Our first visit to 50 Ocean for dinner. Familiar with it as a regular at Savor the Avenue. Mussels and the Florida (?) Spiced Shrimp appetizers are exceptional! Meal was great. Service by Cooper and others was perfect, and still casual. Even a loud neighbouring table of dueling divorce stories could not spoil the evening. Thank you

Brunch Food was tasty. Eggs Benedict with crab. Bacon so thick any juicy. Endless mimosas yes please! Ceviche was bland. Chairs need reupholstering. If your charging that price why am I sitting in ripped worn out chairs?

Good food, but not special. Grouper was fresh and cooked fully (so not very moist) but crab topping was tasty. Wedge salad undistinguished. Service friendly, but seemed to be overloaded, as I didn’t see the wait person often and they forgot to bring bread during the entire meal (though all other tables got it.)

Wine by the glass was out of a caraf so don’t really know what you’re getting. My main issue was the ambiance. They are an upscale restaurant with an ocean view, but the restaurant is above a rather rough sports bar, the view at best is of the street, and the upstairs deck seating overlooks a busy outdoor bar with incredibly loud music. No conversation possible.

I’d pass. There are much better spots on Atlantic Ave a few blocks away.

I loved the phenomenal selection of wine. The server, Chantelle was wonderful and having the Chef come to the table was a very nice extra touch. The manager took care of the heater since we were eating outside and the wind picked up. Hope that I get back to visit this restaurant again. Oh, it was close to the Marriott Hotel, so we were in walking distance.

It was just ok, for my entree I had grouper with blue crab on top and some herbal quinoa, it was small and bland, nothing I would ever order again, especially for $36. The cheese plate for an appetizer was nice, but I’ve had better. Service was top notch though. The atmosphere was rather loud, I noticed many people from different tables just talking louder to converse with each other.

Not happy this time at 50 Ocean. We arrived and they stuck us out in the deck on a hot humid night and next door the music was blasting. We asked to be seated inside as there were open tables and they refused. The tables were still available when we left. It will be a long time before I go back.

My wife had the grouper, which she enjoyed but couldn't finish (large portion).

I had the scallops which were fresh, tasty and well prepared.

Both entres were in the $30+ range.

We shared a Caesar Salad which was $10. It was a single size portion in total, so a small salad to share (not a problem).

We shared a bottle of wine, one of the lower price options in the $35 range. Lots of good and pricey wines to choose from if you so desire (I prefer to bring my own premium wine and pay a corkage. Paying three times what I can buy the bottle for, plus a tip on top is just not for me).

The restaurant was kind enough to provide a complimentary desert as we were celebrating our 39th wedding anniversary.

The view of the ocean from our window table was very nice. Service was excellent.

We were celebrating our 5th anniversary. The location was chosen specifically for the view of the ocean. We had a window table that was prefect for our purpose.
The waitress was very cordial. My pasta dish was excellent (I'm Italian and fussy).
However, my woman friends chicken dish was fair at best. A bit disappointing!

We will still go again, but order differently.
Thanks for asking!

The food was excellent, as was the wine. The ambience and view were remarkable. We will definitely go back, even for a non special occasion.
