This is a great restaurant and one of the few that have fine cuisine on the shore, but very expensive. It is a bring your own, so that's a plus, but if you're not a big drinker you'll be paying higher prices than normal.

Despite a meager turn out on a very chilly what should have been spring night, Whispers once again showed why it is consistently rated among the top tier in central N J .Timely not pushy service and well prepared meals from a slightly pared down off season menu. Stands the test of time over multiple visits.

We were not impressed with the food or the prices. Expected more for the amount of money spent. 12 dollars for a small salad...really? Our waitress was wonderful though.

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 quality... 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
