Food and service were wonderful on this April Friday evening, but the obnoxious loudness from the bar made for a far less than “fine dining “ experience. The bar, unfortunately, is essentially in the dining room.

Great menu and ambiance. Excellent service. Located in the first floor of the historic Hotel Virginia which is part of an excellent group of properties and eateries in Cape May.

This is certainly high end dining. I wouldn’t take the whole family of young ones unless the kids enjoy this type of menu.

Excellent food. Great presentation and flavors.

From our early arrival it was very crowded. We had to seek out someone to take our drink order at our small table on their side porch. My Cosmopolitan drink for $12. Was very small, room temperature and not that good. The drink came without napkins and after seeing our waitress later we requested them along with the popcorn that is usually offered but was not. The napkins arrived and later the popcorn with apologies for its coldness and disclaimer that it was full of unpopped kernels. Our 7:30 reservation was delayed 20 minutes. Upon seating we were presented with the menu and were disappointed to learn that our $36. Order for dinner of 4 scallops did not even include a small vegetable. So, We each ordered the scallops and a salad. My red beet salad was ok, my husband’s green salad was good. Bread did come with dinner and it was warm and tasty as was the butter. The noise level in the restaurant was very loud and not what we enjoy. Please know that we have been patronizing this establishment for years and loved it, but recent changes do not encourage us to return in the near or distant future.

Another perfect evening at the Ebbitt Room!!! Favorite spot in Cape May. I love starting my night with a cocktail at the beautiful bar. Leo makes the best cocktails. Always look forward to seeing Patrick, the manager, he does an amazing job. Food is always delicious. The Broccoli Soup was the best soup I ever had in my life. We always get the cheese plate to start and the deviled eggs....... The best!!

From the minute we walked in we knew this place would be great. We started out with a cocktail at the bar and they were fantastic. The martinis with the blue cheese stuffed olive were delicious. Our table was ready right around our reservation time. Jeremy, our server, was great and his service was top notch. The food was so good, we had the steak and cake and the scallops and both were done to perfection. Can’t wait to come back.

Went here while on a holiday weekend get-a-way. The entire experience was lovely -from the cocktail at the bar to the romantic and delicious dinner with amazing wine! The noise level did make it hard to hear at first but with the 8pm seating it quieted down as most ppl left. The atmosphere and ambience in this cute B&B restaurant was so special has me wanting to stay at the Virginia on my next Cape Map stay.

We love coming to the Ebbitt Room. We've been visiting this area and restaurant for many years. This particular year, because I had to work Valentine's day, my hubby and I decided to make a trip to Cape May to celebrate a belated holiday. Our request for a quiet table at which to spend our special evening was met with the finest area for quiet and romantic conversation. If you've got a special occasion, or just want a nice venue for a quality dinner, try the Ebbitt Room. You won't be disappointed.

The food is good but the value is not equal. A dozen oysters for $40? Ridiculous. And it doesn’t say that on the menu. $36 for an entree of 4 scallops as well. Like I said, good food but not worth the price.

The Ebbitt Room is always a great experience! If you are lucky enough to get a seat at the small bar you're very lucky! The drinks are great, atmosphere wonderful and food delicious. I either get seafood or the chefs vegetarian. The vegetarian dish is always delicious and not an afterthought. My husband had the char and it was delicious . Desserts are also nice. My only complaint is that the coffee this last visit was only warm.

Not my first or even second time here and for good reason. The Ebbitt Room is a favorite and a stop we look forward to going to when staying at The Virginia House. Atmosphere is cozy and quaint with low lighting and quite conversation. The piano player on Friday and Saturday nights is the prefect compliment to the ambiance of the room.
The wine list isn't extensive or overcomplicated, but just right and paired perfectly for the meals served. Handcrafted cocktails are done with a level of sophistication not seen everyday anymore. As with the wine the beer selection is just right.
The meals prepared never disappoint and there is something for every palate. My particular favorite is the Tuna Tar-Tar. Served rare you will be greatly surprised. Obviously being a beach Hotel and Restaurant there is heavy bias tword the seafood selections, but you would be limiting yourself if you didn't order one of the meat selections.
Not to limit this to just The Ebbitt Room our stay in The Virginia House is something we look forward to every year. A constant favorite with cozy intimate rooms that just add to the allure of The Ebbitt Room.
I couldn't think of recommending any other Hotel and Restaurant in Cape May.
I am counting down the days until our next trip back.
