We debated if to go with buffet o a la carte. We went with Buffet and it was the right decision. Beautiful location right next to the ocean. Service was excellent and food was good. The ambient music made one feel relaxed. Not inexpensive but well worth the cost. If you want a relaxing Saturday breakfast highly recommend checking it... More

Our meals were delicious and well prepared. I had the Lobster Rissoto and my husband had salmon. Our server, Daniel, took very good care of... More

My parents had already gone to Baleen for dinner a couple of times but this was mine and my boyfriend's first. Besides the cocktails and food being delicious, the service was outstanding! Our waiter, Adriano, went above and beyond for us, always with a smile on his face. With an amazing ambiance, fantastic food and quality service, it was overall... More

We planned ahead for a birthday celebration and explained that to the hostess as phone reservations were made. Another call was made two hours before the dinner to confirm that all would be ready for the birthday recognition. The hostess sat us at a lovely indoor table with a view of the water. The room was chilly but it was... More

We were there when Tropical Storm Hermine was out there and not many people there, which was fine. Where we were seated, by the window and next to a door that went out to the patio, we got a musty smell around us. They have an extensive wine list but quite pricey. The meal we had which was a NY...

My wife and I have eaten here many times but we are done. First of all you should know that they charge you a mandatory $5 fee for valet parking. Yes it's only $5 but it's an insult. Your going there to eat and spend a lot for dinner. Do you really need to charge for parking ? No one... More
