The service was great. The food was delicious. I ordered the steak and my husband the salmon; both were delicious. Our 4 year old son had the kobe burger and I wish I had ordered it!!

We had high hopes for the scallops and also the Kobe burger. Sadly the scallops with Israeli couscous and asparagus was bland and flavorless. The frites served with the burger were plastic like shoe string potatoe not even as good as a vending snack. We replaced them with the whipped potatoes which were obviously dehydrated potatoe flakes and also tasteless. After bringing this to the attention of the server they reluctantly removed the potatoes from the bill. Overall a very unsatisfactory meal.

We have been visiting Cape May for 15 years now and only just discovered Union Park this year! The decor is lovely and the waitstaff excellent. I enjoyed my dinner and the edamame, a strange appetizer for this place, was delicious but my husband did not enjoy his dinner at all. His salad was bland and his short ribs were tasteless.

Don't buy the hype. This place was just okay and at these prices, I want to be impressed; greatly impressed. The Chef has articles about himself all over the lobby and has obviously worked hard at crafting his ego. Now if he would only work as hard on the food. Everything from the appetizers to the entrees were just average; not gourmet quality. Decor and atmosphere were kind of weak too. We were seated in a dingy corner with a leaky air conditioner overhead. The wait staff was mediocre at best. For this money, try The Washington Inn or even Martini Beach. This is a Cape May myth.
