Lovely restaurant within Hewitt Wellington Hotel. BYOB. Appetizers are carefully prepared and served. Salads/Main courses were fabulous. Wait staff were courteous and classy. Ample time for conversation and digestion between courses, which was nice. Restaurant requests "cell phones OFF," which encouraged conversation. Pleasant music in the background, not too loud, just enough for pleasant ambiance all-around. Worth the $$$.

I ate at Whispers for my first time in August and again this past month. Everything was perfect. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. The food was delicious. I kept thinking about it even days afterward! Not to mention, they just have the environment for a good time with friends and family. Even their cookie dessert was exceptional. My... More

I eat at Whispers any chance I get. The service is fantastic and the food is always perfect. Great quality, great portions, beautiful presentation. After eating my salad AND my delicious chicken dish I still managed to share a dessert (somehow). The apple caramel bread pudding topped with vanilla gelato was the perfect end to the evening.

As close to white glove service as you can get. I ordered a cod fish special that was the best I ever had and almost licked the plate. Our waiter was a real pro and made himself available at all times. I will definitely return and stay at The Hewitt Wellington if it's an overnight event.

A nice upscale restaurant in Spring Lake, the BYOB was good but not great as expected. Our server was average at best, and kept forgetting things. The food was good, some great. I had the swordfish which fell into the good category while some of the other meals(6 of us) fell into the great category. The atmosphere is very nice... More

The atmosphere is very pleasant and charming. The place is very traditional from the decor to the menu. My steak was delicious; but my husband's dinner was pretty pathetic for the price. He ordered the shrimp and pasta. There were only FOUR shrimp and small meager amount of pasta. On the flip side, my steak was enormous and the amount... More
