Very pretty, great food, best service! My risotto was undercook with my lobster. They were very apologetic and brought out a fresh plate and comped it. Mistakes happen but how they handled says everything! Highly recommend.

We went to Baleen primarily because we stayed at LaPlaya. We sat outside overlooking the beach. The food was good, and it was expensive. We each had an appetizer - the crab mix and the shrimp mix - they were about $15 each and they came in a big bowl with a tiny serving. This is not the place where you will be stuffed. For dinner, we had the grouper and the filet with the asparagus au gratin and the lobster mac and cheese. All was very good. We got a half bottle of wine which was marked up considerably. Our waiter was pleasant and prompt and we had a very nice time. The view cannot be beat. I would recommend this restaurant for a special occasion and the view - otherwise, there are many good places to eat in Naples.

I was expecting THE most fabuluous dinner and was somewhat disappointed. Our server was excellent and the view was gorgeous but I wouldn't go back. Very pricey.
