Recently had dinner here. I didn't realize it was a BYOB until I called for a reservation - the person taking the res helpfully let me know that we could bring our own bottle or they sell full bottles only from Cape May Winery (which has decent wines). Good to know that ahead of time as I would have been disappointed if we hadn't been able to have a nice wine with such a wonderful meal.

It's a beautiful restaurant - we sat in the side porch with a view of the ocean. There was also someone playing the piano that night which added to the ambiance. Parking was easy as it was off season.

We both had the seasonal salad to start, then the salmon and the halibut entrees. Both were absolutely fantastic The gnocchi that came with mine was by far the best gnocchi I have ever had, anywhere. Portion sizes were perfect - enough to be satisfying, but leaving a little room for dessert.

The food here is always incredible. I love the jumbo lump crab salad. I crave it weekly. The atmosphere is quaint and good for a romantic dinner. One of the best restaurants here in town.

We had much to celebrate and we chose a perfect place to do it. Our server, Peter, was personable, attentive and very knowledgable. We decided on the tasting menu and it was amazing. Each course was presented beautifully, with an array of colors, that added to the overall dining experience. Peter was kind enough to introduce us to the Sous Chef, Nick, who congratulated us on our celebration. Nick should be commended for his creative arrangement of tastes and textures that made each dish more delicious than the next. PSI is a must, we will be back.

Jumbo Lump Crab Salad! Absolutely delicious with great flavor. I had the halibut and my wife had the chicken. Both seasoned to perfection.

We finally found our 'foodie' experience in Cape May and also found more due to the staff. The atmosphere is of formal fine dining with exquisite food and professional service. The extra was when we needed assistance calling for a less formal interaction; my back seized. The staff morphed for the situation into really kind, reassuring, nice, personable, considerate folk who ensured our experience was Grand despite my back. Great, no, make that superb, food and people, Wonderful experience. Thanks! :)
