“32 East - Eat, Drink and Be Merry- ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

While on a couples get away on Highland Beach, FL we heard raves reviews about 32 East so we knew we had to check it out for ourselves. We are glad we did. We had Mussels to write home about, a real Cobb Salad(we ordered extra sardines), a peach martini and a Manhattan(my husband said it was the best he's had).
Our waitress extraordinaire, Leslie is top drawer!

“Unbelievable food!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

We were visiting Delray Beach for the first time and stayed with our friends at their condo. They took us to this wonderful restaurant because his cousin had married the chef's cousin. They had never met before last week at the restaurant. And I'm glad that we went. It was by far the best food we ever ate. We all ordered the steak (2 seven and 2 fourteen ounce). They were cooked perfectly and also came with the most delicious sides (which were included). Chef Morfogen was kind enough to send a pasta dish to our table on the house. This was also the best pasta dish I've ever eaten out of my own home. It was light and cooked al dente, just the way we like it.

“Great steak & service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

I had a fabulous meal here with my husband and friend. The menu is always changing so it's fun to try new things. The wine list was good. The only negative was my vodka and tonic was mostly ice..next time I will stick with wine. Our server is very helpful in fact when she found out that we drove doen ( all of 25 min.) from Jupiter..she suggested a new restaurant in Jupiter that is very similar to this one..fresh farm changing menus.
We will be back again.

“Great Restaurant in trendy part of Delray - Fresh food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

We visited for dinner on a Saturday night, the atmosphere is dressier than casual, not the normal beach attire. There is also valet available, as parking is difficult in that part of town. The menu and specials list was amazing, with a wide variety, Options included a lot of fresh seafood options, as well as pastas, steaks, etc. Our service was great. There was an extensive wine list with options for all budgets. For an appetizer we ordered the calamari, which came with a mango salsa, we really enjoyed it. For main courses we ordered a pasta with a pork bolloiinaise sauce. This was delicious! you can order it in an appetizer or entree size. We also had the grouper, this was delicious and super fresh. Overall we had a great experience and would highly recommend it to anyone in the area.
