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.

Easy breezy tasty

After a long day by the pool and some stress from an incident (see a separate review) this restaurant was a welcomed and relaxed dining experience. It's large and seats by the bar were easy to find. Oysters were fresh as can be and drinks excellent. All the food choices were very good though none... read more

We ate here while staying at the Marriott Harbor Beach Hotel. It's a beautiful restaurant and the food was really good. They use freshly caught and purchased organic ingredients - that was pretty cool. They also use a lot up unique combinations of flavors -- I love that. They missed 5 stars in my book for one important reason. This... More

Fairly formal atmosphere but adjacent to main hotel bar and overlooks the ocean. Chef's selection with wines could not be faulted and service was prompt and attentive.

Keep in mind this is not our first visit to this restaurant. We've been visiting the Harbor Beach Marriott for 10 years and dine at this restaurant when there. The menu was the same for many years. Classic elegant dishes. Service wasn't always the best and the chef was sometimes a little sensitive if something was not prepared properly. We... More

The food was so good that we ate there twice in five days. A truly world class menu and preparation. Cebu he was the best I've had outside of Peru. We also had scallops (seared perfectly) and a deconstructed lobster (with a fabulous risotto dotted with English peas). The service was professional and attentive without being overbearing.

Enjoyed 3030 on our first night. Some very good dishes. The grilled octopus was amazing (better than Giada's), halibut and scallop dinners were winners as well. The fish dip was the only real "loser" of the evening...expected a warm dip and hard to adjust to cold fish dip. Ambiance is very nice and relaxing. A little trouble with our bill... More

We've been coming here for years and it never disappoints. Wonderful and creative seafood dishes, but also does a nice job in catering to a family (albeit expensive). Better couples, adult or business dinner destination

A very good meal but prices are high. Had a restaurant.com certificate but still rather high. The food is excellent and service for dinner very good. Breakfast service was not as good as they seemed understaffed.

We are locals that live near the hotel and decided to grab a bite at 3030 after having cocktails at the pool with some friends. When we got to the restaurant the hostess told us there were no reservations available even though the restaurant appeared to be less than half full. We had to haggle with the hostess until she...
