    My wife and I enjoyed another winning meal at 410 Bank. Rack of Lamb and Voodoo Shrimp were our selections. The lamb was fabulous and the shrimp had extraordinary depth of flavor. Our desserts were fantastic - Bread Pudding and Strawberry Chocolate Moose. Gina was our server - friendly and efficient Overall, it was a splendid way to our our 3-night stay from the excellent Mission Inn B&B.

    We had a change of plans on Saturday and decided to go out. After discussing a good restaurant option nearby in Avalon, my wife and I looked at each other and came to the same conclusion that we would much rather go back to 410 Bank St even though we had been there 2 weeks ago. It gave us an opportunity to explore the menu some, save for the mandatory Mako medallions as she had the Blackened Prime Rib and I had the Voodoo Shrimp. The food was outstanding again as always and our server Jurga helped make the night another special one. Every visit, year after year with outstanding choices and great service make 410 OUR FAVORITE dining destination in South Jersey.

    The food is prepared and seasoned to give an opportunity to let it all shine through. The care in selecting the food and in the preparation shines through. Their key lime pie is one, if not the, best. We stop by to get it for take out! (the bread pudding was amazing too!)

    If the service was more attentive 410 would definitely be a four star. Food was excellent . . . Creative, plate presentation and overall quality from the scallop and asparagus appetizers to our tuna and swordfish entrees. Would definitely go back and hope to have a better waiter.

    In Cape May, we make 410 Bank one of our musts. It had been consistently good and never a disappointment, until this time. Mushrooms served with a pastry shell was good but pastry was tough to cut. Scallops app was delicious. Though entree specials ordered were good, the surf & turf was swimming in the mushrooms and sauce, most of which was left on the plate. salmon special- I missed part of the description that said it was served with room temp vegetables, so I thought they were just cold, so were mashed potatoes, both sauces it was served with. Pecan pie cheesecake in praline sauce was an excellent suggestion and was perfect. We will come back again because we have had many dinners without a complaint, and well, it's just our tradition.

    A wonderful BYO with a very inventive menu. 410 roots itself in Cajun or New Orleans cuisine. Many of the dishes are blackened. If have visited this restaraurant three times and have never been disappointed. This latest visit was the same. We started with a salad for my wife and I had the oyster special. The oysters were served with small pieces of fillet on small toasts with an amazing roumelade sauce. The salad was basic but good. We both had the blackened prime rib. Very good though not quite to the level of other meals I have had there. I have found that the unusual dishes are definitely the best.

    This is the third time my husband and I have been to this restaurant - we would love to be able to go more often but live in NYC. The food has been excellent all 3 occasions- it matches the restaurants we have been to in New Orleans. Service is wonderful with very knowledgable staff. The restaurant is in a charming house converted to a restaurant. Location is easy accessible with available parking (which is sometimes a problem in Cape May during the summer). All is all, a wonderful experience and we looking forward to going again on our next visit to Cape May.

    By Far - the worst restaurant in Cape May. Very short list of one brand of wine which was very of poor quality, food was extremely bland (No Taste), desserts lacked any taste and the whole menu was excessively overpriced for the value provide. The service was the only good part of the occasion. We will never go back!!

    This restaurant used to be our favorite in Cape May - for the ambiance, the quality/taste of food, byob, and reasonable pricing. After about 15 years we returned to Cape May and our once favorite restaurant. The food was good, the ambiance, byob, and service were all the same...but the pricing was OUTRAGEOUS. At least we thought so for what one gets. (eg $ 3.50 for a cup of tea?). We would recommend this restaurant for a special occasion - and expect to pay top dollar. If you don't mind, then this could be the place you should try...

    We really loved the food! It was excellent. We have been coming to Cape May for 30 years and never came to this restaurant. What a mistake. Friends recommended it to us. We noticed the early bird special and decided to try out the food that way. We will difinitely return and take advantage of the full menu selection.

    The food presented top notch some of the best presentation I have seen, this was followed by the great taste it did not disappoint. We had a really great dinner here and definitely would return and recommend this restaurant to everyone. The other unique aspect of this restaurant was a BYOB we thought that very unusually and they did feature local wines which we sampled a bottle.

    This is our favorite restaurant in Cape May. The food is excellent. You can't go wrong with any of your selections. Get there before 6 pm because they will run out of their "specials" which are very good. I had the scallops with lobster & my husband had the lamb which was delicious!

    This is a fine establishment with great food. However, the noise level in the main dining room, when full, is deafening...to the point that conversation with my girlfriend was absolutely impossible. The management response, when finally asked about the unbearable problem: "yes, it can get rambunctious here when we are busy, but you learn to live with it."

    We ate there on Saturday night, after making reservations. Not much of a wait. Overall restaurant is very cramped, loud, and not aesthetically appealing. We were very disappointed after reading all the favorable reviews. Don't know where they were coming from. Maybe relatives! Was bumped numerous times during dinner by waiter as the space is very confined. Ordered scallop app ($15) which looked like 3 regular ones cut in half, that equals 6 on the plate. Salad was poorly presented and bland with nothing special. Lobster bisque was a treasury hunt to actually find any meat. For the ambience, quality, and service, much better to go to either Peter Shields, Washington Inn, or Union Park.

    We stopped into 410 Bank on Friday as we found an opening on the reservations and my wife and I had yet to visit this summer and did not want to risk a 22 year run at our favorite Cape May restaurant. We were seated on schedule and had Jurda as our server. She was very sweet and knew the menu and specials inside and out. I had the Mako Medallions and the Seafood Gumbo File which are my favorites and both were perfect. My wife had the Tuna Ceviche which was great but could have used a little more tuna and then the blackened Halibut which came out perfect. For dessert we split the signature New Orleans Bread Pudding and then needed a nice long walk. 410 has never disappointed us and remains our favorite in Cape May and the Jersey Shore.
