"Fans attest quality is everything at Cookie Till's legendary Margate New American where well-trained servers offer on-target suggestions from the menu of excellent locally sourced fare and extensive wine list; the mood is upbeat in the multiroom space that's usually packed with an ‘in' crowd, which is why regulars recommend reservations in the summer and on weekends year-round."

Perfect evening for our 25th anniversary! Colleen took care of us and did an excellent job. The cowboy steak was cooked perfectly, and my wife's 2 lb. lobster was quite succulent. We will be back!

S & C never disappoints us! The cuisine is always delicious and the service is superb. I attribute the success and delight of customers to the hands on oversight of Cookie who is the consummate restauranteur!
Thank you for another delightful evening.

So good! I had a salad and the Seafood Pan Roast, my husband had the Sunday Pasta with Pork Chop Gravy. They do everything right with an innovative menu and the freshest ingredients-loved it!

Good overall experience . If you live within 10-15 minutes of the location it’s worth it. If you are coming from further such as Cape May County you can get the same experience across the board in your backyard. I was slightly disappointed with the service to be honest. The dessert was amazing. The oysters were superb. The entrees were good overall. The filet is outstanding.

It was wonderful as usual. It’s always a delicious meal with great service!

The only issue I have is with trying to modify the reservations with Open table I usually have to call the restaurant directly if the time needs changing or the number of guests needs changing.

For a special dinner, you can hardly beat Steve & Cookie’s! It’s chefs are consistently excellent, often creatively offering new twists on dishes we love. And the wait staff is efficient and very helpful.

Excellent food and service. The only criticism is if you have 5:00 reservations you cannot stay in Restaurant before 5. Even though they have a full bar, you cannot have a before dinner drink or have a comfortable seat. We had to wait in our car. They should consider opening the bar at 4:30, especially on holidays. It did put a little damper on an otherwise amazing meal.

Very expensive, $110 bill with no booze or desert. Service is done by kids, that gather and gossip by the bar. Expected more professionalism for the price.

Excellent food as always. Our server Hector was very friendly & attentive as well as our food runner.
We ordered the suplini, burrata, bouillabaisse, cowboy steak & jumbo lump crab over pasta. Everything was delicious. We didn’t even have room for dessert. My favorite restaurant still!

Our waitress Kay was great! The food was delicious! Everything we ordered was beautifully presented. The negative...we could not hear each other speak at all, I know you could do nothing about this but the table of 5 young women, right behind us were so loud and boisterous... as if they were hanging at a bar, so loud that many other patrons on the other side of the room were turning around. When we were first shown our table I wanted to be seated at another immediately but didn't since you were already so crowded I assumed this was the only table. The draft from the door was very uncomfortable so much so I had to wrap my coat around my legs. The lentil soup my husband ordered was lukewarm. We had to wait very long for our meal...45 minutes maybe more after the first course. The waitress came by 3 times and apologized. We don't like to complain, but since you asked I felt compelled to let you know...I do want to commend you on an amazing menu and delicious innovative meals you serve. Also, the young men pouring water etc. were all very, very pleasant and right on top of everything! Thank you for a delicious meal. Adonna Calabrese
