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.

After reading so many glowing reviews on Trip Advisor, this restaurant was a "must". Our two appetizers were a "B" at best. We both ordered the whole red snapper as our entrees. The fish was dry and the "fried rice" was significantly over seasoned with soy sauce and inedible. Our waitress was very nice. Since my wife did not eat... More

We took my mother-in-law out for a birthday dinner. The food was amazing. Everything was very tasty and so well put together. It is a great restaurant for special occasions but it is very expensive.

Excellent seafood restaurant with exceptional, polite service. Not too busy in the week but more so at the week-ends - suggest booking. First class 3 course set menu with wine for $59 dollars which is highly recommended. Did have other a la carte options including non-fish options. I can't enisage a better seafood restaurant and ambience in Fort Lauderdale!

I dined here a couple of times on different occasions while in town. It's quiet which is good for a business dinner. But the prices are insane. Be prepared to pay around $50 per person, without drinks. Overall the food is good but I think there are better options outside of the hotel.
