The Blue Rose Inn and Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

Have been here twice now and loved it both times. It's in a beautiful house, very comfortable and welcoming. The service was friendly,vefficient and helpful. They seem to take pride in their restaurant and their work. The food was creative (but not too unusual), fresh and absolutely delicious. Even the bread is creative, with oil, cheers, and herbs in the center. Their homemade ice cream had creative delicious flavored, like honey thyme, strawberry basil sorbet, and best of all ginger peach sorbet. It is a BYO, so that helps keep the price reasonable. (I think they do sell bottles of a local wine, so if you forget wine, you are not out of luck).
Loved our dinners at the Blue Rose, can't wait to go back to Cape May and return!

Went to Blue Rose for Sunday brunch with a family of 4. Sat out on their side porch, which was lovely. The food was very good and creative overall and they clearly take love and care with the menu. My only complaint is that the french toast very dense and heavy. Please don't go here if you have less than a few hours to pass! We were there for over 2 hours and while the servers were very attentive, this just felt like too drawn out. I would also say that it's not a place for young kids (which I should have researched in advance). While everyone was friendly and welcoming to our 6 and 8 year old, it wasn't a family kind of place. The waiter filled the very tall and delicate wine glasses very full of water for my kids (a disaster waiting to happen!) and the sorbet, which they both ordered, was flavored with a very strong Riesling. I may return, but without the kids, and maybe for a long leisurely lunch with friends.

The food at The Blue Rose ranks among the best in Cape May. It does not get the attention this restaurant deserves. The appetizer of duck confit and sunchoke ravioli is worth getting a double order of for dinner. The décor is very Victorian but the food is very creative and modern.
Bring good wine it is worth it.

Food was innovative, original and delicious. Presentation was beautiful. One of the best fine dining experiences in Cape May. They only serve wine from a local vineyard - which is very good. You can bring your own bottle if you want and they will open it for you. Well worth checking out.

Visited for dinner on a Thursday evening to celebrate a wedding anniversary while on vacation. We decided to try this place based on reviews. We had tried many of the other Cape May fine dinning places so based on reviews and online - we were expecting a similar experience as to the other places in the area. While Blue Rose is good it just doesn't compare to the other fine dinning places in Cape May. There is no valet parking so it took us over 15 minutes to fine a spot. This is a BYOB so we brought wine and while our wives were waiting for us to fine a spot they asked if they would take the wine and bring it to our table; which is something many of the fine dinning places in the area (and most areas) will do - but they said "no". The appetizers were ok with half the party liking them and the other half not liking their choices at all. The food is good and nicely prepared. The service and overall experience is what it lacks. If you never visiting the other top places in Cape May I would say this was a good place but I don't see the reason to visit this restaurant again - especially when Washington Inn is just right down the street and consistently hits high on all marks.

Awesome from start to finish. The summer gazpacho was a unique surprise of flavors and was tremendous. The scallops were fantastic especially because of the bed of risotto they were served on. The ricotta donuts for dessert as usual were fabulous. To top it all off, our server, Michael, was his usual cut above excellent.

We love the Blue Rose and it is so elegant and the food is delicious. We try to go once a month when we are down here for the summer.We recommended this place to our friends and they loved it too. So it is a special place for us and we love going and the service is outstanding too. Keep up the good work Blue Rose!!!!!!

The food at Blue Rose Inn is truly spectacular. Every dish was a delight. Our waiter John was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The only disappointment was that there was simply no ventilation in the dining room. It was a nice night in Cape May with a strong sea breeze. But they did not open the windows. As the room got hotter and stuffier, all I wanted to do was escape to get some air. Otherwise, a perfect restaurant experience.

I specifically told staff it was our 35th Anniversary and they seated us in a corner and although they had empty tables they put another family of four sitting very close to us. Kind of ruined the Romantic dinner we were hoping for. Food was ok. Staff seemed nice. I would have liked to have a salad with my meal none was offered on the menu. My husband did love the scallops though. Feeling Blue At The Blue Rose.

Outstanding food and great service. The ambiance was perfect for a relaxing, enjoyable meal. My wife had the pork pappardelle which was delectable, great texture and flavor. I had the scallops (cooked to perfection) over an incredible pea risotto. The lemon ricotta doughnuts are not to be missed.

Almost everything we had to eat was very good. The scallops were superb! Maybe the best I have ever had! None of us really cared for the rub on the steak but I suppose that is a matter of personal preference and it was cooked just right. (Rare equals rare, etc). And they did give us the option to have the steak without the rub. The service was attentive and the room we were in was very pretty.
The best restaurant in Cape May. Unlike ...
The best restaurant in Cape May. Unlike the Red Store which push in too many people so that meals are served cold, staff is rushed...the Blue Rose limits people per given time so that each meal is prepared separately and served just right. Staff has time to be attentive. The entire experience is worth it. Be back next year.

It was our third year in a row that we dined at the Blue Rose. What a great place and John our waiter what a fantastic , knowledgeable person to have as your waiter. You can tell he loves what he's doing. The way he describes the menu is very impressive. The chef at the Blue Rose is a very creative and innovative person. For the appetizer I had the Duck Confit Raviolis. What and awesome appetizer. Presentation was beautiful. Someone else ad the Burrata and tomatoes, which was so lite and refreshing. For dinner two people had the Thai Bouillabaisse, which was off the charts. So much complexity in this meal with so many flavors. What a wonderful entree. Desserts were so good! The Semi-Fredo as the bomb and the doughnut dessert was to die for. Cappuccino was great and again John our waiter is the best! I would definitely recommend the Blue Rose to anyone who wants a great time with both food and service. The price per-person was $64 which included a 20 percent tip.

Returning to have dinner at the Blue Rose Inn Restaurant is a highlight of our stay in Cape May. The hostesses, waiters, and waitresses are so kind and caring. The food presentation is wonderful and the taste of any foods that we have had is truly amazing from the appetizers, salads to the main course and desserts. We thoroughly enjoy our dining experience at the Blue Rose Inn Restaurant.

Wonderful outdoor dinner with husband and my sister visiting from out of town. We eat here fairly regularly, and the menu has some tasty standards and seasonal additions- I had soft shell crabs for the second time this season. They are usually an appetizer but I got a double portion entree, as I love the pork belly and homemade jam accompaniments. The porch is a wonderful place to people-watch and usually has a nice breeze even in hot weather. The victorian ambience is great and we also love watching the decorated horse and buggy teams riding by. Service was excellent as always! Definitely worth visiting if you come to Cape May!

My date's dinner was excellent but my selection was extremely disappointing. The waiter saw that I didn't eat my meal & asked 'if I enjoyed it'. I said I was disappointed & his only response was that ... He would give the feedback to the chef. I left & was still hungry!!!
I will not go back. The chef should have come out to talk to me. It was not busy for a Friday nite. Only four tables.

One of the best meals I have had in a very long time. My friends agreed! The meals were so unique and flavorful. An unexpected pleasure for sure. I can not wait to come back and share this delicious experience with family and friends! We forgot our byob and ordered the Hawk Valley Chardonnay. We were also pleasantly surprised by the wine selection. The Chardonnay was quite good!

We have been eating in Cape May for many years and have a list of restaurants that we look forward to returning to regularly. The Blue Rose will now be added to that list. This was our first meal there and it was excellent. My wife had the Mussels as an appetizer, large and very tender,
and the soft shell crab for her main course. She said it was the most interesting presentation of soft shell she has ever had, and this from a woman who loves them. They were delicious. I had the house made burrata for an appetizer and the coffee and cocoa crusted teres major for an entrée. It was very tender beef served with excellent creamed spinach and chimichurri. We will definitely be going back again.
