Featuring New American Cuisine, our chef highlights fresh, seasonal, and local ingredients. Helping to feed the "Farmer to Chef" trend, local markets are key ingredients in our menu at the Hotel Tides.

The whimsical, intricately detailed tin ceiling and walls - dating back to the 1920's - demanded a ten month renovation, showcasing the cultural heritage and history in modern day Asbury Park.

Excellent food. Waiter Chris made good suggestions and was affable, but brought a more expensive wine when we asked for the $9 house variety. Nevertheless, we will return for the excellent food.

Fabulous gem. Shame on us for not going sooner, living one town away. Salad was fresh, short ribs tender and seafood flakey. Our server couldn't have been more informative or engaging.

Rude and dismissive wait staff. Been to Hotel Tides many times. Haven’t been there in two years. Went this past Saturday. My wife and I were seated at a table located in the lobby. I noticed four or five tables scattered around the lobby. The table we were seated at was located by a wall unit air conditioner/fan. The ac was blowing cold air on my back and I asked the server to be seated in the dining room. He advised that there were no more two tops in the dining room. He then showed us to a table located by the front door. The table was surrounded by an ATM machine and a coat rack. When two customers walked in through the front door it was just as cold as it was by the air conditioner The server walked away with out any more interaction. At this point my wife and left.
It is hard to believe that in a business that relies on good customer service and return business we would be treated the way we were. The restaurant was not busy. We will definitely not be back and will no longer recommended this restaurant to family and friends. The arrogance and dismissive behavior was incredible!

Great night out. Wonderful food and excellent service.
Very clean and strict abidance of covid protocol ... the only reason ‘ambiance’ isn’t ‘excellent’, it’s can’t be under the necessary rules/regulations.
Will absolutely be back!

We had a delicious meal. Filet of beef and scallops. Our server Chris is always excellent and friendly. Manager Ryan takes good care of us. They follow all the Pandemic rules diligently but they still make it a very enjoyable evening

This is a small gem tucked away in a neighborhood far from the hustle of downtown or boardwalk Asbury. Quaint, cozy, and a great place to have a relaxed evening. The food was excellent as were the cocktails. Tides is a real find among the Asbury cultural scene. Its distance from the center of the nightlife means you don't have to fret over finding parking among hoardes of diners, concert goers, and all night revelers. It also allows a unique opportunity to enjoy an intimate evening of good food and drink without lots of noise or a feeling that you're getting lost in the shuffle of a busy Saturday night. Asbury prices in general are a tad too high, and Tides is comparable. However, relative to other restaurants in town, their overall value and experience is higher. Another high point is that they serve reasonable portions, which unfortunately tends to be an issue in Asbury. In my experience, there are only about five restaurants that serve portions appropriate to their price and this is one of them.

In warmer months they have outdoor seating on the front porch. Another selling point.

The service was excellent and efficient without being stuffy. The wine and alcohol selections are good, but not a large selection if you are choosy. The food variety offered something for everyone and was very tasty. My only suggestion is that they serve the food a bit hotter; it wasn't cold or undercooked by any means, but if you are the kind of person who likes his food hot you would be sending it back.

The food quality has definitely gone down in the several times we’ve eaten there. Service has always been good but you can’t eat service. Fish was served lukewarm to cold and mussels lacked flavor. Accompaniments to my scallops needed salt which should not be the case.

The atmosphere was charming and so were the staff. It was such a cozy place to be on a cold night. But the best thing was the food! The scallops were the best I’ve ever eaten and my friend’s short ribs were perfect. Can’t wait to go back.

We had a wonderful experience at The Hotel Tides. There were 4 of us and we each had something different for dinner and we shared appetizers. Each meal was delicious and everyone was raving about their choices. We had the steak special, short rib, crab cakes and the chicken dish. For apps we had the salad, tuna, and the ever fabulous mussels. Our server was knowledgable and a lot of fun. We are all looking forward to our next visit.

Service was extremely slow for a non-fully seated restaurant on a Saturday night. Our server was inattentive w/ our table. Food took an unusually long time to come out from the kitchen. Food was luke warm and way over-salted. Sadly, I will not be returning nor recommending this restaurant.

Our second visit to this restaurant for celebration. The first was for my husband's birthday, the second, this time, was for our anniversary.

I'm shocked this place is not more visible for it's AMAZING food and service! Consistently great service. Lovely decor and the menu leaves no disappointment. I did not offer 5 stars on food this time around just because the short rib my husband ordered was a bit less "fall of the bone" than we expected. Not sure if it was quality of the meat or the meat temperature. My duck was tasty, I only wish the meal was a bit more hot to service.

We had the squash soup, bang bang shrimp as starters. 5 stars. The ricotta cheesecake was yummy, a little more firm textured than I expected, but great. The vanilla creme brulee...GET IT! Perfection. Carl was our server and he is just an awesome down to earth and graceful human.

The establishment is a jewel, beautifully appointed white table cloth high end experience. We tried Cave the night before and it was wonderful food, but the ambiance does not compete.

I say go for Tides!
