We finally made it to 386 and based on the reviews were underwhelmed. What turned us off the most was the interior - not on par with the food prices. The air conditioning was so poor they had some of the back windows open! Dingy curtains and basically in need of some sprucing up. Yes we know this is FL where everything is more low key but... next time I'll wear a t-shirt not a golf shirt.
Food was good and after an initial long wait for the server service was acceptable.
Probably the worst restaurant that I have ever tried. Certainly the worst restaurant for the price. This place is very high on price and very low on everything else. It is located in an old Florida beach shack on A1A with sloping floors - they left the slope in the floor when they put in the restaurant, probably for the rustic feeling. Then then jammed too many tables in the place and made the tables too small. Great place for meeting new people because they are seated right next to you without any division of space. Really a bad idea.
Quality of food was terrible - meat had no taste and vegetables undercooked and fries cooked in oil that had been around too long.
Service didn't show up for long periods of time and was dressed very poorly and and certainly not to any standard of dress.
Price - unbelievably high for poor food, worse service and terrible atmosphere.
Worst Valentine's Day visit ever. When calling we were promised romantic seating. They seated us at the bar. First strike. We ordered our food and waited patiently only to hear one staff worker cussing fxxx that and fxxx that and then punching something in the kitchen area. Second strike. Food came out uncooked and had to send it back. Charged $90 for two people. Third strike. They held tables for people that never showed up. Bad experience all around. Never again.
I was very impressed with is restaurant. It's definitely a step above the typical restaurant in this area and offers excellent food and professional service. They went above an beyond to cater to my dietary needs by creating a dish off the menu which was exceptional. Atmosphere is lively and although prices a little on the high side it was well worth it.
Not sure where these great reviews come from? I went with family and had reservations but owner was rude when seating us. Service nothing great by any means. Food terrible and I am not just saying this. We were all very disappointed and will not return. So surprised they get any good reviews. I am not picky at all either. Not one of us thought our food was good. Atmosphere is awful. Brown drab curtains, dark, cafeteria tables and chairs, what? Do yourself a favor and spend your money elsewhere, even Captains further down A1A for barbeque is way better, including desserts! Sorry, but this is all true.
386 is OUTSTANDING!!! The food, the atmosphere, the staff are incredible. It has become our favorite restaurant. Please do yourselves a favor and dine at 386. You too will enjoy the delicious dishes prepared to perfection. Among some of my favorite dishes are: Veal Piccata, Lasagna, Grouper, and Key Lime Pie! It's always exciting to dine at 386 because of their varied menus. So hard to choose--all are mouth watering. What an exciting and innovative place! Thank you Frank for your endless hours of providing top quality homemade food and personal attention to all your customers. We always feel welcomed and treated like family!
This is definitely one of the areas better restaurants. Not too sure about those that had negative experiences here but my wife and I really had a great meal here. My wife's lamb dish was delicious and very well cooked, my steak was wonderfully seasoned with an awesome bourbon sauce and our sides were perfect compliments. The atmosphere is kind of rustic and the service was very good. It is on the pricey side but we thought it was well worth it and a great location for a celebration or special meal.
Went there with my Wife and Sister for our Anniversary. I ordered a steak and I was very upset when it arrived. It was tough... very tough. Could not eat more than three pieces. Extremely pricy for what we got. Service was good, but the food was awful. For sure.. would not go back.
Just came back from having a wonderful meal at 386 A Fusion of Fine Dining. Until today we had some trouble getting a reservation and now we understand why. Food and service was great and while it's not a fancy upscale atmosphere, it's warm and inviting and the food more than made up for any lack of atmosphere. Unfortunately they only have wine and beer but we made due. We used a Groupon which was the impetus for our first visit and we will definitely return (with or without a Groupon). The warm crusty bread was served with a olive/pepper tapenade (very good). We ordered the special flatbread appetizer ($12) that was enough for 4 persons. It had cream cheese, capers, onions, tomato, lettuce and smoked salmon and was delicious. My wife ordered the gorgonzola crusted NY strip steak with fries and it too was delicious and cooked to perfection. It was so large that she and I shared the steak and took most of my Cioppino (which was excellent) home for another meal. We made room for the chocolate cake which we also enjoyed. For a Sunday the place was full and everyone seemed to be enjoying their evening. This is not a cheap place to eat but well worth the cost.
