This critique is way over due. I vacationed in Fort Lauderdale Christmas week with my husband and daughter. We went to 3030 Ocean for Christmas dinner. What a gem of a place. This was our first visit to 3030 Ocean. All I can say is great food, amazing service, and pleasant ambiance. We started out in the bar area since... More

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 had dinner and sampled the apetizers as part of one of chef's competing in Hell's Kitchen. We also had post dinner drinks with Fred the whole week, The food was good but a bit salty. Service was great, fast and professional.
