3800 Ocean

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.

"Food was great! Service from the hostess to the server was atrocious. I feel like all the other servers were more attentive than ours. There should be standards at this hotel. I use to work for Marriott so I know there are. FYI put your staff in check."

"Expected a quiet, romantic beachside dinner. Instead I got a noisy, crowded restaurant with dozens of kids shrieking and running in circles. The hostess apologized for our awful seat (far from the oceanview windows and next to an apparent buffet area), but said they had a number of larger parties that had to be accommodated.
The overhead speakers were playing Sinatra-style tunes while a live guitarist in the lounge part of the restaurant was playing Cat Stevens-type music. One of the two needed to go.
People had to speak louder to hear and kids were whining or shrilly laughing. Many kids were well-behaved coloring or watching cartoons on their iPads.
This is an upscale Applebee's."

"I started by ordering a bottle of white wine for cocktails. The bottle arrived at room temp. So, I decided that a warm glass of white wine during cocktails was better than having nothing. The waiter then served one small quarter-sized disc of butter for three people on a tea saucer, an unconventional way to serve butter. All of us ordered the sauteed yellow snapper with Risotto. I requested that the fish be powdered with flour and sauteed in butter (this is basically a Dover sole type prep). What we received was oven baked fish with a scoop of grattoni on the side. It took two discussions for them to admit that grattoni is not risotto (which was the prep on the menu) and that the fish had been baked not sauteed. The fish also lacked the medley of artchoke hearts and tomatoes. They re-cooked the fish to match the "sautee" description on the menu and I must say that their version of saute was pretty bad. The fish had no browning and was floating in oil. It was only slightly more edible than the baked version. They did not have time to make the other half of the dish, risotto, because they had not prepared any for the evening even though that was the preparation described on the menu. The fact that this "chef" was in a blue blazer and checkered sport shirt indicated that he was not where he belonged---- over seeing disasters in the kitchen.Although I am not a desert eater, one person wanted a scoop of ice cream with a little chocolate sauce. When the ice cream arrived they forgot to add the chocolate sauce. So once again we exchanged plates. I started to look around and noticed that there were only two other tables of customers in the restaurant at the heighth of the tourist season and a 7:30 pm. It occurred to me that this restaurant was struggling to find victims.
The entire night was spent re-ordering items, making corrections and trying to salvage an evening from being a total disaster. Dining here was not a pleasant experience.

"We ate outside and had a very pleasant experience. The Food was excellent and the view of the ocean superb. There were glass walls which diminished the wind from the water. I had the Crabcake sandwich and would highly recommend it. A little pricey but not outrageous."

"Most overpriced place for value that we’ve been to in a long time. Carpaccio was below ordinary, lobster was way dry. $27 and $24 for two ordinary 9 oz glasses of wine? Service was very friendly, but management has to be awful. Nondescript room, too brightly lit in the evening. No chance that we would go back. You're paying for a daytime view."

"Went here largely because of location (next to hotel we were staying in), and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the the food. Seafood dishes (special grouper and yellowtail) were exceptional. Only negative on food at all is that portions were huge, we each finished about 1/2 and we were sorry we didn't share entree.
Service was very high quality, with people ensuring we were't eating on anything too long.
Prices a bit high, but in line with quality and ambience for area.
We had dinner, but would be great at lunch as then you could see ocean..."

"We wanted to celebrate our 44th anniversary and chose this restaurant due to the proximity to our hotel. After making reservations with Open Table, I decided to push our time forward. It was only then that I was warned by the restaurant that due to refurbishing of the main dining room, we would be dining in the Lounge. Not bad but less romantic for sure.
We had the special of the steak and vegetables, the latter being extremely good, the former only pretty good. I thought it would have been a bit better, given the price and locale.
Our server was okay although at times, like when the coffee arrived cold, it was hard to find him.
My one thought is that they could have recognized the anniversary. On a very positive side, they did provide gluten free bread to my wife.

"this place is $$$ or $$$$ not two and it sounded like it was on the ocean, but at night, you can see nothing, It is a hotel restaurant, with excellent food and service, but much more pricey then OPEN Table indicated and still just in a hotel"

"The restaurant experience was very disappointing... bad experience started with the teen-agers who are the valets who kept talking to each other rather than come up to the car and great us. Next, the host and hostesses at the entrance appeared frantic about something and kept talking to each other rather than greet us... we had a reservation and when I reminded the hostess that I had requested a window seat, she said that she was sorry but there weren't any and then her colleague pointed out that she was taking us to a window seat like we had requested. It was new year's eve, so for a prix fixe menu, you'd think a few new year's eve items might be a nice touch but none provided. The service was pretty leisurely and it took a long time to get initial service started and then about 50% of requests got remembered. The night ended trying to find a high-schooler to give our valet ticket to to get our car back... all and all not a great experience and we won't be back."

"My family has been a patron of 3800 for years, the food has always been excellent and the service impeccable. This was not the case New Years Day. The restaurant was almost empty yet the wait staff seemed to disappear for long intervals. Our dinner without dessert took 2 hours. One of our party ordered the baby kale salad and received large chunks of mature, leathery, bitter kale. When we complained about the salad we were dismissed initially and had to insist the salad go back. The waitress came back and admitted that it was not indeed baby kale, we waited 25 minutes for another salad. As I said the wait staff seemed to vanish, no drink refills to be had. When our food did come out the everything tasted the same, a district southwest flavor, sweet corn soup to the scallop entree. The scallops were served atop a congealed hardened bed of grits, obviously it had been under an heat lamp for a long time. The butternut squash pasta was and embarrassingly small portion. We complained to our waitress and insisted we speak to the manager. The manager was obviously uninterested and did not offer to comp any of our awful dinner. We had to hunt down a waitress to pay our check and left without dessert. As we were leaving an entire group of busboys was entering from the patio all laughing and sarcastically told us to have a good night. It was as if no one was in charge of a bunch of unruly staff who had better things to do than their jobs. We were so disappointed."
