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
Love the atmosphere

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!

This was a tradition for us, having Thanksgiving Dinner at Union Park. As usual, the ambiance was terrific and the food outstanding. We were not rushed, and the prix fixe choices were amazing, many more than prior years. We would highly recommend Union Park.

Had a great Thanksgiving day meal. Service was outstanding, very in tune with our needs. People serving the food to the table knew where it went, which seems to be a lost art lately. Only drawback was that our bread was too hard to eat, but since this was a prix-fix menu on a holiday, it didn't matter to us. It was the largest number of people we have ate with indoors since pre-Covid. Staff was face-shielded though.

It is a nice dining area and the service was courteous and relatively fast. Unfortunately, for a $75 price fixed menu on Thanksgiving portion sizes very small, and for example, the beet salad had maybe one chopped beet in it. The cucumber salad with the Salmon contained one cucumber. The Salmon was undercooked and fleshy, and the apple cobbler consisted of a few slices of barely cooked apples in a hard tart shell. Disappointing to say the least.

Our party, and gratefully got just that of five enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner at Union Park Restaurant at the Hotel Macomber in Cape May, NJ, for 2021, and had a wonderful experience. It was our first holiday at a restaurant in many years, and we were hoping for an intimate experience.

The service was friendly and courteous, the food was impeccable, and the dining room is just lovely. Because everyone was in the mood for something a little different, there was a lot of sampling and sharing. Beautiful food; a feast for the eyes and the mouth.

Recommend gladly.

Always excellent. This is the type of restaurant you go for fine dining. It’s a three course pre-fixe menu. There are optional add-ons and up charges for special entrees. They started to charge $5 for the artisanal bread basket and I see people upset about that. If $5 is going to bother you on principle, then this is not the place for you. I eat here knowing it’s going to be $150-200 for dinner for two with BYO. And it’s worth every penny if you appreciate high quality, well presented food. If your frugal…. Skip it.

place is a rip-off, 3 course buy-in is a scam, it's a $65 minimum they give you a tiny appetizer and lame dessert, we had to pay $5 for bread and made the mistake of trying to add one lame crab cake that cost us an extra $30. Will never return and will warn others to stay away, surprised they didn't charge us to bring the food to the table. just a gross feeling.
