My family visits Cape May every summer, and in past years we've had several lovely meals at the Ebbitt Room. The atmosphere was elegant and sophisticated, and so was the food. Having dinner at the Ebbitt Room was a special night out. Then came this year. . . . and things sure have changed! We had dinner a few weeks... More

We had an early reservation and were seated 10 minutes late. After being seated we had to wait 15 minutes because our waiter was late for work. This created a problem for us because we had reservations for a tour that evening. While the food was excellent we had to rush due to their issue. Price was very expensive and... More

Every dish ordered from my party of 5 was exceptional. The dining room (located in the Virginia Hotel) was nicely decorated and very cozy, offering a nice alternative to more hectic venues in Cape May. The service was prompt and attentive and the drinks ordered from the bar were very creative.

Had dinner here in early June. The food was good, but nothing special. The service adequate. If I return to Cape May, this won't be my first choice -- though the restaurant obviously has loyal fans.

Delicious is an understatement! The menu offers the perfect amount of options so that everything offered us fresh...farm to table. We had tomatoes with grilled corn and an eggplant fish over arugula. Mains were cartelized sea scallops ( small portion, IMHO) and perfect pork chop. Ambience was beautiful...very CapeMay upscale. We were too full for dessert. Worth the money...

The Ebbitt Room in the Virginia Hotel is very quaint and quiet. Wonderful place to go for an after dinner drink. Now I want to stay at the Virginia too!

No matter where we are eating for the evening we like to start with a cocktail at the Ebbit room bar. I like to sit at the bar my bride likes the sunroom off the bar. Both are great for listening to the music of the evening. A wide selection of spirits and Cocktails are mixed with expertise.The Beach Plum... More

The Ebbitt Room is like a hidden treasure in Cape May. The food simply amazing.....from their tasty main dishes to their to die for desserts. The setting is quite romantic, and the service impeccable! A definite top restaurant in Cape May!
