better than it was, but service is a tad slow. If not in a hurry....nice! Good patio seating in the summer.

Whippletree has a new menu - much more interesting than the old one with it's same old Mexican fare. I especially like the various tacos - tropical fish, portobello with sweet potatoes and tequila line chicken. Instead of ordering the ordinary chips and salsa, try the dip trio - guacamole, mango/papaya salsa and quesa fondido - YUM! Happily they have... More

Stopped here for an appetizer and a drink. Not that many people in the restaurant but there were four servers plus the bar tender. Unfortunately the servers seemed more interested in talking to each other and the two regulars at the bar then they were interested in doing their job. On the up side, the food was delicious and we... More

Whippletree has been an Evergreen staple for years. They have finally brought in a new chef and menu - a big improvement. The locals are hoping that the service level and decor can eventually improve as well. It seems they need more staff (bartenders, waitstaff and hosts) And the back room is still depressing/dingy and doesn't match the exciting new... More

The new menu is a great change for Whippletree. Who knew I would be such a fan of kale. The patio is a nice place to meet friends for an after work drink. The interior is old building rustic as you can see from the exterior. Very casual.

We liked the whippletree before they changed the menu and visited occasionally. They used to have very good green chili. The chef is trying to make this little dive into something with upscale food and it just doesn't work. We have tried it once with the new menu and won't go back.

Although the service was a little lacking, the food really made up for it. The new chef is excellent! I had the chile relleno with Baja sauce and my husband had the wings. Both were like nothing we've ever had before! Even the blue cheese dressing was unique! Congrats to the chef for putting a new and amazing spin on... More

Ok so we've lived here for 2 years and have given this place a few chances to wow us. Time after time is the same. Poor unfriendly service with a super slow kitchen. They advertised they had a new menu so we thought we'd give it one more chance. Super slow kitchen again and their new menu is worse than... More

My wife and I selected this restaurant in Bergen Park after hiking the Chief Mountain trail, based on online reviews. The Whipple Tree Margarita is very good. The salsa is homemade (OK, but not very spicy)--add some guacamole for zest. The Mexican burger is served on a flour tortilla; the burger taste is overwhelmed by the sauces. The burger plate...

Having been a patron of the Whippletree since it's inception it was sad to see a 35 year old institution turned on it's head. While some change is always good to wipe the slate clean and californicate the menu was not necessary. So much 'charred, smoked' that it is off-putting. I think there should be a nod to the things...
