Way overpriced, way under served.

Went to Whispers a while back with another couple for dinner. We all agreed the food was average at best, and the service was slow. I gave it two stars because the area is nice. I would not go back again for very overpriced food that was again, average at best. You can get a much bigger and higher... read more

I write this review for 2 reasons, first to voice my displeasure at the the recent review by Mike, from Manalapan in regards to his experience on Valentine's Day, 2/14/2015. I was in the restaurant at the time and the management of Whispers were more than cordial. The restaurant was filled to capacity and to add a fifth chair, to... More

We made reservations for a Birthday Dinner. We were greeted by Margo who also served us that evening. She was terrific. Very attentive and made us feel very welcomed throughout the evening. We will certainly ask for her when we return! Dining room only sits I think she said 19 tables? So definitely make reservations ESP during tourist season. The... More

Whispers is a lovely old place, one of several that recall the glory days of this elegant Jersey shore town. The food is first rate and the service is good, but as with many restaurants in the area, it makes a huge difference when you go. In summer, at the height of the season, weekend evenings can be an ordeal.... More

Although there are lots of places at the Jersey Shore where you can go to eat, there are very few where you can go out for a really wonderful dining experience. Whispers is one of those few gems that still exist at the Shore where going out to dinner is a very special experience. The location is beautiful, and the... More

We dined here with a party of eight on a Friday night. The only difficult part of the night was determining if the service or food was better. The specials were described beautifully and enticed 4 of 8 people to try the lobster special. I had the signature dish which was cooked and presented perfectly and reminded me of swordfish... More

Beautiful restaurant, great service, food good, but pricey. Venue is wonderful, very elegant, wonderful service. After a long day of traveling, it was a delight to just sit and soak up the elegance. Be aware it is a BYOB no hard liquor served for cocktails. Wine available at reasonable price by the bottle.

We have dined here numerous times over the years and have found it to be consistent in regard to quality of food, atmosphere and setting, service, as well as an invitation to bring your own alcoholc beverages.The restaurant maintains an elegant reserved profile, one that makes it easy to converse without background noise.I feel that returning customers provide a base...
