The Baleen Restaurant has a terrific location right on the Gulf of Mexico and the outdoor tables are perfect for viewing the water. Dwayne is a knowledgeable, friendly, professional and attentive server. My New York Strip Steak was cooked perfectly and was tender and very delicious. I would recommend Baleen to anyone looking for a great restaurant in Naples

Great food and perfect view of beach. I've tried breakfast, lunch and dinner and all were great. Only negative is that they recently started charging $5 for parking, even if you're going to the restaurant.

Great location and atmosphere, especially with the beach, sunset, torches, fire pits and Cosimo, our server, who was terrific. A bit of a splurge but everything you want for a great night out.

I've been to Baleen a couple of times now and cannot stress enough how amazing this place is. Food is superb, service is even better. Cosimo was our waiter and he was awesome and so personable, definitely ask for him when you go. Never a bad meal at Baleen! One of my favorites, I highly recommend!

On a cold, blustery SW FL day we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast at Baleen in the LaPlaya hotel. Quickly this became one of our favorite spots. The Benedicts were terrific, and pancakes. That said, the $24.95 buffet was a steal. We sat outside, closer to the surf and under the warm heaters. Loved it. Look forward to going back.

We have been going to the Baleen for many years. It is one of our local favorites. Upon hearing it was our guest's birthday, Chef Solis created a special dessert for her and sent it table side. He then followed up with a quick visit during an insanely busy time to see how we were enjoying it. It was the... More

A beautiful beach setting in Naples Florida, somewhat in need of an updating. The food was OK and they had set menus which were convenient with an appetizer, dinner and dessert. the service was good, they oversold the menu items, and I found the whole meal to be over priced. An appetizer was $17 etc. I was underwhelmed by the... More

We had a tremendous lunch at La Playa's Baleen Restaurant right on the beach. Great food, awesome service and a killer view if you sit out on their patio as we did. We can't wait to return as it's certainly one of the prettiest setting in a restaurant that we've ever experienced. Can't wait to return.

As part of our American Express program, we had breakfast for two each day. The first day everything was good: my omelet was perfectly browned, they made the smoothie we asked for, the toast was well-done...
