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 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.

3030 still has it! We have been eating here for many years and the food remains very good. We ate here two nights in a row and it did not disappoint. Each of us were extremely happy with our selections including lobster, scallops & hallibut. Don't forget to try the salads that are made with locally grown veggies! Delicious. Making... More

We sat at the bar enjoying some well made martinis and soon moved the dining room where we experienced a seafood dinner that was truly enjoyable . Our waiter was... More

Great high-end seafood restaurant that I'd return to. The place is pricey, but not exorbitant for FLL and for a place in a Marriott. Wine selection was great and price-gouging actually wasn't too bad for the vino. Roasted tomato soup and sea bass were spot on. Portions were fair. Ambiance was chic romantic--perfect for couples, business, or celebrations.

Service and the view are top notch. Staff is very knowledgable and professional. No twits here. Menu needs to change EVERY day to really be farm to fork. The chef got lazy over 4th of July but I will give her a pass because the hotel was crazy busy. The food is really very good and carefully prepared. A little... More

We enjoyed the Happy Hour menu, and the atmosphere is really nice. The crowd is a bit Stuffier than out at the Sea Level, but it's nice if you want a quick bite before you head out for the evening. The ceasar salad with steak is one of the best I've ever had.

The restaurant is at the Harbor Beach Marriott Resort and while the decor is clearly Marriott stock, the flavor and personality is anything but corporate. I sat near the bar since there was a table open as i arrived and had the good fortune to have Jonathan as my server. He made several recommendations, starting with a cocktail. He recommended... More

The food here is fantastic! The service is very good and friendly. They call it their fine dining restaurant, but it is really not that formal. Just no tank tops or bathing suits.
