Restaurant Review

Located on the Washington Street Pedestrian Mall, Tisha's is a BYOB offering a fine dining menu of creative New American- Italian influenced seafood, meats, and pasta dishes.

The decor is contemporary beach town with a variety seascape photos adorning the walls with wooden floors and tables set with linen napkins

Owners and Chef Paul Negro with wife Jennifer serves a seasonally changing menu with fresh, creatively prepared dishes.

The breakfast menu has an excellent variety of omelets, egg specialties, and pancakes. Their lunch menu has a good variety of salads, soups, burgers, and gourmet sandwiches.

With so many excellent fine dining restaurants in Cape May, Tisha's is barely a notch above the others.

While overall they serve well prepared seafood dishes, the preparations tend to be inconsistent, especially during the busy summer dining hours.

The service is friendly and attentive.

Outdoor dining is available on the pedestrian mall.

Not recommended for kids

Tisha's is open year round with seasonal hours. The Summer hours are:

Breakfast (7:00am - 11:30am), Lunch (11:30am - 3:00pm), and Dinner (5:00pm - 10:00pm).

How Do We Review (analyze) Restaurants?

New Jersey Leisure Guide strives to provide objective restaurant reviews .

The methodology used is research, analysis driven --- as opposed to that of a single restaurant critic or a viewer comment posting board.

Data is gathered from our viewers e-mail restaurant comments, Internet research, and professional restaurant critics. The data is sorted, (weeding out the obvious biased, "bone to pick",  and out of consensus comments), analyzed, and the review is created.
