Baleen is kind of place where diners applaud the sunset. It is also a restaurant that has very nice food. We were a party of three. Each of us selected three courses from the Prix fixe menu for $39. Tequila shrimp to start was delicious. That was followed by clam linguine. The clams were tender and juicy - not all... More

We had a terrific dinner and evening at this restaurant in Naples...right on the beach. It's not unusual to see Dolphins surfacing just off shore.

The view is beautiful. So, if you don't mind waiting a long time for a table, & you don't have special requirements (allergies or food you dislike), it would probably be OK. They could not accommodate food allergies. Waited hour even w reservations. When they finally tried to make up for the mess, they still brought the wrong side dish... More

Sitting at one of the tables in the sand for dinner and sunset is an unbeatable experience. My wife and I spent our first dinner date here and many, many more after. The firepit is a really nice touch. Excellent food and worth the $$
