    The seafood laden menu is a delight to the palate. Fresh and bright with flavor combinations that will tantalize the senses. Meat lovers are well represented so there is something for everyone at 32 East. Just save room for the homemade desserts. Amazing!

    Our server, Michael, made the experience over the top!! As a "foodie" I usually rely on an experienced server to make suggestions. His recommendations were spot on! Perfect! What a delicious meal! The swordfish was delicious, the preparation probably the best I've had, and the sauce--oh, the sauce! I've been tasting that sauce in my dreams! Not enough space to enumerate the choices of the rest of our party. Exceptional! Thanks Michael!

  • Bartender rocked, food disappointed
    HFXXVIP
    Dined on 11/3/2014
    Our bartender was friendly and rose to the challenge of meeting an obscure drink request -- and he made experimenting with a couple of substitutions a fun experience for him and us. Wait staff were good. The food was interesting, but the mixing of flavors/textures was all wrong. Porcino-wrapped bartlett pears were a disappointment -- the pears were flavorless and the porcino was greasy, though the cheese underneath was lovely. By comparison, the ham was the best part of the "pizza," whose cheese smelled like feet and tasted worse. The best dish was the most conventional, a hanger steak with potatoes - delicious. This restaurant is great for experimenting, particularly since they change the menu every day, but the results are mixed at best.

    We dine at 32 frequently. Our food was excellent as always. Unfortunately, our waiter was inattentive throughout our meal which interfered with the pacing of our courses, wait time between courses (too fast, too slow). We had to pour our own wine.

    Never to disappoint, 32 East is and always has been a neighborhood GEM!!!! If you're visiting from out-of-town, this is the best restaurant on Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach. With the holidays around the corner, you are right across the street from where the action is. Start your night off with a Yummy meal; walk around and enjoy the beautifully lit street and return to their bar to top off your evening. 32 East is a very special place to dine.

    This mainstay of Delray Beach continues to be the best restaurant on the very restaurant heavy Atlantic Ave. The menu changes daily based on the availability of ingredients for the chefs selection. Seafood is so flavorful and the ability to blend flavors of entrees, vegetables makes for the best meals. Can be a bit pricy, but when we want to ensure a memorable celebration, then 32 East is our go to restaurant.

    Always excellent fish dishes and great desserts. Lovely atmosphere and good service. The only disappointment was the buffalo mozzarella appetizer which just wasn't up to par. The mozzarella wasn't flavorful and the accompaniments didn't seem to go. For $17.00, it really wasn't worth it. Otherwise a very nice evening.

    Poor service. Asked for bread twice before we received it and our appetizers had already been served. Also overheard our waiter Jude tell another table about additional specials not on the menu, including a filet mignon that he did not communicate to us. Food is good but portions are small and expensive but that's what you get on Atlantic Avenue. My scallop entree was disappointing. Some of the scallops were very large and tough.

    We booked our table in advance and we had to wait over 45 minutes to finally get seated. Once we were seated, our server told us that the menu was changed daily, and offered the filet, as he pointed to the menu, making it sound as if it was the steak printed there. When we received the bill, it was more expensive than the steak we had expected to get. It turned out that this item was not listed and it was one of the specials which was not printed. I don't mind spending extra on my food if it is excellent, and if I know what I will be paying in advance. The food ended up being mediocre.

    I made dinner reservations in special occasion for my mom's 49th birthday party. I loved that they made special accommodations in regards to such a special day for my mom and had "Happy birthday!!!" at the top of our menus. Also, my boyfriend John works in the kitchen and is an expeditor so I already had high expectations and excitement to try Chef Nick's menu. I was blown away by the 10-course meal we were all presented with! Every plate was fantastic and beautiful to a T! It has become my mom's favorite restaurant now. Bravo to every employee and the entire cooking staff and especially to Chef Nick!

    Every time we go to 32 East I always know we will have a great meal. The scallops are divine, each preparation is a new favorite since the menu changes daily. Chef Nick Morfogen is truly a local gem. We always hope he is cooking, amazing things always come from his kitchen. Never trying too hard, the combinations are perfection on a plate. Atlantic Avenue has some wonderful new restaurants, but 32 East will always be in the top as long as Chef Morfogen is there.
