    When in Cape May you should always try to enjoy a meal at Tisha's. We did twice this visit. On the first night we decided to order 6 appetizers in 3 courses. First up were Curried Mussels and Little Necks in a White Wine garlic sauce. Both great. Up next was the Curry Shrimp which was great and the Fried Oysters which were good but not great. For the Third course we had Scallops Risotto (always fantastic) and the Fried Calamari which is also very good. We finished with the Apple Pie. Our server was great and an enjoyable time was had, BYOB so enjoy with a favorite wine or two.

    Been come to Cape May for years and Tisha ' s is always on our stops of fantastic restaurants in the area. Food is always good and the wait staff is always so nice. Had the shrimp and polenta app. , it was a homerun in my book. Will be back next time down as well.

    Second trip to Cape May and Tishas was a 'must visit'. The food and service are great. It's reliably good and always a guaranteed great evening. The servers are friendly and knowledgeable without being overly familiar. One of my favorite places to eat.

    This was our second visit to Tisha's accompanied by our cousins, their first visit. We all left very pleased by the service, and more then satisfied by the food. Each dish showed signs, and tastes of fresh ingredients, and properly prepared. My wife and I will be returning to Wildwood for the Labor Day Weekend, and we will no doubt return, this time with friends of ours.

    We go to Cape May every year and i enjoy Tishas food more than any other place there...and there are tons of great places! The Thai chili sauce on my mussels app was so good I finished it off like soup because I didn't want to fill up on bread to sop it up. Then my seafood risotto main course was fantastically delicious. My husbands choice of lobster risotto app and Alaskan halibut were wonderful too. Don't miss this place, but remember to reserve and it's BYOB. Service was perfect and not rushed.

    We have eaten here many times and, as expected, our meal was outstanding. It is a BYOB although they do sell local Cape May Wine. We have eaten in the dining room on occasion and A/C has been cold. We ate on the back porch for the first time and it was lovely - perfect temperature and atmosphere.

    The food was excellent. We had an 8:30 reservation for two and arrived at 8:25. We checked at 8:45 and the table we eventually sat at was empty. We went in again (sitting on a bench outside - no place to sit inside) at 9:00 pm and watched as the hostess set the table. She was rude, didn't apologize for our wait and never again checked in on us or thank us for our patronage. The high school-age waitress and bus boy were fine but she was limited in the menu advice she could offer. No one on the staff smiled. A party of 6 next to us also waited 30 min to be seated. The one crab cake I received for ~$30 was excellent; I wish there was a 2nd. The salad was fresh and nicely dressed; 1small warm roll per person along with peppered oil provided.

    Tisha's is one of the best restaurants in Cape May. Our party of four all raved about their meal. The pan seared scallops in the mushroom risotto was excellent. Plenty of choices for varied food tastes. Brought our own wine which was a nice plus. Highly recommend Tisha's when you visit Cape May.

    We've been to cape may every summer for 6 years now and this is one of our favorite restaurants. Great service, delicious good and nice ambiance all in one. Seems like a quiet adult place but we have a 12 and an 8 year old who always feel welcome and love the pasta choices for kids. We highly recommend this Tisha's.

    Have been coming to Cape May area for many years and most years go to Tishas for dinner and have always had a good experience. Preferred the old location with a view . However this year I must say although the service was great and food tasty the portions have gotten quite a bit smaller and the prices higher. We used to love coming here based on the fact that it is BYOB and felt good value for the money. We come with usually a party of 5-6. A bit disappointed this year.

We recommend the Steak Au Poivre, The Peppered Shrimp and Crab Cake, and the Gnocci! Enjoy!!!

    This restaurant came highly recommended by both our concierge and open table. The food was just OK. Nothing spectacular. The worst part of the entire meal was the salad. It had been prepared ahead and or left under the heat lamp. It was warm, wet and limp. Not at all impressed.

    We always have dinner at Tisha's one night during our annual trip to Cape May, and the food never disappoints. Our favorites: the Lobster Risotto (best ever!) and the Thai Salmon (my husband never orders anything else). Also, if they have the halibut with the mashed potatoes and white wine beurre blanc sauce, get it. So light & delicious. On this trip, however, we did notice that the service is beginning to slip. It is certainly not as good as it used to be. Still, Tisha's is a neighborhood gem & it's nice that it is on the mall.

    Great food but not enough variety of dishes on dinner menu. Granted they do really good risotto (scallop risotto is absolutely delicious), but my husband and I are perplexed as to why there are so many risotto dishes. And many dishes with the same sauce (red curry sauce). Service is excellent and overall a great experience.

    Even though Tisha's has been in Cape May for a long time, it's a new discovery for us. We ate there with family back in June and returned with another couple the other night. I ordered the fried oysters (an appetizer on the menu, but they'll serve as an entree upon request). They were crunchy on the outside and juicy on the inside--in other words--perfect! Our friends both ordered the salmon which comes glazed with a Thai sauce and my husband ordered the scallops. All were expertly prepared and delicious, as evidenced by all the empty plates when the server came to clear. Our friendly server, Brooke, is also the pastry chef and she didn't disappoint in either capacity. We highly recommend the bread pudding and the key lime pie.

    The service was good but could have been better. We were left for periods of time without anyone attending my party. When our waitress did arrive she was very accommodating. The prices for both appetizers and entrees were way to high for the portions you received. The food was superbly presented and was delicious but overpriced in my estimation. Two months ago I ordered the same special entree for one price and ordered the same entree this trip for a higher price. Not good for business. I will not be going back.
