We have had the pleasure of dining at the White Barn several times and each time we are amazed at he experience. If you do not appreciate fine dining and a restaurant that requires a dress code because it is fine dining than you will never appreciate the experience the White Barn offers. There are not a lot of restaurants... More

We had high expectations as this is a Relais and Chateau restaurant. It started with arrogant service. I didn't bring any dinner jackets on this trip, so I was forced in a jacket they had available. Or alternatively we were not allowed to enter the dining room. The jacket smelled and I wonder how often they dry clean the jackets?... More

Greetings RickBDSA, Thank you very much for taking the time to review our restaurant. When someone has an experience like you have it is certainly something we take very seriously, by no means was it our intention to come across as overbearing or arrogant. When guests join us their comfort is of the utmost concern to us. Please understand that... More

Have been several times and always true to form. The lobster with fettuccine heaven. Thank you to all the staff for a wonderful, special meal!

My wife and I have eaten all over the world. This is the best meal I ever had world wide. The fee of one hundred nine per person was well worth it. This Inn caters to you from the moment you enter the parking lot. The staff is formal yet friendly and easy to converse with. My wife started with... More

Please see my review of the White Barn Inn for more on the restaurant and Cyril. We celebrated our husbands' 60th birthday dinner here. Lobster was the best. Halibut second. Duck Breast fair (alittle salty I was told). Good wine but pricy of course.

This was our first trip to Kennebunkport, and we decided to go all out. We are from Washington, DC and have eaten at many fine dining establishments, but this was by far the best meal we have ever had. We opted for the main menu with traditional wine pairing and there were many complimentary dishes. We highly recommend splurging for... More

The setting and service were 5 star. The food was delicious but I felt it was extremely salty. My filet was cooked perfectly but the sunchoke puree was barely edible. I loved the rest of my meal, and my guests were very happy with their choices. I would go again, it is worth a second chance. I had very high... More

We spent a delightful evening at the White Barn Inn restaurant. Service was superb and food delicious if a little expensive. Being dairy intolerant, I was concerned about what I could eat but needn't have worried - the staff were very attentive and helpful and ensured my meal was totally dairy-free. Each course was first-class, although my fish course was... More

The food is mediocre. The service is terrible. One server asked us if we wanted more water every 5 minutes throughout the entire meal. Exorbitantly overpriced. Really nothing special.

I knew going in that the restaurant required a jacket, but I was not prepared for the price. The price is not $50 as written in Tripadvisor: it is $106 per person. It was worth every penny for a special occasion. The level of service was something I have never experienced before. The food was delicious. This is not a... More
