We cant say enough wonderful things about our meal!! With each course, it just got better and better. We couldn't even choose our favorite....Candace our server was also a sweetheart. Very knowledgeable and she also made the experience fun. Already looking forward next year!! We also stayed at the Hugh, which was also amazing. Owners were so lovely and accommodating....and that bed!! Just heaven. Our new favorite place in Cape May!!

Dinner at Jardin was fantastic! Our party of 6 was completely mesmerized by the flow, presentation, creativity and, above all, the taste of the meal. It will be a special memory for all of us. We definitely plan to return.

This was a fantastic experience from beginning to end. Foams, jellies, powders....all made from veggies. It was such a creative menu. And for you meat and seafood lovers, there was duck and scallops.....both cooked perfectly!!! From Candace, our hostess to Cera, our server, to Chef Michael.....outstanding job!!!! This was the perfect way to celebrate our anniversary!!!

We had a fabulous experience. Each course was delicious, the setting is beautiful and the service was great. Since there is only one seating it might be better at 7. Otherwise outstanding.

We loved everything! It was lovely being greeted on the porch and relaxing there for a bit, and our server showed us the new decor since we had been to Blue Rose. The food experience was outstanding. Professional yet friendly service,and we loved meeting chef. Would come back again and recommend to others.

very creative cuisine with innovative ingredients. Ingredients combination works very well but will benefit of being served hot - our main courses and the soup were barely warm
