“Perfect combination: food, view, drinks”
Reviewed August 13, 2009

We had dinner here with two other couples and had so much fun. Since there were six of us, we ordered just about every tapas item they had on the menu. My favorite had to be the tuna, even though it's hard to choose one. I enjoy eating and trying new places, and this is certainly one place I would come back to. Amazing drinks too - fun martini menu.

“What a disaster!! Avoid like the plague...”
Reviewed July 31, 2009

We're just back from a family vacation in CM. We enjoyed ourselves immensely and our only regret was eating dinner at Martini Beach. The food was terrible. The calamari was tough and lacked any taste, the risotto was also without substance and was covered in mushrooms which looked like carcass. The lobster bisque was bland and watery and the steaks could not justify their price. We had to beg for a basket of bread and they had to redo my one daughters pasta with butter..(how can u screw up plain pasta..believe me they did, by dousing it in pepper).
Our party of 8 was seated immediately adjacent to a piano player which we had to shout over to have any conversation. The night we went the place was blantantly understaffed as the service was horrendous. We waited an eternity for our bottles of wine to be brought to the table and our dinners came out ice cold. The only reason we didn't overtly lodge a complaint with management was that we were there for a family birthday and didn't want to have the memory of such a scene. We were embarassed enough. We paid our $350.00 bill (no dessert, mind you) and left....never to return again.

“Excellent Martinis, fun night out!”
Reviewed May 2, 2009

It's a great location and the food is very good. Resist the temptation to over order. It is fun to share tapas, just pace yourself. One minor food issue was quickly corrected by
the helpful staff. The martini selection is large and interesting, and the setting was perfect! We had a group of 10 celebrating 2 birthdays and it was a fun night out!

“Great Experience”
Reviewed August 2, 2008

We just spent a few days in Cape May. There are many resturants to choose from and I'm glad we chose Martini Beach. The setting was great. We ate on the porch facing the Ocean. The Staff was very friendly and attentive. Our Waiter Anthony gave us great pointers on the Menu. The Pork "steak" was over the top tender and juicy. The New York Strip was one of the tastiest I think I have ever had. Both by the way were cooked perfectly to our request. I would recommend this place to friends and family and go back next time we are in town.
