Exceptional!

I am a local and have been to most restaurants in Cape May County. In addition, my career takes me out of state/country over 100 days a year. I write this to qualify my next statement: this was a fantastic meal and experience. I visited M'OCEAN for the first time in June with business... read more

This place had the windows open at street level and the view of the beach was good, but the distraction was many flies all over everything

Not quite sure why there are so many negative reviews on this nice restaurant. This is our 3rd year and all of our party has always enjoyed the food here. The service can be a little spotty but hey, these are young twenty somethings new at their summer job. They are not Parisian waiters with decades of experience. The food... More

This is, without a doubt, the worst "fine dining" restaurant that I've tried in Cape May. Let's start with the only positives of the place: the servers and hostess were friendly, the view (beach) is nice, and the decor is suitable (tablecloths, etc.). Now, let's get to the many reasons that I gave this place one star: 1) The music... More

Enjoyed eating here with the beautiful view. The truffle fries and lobster bisque were very good. The sushi was good but nothing to rave about. Worth it for the gorgeous ocean view though expensive.

Well... Our reservation wasn't ready for nearly 35 Minutes after our arrival. No big deal I figure, as they usher us to their Martini bar for a beverage. After noticing a table open for the previous 15 minutes, I ask the hostess about it, to which she says "Oh! Right... Yes... Come this way please". She Completely forgot about us.... More

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.
