My wife and I went to the Black Duck for New Years Eve. What a wonderful experience! We had a reservation. When we arrived we were greeted by the owner/chef who had the hostess direct us to our "table for two" and took our wine bottle.

My favorite meal/restaurant hands down after living in over 3 different states and several cities. Always an inventive experimental menu in a home style upscale atmosphere that leaves you feeling welcomed and unbelievably satisfied, intriged and palette tickeled.

My husband and I both enjoyed our meals here on the night of the Cape May Christmas parade. Our service was perfect. The staff was very attentive. The restaurant was decorated for the holidays. We would definitely go back again.

I had the pumpkin bisque which was excellent as an app and for the main course I and my wife both had the half duck entree. We both agreed was awesome. Call for reservations the place is a little small but worth visiting if you are in the area.

A lovely find - we are so grateful to the reviewers who came before us and recommended this restaurant and its phenomenal cuisine. We had only a few days in Cape May and dined at two other 'top 5' restaurants on Trip Advisor. Black Duck, though lower rated, was the best experience of the three. Loved the innovative menu, the...
