Union Park Ratings and Reviews
Went for NYE, 2 couples. Pre-fix menu with several great choices, after the amuse bouche at the server's recommendation table ordered the lobster bisque, it was as good as she said. For the appetizer course we order gnocchi, scallop ceviche, and a trio of tartare, all 3 were very good. For the main course two of us had twin petite lobster tails over lobster risotto, perfect. The main dishes were beef filet and duck confit. Everything was cooked exactly as ordered and very well presented. I felt one of the best pre-fix menus I have ever had!
Union Park for New Year's Eve was 10/10 in all areas. The food was fabulous. Our server was friendly and knowledgeble. Each course was well paced and delicious.
We have dined at Union Park for several New Year's Eve celebrations and have enjoyed every one of them. My husband and I agree this one was the best. Thank you, Union Park! We look forward to dining with you in 2018
A perfect dining experience. Great food, impeccable service, nice ambiance. It was New Years Eve, so we half-expected to be rushed. The service was steady, but we never felt pressured.
The menu was prix-fixe, but the selections were varied and adventurous. We both started with a lobster bisque that was excellent, with little chunks of lobster in a tasty bisque. My wife had the bay scallops cerviche, which she usually shies away from--but truly enjoyed. My foie gras on almond bread was outstanding. Our entrees of lobster tails and duck, respectively, were both well-portioned and delightful. Desserts of Whiskey ganache and creme brulee were perfect ends to a great meal.
Again, service was friendly, professional and calm--which on a hectic evening is a high compliment in itself.
We were seated at a small,temporary table set in the middle of the room. The chairs were those banquet style stackable ones. By my side was placed an ice bucket on a stand that they were using to hold a pitcher of ice water. Every two minutes someone came by to grab the pitcher. My food was served with cold mashed potatoes & asparagus. It was returned to the kitchen to be reheated. I was then served a new plate of piping hot vegetables. It then was a delicious meal. The noise level was unexpectedly loud due to one table of 8.
my family and I went for Thanksgiving dinner and experienced a great time. Starting with the service which was exceptional and attentive. We all had the pre fixe meals including twin lobster tails which were succulent and tender, the lamb chops were done perfectly and served with a very tasty mustard sauce and lastly my Brother in law had the salmon over quinona, also very tasty. Our desserts, well it was Thanksgiving so all but me had the pumpkin pie, nice and creamy with a hint of cinnamon. For me the apple cobbler and vanilla ice cream hit the spot. We all left with full stomachs but not stuffed. In all another great experience . Keep up the good work John.
This was the second dinner we enjoyed at Union Park within a week's time; it was that good. As residents of Cape May we are fortunate to be able to dine at Union Park on a regular basis. The decor, ambiance, service ( our waiter was Ron, a real professional), food were all outstanding.
My husband and I took advantage of Union Park’s “restaurant week” pricing for the second weekend in a row. The menu selections were taken from the regular menu. They were plentiful and delicious. The room is elegantly decorated, lending itself to a romantic dinner. Our server, Lorie, was friendly and efficient. We are hoping to return before they close for the winter.
Positively perfect! My ribeye was the best I have ever eaten anywhere. My wife ate the short ribs and she designated that dish as the best she had ever eaten. My scallop appetizer was sensational! It was a bit like a spicy ceviche and was uniquely presented and tasted fantastic. My wife’s beet salad appetizer was incredible as well.
Add to that the attention of the best server around, Shirley, and you have the best dining experience imaginable.
We (party of 4) just returned to Union Park this past weekend for their “Restaurant Week” in November. They had a lovely menu. Items ordered to start were the crab bisque soup (delicious with a little kick) and Caesar salad. Entrees included poached lobster (so tender and yummy), short rib (done just right) and salmon (best salmon I have ever had). The menu included desserts as well. The fruit tart underwhelmed me but the chocolate desserts were good. Service was very good. We love this BYOB in Cape May.
The food was fantastic. We had Caesar salads to start, delicious. My fiancé had filet mignon, cooked perfectly with a great rub. I had the salmon which was moist and came with great sides. Both desserts were fantastic. Service was good. Overall, a great place for dinner.
The food is excellent: prepared with a deft hand and with creative twists. The service is very attentive and the dining room is nicely appointed. All-in-all an excellent meal, with one exception that was not the fault of the restaurant. Open Table made no mention that this restaurant is BYOB.
