    Food, service and atmosphere were very good. Overall, we had a very nice experience and I would return. However if I'm being fair, the quality of the food as compared to the price was not a very good value. Union Park is a very nice experience, but the dining standard in Cape May is set high and I think we will try something else next New Year's eve.

    Excellent menu in our opinion, lobster tails were exceptional as was everything we ordered. Our server was wonderful, checking often to make sure we were pleased with everything. It was so much better than most new years dinner experiences. A fine restaurant!

    Considering That Cape May has a number of five star restaurants, Union Park should probably get a six. Is one of the best restaurants not just in Cape May but on the East Coast. We had a wonderful seafood chowder, plus interesting, and excellent duck and lobster tails from Maine lobsters. The service was prompt, confident, friendly, and attentive. We particularly like the fact that one of the servers with someone from Ukraine.

    This was our New Year's Eve celebration with our son and his lady. The food and service were wonderful, we were not rushed, and all had different selections from the fixed price menu. While somewhat expensive it was worth every penny! We dine here several times in a year and always have a great meal!

    The service was exceptional. Ambiance was nice. I enjoyed the burata. My husbands crab cake was not very good. It was soft and a little fishy. It looked and felt like it was heated in a microwave. His lobster was cooked to perfection. My short rib was awful. So overcooked that I couldn’t eat it. Desert was very good. The crème brûlée was delicious and the perfect temperature.

    We came here for Thanksgiving dinner. It was a pre-fixe menu, 3 courses. The food was very good! It's a beautiful dining room in an Inn typical of Cape May. Beautiful old Victorian decor and a front porch. You can hear the waves from the porch as it is right on Beach Ave. This is a BYOB but they do not really advertise as such because I believe they would rather you purchase the local winery wines they have by the bottle there. I am glad they are supporting local however we did bring out own bottles.
