    It was difficult to choose only 3 places to have dinner during our brief stay in the area, from the many great dining establishments in Cape May. The previous evening's experience was a disappointment so we had high hopes for Tisha's. I listened to the raves about the Seafood Risotto and my husband had the filet. Both were absolutely delicious and we were very happy. A previous reviewer scoffed at the 2 pieces of bread put on the table but they were, in fact, homemade biscuits and were phenomenal. They were promptly refreshed upon request. All in all a great experience.

    Tisha's is always fantastic! It exceeds my expectations on food taste and quality. I can count on an excellent meal every time I dine at Tisha's. I had lobster bisque, cajun fried oysters, scallops risotto, and flourless chocolate cake. I eat oysters because of the cajun fried oysters at Tisha's and I have never found a flourless cake this good! I wish I could get the recipe. My husband had shrimp bruschetta, cajun fried oysters, seafood risotto, key lime pie and capuccino. His meal was wonderful also. We can't say enough about Tisha's! The only negative I would give and it has nothing to do with the food was the Barbra Streisand music has to go. One or two songs would be fine, but all night long was toooooo much!

    Tishas is always one of our choices each time we visit Cape May. Never disappoints in all categories, service and food especially. Have eaten here several times for lunch and dinner and always is consistent in their delivery. We try a new restaurant each time we are in Cape May but Tishas is always number one on our list when we stay 3 or more nights.

    Not our first time at Tisha's, and surely not our last. Great food and service. The appetizer of mussels with Thai curry sauce is outstanding...a friend tried to buy a quart of the curry sauce on a previous visit! This time we had the lobster ravioli and the salmon, but we've never been disappointed by any of the selections. Now that the tourist season is over the locals are getting a better chance at seating, but that just shows how good the restaurant is.

    The food here is very good even though it is located on the busy/touristy mall. Had heard good things about, but was suspect due to location and the amount of tourists in the area. I probably had the best pork chop, double cut with broccoli rabe and peppers on top. The other meal at my table was the Salmon and shrimp. Although not very spicy, it had great flavor. Both were perfectly cooked.

    We make Tisha's our first stop every trip to Cape May. Aside from the overly cold air conditioning system, this visit was outstanding as usual. The lobster risotto was the best ever and the steak au poivre was perfect. My wife's halibut was exceptional. The green beans were a little under done but otherwise, normal Tisha's excellence.

    Tishas is in my opinion the best restaurant in cape may. An upscale restaurant that has generous portions, unlike other cape may upscale restaurants. My wife and I keep coming back to tishas whenever visiting cape may. Service is always outstanding. Our server Brooke was excellent.

    We had dinner here on the first night of our semi annual post Labor Day visit to Cape May. As always the food and service were excellent. Good rolls to start, I had the Gnocchi, which was excellent.The strawberry short cake for dessert was excellent. As a vegetarian I always appreciate having a vegetarian option on the menu! My DH had a very good pasta and seafood dish. My only issue is the complimentary salad is nothing special but excellent meal overall. Tisha's will continue to be our first night Cape May restaurant.

    Very leisurely dining experience. They do not rush you, which is rare today, as many restaurants are eager to turn your table over for an additional seating. Unfortuanely, we had only allotted 2 hrs 15 minutes to eat our diner, before another engagement. So we were not able to fit in the dessert course in that amount of time. In fact, we regret that we were able to enjoy only the appetizer, salad and entree and had to ask for the check. Next time we will make sure to allot 3 hours so we do not miss the opportunity for one more delicious course!

    We had been really disappointed this Summer with the quality if the food, Tisha's changed all that. My Halibut special was the best fish I've had all season, my wife's seafood Pescatore (also a special) was awesome spicy in red sauce - our whole meal and experience was awesome. BYOB or bottle of wine from Cape a May vineyard (if you need that). Seating in rear is nice & romantic a little quieter that out front dining. We also highly recommend 5West, their casual restaurant/bar in the Villas on Bayshore - great BBQ shrimp pizza!

    Well we went for lunch, dinner might be better. First our server was unpleasant. We ordered mussels, fried oysters, and lobster Mac and cheese. The mussels weren't really opened and when we tried to extract the inside 50% or them just tore apart. Also, the bread with the mussels was a Kaiser roll. The fried oysters were gross, they used cheap breadcrumbs like you would find on frozen mozzarella sticks and they just didn't taste fresh. And the lobster Mac n' cheese was decent, but there was about 2 tablespoons of minced lobster sprinkled on top(I couldn't even taste it).

    Asked for back patio. Seated in back dining room next to rest rooms which was distracting. $5 extra for Caesar not worth it. Lobster risotto was superb. Salmon with Thai Ginger was excellent. Chicken Pasquale was dry and uninspired. Wait staff was adequate but aloof. Overall, the experience did not live up to earlier reviews.

    The wine list is limited to a Cape May vintner and is available by the bottle with take home what you didn't drink HOWEVER, our Cabernet Sauvignon was a quite satisfactory complement to our meal. Particularly OUTSTANDING was the Scallops Risotto--available in two sizes: appetizer and dinner. One of us chose the dinner size ($32 at the time). The portion was ample (risotto unfinished; scallops totally consumed.) Service was superb. Always the best indicator is, 'Would you go back?' Yep--particularly for a special occasion.

    Tisha's is a wonderful little byob dining establishment on the Washington Street Mall. My husband and I had a wonderful meal there recently with the exception of the mussels appetizer. The dish was served with only 14 mussels and they were puny. The white sauce was delicious so we put our rolls to good use and sucked up every last bit of sauce. The seafood risotto was amazing as usual. The risotto was flavorful and the scallops and shrimp tasted buttery and were cooked perfectly. Our entrees included a house salad. I'd recommend Tisha's to couples or families with older children.
