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.

Terrible atmosphere. Weird, huge, open area middle of restaurant. Loud echoes. No steak on menu. Waiter screwed up the one drink order we had.
Over $100 for one drink and 2 appetizers. Had dinner here because we were staying at the hotel. Next time we will Uber somewhere.

Great experience right on the ocean. Grouper and Swordfish were delicious. Wedge salad huge, enough for 2 or 3!

Made a reservation for dinner but when we arrived the dinning room was closed for a wedding so we had to sit outside on the patio on a warm night. Food was very good with my wife having a fish stew with lots of fish, clams and shrimp. I had the Osso Bucco which was fall off the bone tender.

I made reservations through open table based on the good reviews while on vacation. Looking forward to a enjoyable dinner and request window table hoping for a wonder view of the ocean. I received a text confirming my reservations the day before. Great!
When I got there with my family I was informed the restaurant was closed for a wedding and we could sit outside or in the lounge by the bar. Well... it would have been good if i was informed of this when i made the reservations or when they confirmed the day before..... so since we were already there I was optimistic and choose outside. Which was on the side of the building.
Long story short. service was slow and inattentive. My Osso buco was dry and inedible, my daughter's filet mignon that was supposed to be medium rare, came out medium well, my son's burger that was supposed to be medium, came out well done. The my husband's caesar salad came out good. Lol!
To top it off the waiter argued that he saw pink in the medium well done steak that was supposed to be medium rare. Anyhow... I would not recommend this restaurant!

Located on the ground floor of the Marriott Palm Beach, Singer Island, is the 3800 Ocean restaurant. The restaurant features an "open kitchen" and either table or booth seating. We were seated at our request next to the floor to ceiling windows the looked out to the Atlantic across the beachfront of the hotel. The wine list is among the very best in all of West Palm Beach featuring hundreds of options! The selection we chose for seafood dishes was "Karia" from Stags Leap of Napa Valley, California. Our meal started with a shrimp cocktail with four very large shrimp on a tray that additionally featured a fabulous mini-salad of Arugula and heart of palm. The main courses were excellently prepared. Any of the fish selections make good choices. Our meal was followed by a sorbet of Blueberries and Grapefruit that was the perfect finish to a wonderful meal. The service was excellent and the cost was appropriate for the quality received. All-in-all, a good value and a great choice for dinner.

The restaurant was very nice and inviting. We were sent to a table by the window to view the ocean which was really nice. I had the scallops dinner and it was very worth the flavor of wait. The other two had the crusted grouper. The deserts were awesome. Kudos to the chef. The waiter was very attentive to our needs. Thank you for a great evening out.

I thought we were going to be sitting at a beautiful restaurant on the beach but we instead were looking through a dirty window at the ocean in a restaurant with very poor ambiance. Food is terrible and ridiculously expensive. My son ordered a Caesar salad and it had no dressing on it... I had the burrata to start and it was mostly tomatoes with the smallest piece of burrata with regular mozzarella... we had tenderloin which was average at best. Don’t waste your money.

There are many other restaurants in the area that in the future i would go. Do yourself a favor grab an Uber and go elsewhere. We ate here 2 nights. First night my pasta dish came out with chicken I ordered shrimp. By the time it came back my wife was finished with her scallops (which she said was very good). 2nd time wife had Prime Rib special....first time i have seen Prime Rib prepared on a flat top grill. Certainly not what was expecting. Btw fish tacos for lunch were good. Sorry folks just being honest.

Great food! Very well done! I found the portions a little small for the price. Cocktails again were a little pricey, but again, very well done. Absolutely no complaints with quality!!! My only reservation for recommending 3800, was the fact that, their online menu wasn't even remotely close to the same at the time we were there. Waiter said the online wasn't just wasn't updated yet. That unfortunately gave us the feeling of being dupped. Especially since it was mother's day.

Unfortunately, restaurant did not plan ahead for our reservation and sat walk ins which broke up the amount of tables they needed for our large party. We waited over 20minutes to be ushered to a table where seats were crammed in between columns. Didn’t even fit. The whole point of making a reservation, especially for a large party is to avoid this. There were many items missing from their usual breakfast selections. Restaurant was more focused on their upcoming brunch than on

We stayed at the Marriott and while the morning breakfasts here were great, we joined for dinner and had a bad experience. We went for my wife’s birthday dinner and the service was very disappointing. I would definitely recommend for breakfast if staying at the hotel, but would not come for dinner again on our next visit.

3800 was a great spot for our anniversary. Staff was very accommodating. Food was excellent. For starters we had the PEI mussels. I had the Osso Buco , my wife , the Bronzini. My wife is very picky about restaurant food quality and she was very satisfied, as was I. Alcoholic beverages are pricey. Next time I’m on Singer Isle I’ll definitely return to 3800.

It was the Easter Buffet...and I was shocked when I got the bill and it was approximately $100 per person. The food LOOKED very appealing.. but that is where the good news stopped. Most of it was lacking any flavor. The worst part was the deserts...they were so so pretty on display and tasted terrible.
The parking valet group were slow and disorganized. I would never go here for dinner again.

We went to 3800 Ocean for a quick lunch on our way to the airport. We arrived on time but had to wait for the hostess to finish up 2 telephone conversation before she could accommodate the party in front of us. The restaurant was otherwise very slow; only a few tables around and the servers were moving about trying to look busy. Finally, while the hostess was still on the phone, an older server came and sat the group ahead of us and would have sat us too but by that time the hostess finished her call.

In the hostesses' defense, it wasn't her fault that she was on the phone. Whomever called asked stupid questions about what was on the menu and whether they can make reservations to come to the bar. The hostess tried to accommodate as best she could.

Upon seating down, we noted that the table wasn't 100% clean; whomever had cleaned it did so in a rush. We ordered food and then waited 24 minutes for the food to arrive. During this time there were probably 4-5 other tables in the whole restaurant.

The food was not bad; one of us had a burger, another wings, another soup and another had salad. The service was basic; the server did not make any effort to preempt the slow preparation of the food and only apologized briefly when he brought the food over.

All this happened from 11:15 am - 12:15 pm. The whole restaurant was not very clean; they had just finished serving breakfast and the buffet was still somewhat open. It was also loud, not just a few rowdy kids but also servers who set and reset their station with little regard of loud they were. No one really gave a damn we were eating there.

I will never go back to such a place; it may be OK if you stay at the hotel, but do not make an event (lunch or dinner) out of it because there are so many other places so much better than this.

Food was good and wait staff was adequate. However, prices of food and
drinks are extremely over the top. Ordered a bourbon on the rocks and was charged twice the normal rate for the bourbon and then an extra $2.00 for the "rocks". That is absurd. As a Marriott Platinum member I can honestly say I will not spend another dime at this resort.

Wonderful waitstaff and great chef! My lunch was delicious as always no matter what I order! Dessert was heavenly! The ocean view while eating is beautiful! (After a spa day, I usually treat myself to lunch or dinner after I’m done! I live across from the Marriott in Palm Beach Isles! Excellent valet service as well! Thanks for contributing to a heavenly much needed SPA day! 😊 See you all again, hopefully, very soon!
