We stayed at the Marriott Harbor Beach Hotel after a wonderful 7 day cruise on the Allure of the Sea (great ship - highly recommend) and dined at the 3030 out of convenience. We had a great meal with very good service.
I had the Paella and my wife had the snapper. Both were very good with lots of flavor. Two disappointments -
1. I wanted the Barramundi - but they were out (waiter said no fish delivery on Sunday). They were also out of the scallops and grouper. Surprising for a fish restaurant.
2. The snapper was served whole - with head and tail (which was expected and desired). The diner must fillet the fish his/herself. We asked the waited and he said that he did not know how to do it. At most restaurants in the world, the waiter or captain comes to the table and fillets the fish for the customer. My wife could debone the fish, but in a up-scale restaurant, it is surprising that this service was absent. (To restaurant management - you may consider an upgrade of your service).
On my next trip to the Marriott Harbor, I would again dine at the 3030 Ocean. If I were staying in Ft Lauderdale (in town), I would again dine at the Star Restaurant Group Restaurant in the W Hotel (which was also upscale and more sophisticated service).
I also fine the wine list heavy on high cost bottles and short on mid-range wines - surprising for the venue.
Hope this helps other guests.
