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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!
