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).

The food was delicious but I was not expecting a buffet on new years. However, the food and service was excellent. Everyone was very willing and able to do whatever you needed. I recommend Riva.

My server was wonderful, and so was all the staff(especially the omelette chef - she personally brought pancakes to my table). Wow! What a welcomed surprise!
I will be back at my next opportunity.

We booked brunch because it was ocean side. We were marched past the semi ocean view tables, and past the the swarms of people dressed in shorts and flip flops hovering over the fried food, to the back of the restaurant and seated facing a wooden paneled wall. Almost ocean view. We were offered champagne (wait sorry, sparkling wine) right away. My friend looked at me and said, "are we at Denny's?). We promptly left and went on to have an outstanding brunch at the W. Skip this touristy nonsense.

Service was terrible for Mother's Day. They tried to sit us 10 miles away from the buffet and we had a reservation. Server also told us we only had 45 minutes to eat before they had to reset the tables. IT was hot, noisy , and not worth the money.

We ate four meals (3 breakfast, 1 dinner) at Riva while staying at the Marriott. The restaurant is totally ugly, especially compared to the adjoing 3030 Ocean restaurant, but hopefully that will change with renovations. My husband and I are both vegetarians so the best meals for us were Sunday brunch and Saturday night dinner buffet. Both offered tons of diverse non-meat options. The regular menu did not appeal to us.

The resrtaurant was overly lit. Service was poor. This is a buffet. Is not what we expected. The food was OK-Good. The server said she would set the table. She didn't. When we returned from going through the line, I asked another server if we could have utensils. She told me to take them off another table. This was Valentine's Day with Champaign invcluded. The server showed up with the Champaigne about 15 minutes after our arrival.
The buffet was $48/each. Ridiculously high for the atmosphere and service. Buffets don't require much service and you get even less than expected. The room was reconfigured for large groups. Looked like a banquest hall interlaced with small tables. Could have played a basketball game under the lights.

Riva which has been good for brunch and special occasions is undergoing renovations. The section of the restaurant that we were seated was the worst of any restaurant I can recall. Narrow with no windows - they now have ZERO ambiance. Service was lacking as they were easily into lunch for one hour before they got everthing set-out to eat. We were pretty much done by the time they got out the Shrimp, bread, certain meats, butter, Cream Cheese, etc.

Made Christmas Day less than it should have been.
