“Left feeling neglected”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

My husband and I dined at the White Barn Inn this past weekend. We were warmly welcomed by all the staff as we were led to our table. The food was outstanding, even my hard to please Husband had an outstanding experience. My only complaint was that our waiter hardly visited our table, instead spending at least 30 minutes at another couples table having a long animated conversation.
We finally had to ask one of the lovely young ladies who were clearing our courses for a glass of wine. We had planned to order a bottle of champagne to celebrate our Birthdays and Valentines day.
I also noticed that each woman at other tables were presented with a rose at the end of the meal. For some reason I was not included in this tradition.
I guess because my husband was only dressed in a houndstooth jacket rather than a black suit . We left feeling unwelcome and neglected.

“Excellent setting, service and food”
Reviewed 27 January 2012

Went here with collegues for a celebration. The restaurant/staff really went that extra mile and made this evening very special. I have nothing to complain about than it should be located closer to where I live.

“World famous”
Reviewed 24 January 2012

Great restaurant but bring a fat wallet with you. For 2, plan on spending somewhere between $100 to $200.

“Splurge!”
Reviewed 9 January 2012

This elegant, formal restaurant in a barn (some barn!) is a special occasion place. The setting, food, wine list, and service may justify the very steep price.
