Best meal I've had in Cape May!

Had lobster bisque, seared scallops and pasta with shellfish. It was amazing! Dined on the front porch of the hotel. Alan was extremely helpful and very welcoming.

That's something we all appreciate. Our Cajun oyster appetizers were a special of the night! They were unique and delicious. Our following entrees were pleasing to our palates... 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

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 entrees and they were wonderful. The chocolate espresso dessert 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

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!
