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

One might think there was no need for another upscale restaurant among the many fine dining venues in Cape May. But M'Ocean not only is excellent but INTERESTING. Our meal started with a "peartini" - a vodka martini with a pear taste - but not too sweet. The veal sweetbreads were outstanding, and the chunk of endive a great touch.... More

First night back in Cape May and we decided to give this new restaurant a try. The view from the porch area was spectacular, and the service was great. The food is pricey, but overall worth it. We ate the mosaic salad (pretty but just okay), the lobster Caesar salad (delicious!), and crab cocktail for starters. Our entrees were the... More

Only open a few weeks as M'Ocean and this restaurant is running like a place that has been going for a few years. Excellent, fresh, clean tasting, inventive food. Smooth and superb service. Fabulous atmosphere. Wait staff attentive. This is just what Cape May needed. We were blown away by the whole experience. Also, great cocktails and excellent wine list.... More

On our last night in Cape May, friends joined us for dinner. I relied on trip advisor to help me find a restaurant. Reviews of M'Ocean seemed pretty favorable and it was in walking distance. The view of the beach was fantastic. Beer selection was uninspired. Menu was VERY short... And we had a guest with multiple food allergies. The... More

Found M'Ocean by accident as it has recently taken over a space that also had a great reputation. Lucky for us!

We stayed way longer than planned as the cocktails were incredible (Marcello was a great bartender),... More

This upscale place was awesome! The variety of items offered was nice. We opted for all seafood since we were at the beach in the summer. The portions were large and the prices were just right. We were sat in the enclosed balcony area which was a nice view of the ocean. Some of the food was too pretty to... More
