If you are looking for an upscale restaurant for dinner in Cape May, NJ the Union Park is a great place. For a romantic dinner try and get a table in the Library. Also, nice table outside on the porch overlooking the beach.

We take a mini vacation to Cape May every fall with three or four other couples every year. Our dinner to Union Park is one of the highlights. We have tried other Cape May restaurants over the years, but they have not compared well with Union Park, so we no longer try others. The service is always excellent, the food... More

Never had a bad experience at this restaurant. Great atmosphere. Food is always great. Location is ideal for an after-meal walk along Beach Ave.

Whenever we visit Cape May we plan our schedule around our visit to Union Park. We love great food and Inion Park never disappoints. On this particular visit, my steak was absolutely perfect. The service was extraordinary as always even to the extent of remembering our food allergies without having to ask. We can't wait for our next special experience... More

Dined al fresco on the porch; quite nice. Started with scallop appetizer; my wife had asparagus soup. I liked mine better. For mains, I had the daily catch (barramundi) and my wife had scallops. Dessert -- profiteroles -- were frozen and not very good. Service was outstanding. All in all, a nice dinner.

While the food was of excellent quality the restaurant was packed and also was trying to accommodate a wedding party...Service was somewhat slow , coldly professional, and the potential for ambiance broken by the squeezed in patrons

We visit Cape May often and this is always on our bucket list of places to go. This time was no different and Union Park was outstanding again. Unfortunately for us, one in our party was not feeling well and we had to skip out a little early, but the wait staff handled the situation perfectly and accommodated all our... More

We sat outside with a view of the ocean. I had the salmon, my husband had the duck. We both thought our meals were excellant. Service was great.

This was our first meal in Cape May and Union Park didn't disappoint. We ate in the dining room which is lovely. For an appetizer we shared the Duck Charcuterie which was being offered as a special. The duck was prepared five ways with the foie gras being exceptional. My husband had a dozen oysters for dinner and I enjoyed... More
