PLEASE CALL DIRECTLY FOR RESERVATIONS -

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.

Food and experience was great as always but they changed the pool access from public if you eat at the restaurant to hotel guests only, which I felt isn't the best call and certainly defeats half the purpose of why I come here every month or so.

This place is amazing. One of the best views in Palm Beach. Right on the ocean. And the food is amazing. Creative seafood mainly. I'd recommend the seafood boil. Perfect spot for a date night and we'll be back again.

The service was a little spotty. They were probably a little understaffed, though frankly it wasn't that busy. Our waitress was very pleasant, but not too available. My wife ordered an orchiette pasta dish that was very heavy and salty. It was rather dark in the outside seating area. People around us were using cell phone flashlights to see the menu and their food. The hotel looked very nice, but honestly I wouldn't use the restaurant again.

Okay, I'm not one to complain, but we were the first party in the restaurant, I requested an ocean view and was awarded the best seat in the house.

HOWEVER, the next party that was seated had a toddler with them - the hostess sat them next to us (the only party in the restaurant at that time). Meanwhile there were more than 10 other ocean view tables that would not be next to my wife and I on our vacation date night.

Quality front of house staff is hard to find, I understand as a past restaraunteer, but this was inexcusable. The toddler stood on her chair and was either singing or screaming loudly for the entire duration of our meal and dessert.

Poor planning on hostesses part and spoke to the manager and I could just tell he couldn't have cared less on the professional criticism.

Oh, well - won't' be going back there next time we are staying with Marriott.

We went there for a romatic birthday celebration on a Tuesday. The food was "good", the ambience GREAT, but the service lackluster. I also found it to be WAY overpriced for what it was. Drinks are a FORTUNE and the food is way more expensive than I felt warranted.

Went to restaurant sat down at a table outside. My wife sat down on a chair cushion which was all wet from who knows what. Her pants were so wet we had to leave. Never ate dinner. Had to go back to our hotel so my wife could change and go to another restaurant. Waiter was apologetic but did not send manager over or offer us any compensation for our trouble.

Our server was really poor. She was rude, never introduced herself and (when she was actually around our table) had no problem interrupting our conversation by literally sneaking up to us and interjected whatever she felt like she needed to tell us. It was the first time in a long time, I contemplated not leaving a tip.

Bottom line: Unless you love waiting unreasonably long time for your food and hearing a disheveled waitress making idiotic excuses in broken English, stay away from this one.

We showed up to a pleasant looking restaurant with great beach view. Sat at our table and immediately noticed that despite passing a fairly impressive wine cellar we weren't given a wine list. When the waitress finally showed up looking disheveled and confused, she looked like she was serving burgers on the beach with a cheap notepad. She was surprised that we didn't get a wine list but then came back to the table once more without it. Third time a charm, we got the wine list and did not take any chances but rather ordered the entire meal, apps and main dishes at once. Then we waited... finally the appetizer showed up.... it was great.... then we waited.... nobody came to clear the dishes from the appetizer..... we waited some more and the main courses showed up..... I helped by moving the appetizer dishes around, just like you do in any upscale restaurant. Right?.... the main dishes were excellent, I won't lie..... actually they almost made up for the sloppy service..... encouraged we naively decided to have dessert.... what a mistake..... we waited, we waited, in the meantime we asked for the check (figuring the desserf will come with the check), we waited some more and then our disheveled waitress showed up again with the check.... no dessert yet. We decided to leave without it.... needless to say. we won't be back.

We hosted an office lunch here on Tuesday, Sept the 18th. The food was great and so was the view. If I have one complaint, it would be that service was a little slow. Reservations at 12 and we didn't get out until 2. A little long for a work lunch, but when you have the boss with you, it's all ok :)

Went for Flavor of Palm Beach. Beautiful restaurant & view, and great service by Al our waiter & his assistant. The food was AMAZING! We all LOVED the lobster chowder. Party of 4 ... 2 of us got the steak tip salad wedge, 2 for the fried chicken. Both delicious! 2 got the key lime dessert, 2 the chocolate creme brûlée. Both these desserts were exceptional.

We went for the fixed price special. We were disappointed with the entree selections and the descriptions. The main portions were very small and the desserts were not satisfying. The cost with tax and tip and drinks was very pricey for what we got. The service was, however, wonderful and the view of the ocean was beautiful.

Awesome experience!!!

I didn’t realize the restaurant was in a hotel itself but there was valet, of which the host validated at the end of our meal. The ambiance was great. The staff was very attentive and super nice. There was not a lot to choose from on the menu but the quality and flavor was most certainly there, it was superb!!! I was very pleased with my experience and I would come back again.

The new chef is killing it at 3800 ocean. One of the best meals we’ve had locally. The kale and Brussels salad w/ his spin on green goddess dressing was nothing short of divine. The grilled octopus was spicy and daring but very good as well. My wife absolutely loved the burrata and her chicken both of which were uniquely prepared and worthy of praise. Wine list is pretty good too. We found a great bottle of chard and a few reds we enjoyed. This is a must try spot for anyone local or, staying in the hotel. Right now they’re even offering a price fixed 3 course w/ flavor palm beach that all of the above items were on! Yum

Only downside was the number of diners. FYI parking is free at the hotel for dinner...

Like much of the fine dining options we’ve found in the West Palm Beach area, it has left us a bit disappointed. We expected this area of Florida to have a lot of great seafood, but I guess we’ve been spoiled by our favorite, Charleston SC.

I don’t understand the bad reviews I almost canceled after I read those reviews how ridiculous I think people are getting crazier because this place gave us ultimate service,we sat with a great Oceanview they were attentive ,the food was delicious my husband had the fish I had a pasta dish we had dessert and coffee ,the cappuccinos were amazing the appetizers were great I just don’t understand the bad reviews I think people are so spoiled if you’re that spoiled really please just stay home and have your personal chef attend to your every need and desire my God I guess after you have dined at the top 10 every day of your life of course you could say something bad about anything or anybody for that matter! you can be “too” spoiled because I see it every day ! You know those nasty people you hear in the background at the restaurant complaining about everything and they just ruined it for the people around them just stay home “old farts” ! Don’t listen to the reviews-I know good food because I love the capital Grille,Ruth Chris spots,cafe chardone,melting pot I have dined on Palm Beach Island the breakers taboo listen this place is freaking great- and you know what we will be going back this is a great view how can people be so “spoiled “-...or maybe it’s competition ? Either way it’s wrong and nasty start being more honest with your reviews ! (Can’t spell but my taste buds r working fine!
