We have dined here many times, but I never wrote a review. At our last stay over Christmas, we had two meals plus two breakfasts. The menu is prix fixe. It consists of an appetizer, intermezzo, main course and dessert. In addition there is a chef's tasting at the start, and before the entrée is served they bring a refreshing... More

We had Christmas dinner here this year and the food and service were both amazing. However, the prices are stupidly expensive and not reflective of reality... I would recommend eating here, but be prepared to be overcharged. Dinner for two was $440 Canadian!!! We ate off the menu and had a bottle of wine.

Based on last year's very positive experience, we had no qualms this year for our annual post-Prelude visit. It started off fine with a very welcoming bar-tender and head waiter and the always magical setting with the finest holiday feeling you could get. The service, as always, was impeccable. And there the positive comments end. The food selection was vast,... More

We returned to the White Barn after twenty years. This is an expensive fine-dining restaurant and we found the food better than we recall on our last visit. All dishes we ordered were prepared to a high standard with a touch of modernity in the presentation. Particularly impressive were the venison entree and the soufflé with creme anglaise (order in...

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.
