Description: For more than a decade, 3030 Ocean has been a high watermark in the South Florida fine dining scene. Renowned for sophisticated seafood and rustic American cookery, 3030 Ocean features a creative contemporary selection of fresh seafood, prime meats and locally-sourced ingredients, passionately conceived and elegantly executied. We invite you to dive deep into the menu and explore the flavors, textures and techniques that have made 3030 Ocean a favorite among diners from near and far.One of the region’s most beloved culinary talents, 3030 Ocean Executive Chef Paula DaSilva is known for her farm-to-fork philosophy and ceaseless commitment to sourcing the finest local ingredients available. A native of Brazil, DaSilva’s passion for cooking was ignited as a child when she learned all aspects of the kitchen at her parents’ Brazilian restaurants. A graduate with a culinary arts degree from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, DaSilva first began her career here at 3030 Ocean where she honed her skills and secured a reputation as one of the region’s rising culinary stars. A star turn on Gordan Ramsay’s reality cooking show Hell’s Kitchen garnered the savvy young chef national attention for her talent, dedication and coolness under fire. Now, Chef DaSilva returns to where it all began at the helm of 3030 Ocean, bringing with her a diverse, acclaimed culinary vitae and her signature soulful cooking style.

What a difference a year and a new chef make. A year ago this made my top 3 list of meals for my global travels. It was a very memorable meal , as I like to say a meal I’d go back for. Well I came back for another visit and it wasn’t worth the trip. I’m not saying the... More

A really great meal is what was expected and the staff truly delivered. Sincerely, this was one of the best meals we have ever had. The wait staff and kitchen over achieved. Appetizers of fresh oysters with a freshly made horseradish and cocktail sauce, Bronzino, oven roasted in parchment paper, with some of the finest vegetables this side of the... More

I have been to this restaurant three times and each time was much different than the previous visit. Consistently it was expensive. My wife and I like quiet relaxed dinning --food and service was fine, but if you are not early ie 6:00--it might be like the convention expense- account crowd and hurried.

This restaurant is located in the Marriott hotel and since I was vacationing there I had the occasion to dine at 3030 twice this week. It is pricey but the food is excellent. Seafood is clearly the focus here. The desserts were excellent and I especially enjoyed the warm Nutella bread pudding with homemade ice cream!

I hate giving mediocre reviews but the truth must be told! I love that they went out of their way to print out happy anniversary on our menus. Love that they sat us by a window.

3030 Ocean says "FLORIDA" to me. The modern, hip restaurant is located off the lobby of the Marriott Hotel by the beach in Ft Lauderdale. It has sexy blue lights and a very modern, urban feel to it. The staff was outstanding and our waiter was helpful with the fish selection and offering us suggestions. I started with a south... More

Bartender during day was good, fast and polite. Night bartender just average and didn't seem to have much of a repertoire of drinks. Why would anyone have to explain how to make an Old Fashioned?
