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.

There is an old saying:Too soon old. Too late smart.” Well, I got smart by finally trying the restaurant that is just a block from my home. The atmosphere was warm. Elegant The food delicious. Brilliantly imagined. Like the delicate paella. Oh I will be back. Now that I am smart.

I'm actually writing this review because we had a reservation here for 9 people on a friday night. We were coming a long way to have dinner and then go to a play in Deal. There was torrential rain, flooding and traffic all the way. I kept in tough with the restaurant for our time frame. After 6:45 we knew we were never going to be able to have dinner in time, so I asked if we could cancel. Most restaurants would have been very mad. The gentleman here could not have been nicer and wished us safety on the road. Another couple who lived closer, did go for dinner. They are FOODIE'S and loved the food and met our gentleman.
I will try to go another night.

No one was there when we arrived. Only one couple when we left. We like it this way - very quiet and the service was great. But the food we average (we sent back the "veal tenderloin" that was only a very dry veal chop). The price was outrageous excepy for bottles of wine.

I heard great things about this little gem of a restaurant and was not disappointed. It's nestled in the back of what appears to be a long forgotten bed and breakfast from the 20s or 30s. One step through the door though and you're instantly transported to it's heyday, half expecting to see bowler hats on the bar or a lounge singer adorning a flapper dress. Cocktails were delicious and the food was very good. Not "best meal I've ever had" good by far, but still a strong showing with inventive dishes and reasonably complex flavor profiles. The unique ambiance of the dinning room, live music (and even tap dancing) echoing in from the lobby bar, as well as the friendly service all helped to craft a memorable experience. If you're looking for something different for your next date night or special occasion, the restaurant at Hotel Tides is definitely worth checking out.

My wife and I were looking for a place to celebrate our wedding anniversary just a couple days early and went here based on suggestions of a few friends. Start to finish, though, it was an experience in mediocrity. Very dreary dining room, bland service and bland food. The food wasn’t bad per se- we had crab spring rolls (too dense to properly be called spring rolls), capellini fra diavlo (that my wife modified to be mild, so the chef was kind enough to change the sauce to a marinara), short ribs with grits and an order of brussel sprouts. Everything needed salt and pepper- not just the proteins but the sauces and sides were all badly underseasoned. Tiramisu was just average. My wife’s cocktails- a dirty vodka martini and an espresso martini- were made well. Service was just blah- he had zero personality and only offered the most basic of service. When I made our reservation I noted that we were celebrating our anniversary yet no mention was made- not like we were looking for a song-and-dance routine, but some acknowledgement would’ve been nice. Lastly, while the tin ceilings were a nice throwback touch to the decor, the room as a whole was very dank and depressing. We won’t be back.

The ambiance of the dining room is just spectacular along with the specialty cocktails and amazing food prepared fresh. The entrees are a bit more than some other restaurants, $30-35, but well worth it based on portion size and quality. The swordfish and scallops were the best we've had anywhere. I would recommend this place for a special occasion and romantic evening...

I stayed an the Tides Hotel years ago and loved the feel of the bar and restaurant, but had never eaten there before. Six of us went for dinner and everyone of us said it was one of the best meals we ever had.
The appetizers, especially the Mexican shrimp and the calamari. The entrees, short ribs, pork Milanese, swordfish...everything was outstanding. We had no room for dessert, but we'll be back...soon and often!

It was fine, even good, but not amazing. I don't really understand the hype -- it's definitely a hot spot, but just not sure why. Might go back and sit at the bar which seemed lively and fun -- the dining room is a big block of open space with interesting tin ceiling and wall decor that probably added to the loudness. It was one of those places we felt we had to try, but it didn't live up to our hopes.
