Nice selection of passed appetizers before dinner. Choice of 4 entrees plus soup or salad and dessert mad it more restaurant like than a banquet type meal. Clam chowder soup, salmon, and lemon meringue tart all very tasty with ample portions. Private room has great view (although it was dark), and the staff was friendly and helpful.

My wife and I arrived at the Portofino hotel, and decided to walk across the street to the Baleen Restaurant. The restaurant's location is fabulous, with A goegeous view of the Redondo Beach Marina, packed with beautiful yachts and wheeling gulls. We showed up a few minutes before the 6 PM start of dinner service, so decided to eat in... More

First I want to say I am not the kind of reviewer that rips into places. If you look at my reviews most of them are pretty high. I was part of a large (14) group on Saturday night. I'll start at the beginning. I pulled my car up to where it said, "stop here. Valet Parking." We got out... More

I had the salmon which was succulent and delicious and when combined with the Live Blues Singer and Guitarist made for a wonderful evening with friends. The only down side was the noise level. hard to carry on a conversation or listen to the music until we moved to the Bar area.

We had breakfast in this restaurant because we were staying in the hotel next door. One could either order a la carte or choose the buffet. I ordered a la carte, Huevos Redondos. it was okay. The service was efficient.

We chose Baleen for a girls night out based on the fact that they have live music in the bar. The website also said there would be music in the Kitchen however the Kitchen isn't open in the evening, so apparently it was in the lobby bar, which we did not visit. We stayed in the lounge area and arrived... More

Baleen is a two story, attractive "restaurant" on the marina across the driveway from the Portofino Hotel. We first stopped for lunch but found a very limited menu so moved on to find another place. We did stop for very nice appetizers (they call them Tapa's but they don't bear much resemblance to the real thing in Spain) and drinks... More
