The food, service and view are great. It is a place that we return to often and enjoy. The ocean view is spectacular.

The menu choices were awful, or should I say nothing on the menu was accurate. Garden omelette had no vegetables, only prime rib and cheese. Kitchen vegetable soup was clam chowder. French toast was made with bananas foster and they simply could not adapt and make you simple French toast. Or a simple egg dish. It was eggs Benedict or the steak filled omelet, or nothing. The 8 year old with us had to have quinoa pancakes with blueberries, no other option.
The view is very nice. I’ll never take my family to brunch there again!

We arrived on time for our reservations and taken to a very unfavorable table. We asked to move inside or out and were told that all the other tables were reserved within the next half hour. That turned out not to be true. Many tables more pleasantly place were unoccupied the whole time we were there. The empanadas were ok but it was the worst lobster roll I have ever attempted to eat. It was obvious the lobster had sat in the refrigerator too long and was tasteless. The beignets were fine. Our server Amy did a fine job.

I’ve eaten at 50 Ocean several times since 2014 and always had a good experience. It is a lovely restaurant and the views cannot be beat. I was excited to be heading to Delray and having dinner there after being stuck in the cold and brutal Northeast. That said, my most recent trip was highly disappointing. From one of the main entrees (grouper) being sold out with nothing to replace it to them not accommodating a meal request they have always done in the past (making a burger) to me getting sick after the meal, the whole night left a bad impression. Our waitress was sweet but no one seemed overly interested in the service except to rush us out the door because it was later in the evening on Sunday. I have always loved 50 Ocean and was really looking forward to seeing their new menu but the whole night left a bad impression.

Lobster bisque delicious but lukewarm bordering on cold. Entrees are well prepared but the prices of $35 and up are significantly overpriced for what you get.

 (Nashville)·Dined on February 11, 2018

Had an unpleasant experience. The valets were uncommunicative when we pulled in. Our server was nice, however the appetizers came out at different times and we had to request the final one as the fourth person in our party sat there with nothing . We ordered our entrees and a few minutes later the server returned to tell us that they no longer had Grouper. Three people in our party had ordered it. This is understandable and we reordered. One entree which were scallops came out barely warm. On departure the valets were once again inarticulate.
I have not previously ever written a review. We obviously were very disappointed despite the fact the food when we got it, was pretty good.

Have eaten brunch here many times. Dinner was disappointing. It started with the air conditioning leaking and blowing directly on us. When we moved tables and the ambience and the comfort was much better. The menu was limiting however the food we did have was decent. The best part was our waiter was fantastic!

I asked for my pasta dish to have very.. very little sauce and it came with a large amount of sauce.. seems like the chef wasn’t listening... also the waiter gave our table the wrong caeser salad... he mixed up our table with another that didnt want croutons or anchovies... we brought it to the waiters attention...

Sorry did not enjoy. So many other good restaurants in the area I’d skip this. The bread was awesome and delicious. Decor and setting is nice. That’s it. The menu is weird and descriptions don’t help much. Coconut grouper app had such heavy breading you almost need a buzz saw to open it. Pina colada mojito extremely sugary and gooey. Ordered lobster roll for 35 dollars. Ton of lobster in it but not fresh or buttery as expected. Tasted frozen. Came with small Caesar salad featuring special croutons and white anchovy. Tasteless worst Caesar salad ever. One anchovy. No croutons. We won’t be back. Oh, really hate the fact that there are glass tables hard to keep clean and no placemat or anything under your table setting. They need it. Dishes clink and sweat on the table.

Disappointed in the Ora King Poached Salmon. Firstly, we as consumers and frequent diners know that the tail section is the less choice portion of the fish and never served in a better restaurant. Secondly, you can’t eat a garnish like the couscous which was barely sprinkled on the entree and the blackberry shrub, buttermilk whip, watercress gel. The description suggests that all these items accompany the entree and most would think these items complete the meal. They are exclusively a garnish for decoration.
Poorly thought out. I should have returned this entree to the kitchen

My husband and I have enjoyed the weekend brunch at 50 Ocean several times. The wait staff has always been very helpful and fun to chat with. We enjoy choosing from the great menu and like the new additions. The endless mimosas make a weekend brunch most enjoyable! We look forward to our next meal at 50 Ocean..

When we arrived for breakfast I requested a window seat. I was told it should have been noted in my open table reservations. Even though there were plenty of tables available. We were seated away from the window.
Our food was cold when it arrived at the table. The server was gracious enough to get 20% off of our bill.
The food may have been good if it was warmer. No offer was made to correct the situation other than give a discount.

I came down to Delray Beach from NY to help celebrate my mother's 86th birthday. We love this restaurant and always visit when I am here. The wait staff is wonderfully friendly and professional, the cocktails and food delicious (fish tacos and tuna salad this trip), and a free dessert for my mom (they were out of chocolate cake so we shared beignets). The view is beautiful, right across from the ocean. As long as the restaurant is there, I'll be back.

We loved this restaurant! at first is was a bit hard to find it as it happened to be on the second floor of Boston on the Beach, but once we took the elevator and entered the restaurant we found a quiet great place to have dinner.
We went to Delray Beach for a few days and this is definitely the best restaurant we dined in. The ambiance is great, romantic, quiet, and the food is delicious! great service as well!

food was great service was poor. the hostess left us standing by a table for five minutes checking to see if we could sit at this table and when she came back it was no. the waitress questioned my wife why she did not want spicy sauce. then she has the nerve to say that the chef prefers you have it with the sauce on it. he can eat it any way he wants.

Recent dinner on Sunday night Es good but definately not exceptional. The octopus appetizer that the server recommended was well seasoned but very chewy- I personally did not eat it. Everyone shared it but there were no rave reviews! The little gem salad was nice and light. Crab crusted grouper was good but pricey- crab was shredded not lump and the blood orange buerre blanc was a little too sweet for me. One person disliked there snapper entree and the other diners had shrimp with andouille alligator sausage. They were disappointed in the slight presence of the sausage- expecting slices not tiny dice. Bread was good but we had to ask for more and service was spotty with water glasses not being filled regularly. If the prices were somewhat lower I would probably go back but dinner should be perfect when you are spending $100pp with tax and tip

Went wit the lobster roll. Abundant portion, more lemon than I would add to my lobster.

Our service could have been better, our server was ill informed on the new menu, I had to read one of the entrees to him. Then when we ordered dessert and cappuccino he lied and told us the reason the cappuccino was so late in coming was because the machine had to be turned on and heated up. We had to tell the manager he did make it right by taking it off the bill. That is my biggest beef. Serve the coffee with dessert together.
