We did the Chefs Selection meal and were very happy with our choice. Top notch! The current Hells Kitchen winner even stopped by our table. Very friendly support staff as well.

I ate 4 times there. The lunch offered Good burgers, the fish burger was excellent. The soup was also good, but they lacked variety ( a single soup type). But the bad part: the fish (market price), which was a great fillet was butchered...way to salty, and peppery. It totally spoiled the taste.

We had an excellent meal here. We visited on a night that they were showing the Hell's Kitchen episode featuring one of their chefs. It was very fun. The food was all very farm to table fresh. Really creative and soooo tasty. Loved it. Will be back.

We are not Florida people (can you tell?). We come only to visit parents or for a conference. The food here is fabulous. Mainly seafood, but with elegant taste. Great service. Good wines. Cocktails are fun, and their own are not all sweet!!!

So glad we found this gem in Fort Lauderdale! Referred by a friend, we weren’t expecting much since it is located in a resort hotel, but we were pleasantly surprised. Our waiter, Roshan, was engaging and knowledgeable to all our menu and wine list inquiries. Everything from the entry ambiance with a bustling bar to our last cup of espresso... More

While attending a meeting at the Harbor Beach Marriott Resort, we dined at their in house restaurant "3030". They offered a Brussels Sprouts Caesar Salad. I've never heard of such a thing. I liked it. Seafood was spectacular. The bar connected to 3030 is very nice.

Perfectly cooked wings, on a broiling hot plate with the best blue cheese dressing I have ever had. Service was fast. Attentive.

Wonderful birthday meal, well-served despite big boat show crowd. The crispy fried whole red snapper, served over a truly inspired "pork fried rice," was outstanding!
