“Energetic vs. Noisy”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

32 East is a fine restaurant... with very good food, service and ambiance... and is very energetic...(That is what is classified on the noise level as the hightest). If you are going out with friends to share a lovely meal and talk to one another... this is very difficult at 32 East.

I would go back, however I would prefer to eat outside on a lovely evening... with the fine food, service and ambiance and be able to talk to my friends.
Perhaps the owners might consider some acoustical tiles to muffle the energy to a more comfortable level... which will allow conversation .

“Great Food but Main Restaurant is too loud”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

The food there is a little pricey but portions are good and the food typically is delicious! I would reccomend sitting in the front part of the restaurant towards the bar because the back of the resturant, when packed is very loud.

“Good Meal”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

Kind of like a great contemporary steak house. Brother wanted a steak for his Bday so we went here. Menu is more expansive than your traditional steak house. Service was good. This plac has some class of its own and we felt comfy in a nice booth in the dimly lit dining room.

“Not our kind of place”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

We went back recently after not eating there for many years. Now I remember why we don’t go there. First I’m not a big fan of their menu. Some of the combinations and sides aren’t appealing to us as we try to eat healthy without sausage or bacon in the sides. Second, the food is overpriced and not worth what they charge. Additionally, it’s noisy and the service is just ok. Also, the night we were there the lights kept flashing on and off which even surprised the staff. There are better options in town for food and for the price. I too should have listened to some of the other prior reviews.
