    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.

    It used to be Upstairs at Boston's, a casual open air place we like to go to for lunch. This was our first time as 50 Ocean. A fantastic view of the Atlantic at sunset. The service was attentive and knowledgeable. The meals and presentation were fantastic. The pace was perfect and the dessert topped off a splendid evening with visiting friends. We'll be back.

    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.

    We went here for Mother's Day Brunch and we were beyond disappointed. We'll begin with the call we received the day before letting us know that they overbooked and they would have to seat us outside. We were also informed that if we were even 5 minutes late we would lose our table because they were SO busy. Yet, when we arrived, the restaurant was half-empty! The service was horrible, the waitress was completely indifferent to our needs and rude to her other tables. My dish was missing an item, and it took another 15 minutes for the waitress to check on us to let her know. When I informed her of the issue, she questioned me regarding whether the item should be there! The food itself was pedestrian at best. Overall horrible experience!

Being able to observe the beautiful ocean from the second floor is just an added bonus! We always enjoy our time together at 50 Ocean. The staff is very friendly and you never feel rushed.

    It was my fiancé birthday and I made the reservation days in advance. I called the day before to try and get a window seat for the awesome beach view. The girl on the phone said she would do her best. We were seated right away with a window seat view! Wow! Amazing! This started the night off with a bang. Our server John was phenomenal! The manager AND chef paid a visit during our dinner asking us how everything was. As an individual working in the hospitality industry, I can tell you this was absolutely one of the best restaurants we've dined in. We can't thank everyone enough for the wonderful birthday celebration!

    Food was beautiful but everything, aside from the warm basket of bread was not well prepared. Food was cold, risotto was very underdone and fish over cooked and dry. Ceviche was ambitios but lacked seasoning and was not properly chilled. Not accommodating to any special requests either. Nice view though.

    The food was expensive and disappointing. A lunch sandwich of grilled grouper with fries was skimpy and not worth $17. Apparently the menu has changed since my many previous visits. The previous menu was more extensive with a variety of sandwiches and hot entrees and the portions were more generous. To add insult to injury, there was an $8.00 parking fee. I won't be returning any time soon.

    50 Ocean is the renovated upscale dinning room of Boston's on the Beach. This has been a great spot for people who once lived in the Boston area as we did for almost 40 years. With the remodeling of the upstairs room we have yet another reason to frequent Boston's. The seafood is outstanding. I had the crab topped grouper and it was, as they say, "to die for." The cocktails are creative and generous. The wine list, while not extensive, has something for everyone at all price points. And the view... Well this is what ocean-front dining should be. All in all, it is one of the best spots in southeastern Florida.
