While visiting Cape May, NJ, the four of us randomly picked Tisha's out of many restaurants. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious and fresh. The service great. The place clean and bright. It was a pleasure. We've all put this on our "do it again" list.

The food was fantastic! Went in for lunch with my children while shopping in Cape May. The prices are high which should be expected for quality food with excellent service. A light lunch (Cobb salad, burger, chicken fingers) was served at the perfect temperature and quickly. The food was fresh and the menu has a great selection. Will definitely go... More

Nice place right on the Mall. Service was very good. Grilled chicken salad with the usual stuff was $20, but very fresh and good. I had the Chef's burger with jalapenos, caramelized onions and Velveeta cheese. Odd combo but extremely good. I was disappointed in the fries. Definitely frozen from a bag, and not even full sized diner fries. Got... More

We love this place, but were disappointed this year when we were told that the calamari appetizer was sold out. Sheesh. . .I was thinking about this wonderful dish for the entire last year. I did order the scallops over risotto, with a Caesar Salad first, and all was wonderful. BYOB--so bring your own wine. Dogs are accommodated on the... More

We have enjoyed every dinner at Tisha's (been going there for 3 years). The calamari is excellent, but unfortunately they were out on our most recent visit to Tisha's. As a result I discovered the pork tenderloin. It was a nightly special, but they should add it to the regular menu. Delicious and tender. I had the broccoli rabe and... More

During our long weekend in Cape May, I was continually impressed by the food, and Tisha's was where I had my favorite meal. It was scallops and risotto in a Thai curry sauce. It is fairly reasonably priced (comparable to other nice restaurants in the area), and has BYOB which is a nice touch. If I find myself back in... More

Every time we are in Cape May we have dinner at Tisha's. Consistently great food and staff. Nice to have dinner after 8P. Things are quieter and less hectic.

The food is EXCELLENT. The house specialty salad is a must. What flavor and the kale Cesare is also fab. The calamari was fantastic, great flavor and the Risotto(seafood) was... More

After a nice day we had a very enjoyable meal. I had a special pork loin over mashed potato My wife had the scallops over risotto both excellent. Portion sizes were probably the perfect size but I was hungry later. Service was excellent

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.
