A word from The Office
A place where whimsy and gastronomical delights go hand in hand, The Office is a modern American Gastropub... A place that is comfortable where the food is as important as the drink, not quite a bar and not quite a restaurant, The Office is offering a casual-meets-refined atmosphere that welcomes beer drinkers and wine snobs, non-fussy eaters and foodies alike. The Office is a charmed neighborhood watering hole...

    Took my grandson to lunch at this restaurant at the recommendation of a friend. Great food. Terrific burgers. The service staff was terrific and the whole experience was just wonderful. A highly recommended place to try.

    The Office is an excellent find for Happy Hour - the cocktails are inventive and tasty, and they have appetizers that are out of this world! You can easily make a meal out of a combination of things like the Fancy Fried Green Tomatoes and Brussels Sprouts, or the Crispy Office Tacos and Warm Pretzel Bread. Whatever you choose will be delicious... The menu itself is good, but I personally think their list of appetizers and Happy Hour bar bites is better! However, the veggie burger is definitely worth trying...even for the meatiest of meat eaters!

    Although the food was good as well as the service, I don't believe I would go back to the office. It was too noisy for me. I had no idea when I made the reservation that it was a sports type bar. Its definitely a lively place and I'm sure one could have fun there.

    The food & wait staff were wonderful. The hostess was extremely rude. We arrived at 7:16 for a 7:00 reservation after calling ahead to say we were running late. We were told no problem. On arrival the hostess scolded us for the lateness & told us that as they only hold a reservation 15min. our table had been given away. The manager intervened and seated us outside & our sever Adam was great however the surly hostess created a very negative first impression. Customers should always be made to feel welcome in a place of business not chastised by staff. Unfortunately with so many other equally good restaurants literally surrounding The Office, her negative attitude would make me think twice before returning.

    The Office is a great little find in downtown Delray. My only complaint was that it's semi outdoors so kind of buggy. A couple of dishes weren't hot enough. However, our wait person was great and the food is otherwise decent.

    Overpriced and not worth it. Local and 2nd time eating here. Had a swordfish sandwich. It was overcooked and pretty awful. My wife had te burger. It was overcooked as well and not that great. Ordered a titos vodka and soda. 14 dollars for the smallest drink I ever had. At 14 dollars it's the most expensive I have had on Atlantic or even Ruth Chris the palm or any place for that drink and te smallest size. Service was non existent and my water was empty the entire time. My appetizer came out with dinner which was an oil laden sweet potato chips. The first time was fair the 2nd much worse. Menu is quite limited. I don't mind paying 19 for a burger but make it a little special.

    We were a party of 4 and were disappointed. I thought this would be a fun Saturday evening out. It was extremely loud. I enjoy a vibrant atmosphere but this was ridiculous. You can't her the person next to you. The food was average. Asked for a simple request of mashed white potatoes (which they offer) instead of the mashed sweet potatoes and it did not happen. Service was very slow. Not going back.

    We enjoyed sitting on covered patio along Atlantic Avenue. The people watching (almost like a fashion show) kept us entertained; plus the cars and motorcycles that drove by were unbelievable. We counted 8 Ferrari's & Lamborgini's! Our server was very attentive and took time to explain the menu & specials. Our food was tasty, from the Club Salad (on special that night) to the Skirt Steak and Prime Rib Sandwich - they definitely serve quality food with a nice presentation. Our only complaint was the cappucino's were not hot, but they quickly served us new ones. It was our first time there but we will definitely return to the fun, hip, well run restaurant & bar.

    As a local, heard about The Office for years - great burgers, mediocre service. Well - our server Jeremy was phenomenal (i hope that's his name Tuesday night 6PM shift, if wrong name, I apologize). He challenged bartenders, on my behalf, for a Jalapeno Margaritas - delivered and delicious! He suggested the fried green tomatoes and oh so right - although our suggestion of tuna tacos, tuna + taco not a good fit! Our server was attentive as he obtained more tables to serve - checking on our water, drinks, next round of food ... and Yes the CEO burger was served medium rare as requested, delicious. I'll be back ... silly rumors!

    There were 3 of us and it was a bit difficult to carry on conversation. We are from NY and familiar with popular restaurants. Would have enjoyed it if music was just a bit lower. Next time we'll eat outside. The menu is nice and easy to read, with many good options for all types of appetites. Service was very good and the food was good, too. Definitely, a hot spot on Atlantic Avenue and worth the visit. Decor is nice, red chairs with animal prints and tables arranged where there's enough room in between. Like the idea of tilted mirrors on wall for diners there, to see behind you, and people watching. Bar was quite busy, too.

    It's true, but oh so worth it! I was looking for a restaurant off Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach to host some friends from out of town. The dinner ended up being more than we wanted to spend, but the overall experience made it worth it! Us ladies selected special martinis ($15 per drink) and our men specialty beers. All were very happy with our drinks. We ordered the fried green tomato appetizer and the crab cake. Both of these were delightful. I had never had Fried Green Tomatoes, and I enjoyed them immensely! Everyone went with something different for our main course: Veggie burger, CEO burger, fresh catch of the day sandwich and another specialty burger - all were GREAT! Truffle fries, seared brussel sprouts and sweet potato chips-WOW!

    We took my mom to celebrate an early Easter lunch. Although my husband and I had been to The Office before , it was the first time for her. The food and drinks were excellent , everyone was happy with the meal. Service top notch. The manager was very accommodating with my mom special needs, we really appreciate the attention and time he out to make sure we are having a memorable experience. I highly recommend The Office for special occasions or just for a fun, relaxing lunch or dinner.

    Ordered a Burger, medium- got it rare. Sent it back for additional cooking time- still came back rare. The manager gave me half off on the Burger, which was nice, but didn't make up for the unsatisfactory meal. However, I think this experience may be an aberration as other visits to The Office have been very good.

    We were in del ray and had not ventured into their restaurant scene ever. I found the office on line, read reviews and decided to give a try. It was great, overall quality of the food excellent and menu was really creative. All at our table were really happy with our choices. I like a lively scene and it was, but perhaps a bit to loud even for me. Only complaint was I specifically asked for no fries w. Mahi sandwich and they sent them anyway. Wine list was limited and the wines by the glass pricey, Ferrai Carano Pinot Grigio was $12 and a really small pour.

    We took my son for his 18th birthday and we were really disappointed. The Office was his "go to" place for his birthday and date nights over the last few years. Unfortunately the menu selections are now very limited and the food just OK. Looks like they are becoming more of a bar than a restaurant. The service at the Office was never very good, but at least the food was, now that they have changed the menu we won't be going back.
