This is a great restaurant with the rare and idealistic quality of actually being chef driven. The menus always change here, weekly, and one is always guaranteed to find inventive, creative dishes. Once in a while a combination will not be stellar...but at least the effort is there and there are two factors to this: (1) got to reward the chef for experimentation (if you want meat and potatoes..and predictability, go to one of the hundred steak joints in all of south fl), and (2) even if the dish flavor combinations do not come out stellar, you are sure to be able to appreciate the fresh and top notch ingredients involved. My recommendation are the pastas - they taste homemade, are always served al dente, and the sauces are made with tender loving care. I still remember a carbonara with a pork ragu that was out of this world ! Wine list is very interesting - I like the Spain Albarino white or the AtoZ Pinot Noir.
The food is delicious. No question there. It's just the place is so stuffy and pretentious. I feel like I have to whisper to whoever I am with. But if that's your kind of place then you will definitely enjoy this one!
I heard a lot about 32 East for a loong time. When we finally tried it, it was good, but we thought it would be better. The food was fantastic, the service was good, but the atmosphere wasn't that great.
I dine out often. My favorite restaurant is Morton's, Boca Raton. I thought my second favorite was 32 East. However, after dining there on my birthday, this past Saturday, I doubt I'll ever eat there again. Outback Steakhouse puts the fillet, for $36, to shame. Also, I specified MEDIUM RARE and got MEDIUM WELL. The scallops wrapped in bacon, on the other hand, tasted like something that would be served at Apple Bees. In addition, the waiter practically rushed us out of the packed and uncomfortable restaurant after returning our credit card. A very BAD experience.....
I have dined here 8-10 times over the past 8 years and have never been disappointed. The menu is varied and unusual; the food supreme. Parking is a poroblem in Delray but I agree a first class restaurant shouldn't charge for this convenience. Drinks are splendid. Once brought a friend from Cape Cod who is a restraunteur and very skeptical of other restaurants, bu he was similarly impressed. A place not to be missed!
The service, food, ambience, everything is the best. One of things that makes it so unique is that the menu changing daily, so if you frequent it like my boyfriend & I do we know that it wont be same thing over & over. If you haven't been there...you are definately missing out on an incredible evening of delicious & unique food & service.
This is the only restaurant I've found in florida so far that I can say is worth going to. The waiter/waitress are very attentive to you. Unlike other restaurant where you have to allot at least 2.5 hours for a simple dinner. This place, your order was taken, the food was there in a reasonable time, drinks the same.
The food is tasty (instead of bland). I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a good meal in delray beach
