We visit Baleen Naples every year and are never disappointed. The view is great and the food is excellent. The entire staff is friendly and attentive. Our server Cosimo was friendly, took time to review the menu, and anticipated our every need.

We dine at Baleen each winter and are always appreciative that they honor our table requests; there is no better place in Naples to view the sunset and enjoy a beverage and an excellent dinner. Our party of seven enjoyed our meals very much; excellent service was provided by Milos who was friendly and professional. Highly recommended.

Ok, I must review this wonderful place. Even though I think trip advisor is a giant scam taking advantage of my reviews with their stupid point system that means nothing. I'm doing this for the user. Trip advisor be damned. If you are in the naples area and want an exquisite dining experience you must visit Baleens. No where in... More

I went to Baleen last summer with friends and knew I needed to take my parents there...and it didn't disappoint. The food is outstanding, the wine is superb, the dessert to die for (have one of everything and share), the service is excellent, but the ambiance and the view of the ocean at sunset is unlike anything you will experience....

We just enjoyed another and possibly our best dinner at Baleen. The service and especially the food is better than last year. And one could not ask for a better location. As for service, Karoly and his many aids were super. Non-assuming, but always there to help.

We went with family from out of town. Very busy with a convention. We were seated outside but too windy and were reseated indoor. Atmosphere just ok. Very few diners were inside. I remember it being busier on previous visits. We did the prefix meals and one chefs special, Grouper. It was good but lacked value for $45.00. Prefix was... More

Had Sunday bunch with my wife today. Just an awful experience. The server was indifferent, inefficient and bored with the job! The kitchen was incredibly slow. The food was not hot and just okay. The whole is shop worn and tired. Never again will they get our business.

Our dinner with friends at Baleen was so much fun. But it was because of the stunning sunset and the company rather than the food. (The martini was great, though!) I had the mussels, which I normally love where ever I order them. But these were overpowered by sausage, which was inexplicably added. Even when I pushed the sausage aside,... More

I went here the other night for dinner with my daughter. The patio and ocean view was beautiful. The strip steak was delicious. Our favorite part was the waiter. Cosimo was so entertaining and we loved his Italian accent. The service was fantastic and the food is upscale. I'll go back if I ever visit Naples again.
