Food is great and the bar is fabulous! Although this is a hotel restaurant/bar, most diners come here as a destination.

We had the good fortune to have dinner this past Saturday at the Ebbitt Room and were enormously pleased our experience. It was a busy weekend in Cape May with all the Christmas festivities so the restaurant was completely booked and crowded. However, the service remained attentive and gracious. The inn and restaurant were beautifully decked out for the holiday... More

The ambience of the Ebbitt Room is great for a cozy dinner, as I visited on a chilly November evening. There was a roaring fire in the adjacent sitting room, and the bar was also very warm and inviting. If you're staying in the hotel, you don't even have to leave to get to the dining area. Our food was... More

The ultimate dining experience in Cape May. Farm to table is the theme and no other place does it better. Steak or seafood are always good choices.

Did not live up to the recommendations - pretty good food but lackluster service. Our table was located so close to another one - the waiters butt was in our face while he served the table next to us, which was often. He seemed to know that couple, so we were having dinner with someone standing with our back to... More

My husband and I love Cape May and especially all of the Cape Resorts properties and restaurants. We are fortunate to live close enough to visit often. This was our first time having dinner at the Ebbitt Room. It was our anniversary and the atmosphere was quite romantic. Service was excellent and the food was phenomenal. The cuisine was varied...

That's Petite Filet Mignon and Lump Crab Cake a family favorite. The appetizers are excellent, love both oysters on half shell and Rockefeller, as well as the tuna tartar. They make a great strip steak as well as a equally tender pork chop. Try sweet ricotta doughnuts with cinnamon sugar for dessert. I do miss Steve though great way to... More

My friend and I had an extremely pleasant dining experience at Ebbitt's Room in Virginia Hotel. It began with having drinks in a very attractive comfortable bar setting. Great place for a drink and quiet conversation. Our server was over the top friendly and offered great menu suggestions. Dining atmosphere quaint, old in a good way, romantic. Food was outstanding,... More
