I frequent Naples a few times a year and I always make a dinner reservation at Baleen Naples at La Playa Resort. I have never had a bad experience here and you won't either. I always suggest making a reservation around sunset time, because it is one of the few restaurants on the beach in Naples. I went most recently... More

Recommended by concierge at The Naples Grand Resort. I must say a great recommendation. The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating with views of the Gulf. The staff is very friendly and reasonably priced. My husband had the Lobster salad and I had the Seafood Pasta both dishes were delicious.

We had friends in from out of town and wanted to take them out for a nice meal on the beach. In this area the number of options is somewhat limited. We wanted to include a fire pit and marshmallows but their site and the person who answered the phone said it wasn't available this time of year due to... More

Stopped by on Monday with my visiting niece and sister and sat out on the porch area to have lunch. Had a couple very refreshing watermelon/strawberry cocktails and a Chicken Caesar Salad, while my niece ordered a Turkey Club Sandwich, which came without the avocado, as it was supposed to, and as they had no "gluten free" menu, my sister...

Very romantic upscale restaurant, gorgeous ocean and sunset view. We went there with our friends for a double date night and sat by the ocean with a nice glass of wine - great, extensive wine list by the way available for wine lovers - while watching the sunset. When it got very windy our waitress Kayla was very accommodating and... More

Came to Baleen's for a romantic dinner with my wife. One of my favorite restaurants in Naples, which is saying a lot. Very under rated. The atmosphere is fantastic and the setting/view is among the best in Naples. The staff is top notch, refer to you by name, and the food is wonderful.

I am astonished at howany people gave Baleen a good review. From the moment you arrive, if you're observant, you'll realize that your at an establishment that is all about raking in the $, while providing very little in return to their customers. Starting with the valet parking...it will cost you $5 plus tip. The restaurant does NOT validate parking.... More
