My husband and I loved out cocktails and my family enjoyed their fine red bottle of wine $100+. The menu is small and could use some more choices: seafood, duck, trendy?The appetizers especially needed some zest. I enjoyed my generous rack of lamb 9$42)and my husband enjoyed his hogfish. Hanger steak and ribsteak($42) were nicely presented. Prices are high but... More

Five stars for Nick Morfogen as probably the most creative chef in Del Ray, but two stars for the dingy, dark dining room with institutional furniture and an old, bare feeling. Why don't the owners or he make it as much a pleasure to walk in as to enjoy his creations? A saving grace are the outside tables: stylish black... More

We've been going to this restaurant since it was the only one worth going to in Delray. Our group of 9 were not greeted at the table very promptly, and it seemed like forever to get the first drink. When our waiter finally did come to the table, he spilled a vase with some water in it which neither he... More

If your in town for a short time 32 East is worth the time. Everything is ala carte. But the food is delicious. The service isn't all that great. Good bar & music . Outdoor seating available . It's a fun place.

Went there for New Years eve. We sat upstairs. The service was by far the worst I have ever had in a restaurant. The server was rude to me and my family including my 13 year old daughter. Here is an example of the treatment that night... my daughter asks for a soda, it finally comes and is all ice,... More

Adequate food, very good service, just to pricey for most people. Even on an expense account it is way too much. $14 per martini, 35 plus dishes, and the have the nerve to charge $8 for a small plate of lettuce. The bread was not good either.

It started with the wine, then the bread. By then I was hooked. When we got the entree, I looked at my husband and said, "Just so you know, I'm going to eat every bit of this meal." This is rare, because I often don't finish restaurant meals. We had the red snapper, seriously the best I've every had. Just... More

A very professional well run restaurant with excellently prepared and nicely served food. A great selection of half bottle wines to complement food choices. This daily menu has something for everyone and the presentation was perfect. No rushing your dinner, so two hours goes a very long way in accenting the ambiance. Truly an eclectic experience!

This was not our first visit to 32 East in Delray Beach. We live in Delray and are fortunate to have many great restaurants close by. We have never been disappointed with dining at 32 East. They have an excellent chef and the food is always outstanding. Service has always been consistently good too. We are not big eaters, so... More
