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.
We ate here a few times, so food OK, over priced for sure. They don't know how to cook steaks? 8 of us and we all ordered steak from med raw to over done, and all the steaks raw. Took hours, the sides were not great. Prices of an upscale place and food about like Denny's.
Four of us went for dinner after an outdoor concert nearby. We had reservations for seating at the bar. We were seated immediately and enjoyed the bartender, Steve, very much. He had lots of great suggestions for dinner and knew his way around the wine selection very well.
We had the best ever scallops, a very nice flatbread with smoked salmon, duck spring rolls, ravioli and a very fresh Caesar salad. We enjoyed everything. It did take a little while to get the food but we not in any hurry so it was fine. We will definitely be back to try the chocolate banana bread pudding - we were just too full this time.
Went to this new restaurant based on the reviews and wow, I loved it, started with calamari which was light with two sauces, I ordered the huge bone in Kansas City chop pork chop with sautéed spinach and brown sugar sweet mashed potatoes . Hubby ordered the filet and friends ordered tuna and steak all was delish. Service was well paced although we did have to ask 3 times for more bread. Manager came buy a couple of times which was good. Dining room is small so reservations are necessary! We got lucky! I would definitely go back and try this place again! Only open for dinner.
You definitely need to make a reservation for a table. My husband and I had an enjoyable dinner at the bar. The bartender, Steve, was friendly and helpful with the wine selection. The dinner was excellent and the Tilefish worth another trip up A1A. We are very likely to return.
Any place else, maybe a 3 to 3.5 but Flagler county, a 4.0 and they're polite! Imagine that, polite and in Palm Coast! I have to add blows away Blue. However, did not note any local or organic ingredients. This area has a plethora of fresh natural ingredients. We didn't try the shrimp and grits so I cannot vouch for the origin of those particular shrimp or the origin of the crab in the crab cakes. If we go back, I will be inquiring about the origin of the seafood. I did note that one flatbread has rock shrimp so, rock shrimp has to be Florida origin. Regarding the flatbread, it tasted like the cracker bread base was packaged. The pesto was bland (lacking garlic maybe packaged), the tomatoes were not ripe and not plum just salad tomatoes, no parmesan or romano. Overall, a bland flatbread and not good but not bad. The bread service was very good. The olive/caper tapenade was unique. House wine is acceptable. Salad was drenched in dressing. Why serve oysters on the half shell from a continent away? This restaurant has the only wood fired pizza oven in Flagler county and is not in use. Fire that mother up and serve some gourmet pizzas! Please! We'll try it again but wasted opportunities here from no local ingredients to a wasted wood burning pizza oven. Wonder if they want to sell it?
Beyond the best restaurant in this area. Food and wine are unbelievable and priced way below for the fine, fine, product. The owner does Veal Osso Bucco and Chilean Sea Bass on the weekends. Restaurant should be in one of the finest cities of North America.
Can not give an accurate review on the food as we didn't get a table. We had a reservation, waited more than 30 minutes and asked the hostess "When will be seated?" The hostess was rude, not apologetic and told us There Are No Tables Available and the Kitchen is Closing. Find it hard to believe the hostess has any experience in the hospitality business. Left and went elsewhere for a fine dining experience. I will give the small, over crowed place a Poor rating in Customer Service. I Would not give 386 a second chance after being treated so rudely.
Had the honor of eating at this culinary explosion brought to the Hammock. Best wine list in Flagler County hands down. Selections from all over the world.Prices way below what they should be. The cuisine was outstanding. My mouth was watering from every bite. Highly recommend making this your new go to spot for upscale dining! The Real Deal!
