We were celebrating a special friend'a Birthday. I had requested a table with a view of the ocean. We had a fabulous table with a view of the ocean and the super moon! Our server was very attentive and provided excellent service. The food was fabulous, from the Parmesan Scallops to the Lobster Two Way to the Yellowtail Snapper to the Pork Chop!!! Our appetizers were also delicious. The only negative was the noise level. The restaurant was very busy and it was very noisy. It was difficult for our booth of 6 to have a conversation. With that said, it was a wonderful dining experience and I would highly recommend it!!

We celebrated our anniversary here and it was perfect. Our table overlooked the ocean and was a great place to have our dinner. I was expecting a candle in the dessert but did not get it which was the only disappointment. My husband had the mussels and grouper which he loved. I had the chilled lobster and shrimp appetizer and yellow tail snapper for my entree. Lots of food and wine made for a perfect dinner.

The only issue was the Hostess, who tried to sit us at a deuce table in front of a wall when the restaurant was completely empty. When we asked for a window table (which is why you go to 50 Ocean in the 1st place) she said she could not do that because all of the other tables were reserved. Alana? -our fantastic waitress, stepped in and said it would be fine. One other couple came in the entire night and none of the other tables were used at all. There were no reservations as the Hostess had said... But... The food was excellent and our waitress was superb.

What a surprise!!
The atomosphere was exactly what I was looking for ROMANTIC! We were celebrating our 1st yr Anniversary & belated Birthday for my boyfriend. The appetizers, entrees and dessert were all OUTSTANDING!
The view of Del Ray Beach was wonderful.
Our choices for dinner were:
Appetizers - Chilled Seafood Cocktail & braised Mussels (the sauce with the mussels Ummmmm!)
Entree - Yellowtail Snapper & Braised short ribs (delicious)
Appetizer - Chocolate Lava Cake (Boyfriend's favorite)
Making plans to return with friends

50 Ocean doesn't disappoint
We had a great time at 50 Ocean, the spare rib appetizer with fried mac and cheese balls was to die for! Service was prompt and friendly and the entrees were excellent. Valet are friendly and our vehicle was brought up immediately.

Great beach side dining
Our waitress, Cindy, began our evening on a great note with her informative and attentive personality. Her food recommendations were spot on. We couldn't decide from all the great appetizers, so we ate tapas style. Tuna tartar, wedge salad, crab dip, and seafood bisque were all excellent. The dip was heavy on the cheese, but worked great for sharing. We also had their divers scallops and once we tasted those we were wishing we had ordered those first. Fantastic scallops with lobster claw meat and risotto. Will definitely be going back.

We love the view of the ocean!
We love the view of the ocean! Everyone in the restaurant has the opportunity to enjoy it from their tables. The restaurant is very clean and attractive. The bar has a buit in aquarium which is gorgeous. Music is very soft so you can enjoy your conversations without yelling. When selecting menu items the staff is very helpful . While dining they check on your table many times. It's our favorite place in Delray!

The food and service were
The food and service were very good. My husband and I were disappointed with our seat and the hostess. We were seated in the bar area which is not a place we like to sit. There were 3 tables that sort of had a scenc view and we were seated at the worst one. Farthest away from the window and right next to the door that lead to the outside eating area. Every time the door opened I got a hot blast of air and wind. It was a very windy evening. Finally asked our waitress if we could change tables; she checked and we were able to. When we were seated I asked the hostess about changing tables and she said there were no other tables available which turned out not to be true.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've been to 50 Ocean may times, but this is the first time we have ordered from the brunch menu.
I ordered the french toast for my husband, but he could not eat it because the corn flake crust was too thick and difficult to cut..
I ate his meal and he ate my fritata. I ate the bland salad that came with the fritata.
Had a guest from Palm Beach who had never been to 50 Ocean - I don't think she was impressed.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Exceeded expectations! The
Exceeded expectations! The view was fabulous, our wait person was attentive without hovering and handled the birthday dessert to perfection! LOved that the Sous Chef came out and introduced himself, gave the dining experience that special somthin' somthin'... We will come back and tell our friends too!

Good spot for view, slow service
Brunch--it was okay. Menu choices were sparse. I get the small plates but what about other options? Fish sandwich was miniscule--maybe because I asked to omit bun?? Table mates liked the egg dishes. Bloody Mary bar was well done. Service was slow slow slow! Even for the check. There was a huge party there so it was very noisy on one side. Luckily hostess sat us on the other side. Servers are all very nice, kitchen must be slow. I'll still go back. The view is amazing and it's great for out of town guests.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
OCEAN WAS SLIGHTLY ROUGH
EVERYTHING WAS VERY GOOD BUT NOTHING WAS GREAT OTHER THAN THE SERVICE. SOME VERY INTERESTING SOUNDING DISHES FELL JUST SHORT ON FLAVOR. FISH DISHES SLIGHTLY OVERCOOKED. WAITRESS (CINDY) WAS EXCEPTIONALL FRIENDLY AND EFFICIENT.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the new menu. The grilled
Love the new menu. The grilled ham and cheese is amazing. Our server Brian did a great job, answered all our questions about some of the new menu items. Coming back to try some of the new small plates.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Can't miss with this restaurant if you're looking for a seafood-based menu with good cocktails and a healthy variety of appetizers. Service is fantastic, the view is beautiful, and the ambiance is wonderful. Priced appropriately for the quality and venue.

Our reserved table was perfect-
Our reserved table was perfect- just what we requested for a party of 8.
It was very busy this evening but our server, Cindy, was right on top of everything.
The food was excellent , as it has been on every one of our visits.
Beautiful setting with ocean views and just the right vibe!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great view with good food
New restaurant for us. Enjoyed the bar as the bartender was friendly and attentive. Our waiter was a bit pushy with asking for our order when we made it clear we would order an appetizer first, then wine, then our main course as we were enjoying the atmosphere to catch up with friends. Other than that, 50 Ocean is a great spot for a romantic dinner or to bring good friends for seafood. Another pain was the parking. Not marked clearly and could be a hassle if not familiar with the area.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were a party of 4 with 2 friends from Germany visiting. We came to 50 Ocean in large part due to our experience during the recent Taste Makers event. The apps and entres were fantasic with choices ranging from the ceviche, grouper, snapper and lobster. The food was fresh and prepared perfectly. Desert was a bit disappointing. We ordered the "truffle garden" which included assorted truffles, strawberries, vanilla ice cream and "sweet soil" which was crumbled chocolate cake. We had this desert before and it was awesome. Unforuneately what we received was very small strawberries, the ice cream was melting. It was still tasty though. That is the only reason I give 4 stars and not 5. The service was great and we will be back.

Twice Dined, Twice Enchanted
Our second visit to 50 Ocean was as pleasurable if not more so than the first. They have instituted a new menu since our first visit which our server, Alanna, very knowledgeably went over with us. Alanna did a great job throughout the dining experience ---- pleasant, personable, efficient, just the right amount of attention. We both had the grouper for our entrees and it was fabulous. It had a blue crab mushroom stuffing with yukon gratin potatoes and crispy brussels sprouts. The combination of flavors was exceptional. For dessert we shared the beignets presented with a blueberry compote. Out of this world !!! The three beignets were just the right quantity for the two of us. We highly recommend 50 Ocean and will definitely be returning.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wow! What a Wonderful Find
Our dining experience was the best. The food was interesting, different and exceptional.
We had a table with an ocean view. The service was excellent. Our waiter guided us through the wonderful menu. He was knowledgeable and attentive.
I highly recommend 50 Ocean.

Overall experience was outstanding.
Overall experience was outstanding. When we asked for a recipe the manager and sous chef came to our table to tell us how the item was prepared. Food was excellent, great service and an overall winner.

Another great meal at 50 Ocean
Food was awesome! We had scallops that were perfectly prepared and the top hat ribeye that was so tender and tasty
a knife was not needed. The key lime parfait was to die for. George our waiter was was friendly attentive and professional.
We will continue to keep coming back!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Better 2nd time around
Great Cudos to the chef for the roasted beet, fried green tomato & goat cheese appetizer! Amazing - almost ordered again as an entree. But decided to go with the Wahoo, which you don't find on the menus often. Grilled perfectly and served with an orzo with spinach, tomatos with a hint of lemon zest - just an amazing dish. Will return again, soon, and hope the beet dish is on the menu again. Could easily become a signature appetizer, my guest agreed. The weather was dreary, rainy .. so the view to the ocean was limited ... but better luck next time around. OH and check out the east end of the bar --- nice surprise.

Nice ambience and view. Good food
Food selection is good. Plating and presentation very good. Entrée was excellent. Side dish was adequate. Dessert was delicious(beignets). I had the Snapper with orzo made with coconut in a coconut shell. My date had the grouper that she claimed was excellent. Server presented the menu in detail upon request and made every dish sound more amazing that the last. The server even offered to have the coconut broken up into smaller pieces to enjoy bite by bite. A bit pricey. Nice view of the ocean, nice ambience at night. The aquarium is a nice touch. Balcony dining available overlooking the Sand Bar.

10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed a great meal. Food was great as was service. Chef came to our table, as well as to others, to make sure the dining experience was good. Only issue we had was the noise level was very high that night.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a very cozy and romantic setting atop Boston's on the Beach. The chef has created a menu with very unique presentations. You won't find the usual entrees that can be had at most restaurants. The decor gives off both a modern and romantic vibe. In the daylight you can catch a glimpse of the ocean. While a little pricey it is not outrageous given the location, ambience and interesting food selection. Service could have been a little more attentive. Note that if you use the valet parking you need to provide your receipt to the attendant to get the validated price If you want to keep your credit card receipt you should take the itemized receipt with you to use as proof.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had booked a table at 50 ocean to take my friend for her Birthday lunch. I had informed the restaurant ahead of time that
this was a Birthday. Despite that, there was no acknowledgement of the Birthday. I have been to 50 ocean at least a dozen
times. Usually for a Birthday, they put candles on the dessert. The menu was much smaller than normal, I guess, for the
summer. The bill came to $61 which is high for lunch, especially without wine. We each had a salad, split a dessert, and
had tea, so $61 is expensive. I would still go back, as the food is very good, but I hope that this isn't the beginning of the end
for 50 ocean.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love 50 ocean. The food is always delicious. The muscles and the carpaccio are amazing. I also can't get enough of any special the chef prepares. The service is warm and welcoming. They are all very knowledgable about the menu and seem to love to talk about the food. My favorite restaurant in Delray.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service great food will definitely be back!!
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
I didnt know about this restaurant before but now its definitely a place I'll be going to again. The service was amazing, The food was absolutely delicious with great presentation. I was there one a first date. I definitely left a lasting impression thanks to the staff and the ambiance. It was also a full moon so that help. My only regret is that I didnt get there sooner to watch the sun go down at the amazing view this restaurant has!

Enjoyed a delightful evening
Enjoyed a delightful evening with four friends. Beautiful view of the ocean. Good food and service. Will go back when I am in the area.

Beautiful views and fabulous food
We decided on date night at 50 Ocean, the absolute right move. The atmosphere is fun and sophisticated. Lively patrons around a gorgeous bar. Beautiful ocean views. The food was excellent. Try the steak tartare, expertly prepared. Perfect. The fish, both the grouper and the snapper, were fresh and cooked perfectly. The dessert was delicious and fun to eat. Beignets with blueberry compote, dulce de leche, and fresh whipped cream to dip your hearts content. We'll be back with family and friends. Also, if you have a minute or ten, stop by the Sandbar next door. Cute hangout across from the beach. My only complaint is spending $$$$ and have to pay for parking. UGH! Otherwise is perfection.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Order the Chicken BLT Salad
It's awesome. Crisp iceberg, creamy gorganzola, applewood bacon, fabulous pulled chicken (light & dark meat, so flavorful & tender), delicious dressing. Restaurant has beautiful ocean views, great service and attractive decor.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had to wait 45 min for our table but they bought us drinks and appetizers - probably a $100 worth. Made the wait very enjoyable. Excellent service and even better food.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
There was a party the evening we went and they were full. The man in front seated us outside at a table for 2 and we had the BEST dinner. Very reasonable and the goof was great.

Outstanding from start to finish
My husband and I celebrated our honeymoon in DelRay and had dinner at 50 Ocean. The atmosphere was great, service was wonderful and the food was perfect! If you are looking for a diverse selection of dishes with a flare of flavor, 50 Ocean will not let you down. Recommendations: Stuffed Grouper, cheese and meat platter and the S'mores dessert.
We were very pleased!

On the Beach
Great spot, great food and service. Beautiful presentation and great combinations. Menu is limited but with plenty of choice. Everything they do they do very well. My only complaint is that our food could have been warmer the first time we ate there, but we did go back again.

Great Friendsgiving at 50 Ocean!
After going back and forth between cooking dinner and going out to eat, my friend and I decided to go with 50 Ocean for Thanksgiving dinner this year. I do not regret this decision at all. I had great roasted duck and she had a fantastic stuffed pork tenderloin. Soooo good!
