    My wife and I have eaten at 50 Ocean at least 20 times, never again. When we arrived, on time, for our reservation we were told that we had to sit outside, which we tried, but the music next door was deafening. We asked to be say indoors, and there were tables available, but we were told that they were reserved. I mentioned that we had a reservation, but the hostess told me that it was my fault that I didn't specify "Indoors". I asked to speak to the Manager who said "it's Saturday, we are very busy. You can take the outdoor table, or leave it." We left and will never return.

    3 scallops on a plate for over $30 is too much. There are other fished to do that are better priced. If you sit outside upstairs bear in mind you will have smokers from the upstairs bar and from sandbar downstairs.

    We had a lovely table at the window where we could watch the "goings on" on Ocean Ave. and have a great view of the beach and ocean. The food and the service was perfect. My husband said that his grouper dish was the best he has had. The only negative to the evening was the noise level. We were bombarded with the loud voices from the other end of the dining room, it was quite unpleasant.

    The waitress was very personable, attentive and helped make the evening. I would saw the food was somewhat eclectic tasty and presented very well. My only objection is the $5,00 valet charge to park. A restaurant of this caliber and pricing should have free valet parking.

    We went to 50 Ocean to celebrate a special occasion and we were not disappointed. The view was fantastic! We had a window table with a fabulous, unobstructed view of the ocean. Our server was very knowledgeable of the entrees, gave us a brief description of most of them, and even suggested some of his favorites. When he was unfamiliar with our inquiry on the wine list, he brought us a sample to guide our decision. The food was nothing short of spectacular! From the sushi tuna appetizer, to the scallops, to the steaks, everyone at our table could not stop raving about the presentation, the accompaniments, and of course, the taste. We will definitely be back, in hopes of repeating this wonderful experience.

    This is the second time I have been to this restaurant. Each time has been a real treat. I love coming here. I had the Grouper and it was cooked to perfection. My date had the swordfish which was also cooked very well. Very quiet and romantic atmosphere. When Im in the area its the only place I want to go to.

    The beach view is great. The minute you sit down you feel as if you are on vacation. The ambiance is sophisticated beach and the vibe is upscale but laid back. The food is fun and delicious. The service is attentive but not intrusive. Highly recommend. I took my friend to lunch for her birthday. We had a great time sharing tuna tartare in a jar, ceviche and steak salad. All of the dishes were presented in an artful and fun way. The flavors were yummy and distinctive. The size of the dishes were perfect for sharing. The service was excellent. The entire experience was relaxing and fun all topped off by the fabulous ocean views.

    All 4 of the different fish were overcooked. The tuna tartar was not fresh. The lobster bisque, which was good, was the highlight of the meal. For a fabulous location with a direct view of the beach, the food was expensive and of mediocre to poor quality. I would not recumbent this restaurant, except for drinks and the view.

    This restaurant has a sports bar on the first floor that looks and sounds like a bar at the beach...noisy and extremely casual ( the World Cup of Soccer) was happening, so we were surprised and delighted to find an elegant restaurant on the second floor with a great view and great food. The mussels were especially good. The bartender was busy due to the soccer match but still managed to get the jib done. This us a new favorite in Delray Beach for us.

    No open table reservation when we arrived. We had asked for a quiet table since two people wore hearing aids. The manager or host was able to find us a table...very nice guy..but it was right across from a pretty noisy birthday party, so, not so good. The drinks were good as was the food but the bloom was pretty much off the lily. Have eaten here four times before, always good and near my home. Unfortunately the rocky start and noise on this occasion has dampened any enthusiasm for a return.

    The place is pretty. If you are there before sundown, you can see to see the ocean. The air conditioning was really blowing and our party of 4 were freezing and I am always hot. Each couple split a salad. The salads were very small. One ordered the swordfish which was maybe 3 oz. of fish. Another ordered duck which was very undercooked. It was sent back and still couldn't cut through te duck when it was cooked more. Yes they took the entree off the bill. Another had the wahoo which was liked. I had the snapper which I felt was bland. You would think with the prices they get for their entrees they would give you parking for free. Overall, I think this restaurant was way overrated.

    Modern decor with welcoming staff. Excellent view of the ocean and beach across the street making for a very pleasant dining experience. The timing on each course was just right allowing for a casual pace to dinner. The food preparation and flavors was unique and the tuna dish I has was outstanding. The accompanying vegetables allowed me to enjoy some new flavors and taste not previously experienced. The presentation was excellent and added to the experience. Price was slightly high but worth the extra and the 40 minute travel. We will return.
