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.

My husband and I ate here one of the nights of our stay at the Marriott and it was fantastic. We ordered a bottle of wine, he had the pork chop and I had the ahi tuna. He ate everything off of his plate and said it was one of the best pork chops he had ever had. His dish... read more

My husband and I have dined here many times for years. It has been our go-to for a special occasion or just when we want to count on a great meal when we are in FL. We escaped 2 feet of snow in MD and couldn't wait to eat at 3030. Loved the new look of the place! Sat at... More

We always have a great time when we visit 3030 Ocean located in the Marriott Harbour Beach & Spa Resort in Ft. Lauderdale. We LOVE the bar experience and usually eat there vs. being seated in the restaurant. Erwin is the BEST bartender around and, while he is usually very busy, goes out of his way to serve and make...

Now? Such a disappointment. The new decor is very nicely done; the rest, not so much. While the bar service remains stellar, the restaurant itself left us sorely upset and service in the restaurant was lacking and slow. With a menu that changes for fresh ingredients daily, we expected it to remain the great experience it was with previous chefs... More

We dined here twice while staying in the hotel. The food overall was excellent. I am not a big fish eater, and had the chicken one night which was just ok. My daughter raved about her cod and grouper, and I thought the spiny lobster dish and risotto were excellent too. Drinks are good but the prices are very high.... More

We've dined there several times over the years for special occasions. The food was always superb, the service first class and we always enjoyed it, but the last time we were there it seemed to have lost some of it's luster. They were about to embark on a renovation so perhaps they too knew something needed to change. Hopefully that... More

If you're hankering for seafood, you'd better book a table at 3030 Ocean in Fort Lauderdale, located at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort. You won't regret it. My husband and I dined there last night, and loved it. First, the seafood was perfectly cooked. Not over or under done. Perfect...moist and tender...flavorful, delicious, and wonderful. I ordered the Grilled Local... More

We were staying in the hotel and on the last night had our local family meet us at 3030 for dinner. The restaurant is actually a multi use area in the hotel where we have also had breakfast and lunch at different times. However, at dinner it is "converted" into a more sophisticated space. Has a bit of a bar... More
