  • We had to wait 15 minutes
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 7/23/2008
    We had to wait 15 minutes before being seated, despite the fact that we had made reservations one week ahead. In addition, I asked for a window seat and we were seated in a dark corner of the resturant near the front entrance In addition, I had to ask for some tea lights so that I could read the menu. I was wedged into the corner and the waitress had to hand me my food because there was not enough room to serve me properly. At $29 dollars a plate, table serving was less than desirable. was fair to poor. Salad porition very small. I do not appreciate asking for a nice seat a week ahead of time and being stuck near the entrance in a dark corner. Would not come back!

    My husband and I dine at Tisha's every time we vacation in Cape May and have recommended it to family and friends going to Cape May for the first time and new acquaintances we've met at the Bed and Breakfast inns we frequent. Feedback has always, always been positive and I know there have been many return visits. The special attention taken in the preparation and presentation of the food is extraordinary, and the service and atmosphere is wonderful, yet very unpretentious. We look forward to our next meal at Tisha's!

    Great experience - Chef prepared new entree without garlic when my husband's first entree came laced with it (it wasn't listed as an ingredient and he can't eat it) - they were very accomodating about it. We've eaten here several times and always had terrific meals.

    Phenomenal as always. It’s a restaurant that we travel to at least once a year from more than 170 miles away. The seafood, the view, we’ve even watched a wedding or two outside on the beach. Tied in my mind for the best food in Cape May.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 7/12/2008
    It was a little too cold outside for outdoor dining on this evening however the hostess kindly invited restaurant-goers inside to warmer environments if they wished to move. It may have been a bit of an off night weatherwise, but we felt as if the restaurant needed outdoor heaters or to offer customers blankets, as is a common feature at some beachfront restaurants on the West Coast. We will ask to be seated inside should we choose to patronize Tisha's again this Summer.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 7/6/2008
    We have dined at Tisha's many times - usually we are very happy with the meal. However we usually find that the service is not up to the standards of the food. Service was very slow and there was a long delay between courses especially the wait for entrees. We spent almost three hours at the restaurant. Typically we could excuse the wait due to a crowded restaurant but we had a late reservation and by the time we left there was only one other table in the restaurant. Our food was good to very good, however, the filet mignon special was suprisingly tough for the beef cut. For dessert our table elected to have the chocolate fondue which we have had many times before. This time, however, the chocolate was barely warm.

    Best food we had in Cape May. Prices similar to other upscale restaurants there (entrees in the $25-35 range) but the food quality was outstanding. Portions were reasonable--filling but not too heavy. Our server was pleasant and attentive without being annoying. This, along with Black Duck, will be on the list when we return to Cape May.

One of the few restaurants we have dined at that always cooks my steak just right. We tell everyone that is visiting Cape May....that this is one restaurant that is an absolute must. Keep up the great work.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP
    Dined on 7/1/2008
    Tisha's had all the possibility of being a fantastic restaurant...location, view, menu. The weakness and eventual downfall was the inattentive services of very underqualified personnel. Realizing the seasonal nature of the area this accounts for the lack of training, but when you classify a restaurant as fine dining it should include fine service. The owners and chef may be unaware of the overall impression left by the servers but their impact is very visible. We have eaten there before, enjoy the food and atmosphere but would recommend that the servers train more, congregate less around the check-in desk and focus on making Tisha's the memorable location it can be. Lesson # 1 - Look your customers in the eye when speaking.

My wife's favorite in Cape May. She especially likes the fact that salad is included with the price of the meal. In most other Cape May fine dining spots salad is ala carte. One of only two restaurants with an ocean view.

    This intimate oceanfront BYOB is our very FAVORITE restaurant in all of Cape May and never fails to not dissappoint! Service is provided year to year by consistent returning servers who know their menu & provide attentive while non-intrusive service. Menu includes both recurring favorites as well as nightly creative specials. Tisha's does both fresh local seafood and meat choices equally well. We always make it a point to dine at Tisha's at least once during every stay in Cape May. Cape May is a superior town for foodies and gourmets and Tisha's holds up to the best this town offers. Do be sure to request an outside table for an extra special experience and watch the porpoises play off the beach.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 6/21/2008
    I requested an indoor table with a view of the beach, we got a table that was crammed in the corner, the outside, covered with thick plastic. The beach view was covered by the canvas and the wind was coming through the bottom of the canvas making it quite uncomfortable. After about an hour, the wind died down and it was a little better. The restaurant is a BYOB. The waitress opened up our wine, but informed us that they had run out of wine glasses, so we had to wait about 20 minutes for wine glasses. When we finally got the wine glasses, they were HOT!! The service was friendly, but very, very slow!!! The food was so,so!! I would not recommend Tisha's to anyone who is expecting a positive experience. Lydia Krzeminski
