I have been eating at this restaurant since it opened a long time ago. I have never had a bad meal or bad service. Sitting at the bar and watching the bartenders is like watching a well oiled machine. Top notch.

Had dinner with my GF last night at 32 East. It was my first time at this dining establishment. Lovely restaurant but a bit noisy. I had the grilled swordfish which was absolutely wonderful, server over potato puree with mushrooms and haricot vertes. Awesome. My GF had lamb chops that were quite good. Delicious appetizer of penne with tomato rue and braised beef. Truly special. The waiter tried but was having a rough night. What makes this restaurant special is that everything is fresh. They Do Not Have Any Freezers except for the ice cream..and try to use as many local products as possible. Definitely worth a visit..Very extensive seafood menu as well as the usual steaks.

This is a very nice restaurant with probably the best chicken we have ever had unfortunately the noise level was too loud for us. We were 7 at a nice round table with a wonderful waitress but we could not hear each other speak. Perhaps this restaurant would be better on a non vacation week or on a weekday. Or better yet try to sit outside.

Yes, it's expensive. So what, you get value for your dollar. Service is well executed and personable, food is outstanding, atmosphere buzzes. Fantastic steaks.

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 .
