    Positives: Sat outside and watched and heard the waves roll in. Food was delicious! Waiter was wonderful. Negatives: Because we sat outside we got eaten alive by mosquitoes when the sun went down. They were really bad!Not enough lighting outside-food tasted good, but could not see it! Ordered a cosmopolitan and it was cosmo mix and vodka-yuck. BUT-they made me a fresh squeezed lime margarita to replace it and that was very good!

    We specifically picked this restaurant for the outside dining. When we arrived we were told they couldn't handle a table of 5 outside! Too bad for us. They sat us at a nice corner table. The restaurant was freezing. The waiter was awkward with our questions regarding both the menu and the wine list. We chose a New Zealand Savignon Blanc and the waiter literally and outwardly cringed. It was wonderful with the seafood selection we chose, so my only guess is that it wasn't expensive enough for his taste. The risotto on the sides menu was not risotto at all but a rice pilaf. The scallops were wonderful however a bit of sand was detected. We are not heavy "eaters" so to us an entree is plenty. Mr. Awkward was not pleased.

    This was our first visit to this restaurant, which was for dinner. Staff was very welcoming. Despite a great oceanfront location, the ambience was missing. The hard surfaces and the overhead lighting gave the room a "dank" feeling. Not romantic or warm and relaxing. Maybe this is a better spot for lunch for beach goers instead of dinner. Part of my appetizer was refrigerator cold inside where it had not been heated thoroughly. The beef filet had no flavor. I would like to see this restaurant succeed, but there is room for improvement.

    619 never disappoints. The food is fantastic and the service spot on. Sitting inside or out you can enjoy a fantastic dining experience which includes a beautiful ocean view- something rare in Jacksonville. I know some day soon I am not going to be able to get a table here because the secret of 619 will be out.

    We were greeted by the hostess with a "happy anniversary" upon arriving and we were seated overlooking the beach. We noticed the menus were customized with our names and special occasion - another great service touch that helped to make our evening very special. The wine list was accessible in both price and taste. We started with the soup du jour - the crab bisque and it was fantastic. Mains arrived promptly and presented like a piece of art - perfect. The sea and land dish was a 5 ounce steak and a lobster tail that arrived overcooked. This was promptly corrected by the chef. Our only criticism, we expected valet service - as per the website and open table description. No service available.

    The menu is limited but kept fresh with the offerings. The bib salad was excellent, and other appetizers were well received. The entrees consisted of two scallops, one grouper, and one filet. All were excellent, and the two-side selections were varied and very well presented. Only complaint with the menu/philosophy...under entrees there is a lobster ravioli. One person ordered that and began to select their sides. Server told him that that particular entree doesn't come with sides. Being a little miffed, he switched his selection. WHY? No reason not to have two little sides with a listed entree. Just dumb for a finer dining experience. The brownie dessert was ordinary. The bread pudding with caramelized pecan topping was excellent.

    Have been going for quite some time on a regular basis, have endured the renovations to both décor and the menu (lots of changes recently), but, have finally decided it's time to take a long break from the restaurant and see if it will change, might try in 12 months or if I hear good things again. Portions have continuously shrunk and there's more effort on presentation (form) vs. the meal (substance). You take that change, along with an ever increasing pricing plan and just makes this one expensive place to go in order to capture that "ocean view" dining experience. Attached to the Marriott - so - the hotel traffic will probably keep it going, but, it's seemed slower of late when I've dined there so others may have noticed as well.

    We had not eaten here in years. Since then they have completely revamped their menu, all to the better. The lobster & 5 cheese raviolis, grouper and scallops were world case in imagination, ingredients and preparation. Our waitress, Susan, was knowledgeable about the menu and specials, courteous and readily available for assistance and questions, while remaining unobtrusive. This has now become our go-to restaurant for seafood and Oceanside dining in the South beaches area of Jacksonville.

    I made reservations for a special occasion and requested a window seat for the views. We were very fortunate to have our request granted and enjoyed peering at the Atlantic ocean during our meal. The scallops were fantastic, the shrimp cocktail was great. Highly recommend the brownie and ice cream for desert. Our server was attentive and enjoyable. Great Time.

    Found a new ocean view restaurant in Ponte Vedra, Fl. -- 619 Ocean View -- which is part of a cabana club. Food was very good -- menu consists mostly of fresh seafood but there are some nice selections for land lovers. Very nice ambiance with great ocean views. Inside and outside dining. Would definitely return and recommend.

    The view is spectacular in this beachside restaurant on Ponte Vedra Beach and the food and service were equally grand. The menu is creative using fresh caught seafood and in-season fruits and vegetables. If you are lucky enough to find it on the menu the Wahoo au Poivre is delicious . Don't miss the Brussel Sprout Coleslaw- perfectly balanced with dried strawberries and almonds and a light dressing. This is a real find and a reason to make Jacksonville a destination!

    My wife and I dined here for our first time to celebrate our anniversary. We had a great table for two by the windows facing the beach. Service from start to finish was top notch. We greatly enjoyed the mozzarella and balsamic flat bread and watermelon gazpacho soup of the day. My wife had a perfectly cooked and flavorful filet. I had grilled mahi, which was perfectly cooked. The sides were very good but the sliced fingerling potatoes were the star. For dessert we split a sea salt caramel brownie. The pop of the salt against the chocolate was a wonderful and fun compliment. We look very much forward to returning, not just for special occasions, but multiple times per year.

    We took our out-of-town guests to 619 Ocean, and it was EXCELLENT. This is the third time we've been here, and every time has been outstanding. The scallops were delicious, with just the right amount of light cream sauce. The grouper my husband had was a big hit. Our guests live in Miami, and they commented that this restaurant far surpasses some they've visited in their town - and the ocean view always makes for a pleasurable, relaxing evening. You won't be sorry!

    Our evening began as we were seated next to one of the windows with a beautiful view of the ocean. We shared a delicious Bibb salad, which was recently added. While 619 has a limited menu (size), everything I've ever had has been perfectly prepared, and tonight was no exception. My wife ordered the grouper and I had the salmon; both were wonderful. The fish, and their accompanying sides, orzo risotto, brussels sprout slaw, haricots vert and fingerling potatoes were all seasoned beautifully. Excellent, attentive service throughout, and a delightful dining experience.

    My husband and I dined here for our wedding anniversary. He immensely enjoyed the surf and turf, a filet minon and Maine lobster tail. Both were cooked to perfection. I chose the scallops, which were delicious and flavorful. Both came with 2 sides, I couldn't tell you what they were called but both were interesting and delicious. The seafood was extremely fresh and it's our understanding the menu changes frequently depending on what is available. The restaurant was comfortable and the staff friendly. As the name implies, there was a nice view of the ocean. We were late arriving so didn't get to enjoy much of the view, come early so you can. Our compliments to the chef.

    We had a party of 5 which became a part of 7. They changed the reservation without any problem at all. Our waiter was very attentive and if he was busy with another party, another waitress stepped in when the food was ready to be served. All orders were correct and we had one that was shared and it came already split which was very helpful. Most of us had fish which was very fresh. We were there for a long time and never felt pressured or hurried. Plenty of parking across the street which has a guard. Just tell them you are having dinner. Your can eat outside if you wish.

    619 is part of the Marriott Sawgrass. It is open to the public and located on the beach. Parking is free across the street. Just need to tell them why you are there. Incredible views overlooking the ocean. The styling of the restaurant is very modern. Very clean and neat. The food is very good, but I wouldn't rate it above that. Our group of 4 all ordered different things. Each of us enjoyed our meals. They gave good size portions of food - not large but appropriate. Prices are a little high. But when you consider the location, service and quality, I think it is appropriately priced. This is a great location for a special night out.

    First time here, we thought it was for Members Only! We were pleased to see it listed on Open Table, and we wanted some place with an ocean view. On Mother's Day they had Buffet service, with an Omelet Station with many selections, a Carving Station with Pork Loin and Prime Rib, along with breakfast choices, salads, sides and delicious deserts. The Prime Rib was cooked to perfection, we particularly enjoyed the King Crab Claws and the bottomless Champagne!! The staff was friendly and accommodating, and our server Kelly took good care of us. At the end of the meal each Mother was given a beautiful pink rose. We will definitely be back to sample the regular menu.
