First night back in Cape May and we decided to give this new restaurant a try. The view from the porch area was spectacular, and the service was great. The food is pricey, but overall worth it. We ate the mosaic salad (pretty but just okay), the lobster Caesar salad (delicious!), and crab cocktail for starters. Our entrees were the Chilean Sea Bass special (the sea bass was wonderfully cooked but the pasta was so-so), the rib-eye (perfection!), and the pepper spaghetti (very disappointing--minimal to no lobster). We did not try dessert as nothing really interested us. Would we go back? Probably. In a city with some fantastic restaurants, this is not on the essential list yet, but we will more than likely try again in another year when they've had more time to hone their menu.

Thank Michael M

Only open a few weeks as M'Ocean and this restaurant is running like a place that has been going for a few years. Excellent, fresh, clean tasting, inventive food. Smooth and superb service. Fabulous atmosphere. Wait staff attentive. This is just what Cape May needed. We were blown away by the whole experience. Also, great cocktails and excellent wine list. If you can get a table on the porch that is ocean side, do so. The co-owner, Emir, is pouring his heart and soul into this place and it shows. Move over, 410 Bank Street and Ebbitt Room-- there's a new player in town and M'Ocean is playing for keeps. We can't wait to come back!

A welcomed addition to the restaurant scene in Cape May....Mosaic Salad was something special.

Nice raw bar and very fresh seafood entrees...Top notch service and one of our Best Food experiences in Cape May..

Give it a try and insure that you are the guest in your group.

On our last night in Cape May, friends joined us for dinner. I relied on trip advisor to help me find a restaurant. Reviews of M'Ocean seemed pretty favorable and it was in walking distance. The view of the beach was fantastic. Beer selection was uninspired. Menu was VERY short... And we had a guest with multiple food allergies. The waitress was very unsympathetic, the chef was unacommodating. Mosaic salad was worth it, swordfish was terrific, but the lobster pesto pasta was disgusting. Poorly prepared, drowning in sauce. My son could not eat it. The Caesar salad was almost inedible... Also over sauced.
So many other, better choice in Cape May. Skip this one.

Found M'Ocean by accident as it has recently taken over a space that also had a great reputation. Lucky for us! We were really looking for a place with a great bar and a view-- planning on eating appys and head on our way. We stayed way longer than planned as the cocktails were incredible (Marcello was a great bartender), the food delicious and really reasonably priced (clams on the half shell, a wonderful grilled watermelon- soaked in rum- salad, and the most OUTRAGEOUS burger ever!). Sat there chatting with an employee/patron for the night - Todd-, drinking and eating for hours. I wish the owners well- and am certain that before long this place will be packed full of patrons looking for a great meal and a great drink.
