The restaurant food is excellent but the waitress in the bar area needs to learn how to treat customers! We experienced her rudeness not only once but twice!

Every time I go to cape may I must have at least one dinner here. Food, drinks, atmosphere all first class. Piano player is awesome on Saturday nights and staff is awesome as well.

I took my partner to the Ebbitt Room as we have always wanted to try it as we have heard many good things about it.

The Ebbitt Room is located in the Virginia Hotel, just off the Washington Street Mall on a quiet street.

We started out at the bar and we were immediately treated like a friend by the bartender who has been there for many years. Our drinks were professional prepared and served to us and he chatted with us until our table was ready.

The receptionist was very friendly and offered us a choice of table in the dining room. The Ebbitt Room is a warm and inviting restaurant, but it is a little cramped. Our server was friendly, but he seemed to forget about us and we sat for extended periods of time waiting for our courses.

The menu selections were limited and normally I don't have any problems finding something I like, but I struggled with this menu.

The food was good, but not great and I would be willing to give it another try. I think my expectations may have been a little too high based on reviews by others. Prices seemed high for what we got. We like the Washington Inn better.

Stopped in on a Tuesday to see what all of the hype was about. We were not disappointed. Although the piano music is only from Thursday to Sunday, we took a seat at the bar and had Dom expertly prepare a Basil Lemon drop Martini for me and a bourbon for my husband. Excellent! Then we went to the table and had Lobster Caesar Salad, Pork Chop and Barramundi which is a sea bass. All were done to perfection-the only comment I can make for improvement is the waiter's accent. When he was informing us of the specials, we didn't understand a word he said. I think I heard Grouper with Coconut but who can say? Go anyway and treat yourself.

My husband and I wanted a quiet and relaxing bite to eat so we made a quick reservation on open table and in 30 min. We were seated. The meals were the perfect size and the service was great. Helen, the bartender was super cute and friendly and good at her drinks! My husband and I had a great time. We will return soon!
