Awesome view

Sat outside and what a fabulous experience. I had the lobster Cobb salad and it was the best salad I have ever eaten. Bit pricey, but well worth the money.

While Naples offers many excellent dining options, Baleen features one of the best views available. Enjoying dinner watching the incredible sunsets provides for a truly memorable dining experience. The well-crafted menu offers an excellent selection and the service is exceptional.

Sat outside for breakfast with friends and had a very enjoyable visit. The staff let us talk and we had a very leisurely breakfast. Nice eggs benedict. The setting is beautiful. You must valet park because there is no parking around there. They had a nice brunch set up inside but we opted to order from the menu.

It has indoor outdor and beach side dining. It gets very crowed so I would get reservations. The food was very good. It's a bit pricey

Fantastic food and great beachfront patio views...highly recommend. Fish was excellent for dinner and spices are inventive. Love the buffet breakfast with all the fresh fruits, omelette bar and hot oatmeal--all my favorites

We felt like we were in Hawaii sitting near beach and watching the sunset. Food was great (except for Kale Beet Salad). Service was very attentive and location can't be beat! We were sat immediately by friendly hostess, and approached by a friendly waiter who actually seemed happy to be serving us. Everyone's dinner entree was excellent, but they do... More

Clearly, it's a very popular sunset place. Everybody will be there. But if you are expecting to make a romantic dinner reservation forget it. Put on your most casual Naples gear and fit in with the masses. By the way the food is quite good. But the LaPlaya experience is just not worth it. For value go elsewhere.

Good afternoon Brian, Although we certainly appreciate the feedback, we were obviously concerned with your comments regarding our level of sophistication. Firstly, it's not really our intention to appeal to only one group of clientele.
