A Naval Review is an event, where the whole (or a very large part) of the United States Navy is paraded to be reviewed by the President of the United States or the Secretary of the Navy. It often includes warships and delegates from other national navies. It is more regular and frequent than its British equivalent, the Fleet Review, and often occurs on a Navy Day.

Following is a list of past Naval Reviews, by President. Each was reviewed by the President, unless otherwise noted.
