Disappointed that Chef Ido is not associated with Mythoes. We have always been a Frescoes' Fan. Hopefully, when Pier 1 Is back in operation Mythoes will return to La Mer. Romaine was wilted. Not appetizing. Debatable if short ribs were braised for most of the...More

It is now Mythoes and has a very good menu. I had the octopus for an appetizer and the Bronzino for the main course. I would have given 5 stars but the do not debone the Bronzino when served. A top notched restaurant would have...More

This is the second time we've dined here since the change of chef & management. They finally changed the name to reflect the new cuisine: it's now called Mythoes (no longer called Fresco's). Honestly, my wife and I enjoy Italian food more than Greek food,...More

When we inquired we were told it was Pier House's menu with a few Fresco's dishes added. If you go looking for your favorites (3 sauces for calameri, PH Balance,fried lobster tail, crab cake, lamb chops,sea bass) you will be disappointed...as were we. The calameri...More

Our favorite place to eat in Cape May for many years. On our last visit we find that they changed management and the menu. Went from fine dinning to poor dinner food. Food was bland and unappealing. Could have gotten better food on the boardwalk....More

Frescos is under new management, and it's a decided improvement. The new Frescos is Mediterranean, and the chef has fresh new ideas. My Caesar salad was the best on the planet, and my chicken pasta main course had just the right amount of spice in...More

Frescos has a large menu with both seafood and meat options. The service was excellent and they split our shared salad order in the kitchen, which was nice. The watermelon with feta salad was very good and easily large enough for two to share. Both...More

Service is vital to all business success,..without an attentive server...a good customer could be Turned off forever. We dined at Fresco's twice this past week...the food was well presented and the majority of the entrees were good. We did not have a good experience with...More

The dining room is relaxed enough for the beach yet elegant enough to be a break from beachy. The bronzino was perfectly presented; I appreciated being given the choice of having the head and tail removed-or not. My husband enjoyed his pork dish, though he...More

In the heart of the Historic District, Frescos occupies an 1880 Victorian cottage. On the candlelit veranda, or in the coolness of the Mediteranean inspired dining rooms, you imagine yourself at a small trattoria in Tuscany, or sampling the finest of local seafood at a Mediterranean cafe. From the seafood and homemade pastas of the South to the elegant sauces, meats, and veal of the North, Frescos is a culinary adventure tour of Italy. Frescos' award-winning young Chef Joseph Badger takes as his palette the incredible variety of fresh local seafood, and bountiful local produce, bringing a richness and creativity to the menu-- a dazzling display of shrimp, lobster, seafoods and pastas, and desserts that make guests exclaim with delight. One of ZAGAT'S "Top Italian Restaurants in America," and Voted "Best Italian Restaurant in Southern New Jersey 2012," by NJ Monthly.
