    Medium rare ordered meats were medium. Entrees were also over-spiced. Ice cream dessert was obviously scooped hours ago and placed in dish in freezer, as there were ice crystals forming from freezer burn. Overall nothing special.

    Loved pretty much everything. The only thing that was a little annoying was that it was a little too fast. The appetizers were bought out immediately and the plates were snatched up as I was eating my last bite. The service was excellent but we definitely felt rushed.

    The food was quite good. Loved the scallop ceviche app, and the duck and steak entrees. Good flavors and well prepared. The beet appetizer was good but was a bit boring… lacking much interesting flavor. Ksenja was our server and was wonderful! The atmosphere of the restaurant is a bit old fashioned.

    This was an absolutely magnificent meal in every respect. Every dish tasted great and was beautifully presented. The dining room is stately and beautiful. Service was excellent and very professional . Pricing fair, BYO helped of course. My only criticism would be that the upcharges for some of the add ons that we did NOThave ( we did choose others), seemed ridiculously high on top of the $69 per person price fixe. It was as if they priced the add ons without taking into account the appetizer price that was already built into the 69 price fixe to begin with. But this was very high level cooking and service on par w Peter Shields or Washington Inn -- maybe better. A really stunning meal.

    This is upscale dining, but a good value for the quality of the food and experience. The base prix fixe of $70 for three courses is not much more than you would pay for appetizer, entree, and dessert at a more moderate restaurant, and you get the presentation and service of a high end experience. It’s BYO option, but there are bottles from local Cape May winery, and the uncharge was not crazy. My husband upgraded to lobster. My tenderloin was cooked perfectly. With his upgraded entree, added bread, and wine, and a well-earned gratuity, it was a special night out, but worth it. If you are considering bringing young kids, just don’t, even if you think they will behave. The dining room is fairly tight, and not set up for high chairs, bags of kid stuff, or any special dining requests. Dress code smart casual, a collared shirt and long pants, ladies mostly in casual dresses.

    The food was very good. I got the fillet which was about 6 ounces. It came with string beans and mashed potatoes. I think there were about six string beans and very little mashed potatoes. Make sure you purchase the five dollar bread basket as Bread does not come with the meal and the portions are very small.

    Union Park has a three course dinner for 69.00. Superb service! Dining inside and limited dining outside. We had Caesar Salad and Beet Salad with Chèvre cheese. Both were excellent! We then had the scallops and short ribs as our entrees. Delicate flavoring. The dessert we selected was cheesecake with blueberry compote which was light and fluffy. The chocolate dessert was dense and delicious however the outside shell was dry and led me to wish I had selected another entree.

    Every year my husband and I vacation in Cape May, we try a new restaurant along with 3 others that are always on our list. Union Park has been on our must dine list for 6 years. Unfortunately, Union Park will drop off our list for next year and we’ll try a new restaurant in its place. We dined at Union Park last year and didn’t have an enjoyable evening, but we decided to give it another shot this year. The food is always good, but sometimes the service is off (which was the problem last year). Last night, our server was sweet and the food was good, but there is just something about it that we just don’t like anymore. Last year and this year, we celebrated our wedding anniversary at Union Park. Both years I added it to my requests and not one mention of our anniversary. I certainly wasn’t looking for anything free, but a nice private table would have been very much appreciated and perhaps a “Happy Anniversary “. The restaurant is getting very dated and needs a facelift. The manager is also not very pleasant.

    We were seated well before 2 other couples and 30 mins before another. The previous 2 had their checks signed and out before we were even were served dessert, which was after the couple that came 30 mins after us. All parties had the same food options and picks. We spent over 2 hours here and missed our chance for an evening walk on the beach on our last night.

    It had been several years since we dined here. They now have a full gluten-free menu as an alternative to the standard menu. We both started with the bay scallops appetizer, which was really good! Don’t be afraid to order this even if you’re drinking a big red wine….it is a very impressive offering that can stand up to it! Nancy ordered the salmon, which came with Yukon gold mashed potatoes and a killer sauce. I went for the lamb, which paired perfectly with the 07 Dominus we brought with us. Finished with the creme brûlée, which was also really good! My understanding from friends was that the last couple years, this place suffered from poor service and marginal food. I can say beyond the shadow of a doubt that Union Park is back in top form and is a “not to be missed” restaurant in Cape May!
