An excellent experience. Servers were attentive but not overzealous. Apps, entrees and dessert were terrific! Great local venue that needs our support. Why not visit soon? You’ll be happy you did. Enjoy!

We had a great time. NYE pre fixe had very quality choices. The rack of lamb was the best I’ve ever had. If you ask for the mint jelly, they have it.

Situated on a quiet, residential street in Spring Lake, this restaurant is classic and elegant. It’s a bit formal and perfect for an elevated experience every day or a special occasion.

Food was exceptional - we had Lobster Bisque, Salad, Filet and Pork Chop on bone. Everything was well seasoned and perfectly cooked. The social distancing was ok - but could have been a bit more spaced out.

Date night was great outdoors on the porch during an unseasonably warm October night. Megan was a great server and took care of us the whole time! Starter crab cakes were delicious! The pesto shrimp pasta and Red Curry Cod special were both exceptional! The chocolate ganache cake with vanilla gelato was a great last taste! Pricey but it’s a BYOB so you will save money on your drinks! Highly recommend - two thumbs up!!

Caught off guard with BYOB...no big deal as they provide you with a source to have wine delivered from local liquor store

Wow... How nice it is to enjoy a wonderful evening of great service and fine dining after 4 months of eating in restaurant parking lots. Planned a surprise birthday party last week and everything was perfect. The food was amazing, we shared the scallop and squid ink pasta special, lobster crepe the mozzarella Burrata and the salad. All delicious. Two had the pork chop special and said "best they ever had", and a filet that was also cooked perfectly. Lastly three had the poached lobster special, which was to die for. Service was impeccable, glad to see that they were able to survive the devastation that the restaurant industry has been through. Can't wait to go back.

This was a wonderful experience and always. With the cold weather coming, we have to decide if we want to dine indoors. We are sincerely thinking about it.

Had our 50th anniversary dinner. We have been here before (2009) and it is still excellent. It was a Thursday night and not crowded (think Covid).Food was excellent.

The service was spotty. My brother-in-law had to get up twice to pour our wine. The server kept reaching over us to serve which was inappropriate. She should of walked around the table and served mannerly. Otherwise the food was excellent.

We had a lot of fruit flys during our meal. Finally the waitress offered us doilies for our wine glasses so the flies couldn’t get in.
My water glass was never refilled and the waitress never knew who had what dish.
The food was good not unbelievable and it is very expensive. We had fun but probably will not go back

The chef has only been there for a few months BUT, my salad was overdressed and the first tuna dish was over cooked. I sent it back and the second try was excellent. We love Whispers and hope they fully recover from COVID when everything gets back to normal (whatever this is going to be!).

Returned to Whispers after a prior excellent experience. Went for my dad’s birthday dinner being taken by my uncle who is a New York foodie, used to going to restaurants fronted by celebrity chefs. He as well as I were not disappointed with my uncle saying it was one of the best meals he has had in years. In this time of covid, the wrap around porch adds charm to the outdoor dining experience. Needless to say, we highly recommend.
