I must say from the time that you are greeted you know your in for a treat. The staff are super friendly and attentive. Sweet potato fries are amazing! The atmosphere of the regulars and visitors were welcoming. The seating at the booths are so comfy you do not want to leave. Do not miss out on this experience.

Being members at the Club we have dined here several times, so we knew our "favorites"!!!!! The herb-crusted filet has ALWAYS been one of the best we have ever eaten!!! The quality of the meat is superb, cooked to perfection as ordered, served hot, not one piece of gristle or fat, and the seasoning makes it even better!!!!!! This time, however, instead of being served hot, it was LUKE-WARM!!!!! The Sea-salt fries (another of our favorites) have ALWAYS been served hot and fresh, soooo good! Yesterday they were not hot or even fresh tasting, maybe as if they had been sitting for a while!!! What Happened???? The serving staff was fine, no complaints there, and our seating arrangement, in a booth, so we could visit and have a serious discussion with our friends, was PERFECT!!!!! Did not want to complain about the food in front of our friends as we were trying to enjoy their company (and maybe impress them as well with the Club). Maybe the time of day 7:30 PM (after a very busy Happy Hour) had the chef a little overwhelmed at the time. Will certainly try again, though!!!!

My family dined here on our recent visit to the Boca Raton Resort. The food, service, beer, and wine were all very good. Three at the table ordered the ribs, and the consensus was that they were among the best ribs they have had. (I personally do not eat them and did not try them.)

The calamari appetizer was very good, top 25% in my experience. The guacamole was fair--and very expensive for the serving size.

My wife and I split fish tacos and grilled, fresh swordfish, and we both liked both dishes very much. The beer selection is excellent and varied, unusual for this area (IMO), and the wines by the glass were also good and not too steep.

We would dine here again in the future.

We loved our dinner at 501 East! The atmosphere is great- very modern, nice lighting, etc (we sat in a booth, which was really kind of like a private room- so cool!). And the food was amazing!! We had the guacamole to start, which was great but which we later regretted ordering, since the rest of the food was so delicious! For entrees we had the Sonoma salad, killer mac and cheese and chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries. Everything was amazing!! The service was also great. Our experience was so good that we made a reservation on our way out for dinner on another night of our 3-night trip!

Interesting menu with a lot of choices at a good value. I ordered the chicken and it was cooked to perfection, juicy inside, crisp outside. The mashed potatoes were great, the wine list extensive.
