Wonderful birthday experience!

Celebrated my birthday with a dinner at the White Barn Inn and it was just fantastic! Nils was excellent with superb wine recommendations. Every bite of every course was delicious and the service was top notch. Spectacular evening! Highly recommend

Stopped in for a glass of wine and small appetizers. The wine and food were excellent. Maqke sure you don't come n shorts and flip flops - there are more tuxedo-ed waiteres here than anywhere I have ever been. They were extremely attentive and jovial - and you paid the price for it! However, I would go back for another... More

Somewhere around our 10th visit and it still shines every time. This year we went on my birthday and everything was perfect. Our waiter Nils did a great job. Surprised to see other diners without jackets on, but I guess they have relaxed the requirement as many restaurants have had to do. Couldn't have asked for a better evening. Thank... More

This was definitely the most expensive meal we have had, but it was totally worth every penny! I am pregnant and the chef was incredibly accommodating. Every course was spectacular. The service was also second to none. If you can afford it, we would absolutely recommend this restaurant!

While our dinner was expensive, our parents' 50tj anniversary deserved a special locale! This was it!!! Superb service, eight courses (3 of which were dessert!!), outstanding food, and a great celebration!

Very disappointed with our meal. Although the 4 course menu looks creative and the restaurant is tauted to be one of the best in kennebunk, it fell short on service (inattentive),flavor (mediocre) and not worth the $400 total for 2 with drinks which were also overpriced. Would not return. There are other much better choices in the area.

We stayed at the White Barn Inn and unfortunately were unable to eat in the formal dining room. That being said, the menu was great. Prepared by the same chef as the formal dining room. I had the seafood risotto. It was excellent. Exceptional wine list! Waiter provided very professional service. My only complaint was the group seated next to... More

If we hadn't gone to Earth the night before, I would be giving WBI a 5 star review. The food - particularly, the beef - was flawlessly executed and the cheese selection was fantastic. That said, even though it's no longer jacket-only, the feel was a little formal for vacation. Expect incredible food, a great wine list, and a beautiful... More

Service was 5 Star. Food was inventive and yes good!. Menu is prix fixe with some nice choices and wine pairing is done well! Kennebunk and the areas surrounding are heavy with many fine restaurants and this was one of the best with the only white tablecloth that we found.

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, but the care the took to help my... More
