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.

  • Unexpected delight on Singer Island

    We found 3800 Ocean through Flavors of Palm Beach. After comparing the restaurants and the menu choices for the Prix Frixe menus, we decided to try it. We're glad we did. The staff was friendly, approachable, and helpful. The food was creative, attractively presented, and served at proper timing- not rushed. The staff was outstanding, adding greatly to this being an enjoyable evening. Flavors of Palm Beach runs through the month of September, so this would be a good time to try at reduced prices.

    Enjoyed our dining experience with an ocean view! Food was very unique - the chefs put together a very interesting menu with different, subtle flavors that we really enjoyed. It's a great place to try something new. We had a wonderful, lively server (Gustavo, I think?) who was very attentive. Enjoyed our night very much.

    I am 21 and I brought my girlfriend here for our two year anniversary and it was outstanding. We had very professional and elegant service with a very elegant table setting. We had a great view of the water. The gave us complimentary champagne because they knew it was our anniversary and the food was amazing. We shared the sweet and sour lobster. It was one of the best things I have ever tasted. It is pretty expensive but it is worth it if you are looking for a place to eat for a special occasion. Not your normal drop in for lunch kind of restaurant.

    Had requested table by window and told it would be no problem but were offered another table. Told we would have to wait for window table which we did. Ordered drinks at bar. Our table became free while waiting for drinks. Bar tender provided wonderful service by personally bringing our drinks to table. Our orders for salad and request for bread taken and server disappeared for a very long time. When she finally reappeared she was surprised we had not gotten any food yet. Our salads did finally arrive, followed a few minutes later by bread. The food was wonderful. We both had scallops and were not disappointed. Overall, hostess needed further training, bar service wonderful, server fair, but food, view, and atmosphere fantastic!

    This is a hotel restaurant and the kitchen is very exposed to the dining room making the big room echo with kitchen noise. Our staff was helpful, but the food just did not meet our expectations. The room is so big and it lacks any kind of warmth. This place feels too institutional to be a good choice for local diners. If you are staying at the hotel it is fine. But as local part-time residents, we would not go there again.

    My girlfriend and I celebrated her birthday over dinner at 3800 ocean. The food was very good. Mary had the Caribbean "Blaff" which included local snapper, shrimp, calamari, clams and island vegetables in a scotch bonnet broth and I had the scallops - both were wonderful. Our waiter took note of the fact that it was Mary's birthday and was very generous with the wine "pours" and brought a nice birthday dessert on the house. 3800 Ocean is in nice setting rigth by the beach.

    Excellent cuisine. What I most like about this restaurant is that they have 5 chefs from different backgrounds and training which makes the menu exciting and different. Everything is cooked to perfection, and the desserts are to die from. They also have a chefs table, which can't wait to book. I defiantly recommend this restaurant.

    This is the Marriott Singer Island hotel restaurant, but the standards are way above average for Marriott. In fact, if staff didn't wear Marriott name tags, you'd likely for get you were in a hotel, except for the fact many families dine here with small children. Couples can find a romantic corner and should not be discouraged however. Food preparation is contemporary and solidly executed in a bustling open kitchen. Wine list is ample and cocktails well made. The restaurant is one of the features that keeps us coming back to hotel year after year.

    We made reservations here for my mom's birthday and were SO satisfied. The menu was very different and it was really interesting to see several chefs all working there at the same time. They just re-did the menu about a week ago and added new options. I got a fish called Cobia, which I had never heard of before and it was delicious (similar to Mahi). I also got a crab cake for appetizer and it was excellent. My table got the spare ribs, a lobster/seafood pasta, and beef tenderloin, which were all amazing. They had a special dessert made for my mom and a candle for us to sing to her as well. I would definitely return here next time in West Palm. Service/staff was also great!
