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

It is pretty easy to see why The White Barn Inn has won so many prestigious awards. You are treated like royalty from your first step in the door until you leave. The food is incredible, beautifully presented and out of this world delicious. The wait staff are attentive without being annoying and quite knowledgeable about wine pairings. All in... More

They have two options at the restaurant (tho only the formal on, jacket required), on Fri/Sat. We dined at both, and really both were outstanding. Perfect service, great wine list and menu, everything cooked perfectly. Not cheap, but well worth it. Room is well decorated as well, very comfortable. Well worth a visit!

We looked forward to our visit to the White Barn Inn primarily for the renowned restaurant, only to be sorely disappointed. To be clear, it should be understood that we viewed this Relais and Chateau property as playing in the same field as other fine restaurants we have visited - Per Se in Ne York, Le Petit Nice in Marsailles,...

Situated in an old renovated barn decorated with old woodworking tools and fascinating items in the shadows on the hay loft level. Being autumn there was also an amazing display of pumpkins and corn outside the window - the pumpkin weighted 335 pounds - unbelievable! This is a truly top class restaurant which pays attention to every detail to ensure... More

We just had the most perfect evening at The White Barn Inn. Everything was delicious Service, food and hospitality was lovely. The WBI team made us feel like treasured guests. Chef Cartwright stopped by out table and made us feel very special. Every bite was amazing. It could not have been better !!!!

We can't say enough about the wonderful dinner and service that we received here! They went above and beyond with many additional touches to add to our dining experience. We look forward to returning back on our next vacation!

Maine is a state with a lot of charm, and most of the state is unpretentious, beautiful, but I'd also add that the residents are pretty down to earth. When asking around, I found that some locals have the opinion that fine dining isn't worth the money, but the reality is that the White Barn Restaurant is quite simply an... More

When you want a special dinner this is the place to go in Kennebunk. This is a Relais & Chateaux Hotel and restaurant so I knew it would be good and it truly was a special dining experience. Great ambiance, perfect service and the food was amazing!! Highly recommended
