We chose Black Duck based on its reviews, and decided to try the Early Menu, offered from 5 to 5:30 p.m. An abbreviated menu, 3 courses for $25. We did not have reservations, but were seated right away. The restaurant is a series of rooms, light and airy. The prettiest, in my opinion, is the back sunroom. Val was our... More

Great place to go and have some dinner. They have a great deal for $25.00 where you get an appetizer, main course and desert included. Definitely worth it. Our only concern is that they did not serve the desert at the same time they served the coffee but besides that, fresh food and excellent service.

This restaurant is marvelous. The restaurant itself has a great atmosphere. The food was superb. I had the salmon special and the flavors in this dish were very complimentary . It was one of the best salmon dishes I have had. My compliments to the chef.

The food was great. Every meal from salmon to filet and crab cakes were excellent . We will definitely return. This place was recommended to us and we were glad we tried it. We will return on all of our return visits to Cape May!!

I love restaurants that treat fresh products with respect. I had salad with fresh corn, sweet tomatoes, tiny radishes and avocados. And the best sweet perfectly cooked salmon I have ever eaten, on a bed of fresh sauteed vegetables. Yum. My husband loved his scallops and he rarely even orders scallops!

2 couples on a Sunday evening; no problem making a reservation, but restaurant was lively with other guests. The restaurant had a really nice Cape May feel - both in the building exterior and in the dining rooms. BYOB is a plus. Service was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. Food was fantastic - starting with the shrimp toast and... More

We've been coming to cape may for seven years and just recently discovered the Black Duck on Sunset. We opted for the early bird menu. My husband had the crab cakes and thought they were the best he's ever had. I had the salmon and it was delightfully seasoned and presented. The wait staff was attentive but not annoying. We...

We were immediately given water and hot bread rolls - very good variety The menu has a lot of choices all of which we desired The specials made it even more difficult to choose For starters we had endamame dumplings with dipping...

Black Duck my our high expectations. When you head out to dinner at the shore you have to have realistic expectations. But when you go to a restaurant with white linen and fine dinning menus and prices, they need to live up to your expectations. The Black Duck did just that,from reservations, to seating,to service and the food. We order... More

I am a foodie who reserves all of her restaurants well before we arrive. Of course most times I use open table but Black Duck is not on open table. Service and server were very good. Instead of an entree I got the PuPu platter which includes all of the appetizers with little salads and dipping sauces. They were all... More
