Restaurant Review

Located in the nineteenth-century Victorian Hewitt Wellington hotel, Whispers is an upscale BYOB restaurant providing a charming turn of the century setting for a fine dining experience.

This is an ideal place for 55+ diners to celebrate a romantic or special occasion.

The decor is French with an intimate dining room complete with chandeliers and comfortable furniture, yet it has an atmosphere of casual elegance.

The new American menu is creatively prepared using fresh ingredients and home made pastas.

While Whispers is BYOB, in the event you didn't bring a bottle the local wine shop owner Joe Eagan will be happy to recommend a bottle and even deliver it table side.

The service is attentive and friendly.

Not recommended for kids.

Whispers is open 7 nights a week beginning at 5:30pm

Open Valentines Day, Easter, Mother's Day, Thanksgiving. Christmas Eve and New Years Eve.

How Do We Review (analyze) Restaurants?

New Jersey Leisure Guide strives to provide objective restaurant reviews .

The methodology used is research, analysis driven --- as opposed to that of a single restaurant critic or a viewer comment posting board.

Data is gathered from our viewers e-mail restaurant comments, Internet research, and professional restaurant critics. The data is sorted, (weeding out the obvious biased, "bone to pick",  and out of consensus comments), analyzed, and the review is created.
