I was extremely disappointed with the food, the ambiance, the overinflated price and an incompetent male server who barely spoke English. He became annoyed when we asked him questions about the menu, wine, and dessert. The food was beyond disappointing and tasteless. The bread was cold. My pan seared salmon was dry, over salted and (yes) cold. The veggies were... More

Romantic at night. Great view of water during the day. The food is very good. Friedly staff. It's worth trying out, but it's fairly pricey. What you would expect for a hotel restaurant.

Having dined at Baleens for the first time, I must say the experience was unmatched. The beach and breezy ambience was certainly priceless, while the food was exceptionally a gastro delight. Perfect. Topping off the evening was our Italian waiter Adriano who was an absolute knowledgeable, and perfect host. He guided us through the menu with authority and provided perfect... More

We were told about this restaurant by a friend and it was described to us as fine dining. We arrived to watch the sunset which was magnificent. If you time your arrival here right you can drink a cocktail whilst seated watching the view. Once we had been shown to our table unfortunately my view of the restaurant itself changed.... More

First timers last week and had an amazing experience. The location is probably the best in town for beachfront dining and the food was really good. The Grouper chef signature dish and the Filet was amazing. But what made our night was our server Cosimo. He was an attentive, knowledgeable, and personable Italian guy and did a great job to...

Baleen may have been an upscale restaurant many years ago, but it is apparent from the quality of service and food that they are now resting on their laurels. If they expect to compete with the other fine dining restaurants now available in Naples, they need to improve on several levels. We made a reservation a few weeks ago requesting... More

1st martini was delivered in a regular glass with watered-down Belvedere vodka. The fixed price soup portion was just a tablespoon quantity. Dinner itself was very good but pricey. Insult to injury they charged for valet parking. Our waiter,Dwayne, however was excellent. We won't return.

First of all, dinner is 10 times better than lunch. The only problem is the service is awful. Whenever we go there, we have to wait for a while and the hostesses just stand there and look pretty. The food is pretty good though. Last time we were there, it took forever for our appetizers to come, then took forever... More

My husband and I had 6:45pm reservations on a Saturday night. The fact that we waited 45 minutes for our table was fine with us. The fact that we waited almost an hour for a luke warm meal was not. The restaurant had an event and 300+ reservations. The servers were apologetic and were at the mercy of the kitchen.... More
