Have been dying to go to this restaurant for many years and it was fabulous. The very quiet older crowd kind of put me off a little, but the waitress put us on the enclosed porch as outside was not available and we were happier. It's a bit on the pricier side but well worth it. The food was amazing and we will definitely return next time we are in the area.

Very nice dinner. We had the pre fixed menu. I had the beets,lobster with risotto and fruit with custard for dessert All for 39.00. My husband had crab cake, lobster and chocolate mousse for dessert. My father in law had crab cakes,short ribs,mashed potatoes and string beans with cream puffs filled with chocolate chip ice cream .They had a wonderful Father’s Day Dinner. Delicious and affordable. Also great that it’s a BYOB.

Wonderful atmosphere. We felt relaxed, not rushed, like dining should be. I loved their eclectic, yet classy, choices. We both enjoyed our dish. The fact that it was a BYOB was great also.
The place is very clean but needs a little sprucing up. Keeping in mind that old is good in Cape May this felt more like Grandmom's worn out house then elegant. Just my opinion. Some may like that.
Having said that, we will definitely return. The service and food made it worth the visit!

We dined at the Union Park to celebrate our anniversary. The restaurant is an upscale establishment in an old hotel. Restaurant week was being featured on the night that we dined. Therefore, we got a three course meal for 35.00 per person. It was a very good deal. The food was nicely prepared and portions were generous.

While priding myself in patience and quality obsessed; I went off of the ratings and was left...lackluster. My lobster was not touched yet not asked what was the issue. It was so abundant in salt that it was unfortunately, inedible. The wait between courses was long for a quite evening to the point we were restless. Maybe it was a rarity; I hope so for the review base.

We went during Restaurant week & had fabulous meals. The scallops & shrimp were delicious & so was my sister's lobster. Waitress, Liz, was friendly& efficient. The slaw with the scallops & shrimp was a bit too much for my taste. I would have preferred less of it or something else, but the scallops& shrimp had such great flavor. Would also have liked more bread.

Food and service were good. We felt rushed... we guess because it was restaurant week. Not sure if we would go back under those circumstances. It was a special anniversary and we were hoping to take our time that evening. We were seated at a window but the scene was overlooking the parking lot. We requested special seating but do not think that was it.

The Servers were exceptional. The best part it is a BYOB.

After hearing rave reviews from friends, we decided that my husband‘s birthday would be the perfect occasion to celebrate at Union Park.
We were lucky enough to be seated at Laurie’s table. She was very cheerful and extremely efficient. We needed quarters for the parking meter, we had run short. They were out of quarters at the front desk. Laurie checked her purse and came back with quarters in exchange for $1 from us. That was a very sweet thing for her to do, we no longer had to stress about the time, and appreciated the extra effort on her part! The entire waitstaff is polite, friendly and professional.
We visited during restaurant week ~ that menu was not much different from Union Park’s regular menu. The quality of the food was first rate. The preparation was inspired, the ingredients were extremely fresh, the flavoring and seasoning delightful. We can’t wait to return, even when it’s no longer restaurant week.

Chose this as one of our "Restaurant Week" picks. Location across from ocean. Outdoor dining was not available due to wind. It's a BYOB but they do have certain wines available from local vinyards to purchase by the bottle (the Cape May Winery Pinot Noir was not good at all!! Waitress offered to return it but we felt badly since she opened it...at $23/bottle though, I guess you get what you pay for). The food was presented beautifully, but having similar dishes at another area establishment the evening prior, it was just "ok". They also rushed the courses & brought the prix fixe dessert course without offering coffee first. So we sat there & waited another 10 minutes staring at the dessert. Staff was friendly & nice. Water glasses filled regularly. Glad we got to try a few restaurants via the Restaurant Week promo during our first (& not last) visit to Cape May!

This was one of our favorite places to eat. We discovered it on restaurant week and loved it. We went there for dinners after and enjoyed them all.
Recently we went on restaurant week again and were extremely disappointed. The food on the restaurant week menu was sparse, my meat was overdone and dry. It seemed odd to put out a cheap sparse menu when you are trying to attract people. I asked for ONE scoop of vanilla ice cream with my brownie and I got one VERY TINY baby scoop that cost 6 dollars! We paid four dollars
For a cup of cold coffee and asked for cream 3 times and still a watery substance they called half and half came to the table. It was not the same dining experience we have had in the past.
