My husband and I had a reservation and we were really looking forward to it for weeks since we were visiting spring Lake. The hostess was lovely but we were incredibly disappointed when we entered the dining room. The tables were so close and the...room so loud. We were brought to a table that was literally right next to another table for two that if they turned their head they would be in our face. It was so also so warm with no circulating or and no servers had masks. We have been traveling lately and have stopped at several places but this was the most uncomfortable we felt. We left and the hostess was understanding. Our intent is not to bad mouth the restaurant and we are sure the food is good but right now with a covid endemic people should be educated and know what to expect.More

Thank you for warning all the people that are covid-conscious.

We have eaten here for several years. Outside dining was available last summer but not this year. Service is excellent, the atmosphere is elegant, and the food is expertly prepared. This is BYOB. One of our favorite restaurants. We always make sure to eat here...when we vacation in Spring Lake.More

I called repeatedly regarding a gift card we found in my mom’s house. They never returned our calls. Very disappointing.

Whispers is something to shout about. The chef’s special – shelled lobster and crab cakes with saffron sauce - was perfection and just the special treat we could have wished for our 50th anniversary celebration. Many thanks to our delightful hostess Ashley who provided superlative...service and suggestions. For those concerned about the negative reviews regarding long waits for previously reserved tables, book an early reservation.More

Excellent service, setting and very good food, all overpriced Spring Lake standard. It would not take much to bump this review higher, but I'd say about 20% over the price for this setting and meal.

Perfectly prepared appetizers, main courses and desserts. All were delicious and reasonably sized. The lobster in a wonton skin was spectacular. It’s a BYOB but is still on the pricey side. We were in a small room which had two other tables with people and...it was a bit noisy. Servers were very attentive and accommodating.More

Adjacent to a hotel, this restaurant offers good if expensive food. Appetizers of grilled shrimps good if succinct. Lobster bisque soup excellent Main course of salmon a bit overcooked. Rack of lamb good if a bit dry, I asked for mustard and was told they...did not have any. I have noticed that in the US chefs tend to be offended if you ask for mustard, an ingredient that is always available in Europe and provided without fuss. BYO Main drawback is the pricing which I find excessive with a very simple aragula salad priced at $18 Average serviceMore

It’s nice to return to fine dining again with a delightful experience at Whispers this evening. The wait staff provided excellent service and the chef was spot on! Delicious and well presented were the filet mignon and lobster with crab cake. I only wished our...appetites were larger to enjoy multiple courses and dessert. Certainly a place for those who appreciate fine dining and the flexibility of BYOB. Bon appetite!More

Dry tasteless filet mignon for $50? Miniscule amount of pasta with shrimp? Noise from a party table seated right next to ours? Coffee for $14? If this is your idea of fine dining then Whispers is for you!

Wow - they need to take some time to figure things out. Terrible experience which was so disappointing after previous visits.
