The Blue Rose Inn and Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
The food was phenomenal, and the setting was beautiful. The rooms can be loud, and because of seating you may overhear other diners. THERE IS NO PARKING, and the hostesses were unhelpful in offering information. Arrive early to find parking. Bring your own wine!!!
The entire dining experience was wonderful. The hostess, bus boy and our server, Michael were pleasant and professional. The cheff's ability to combine flavors, textures and fresh local ingredients was amazing. The soft shell crab appetizer was beautiful as the soft egg yolk broke to cover the rye scrapple. My entree was albacore tuna with squid ink ramen that was amazing. My husband had the sunchoke and duck confit ravioli followed by the cobia. We finished with the chocolate soufflé. BYOB was appreciated. We'll be back.
My husband and I have had dinner at the Blue Rose everytime we come to Cape May for about four years. Love the ambience, decor, location, excellent service and many good dishes. The menu options seemed a bit different this year, and there was less on the menu of interest to me. My husband liked his choice, very well, but I would not recommend the Char - I didn't care for the taste, and although I ordered it to be served medium, it came to the table lukewarm and undercooked in my opinion. Had to be returned and reheated, but didn't improve the flavor. Our server was excellent, and they did give me a dessert for no charge, but I was dissapointed in the menu selection in general. Lovely atmosphere for indoors or outside on the porch for dinner!
An awesome dining experience! My son and daughter-in-law had a fabulous meal in July with a group of friends. It was their top pick of the Cape May choices, so we had a very special night out. The service was superb! Everyone attentive and eager to please. The food, without question, is of the best at Cape May- which speaks for itself! Treat yourself to a special night out.
Is it possible to combine elegance and fun - Yes - one answer is "The Blue Rose."
My wife is fond of the expression "a party in your mouth" - several of the dishes we enjoyed at The Blue Rose definitely deserve this accolade. The menu is creative and interesting and skirts being too much - too many flavors - but falls on the right side to the delight of one's palette.
I'm a vegetarian, which means no fish, and there is much on this menu that falls out of what I eat - but no matter, there is enough that does.
The service is another expression of their unique ability to combine true elegance with insouciant fun. What more could one ask in a beach town. Our second visit here - we first visited last year, was one of the highlights of our annual extended weekend in Cape May. The Blue Rose now emerges as our favorite restaurant in the best of all beach towns where excellent dining is not hard to find. Kudos Blue Rose - we look forward to next year!
Great location on Washington Street just beyond the pedestrian mall. Located in a Classic Victorian Inn. Talented chef presents delicious dishes that will please your palette. Attentive, informative and courteous staff will take care of your every need while you are there. We can't wait to return. Highly recommended.
The Blue Rose is a wonderful food experience. The chef is very passionate about presentation, taste and creativity. This is the best food I have eaten in any restaurant EVER! The wait staff is knowledgeable and able to speak on every dish. The atmosphere is pretty and takes you back in time. This is my favorite place in Cape May.
I have spent many nights in Cape May and have dined everywhere that is worthwhile...more than once. Blue rose is my new number one. The flavors this chef coaxed out of his beautifully presented dishes were absolutely as good and better as I have had anywhere in the world I know that is a lot to say but seriously, you have to taste the multiple layers of flavors so wonderfully done to believe it. I would book another weekend in Cape May this year just to eat there again.
Our bday celebration dinner was absolutely amazing!!! From the moment you walk in you realize it's going to be a special meal experience. We were fortunate enough to have John as our waiter. He goes above & beyond as a waiter. He explains each dish in such detail that we were mesmerized. The meal started out with delicious bread & just got better with each course. Highly recommend this restaurant you will not be disappointed!!!
Very unique and delicious food. Presentation was beautiful. Service was great, the waitress was very knowledgeable and explained the dishes and made excellent recommendations. This was our second time here and it was great the first time and it didn't disappoint the second time either. One of our favorite restaurants in Cape May!
Blue Rose is unique in its presentation and its service. The food was exquisite and the wait staff unbelievable. We have dined there twice, for special occasions and so enjoy every aspect of our visit. John the head waiter is a pearl unto himself. He knew the chef's way with the preparation as well as being a very colorful figure. We highly recommend the Blue Rose at any time.
Very unique dishes due the blending of flavors. We started with the duck confit ravioli,then the cobia and the char. Finished with a dessert that had my name on it....Coconut and white chocolate creme brûlée....best ever. Outstanding service by John completed one our best meals ever. We shall return!
This restaurant has all the charm Cape May has to offer. If you get there a little early you sit on some rocking chairs on the front porch which for my girlfriend and i was a relaxing and wonderful experience. The wait staff was knowledgeable, kind, and good at what they do. Everything we had to eat was amazing. My girlfriend is a vegetarian and she was also very pleased with her choices. Last but not least do not skip the dessert. Both the souffle and the donuts were just so darn delicious. Definitely not a wasted experience we will be going again.
Best food in Cape May. We have been to other recommended restaurants in Cape May, but none come close. Never disappoints. Creative eclectic menu. The grilled scallops over Gorgonzola grits was heaven. Very attentive, friendly staff. If weather permits, dine on the porch. It is on a quiet street, so noise is not an issue. The quiet jazz playing just adds to the ambiance. Can't wait to return. We stayed at the inn, so we had breakfast as well. Just as amazing. Chef Angela even came out to chat with the guests.
This was our 2nd visit to The Blue Rose Restaurant. Having had an exceptional meal and service last summer we were looking forward to a return visit this year. Unfortunately, it fell short of our expectations. The food was good as was the service. However, after dining at a few other restaurants of like caliper- The Blue Rose was over priced. It also did not help matters that we heard other tables being offered a special dessert that required a 25 minute lead time, and were never even asked if we were interested in this dessert. I am sure it was an oversight on the part of our waitress but a disappointment.
