    Everything & everyone was great! They made our Easter Brunch a memorable event! Just wish that they had Coke Zero or Pepsi Zero instead of Diet Pepsi, the taste is better on the Zero products. Other than that, no complaints our 15 family members all enjoyed it!

    So this was my first time eating here with my husband for Christmas dinner from the hostess to the awesome waitress being on top of everything I would definitely go back here next year for the buffet. The food was amazing and the desserts were delicious! Strongly suggest you cannot go wrong. Hubby mentioned Mother's Day there having a buffet probably going back for more!!!

    I had higher expectations for the buffet style for Thanks' Giving dinner, the meat was raw, the selection was quite poor for $89 per adult, my kids only ate mac and cheese with a couple of chicken tenders and that cost $39 each kid? I only ate couple of shrimps, mashed potato and a piece of turkey for $89. Horribly overpriced!!! On top pf everything else, you charged automatically 20% tip for a meal already overpriced. $265 total and not really satisfied. Never doing this again!!

    Thanksgiving Day Buffett was lovely with a large display and variety of selections. All was delicious! Only complaint were the “child sized”plates made it difficult to enjoy many foods together as you had to go back in the line a second time. Overall, beautiful ocean front venue and quality food and I would recommend!

    Beautiful location with everything you could eat for a buffet. But drinks were extra and one mimosa was $11 with no refills! For a $90 buffet you would expect that they were included! If an extra charge had to be made then at least they should be bottomless. Overall a lovely Easter brunch though with spectacular view

    For NYE this was pretty disappointing. Too bad. We had a great breakfast at riva and dinner at 3030 ocean . But this was the saddest NYE dinner or any dinner or meal in general. Dark. No ambiance. Staff was clearly temp /hired that night . Barely hear the solo guitarist playing inside.

    It's a buffet and for a party of three, they tack on a 20% tip. DESERTS: Zero chocolate. No ice cream option. SERVER: Wonderful, Went out of her way to find a chocolate desert ENTREES: Fish [MahiMahi] very good. Chicken: dry. Chicken fingers: Wonderful. Seafood: Weak rice to seafood ratio. Mash potatoes: good. Did not try the veggies. SOUP: Only 1 option and sweet potatoes are not for me. Wife said it was good SALADS: Very good: 2 greens choices. Enough extras: carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, etc CARVING STATION: Turkey: Did not try. Prime Beef: Tough TOTAL VALUE: Terrible! Bill: $230: 3 buffets, tax and their auto 20% tip. Night Before: Ruths Chris Steakhouse. Same 3 people: $260. Great meals. Would go again. Night After: 3030 Ocean, also at the Marriott Harbor Beach Hotel. Same 3 people. Total bill: $220, including my giving 20+% tip. Great meals. Would return.

    Based on how this dinner was advertised at Riva Restaurant, I was upset to find our table to be in a brightly lit, HUGE open ballroom. Nothing remotely special about a $79/person Thanksgiving dinner. In fact, I wish we had booked a dinner off resort. Terrible experience, atrociously over-priced and a big disappointment. Felt like PRICE GAUGING. Marriott brand should be ashamed.

    We opted to celebrate our Thanksgiving dinner at the Marriott as the online menu sounded amazing and offered many of our favorite dishes such as crab legs, prime rib, turkey with all of the holiday traditional sides; mashed potatoes, gravy, sweet potatoes and rolls, salad, cheese and meats. The atmosphere was that of a conference setting, the prime rib was over cooked, the crab claws were not pre cut nor did they have the proper utensils to break them open. The desserts were either frozen or stale. The turkey and sides were delicious. Our servers were Edwina and Gary who made the mediocre dinner a pleasant time. For the price we had higher expectations.
