That's Petite Filet Mignon and Lump Crab Cake a family favorite. The appetizers are excellent, love both oysters on half shell and Rockefeller, as well as the tuna tartar. They make a great strip steak as well as a equally tender pork chop. Try sweet ricotta doughnuts with cinnamon sugar for dessert. I do miss Steve though great way to... More

My friend and I had an extremely pleasant dining experience at Ebbitt's Room in Virginia Hotel. It began with having drinks in a very attractive comfortable bar setting. Great place for a drink and quiet conversation. Our server was over the top friendly and offered great menu suggestions. Dining atmosphere quaint, old in a good way, romantic. Food was outstanding,... More

I can say it was nice and the food was good but It was very expensive and I didn't think it was worth the money, I really enjoyed the butternut squash soup and the service was very good

The Ebbitt Room has been a long time favorite of ours, and our dinner here this week reminded us why. The room is warm and relaxing, service is wonderful and the food is just incredible. The deviled eggs are a must, always changing and delicious. The short rib special was delicious, accompanied by seasonal vegetables. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the... More

Chances are, you will enjoy your meal at the Ebbitt Room, as we did this past summer, but there were a couple things I noticed that made me think, "Not like the old days." I used to tell a favorite story about the good service that we enjoyed in the Ebbitt Room not that many years ago. I had dropped... More

The Ebbitt Room offers a warm and inviting dining room. We enjoyed delightful dinner music by a famous Cape May pianist. A little pricey but well worth it.

My husband and I visit cape may at least once a year. We usually look forward to dining at the Ebbitt Room, however the food wasn't up to our usual expectations. The menu was limited and the taste was subpar. The scallops appetizer was miniscule and the halibut was overcooked and dry. Bread wasn't offered until we asked for it.... More

We enjoyed the early bird prefix menu. The deviled eggs sounded so enticing that my husband and I both choose them for our appetizers. They did not disappoint. The fanciest and most tasty deviled eggs I've ever consume! The steak was amazingly seasoned and the salmon was flavorful. The vegetables, unfortunately, were not on par with the proteins. They were... More
