About 410 Bank Street

A winding slate path through overhanging vines and tropical foliage leads to the historic 1840 Carriage house. Slowly spinning ceiling fans stir the aromas of French-New Orleans accented cooking and trawler-to-table seafood and steaks grilling over mesquite. Envision yourself in New Orleans or Key West. In the canopied garden, or on the candlelit veranda, dine on the exotic cuisine of Chef Chet Saign, whose creations include local-caught tuna, swordfish and mahi-mahi in fabulous sauces, elaborate entrees of local shellfish & lobster, and the justly famous smoked, grilled and blackened steaks and prime rib. Beyond the menu, a dozen or more specials are offered nightly. The helpful staff makes you feel like you are dining on a private yacht.

Just a lovely dinner all themed creole-Cajun with distinctive unique tastes all prepared with care and presentation. Very attentive service and a very pleasant dining experience.....a nice special occasion dinner...pricey but well worth it. Nice that you can bring your own wine as well.

Despite asking to be seated in the front of the restaurant my wife and I were seated in the main area. Food was ok. Portions were generous. The noise level was excruciating. Just shy of making your ears bleed! Having dined here a number of times over the years we will never return.

Overall I would say this was a very average dining experience. We were greeted by an apathetic host and seated in the back dining space which was too hot and without either the ambiance or the music heard in the front dining room. When asked to be seated in the front dining space the host barely acknowledged but did show us to another table promptly.
The waiter was bored, uneducated on the menu and unable to answer simple questions.
The food was good but not amazing. The salmon was served with partially cold sides and the key lime pie was 50% frozen.
Did not meet my expectations.

Was there end of September for restaurant week for the prix fixe menu for a special night out on vacation. Came highly recommended. Had the swordfish medallions, mako shark creole, and key lime pie and my friend had the gumbo. Everything was absolutely amazing and the scattered seatings made sure everything was made fresh. Only recommendation would be to have a pitcher of water on the table for those, like me, who have trouble with spice.

“We are extremely sorry... we are running a little behind, and are doing our best to get your table ready. There are some chairs in the garden area that will help with your wait”. Is what I would have expected to hear when I arrive for a reservation and my table is not ready. It’s not a huge disaster when a popular restaurant miscalculates the turnover speed.

HOWEVER, after giving my name, what I heard instead was “wait outside and we will get you when we are ready”. I then asked how long the wait would be. I was told “your table has just paid, and I can’t push them any faster”. I thought this was a strange reply considering my question was pretty normal. She was irritated and very brusque. She looked at me like I was crazy for politely asking how long the wait was (when I had a reservation). Bizarre to say the least, and not our normal experience at 410 Bank Street.

We stepped outside into the humid 85 degree weather. There was one chair.

It became very apparent that “our” table was not really our table at all. We watched several parties of 4 leave (we were a 3).

We then realized that all the other people waiting outside actually had reservations too. They weren’t walk in diners.

After a half hour we were seated. No apology for the delay from our reservation time.

The room was very loud. Louder than normal.

Our waitress was excellent, as are all the waitstaff at this restaurant. The meal was inspired and flavorful as always.

The food and especially the sauces are so well created, that this is our go to restaurant many times a summer.

We will absolutely go back and do recommend 410 Bank Street, but our experience did make a slight blot on the otherwise impeccable track record we previously encountered over the years.

Hopefully the hostess will enjoy her time off during the “off season”, and come back happier. They close in two weeks for the season.

410 is overhyped in my opinion, especially compared to the bountiful amount of wonderful restaurants in Cape May. The food is average for the hype it's given by their descriptions. The space is confining, which some may call cozy, but if you don't mind eating at a checkerboard sized table, you'll be okay. Seriously, our dinner plates hung over the edge of the table and we had to set our wine on the floor. I wouldn't mind that nearly as much if this wasn't featured as fine-dining.

From start to finish, this was a delightful dinner. Every bite was a dance in my mouth. Party of 4. Blackened scallops were amazing. Voodoo shrimp was hot but did not mask the other flavors. Special grill with antelope, and other meats was loved by my dining partner. Yummy gumbo. Tropical flavors in mahi. All served to please the eye as well as the palate.

410 Bank St has become our go to restaurant in Cape May. The Cajun/creole cuisine is among the best we have every had. The nightly specials highlight 410's inventive menu, the seafood is always fresh and the service is outstanding. Thanks to host David for always reserving our favorite table and to our waiter Shane for the outstanding service. Never a disappointment at 410!

Always a great meal at 410 Bank. If you haven't been here in the off season you should try it. It is much more relaxing and quiet, totally different from the busy summer season. Portion sizes are better for the price than at some of the other area restaurants.

Salad tasted like ingredients were just plucked from the garden. The mushroom soup was delicious with a smoked scallop atop the dish- just wish it was served hot and not lukewarm. Blackened swordfish over a crawfish etoufee was fabulous. The roast of the day was served with a vintage Pinot Noir sauce that drowned the dish and everything in it. All very sweet. Ate 1/4 of it and took the rest home - much better the next day. We bought a Cape May wine and had to keep asking our server to refill our glasses. She was pleasant, but not too into making our first-time visit special. However everyone else was exceptional.
