This new restaurant has good reviews but I am not sure why. it has great views but at least on our visit, that was largely all. We went on a Sunday evening and the place was less than half full and emptied as we ate. That should have meant good service. Unfortunately, no. It took forever to get our drinks,... More

By far one of the best meals we had in Cape May. The atmosphere and the view of the ocean is great. Started out with a cocktail made with local fresh garnish outstanding. My appetizer of clams on the half shell were great and had a whipped lemon to top the clams, My entree was an unbelieveable swordfish topped with... More

Hope it was an off night for the chef and the staff. 5 of us and only 3 said their food was good, 1 plate (45 day aged rib eye) was sent back only to return as if nothing changed and ended up returning it. Can say the Sea Bass was very good along with the salmon. We will try... More

I have been raving about this new restaurant in Cape May since I took a large group there in the spring when they first opened. If it hadn't been one of the best meals that me and every single one in that group of 9 had eaten, I may not of been so disappointed this time, maybe??? I don't know... More

After reading several other reviews, we decided to venture to something other than our traditional good restaurants . The menu is quite short and heavy in raw bar appetizers . This would have been ok, but the raw bar selections were just mediocre. Ceviche was disappointing; just not good unfortunately. The popular mosaic salad was fine to look at, though... More

Had a unique dining experience recently @ Cape May's new and exciting restaurant M'Ocean. The atmosphere, service and most importantly the food was excellent. From the first moment you enter this establishment you're greeted with a staff that conveys a feeling of warmth and makes you feel that they care about your visit. The menu is unique as well as...

This is a lovely setting for a restaurant. Great view from the porch. Pleasant staff. Server was very nice but immediately went into the ceviches of the day right as we sat down before taking drink orders. Wine by the glass was a blend it was fine. The food was fine nothing like these over the top reviews. The watermelon... More

One thing that Cape May was lacking was a great raw bar in town! Some place with a great bar, inventive choices like a variety of ceviche dishes, oysters and other raw bar staples. This along with a great vibe and service all add up to M'Ocean. Foodies delight - add this to your must try list foe Cape May!

My wife and I were celebrating our 24th anniversary and decided to give your restaurant a try. From the initial greeting by Amir, the manager, the evening took a wonderful swing to delightful. The sincere warm greeting put us at ease and we were directed to the bar for a unbelievably delicious Pear Martini suggested by the mixologist because calling... More
