I had read all the reviews, and was looking forward to dining here for a week. I really expected the food to at least be above average. I ordered the 3 course Chef's Selection, which included a cabbage (at least that is what I think it was) Cesar Salad which was odd, but edible, the yellow tail Snapper, and Nutella... More

We had a dinner for four on 8/26. We were given a table in a nook which was like a private table overlooking the beach. The dinner was excellent, presentation was impressive and our server, Ricardo, was great. Ricardo kept our wine glasses full and was most attentive. It may be pricey for many, but was well worth the cost... More

Great food, impeccable service and convenient location (if you're staying at the Harbor Beach Marriott) make this a "can't miss" eatery in Ft Lauderdale. The only "negative" is that it is priced high, but commensurate with the food quality.

3030 Ocean is in the lobby of The Marriott Harbor Beach Resort. Very creative dishes. The seafood is the best. Especially Stone Crabs if they are in season. Great bar as well.

The food was tasty, but a little pricy. Portion sizes were fair and fish was very fresh. We enjoyed it, but cringed at the wine list. Overall, worthwhile for dinner when we were too lazy to head out. It would be great if it was a little more separated from the lobby.

We ate here one night while staying at the Marriott. The food was good, I wouldn't say it's one of the best meals I've had. I did enjoy the chorizo and potato hash that was served with the chicken. We enjoyed the desserts, I found the banana tart especially tasty. For the money, I just found the meal to be... More

We dined here twice last summer and it quickly became one of my favorite restaurants for a special occasion. We went again this summer for my birthday and I was a little bit disappointed. The food was very good. I think the biggest hits were the steak and the pork dinners. But the fish was great too. The service just... More

Very good seafood restaurant. The Nutella bread pudding for dessert is out of this world. The restaurant is a little dated but has views of the ocean.

Ate here alone on a business trip. Staff was VERY friendly and attentive. Menu was excellent and it changes frequently. I had a tomato bisque for an appetizer (excellent) and probably the best piece of halibut that I've ever had! Not cheap, but an excellent meal - something I don't expect in a hotel.
