My boyfriend and I had dinner here and loved it. Fantastic food and experience. ASK FOR LAUREN, SHE'S AWESOME! We got the seared yellowtail snapper and the broiled lobster risotto both were amazing. Paired with a nice red cab.

Poor Service, mediocre food. Not worth the price. Limited menu, overall bad experience. Waiter would disappear, no matter what was needed, we would have to wait.

Love, love, loved this restaurant. Make sure you go around sunset to get the full effect, you won't be disappointed. Make sure you make a reservation though.

Good afternoon Chuck, We love your enthusiasm! Thanks for the wonderful contribution! As we move into season, I would absolutely recommend reservations weeks in advance as we tend to remain extremely busy all the way through April and into May. Thanks again!

We (party of 10) ran in to get out of a rainstorm, and the staff was awesome! The manager brought us over towels to dry off and got us seated right away (even though we were soaking wet). All of the staff was fantastic and our server Duane was spectacular. He even chatted up my very shy 7-year-old. The food... More

A magnificent setting, but a little short on service. We had reservations for 8, outside. Turned out to be a very cool windy night, so we asked to be seated inside. They acted as if this was unexpected. The restaurant was not crowded and it should have been no problem. Don't order the Osso Buco, it's better at Fernando's in... More

My husband booked Baleen for my birthday meal this evening as we are staying at LaPlaya resort. It was an excellent meal served by Wayne, who thoroughly entertained us. The lobster bisque and crab cake starters were very good. The yellow snapper entrée was beautifully cooked. My husband thought the chicken skin on his meal was too salty, but overall... More

We celebrated a 50th birthday here and this the most perfect place --they have everything: wonderful food, amazing service and it is located right on the beach. We dined outdoors and watched the sunset and the staff brought us dessert for the birthday!

Our dinner was so over cooked it was almost inedible. Our service was great though. I heard that they hired a new chef. I sure hope he does something wonderful because that place is so beautiful and a great place to watch sunset.
