. Our waiter was wonderful but clearly the management did not give him the freedom to offer this to their guests. I know this is a Naples favorite but this adventure did not impress me except for the beautiful view. I would go back just for that.

We went early for happy hour. Happy hour bar menu very limited.
They have a 3 course meal for $45. The choices were good. I had the skirt steak, and it was seasoned well. Extensive wine list.
There were 6 of us, and everyone was happy with their meal.
The view was outstanding. Great view of the sunset.

am sad to say I was very disappointed with our experience. The service was way below average, it was a struggle just to keep our water glasses full! Took our daughter there to celebrate her birthday, and while the view was spectacular, everything else was not. It was like there were too many people running around, but no one knew who was supposed to be doing what! At the end of the meal they brought my daughter a dessert and the writing said "happy anniversary " the waiter just kinda laughed it off like no big deal! He should have never brought it to the table! I felt like he was pretty "checked out" for the whole meal. Needless to say we won't be returning anytime soon.

We ordered three salads and the grilled shrimp on two were cold and cooked earlier in the day with three salad dressings tasteless. The salmon had no flavor. This is the third time we visited and the view excellent but food very disappointing.

everything was wonderful but was disappointed when the other couple we were dining with needed mosquito repellent and had to pay for it....most restaurants will have this for use of their guests dining and drinking.

Wonderful! I was introduced to Triple Tail fish and it was delicious. Pleased and surprised to have had the Exec. Chef visiting tables and asking how the food was. Karoly, our waiter was friendly,informative and professional.

We recently celebrated our wedding anniversary at Baleen. The food was very good, the views of the beach were magnificent and the service was excellent. Cosimo, our waiter, and the rest of the staff were professional and extremely attentive. Thank you, Baleen, for a wonderfully memorable dinner and evening.

This was a very special occasion for my girlfriend's birthday. They did a wonderful job of preparation for our dinner, during our dinner, and followed up beautifully to send us home with smiles. It was well worth the expense…

Cosimo was our server. He was excellent and a pleasure to speak to. He reviewed the menu with us and we ordered what he suggested. It was phenomenal. My husband and I never get out since we have two small children, and the night was spectacular. We enjoyed every moment.
