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.

This restaurant is on the pedestrian shopping mall in Cape May and was an unplanned luncheon stop. We had chicken and avocado wraps with a side disk of french fries. The food was superb. Later, we heard other visitors raving about dinner at this restaurant. We will definitely visit again

We decided to try Tisha's to take advantage of a Restaurant.com gift promotion and are so glad we did. The food was delicious! I tried the special of the day-mahi mahi-and my husband had the crab cake and peppered shrimp. Dinners included choice of garden or caesar salads. The caesar was a generous portion and very fresh. We enjoyed sitting outdoors on the Washington Street mall area of town--great for people watching as we ate (could be a disadvantage if you don't want people watching you as you dine, or if there is a noisy group sitting outdoors at neighboring Dairy Queen!) Several people stopped to look at the menu posted outside and moved on - I think believing the prices were a bit high - most entrees in high $20-low $30 range. We felt that the quality of the food justified the price. A wine list was available in addition to the BYOB policy.The service was friendly and attentive. The sorbet between salad and main course was a nice touch. We will go back if we are in the area in the future.

My girlfriends and I have been traveling to Cape May annually the past 9 years. We make it a point to eat at least once at Tisha's, during our visit, its that good. The food is constantly good year after year and we look forward to next year's dinner during our annual trip.

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner last night with my husband...we are in Cape May for our fourth wedding anniversary.
We found Tisha's on Restaurant.com and enjoyed 25$ off of our meal. We are not drinkers but other guests had brought their own bottle of wine and it seemed like a fantasatic addition to their meal.

The restaurant is located in an area that is a "walking-only" shopping area within the village of Cape May. The location was wonderful since it was within walking distance of our B&B. We were greeted immediatley and we sat outside to people watch. Our server Margaux was very pleasant....we were served our water immediately but did wait quite a while for my husband's soda... the salads also were delayed but well worth the wait.
I have to say our dinner was SO DELICIOUS. Bob had the Steak Diane special and I hAd the Past Puttanesca. Both dishes were PERFECT... I even took the small amount of my food left over to heat up and serve with an omelette in the morning... We will go back to Tisha's because the ambiance, the food and the location can't be beat.

This was our fourth visit to Tisha's and just last year we used American Express gift cards to pay for a portion of our meal. This year when we tried to do the same thing the manager, Jennifer, came to our table and parctically throw the check at my husband saying you cannot use these, pick several and the rest of the bill must be put on a credit card. She was very rude and it was embarrassing for our entire party of 7. If she had just told my husband that there was a problem and could they discuss it away from the table it would have been fine . She handled the situation very poorly like we were trying to get away with something. Unfortunately, it will be our last visit to Tisha's which was our favorite restaurant in Cape May.
