    Tisha's is our favorite place to dine in Cape May. The food is outstanding and the ocean front location can't be beat! Their new little cafe has great salads and sandwiches right on the Promenade in Cape May. Great for lunch on the beach.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 10/4/2008
    This was our 3rd visit to the restaurant and not the best. Waited 25 minutes on a windy pier to be seated, no apology for the wait, no crab cakes (which are the best), no veal, no oysters. We had to ask to have our candle lit. The risotto was too salty - could not be eaten. My husband loves this restaurant and the calamari appetizer was over the top. You cannot beat the view of the ocean and the moon - very romantic. Our view - everyone has a bad day so yes we will go back next year. :-)

  • This is definitely not a restaurant
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 10/2/2008
    This is definitely not a restaurant for a large group. Three couples max. The chairs are difficult to manuever in the tight quarters. Because of the small size of the dining room, the tables are close together back to back but not from side to side. On this visit for dessert we had the creme brule' which was served in a nice size dish but it was not filled with the cream. Three spoonfuls and it was done! The dinners are a nice portion and served hot. We dine here frequently and find the food consistent. We live in Cape May full time and this is the best dining in Cape May at this time for both dollar value and quality of food. I thank the people who dine here for not wearing sneakers and treating it as a fine dining experience.

    The food is consistently flavorful and well presented from the first course appetizer to dessert. Our most recent server was a bit distracted which is unusual, since in the past the servers have been very efficient and attentive. Their flourless chocolate cake is the best I have ever experienced! Tish's is always at the top of our Cape May restaurant list!

    Tisha's is one of our favorite restaurants not only for the food but the view. It's like sitting on the beach but not getting sandy and having great food to accompany the view. It was actually a rainy evening but the windows were still open slightly and we could hear the ocean and smell the fresh air. It is a byob. Don't miss the risotto.

    My husband and I have been there twice. The food and service are excellent. The only problem we have had is, being that it is right on the beach and it is open air, it can be very, very windy. It all depends where you sit - so be careful. And make sure you make reservations or you will be in for a long wait.

    I believe that I made a reservation enough in advance but unfortunately was seated at a table for two right by the kitchen and when asked if our table could be changed the hostess replied it was the only table that she currently had. NOT TRUE. That was our only disappointment. We were definitely seated at the worst table in the house.

    I will not be returning to Tisha's. Our party walked out of the restaurant within in ten minutes of being seated. The restaurant had no air conditioning on when it was eighty degrees outside. There were customers fanning themselves with the menus. After speaking with other locals, I learned they have experienced the same problem in the restaurant. It was beyond hot in the room and all of the tables are on top of one another. In addition, when we asked if they could turn the air on they were extremely RUDE. Another local couple said that they would not be returning to the restaurant because the staff is extremely snobby.

    Arrived on time for 8pm resi, had to wait about 10 minutes for a table to be prepared. No worries. We had requested a table on the porch and got it, which was great. Server was very energetic and attentive. Pleasure having her wait on us. For starters, had the Cajun Panko Fried Oysters and Shrimp Bruschetta. Both were delicious. I would definitely recommend. Dinner, we ordered the Seafood Risotto and the Thai Salmon with Shrimp. Good sized portions. Plenty of food. Perfectly prepared. Dessert, Creme Brulee Cheesecake. Interesting preparation, but amazingly pulled off. All and all a great meal, and location. Nice little BYOB gem in the middle of Cape May! Check it out!

    We went to celebrate a special - birthday dinner - as Tisha's is a bit on the expensive side for just a casual meal. It is a beautiful restaurant with wonderful food. The problem was the service. Our waitress was very nice and very friendly, but everything was awfully slow. We waited about 20 minutes just to have our order taken, about 30 minutes for our appetizers, another 20-30 minutes for the salad course and after finishing the sald course 30-40 minutes for our entrees. We were there for approximately 3 hours - and not because we were lingering over the meal. By the time the food came, it almost didn't matter what was put in front of us because we bolted it down.

The waitress opened our wine and took our orders, I requested ice for the wine. We waited 40 minutes and did not get ice, bread nor our salad. People who arrived after us finished their appetizers. Our waitress was too busy socializing as was the hostess. We walked out when we couldn't get anyone's attention.

    overall we liked it. however, there were problems. 1) part of their outdoor dining was public boardwalk and LOTS of people were smoking. smoke blew into the restaurant too. bad for dining. especially since the restaurant advertises as "absolutely no smoking." 2) waitstaff was young kids with seemingly no interest in being good waiters. 3) portions were good but very small. 4) only 1 vegetarian option. too bad - could easily be much better.
