Happy to find a restaurant with such elevated cuisine. Pretty decor and very good service in elegant surroundings. A well kept secret!

I took my girlfriend here March 3rd for an anniversary dinner. Food in general does not get much better than this. A complimentary crab cake bite starts the evening off. Keep in mind this is a BYOB, which we brought a bottle of our favorite pinot noir. I had the lobster over crab cake...what a fabulous combination! We loved everything... More

Nice quiet winter evening in Spring Lake NJ. BYOB in this quaint B&B and restaurant for that special event or date night. We had a lovely dinner and enjoyed every bite. It is a bit pricey but worth it.

The place sounds like a gentleman's club. It certainly is not. Upscale food, served in a Victorian setting with capable service. Sean was on point, neither intrusive or absent. He anticipated everything, something you don't find often. Food was delicious, buratta , chicken and filet. Cookie cake was downright heavenly. Whispers is BYOB. Many times, Jersey BYO's have stemware that... More

We had a small wedding dinner party for about 35 family members and close friends. Since this was a winter/off season event, we had the main dining room to ourselves which was the perfect size for our party. The food was delicious and there were plenty of entree options to suit everyone's tastes. Both the filet mignon and lobster dish... More

No complaints at all about the food and the service was relatively good. We shared the lobster and the filet and both were expertly prepared. What lowers the score here is that we felt cramped and a little rushed throughout the evening. One less table in the dining room would probably be perfect! Also, the noise level was somewhat raised... More

Absolutely, without a doubt, probably the best restaurant that's 4 or 5 star quality we ever had dinner in! From appetizer, to entree and dessert...This place is outstanding!! We ate there this past weekend for our anniversary and their wait staff is top notch. Ask for either Maria or Kristen as your waitress for the evening. Their portions are just... More

Yes, it's a "special occasion" type restaurant. Very elegant dining room, very professional wait staff, and wonderful food. We visited in December 2016 on a quiet week night. Our meal was top notch. Perfectly cooked steak, interesting and tasty appetizers, and great fish entree. It is a bit pricey, but so are many other restaurants in this area. BYOB, so... More

Went for Christmas dinner with my family. They had a beautiful limited Christmas dinner menu. I had a steak that was perfect and the other items on the menu were also enjoyed by the members of our group. The setting and service was spectacular. This will be our choice for family events in the future.
