    The waiter, Eddie, was very friendly and attentive. The portions are small for the prices charged. By 8 o'clock it became noisy that you couldn't have a conversation. This is a weekday; forget the weekend.

    Just got back from up north and ran to 32 east. Had the perfect meal with real Blue Fin Tuna prepared perfectly. Went with friends who had not eaten here and they left saying it was going on their regular list. Try it you'll love it. Menu changes often so you never get bored eating the same things.

    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.

Their hostesses Dhalia and Julie; Chef Nick and the entire staff make it an experience we want to enjoy on a weekly basis. I highly recommend 32 East to anyone looking for a memorable evening. Thank you for always making it one for us.

    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.

    Went there during the week for my anniversary with my wife. They printed Happy Anniversary on the menu which I thought was a nice touch. Menu changes daily. Wine list was excellent but a little pricey but what the heck it was a special occasion. Waiter was entertaining and helpful but not quite as attentive as maybe he should have been considering the place was not very full. Didn't come over and check on us after we received our food. Food was very good and well presented. If your looking for a nice high-end restaurant I would recommend 32 East.

    The food and service was very good. The noise from the motorcycles and hot cars was too much. The evening was hot and there was no breeze. Truly uncomfortable outside dining. A Car pulled up; an AC Cobra with virtually no muffler. The parking fellows left it running for ten minutes while they took pictures and finally figured out how to get into the car and drive it away. Could not hear yourself think.

    We were a group of 4 and each got something different. The food was well portioned and tasted as good as it looked and smelled. The all important service was constant and pleasant. It was a bit loud, but that was not an issue. It was a bit expensive, so I would definitely reserve this one for special occasions. This is one to remember and come again.
