Service, greetings, food, experience: all top shelf. We can't express enough how fresh, simple yet complex the food is. The whole experience is phenomenal beginning to end. You will not be disappointed. We can understand comments to heat on veranda-- it was warm initially but cooled as evening progressed. We were never hurried. Kudos and we WILL be back.

Whispering Swan deserves five stars. The service is spectacular. The soup for amuse Bouche and the caramel treats for at the end of the meal were divine. I greatly enjoyed my pasta dish. The bread was wonderful. Best meal I have had in the last three months.

Whistling Swan Restaurant is in a vintage home with lovely ambiance. My husband and I went here the first night of our vacation in Door County. We started with the Heirloom Tomatoes which were superb! I had the Grilled pork chop ‘nduja with roasted carrots, green beans, kohlrabi, scallion & walnut salad, sheep’s milk cheese gnudi and honey emulsion. This... More

One of the best meals we have had in a while! They offered us a free snack, bread, and small spoonful of dessert which was not expected at all but definitely delicious. I had the corn cakes and my boyfriend had the pork chop. We both loved our dishes and my boyfriend even said that was the ear pork chop... More

Dinner here was excellent, but you will definitely want to ask for an inside table on a hot day. The "patio" area is all enclosed with open windows, but the a/c from inside does not cool it. The menu is pricey compared to other Fish Creek restaurants, but has a very nice ambiance and may not be suited for small... More

We had a recommendation from a local to try the Whistling Swan for dinner. We sat on the veranda, which was beautiful and allowed us to people watch while we dined. I ordered the vegetarian entree, which was Sweet Corn Johnnycakes--they were absolutely delicious! My husband had Shrimp with Fettuccine, which also was great. We also enjoyed our Ravioli appetizer.... More

So glad we were a party of four. We we able to order multiple dishes to sample. Highlights tonight were, amuse roasted onion apple soup shooter, then "street corn" and the "marrow butter" for starters. Main course the chicken is undeniably succulent, the veg dish a brilliant twist on Johnny cakes and for dessert chocolate with blue cheese ice cream... More

Third time here. Food always super. Servers always super (except for table cleaning example below). But tonight was pretty warm out and there is no air conditioning in the main dining area and it was SWEATY! Very uncomfortable. We couldn't even stand the idea of staying for desert. After people to table 3 feet from us left, some guy came... More

I ate here as part of a large group in which we had preordered from a limited menu. The service was efficient and pleasant. The food was great. I ordered a steak well done and it was perfect--cooked well but still juicy. Everyone in the group thought their food was good. I'd definitely eat here again.

We would have liked to try this place, the smells were delicious, the atmosphere looked great....but they REFUSED to serve us as my son has food allergies. I asked about a kids hamburger and if they'd just give us two bottom pieces (tops have sesame seeds) or just the bottom or just the burger. The host was gracious enough to... More
