We were here the weekend after Labor Day and it was recommended by the owner of John Wesley Inn. It was one of the best meals of the year! I had the salmon which was a large piece, perfectly cooked. My husband had the filet which was butter knife perfect. We had the Turdo wine which was fine and reasonably priced. All around, an excellent experience in fine dining at Cape May!

Union Park definately is a very pretty restauant,particularily the Library room. The service while good could be a little more polished. There was a man serving some dishes(posibly the owner??) that was dressed like he was a patron there for dinner, The food is very good, rather limited menu, but everything we ordered was very good. Unfortuanately there was a screaming child that had to be taken outside a couple of times right next to us, I do not understand why parents would take a child out at that hour of the evening when there are so many family orientated noisy, casual restauants that would be better suited for them.

Fantastic dining experience. Food was fabulous...we had seafood starter and short rib and strip steak for main which was cooked perfectly. Atmosphere on porch or inside was very nice and attentive service. One of the best meals. On the pricey side buy byob made it reasonable and worth it

Returned to this restaurant again and it was just as good as I remembered. Good american food, great service. Pricey, but most of the fine dining restaurants in Cape May are comparable price wise. I got what I paid for.

I typically lower my food expectations when eating at the Jersey Shore, but Union Park surprised me. My wife and I have eaten there a couple of times now, and the food is consistently excellent. This past weekend, my wife and I ordered the lobster tail, and I have to say that it was absolutely THE BEST lobster tail I've ever had. Excellent preparation, very tasty and the most tender lobster I've had. This is a BYOB so make sure you bring a great bottle of wine to go with the excellent food.
