Very interesting and extensive
Very interesting and extensive small plates / "tapas" menu; I have been there multiple times, had a number of dishes and they are all excellent and generally good value for the money. Wine list is not terribly extensive but good breadth and something for every budget.

Our server was great and helped
Our server was great and helped us select a few items that went very well together and everything we tried was delicious. A very neat place and we will be back.

Always the best!!
Timothy Smith and his wife continue the tradition of Rue 32 being creative, fine dining, great wine selections, and friendly great service. Rue 32 is always our first choice of restaurants during our golf trips to Pinehurst. It has never let us down.

Great for a group!
This was our first visit and our group of 8 enjoyed celebrating the 4th of July and a birthday with a wonderful selection of tapas style entrees. There is something for everyone with selections from several different countries. We tried a little of everything, but the gnocchi, beef tips, and shrimp and grits were our favorite! A close second were the spring rolls and the banh mi. The only disappointment was the two different types of creme brulee we had for dessert, which had very little taste, however, the mocha cheesecake was wonderful. The restaurant has a very intimate atmosphere and is decorated superbly! We definitely will return to enjoy another meal!

We were in Pinhurst celebrating my husbands birthday! He picked this restaurant! Service was great, met the owners, who were delightful! Food was innovative, servings were a perfect size. I highly reccommend the curry dishes! Yum!! Beautiful, relaxing interior! Charming accents down to the cool placemats and tableware! Would go back in a heartbeat!

Great group dining
While holding a three day sales meeting at Pinehurst I brought a group of 21 to Rue 32 and it couldn't have worked out better. The side room was arranged perfectly, the menu lends itself to group dining with a great array of choices and plate sizes at reasonable prices and the staff was exceptional.

Rue 32 is off the betten path in Souuthern Pines, but definitively worth looking for. They call it a small plates restaurant, but the portions were very generous. Different selections from around the globe make this the perfect choose for everyone.

Try it You'll be glad you did....
The whole experience was wonderful. Don't be in a hurry, good food is made to order not made in advance and the food here is fresh!! We love the way the menu is laid out there is much variety here so you can satisfy many different desires. Loved the Bacon Salad. We will return soon.

This was our first visit to Rue 32 but it won't be our last! I loved the wide variety of choices. Everything we tried was great! The atmosphere was relaxed but elegant, the same can be said for the food. Nothing snooty, but you can see and taste the care that goes into the dishes.

Great service by Heather, great drinks by the Bar tender! He even let me sample a new gin I had never heard of. Our server was very helpful and honest about the items on the menu. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a unique food experience.

Great Spot to dine.
The owners of Rue 32 are always welcoming, and seem genuinely pleased to see you walk through the door. This is a nice intimate restaurant with and interesting menu. The food is divided by country so there is a little something for each persons taste. They also offer most items in small plate size so it's great for sharing and tasting several things in one evening. Wonderful bar area separate from the dining room, where the cocktails are always flowing.

Extensive Menu--Great for Tasting
The menu is all over the map--literally, there are meals available from recipes from around the world which is unusual and nice. The food was good and we shared plates which was the intent of the evening. They were short stocked on the first two wines we selected and I started to become a little concerned...they came through with an '11 Rombauer Zinfandel that was delicious. The service was prompt and the people professional and courteous. The owners were visible and interested to know how things were going. All in all--a nice night and a good find in Southern Pines.

To Die For Scallops
My wife and I each ordered Scallops (It was a Friday Nite). We had them prepared differently, but in each case they were exquisitely done. Lightly browned, very tender, and perfectly seasoned. Absolutely delicious.
Highly recommended establishment for anyone seeking something out of the ordinary.

For the curious and adventurous
The nature of this restaurant's menu allows you to explore a variety of different types of food cultures without committing yourself to that particular culture for the entire meal. Appetizer portions at fantastic prices mean that you can choose a number of items from an impressive collection of dishes and share among others at your table to get a taste of everything. Drinks are also really well done, and I really like that you can walk in, have a great meal, have a great drink or three, and walk out without having to take out a second mortgage.

Rue 32 was as good as I had
Rue 32 was as good as I had heard! My friends are always bragging on the food and service here and now I know I understand why. I had a balsamic pear and gorgonzola pizza that was the kind of stuff foodies dreams about. My husband had the beef Wellington. He also enjoyed his dinner. We will definitely be back and bring our friends.

Very Nice Evening
First visit. I took a female friend here for a romantic dinner.
The manager/owner was very accommodating.
We were seated next to the fireplace in the main room just as my guest wanted.
We enjoyed the wine selected and the entrée, particularly the Beef Wellington.
The best part of the evening was the dessert selection - the crème brûlée trio.
Worth the one hour drive. Definitely will return.
