As always this is our mandatory stop when we travel to Ft Lauderdale! Love the food variety and the desserts are amazing, the table service by Ms. Katheryn was superb. The food selections is always great particularly the seafood which is one of the reasons we return here twice a year. The drink package is well priced and the quality of the drinks included are very good.
This is a must do Sunday Brunch in town. Highly recommend it.

Father's day is always great at Riva. Your employees are exceptional! Teresa, Elaine, Sam, John and many others provide friendly, exceptional service. The food is delicious. The omelets and waffles the BEST ever! We had a wonderful time. it was better, too, since you expanded the seating into the bar.

We go to Sunday brunch frequently. Mother's Day was in banquet room. Found that it was not as good as normal sunday brunch. Servers not as attentive as they normally are. We were told that bar was included in brunch price but we were charged for 3 drinks one of which was not touched and was taken off our table. Not a good experience this time I'm sorry to say. We always recommend Riva to friends, I hope they were not there on Sunday.

The buffet was ruined when the staff allowed a man to carry his yorkie dog in the restaurant. They both cirlcled the buffet and sat at a couple of tables before deciding where they wanted to sit.
There was no leash or indication of this being a service dog. It was incredibly disgusting.

We enjoyed our Easter dinner very much.

However, your website advertising is misleading. When I first made the reservation the only price I saw was $29.99. I made the reservation because I thought that that was the price. Imagine our dismay when the bill came and we had been charged $79.99 each!

When I made the reservation I did not see any mention of the price for Easter being different. In the past we have gone to the Marriott for special occasions and have been very happy. We had not been to your resort in a long time and were looking forward to creating more happy memories.

When we told the manager what happened he only refunded $100.00, basically the price of the tip. THIS WAS BECAUSE THE TIP WAS DONE IN A MISLEADING WAY TOO. THERE WAS AN AUTOMATIC GRATUITY ADDED AND THEN A PLACE TO ADD A TIP. My brother did not see the automatic tip and so he added a tip.

My brother, Paul Morningstar, wants the $200.00 taken off the bill, which is the difference in price between the $29.99 and the $79.99 for four people. He does not want to leave any tip at all because he is so disappointed in the Marriott.

My brother said that if the $200.00 is not taken off the bill, he is going to dispute the bill with his bank.

We thought that the Marriott was a quality venue for our family holiday celebration. Please restore our faith in your company. Since Le Cafe de Paris on Las Olas Boulevard closed, we would like to have a place to go for family celebrations.

We had made a reservation for the New Years Eve dinner buffet. It was fairly expensive, $60 per person, but did include champagne. The food was good, a decent selection (veggies, fish, crab cakes, lamb, rice/potato, salad, cheeses, desserts), but not as big of a selection as i had expected. The service was almost nonexistent. When we were seated we sat for several minutes before anyone came over. She poured our champagne, and told us to help ourselves to the food. No one ever came back, not even to clear our plates. We finally served ourselves to a second glass of champagne. (no one even noticed). We could not find anyone to get our check from, so we finally just walked out to the front and asked for it. They added an 18% gratuity! For 2 people. For a $60 pp meal that is a buffet, with only one server coming to our table once , that is not right. We were disappointed over all, and probably would not do this again if given a choice.

I loved the beautiful view of the beach, it really added something special to the brunch. The mimosas and champagne were top notch and the food was fresh and tasty. I thought that the selection of salads, main dishes and desserts were enough to satisfy anyone's taste. The quiet atmosphere made it possible to enjoy my guests.

Sunday Brunch at the Marriott Harbor Beach always has a fantastic choice of delicious food in an array of light salads, eggs benedict with béarnaise sauce, multiple varieties of vegetables prepared in several ways, and also has a great raw bar with jumbo shrimp, crab legs, smoked salmon, and variety of breads. There is an omelette station waiting to make your huge omelette of your liking. Be sure to leave room for pastries as the assortment is too good to pass up, especially with the chocolate fountain. Champagne to top it all off. Forget your diet. It is all too tempting and too tasty. Have been returning for years and never disappointed. The staff is very attentive. Nice views of garden and ocean just beyond that. I'll be returning!!

The restaurant was OK, and the quite modest buffet was all right. But it could not compare with a Sunday brunch at another Marriott in Ft. Lauderdale on the Intracoastal - now closed. We had not considered that the hotel on the Sunday of Labor Day Weekend would be so jammed with people coming and going. We've never seen anything like it, and it made for hectic arrivals, parking, and departures - though the staff was working hard to deal with it. We believe that there must be better Sunday brunches elsewhere in the Fort Lauderdale-Pompano Beach region.

Overall it was good experience and the food was great but not as big a spread as we expected. The breakfast station only had omelets, no egg benedicts, no blintzes. Also missed the fresh oysters in the seafood section. Desserts were very good and a big selection!
The view of the ocean was very nice but the room itself was very bland. Service was very good and the Mimosas kept flowing.

This isn't one of those crazy extravagant Sunday brunches, but it's reasonable for what you get compared to what you pay ($35/person--including unlimited Mimosas).
