Atmosphere was nice and relaxing with some tunes from the piano player from time to time made for a great setting. We were celebrating a birthday and the wait staff was very attentive. Food was out of this world. Wonderful experience.

Dining at the White Barn Inn is a truly sublime fine dining experience. From the moment you pull up and two valets open the car doors and point you to entrance you know you will be well attended to. As you enter, you hear the gentle sounds of the piano and are enveloped in the warmth of the elegant barn. The stunning cathedral window with its view of pine trees festooned with lights lends a festive feeling to the space. The food is impeccable (and I did have the Maine Lobster and boy was it delicious as it was prepared). The drinks and wine selections are wonderful. The service is stellar. A must do when in Kennebunk Port and for foodies, worth a trip just for the experience.

The beet pasta, persimmon sorbet, quail , and parsnip cake were delicious and fascinating. The Bourgogne white wine was bland.

Valentine’s Day dinner, always enjoy the White barn . The coat check , valet service, hostess, waiters were excellent. The piano music and ambience lovely. We had the wine pairing - for the price would’ve expected a heavier pour or add another glass ( it was 3 glasses). Food was excellent but would like to see some more salad choices and raw bar options on the menu. Also we did feel slightly rushed but obviously it was Valentines so understandable. We had 530 pm reservation.

The atmosphere is rustic and sophisticated. The food is never fussy, but always dressed well. And the symphony of flavors that you never imagined possible always sit well in the palette.

We decided to have a Christmas Eve dinner in White barn inn. It was our first time here. From the website and the fix menu price we expected more luxurious looking place. Given our past experience. Don’t get me wrong. We had a great time and the staff was very professional. Food was ok. Overall we would rate it a 3 star experience.

Brought menus quickly then very slow coming back for drink orders. Then very slow serving drinks. Steak ordered medium came rare and had to be returned so wait while other diner’s food got cold. Given the price point ($400 for 2) it was disappointing!

We loved the ambiance of the White Barn Inn. Service was quite good . We were a bit disappointed in the food - especially at that price point. Dinner is $125 per person. I started with the Lobster/mushroom tagliatelle. It was not special - not bad but not a stand-out. Next was the Lobster bisque. I've definitely had better. Then, the Kennebunkport Lobster for the main dish. Again, fine but no wow factor. My husband started with the beef tartare, followed by the butternut bisque and then the ribeye. Each of these was average at best compared to similar dishes we've enjoyed elsewhere. It was our most expensive and least enjoyable meal of our stay in Kennebunk. At that price point, we expect to say 'ummmm' with every bite. Instead our response "it's ok". Next time we'll try the bistro.

Welcoming and luxurious with impeccable service and food. Need I say more? More expensive than most but you will not regret spending your money here. Many places like this can be very snooty and not live up to the hype. White Barn Inn restaurant staff were thoughtful yet not intrusive. They told us we had the table for the evening and to take our time. The food and wine pairings were well done, and every single course was exceptional. We will be returning.
