Excellent food

We chose this restaurant for an anniversary dinner. For reasons that I do not understand, we had two different wait staff, which made our experience seem impersonal. We ordered two seafood martinis and then were asked if we wanted to share one. Truly a wonderful appetizer. We both ordered seafood... read more

This was our first time at LA Verandah. My husband and I split the chargrill oysters and were very tasty. My husband ordered grouper, which was on their regular menu and I had a pasta special, with shrimp and scallops. The sauce was a mildly spicy red sauce. We shared an apple tart, with ice cream for dessert. There was... More

From the first taste of the entrée that I ordered. My taste buds went WOW! I tried very hard to finish the entire plate because it was so delicious, but I failed. The music, décor and service made me feel like I had traveled out of the States for my pasta dish. Ten stars for La Verandah restaurant. Eve Newton

La Verandah, in the Hotel Alcott is a wonderful place to dine in Cape May. The service is friendly as well as professional and knowledgeable. Their specials as well as their main menu was exceptional. We were a party of four, and we each had something different,and all four of us raved about our dishes and appetizers. We are from... More

Food was very good and located in the Hotel Alcott which is convenient to the beach. We also attended a wedding there and it was nicely done with good wait staff.

the wait staff were over extended that night, it seems someone booked a party of 10~12, and it became more because it was a bridal reception (?). And then someone (or two) scheduled to work didn't show up. The Hostess (owner's daughter) scurried about, filling in and setting tables. buss staff severed and cleared, but they were busy too!

After walking out off two places in the mall we made the right call and hit La Verandah. Great setting; very elegant and classy, yet somewhat casual. We started off with their version of shrimp cocktail which was grilled shrimp in a mango/papaya salsa which was outstanding. My wife had the grouper over mushroom risotto and I had Chilean Sea...

I agree with other reviews that La Verandah is one of the best kept secrets. It is just a few blocks from the majority of restaurants and shopping but is well worth walking or driving to. There are parking meters or you could park on a side street. My husband and I were so in love with the food that... More

Try the lobster bisque, lamb dish or the halibut. My husband and I are still craving those dishes. Oh, and they had these special grilled oysters--can't really describe them, but they were INCREDIBLE. All around great time at the hotel and the restaurant.
