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.

“Excellent food, don't miss it”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

My husband and I loved this place so much, we ate there 2 nights in a row while in Cape May at Christmas time. The have a lobster risotto appetizer that is wonderful as well as the seafood risotto entree. They are a little stingy with the bread basket, they bring you 2 rolls for 2 people (1 small roll per person). You have to ask for more, if you want more. The food is so well made and fresh. Ask to eat in the back room, it's quieter back there. Will definitely return and wish there was a place like this where I live. Service is very good too.

Went to Tishas and the food was fantastic! Sat outside with our bottle of wine and had a great dinner. They accommodated my Dairy and Gluten free diet. Even had dessert!

“Excellent restaurant!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

We celebrated our 40th anniversary by having our dinner at Tisha's. We had the opportunity to ask a couple of frequent travelers to Cape May where we should eat, and this was their recommendation. They were right! The service was excellent, and we had several courses. The food was outstanding, nice and piping hot! Both my husband and I agreed that we liked everything we were served. The restaurant isn't very big, so we made a reservation earlier in the day, and when we entered, we got the only table left that wasn't occupied. A number of people came in wanting to dine but were turned away. I don't know that you would want to go here for a quick meal, but we only had this nice dinner and have not been there for lunch. That said, we would definitely go here again when we re-visit Cape May. I highly recommend Tisha's. But DEFINITELY make a reservation!!

“Reliably Good”
Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

We have a second home in Cape May and enjoy Tisha's all year. Especially good are the Thai mussels and the pork chop. The pasta is delicious but not al dente as we learned it was pre-cooked so they could handle many orders. Try to stay out of the back room as the noise level can be high. Service friendly and good and price is very fair. It' s byo or Cape May wine which may be a pleasant surprise.
