Good place to dine.

I like the restaurant. The food is good. I know they use fresh seasonal foods. But to me, that causes the only downside, I think that's why their menu is small and very limited in selection.

The food is amazing with a "daily" menu which guarantees freshness. The staff is knowledgable and ALL are friendly and welcoming. If you want to have a party- GREAT upstairs with balcony. It is a little pricey, but not when you see the size portions and taste the quality.

I would give 32 East another try, but manage my expectations. We ordered the locally raised and very expensive steak, which was fairly spongey and tasteless. However the pasta with veal ragu was incredible; perfectly cooked and complex. The waiter was great, as was the somm.

Disappointed but will give them benefit of the doubt as we have experienced this restaurant in the past and truly enjoyed it.

Being a Delray Beach resident in my opinion this is the best restaurant on the Ave. Butch Johnson is a hands on owner that greets his guests personally. Their menu changes every night because the food is bought fresh everyday. They do not have a freezer here so everything is fresh. The bar is rich dark tones with a comfortable... More

If we happen to be in Delray Beach for birthdays, anniversaries or any other special occasion, this is our go-to place. The menu changes daily depending on the local offerings. We've had everything from chicken to scallops to antelope. Delicious! They offer interesting sauces and veggies. They have a good wine list and bottle beer, along with a full service... More

The menu changes daily, which is great. The food was good, not great. My salad was overdressed but tasty. Swordfish good, although a bit dry even though I asked that it be cooked moist. Sitting outdoors was enjoyable. Located in the heart of Atlantic Ave.

32 East continues to offer a world class dining experience, in my opinion the best on Atlantic Ave. The woody dining room is as warm and comfortable as ever, and the bar makes fantastic pre-meal cocktails. The menu changes daily. Highlights of my recent visit included a succulent bbq pork belly appetizer and a pan roasted black grouper. A thick... More
