    Made a reservation and was told it would still be 20-25 minutes until we’d be seated. 45 minutes later and we still weren’t seated, no explanation or apology for the wait. Was then told we could be seated outside. If they had set the expectation it’d be a longer wait, I would have been less annoyed and could have walked around Avalon. Drinks were pretty good and Jasmine our waitress was great once we were finally seated, but probably won’t be returning.

    Interesting menu - well-executed dishes that were delicious. Service was a bit slow, considering the restaurant was less than half-full for lunch on a weekday. I would readily return, though.

    Food was amazing and service was spot-on - always available but not overly intrusive. The crepe appetizer and the popcorn were a hit with the whole table. Loved my halibut! Atmosphere was beautiful and festive. Loved all of it! Will definitely be back!

    Love the Cape and have frequented several times in the last few months. Service has been good, but not GREAT. Hostess seemed half awake when we got there and then several wait staff were hanging around the bar and we had to get someone for service at various times. (just very inattentive). Food is generally good, but the mussels have been consistently VERY SMALL and not worth getting. Other things we LOVE- the sushi is a good choice, love the CREPES and if a nice night- love the rooftop- great wine selection and tried the S .African Bordeaux last night- it was perfect!

    We had the barbecue crepes, ostrich sliders, and then shared the chicken, filet, shrimp roll, and halibut. Everything was awesome. We sat at the high top on the roof overlooking the street. Perfect for the 4 of us. We will be going back soon.

    This was our first time coming to The Cape at Avalon & we really, really enjoyed it. It was a nice evening so we sat on the patio & our server Jasmine did such a great job of taking care of us. The food was amazing, the cocktails were outstanding, and the ambiance was perfect. We’ll definitely come back!

    Cocktails were excellent! Highly recommend the French 77. We shared 3 appetizers (Seafood Mixta, Crab Dip, Ostrich Sliders) for 4 of us. Then we all shared 1.5lb of Whole Red Snapper, a house salad and a side of coconut rice for dinner. No dessert because we were full. Service and ambiance were excellent and food was top quality.

    Our first time here & we’ll definitely be back! We had the crab dip appetizer which was yummy. Ordered the fried red snapper, peri peri prawn tacos, and grilled salmon. All were hits! Ambience was nice and server Eric was personable’ knowledgeable with the menu.

    I’ve enjoyed the Cape on numerous occasions. I had the gazpacho soup yesterday and was not the biggest fan. It was puréed and had an odd, kind of sweet taste. My luncheon guest ordered it too and ate very little of it. I wouldn’t recommend it. The peri peri prawn tacos however were delicious and are always excellent. Tasty sauce and nice big shrimp. My main issue with the lunch is the brewed ice tea. I’m an ice tea lover so I usually enjoy drinking 2-3 glasses when I eat lunch out. The tea at The Cape is $4.00 a glass and there are no free refills. My friend and I literally had a $16.00 ice tea bill for two glasses of tea each. I can go to any other restaurant at Avalon and drink unlimited tea and even get one to go for under $4.00. The brewed tea has some flavor infused into it so maybe that’s why they don’t do free refills but in that case maybe brew a separate plain old ice tea? I honestly don’t love the flavoring so my vote is to ditch it.

    Extremely small portions and taste is def off. I went with Salmon hoping it would be a light option for a late dinner. Very heavy dish with cooked olives, close to non existant sauteed spinach ( literally 2-3 leaves of spinchach), there was nothing light about the dish except of it’s portion. It was so heavy, I could not even finish it

    It was our 20th anniversary lunch and I made a reservation to celebrate. The service was just ok…we got our food and drinks but didn’t have any special service. The waitress was slow to come gather our plates and didn’t even ask if we wanted dessert. The snapper I ordered was good but not worth the hefty price. I loved the ambiance and the food and drinks were done well, but I was disappointed that it wasn’t a great experience, especially for our special occasion lunch.

    Had made a reservation to sit on the roof and was told they had no room unless we waited an extra hour. Server was rude. Cocktail came with ants in the olives and we were told that it was “unfortunate” and they offered us free dessert 🤦‍♀️. We declined and they took 10% off the check. But we were disappointed in the service. Manager said our server was new. She just seemed rude. We had been there previously and had a great overall experience. Not sure what has changed.
