Bad management. If you are going to serve just what you have left before closing for the winter--then tell your customers, or make an accommodation. an apology would be nice as well.
My wife and I were in town for New Years Eve and New Years Day. I know it is off-season, and, not surprisingly, many places were closed. But Tisha's was rated well, the menu looked interesting and so I booked it for January 1.
Short story: half the appetizers were "out". Some of the entrees as well. My dinner came with a "substitute" pasta that a) changed the dish completely, b) was overcooked and mushy, and c) came without a warning that the fettuccine was out.
Dessert? 3 out of 6 out--and no ice cream for the remaining ala mode items.
All not the end of the world--but no warning given. Nothing on the website or the Open Table reservation that the menu would be limited. We would have gone elsewhere.
Food? Stale bread. My appetizer of pumpkin gnocci was burnt and swimming in oil. My wife's appetizer of New England clam chowder was excellent. My wife's dinner of seafood risotto came without the clams--the server caught it and made the addition. Mine came--I looked at it and said, this isn't what I ordered--and I got a half-baked, oh, sorry, we're out of what you ordered, we substituted this. In other words, f.u.
Clearly everyone from the non-smiling hostess to the kitchen staff had one foot out the door. Fine. Just warn us--or, heaven forbid, cut the price.
We weren't even offered a cup of coffee on the house--again, bad management, bad service,-- just a really bad experience.
Tishas will be closed for 6 weeks for a well deserved vacation. Happy we were able to have an excellent dinner on New Years Day before their official hiatus.
We came here for NYE's dinner. The staff was friendly and the service was outstanding for a busy night. The food was excellent. Everyone loved the filet mignon! We will definitely be back.
We had a delicious dinner at Tisha’s on New Years Eve! Both the food and service were excellent. The short rib pappardelle was great comfort food for such a freezing cold night. The kale caeser salad was also delicious. Worth a visit. You won’t be disappointed!
They were very accommodating and sat us right away when we were early for our reservation. Ample spacing of tables and were able to have conversations easily. Server was very attentive and friendly. Food was very good and plentiful.
We really enjoyed the casual elegance and romantic atmosphere. The food was delicious, we especially enjoyed the short rib pappardelle and the scallops risotto.Both were delicious! Great,attentive service as well. Will definitely be back!
Our dining experience last eve was as phenomenal as the 3 times before! Excellent food, wonderful ambience and a staff that is truly first rate. Brenda continues to be a delight to see as we 1st walk through the door. We vowed to try as many different restaurants as we possibly could now that we are here on a regular basis...But- we keep finding ourselves drawn to Tish’s!
Wonderful, attentive staff, excellent food. Had appetizers, entrees and dessert. Every bite of food was delicious.
We have fined for years at Tishas! Always a hit!! Since 1989!!! Amazing food and service always.
Must go every time we come to Cape May
