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.

Not your typical beach fare. Eclectic menu and nice specials. Very attentive wait staff. A bit pricey, but a treat. Also BYOB.

“An excellent meal”
Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

We've been to Tisha's several times- it's consistently wonderful. It's fairly large and also has seating in front and out back so can accommodate a fair number of people. All entrees include a choice of salads which I very much appreciate. I had the salmon and shrimp in a Thai chili sauce and loved it. Classic Thai flavor profile- both sweet and slightly spicy at the same time. Other entrees included the crab cakes, seared scallops with risotto and penne with broccoli rabe, seared shrimp and Gorgonzola cheese sauce. We all loved out choices and tried each others. And the service was warm and friendly. We've been enjoying Tishas for at least 12 years and it remains a favorite!

“Nice evening”
Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

The mussels were fabulous!! Great ambience. The food was delicious although my fish was over sauced and could have shined in its own. Overall really great experience

“Always a Pleasure”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

We have visited Tisha's several times and decided to go during the height of the summer season. Took our wine with us and had a fabulous experience. I had the honey ginger salmon which was wonderful while my husband had the filet alexander with jumbo lump crab. We have always had a nice experience with Tisha and will definitely return in the fall to enjoy again and again. We were surprised to see a young lady (with a bathing suit and cover up) and her date come in a be seated at the back outside dining area.

“Great place for lunch”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

We enjoyed lunch here. Although the service was rather slow, the food itself was really quite good. The fried oyster po boy was delicious. We would definitely go back again on our next visit to Cape May.
