    I was there for a business lunch and the place was kind of empty. They served us drinks and never came back to take our order. We called the bartender 20 minutes later and finally a waitress took our order. By the description on the menu I ordered the "Smoked Salmon" plate figuring a whole salmon filet over some greens. After 20 more minutes I was surprised to receive cold and small pieces of salmon (not smoked) scattered on a bed of croutons-like things and other stuff. Then I ordered regular coffe (American) and the waitress prepared it with on the table with a french press but when she poured it into the cup pieces of coffee grounds were all over the cup. Also sugar was not served until 5 minutes later. Much room for improvement.......

    I have been here many times. As a local it is where I take visitors. Pretty consistent with food, service and ambiance. We had drinks, wine, our meal and dessert and tea for a fairly reasonable price--oh and a view of the ocean. Each of us enjoyed our salads and entrees. The snapper w coconut risotto was excellent with a fun presentation using a coconut shell. Chocolate cake was another standout. It is nice to get a tea presentation that trumps their wonderful individual french press--and the herbal tea we had did just that. Another great experience at 50. I will do it again.

    Found this restaurant on line. Made a reservation through Open Table, requested a later time than what was available and received a call from restaurant to change reservation to later time. We were seated right away. View is so beautiful. It is located on second floor above another restaurant across from beach. The restaurant is a wall of windows, so everyone can see out, but next time I would request a table right by the window. I saw there was an outside area to sit, but we sat inside. People were dressed casual but the atmosphere was a little more formal. Service was great. Food was delicious! We ordered the tuna sushi appetizer, shared a salad, and had the grouper and snapper--so yummy! We were so happy with our meal

    Sunday brunch was just OK as far as the food went., but the service was bad from start to finish. The employees do not seem engaged with their jobs. Just going through the paces and not enjoying it. Upon arrival the host/hostess was M.I.A. We they showed up after about ten minutes they both looked at us surprised that we were not taken care fo. Led us to a table and there we waited for at least another ten minutes before we saw a waitress who told us to "hold on" and then got ignored completely until we flagged her down to order. By then she put up this big attitude and only got friendly as check time arrived. This place needs a better manager. What a great place it could be!

    Even though you have a reservation you need to call them unless you want to sit next to the bar! When they are busy you have a very low chance of getting a good table using only open table. Otherwise the place is outstanding.

    First a comment on the "special request" part of the OpenTable website...when I made the reservation, I requested outdoor, ocean view seating. My reservation was confirmed...with no confirmation or rejection of my "special request". Hence, I assumed the confirmation meant the "special request" was also confirmed. Wrong!! Not available, I was told upon arrival. So, indoor seating with a wonderful view of the waiter station. Then, pleasant waiter but possibly with too many tables--certainly not attentive. And the food...bland, listless at best, unimaginative presentation. Prices would be reasonable for good food...not reasonable for the small, bland portions that we were served.

    The food was top notch. Everything is made from scratch except the lobster bisque. Even the puff pastry that topped my shrimp pot pie. You could taste the butter between each flakey layer. The meal was worth every penny. We sat outside and the view of the ocean in the distance was beautiful. Everything on the menu seemed delicious so be sure to save room for dessert. Service was excellent.

    This was my first visit.... i chose it for the rave reviews on the ocean views and food comments. Early Valentine's dinner at 5p. Hostess tried giving us a table facing a WALL! After leaving us standing in the middle of the restaurant and departing for a bit of time, hostess returned and gave us a table with an ok view of the ocean in the middle of the restaurant. The noise level is a bit much with the bar and TVs sitting in the middle of the restaurant. Decor is nicely appointed. Staff looks sharp. But really didnt lend itself to a romantic ambiance. The food and presentation was amazing!

    My friends & I had a very nice, extremely tasty dinner. We each had a fish entree...all of which were delicious using uncommon ingredients. We shared the mussels, which were in an exceptional broth. Food, taste and presentation were very memorable, though ambiance needed a little TLC, and we arrived a bit too late to enjoy the ocean view...just wish they and many other local restaurants offered fruit at end of meal.

    Located above famed Restaurant, Boston's on the Beach. Elevator one floor up to Spectacular view of Atlantic Ocean. Renovated and renamed a few years ago, this find, has been a bit disappointing as of late. Menu changes, previous "special" items removed, and Wait Staff, Hostess, less than capable to make Clientele feel this is the special place it had been in the past. Regrets! Was introduced to the New Manager, Ferrence, nice young man, and hopefully he can rejuvenate the benign environment that prevails. The Ownership has many other top establishments, so I was quite surprised.

    Wife had the grouper and my son and I the snapper and we all thought our entrees were excellent. Wedge and Caesar salads also very good. Our server, David, was everything you wish for in a server. Unfortunately, I could not rate the experience Excellent for one reason. We were seated at 8:30 and after studying the menu and deciding upon our selections, we were told they were out of 2 of the 8 seafood entrees on the menu. Of course, one of those entrees was the one my son and I had selected. Most disappointing that they were out of 25% of their seafood standard menu items. Still, overall a very good dining experience and we shall return.

    Used to be a favorite, but lately service pace is extremely slow and prices are much too high so value is missing. All items are a la carte and entrees are north of $30. Food is still very good, but not for the price. Location is great and I think that's what you're paying for. There are great restaurants in Delray Beach that offer excellent food and much better dining experience. We've stopped recommending 50 Ocean and won't be back until there's a compelling reason.
