  • "We were from out of town. I wanted to have a quiet evening with my wife on her birthday. The food was fantastically prepared!! The ambience was nice. Very one on one spot...check it out"

  • "Honestly the service at this restaurant was really extraordinary and I think the food was interesting. I had a tasty whitefish and my husband absolutely loved the gnocchi. The portions were relatively small and the prices seemed a bit on the high side for the amount we received BUT i can't say enough about the staff though- they were extremely attentive, we got right in and it was nice to sit on the patio and hang out."

  • "The good options are very unique and I loved the concept of sharing several different options! The salad was very good as well as the gnocchi! The brownie desert was also amazing!"

  • "Food was decent, nice little spot, has a lot of potential, but it's not quite there yet. Not enticing enough to go back."

  • "My husband and I had dinner here for Valentines and it was amazing! Service was great, food was out of this world & the ambience was perfect for a romantic dinner. I had the NY Strip, Sautéed asparagus & whipped potatoes. All of which was perfect. Everything had amazing flavor & melted in my mouth. My husband had the mahi mahi w/ a crab claw cluster which he commented as being, "superb!" We loved everything about our meal and definitely will be returning!"

  • "After two visits to Rue 32, we'll probably be back, but we're also still looking for a better option in the area. The food was pretty good, but not earth-shatteringly good. With the bill hovering around $100 for my wife and I, I honestly expected just a bit higher quality. I felt that my fish was slightly underseasoned and overcooked. The food combinations are interesting, but it's nothing that you couldn't do at home. The service was very good on both visits (with two different servers) and the first server seemed to remember us from our previous visit which was nice. The bottled beer slection is also quite good, but it's pretty heavy on the IPAs (apparently, the chef likes his IPA)."

  • "As I understand it this place is known for tapas, my wife and I went for a special occasions and they did a special 4 course menu. The appetizers were excellent but beyond that nothing was exciting or even close to exceptional. The salad was over dressed, entrée came out cold and way over cooked and the desert was exceptionally sweet. We will give it another try for the wine/beer selection as well as the promise of the tapas menu but if it were based on this alone night alone I would not got back or recommend it."

  • "This was our second time to this restaurant, and dinner this time. Different menus. The service was lovely both times. The dinner menu is designed for small plate sharing, but one can also order an entree size if sharing is not desired. Also, the portions even of the small size is generous, not like some tapas restaurants. There were 2 of us tonight, and each had one small dish for ourselves and one to share, due to dietary constraints, and we had more than enough food. The gnocchi and the scallops were fantastic. The indian dish was very good, but cannot compare to a full indian restaurant, but it came close. Pricing is quite reasonable. We will definitely return again."

  • "This was our second visit to Rue 32. We fell in love with it on our very first visit for lunch. We had to come back and try the dinner scene. We were't disappointed!!!! The quality of food, the variety of entree's, along with the fine service has place it number one on our recommended eating establishments in the area. The menu offer's "small plate" entree's from all over the world and each one is prepared and served beautifully. We love this place and we'll return again and again."

  • "Food was fresh well prepared with nice presentation. Desserts missed the mark."

  • "The ambiance was very trendy, food was great. We got the sharing portions (tapas). Food came out on a timely manner and prices are reasonable."

  • "We enjoyed a delicious, beautifully prepared meal! The service was excellent; not rushed, and our waitress was very helpful in assisting us in making choices from the most varied menu I have ever seen. Great drinks too! Highly recommend!"

  • "While I wouldn't say this was in my top 5 list, I would say I had a very good meal here. We shared several dishes and there was one standout, the mushroom gnocchi. Really good, full of flavor, and fortunately we had it last because it was fabulous. I will admit I am pickier than most people and can appreciate the variety on the menu. There should be something for everybody and our server was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions, which I loved. I would definitely go back to try some other items. Bread was really good. Overall a really good experience."

  • "The varied menu always has me scratching my head, but variety is the spice of life and it's fun to try new things. I'm glad I did! I did notice that the wine list has many choices and the prices are very reasonable. We had a central CA coast zinfandel that was outstanding. The Blueberry cheesecake was just the right note to end on, wonderful."

  • "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."
    Dined on 12/3/2013
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 11/15/2013
  • "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."
