This is the perfect special occasion restaurant. It is prix fixe only which is not entirely my preference. The amount of food that we were served (4 courses + additional mini courses) was more than I have ever consumed in one meal! The service was top notch but the food was not entirely memorable but not bad by any means.... More

It is the best place to splurge in the area. We go here once a year and we spend about $600.00 for four of us. That is with wine. You won't get a bad meal here. I have eaten here for Christmas dinner and that is worth splurging for as well.

We've eaten at the WBI many times over the years. I don't usually re-review a hotel or restaurant, but after 3 meals last week I just couldn't pass up the chance to rave about the WBI one more time. We stayed at the Inn itself (see review) for three nights over the New Year's holiday and ate at the restaurant... More

We had dinner last night with 7 friends at the White Barn it was lovely. The magnificent decorations would take your breath away. Dinner was delicious, the pork loin with wild mushroom risotto was out of this world. The service is impeccable that impossible balance of friendly, knowledgeable, discreet and caring. Angela is one of the best servers we have... More

My wife and I decided on a long overdo dinner and overnight at the White Barn Inn after an early season visit to the Kittery outlets. We were one of only two tables in the fabled beautifully lit dining room. Our three waiters were friendly, informative and omnipresent without being intrusive, no small task in many upscale restaurants. The food... More

3 strikes and you are out. That is my basic thought about the White Barn Inn. Long ago and far away I was a professional cook so when I go out I like to go special places. We hadn't been to the White Barn for some time so we decided to have a non-turkey Thanksgiving there. Yes the service is... More

We had dinner here on a Sunday evening. Every time we have dined here it seems to get better. Right from your arrival you are made to feel special. The cuisine is superb and the wine paring makes an outstanding meal truly memorable. The setting is beautiful and changes seasonally. The service is thoroughly professional, knowledgeable, and above all friendly.... More

We ate here on a Friday evening. There was only one other table occupied and they left shortly after we arrived. It was like having "private dining" The pianist played all through dinner and I'm sure was glad to leave when we did. The food was just ok. We have eaten at many Michellin Starred places and we are extremely... More
