We vacation at Delray Beach every winter where there is no shortage of good restaurants. However, we can't wait to get back to the sophisticated, yet casual, 32 East to savor the chef's latest creations! The food and service are always exceptional and the chef often changes the locally harvested menu keeping it creative. 32 East is the best restaurant... More

We came to Delray Beach specifically to attend a private birthday party for friend who is a winemaker in Napa Valley. We had the whole upstairs which has a full service bar. The bartenders were wonderful and as all of us oenophiles brought wines to open they did a great job pouring for us. The servers for the event were... More

To quote my friends whom I took there "the best meal they have ever eaten". They have dined all over the world and could not stop raving about the appetizers they had, baked melon wrapped in prosciutto, Pizza with vegetables and ricotta cheese, the entrées of swordfish and glazed pork shoulder and desert. My wife and I have been coming... More

I have eaten here several times and have enjoyed myself each visit. Great location, right on the Avenue in Delray Beach. I strongly suggest the Stone Crab appetizer when they are in season (with Key Lime Mustard). As far as, Main Course: The Grouper, Mahi-Mahi, and Stripped Bass are great. They also prepare their Lamb nicely too. Desert, I suggest... More

We went here after a business meeting with some friends. We were treated like royalty. The food was ridiculously wonderful! We had the mushroom pizza, beet salad :) the tile fish and filet and they were all cooked to perfection! I highly recommend this place.

Your positive review of our restaurant pleases us deeply. In much the same way that general citizens want guests to their home for dinner to totally enjoy themselves, this is also the way we approach our business. We desire that everyone completely enjoy themselves every day and night of the year when they visit. Thank you for the kind remarks. More

We always dine at 32 East one night when we are in Delray for the weekend. The service is excellent, the food is delicious and the cocktails (especially the Corpse Reviver!) are well worth a try. Consistently a good dining experience here - definitely a recommend :-)

Decent pizza appetizer. Crab cakes were ok. My steak was over cooked. The sides were eh. Nothing special. The bartender was nice and steered me to a good merlot. The vibe is cool and the location is great. Personally I wouldn't go out of my way to go back. This is my experience.

Since its opening, 32 East has become a mainstay and distinguished itself by its culinary excellence. Meat or seafood, the Chef and his staff always find new ways to please and excite our palate. Menu items are too many to mention, but once you taste a steak here, you will not go anywhere else.

If you want one fine dining experience while on vacation, this is the one to pick. Make your reservation a week in advance if you can and get ready for a treat equal to the best. The chef (owner) decides on the menu after morning shopping so you have the freshest Fruits & Vegetables.
