    We came here for Thanksgiving dinner. It was a pre-fixe menu, 3 courses. The food was very good! It's a beautiful dining room in an Inn typical of Cape May. Beautiful old Victorian decor and a front porch. You can hear the waves from the porch as it is right on Beach Ave. This is a BYOB but they do not really advertise as such because I believe they would rather you purchase the local winery wines they have by the bottle there. I am glad they are supporting local however we did bring out own bottles.

    Food and service were both excellent. Filet Mignon was very tender and perfectly seasoned. The Tuna tartare was excellent as were my husband’s Thai rock shrimp and Salmon entree. Desserts were deliciously decadent.

    Have been coming here for special date nights for YEARS, but something has changed besides the price fix. The beet salad was amazing and flavorful as usual, the burrata VERY tangy, just short of too tangy. Ordered the lobster, but it was not sweet or buttery, rather rubbery and chewy, and the saffron overpowered the risotto, giving it too much kick. Hubby’s salmon was very dry, overcooked, not enough sauce. Desert was good, not outstanding….for a price fix we expected better and stellar. First really unsatisfactory meal we EVER had at UP, but may make it out last. Waitress insisted nothing had changed, same chef. Not so sure that’s true…she was rather unfazed with our impression of the meal.

    Came for lunch on a Saturday. We chose to sit outside but it was a bit cold and windy, even with the heated tent. The lunch menu was great and very good. The service was extremely slow. It didn't seem overly crowded, so not sure why. After 40 minutes, we only had our soup and no bread as other tables nearby did. Could have been an off day, but we'd try it again as it was highly recommended to us by locals.

    Everything was good except for the fact that we visited during restaurant weekend which is supposed to be a discount compared to normal pricing. At $65 per person I don’t believe this would be any different than normal pricing. 4 people dining with a cappuccino ( which was not included) came to $95 each when including tax and tip.
