“A gourmet experience in Cape May”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Having read about this restaurant, I booked my reservation several months in advance. The setting was wonderful, the menu excellent, the service was really great and I had a really beautifully prepared tuna entree with a great salad. It is a BYOB restaurant, so visit one of the local wineries beforehand and take your wines to the restaurant

“Wonderful from start to finish”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

First visit (we had to find a replacement for an old favorite this year) but definitely not our last. Wonderful experience from the minute we arrived. We were seated at a table on the inside porch with a nice view of the beach/ocean. They promptly put our BYOB in a ice bucket (it was a great reason to bring a special bottle). We had the local oysters & crudo to start, followed by the scallops and halibut. We even managed to find room for the lemon "bar" and chocolate panna cotta. The food and service were both outstanding. We will be back!

“Memorable Dinner”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

This topped off our 4th of July weekend in Cape May! My husband had the 4 course special and every bite was delicious. The early season corn soup, scallops, steak and oozing chocolate dessert was memorable and wonderful. I had the tuna - thank goodness it was not seasoned with pepper but perfectly seasoned, the coconut rice cake was delicious and I enjoyed the entire dinner. Service was incredible, the piano piped in from the front lobby was entertaining. The ocean across the promenade was perfect.
