This is a quaint little place in Cape May and quite nice. It was a good spot for a quiet lunch. The crab cake taco special was quite tasty. The prices were a bit high for what we had but that is to be expected in the main tourist area. This is a nice change from the typical bar or... More

There is no other restaurant that I look forward to as much as Tisha's. The food is always consistent and delicious!!! I have always been able to get a reservation and the staff is more than accommodating. We had dinner there on New Year's Eve and the staff stayed cool and organized even with the amount of reservations that they... More

Went to Tisha's to celebrate my wife's birthday with friends. We arrived 10 mins before our reservation and were rudely ordered by the hostess to go back outside and wait. That may work in the summer but not on a cold winter's night. They need to have heaters outside in the winter, or why not nicely invite the guest to... More

This was our second time dining at Tisha's in Cape May in the last few years and this time we decided to try lunch (last time was an unbelievably good Valentine's Day dinner). While the prices are on the high side here, you will find that you get every penny's worth. I had one of the most delicious cheeseburgers of... More

Each time we come to Cape May we eat at Tisha's. The food is consistently delicious and the staff is very attentive. The seafood dishes are always a favorite!

The six of us had a very nice meal here on a Friday night. Being a BYOB saved some money. Our server was busy, but still gave us good service. Our dirty main course plates did sit on the table for over 20 minutes, until we asked they be removed. The were very busy, but no one wants to look... More

Dinner was good - a little expensive for the amount of food received. We left hungry and for the $$$$ we ought to have had a little larger portions...

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.
