“I dare u to find a better restaurant!”
Reviewed August 22, 2011

We booked our reservation on Sunday because we read that they offered 50% off there bottled wines. Turns out that it's 50% off wines under $100 and $50 off any bottle over $100. The reservationist told us the dress code was "denim to diamonds" that made my husband happy , so he went in shorts. The wine list was amazing and the manager helped us throughout the selections and picked a perfect Pinot Noir. We were informed by our server that the menu is printed daily the offerings were diverse and exciting. This is a foodies paradise. Everything was perfectly prepared and delicious. We shared several appetizers and had half portion entrees. Service was friendly and professional. Do ur self a favor and eat there. We can't wait to go back!

“Amazing speared fish and more”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

We were staying with a group at the Boca Beach Club and fortunately there were enough cars to get the eight of us to 32 East which was highly recommended to us. Having read some negative reviews we were a little hesitant but our minds were quickly changed with the buy one get one free wine bottle deal and the perfectly prepared dishes, too numerous to mention here. I do recall several of us ordered the “speared” fish [I forgot which type] which meant that the fish was killed so quickly it didn’t have time to release the nervous toxins that a hooked on line fish releases as it fights the fisherman. Everyone raved about that and the other dishes. It was someone’s birthday so we asked the waiter for a suggestion. He brought out a platter of chocolate chip cookies and a dozen other assorted dessert delicacies -- everyone was amazed. The service was superb. Listen to the locals and ignore the negative reviews which are more than a year old anyway.

“Happen Place - Good Seafood”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

Make reservation especially during season. Limited street parking - so use municipal parking garage. Lot's to see after dinner...take a stroll down Atlantic Ave.

“Excellent, Unique Food...Good Scene”
Reviewed July 2, 2011

My wife and I both loved it! Food is delightfully unique. Excellent service. A must try in Boca/Delray. Menu changes every day but they are cool enough to e-mail you the day's menu around 2pm.

32 East offers the freshest, seasonal ingredients. With a menu that changes daily. I heart 32 east. Romantic, and classy. Stellar service with a old school dinner house vibe mixed with a trendy updated feel. Delicately prepared fresh seafood and amazing delish cuts of beef. Can't wait to go back. Don't miss out on this place!!
