    Style over substance. Too dark and loud. Soup and salad were good but some of the other plates seemed to have come from the frozen foods section (eggroll, puff pastry app). Not that they weren’t tasty, they just didn’t seem homemade. Meat was disappointing. Korean fried chicken and waffle was a wing, so it was difficult to eat with the waffle. I expected a spicy, crispy skin which it didn’t have. Lamb was a little tough and gamey. For those wondering, the 15 small-plate courses do fill you up. Dessert was not one of the courses…it was offered separately but by that point we were ready to leave. Overall, the concept is good, but it fell short.

    My meal was, hands down, the best that I have eaten in several years. Every course was outstanding. My only suggestions are to include a small dessert or 2 as the last course and to provide a menu at the start of the meal so the diners know what to expect. The food and service were outstanding.

    We were really impressed by the ambiance and the chef/owner George. The food was excellent. Music was way too loud but we asked that it be reduced and it was somewhat reduced which was fine. The music was great and added to the experience. My only complaints were the following: 1. It was advertised as 15 small plates. We were counting and by plate #9, there was so much food, I decided not eat much from next two plates. There were only 11 plates served. It was not mentioned that 4 plates had 2 of the 15. I would have eaten more of the last several plates. 2. The server could not get to the restaurant so the chef was both server and chef, which was fine. He did a great job. However, the last plate was served by.a girl from the kitchen. She then came and gave us a choice for dessert from 2 options. Thinking that this was kart of the 15 plates, , we ordered dessert. I normally do not eat dessert and just ate two mouthfuls. . When the bill was presented, we were charged $20 for the desserts ($10/pp). Had we been told there was a surcharge, we would not have ordered the dessert. Considering the above and now understanding the menu, we would definitely return.

    Shamone was a fantastic experience. We ate there for the bottom-less brunch as well as the 15 course dinner. Every course of the dinner was delicious. The ambiance is great at night with the room darkened to eat by romantic candlelight. The music selection is also great and enjoyable. The bottom-less brunch was a steal. For $15 anywhere else in Cape May you will get some eggs and home fries but at Shamone you can get multiple dishes that are all delicious and generously portioned. 100% will recommend. Reservations generally are booked weeks in advance for good reason

    Shamone was terrific! We went on Saturday at 9:30AM and had prompt, great service. The endless brunch is great; you can order more than one entree once you've finished your first one. We had one each (breakfast tacos and shrimp and grits both of which were wonderful) then shared the spanakopita which was perfect!

    This little gem in Cape May is all about having fun. Usually one would expect a place with a 15 course tasting menu to be a bit on the stuffy side with the servers telling you what the best way to eat a course (usually with 10 ingredients) would be. Not here. The courses were takes on more hip traditional items (pulled pork sliders w/ German potato salad) that were well prepared and served at a pleasant pace. Combine that with the Speakeasy-type atmosphere and, like I said, all about the fun. We had a great time and a great meal. Oh, and the price can’t be beat.

    Our first time at Shamone for brunch. PLenty of choices,from quiche and breakfast tacos to sweet treats like waffles, and guava pastry. You can even choose more than one if you can't decide, and share at the table. What a fun concept, all for 15 $ a person excluding drinks. We had a great time. Its not your typical eggs over easy and bacon place for sure.

    What an experience! The food was delicious starting with the potato leek bisque, the salmon & scallops were Divine. The corn elote was deeeeelicious. I do wish the music was a tad lower so we could hear each other better but overall it was a great experience. I loved the vibe & I let them know ahead of time that I was pregnant and they accommodated any dietary restrictions. One of the guests in my party let them know of her dietary restriction when we arrived and they accommodated without hesitation.

We are from New York and found this place to be nothing short of spectacular. Our waitress Alex was hilarious and friendly.

    Anything goes! Part of the fun is not knowing in advance what Chef has chosen to offer for the 15 course tapas dinner. I was extremely impressed to have been asked in advance if I had allergies to certain foods. I am a pescatarian, and Chef made certain that any course featuring meat would, instead, include fish or shellfish for me. Our server handled all of the 22-or-so diners (it is a very small place) expertly, and explained each dish. She was terrific. When my husband and I return to Cape May next year, we will definitely return for another exciting dining experience at Shamone.

    Very unique experience. The food was excellent (4.5 stars) and everything else was very solid. The one shortcoming is the amount of food. My wife and I are fit and don't look for large portions, but we left dinner hungry and had to stop for a slice of pizza. The "15" courses is a bit misleading as they count mashed potatoes and other side items as a course. With all that said, the cost was very reasonable so I most definitely didn't feel like we were ripped off, just still hungry.

    Food absolutely delicious and the all you can eat brunch so worth the price. Portions are large so suggest everyone ordering something different in order to share and taste a variety. After each of us finished our first course, barely any room left to order more! The carafe of OJ such a steal at $6! Place is small (6 tables) with funky decorations. Only downside was that two of the four seats at our high top table didn't have backs, so not that comfortable.
