  • "Over priced for what is served. Quality is questionable. Service was horrible. Paid for a full portion, ate half, asked to take it to go and they threw it away. Wouldn't do anything about the bill. Food was very average. Much better resturaurants in the area."

  • "I was so looking forward to trying this place. We have summer home nearby. Having read previous reviews I expect I was so looking forward to trying this place. We recently purchased a summer home nearby. I was warned about the bland decor by previous reviewers. Really ,put some pictures on the walls! I did expect a great meal but my fish was raw in the middle and this was not tuna. They did apologize and offered to replace the meal but for me dinner was done. Kinda turned my stomach. Husbands filet mignon was good, so I ate some of his. He is so good to me. Sorry but not likely I will return. There are many other choices. Y"

  • "New menu is missing one of their best dishes, Seafood Risotto! Very disappointing. The dish I selected was just ok (sausage pasta). My husbands was good (penne gorgonzola)."

  • "Food was good, services was fair. Price was Atlantic City. Stingy with bread and water.... Like a prison"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I hear a lot about Marie Nichole's. Maybe it was an off night. We had the lobster Qeusadilla. Th elobster was overcooked and dry. The Eggplant Napoleon was quite good. The Gorgonzola pasta was overpowering with the cheese. It became too much after a few bites. The dessert sounded ordinary so we skipped it."

  • "we had 9 people at Marie Nicoles....the soups were great. the special was tile fish which was good but a little dry. The $30 menu was a bit restrictive with choices. Service was great especially with a large group. small area for dining."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We have been enjoying Marie Nicole's for some years now. Most of the time, the food is good. Occasionally there is an entree that is not as great as others. The only complaint I really have is that they really need to update the interior. The window coverings are so outdated, I am thinking they are over 20 years old and the colors are all too dark."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Four of us arrived for an evening meal and were seated promptly at a nice table. Cocktails were outstanding and there were oysters, salads, steaks and some fish. Very enjoyable, we will definitely be back."

  • "When we entered the restaurant, the hostess was very gracious. I did not know I had to make a request for the outside dining & she found us a table outside. The waiter was very accomodating & the food was fabulous. I had 2 specials & the appetizer & dinner were superb. This is one of the best restaurants on the island. The cuisine is different & Excellent! A little high priced but you get what you pay for."

  • "Our dinner was very enjoyable. I took advantage of the restaurant week special. The dressing on the salad was delicious (and the size was quite large). I had the pesto pork loin chop - very good, and my husband had the seafood risotto which he would highly recommend. We sat on the patio to take advantage of the early summer night breeze. Will definitely be back"

  • "We were recommended to dine at Marie Nicole's. I was in Wildwood Crest for business and asked my FB sphere where I should eat. Knowing I am a foodie, several people guided me here. They did not disappoint. The cranberry rolls we homemade, my guest fot the chowder soup ( to die for) it was a combo of New England &. Manhattan with a smokey under tone. My entree was the largest veal Milanese I have ever seen. Presentation of the veal chop Milanese was garnished with an arugula salad with shaved parm, halved grape tomatoes. Our dessert was a Devine apple crisp with a vanilla caramel ice cream. My only negative in the lack of decor in the dinning room. Very dark for a beach environment "

  • "Marie Nicole's is one of the true fine dining restaurants on the Island. The staff is very professional and knows what they are doing. The menu has something for everyone, and the wait-staff knew what was in each and how they it was prepared. The wine list was varied in wine styles and pricing. Each of us truly enjoyed our meals. The only suggestion was the background music. I thought is was slightly louder than necessary and type of music was not consistent with the atmosphere."

  • "We have been to Marie Nicole's a number of times now and continue to be amazed by the quality and taste. The level of service, preparation and food is truly amazing. Highly recommend this as a gem in the wildwoods"

  • "I've been to Marie Nicole's many times and it has steadily gotten better. Not that it was bad to start with, but the quality of the food and the service have become more consistent. I no longer leave there feeling that it was an "off" night. The service is professional and outstanding. The menu has a varied selection of meat, fish and other (pasta, for example), so there's something for everybody, plus specials. We had the swordfish and strip steak, both excellent and cooked to our specifications. By the way, children might be better off here earlier in the evening. Not that they don't welcome children, but I think parents would breathe easier if they arrived earlier in the evening. You don't have to drive to Cape May for a great meal!"

  • "This restaurant was great as far as service and food. Our server was wonderful. Very attentive to our needs and the food was prepared perfectly. The music that was playing for me was too much. The 50's and 60's genre of music would have been better appreciated at a bar type restaurant. Since Marie Nicole's is a small restaurant I think it would be better with out the music, unless the music was dinner type music. But this was not."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "After waiting years to try Marie Nicole's I was disappointed. I had read rave reviews and walked away feeling let down. The service was a bit stiff and really has no right to be - it's a very basic dinning room. We were a party of 2. My peach salad was very good along with my 1/2 portion of gorgonzola pasta- both excellent and would order again. My son ordered the scallop appetizer for $12 and was shocked to be served 2 scallops! WOW that's a rip off. Here is the kicker... you can go to Windrift get scallops/lobster risotto for $18 app and it's AMAZING! 6 GIANT scallops... Sorry Marie Nicole's between the typical NY and South Phila loud Eagle fans and $$ food I don't think I'll be returning..It's a disappointment."

  • "Consistently excellent. I found this place six years ago tucked away in the south end of Wildwood Crest, next door to the Crest Tavern. I have been there several times and it has always been far superior, which is noteworthy considering the competition in the vicinity, particularly the gourmet attractions in Cape May City proper. Service was well above normal, even in the fringe season, with an adult waiter who paid attention to us. I had the veal chop and lamb pops as an appetizer. It was cooked perfectly, seasoned perfectly, and presented elegantly. My date loved the chicken. Noise level was low but the inside room is small, and outside dining doubles the space, both are great places to be on a cool summer night."

  • "The expanded bar is great, gives everyone a chance to have a pre-dinner cocktail. We dined outside, usually my husband won't eat outside, we both enjoyed it. The good was delicious. Can't wait till our next visit."

  • "Diane and I dined with two other couples, five of us enjoyed our meal Diane had the House Speciality, Veal Milanese and was very disappointed"
    Dined on 9/2/2013
  • "Service was attentive but a bit slow. Clams and oysters on the half shell were fresh and delicious. NY strip steak was ordered medium rare but was overcooked. Pork chop was also overcooked. Seafood risoto was fabulous. Overall the high prices require perfection and they missed the mark."
    Dined on 9/1/2013
  • "A fine restaurant. However, the chairs are uncomfortable (poor back support), and the television in the bar area is disconcerting and intrusive in this kind of establishment. Also, on this third visit our party encountered what we had twice before: the main dining room is so cold that a sweater is a necessity."

  • "We have been k Marie Nicole's several times and always enjoyed a fine meal. The newly expanded bar area is a gret place to have a drink before dinner. The outside eating area is a much better place to sit than inside. The inside is dark and confined"

  • "Fabulous meal; a little noisy, but good food close to home."
    Dined on 8/30/2013
  • "The meals were good but do not warrant the prices charged. For example, there is ample seafood in the seafood risotto but the shrimp and lobster were overcooked. This restaurant was the choice of our guest but this reservation was not eligible for dining points which was also disappointing."
    Dined on 8/25/2013
  • "Have dined there several times (4+) this summer with friends. Many good experiences. Especially when 8 of us shared appetizers and entrees. When the restaurant gets crowded service really slows. This visit dinners took about 1 and 1/2 hours to receive. Food was warm not hot. Overall generally very good but not always consistent."

  • "We have been to this upscale restauant several times while vacationing in Diamond Beach. The food is consistently very good. The ambience is romantic with low candle lighting. The staff is very attentive and obviously trained well prior to serving any customers. The bar is attractive and drinks were done well. Recommended for special occassions or a night out without the children."
    Dined on 8/19/2013
  • "Great atmosphere and food is out of this world. We went twice in the last month and both times the food and service were great. Love the consistency. The new bar area is a great place to enjoy a pre-dinner drink. Dining outside was very comfortable and quite intimate."
