The Blue Rose Inn and Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

WOW and OMG are the only way to describe such an incredible dinner Feb. 17, 2017! The service was incredible and the food was so good it is indescribable. Maybe we lucked out as it is the off season and it wasn't a crowded night, or maybe this place is a hidden gem and I should keep it a secret! BYOB so bring a bottle of nice wine from any of the local wineries. (anything from Hawk Haven is my favorite) For beer, try Cape May Brewery and pick up a few bottles. I started with sea scallops as a first course and they were so tender and cooked to perfection. Seared Char for a main course and the fish was fresh and delicious. My wife started with poached pear salad and then had the main course chicken. By far the best fine dining meal we have had in Cape May. Pear tarts for dessert for both of us with nice pressed coffee and hot tea selections. My personal thanks to our server, the kitchen and the entire team. You are doing a great job. Thank you so much for creating such a memorable night for my wife and I!
Perfection Early searing dinner offering ...
Early searing dinner offerings included full-size portions of bread basket, mussels in tasty broth (appetizer), roasted pork pappardelle (entree), and pear tart (dessert). Lots more to choose from. Be sure to get the French press coffee, featuring coffee from the local roaster. Even decaf, the flavor was bold and divine!

On entering restaurant we were seated near a beautiful stain glass window. We were at a table for 4 and it was just the 2 of us. Plenty of room. The pear salad with endive and walnuts was fresh and light. Thoroughly enjoyable. My main course was pasta Agnolotti which was cooked aldente and contained a sweet potato filling that was perfect. We ordered a Chardonnay that was from a local Cape May winery which was superb. We ended with a tasty trio of donuts with a small ball of coffee ice cream and 2 espressos. Service was excellent and everyone was very attentive. The owner came over and asked how everything was and showed a sincere interest in what we had to say. Will definitely go back again.

Caught them for their last night before closing till mid February. The fixed price 5 course fare was a real deal. One might have thought we'd be served leftovers. Au contraire, the scallops were fabulous as an appetizer, the beef was impeccable, and the service was splendid. We've tried almost all the restaurants in Cape May, but had somehow overlooked this. We certainly won't this spring and summer.

Our go-to restaurant in Cape may for special occasions, and fine dining. Creative foodie menu, small plates, attentive staff, in a Victorian B & B. Can get a little loud at peak times, which means the atmosphere works best for a small group of 2-4, so you can hear each other. BYO, except they do sell local Hawks Haven wines, which are fairly good. Highly recommended!!

The food was outstanding. The service was excellent. That experience has been consistent each of the several times we have dined here. We have enjoyed dinner at several of the fine dinning restaurants in Cape May and would rank this one among the top few. Don't be fooled by is understated ambience it is a must when visiting Cape May.

Our second visit to the Blue Rose did not disappoint. Intriguing menu, cozy atmosphere warm and friendly service fantastic food. Since our first visit I had been planning my wine selection with the menu selections I remembered from our first visit. I settled on a Casanova Di Neri 2004
and it was perfect, one of my best bottles for one terrific meal, we had a great Time. See you on our next visit to Cape May

Christmas Eve dining was lovely. The professionalism and attitude of the staff made the meal smooth and effortless. The food was beautifully presented and gloriously delicious. So thank you to all for a memorable evening.

We went for my mother's birthday to experience high end cuisine and were not disappointed. Everything from the moment we arrived to when we left was wonderful. The wait staff were kind, very helpful, able to answer our questions completely and provided us with excellent recommendations. I put into the reservations that it was my mother's birthday and the staff all wished her a good birthday and even brought out her dessert with a candle in it. They didn't sing (thankfully! not a huge fan of restaurant singing for birthdays as it is) but even the host who sat us wished her well. In addition to the excellent food, she had a wonderful time. We will be going back for my 30th birthday next year!

The Blue Rose Inn was a delightful dining experience. The waitstaff was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The menu was interesting, varied, and the food was high-quality and delicious. It seemed that a lot of care was put into the ingredients and preparation. There were many enticing options, which made it difficult to choose. The duck ravioli appetizer was wonderful and my husband's chicken with root vegetables was one of the most moist and tender he's ever had. The restaurant itself lives up to it's name; many "blue" touches, from lighting to artwork to water glasses. Dimmer lighting, however, would enhance the overall ambience, which is nice. It is a restaurant that we would eagerly return to.

We have eaten at the Blue Rose Inn Restaurant several times and have enjoyed each and every time. The food is fabulous as is the environment and everyone who works at the Blue Rose Inn. We always make sure we come here for a dinner every time we travel to Cape May.

Very nice people in every job. Waitress was very knowledgeable of each dish. The menu was a little confusing but waitress gave us very good explanations. Food: very good to excellent. The room is a nice quiet room as well. We will definitely keep it on our list for Cape May restaurants.

Enjoyable dinner. Our evening at the Blue Rose was very nice. We each had two courses and dessert. The food was excellent and the service was good too. I would definitely go back and guests should know to bring their own wine.

As usual, very satisfied. Loved everything. 5 of us each got a different entre and all loved it. Spot on. Only small complaint is our server did not make much suggestion or enlighten us on the menu choices but another came over and gave us a full description of how each was prepared, that was do helpful.

Again this was a very delightful dinner. We are always impressed with dinner and it was delicious too. The head chef comes out to greet and make sure everyone is ok and everything was delicious. Our waiter was very good and others came to greet us too because we have been back so many times. We love this place number one for us!!!!!!

The food was amazing. They have an early evening prefix, but we ordered from the menu. Some of the best we have had in Cape May. There are two small dining rooms (the restaurant is in the first floor of an old Victorian B & B), and we dinned in the smaller one right off the entry lobby. This room's decor is a little more contemporary, while the other dining room is more Victorian with lace curtains.
The restaurant can become noisy when at full capacity, but the food is well worth the minor annoyance.
This is our go-to restaurant for special occasions. BYO, but they serve Hawk Haven wines, a local winery.

Food was very good. Ordered Long Island Duck Confit & Sunchoke Ravioli; Roasted Pork Pappardelle Coffee & Cocoa Crusted Teres Major Steak; Scottish Salmon; Bell & Evans Chicken Roulade. Staff were extremely friendly, courteous, and attentive. Steak was a little tough but the experience overall was very nice.

Great service, although it was off season and lovely atmosphere. We enjoyed our meals and wine (BYOB) and never felt rushed. If you eat a lot of meat, there's lots to choose from. Their signature dish, scallops was delicious, but had sausage in the risotto. It was the only seafood dish. Not much for vegetarians, unfortunately. We may go back if they offer more seafood without meat included in the dish.

Our first Visit to the Blue Rose, it was fantastic. Quiet, relaxed and comfortable even with a full house. We wanted everything on the menu, and the dishes we decided on were out of this world good. Our server was knowledgeable, attentive, an professional. I already have some fantastic bottles picked for our next visit, this is certainly a BYOB deserving of the best in your cellar.

Lovely! Food and service where outstanding. The restaurant is housed in a historic Cape May feel type of home... The menu offered so many varied and tasty sounding dishes, we are already talking about going back. We have owned a summer home in CM for 18 years; the Blue Rose Inn Restuarant is now at the top of our list.
