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.

The vast variety of the menu offers elements of locally sourced products used, the creative marrying of flavors and the beautiful presentation seals the fact this is a dining adventure. Reservations are suggested.

We were excited to eat at this restaurant after having several people tell us it had great local seafood. They did offer a couple of local seafood items, but most of the seafood was not local. In my opinion they also seem to try too hard in being trendy with strange food combinations that didn't always work. Their specialty drinks... More

extraordinary menu! A real culinary treat. So many interesting offerings, it was hard to choose. We shared the octopus salad and burrata salad, and then enjoyed the scallops and red snapper entrees. But the chef changes the selections daily so you never know what she'll come up with. Expensive, but worth every bite. Gluten friendly too!

Although the food was excellent as was the service I feel I have to shave off a star for the ambiance in the room. We dined at 7 pm on a Friday evening and our table, close to the entrance to the main lobby, was ready and waiting. We were welcomed by two young ladies at the host stand. The... More

Been here several times for various occasions. Went 2/21/15 for a birthday dinner, and every thing was great, as usual. Our party of four always ends up ordering completely different things so we all get to sample multiple dishes. Ceviche, Brussels sprout salad, crispy pork tacos, and grilled octopus salad were all excellent starters. Fillet, corvina, whole snapper were all... More

OK, I get this is a resort and they have a somewhat captive audience, but for Pete's sake! I was hoping to get dinner. I ordered seared maine scallops with beluga lentils, oyster mushrooms, baby carrots, lemon thyme sauce, and fingerling potatoes. $34.00 for the entree. When it hit the table it was three scallops, two mushrooms each cut in... More

We arrived on a Friday night and the restaurant was fully booked. We sat in the bar. The music was loud and the prices astronomical! I would not return here.

Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry your visit wasn't all that you expected. Weekends do tend to be our busiest time and we play live music that we typically get very good feedback on.

Many wonderful seafood dishes. We like to get a number of appetizers and share a fish main course. I recommend the octopus and the clams!
