    If you’re looking for a socially distanced dining experience don’t go to Ebbitt Room. Tables very tightly packed and food just mediocre. My scallops dish was good but sent back since one scallop completely raw. My MIL ordered duck special which was complete over cooked. When the manager recognized food was not able To be prepared she offered her a side dish to hold her over and then charged her for it. Very disappointed to have two out of four dinners not well prepared.

    We felt like we were in a fairy tale, dining on exquisite food in the setting of a charming front porch in romantic Victorian Cape May. The food was stellar, the service perfect. This meal created many wonderful memories for us all.

    Atmosphere, food and service were excellent. We celebrated my moms 90th birthday. We had drinks on the porch and when we were called to be seated out back I noticed a table set for 6 on the porch and I asked the hostess if we could be seated there. The hostess said no problem. It was perfect!

    We had dinner at the Ebbit room on Friday, July 10th at 7 pm. We were in traffic and concerned that we could be a few minutes late for our reservation. I called and was told that our reservation could not move to 7:30 pm and that if we were later than 10 minutes our reservation would be canceled. I understand that you want to fill tables but where was the customer service? The woman who I talked to acted like she was the customer. Very gruff and disappointing. Luckily we made it in time for our reservation only to be approached by a waiter who's mask was not covering his nose and talking loudly and in our face. We were uncomfortable, to say the least. For this reason, we canceled the reservation that we have for Monday, July 13th at 7 pm. Please be mindful of waiters wearing masks. On a good note, the food was delicious yet pricey for the experience. Thank you, Rachel Fedor

    Doing alfresco in their beautiful back garden was the perfect way to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary. I hope they keep outdoor dining as an option even after the ban on indoor dining is lifted.

    We ate dinner at the Ebbitt Room on Wed. and everything was delicious. We shared the calamari which is the best! It was so tender. It melted in your mouth. My husband had the tuna special and I had the tempura flounder. Both were excellent. We shared the banana cheesecake which also was delicious. It was wonderful eating at a restaurant.

    Ate here on July 8, 2020. Food was good and service was okay. Major complaint, though- for the second time in the past year, they snuck in an up charge on my bill for an entree. It was only $2 this time and about the same last summer. The server was also clearly annoyed when I pointed out that the price I was charged of $37 was higher than the $35 printed on the menus, announcing loudly for neighboring tables to hear that "your $2 has been credited back". Pretty insignificant if it happens once, but given this was the second time with a completely different menu at a touristy location where most people won't notice a few extra dollars on the bill, it seems like this is a systemic practice. Probably my last time here.

    First meal out after Covid restrictions opened up a little. Wonderful meal, delicious cocktails and the outdoor dining area is really nice. Blue fin tuna special and salmon were both cooked to our liking and apps of squash blossoms stuffed with ricotta were so good. Fantastic salad with burrata, tomatoes and fruit from beach plum farm was the highlight of the meal.

    Food looked better then tasted. Service was superb, masked - we were informed that we have 1 1/2 h to enjoy dinner due to covid regulations so we felt little rushed, overall it was good but for the price of $38 per entrée we expected more flavor. Wouldn't come back.
