Consistently good food and service, great people watching

My wife and I had dinner at 32 East last Saturday. We've been there many times before, but this is my first review. Both the food and service have always been very good, sometimes excellent. I would actually rate 32 East somewhere between 4 and 5 if I could. 32 East has outdoor seating along... read more

This is our second time dining at 32 East and we were not disappointed. Starting with a liquor menu and a bourbon list that delighted my husband our entire meal was superb. Adrienne our server was wonderful and very knowledgeable of the menu (which changes daily) My husband had the snapper and I had 2 starters for my meal, the... More

This restaurant has been around for a while. Menu changes every day keeping selections fresh and interesting. We enjoyed the bacon wrapped figs with Brie and scallops with purée and green beans. Dessert menu is short with over active items ( a bit too much). Service was ok but undistinguished. The big issue: tables very close. As I sat enjoying... More

I've dined at 32 East numerous times for business and special occasions. For me it's a real treat to go here because it's a higher priced restaurant, especially when there are plenty of other great places to dine on the Ave that are not so expensive. I went to dinner with a good friend to celebrate her birthday and she... More

Chef Nick Morfogen is a genius. He does the farm to table concept without crowing about it. The menu changes daily and the scallops are amazing no matter how they prepare them and the caesar salad is just fresh and amazing. It is too dark for my liking; feels like a Houston's which is not what I would look for... More

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
