BALEENnaples Ratings and Reviews
Einen solch chaotischen Service haben wir in den 15 Jahren,die wir in Naples wohnen,noch nicht erlebt.Als regelmäßige Gäste beider Ritz Hotels und anderer Spitzenreistaurants sind wir doch besseres gewöhnt.
Das Essen selbst war ok für einen Sonntags Lunch.Der Kellner irrte mit meinen Ceviche durchs ganze Restaurant und es landete erst auf meinen mehrmaligen Zuruf hin an unserem Tisch.Die Weinkarte musste zweimal geordert werden,doch es vergingen quälend lange Minuten bis es zur Bestellung kam.
Der Gipfel von allem war jedoch das Valet Parking.Ich bekam als "Sonderpreis" 5 Dollar statt 12 berechnet mit dem Hinweis der Beschwerdemöglichkeit beim Manager.
Natürlich war damit das sonst übliche Trinkgeld hinfällig.
5 Sterne Hotel?Gewiss nicht!
Wir bleiben zufriedene Ritz Carlton Gäste eine Meile südlich.
This was our first time at the restaurant and we couldn't have been more pleased. Baris our waiter was particularly attentive and paid attention to our needs. We ate outside at sunset and we got up between our appetizers and entrees to view a great sunset. Baris made sure our food didn't arrive until we were ready. A nice touch. The food was among the best we've had in Naples, presentation and taste were excellent. We trusted Baris's recommendations and were not disappointed. A great meal and a great dinning experience. We will definitely be back.
Baleen is a nice, casual hotel restaurant with a diverse menu. The outdoor dining is very nice, and the inside room is casual with a nice ambiance. There are some very good dishes on the dinner menu and the wine list is extensive. When staying at or near La Playa Beach Hotel, Baleen is a must for dinner.
Great experience at BALEEN! My husband and I stayed at Laplaya for a long weekend and we enjoyed two dinners, one lunch, and 2 breakfasts at BALEEN. All the food was great with perfect portions! Eating outside with a view of the beach was beautiful, especially during sunset! I would recommend bug spray if planning to eat outside at night, though! Dwayne Johnson (our waiter one of the nights, not The Rock!) was phenomenal and could not have been more welcoming! The manager, Courtney, was very present and was friendly and checked in with all tables! All the service we received was timed well and pleasant and again, great experience with the food!
The food is too complicated and too many spices mixed up. There is a difference between the menu description of the dishes and what you have in your plate. We enjoyed the lobster cake, ceviche was poorly executed with 3 pieces of fish, tuna was great, chicken-pinable too weird, crème brûlée was a chocolat crème. Overall too expensive for the value but the real catch is the view and the location. So beautiful!
We loved our dinner at Balleen. The food was delicious with great presentation. Our server was extremely knowledgeable and attentive. The view was outstanding. We sat outside and enjoyed a sunset and a wedding in the distance. This will be a go to every time we are in Naples.
So disappointed. It was our anniversary and I thought this restaurant would be fine dining. It's not. No table linens, and very noisy. Food was average and way over priced. We ordered a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc and they brought out a 2014. A little old and very expensive. We questioned the waiter about the year and he said that was the only year he had. Service was okay. Felt rushed. Won't go back. Poor value.
Service was fantastic, Dwayne Johnson ( The other "Rock"!! Lol ) was superb , attentive and had all the the answers about the menu . I look forward to dining at Baleen in near future and will be requesting Dwayne as my waiter . As a side note the food was awesome and they catered to my wife's allergies without hesitation and she was grateful because the beet salad they came up with was amazing.
We visited Naples and I wanted to find the perfect spot for my husbands birthday dinner. I had researched restaurants and kept circling back to this one!
I made reservations for my husband's birthday & ended up having a few of our friends join us! Pricey restaurant, but good portion sizes, excellent food and the ambiance was superb!
Our waiter, Cosimo, was a friendly & answered questions, without hesitation, regarding the menu. Exceptional waiter! Would certainly recommend to anyone looking for a fine dining experience!!
Very disappointed. The white umbrellas were very dirty looking. Everything looked old and warn out. Staff could have looked more enthusiastic and more appealing. My burger was great but my husband lobster had no taste and the lettuce was chopped to small . Everything really needs to be updated
Baleen came highly recommended by a friend. The food quality and view exceeded expectations. Our server was excellent. We sat outdoors for a sunset dinner. All was great with the setting except that the ceiling fan above us was barely working. It turned out that the lack of air circulation made us more attractive to flies when our entrees arrived. I think we were the only table that had this issue. (We were the only table with a very slow fan.) We dealt with it for the 10 minutes or so that it took to eat the entree. When finished, the flies went away and we were able to enjoy the rest of our time at Baleen. Compliments to the chef for a fantastic signature grouper! Was it all worth the price? It was the most expensive meal ever for my wife & I (in 17 years), but the quality of the food, the view and the fact that we were on an overdue vacation; made it worth it! I'm thoroughly convinced that having a good fan above or a nice breeze outdoors, it would been a 10 out of 10-experience.
Very nice anniversary experience. Service was attentive. Food was excellent. My steak was prepared perfectly, a fact I cannot say about the two famous and popular sreak houses in the Naples area. The view did not enter the picture because of the rain. No sunset viewing. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
