Featuring New American Cuisine, our chef highlights fresh, seasonal, and local ingredients. Helping to feed the "Farmer to Chef" trend, local markets are key ingredients in our menu at the Hotel Tides.

The whimsical, intricately detailed tin ceiling and walls - dating back to the 1920's - demanded a ten month renovation, showcasing the cultural heritage and history in modern day Asbury Park.

Our second visit to this restaurant for celebration. The first was for my husband's birthday, the second, this time, was for our anniversary.

I'm shocked this place is not more visible for it's AMAZING food and service! Consistently great service. Lovely decor and the menu leaves no disappointment. I did not offer 5 stars on food this time around just because the short rib my husband ordered was a bit less "fall of the bone" than we expected. Not sure if it was quality of the meat or the meat temperature. My duck was tasty, I only wish the meal was a bit more hot to service.

We had the squash soup, bang bang shrimp as starters. 5 stars. The ricotta cheesecake was yummy, a little more firm textured than I expected, but great. The vanilla creme brulee...GET IT! Perfection. Carl was our server and he is just an awesome down to earth and graceful human.

The establishment is a jewel, beautifully appointed white table cloth high end experience. We tried Cave the night before and it was wonderful food, but the ambiance does not compete.

I say go for Tides!

Stacy the bartender set the mood with making a good cocktail and conversation. Nice Jazz was playing at a level that did not disrupt conversation. Dinner entrees were delicious - highly recommend the short ribs and the duck spring rolls for appetizer!

Carl ( our server) is very pleasant and did a great job. The food was tasty and adequately priced. We went off season since it was tough getting an Open Table reservation during summer.

I am so glad this is still a little bit of a neighborhood secret for dinner in the off season. The management and staff are very friendly, the food is fresh and the atmosphere warm - can not ask for more than that.
The Short Ribs are a must!

After reading a review for this restaurant in a local paper we were very anxious to give it a try. We checked the menu on their site and were pretty sure that we would have quite a few choices we might enjoy. After we were seated a very personable and competent waiter brought us the drink menu and the food menu. We both ordered house specialty cocktails which we really enjoyed. But then came the disappointing part. The menu was extremely limited with only 5 or 6 main courses although there were many more appetizers. The main course menu included maybe half of the items shown on the website. We asked the waiter if there were any nightly specials but he said there were none. So we both settled for short ribs which were very good but didn't have enough sauce. The appetizers were fine and the desserts were good. We found out later there was a new chef in charge so some of the more interesting main courses that we saw on their site were no longer available. A restaurant like this should not have such a limited menu!!

The restaurant is strange and not in a quirky sort of way. The decor makes little sense, not beautiful, rather dark, but not intimate. The waiter was very knowledgeable of the best things on the menu. Steered us to the short ribs, which were delicious. Otherwise a forgettable expensive experience. Not going back.

We loved our time at the Restaurant at the Hotel Tides. It's a hidden gem in Asbury Park.
The food, the service were top notch. My husband said the short ribs were the best he has EVER had. My halibut was delicious and the french onion appetizer was the best part of a french onion soup.
The ambiance was quirky and cool.

We went to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had a wonderful experience made only better by our server Chris. The food was spectacular. We dined on the mussels and the duck confit rolls appetizers and then the blue cheese and bacon encrusted strip steak and the angry fisherman’s stew for dinner. The flavors were outstanding. We had excellent drinks from the bar as well. We will be returning very soon.
