My husband and I dined here the other night. First, the restaurant was very accommodating when we had to reschedule our reservation due to another blizzard in Boston. Our server, Angela, was incredible. Very friendly, very knowledgeable about the food and the wine. She overheard me tell my husband that we should absolutely order the soufflé because though I love... More

This is my 2nd to 3rd time at the White Barn Inn. My family went for Valentine's Day 2015. First, I should note that I took two teenagers and my 11 year old. Typically I wouldn't advise this at such a nice restaurant, but the kids are well behaved and the restaurant was flexible, but I know they'd probably prefer... More

We were in Kennebunkport to celebrate my favorite cousins 50th Anniversary. We wanted to stay at the hotel but it was completely booked so we had a awesome dinner at the WBI resturant. Service was the best, charming small resturant and the food made our evening "Not to Forget". We would come again when we are in the area. My... More

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.

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
