Most recently, Baleen was awarded Wine Spectators Award of Excellence - Pleasing to the palate and the eye alike, Baleen Naples mixes Old Florida charm with elegant candlelit elegance. Beautiful chandeliers and soft mahogany furnishings set the tone for an elegant dining experience. Baleen spills out through the grand doors to our breathtaking terrace with tables overlooking the sweeping beach and ends with a collection of tables for cocktails in the sand next to the fire pit.

We went to Baleen while staying at the resort and had a great meal! The service was exceptional, and we really enjoyed their wine list. We found a wine that was a hidden gem that we love but is sold out and only available for auction in most of the US. Our server let us buy up the bottles and take them home as the restaurant price was a 10 th of what the wine was going for! Overall we really enjoyed it. Oh and the views are beautiful at sunset!

Experienced on Nov 5th at 3:45 pm. After searching for a beachfront sunset experience, we finally found this beautiful locale. Unfortunately, the hostess was quite appalled that we arrived 15 minutes late (gasp!!) for the first seating/feeding (even though all indoor/outdoor/beach front dining tables were empty with the exception of 4 people.) Andres the waiter was awesome. The hostess however tracked us down to ensure that we sat in the appropriate area and kicked us to the curb (the valet staff were great for the 15 minutes and we tipped them). Don't go here!

A special place- I just celebrated a birthday with family, have been several times for other events. I called in advance and the service went above and beyond to accomodate our group.
Excellent food, service, drinks and can't beat the sunsets -
if i had to place any criticism, I would say that I did have a salmon dish that was a bit dry. other than that, we all tried each other's food and it was awesome.
Icemanbotton line- Prepare to pay the price, but it is well worth the value and experience!

The bill was $137 for two people. Portions looked like a sampler or decoration. Fooled me once only. Eat at the pool instead or off property.

Absolutely perfect setting for a sunset dinner. In the fall, we called for reservations and the hostess knew the exact time of sunset. Wait staff was outstanding. Amazing wine selection. Most of our party selected from the Price-Fixe menu (not sure how often it's offered) Valet parking only. A wonderful evening!!
