Service poor and not in line with a JW Marriott property. Server poured 1/2 bottle of wine into 2 glasses that were already half full, overfilling both glasses. Sat in near dark on the patio. Not a good dining experience.
Very good food spoilt by very slow and amateurish service - could not even open a wine bottle without ruining the cork! No apologies!
The food and service here were excellent. We had a table by the window with a great view of the ocean. The temperature was really on the cool side - so bring a sweater.
Wife and I had a great experience at 3800. Chrissy was our server and she was excellent. She was very polite, friendly and professional, greeted us by name. My wife had the fried flounder and I had the Wagyu beef cheeks. Flounder was very crispy and tasty and the beef was very tender. Cocktails were tasty and well balanced. For dessert we decided on Chrissy’s recommendation of the s’mores pot au creme. Very good and a lot of fun to eat. We will be back next time we are in the area.
Dark corner table. Neglected by server. Excellent food.
Overpriced. Cold ambience. Good service. Decent fiid
One of the best dining experience we have had! I am gluten free and chef came to our table and discussed the menu, and then decided to make a dish for me, which was simply amazing! We watched the “ blue moon” light up the ocean outside our window seat as we enjoyed our dinner! Excellent service too! Plus, they validated the valet parking, very nice touch.
NICE VIEW. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND FOR LUNCH ON WEEKENDS. THEY SPENT THE ENTIRE TIME CLEANING UP BREAKFAST CRASHING PLATES, SILVERWARE, PLATTERS. IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO RELAX AND ENJOY MY COMPANY DESPITE REQUESTS.
My experience at 3800 Ocean was top-notch. It is quite expensive, but you get what you pay for. In this case, I had one of the best prepared and thickest pieces of fish I have had in quite a while, a wonderful ocean view, and an extensive wine list (although they did not have any Spanish wines - I am partial to Albarino and Rioja). 3800 Ocean was also quiet, a quality I value in a restaurant. The service was not quite up to the level of the food and view. There was nothing wrong with the service per se - just not quite the attention I expect at the highest level of dining. I would certainly dine again at 3800 Ocean. Is it expensive compared with other area restaurants? Sure. But life is too short not to occasionally have the best if you can afford it.
Food was excellent. My wife had the tempura fish - the fish was moist and flaky with no grease and a great presentation. My beef cheeks were fork tender and had wonderful flavor. The bread pudding we split for desert was likewise amazing.
The only negative was that the main courses came out while we were finishing our appetizer. A minor inconvenience (I ended up using the pretzel bread to sop up my extra gravy.)
All-in-all a great dinner.
Wonder view, food and waiter!! Love coming here
While there was nothing bad about our experience, neither was there anything particularly memorable. At this price point something should stand out.
The staff was fantastic - from the hostess to our waitperson to the Pastry Chef - all were over and above and made the meal.
We did not know that Christmas Dinner was Buffet only (Looked at menu online), nor that the restaurant closed at 8. We arrived for our reservation at 8 after flight delays etc and wish we had come a little earlier as tings were winding down. The restaurat was freezing (needed to where coats) which did not help the food.
The entrees / hot food were wondderful as were the pastries !!!!!! Where it fell down was though the appetizers were plentiful, they had been sitting there for hours and all of the lovely canapes were ice cold in small plastic disposable plates. There was no Attendant at any of the apps or hors d'oeuvres, Were they not ice cold, they would have been terrific. If threy were presnented differently and warm, would have been great. We would have been happy with dar less of them but the warm ones not icy cold.
The AC was up so high that our entrees cooled off in 3 minutes - such a shame.
Highly recommendable! The Braised Wagyu Beef Cheeks were AMAZING!!
Just OK nice view food was good not great
We sat outside nice view but seemed kind of dirty
