Good food and atmosphere in an area rife with cheesy chain restaurants. Pricey but good food. Whenever my parents come and visit they always stay at the adjacent hotel, so we have been to Baleen quite a few times with small children and even though they aren't really set up for that, they have always been very friendly and accommodating.

We only had breakfast and cocktails here, but enjoyed both. The view of the harbor made everything very pleasant. The breakfast was included with our hotel stay and was adequate. If we had ordered off the menu I think it would have been better.

My wife and two kids ate here while on vacation. We stayed at the hotel that was right across the parking lot from the restaurant so it was convenience that brought us here and boy am I happy it did. The atmosphere overlooking the marina was fantastic. We had a late breakfast/early lunch on a Sunday and everything we had... More

Arrived very hungry after long flight and room not ready. Had a couple of great local beers, squid and ceviche. Service great and food good. Had a few drinks following night and again service good. Ate breakfast here one morning but nothing exceptional. Overall very handy place to Portofino and great views over the marina.

We stayed at the portofino hotel for a conference. I ordered room service from the Baleen Kitchen next door and it was THE BEST EVER. I had a dry cappuccino and a smokey side of bacon that was seriously delicious. I will return again.

We visited this place for a nightcap on a warm evening in July. It has a great atmosphere and very nice staff. The signature cocktails were impressive and the views of the marina are worth a stop here.

What a gem! Great breakfasts, and the lunch/dinner menu is fantastic. I ordered the Miso-glazed Salmon - best I've ever had. My wife had the filet - the short rib hash that accompanied it was incredible - great tasting and perfectly prepared steak. Nice wine selection - great view of the marina. Hard to go elsewhere when this is so... More

I come here with a group of girlfriends akmost once a week. We love the food and ambience- looking at the marina before sunset. Live music at night is a plus!!!

Try the mussels, they were awesome! The hanger steak was amazing. The house made gelato was really different but very good.
