Reviewed October 15, 2013

I stay at the hotel and enjoy the food every visit!! The staff is friendly. The menu changes to make it different everytime we visit. Always a great time and we take our son that is four years old and they treat him very well.

“Good food”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

The food was good. The service was better and the ambiance/view was the best! how can you go wrong to have dinner with fire pit on the beach with light up lanterns! Price were a bit high but I guess you pay for the location which was totally worth for me.

“Our evening at Baleen - La Playa, Naples, Florida”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

From the moment we arrived to the end of our dinner we had not only exceptional service (THANK YOU, Velecia and Amelia!), but also superb food. The staff went out of their way to ensure a delightful evening, including going that "extra mile" to bring us the dessert we were hoping to have (NY cheesecake), but they did not have on the menu. They managed to track down a delicious piece of cheesecake through the private club catering and truly surprised us by it seemingly to 'appear' out of nowhere.
The food and ambiance was top notch from start to finish - one of our all time best dinners!!

“Excellent Meal”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

We went here for a special birthday for my mother. I called in advance to let them know and Baleen did not disappoint. They put us at a wonderful table in view of the spectacular sunset. Prime Rib was perfectly done. Service and ambiance were great. Would definitely recommend this place, eating inside or out.
