Six adults and three kids for dinner. Great experience for all. Kids were entertained. Everyone had great food and wine. We ate in the Bistro. Several still stuck to seafood. Some switched to steak and chicken. Kids had bread salmon and asparagus. Hit of the evening for the kids was the chocolate brownie with chocolate sauce. Service was attentive and... More

Walked into this stuffy environment but we were pleasantly surprised. We needed to sit in the bistro section as we didn't have reservations for the main dining room. The menu was great, we loved x10, the tuna tartare appetizer. The martinis were perfect with blue cheese stuffed olives. Lobster was ok, nothing special and yes, overpriced. The risotto was good,...

This restaurant is fantastic! I'm a loyal guest of the chateau and relais properties, which are not cheap but you get back every single penny of what you pay For. This in particular, is among my favorite ones. They have the best attention to detail in all senses. The five course meal is phenomenal. I had the best lobster ever!... More

We celebrated my birthday both at the White Barn Inn Restaurant. Both my husband and I were very pleased with our dinner here. Although I ate lobster every day of my week in Maine (and sometimes at both lunch and dinner ), the lobster entree here (one of their signature dishes) was one of the best I've ever had. Service...

My husband and I were on a road trip driving back to NYC from Camden, Maine. As a birthday treat for my husband, I booked the highly recommended and well reviewed restaurant at the White Barn Inn for dinner. We were very impressed with the old school barn decor and there was a good vibe in the restaurant with a... More

We enjoyed our 4-course dinner, the suggested wines, and the dessert. Our waiter was fantastic - very friendly, helpful, attentive. The atmosphere is romantic, and the pianist succeeded at background music (was not interrupting). The only challenge is the cost. We have been similarly impressed at half the almost $250/person we spent here.

This was our first time here and we came on the recommendation of a colleague. This place nailed it. Impeccable service, great ambience and amazing food. Chris took great care of us. I won't bore you with our food selections, just want to say that we'll remember this experience for a long time.

I eat at the main restaurant one or two times a year and always find the food and service to be excellent. It wouldn't get the five star rating if it wasn't excellent. It seems that the few negative reviews are probably from the Bistro. I have never eaten in the Bistro, so I really can't rate it. It would... More

My husband and I made reservations at White Barn during our Maine vacation and had a wonderful, romantic evening. Venue: The restaurant is housed in a huge white barn (hence the name) with small, stringing lights that exudes romance and fine dining. There is a pianist playing, and I would suggest getting there early for a drink at the piano.... More

I'm very fond of this restaurant. It has a special ambiance which I've rarely found elsewhere. The decor is a pleasant juxtaposition of oil paintings, pressed linens, fresh flowers and the interior of an old barn, albeit nicely restored. The food and service are excellent. Because of all these things dining here is a comprehensive experience. Highly recommended.
