Stopped here for dinner with the family. There was something for everyone, even the kids, as well as live music.

This was the first time there since it was M Ocean. Sat out on the enclosed porch and I would say take a heavy sweater, it was cold out there. Dave and I both had the gaspocho with smoked seafood on top and that was very good, we also shared their special app which was a smoked salmon dip which... More

A foodie's paradise. Chef prepared contrast of textures and tastes in short list of entries. Once you taste the food, you wouldn't mind the limited menu. Had the thickest, juicy large best cooked pork chop ever. Be prepared to pay $$$. Ask for porch seating so you can look at the beach and watch the sun set! M'Ocean offers a... More

Beautiful view and great service but average food. My husband and I both got the sea bass and for $30 a plate we were expecting delicious piece of fish. What we got was average or below average.

Why are you using my review from Martini Beach Days. Sorry, but I have not eaten here under the new chef menu, I think it is terrible that they are using the reviews and photos of the previous chefs food. Wishing luck, but, HEY, NEW CHEF, get your reviews on your OWN MERITS, INSTEAD of plagiarizing the previous chefs accomplishments!!

I made reservations at this restaurant for a weekend away with my husband. The reviews I read were mixed, but I decided to give it a try. The location is lovely.....overlooking the beach and quite a nice view. Our server Melissa was friendly enough, but seemed very hurried as we tried to ask a couple of questions, she seemed she...

Best sunset view on Cape May when you sit on the porch. Apps were an artist inspired mosaic salad of tomatoes, mozzarella, watermelon and avocado, served with aged balsamic. It was refreshing, light and delicious. My husband preferred his pork belly appetizer. He also enjoyed his 45 day dry aged coffee brined cowboy ribeye steak with Shakespeare stout jus, dill... More

If you feel like eating dinner in a refrigerator this is the place for you. We started out on a very unhappy note and things went from bad to worse. I had made a reservation several days in advance because we ate at this restaurant on the Saturday night of Labor Day weekend. When we got to the restaurant I... More

Did not eat at the restaurant but went and had a pear martini which was excellent. The food I saw looked good. I have to say the bartender Zach was excellent with all the customers. He was attentive and had a wonderful personality. I would recommend their martinis and the next time I want to try a meal.
