I was disappointed on the whole.
The room temp was very cold, and the noise level quite high despite being only 1/2 full. Booking ahead did not get us a great table, not even an acceptable one for the first 1/2 hour or so. There was only a gi-normous table for 8 available. We were heartened, however, to be offered a nice, small window table partway through.
I ordered the shrimp tacos and it was only after a bite into the drippy mess that I realized it was a chunk of fish, NOT shrimp. I hate fish with bones! They accommodatingly re-made my lunch. However, the kitchen was slow to begin with, and this double wait wasn't so welcome. A small kicker at the end was that each refill for smallish glasses of iced tea and coke (maybe 8oz.?) was billed - even after the order mess-up.

The beach view is very nice, but the deficits are not overcome. I won't hurry back.

Our server, Dee, was great. In fact, all staff members were friendly and accommodating. The food was excellent and portion sizes very fair. We were there from 12-2P for a business lunch meeting. It was not crowded but should be. I look forward to going back... and will soon!

For the price the food was not great. The flavors were bland and the combination was odd. I expected more from such a pricey place. I’ve had their brunch before and it was fantastic. This was so so. Disappointing!

The host who seated us was great, very friendly and gave us a choice of tables and recommended the better choice for a good ocean view. Our server was also friendly, knowledgeable, made good recommendations and was obviously experienced at what she does. The food was fabulous, wonderful flavors, textures and creative presentations. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

We took advantage of the Delray Dining week promotion.
The shrimp coctail was very nice. 5 large shrimp were served weith a nice dipping sauce that
had quite a bite. I had the salmon which was prepared so well. It looked rare but it was cooked very nicely
It was very moist and very delicious. It was accompanied by a pancake and a wonderful mixture of succotash. Dessert was scrumptious. They served 3 beignets which were creme filled and served with fresh whipped cream and blueberries. They were warm and so delicious. Matthew was our server and was very helpful in explaining all the choices on the menu.

The food and service was good for the price. The hostesses was extremely rude and stuck up. We arrived early noon and were sat by the window. After about 15 min into lunch we asked the waiter to move across the room out of the sun. He was very nice and said no problem. The hostess comes by mid move and literally rolled her eyes and said directly infrount of us “what do you mean they want to move” the sun with be gone in 10 minutes” than proceeds to huff and puff like a little kid. Aside from the fact we were a small party of 4 and 1 of 3 tables occupied in the entire restaurant this was uncalled for. The waiter was extremely uncomfortable as were my guest and I. Needless to say this ruined my entire experience and will not be returning or recommending anyone to dine here. Not the way I expected to be treated for a $350 lunch!

We have always enjoyed eating at Boston's on the Beach, but never ventured upstairs to 50 Oceans. Since this week was a summer prix fixe in Delray, it seemed a perfect opportunity to try this upscale restaurant. We dined with friends, & all of us were delighted with our experience. Cindy was our server, & she was truly phenomenal. She guided us in our selections & was right on target. The delicious warm bread basket was refilled as needed, the courses were served with appropriate spacing so we could enjoy our conversation, sip our wine, & not feel rushed. Cindy was professional, yet warm & personable. It was a perfect evening to gaze out the window at the breathtaking ocean, & our view was amazing. We now have Boston's for our beach lunches & 50 Ocean for gourmet dinners. Thank you, Cindy!

We all arrived for our anniversary dinner - my parents 51st and our 23rd along with our 17 year old son. The views are breathtaking and the ambiance we perfect for what we were looking for. We were greeted by Jason the bartender who immediately made you feel welcome and at home. He was friendly, funny, efficient and engaging! Once seated at our table David greeted us with extreme warmth and hospitality. He also was knowledgeable and efficient and gave excellent advice on the menu. Once we ordered and our appetizers were delivered, our sons appetizer fell to the floor. David immediately said the cost would be removed from our bill and put a rush on another order. All of our meals were expertly prepared and absolutely divine!
As we were wrapping things up we were presented with complementary prosecco and desserts. Such a wonderful touch!
My husband and I have dined all over the country and throughout the Caribbean and this was honestly one of the best if not the best dining experiences we have ever said. I simply can not say enough positive things and even though we had plans for other spots during our stay in Delray we plan on going back!
