Beautiful sunset view

My husband & I wanted a dinner at a place with a great view and we found it. The food was wonderful and the service from Chris & Cosimo was top notch. Will definitely go again next year.

My husband and I really enjoyed our dinner. We shared the crab cake, my husband ordered the filet mignon and I had the lobster risotto.

We had a very nice dinner here while staying at the hotel. The food was fantastic, with imaginative fish entrees, among other items. The setting is very nice - sort of "Old Florida," with white walls and traditional ambience - and if it hadn't been cold it would have been a nice view of the ocean. My only beef -... More

Where else can you have a really first class meal with your toes in the sand? Baleen is it. Eight of us dined there Friday evening, enjoyed the sunset on the beach as we had cocktails at our table, and then had a tremendous dinner. The gnocchi with a lamb ragout was incredible. The tuna tartare sublime. The fish couldn't... More

Lovely outdoor seating with torch lighting. Very relaxing and inviting, right on the beach. Three of us had the lobster risotto which was excellent. The lobster was cooked perfectly and paired nicely with our Helfrich Steinklotz Alsace Grand Cru Pinot Gris. We topped it off with the chocolate liqueur cake, yum! The service was impeccable. A very nice evening watching... More

Four of us enjoyed Sunday brunch here again. We are regulars to this lovely hotel and ocean-side dining room. As usual the food was excellent. Mimosas and a Lobster Cobb Salad. They were wonderful. However the service was painfully slow. Maybe they were understaffed. The girl in grey at the front desk is worse than useless and should be retrained... More

The outdoor seating at this restaurant is truly beautiful amd romantic. My wife and I shared a pinot grigot which was wonderful. My wife said her food was fantastic. I had ceviche which was excellent. My main fish course was very very good. Service was impeccable. It was quite expensive, I guess because of the setting. If you are staying... More

The outstanding food and service at this restaurant really sets it apart! Cosimo, our server, was an amazing. He was an absolute joy and made the evening perfect. We had an amazing sunset and the night was perfect. The scallops were to die for! Do not leave Naples without a sunset meal outside.

Love this place, the view, the ambience and the food but all of that was diminished by our waiter who tried to add extra things to our bill. My husband and I ordered from their pre fix menu which had 4 courses at $42.00 per person plus we both ordered a small cup of soup $8.00 each and drinks. When... More
