We were seated right away, and given complimentary glasses of champagne for my husband's 40th birthday. Our server had wonderful recommendations for us. We tried the signature appetizer, the deviled eggs. We were a little hesitant, but they were DELICIOUS! There were three eggs, each topped with a fried banana, steak, or calamari. I had the scallops & my husband... More

We went for dinner and as soon as you walked all you saw were these beautiful balloons everywhere. You definitely felt like it was New Year's Eve. The place was decorated so beautifully and the three course meal was amazing. I also enjoyed the champagne as soon as we were seated.

We always dine at the Ebbit Room when we visit Cape May. Many of their foods come from their local farm ~ their deviled egg appetizer is incredibly creative and delicious!!! We love having a drink in the bar before dinner; their homemade popcorn creation changes nightly and is wonderful! I wish the popcorn would come out at 4:00 when... More

We had dinner here this past weekend and were very pleased. Located within the Virginia Hotel it has great decor and style with a nice seating area and bar before you enter the main dining area. The service was attentive and not overbearing and the food very good. Most of the meat is sourced from a local farm the area... More

It has been a while since we dined at the Ebbitt Room and it did not disappoint. We had very nice appetizers of tuna tatare and a lobster salad. We were surprised by the nice portions of lobster and that the tuna was without any filler. Pork shank and the filet/crab cake were our entrees along with some deliciously prepared... More

Stopped at the Ebbitt Room with a large group of friends on a bar crawl the Saturday before Christmas. I have heard of the Ebbitt Room, but had never been. What a cool place! Nice bar area with some comfy chairs and a friendly piano player playing Christmas music and taking requests. Would love to go back to eat, stay,... More

I came here recently with my family and my husband. The restaurant and the hotel in which its in is beautiful, however it was a tight squeeze into the restaurant. Most tables were packed in like sardines and the tables around us seemed annoyed that a group of 6 was now being smushed into their section. We also were so... More

Our friends had been talking up this restaurant as the culinary highlight of our recent trip. So maybe I entered with high expectations, but based on value for money I was sadly disappointed. Our 8:45 reservation turned into a 9:15 seating, despite the table being ready at 8:45. No reason given for delay but it just made us hungrier. We... More
