The restaurant did not exist. We showed up and there was no sign explaining why there were closed, we found another restaurant owned by the same owners and they would not help us or give us a good explanation for the mix up. DO NOR RECOMMEND!
They Took reservation confirmed reservation then the place was closed. No sign telling us anything. Ruined the evening since summertime time and no openings. Not right
Best value in Cape May for a multi-course meal. The food is excellent. My favorite courses were the watermelon tomato feta, Spanakopita with chorizo, scallops and lamb chop and dessert! The experience was amazing! Highly recommending trying it. (This restaurant is best for those that love trying new things and don’t mind finding out the course when served) We absolutely loved it and will be back! Also consider trying sister restaurants vintage and George’s!
This was such a fun experience. Great tasting menu. Can say I didn't "love" a couple dishes but the others compensated. My husband is a vegetarian so they served us differently and the creativity on plant based items were extraordinary. We would come back again and again
Wonderful experience - fun and unique, and a good value for the beach. Service was great. Love that they offer BYOB and no corking fee. Was hoping for a bit more 'wow' with the dishes - while we liked all but one course, there wasn't any course that you walk away saying "that was the best X I ever had." That said, we will definitely be back again and I would recommend this place to friends.
I have seen several 'outstanding' reviews of Shamone; and a few very bad ones. Both are misleading.
This was our first time here, and we enjoyed our experience. Shamone serves a series of small plates 'tapas style' with a fixed menu/fixed price. With so many plates presented it is inevitable that you won't like everything, but most of the food is good, imaginative and nicely presented. For example - the pork with slaw; the lamb chop and bacon wrapped scallop; and the flatbread margarita were excellent. However, if I never see 'cantaloupe soup' again I will not be sorry! Service is well-paced, efficient and friendly. Overall, $35 a head is good value.
One thing certainly needs to change. There is a single 7pm seating. You end up waiting outside the venue on then upper floor of a small mall - uncomfortable. At 7pm George appears from behind a curtain, and proceeds to welcome each party, one by one and very slowly, showing them to their seats. It takes him about 20 minutes to seat approximately 30 people. This is ridiculous and tiresome - there must be better ways.
This is a place to come occasionally rather than frequently, but is well worth trying. We will return in due course.
Absolutely fabulous... From beginning to end... Fantastic experience. Will be back soon.
Been to Shamone multiple times over the past few years. Always a different menu experience, but also always exclllent.
Great food, beautiful ambiance, friendly wait staff! Absolutely worth to try!
Super fun dinner and delicious food.
The place is a little hard to find tucked away in the upper floor of the Mall on Washington st. If it weren’t for the other people waiting outside of the curtain entry I would never had found it. Other than that, I have not one bad thing to say about the place. The food was delicious, the service was good. The price is very reasonable. Don’t forget to bring your own wine as it is BYOB. We will probably visit again soon.
One of the most special dining experiences I have had in a long time. The food was exquisite and the tastings allowed for a wide array of palates. The service was excellent- the owner/chef/manager was charming - the servers so warm, friendly and attentive. The ambiance was beautiful and unique. We grooved to a fantastic playlist. The place is so intimate that be the end of the meal all of the guests were socializing. What a great vibe. It is the first place that got a high thumbs up from every member of the family - an extraordinary feat!! Definitely make a reservation at this restaurant. It is a winner!
Shamone was excellent. The chef was very welcoming and friendly. The staff was fun and efficient. The food was delicious and innovative. We will definitely be back.
A unique, multi course delicious eating experience. Amazing staff. Very friendly atmosphere.
Great experience and awesome food! Love that you get to try so many different dishes and BYOB always a plus.
Wait staff was engaging & fun. Food was excellent. Will definitely return
The most awesome dining experience ever with each bite it was a magical sensation on the taste buds
Fun lively place. High top seating. Tasting menu was really good - best courses were delicious pear and cheddar soup shooter, ahi tuna, cucumber and seaweed, lamb chop with scallop and bacon, and Bailey’s Irish cream mousse. So much fun. Was a little loud but definitely recommend.
Fantastic - always enjoy the experience at Shamone. Love the concept. Food was excellent, wait staff were awesome. Can't wait to go again soon.
When the truscuit cracker came out I knew the descriptions didnt match the food and i was out
Excellent service, excellent value, excellent food, a restaurant gem found in Cape May
Awesome ambiance, excellent service and delicious food. Highly recommend for date night as well as groups! We had a great time!
Interesting idea with fun ambiance, but mediocre food.
Outstanding experience! Almost like a secret society restaurant. Food was excellent.
What a delightful surprise! My daughter and I had a wonderful dinner last night at Shamone. It was so fun. At first we were skeptical about the location, inside a mall, but once we were warmly greeted and inside the restaurant it was a treat. The ambiance, candles, aromas, and fun music throughout dinner were perfect. We loved having our own bottle of water to serve ourselves as we needed. We lost count of our plates but we started with a gazpacho shooter and along the way had a delicious slider, shrimp kabob, short rib taco, salad, Buffalo chicken crustini, and much more. Before we left, we were making plans to come back and who else we were bringing. It was a totally reasonable fun option to a regular night out. Looking forward to the menu changes along the way. Thanks Shamone for a fun night.
Such a fun dining experience. all the Tapas were delicious.
A fun experience for foodies. 15 tapas, byob, great and knowledgeable staff, and it’s a festive party for all!
Love the concept. Didn’t love all the plates but would def come back! Also very hot in there. Need AC!
So much fun!!! I love Shamone!
Went for our anniversary. Fun atmosphere and amazong food.
Great service and good. It was great to be able to laugh with friends as loud as we wanted 👍
This was such a unique and fun experience. Not knowing what we were being served, however each course or tapa was delicious
We were so happily surprised. Wasn't sure what to expect-but we were warmly greeted and shown to our table (socially distanced), the food was phenomenal--every single plate of the 15--fairly priced. It was a fantastic dining experience and we can't wait to go back and take family along. Thanks for a job well done!
Food was fantastic and the vibe was great. Would definitely recommend!
A "must do" when in Cape May! Fabulous tapas experience...will definitely be back!
Many dishes, most were Luke warm and tasteless
