Whispers Ratings and Reviews
Nice atmosphere. Good service. Solid food, but nothing memorable. We shared buratta app and a Dali’s. My partner enjoyed her filet. I️ had the lobster special signature meal. Less than the described deshelled 1.5 lb. lobster (missing one of the claws) over a crab cake on top of spinach. Spinach was best part. Sat in a taco shell on top of a bed of mashed potatoes. Did not get the combination. The waiters ended up teaming and we recovering from a mid meal missing waiter lapse. All around, it was pleasant, just nothing memorable, especially for the price.
This was our first time dining at Whispers. The waitress, Maria, was very knowledgeable about the menu selections. We found the scallop appetizer quite pricey. The salads and entrees were superb. Being a BYOB establishment helps to make a somewhat expensive meal palatable .
We are never disappointed when we go to Whispers. Everything is outstanding! Our daughter is a very picky eater, but she will try anything at this restaurant. The melding of the flavors is unbelievable. Of course, having the best waiter of all time, was are real plus. Our request for bread pudding was the icing on the cake. Thank you.
The food was outstanding, the service was a bit slow at times, especially considering we were at the first seating of the evening. The noise level was much too loud to enjoy a romantic dinner. I had mentioned in the reservation that it was our anniversary, and all that they did was put a candle on the dessert we paid for and a cursory Happy Anniversary. As a restaurant, they were great, but for a special occasion, not so much.
We had a lovely birthday celebration dinner with our daughters and their spouses. This was our first time at Whispers. We had read online reviews and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent. Our server was very attentive and professional. We were seated in a smaller dining room which was quiet and well appointed. Definitely will recommend it to others.
We had an outstanding meal at Whispers. This is our third time visiting this restaurant. Unfortunately, the service was not what we have seen there in the past. There were two servers working as a team tending to ten tables. There was no one serving water, and we weren’t asked how our meal was until it was over. Both servers were very pleasant, but it was simply just too much for two people.
Pros -- fresh ingredients, excellent food prep. Great waiter -- timed meal well, did all the little things that only true pros know but veteran diners appreciate. BYO. Have not had a better meal anywhere.
Cons -- tables are tight, making for fairly high noise level and difficult navigating between. Also, as has become the custom in too many places, menu had 1/2 dozen specials recited beforehand without pricing. Would prefer restaurants just print out a little cheat sheet to review. How often do you have to ask a waiter or fellow diner, "what was that second special again?" A tad high on pricing vs. the market.
We had a fabulous birthday dinner for my husband. From the moment we were seated in the lovely dining room, the staff pampered us. We were lucky enough to have Layla as our server. She was amazing! Fun, efficient, and lovely to talk to. She made the amazing food even better. Can't wait to go back!
The lobster crepe is to die for! A++++++
We enjoyed our second anniversary dinner celebration at Whispers. The food was outstandingly delicious. The service was attentive, friendly, and professional. The atmosphere was romantic. It is pricey, and entrees were a little more expensive than shown on the menu posted on Open Table website. Overall, a great restaurant choice for a special celebration.
Being married for 20 years my wife was do to get a great dinner, and Whisper's was the right place to go. Our servers Marie & David are very friendly and helpful with the menu and specials. My wife had the Jersey tomatoes and goat cheese salad to start, than the local black bass , finished off with a cappucino and a dish of fresh berry's, I had the scallops followed by the lobster ( out of the shell ) with mashed potato, spinish, crab cake, and all in a lite pastery shell. This was one of the best meals I have ever had in my life.
Went with 2 friends for Saturday night dinner. Dining room was packed and lively. Food was great as usual. Big portions and heavy meals. You will not leave hungry. Bring your own Booze and it is not near a liquor store - so do NOT forget to bring your bottle. Service is excellent. You are extremely close to your neighbors so NOT somewhere I would go if you want to have a quiet private dinner.
