We visited the restaurant fourteen years ago and had one of the most memorable experiences of our lives. We returned to celebrate a milestone birthday and were looking so forward to the dinner. We were very disappointed and felt all areas of the restaurant had declined. The service was fair and we were left waiting a long time between courses.... More

We enjoyed our waiter and staff. Very educated and poised service. Unfortunately the meal was not fantastic. We went with many reviews of this incredible experience and received mediocre at best. For the most expensive meal I have ever paid for. It was not the best. The pianist was lovely. We even got to dance twice. The following day we... More

We had a wonderful night at the White Barn. It was a tasting of new Fall menu items. Every bite was delicious. The fried short ribs were crunchy on the outside and silky on the inside, the contrast in texture and flavor was lovely. The tuna tartar with guacamole was wonderful and the sliders with fried pickles over the moon!!!... More

Went here on a week day night a few weeks ago with my partner. The restaurant is in a beautiful setting and very secluded/romantic. We didn't stay at the hotel but would have if we knew it was this nice. The greeting staff was friendly and polite, even the kids in charge of the valet. The food was what you... More

We have dined here on numerous special occasions and the food, décor, and service is incomparable. Our last visit was even more memorable having Chris as our server and being seated at our favorite table.

My wife and I dined here last Saturday evening as we celebrated her special birthday. We last dined here about 15 to 20 years ago. Service is still impeccable and food presentations are something to behold. Prices are big city fine dining pricey, but that's to be expected for a restaurant of this quality.

It has been said that everyone should have a one-time experience of dining at the White Barn Inn. I so looked forward to that happening, January 2016. It was a beautiful time of the year with its festive decor and holiday trimmings, near breathless viewing the beautiful Christmas tree displays. We had a lovely table that afforded a wonderful window... More
