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.

Practically ignored in the outdoor seating section. Very long cycles between attention from the waiter/waitress. Multiple request for same items (condiments). Had to physically go inside and request simple things like menus, etc. Hardly worth going all that way to have lunch on the beach.

Mother’s Day Grand Buffet was not very Grand!!! Little choice and poor quality food. I have had better quality buffets at my own home. What a waste of $85 per person. But the staff were lovely. Never again.

Place was beautiful. Was not aware it was a buffet but at that point, we stayed anyway. Service was great, first cocktail was made wrong and did not ask for grey goose, but was charged for it. Appetizers and dessert were very good. Main dishes were good, but were room temperature at best, very disappointing.

Overpriced drinks, had to wait a half hour longer for food, because it wasn’t set up yet. The menu said salmon, there was no salmon. Need more waiter staff, had to wait for water.

I can't begin to express how upset I was when I arrived at this establishment. The photos for this restaurant are false, and the address eludes to something that the pictures reflect. The photos show an elevated restaurant with an ocean view...could not be further from the truth.

It's located within a hotel...but on the first floor as soon as you walk in...and is nothing more than a higher-priced Denny's with slightly better plating skills. For my last night in Florida with my daughter, I really wanted a special venue and was more than let down.

I simply just don't appreciate false advertising. I hope OpenTable will do a better job of vetting in the future.

Meals were meh, but service was very slow. Sadly it was not the fault of the server, but the lack of kitchen staff and servers to accommodate a full restaurant. Prices were extremely high for everything from a glass of wine to mac and cheese. I do not feel like the food was worth the money.

We dined in on Easter and no one told us at all that it was buffet only. The sandwiches and mini burgers were burnt. The “truffle” Mac and cheese was mush. Extremely overpriced for what you got.

The most expensive dinner buffet. $85 per adult and $40 children. That one stung with a family of 5...love that my 3 year old had 3 carrots for $40

$85 per person for Easter brunch and food was obviously sitting under a heat lamp all day. Not worth it. Atmosphere great, nice hotel, staff friendly and pleasant. Food not so much. Dried out lobster Mac and cheese and prime rib (more like well done roast beef). Ham dried out. Should have also been more food options in general.

Easter Brunch was extremely overpriced for the service, food selection and experience. $85 a person not including coffee or juice with a waiter that checked on us once and hockey puck burgers, no kid options, minimal buffet selection, and poor quality over all. No room to get around other people and couldn’t even hear the live pianist. Should have been one of the best tasting meals and a very special celebration but didn’t even come close!

We arrived early and the Dining Room Host suggested we enjoy a cocktail in the Bar and he suggested that if we were Bourbon drinkers that the Bartender's speciality was a Smoked Makers Old Fashion....well it was truly amazing and memorable!
Dinner was delicious, I had a deconstructed Lobster Pot Pie and my husband had the Short Ribs. The only disappointment was that his Brussel sprouts were mushy.
Fun evening.

Worst experience ever at a Marriott restaurant! Took 4 different people to get us seated despite reservations. The lobster bisque was cold. Both the steak and grouper were also cold. Sat for 18 minutes as the waitresses decided who would service us. Every action within the restaurant seemed disorganized. I will not return. Oh, by the way, I have nearly 2,000,000 Bonvoy points so I have been to more than a few Marriott restaurants.

As a local, I go here occasionally and bring friends/family when they visit because of the views and ambiance. I went with family and was very unimpressed with the experience. Firstly they were understaffed, our waitress had ~7/8 tables (she was working hard too), so service was slower but she was still attentive when she visited our table. My father ordered the lobster bisque, it was very watery. I ordered the "Lobster Pot Pie" which was atrocious. It was the lobster bisque just poured into a larger plate with some frozen peas, carrots, and potatoes thrown in. It was not the consistency you expect a pot pie to be (like a gravy, almost). For the price I was astounded at the quality, but I honestly felt sick after taking 3 bites so we hurried up and left ASAP. Felt like their quality/options have gone down immensely. Hopefully once COVID is over it goes back up or I will not be returning.

Entrees were luke warm at best, but the food was delicious and well-presented. Huge disappointment about the temperature, but we also waited a very long time for our entrees so they were just left out and not delivered to us. We went for Valentine's Day with a Price fixed menu of $85 per person which included a glass of pink chanpagne but they forgot to give it to us. We received our check before we ever saw the chanpagne so we just decided to leave. I don't want to spend a Valentine's Day dinner complaining about service. Check about $240. Should have been perfect for that price.

The menu was limited due to Covid however the food was amazing! The chocolate creme brûlée was excellent! As were the apps. The salmon dish and wild mushrooms.
Plenty of space indoors for distancing. The service was also great.
Huge Christmas tree in the foyer was beautiful! Thank you!
