Food was very good and, of course, very convenient if staying in the hotel. Service was friendly. I think that reservations would be advised (even for hotel guests) as the place was fully packed.

service and food were excellent but they need to keep non-diners i.e. hotel guests away from fire exit as door opening disturbed ambiance. Riff faff should no better anyway.

Great seafood/Italian in a lovely setting in hotel near Ft Lauderdale Beach. We started with the spicy octopus and the Tuna Poke. Both were outstanding and I could have eaten more as an entree. Very original preparation that was seasoned just perfectly, it didn't need a thing added to it. We decided to spilt the Bronzino, which is one of... More

Had a heavily influenced seafood dinner with a couple of clients. The ceviche was very good as was the shrimp cocktail. The scallop dinner was very good and the lentil and mushroom base made for a great combination, but the dish was too salty. Our server Karen was friendly and attentive. Convenient if you are staying in the Marriott but... More

We love the anniversary dinner we had here, the food is great and well presented, but the service wasn't what I expect on a restaurant like this, we will like a little more attention to details.

The Resturant is Located in the Marriot Harbor Beach resort. I have had mixed success dining at hotel restaurants, you know, it's not their main focus on many occasions. I was very pleasantly surprised by 3030 Ocean. A comtemporary setting, good service and at least based on my one visit, excellent food. The bread basket was a treat, the crispy... More

I lived in Florida 25 years, and this is the best seafood restaurant in which I have had the pleasure of dining. My husband and I ordered the 5-course chef's tasting menu with wine pairings - we enjoyed every course and the little tasty extras thrown in as well. The bar was bustling and hip, and the talented lady pianist... More

We had dinner here on our first night. Richard was our server. He did an excellent job! Both my husband and I ordered the red snapper. Richard made sure that we both knew the snapper was going to be served whole, with head and tail on. That is not a problem for us. Our meal was so incredibly delicious and... More
