Four of us had reservations after the Christmas parade at 7:30pm. We arrived on time and were summarily commanded to wait outside in the cold by a rude hostess with attitude. Not a good start. Fifteen minutes later we were ushered in to a crowded table in the middle of the dining room with no apology. Service was inattentive and... More

No wonder its AWARD winning! The crabcake tacos were amazing and flavorful. Service was great too! DOnt let being on the mall a turn off. Its... More

Tisha's never disappoints us. We grabbed a bottle of wine last weekend and had a gourmet lunch while sitting in their outdoor section. The clam chowder is great and so is the service every time. We'll be back again and again.

Went to Tisha's for my Birthday. I can honestly say that I have a very hard time finding food that wows me. But the seafood risotto was amazing! One tip I would offer is to bring your own wine as it is a BYOB establishment. They do offer bottles of local wine for purchase but I thought the prices a... More

I was so looking forward to dining at this restaurant. I will cut to the chase, half way through the kale Caesar salad I saw a worm crawling on the plate. The restaurant did their best in making this right. They paid for our 2 dinners. The explanation is that it was organic kale.

Appetizers of clam chowder and pumpkin (!!) gnocchi were a great start, followed by a salad of fresh greens, and 2 orders of the seafood papardelle special - YIKES!! Delicious, delicious!

Description
In the Spring of 1988 on the corner of Pacific and Spencer in Wildwood New Jersey, Letitia Negro opened a ten table restaurant known for "Home Cooking". The $9.95 three course price fix menu featured family favorites and "Made from the heart" cuisine. The food, like its Restaurant School graduate chef/owner, was genuine, unique and unforgettable.

The end of Tisha's Home Cooking came early in the 1990's, but in turn became the beginning of Tisha's Fine Dining in Cape May. In 1995, Paul Negro, son of Letitia, and his wife Jennifer continued the tradition here in Cape May. Paul took what he learned from his mother, added his own talent and love for food, and established a great following.

Some things have changed in the city and the restaurant has now moved from the solarium building on the beach to its new home on the Washington Street Mall. No matter where they are Paul and Jennifer will proudly continue the tradition of love and passion for food and people in honor of Tisha, an amazing friend, mother and chef.
