Everything from a to z was perfect. The food was amazing and very reasonably priced, our server was awesome, and the music and lighting really helped the overall experience. I'll definitely be back very soon.

This is our favorite restaurant - our go to for special occasions. They have a wonderful wine list. We have tried everything on the menu, and we prefer the salmon appetizer, mushroom soup, beef filet and they usually have a fish special.

It was very cold inside even though we were seated near a fireplace, the fireplace was not on. One other table was very loud discussing business during dinner, which we found to be a distraction.

We would like appreciate if the restaurant post the Valentine menu on line so that we can be awared that regular menu will not offer on Valentine day. The food is good but the Valentine menu is overprice!

We had gone to Whispering Pines several years in a row until we had a bad experience there about three years ago. We tried the restaurant this Valentine's Day and were pleased to see that the food and service were back to the levels we had expected. The food was quite good, the portion size was perfect, and the service left nothing to be desired. We are glad we gave them a second chance.

VERY DISAPPOINTED!
WAS 4-5 stars after four romantic dinners here last 5 years. 2.5 stars overall for the following:

1 - OVERBOOKED
2 - discourteous staff - customers always precede staff while walking to their table
3 - stuck in front of a fake fireplace (added table re: overbooked), lots of staff traffic
4 - we both almost needed booster seats due to WORN OUT CHAIRS; my wife sat on her coat
5 - waiter clumsily delivered our meal and slid my wife's plate 1/2 way over edge of the table & left
6 - waiter removed my sorbet before I was finished - without asking
7 - my petite filet was ordered medium rare and was delivered RARE - ate only around edges

2.5 stars max - OK is a long way from great. We were too disappointed to complain, and frankly we believe it wouldn't help anyway. Not sorry for this review and not going back.

They probably follow the path of Deep Fork Grill, where we had a very similar experience on Mother's Day a few years ago. Sad.

Service was poor we had to keep asking for our courses. At one point after our soup and salad we waited 20 min and our server ask if we were ready for dessert. I explained we had only had soup and salad and he looked confused. Two tables seated after us completed their meals and left before we received our third course. The duck my wife was served was inedible so we shared my fillet.

Because of the combination of quality food, service, and ambiance, my wife and I have made Whispering Pines Inn & Restaurant "our place" for romantic dinners on birthdays, anniversaries, and Valentines. We also make it a point to take fine-dining "first-timers" in the family to Whispering Pines. Without exception, these newbies absolutely love the experience and leave with the bar set very high for their future dining tastes!

Food was delicious however we had to wait way to long for our entre. I do believe they forgot about us. At one point in the wait our waiter asked if we had gotten our desert.

Charming, quiet restaurant outside the bustle of the city. From appetizer to dessert, food is superb. Extensive wine list, my wife enjoyed the special cocktail of the evening a tart apple mojito. The lamb chops are wonderful, with a perfect sauce to accompany them, and the steak diane was delicious. We highly recommend this place if you're looking for a quiet and leisurely dinner.

It is a lovely escape from the world. It feels like you are in an Italian villa having fine French cuisine. There are cozy fireplaces. Quite tables with soft music. An elegant waiter. Delicious food. Pleasant B&B as well.

We decided to go celebrate our daughters completion of her final college exam with dinner and drinks. The staff member David was very personable and made us feel right at home. Dinner was great! Steaks, Duck and pork along with soups and dessert. Every detail was spot on. Great place to enjoy a very relaxing dinner with friends or family.

I've wanted to try Whispering Pines for quite some time. It has a nice atmosphere and the server was very professional. We were provided with hot bread that was delicious. The food was good, but not exceptional as I was expecting. I ordered the jumbo shrimp appetizer, which was 4 perfectly cooked shrimp of a nice size ($12). I also had the Warmed Smoked Duck Salad ($13), which was cooked to perfection as well. I also ordered the three cheese tortellini appetizer, which was bland ($10). I took it home but never ate it. My dining companion ordered the Sweet Corn-Crab Bisque ($7) and the Herbs-Potato Crusted Salmon Filet ($24), which were good. We did not order wine because we did not want a bottle and the by-the-glass menu is limited. Overall, it was a good dinner in a nice location that cost $100 for 2 people without wine or dessert.

Excellent. I left a Valentines Day review, which wasn’t glowing, but was honest under the specific circumstances. We went back for our anniversary, and they did exactly what I expected. They more than made up for it, and it was excellent. It was the Whispering Pines experience for which they are known. I would highly recommend. Excellent all the way around, and a special thanks to David.
