Nice place

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.

La Verandah is a bit out of the way but excellent. Great atmosphere and we had the nicest waitress. Service was very good and so was our dinners. Had the spinach salads which were very good. I had the scallops very tasty and cooked to perfection, my husband had the red snapper which he said was very good also. We... More

The most overused cliche in restaurant reviews is the ubiquitous "hidden gem." Usually, this gets applied to establishments that are neither "hidden" nor anywhere near "gems." However, La Verandah is one of the few places that deserves that moniker. It is off the beaten track of CM in a charming little place called the Hotel Alcott. The service is personable,... More

Spinach salad was good. Halibut was great. Snapper was aweful. Overlooked and tasteless. Won't be back. Too many really good places. We also made special requests of the waiter that we wanted to split the main courses. He listened, said he could do it, then delivered both meals together. Saying sorry. Guess what it's not okay to listen and ignore.

We had reservations recently at La Verandah, but when we arrived the power for all of South Jersey was out. The staff, though obviously slightly stressed, still welcomed us and offered to open our wine (the restaurant is a BYOB), offered us a complimentary cheese plate, and allowed us to wait for a bit to see if the power issue...

Excellent service, excellent food , never rushed. Our favorite restaurant in Cape May. Hard to get in on weekends...Weddings, events etc. Probably shouldn't send this? Want to keep this secret!
