Are you looking for that romantic place for dinner. You have found it. I went with friends and we enjoyed critiquing our meal, which by the way was delicious. There is only the fixed price menus so take a look at pricing before you go to prevent sticker shock once there. I can tell you if you make the leap... More

We were staying at the Inn and ate dinner here on two occasions. This was the best eating experience we had during our holiday. The room is beautiful and the 'pumpkin' decoration (together with chipmunks) was very attractive. The staff, including the maitre d', who kindly accommodated our request for an earlier reservation, were really helpful in discussing both food... More

The 'barn' setting is lovely and the ambiance is romantic. It is elegant without being stuffy. I imagine it would be a spectacular setting for a wedding. The service is excellent from the time you drop your car with the valet to the point at which you retrieve it. Once seated, you select from either the standard menu, which is... More

We dined here recently, and loved the Barn setting. More importantly, the ambiance, food and service was outstanding. A great venue for that special occasion.

This was our fourth time here. The meals are elegant with a wide variety in the menu. It appears "too much" when you look at the menu, but the portions are perfect. It is quality, and alas for the waistline, enough quantity. The wait staff is excellent.

We were returning guests and were not disappointed! I enjoyed the nine course "tasting" menu. My wife thought that the lobster with linguini was excellent. The service was very prompt and courteous. Friendly, but not overbearing. The tasting menu, in particular, was much more expensive than what I would ordinarily expect to pay for an excellent meal. Of course, I... More

This was our splurge night for our Maine vacation. Beautiful setting, great service but not stuffy, wonderful food. The restaurant was beautifully decorated for fall. The menu is fixe price so come hungry. The main waiter made excellent suggestion on food selections. My husband and I each picked different thing and were both pleased. We each had a cocktail before... More

The professional restaurant staff, the excellent food and presentation, the exquisite New England barn setting, the table spacing and table top decor, the live tasteful piano music throughout dinner, and a well stocked bar and wine selection, make the White Barn Inn restaurant worthy of being a Relais & Chateaux property. The breakfast was also special.

From the beginning to the end our waiter was exceptional. He was polite and accommodating and was there without being there too much. However the food began to arrive and to put it simply, the description on the menu was far better the food itself. Flavors were lost between the menu and the kitchen. Popcorn in the veal dish to...
