Description: 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.

“A great dining experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

The menu items we indulged in were delicious. The fresh mozzarella melted in our mouths, the free range chicken breast was tender, moist, cooked to perfection and as our server predicted there would only be a bone left the size of our finger. Indeed he was correct. The chef selection consisted of a mixed green salad with artichokes, shaved parmesan cheese with a light and tasty vinaigrette dressing. The mahi was fresh and grilled to perfection, servered with hearts of palm, corn, broccolini , whipped yukon potatoes, with a coconut curry sauce. Desert was a spicy warm mango dish, and a frozen oreo mudside. Each dinning experience will never be duplicated as the menu changes daily. Our server was friendly, humorous, knowledgeable, and attentive to our needs.

“Delicious & well worth the $”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Delicious! Ordered the filet, which was delicious; they did something amazing with an onion/potato and cheese = Au Gratin surprise. Beautiful presentation. My daughter (8) loved her noodles with butter. Fish was very taste. Pricey but worth it; I would return again.

“I can not say enough!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

We enjoyed everything about this restaurant! Tim, our waiter was the greatest. The food was out of this world, and I am picky! You have to try cauliflower soup. We do not mind paying the price, as long as it meets high standards, and 30 30 Ocean does it right. What an enjoyable evening!!

“Pricey but food is Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

We loved it. Food was fabulous, and presentation was great. Service was very good, although a little pricey. If your going to splurge for a dinner, this is the place to do it.
