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.

Food and presentation are top notch. The ambiance leaves something to be desired though as you're basically sitting in part of the hotel lobby. This and the price conflict. If it weren't for this fact though....it'd be an easy 5-star rating.

Delicious food, fantastic atmosphere, very pricey. But if your not in the mood to drive and just want to have a fantastic meal and stay on property, this restaurant is about as good as it gets.

Only sat at the bar for a couple of drinks and dessert. Service was pretty good and wait staff is friendly. For what I got the prices seemed a bit overpriced for what I got. Bar has nice decor and ambiance. Only place in the hotel that is open later so that is nice but still rather limited menu.

We are locals in the Ft Lauderdale area and 3030 Ocean was one of our favorite restaurants but sad to say no longer. We always ordered the tasting menu and wine pairing it was a terrific value and it was also a special evening for us. Since Chef Dean Max left the food quality especially with the tasting menu have... More

It was quiet and very romantic. The food was superb. So good I almost wished I wasn't staying in a hotel so I could take my left overs home.

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.
