Excellent choices prepared with fine dining in mind. Further, the staff greeting and serving you makes the experience that much more worth whiled. Finally the history of the building - restaurant and adjacent hotel is something very special. I recommend both. You will go back to Union Park and the Hotel McComber each time you visit Cape May as we... More

We went to Union Park for New Year's Eve. We have gone several times over the past several years and Union Park has become out "go to" restaurant in Cape May. "We" are a large party of eight. The menu options were tremendous and we struggled to narrow our choices, clearly we would have wanted one of everything! My wife... More

Absolutely wonderful. Dinner and service are always superb. This was our second New Years dinner at Union Park and they never disappoint. We visit frequently because we just can't find the same kind of dining experience anywhere. You will always be happy here with both the excellent fine dining and service.

This is our second New Year's dinner here. I was a little disappointed in my lobster tail dinner, but my husband really liked his chilean sea bass. We wish the portions were larger and that the meal wasn't as rushed. I felt the waiters hovering around to take plates as quickly as I finished. I know there are three seatings... More

Outstanding menu, food and service on New Years Eve with good friends - it doesn't get better than that. Union Park was nicely decorated for NYE and the food and service was spectacular. We got to try some dishes that we normally would not and were not disappointed. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the price fix menu ($65 pp) had... More

Very costly for what we got. Food wasn't that great. Could've gone somewhere else and spent a fraction of the cost and received s better meal. We won't be back. Sorry.
