Daddy/Daughter Trip with 11-yr old

Though a bit unconventional to take an 11-yr-old to a Relais Chateaux dinner, I love to take my daughters "out" and show them how a guy should take care of them. The White Barn Inn was more than graciously accommodating in handling our unusual 2-top. The food and service was obviously exceptional... read more

The reviews are true. This is an exceptional restaurant. Yes, it is very expensive. But you know that going in. Sit back and enjoy it. The service is excellent. The food is interesting and well prepared. The atmosphere is classy, but it is not stiff. There are several little surprises during the meal. We went there to celebrate our son's... More

If it were just a rating of service I'd give 5/5. What an experience. The price is hefty but you're paying for some serious pampering. Alex took care of us and it was as good as any dinner service I've ever had anywhere. Just the right timing, the right amount of conversation, detailed knowledge of the food and wine, and... More

The establishment is quite charming and the service is excellent, but the food could be improved, especially with such high price tag. The foie gras was delicious; everything else was just okay - soup, duck, and fettuccini lobster were not that impressive. Everything needed salt and a lot more flavor overall. Food was plentiful but wished they had a la... More

I was in the area and took a chance and called for a reservation. They accomodated me. I had the 4 course and loved everything. Had the 3 way foie gras, pea soup, duck and berry souffle w raspberry sorbet. They gave me choc candy too. Waiter could have been better, had too many tables.. Hrlpers were great.

We had a fantastic dinner at the White Barn last night to say good bye to Chef Jonathan Cartwright. After 20 years as Chef at this iconic restaurant he is leaving. Dinner was excellent as was the service. I had the day boat scallops. They were seared to perfection and served with asparagus, ramps and morels. Several of our friends... More

Delicious food! The staff is knowledgeable, helpful and courteous. We had breakfast here twice and dinner once. Each meal was truly incredible. The lobster and beef were cooked to perfection. The desserts are worth the trip alone. The restaurant (which is a renovated barn) is wonderfully organized where you don't feel cramped in with the other diners. If you're in... More

The White Barn Inn was amazing. Definitely pricey as you've heard, but worth it if you're looking to treat yourself to a memorable dining experience. Food was amazing- and the service, simply spectacular! Go if you're looking for a nice evening with wonderful ambiance and great food, skip if you're looking to grab a burger...

My family and I head here a couple times a year to celebrate a birthday or anniversary. The atmosphere is calm, frequently with piano accompaniment. Service is perfectly professional. The food is fantastic with sufficient seasonal variety, while faithfully supplying our favorites.... Make a reservation..... you won't regret it.

We ate in the bistro area, the more casual of the two, where you can order a la carte. I had the lobster salad, which I'd give a mixed review to. It was a good bit of lobster, just big hunks of it, and a mound of salad greens with some cucumber and tomato slices below it. Kind of difficult... More
