    We had enjoyed many meals at Aletheas over the years and were hoping that Ocean 7 would continue this tradition. Unfortunately, this was not the case. Our dinner reservations were for Friday, 2/16 which unfortunately was the night that a large event was scheduled at the hotel. After we gave our orders quite a bit of time went by until our server returned and told us the short rib was sold out. At 7PM? When they had only been open since 5:00?We reluctantly made another selection. The Caesar salad was good. Our main courses (spicy pork) were OK. Dessert was good. Our server was nice but seemed rushed and disorganized. In addition to the mix up with the short rib, she forgot to tell us the specials, and never checked in to see how we were doing. The second glass of wine that we ordered never appeared. Overall we felt like the attention (and the short rib) should have been getting was likely going to the participants at the large event in the hotel. We won’t be back.

    The employees were very nice. The location is great - right across from the ocean. The hot pretzel appetizer was fair. The pretzel itself was tasty but the crab dip was fair. Our main dishes took awhile to be served to us. My wife’s scallops were cooked perfectly and were very good. The rice and sauce that it came with was very bland and tasteless. My pork ragu dish served over ziti was not that good. The ragu sauce tasted more like a chili and the ziti was clumped together. Most likely will not go back there for dinner when we are down in Cape May.

    French onion soup and New England Chowder were excellent, the scallops had sour cream with them which was odd, and I personally didn't care for. Great that they are open in the off season, and would sit at the bar the next time.

    For Breakfast with Santa you are simply paying to be in Cape May and have Santa in the building. The food was horrible and it is hard to mess up breakfast! While the Santa was great, we will not be going back next year and will try Congress Hall instead.

    The food was overpriced for the taste. The server was slow. The service was quick. Assuming they opened at 5 and we put our order in at 5:15 and got our food at 5:17 proved they don’t make to order it is all prepared a head of time. The server was nice but after asking for the check and waiting 25 minutes to actually get it on our table was alarming. I think that if the food is going to be expensive, the dinner rolls shouldn’t be rock hard potato rolls I can get off the shelf at Walmart and the least they can do is wrap your food for you. Will not be returning.

    Unfortunately breakfast with Santa for $40/head was disappointing to our party of 11. Our reservations were at 12:00 and they were out of almost everything. The French toast casserole was almost gone and what was left was stuck to the bottom of the tray and very well done. They replenished it with regular French toast that was not good. Poor selection of bagels, muffins and cookies. Old eggs in the tray. So disappointed. The manager was Apologetic when I approached her at the end of our meal but I felt it was important to share our experience.

    We booked breakfast with Santa, as we had done in previous years. Unfortunately, the experience this time was not as it was in previous years. I felt at the price was a little high however, I still booked it again because we had such a great experience previously. All of the food items were cold and lacked flavor. The pile of clean dishes on the buffet station were found to be dirty, which was noticed by my husband when he grabbed one and then got food on his clothing. In addition to the high food price one mimosa was $14. We certainly never mind paying for good food or drinks but unfortunately, this was just a little too much. The only positive was that Santa was there, and our server was nice.

    We dined here right after the Christmas parade, on the busiest winter weekend in Cape May. Since the parade was near bye, the noise was a bit loud but understandable. Since many of the tourists hit the hotel bar after the parade, drink service was slow. The staff was friendly, the food was very good and we left saying that we would come back.

    Interesting place. I have to believe that they are a bit more organized during the summer season. Perhaps they might have more staff in the summertime as they seemed a little bit short on help for a thanksgiving holiday dinner. Service was pretty good and our server was kind and helpful. Our Turkey fare dinner wasn't bad but was really just pretty average. Small portion of cranberry sauce and portion of stuffing was tiny. When I first saw it on my plate I thought it was a mini muffin. Don't know that we'll come here again for holiday dinner, but would be very curious to see how they do in the summertime.

    This was our first time here. We were seated in what appeared to be a banquet room, disconnected from what appeared to be the regular restaurant. There was no advance notice of the 2 very different settings. The room was very bright with no comfortable atmosphere. There were self serve tables that were a turn off in this era of communicable diseases. The salads were not well stocked. The soup was supposed to offer 2 choices. There were none available at first but one eventually showed up. This caused a rush of everyone trying to serve themselves at the same time. The soup was debatable on whether it was either one of the 2 offerings. The wait for our entrees was unreasonable. The price for a domestic bottle of beer was almost double the average price. The staff were very friendly and I feel that they were doing their best. It just seemed to be managed poorly.

I would go again & recommend to others to try

    Overall the food was delicious. I enjoyed the steak and turtle cheesecake. The apple pie was a little sugary for my liking but that’s ok. The waitress was nice and on task when she realized two of her tables hadn’t received their orders when another table got their orders before we did. We had ordered prior to that table. It happens occasionally where I work too

    This was an overall excellent experience. If you want a no fuss no muss easy breezy Thanksgiving, this is it. Soup and salad to start, huge entree and a dessert bar…I mean this is the way to go for a relaxing holiday if thats what you’re looking for…sometimes you need a holiday to yourself or with a couple of friends. Staff is excellent, our waitress was great and food is delicious. Compliments to the chef. Thank you for making this holiday one to remember!
