    Seated promptly in the bar area. Windy by door and very tight . When asked to be moved we were told the empty tables were reserved? Thought we also had reservations... We stayed and noticed the table we asked for never became occupied . The chef walked the room and was apologetic for my friends salmon being so well done overall experience was not wonderful

    We were looking forward to a special evening at 50 Ocean. We had a window seat but once the sun went down we were looking out at pitch-black. The dining room is nice looking but quite dark. The acoustics are horrible-- we heard every word of every conversation at the tables around us. This is probably due to the floor to ceiling windows. Service was not rushed and the wait staff was very good. Food and drinks were good but nothing special. The "side" dishes that accompanied the different fish entrees just decorated the plate. We had 2 appetizers and 3 entrees for three people and had no leftovers.

    The view of the Atlantic Ocean is good and adds to the experience. The waitress was pleasant and very accommodating. The food was prepared perfectly. The mussels are probably some of best we have ever had. My wife and I each shared 1/2 of our meals making the dining experience that much better. My only complaint with this restaurant is the $5,00 charge to park your car. It is almost a necessity to use this service as parking in Delray Beach is very limited. We always spend at least $100.00 so at these prices the parking should be complimentary.

    three of us ordered the grouper which was excellently prepared and more than adequate in portion size. One of us ordered scallops which looked like an appetizer portion i.e. 3 small to medium scallops and about a tablespoon size portion of what was a watery material supposed to be orzo and peas. Extraordinarily disappointing for the price. Would recommend to others but advise them not to order scallop dinner

    Upon arrival for the first time, we were told that the 6:30 reservation we made a day ahead could only be honored with an outside table. When we asked how far ahead we should reserve a table for inside seating, we were told a week. So we sat at the bar which is not quite the same ambiance as the nearby tables overlooking the water.

    This restaurant could get by on its view of the ocean alone, but the food and wine were also excellent. The menu is not intimidating and the wine list is limited but sufficient. Our waiter was attentive but not at all intrusive. 50 Oceans has the quality and decor of a fine dining establishment yet maintains the relaxed atmosphere of a beachside bar.

    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.
