A word from 3800 Ocean
We call it the “collective kitchen.” For the menus of 3800 Ocean are inspired not only by the local abundance of South Florida’s renowned crops that thrive under a hospitable climate, but by the regional flavors that stir the souls of our collaborative team of chefs. Each chef brings a new insight to the table: the comfort food favorites of New England; the fire and spice of Mexico; the Caribbean traditions of Jamaica; and the ageless classics of Long Island. Our own local abundance of fresh produce and seafood allows us to take the collective kitchen dining concept quite literally. Everything is made from scratch. Every taste evokes an emotional connection to a past culinary memory, or perhaps a future craving.

    We are at 3800 during the week as part of the September Flavorpb $35 3 course dinner. Service was great. Beautiful view. Loved the curry mussels and duck streusel as starters. Enjoyed the pork medallions with braised red cabbage and spaetzle. The orecchiette pasta had a good sauce. The reason for the 4 stars was the disappointing dessert. We both ordered the banana toffee tart. Lacking in flavor. We now wished we had at least ordered one of the cheesecake desserts to try. Flavor menu excellent value given the regular menu prices.

    Dined on 9/20/2014
    I dined here because of the promotion "Flavor of Palm Beach" held throughout September. The food and service was excellent; drinks kinda pricey. Somewhat a surprise came with the check however, because it included an 18% 'Service Charge'. I queried the waiter about this charge. He said they often do this when running a special. He said he could get removed if I wanted. Thinking this was a suggested tip, I said "No, it's OK". When he later returned credit card charge for signature that statement also included a line for 'Tip'. Needless to say I did not leave a 'Tip", but annotated the 'Service Charge' as being the Tip.

    One of our favorite restaurants. Not your"usual" fare. Menu is creative. We did a "taste of Palm Beach Prix Fixe" menu. The appetizers were good, but not memorable. The Pork Medallions with Spaetzle and Red Cabbage may have been the BEST entree I've had in some time. The desserts were pathetic.

    Hopefully the chef was just having an off night when I was there. The restaurant is beautiful, lovely location. First course was the yellowtail tuna Carpaccio. Very good. I ordered lamb and for some reason it was never cooked correctly. First time ordered medium, thinking it would come more on the rare side, full blown well done. I sent it back. Second time one chop was rare, one was raw. Very disappointing. Hopefully the chef will get it together.

    We have been coming here for years. This is a lovely Marriott property. Our waitress knew NOTHING about the menu. Her reply to the first item was so vague the dish sounded unappetizing. She knew nothing about the second dish or third. Our first appetizer mussels had 14 mussels, 4 of them were not open or broken which means there spoiled. Were offered a free drink. We decline. The food & beverage manager arrives. His chef should not have allowed food to be served that was spoiled. I let him know the manager was to blame for our experience. He apologizes & sends more mussels He offers drinks or dessert. We decline. salads over dressed. One entree was over powered with vinegar, the other was good except for the mussels and clams.

    Love the decor. The bar is small and it took a bit to get service but the drinks were made very well. They were very pricey drinks though. We had a reservation and were seated on time. The lighting was perfect and furniture comfortable. We were seated by the window and the view was gorgeous despitte the weather not being the best. The wait staff gave us time to go over the menu. The food was AMAZING! We ordered a pasta and a fish. Both were cooked to absolute perfection. The portions were generous and we couldn't even finish our complete meals. It took a while to get our check even after it was requested. Overall, our experience was a fantastic one and we will definitely come again. The service s old score an 8 out 10, the food an 11!

    I took my sister to 3800. She was visiting from New York and she was amazed and loved her experience! We chose the lounge for a more relaxed setting and the food was great. We had the carrot hummus which was a great spin on traditional hummus, served with their homemade flat bread and fresh veggies. We also enjoyed the short rib and truffle flatbread which is large enough to share between 2-3 people. We enjoyed their Korean BBQ wraps; 3 scallion pancakes with "Korean style" bbq beef and kimchi. Absolutely flavorful and tender. We also enjoyed the tempura crab cakes. They were unexpectedly light with a thin tempura, not thick and greasy as one might imagine. Everything was divine as I expected and I will be sure to return as I always do.

    We looked forward to dining at 3800ocean on a recent visit to Florida. The space is lovely and the servers are great but the menu was such a disappointment. We had looked at three weeks earlier when we were planning our trip and making reservations and it looked great. However, when we arrived the menu had been completely changed. There was not as much seafood as you would expect from a place called"Ocean". The dishes all seemed to try too hard to be something very creative and ended up coming off as just too much. Good basics with a flair might have been the intent, but it missed the mark.

    Had dinner at 3800 with my husband in the hopes of enjoying some fresh seafood and a nice evening out together. The food was decent but somewhat bland. Biggest complaint was the total lack of ambiance in the restaurant. The place was ridiculously loud. It wasn't clear whether the high ceilings translated to poor acoustics or whether the loud families and groups were to blame. Either way, it was a bit of a shame because my husband and I couldn't even have a conversation over dinner. It is a hotel restaurant so I guess seeing small, disobedient children in a place where the average entree prices run around $25 to $35 is to be expected? Normally, we would have stayed for a post-dinner cocktail but our heads were spinning from the noise.

    Initial service was great, but had to wait way too long to make a drink order. Lovely place; fabulous view. There were many servers and we were helped by at least 5 but with all that attention, service was agonizingly slow. When I arrived I told them I had an Open Table reservation. They were expecting us and seated us right away. We enjoyed the food immensely but were bothered by the inadequate service. When we got home, I had received an email from Open Table saying that the restaurant had canceled my reservation. I called the restaurant and was advised that they do not participate in Open Table. I contacted Open Table and they made good on the points. Irksome situation. Go for the food and ambiance don't expect good service.

    Fantastic view, atmosphere, food and staff! I was looking for a place overlooking the ocean to have a small lunch party for my mom's birthday. 3800 Ocean turned out to be it! The staff was VERY accommodating. The food and custom cake they provided was amazing and affordable. The sandwiches were all delicious - great salads too. We had their pastry dept bake the cake for us... and it was... AMAZING...ONE OF THE BEST CAKES I'VE EVER HAD! Their event planner, pastry chef and our waiter were all very attentive. They all made the event so beautiful and my mom loved it! I highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion (whether it be a lunch/dinner for two, a party, a wedding, etc.,) and plan on booking reservations again very soon.

    This was a meal we had the first night of our vacation. Well, it really spoiled us for everything else. It is not cheap, but the dollars you will spend are WORTH IT! Our server was wonderful, very friendly & attentive, but gave us plenty of time to talk each other & enjoy the experience. The food was excellent and perfectly plated. We made a reservation for 5 pm on an early January evening, & watched the ocean and beach from a completely unobstructed view. The windows face east, but when the sun set, we were treated to a beautiful pink sky with reflections off the clouds. For dinner, we enjoyed the feta/watermelon salad, followed by the local snapper and cobia entrees for dinner. Our waiter suggested the bottle of wine, which was excellent.

    Service was very slow at the beginning while we were waiting to give our drink orders but it became much better as the evening progressed and the quality of the food more than made up for the slow start. The food was exceptional and we enjoyed the Flavor of Palm Beach special the restaurant was participating in for September and especially enjoyed the filet and the peach salad.
