The food was great, as was the service. It was a little pricey even for New Year’s Eve. Coffee was extra and not included, but champagne was 🥳.

While our meal was excellent, I have a problem with not being informed that the only menu available was fixed price. Had I known when I made the reservation, I would have gone somewhere else. $145 for a meal was outlandish.
This is a great restaurant. Martine, our server, was excellent and very attentive. The restaurant and hotel were decorated beautifully. The food was well prepared and delicious. Our only issue was not knowing of the fixed price. May be a banner on OpenTable stating that the restaurant is fixed price only would be helpful.

The NYE menu was very good! Each of the 4 courses were delicious! We were seated promptly, the service was great, we did not feel rushed. The only downside was that it was a little pricey. We are looking forward to trying the fixed price menu in the summer!

Sadly not what it used to be. I totally understand the new fixed price menu and am happy to pay an extra 50% to order extra courses, however, I don't expect four appetizers to come out at once. I have also never been told that I can't order food on the rare side of medium-rare and that I have to choose one or the other. I chose rare for my lamb, it was literally raw (fortunately I love carpaccio, tartare etc, but still...lamb?). My waitress certainly didn't care, she just wanted to go home...

Thought everything was amazing. Good size portions. I would maybe improve on the desserts. The crème brûlée was excellent though.

Beautiful room and unique menu. But Paying $5 extra for bread is unnecessary and ridiculous. Prix fixe without option for a la carte shoud be warned upon booking too. Some people don't want/need 3 courses.

This was the best dinner experience I've had. We took our teenagers and they were searching Google for the menu items they were unfamiliar with. Every plate was clean when we finished. Perfect portions. The filet mignon is to die for.

The service was just ok, but ‘greeter’ was cold and brusque. A 20% tip is automatically added so there’s no way to really express less than satisfactory servers. Food was OK. The decor is nice but the wait staff really make you feel uncomfortable

Service was excellent. My husband had the salmon that was topped with shredded beets. Somehow the beets overpowered the salmon. Next time he said he would order the chicken which I ordered. It was outstanding

Disappointing when compared to the dining experience pre covid. The fix price menu was up by 50% and the portions were downsized. My dinner wasn't hot and the brownie dessert was partially frozen. Add ons were very expensive......truffle fries were $25.

We extended our Thanksgiving tradition to dine in Cape May, and this year the Union Park was excellent. Service was prompt, efficient, and polite. The Prix Fixe dinner was delicious, and my wife especially enjoyed the crisp turkey skin garnish!
