  • In a place lke this the shrimp

    Dined on 7/23/2013
    In a place lke this the shrimp shouldn't be over cooked, and when I told the waiter, all I got was a sorry. No mention of replacing the shrimp or taking it off the check, just sorry. Service was unattentive at best.

    We enjoyed the excellent food but the greeting when we entered the restaurant was very poor, not-welcoming, not-customer-friendly. We were told we couldn't be seated for our 6 pm reservation because the hostess did not yet have the menus! We were told to stand (uncomfortably) around near the hostess desk or get a drink at the bar (few seats) instead of being seated at our table with an ocean view and served a glass of wine there. Management needs to improve this first impression.

  • Still good but....

    Dined on 6/28/2013
    We have been patrons for several years and this is our favorite restaurant in Fort Lauderdale. We typically order the three course with wine set dinner. This time around the wine was exceptional but the food did not live up to our expectations. The salad was fine but the Gorgonzola cheese irritated my tongue - interesting effect. The main course of a tempura like tuna was ordinary and as good as our local supermarket prepares it. The dessert of espresso creme brûlée was not my taste. When we arrived we asked if Chef Max was there and they said he was only there occasionally. A few days later we received his newsletter saying his ties to 3030 have been severed. We will still go back and order cautiously. If you've never tried it you should,

    We returned to 3030 after a long absence. The food is still good. Servers used to be exceptionally sourced and trained, like Ritz Carlton quality, but currently they are just nice and friendly, but not so professional and well trained, like Outback or Olive Garden. Food quality and presentation are still excellent. We love seafood and came for it, but the menu now has less seafood and more meat and other choices for those who prefer such. The best opportunity for wine lovers is to come on Monday evening when all wines are half price.

    Everything about 3030 is top notch. The ceviche and white clam appetizers were awesome. My wife and I had the Halibut as our main course. It was flavorful and perfectly prepared. I mentioned it was my wife's birthday when I booked the Open Table reservation. They brought out a plate of desserts that were outstanding, desserts on the house. A very nice touch. Our waiter was a real gentleman and very friendly and knowledgeable. Can't wait to go back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 6/14/2013
    Visited 3030 for our anniversary. The food was excellent - great variety, presentation was unique and beautiful, top quality. Best fish I've ever had, my wife's beef was very tender and tasty. The Service was great - Ask for Leo. The only downside is the restaurant is the noise. It's just off the lobby of the Marriott Hotel and has a vibrant bar scene. On top of that they were playing "new age" music with a constant bass beat. Difficult to hold a conversation. But if you're a food fan, don't let the noise stop you from visiting the restaurant - you'll be glad you did.

  • Way too expensive!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 6/13/2013
    Our dining experience was not so great. A family came in with a fussy baby. The food was just ordinary and really expensive. Our son did not like the fancy fried chicken. The pasta seafood dish my husband & I wanted was on the menu, but not available for a entree option. $200.00 later, we left very disappointed. If you go, sit at the bar and have their happy hour prices - 4:30 -7 pm. A much better food selection and deal to be had. Think happy hour.

    After going to this restaurant more then 50 times in the last 8 years, we were very disappointed. The prices were raised, less seafood on the menu to choose from, smaller portions, creme brulee absolutely horrible. Don't know what was done to this restaurant because it was a 5 star. Not sure if we will be going back again.

    For a city famous for it's vast stretches of waterfront, Fort Lauderdale has precious few restaurants that are actually on the beach. This is the best. The Harbour Beach Marriott is a destination in itself. It offers a lively, frendly, large bar area for happy hour without the ubiquitous club music beat. 3030 has always been the best place in town to get an outstanding seafood. The entire menu has been refined and improved to present the highest quality seafood and meats in the most modern and appealing presentations. The taste of every, single ingredient comes through -- perfection!! The Wahoo entree and the beef tenderloin tar tar with quail egg were both out of this world.

    The service was very good and the food was tasty. Portions were hearty. They were very accommodating. I was with two children, one 12 the other 16 but they were kind enough to provide the 16 year old with a child's menu and price given the size of the portions the adult plates presented.

We were unaware of the dishes at the time of ordering but were not disappointed. The food was clean, imaginative and delicious and was beautifully plated.

    It's a shame that Dean Max's bold and creative cooking is happening at such a poorly run restaurant; if your experience is like ours, you'll make up your mind long before the food hits the table. We were kept waiting nearly 40 minutes for an 8:30 reservation (we were on time), always being told it would be "just a few minutes." Staff seemed to be hiding from angry patrons, avoiding eye contact. The shabby lounge reminds you you're basically eating in a Marriott lobby. The waiter visited our table a few times before we ordered - bringing wine and bread, etc - but never mentioned that one of the entrees was out. The food was ultimately quite good - lots of heavy herb and spice flavor, with unique preparations. Too bad we'll never go back.

    Trusted them for our Anniversary Celebration. We made a special request for our celebration. They put us in a back corner away from the water view. Service was super slow, in excess of 45 minutes to get our food. Wait staff indifferent and inattentive. But worst of all, the quality of food, steak had a over processed taste. Tenderloin tasted like dry roast beef. Will not return! Shula's next time for us.

    3030 Ocean is always consistently great! Chef Dennis Maxx never fails to deliver the very best in cuisine. If you are a fan of seafood, you can always find a variety of dishes featuring the freshest catch! The room is decorated in a modern trendy fashion, yet provides an intimate elegant ambiance. Located within the Marriott Harbor Beach hotel on the south end of Lauderdale beach, the restaurant overlooks the ocean & the outside deck area that features fire pits & comfortable seating areas & is an ideal area to visit after dinner at 3030.

    Very disappointed. First off, nobody answers the phone. Salad was small with little to no dressing. The seafood pasta was TERRIBLE. Way too much basil and the noodle used was too wide and long, making it very difficult to pick up with a fork. After returning the pasta, they sent me the halibut special. That was half decent. Not worth the price for anything on the menu. Find another restaurant before you make the mistake and eat here. The restaurant had the Gall to charge me for both meals and never even recognized that before sending me the bill. Never again

    I eat out a lot and this was an experience I will remember. The waiter was attentive and thoughtful. The food was superb and the overall presentation was great. I mentioned I wanted key lime pie, the waiter said they did not have that and wasn't sure where I could get some. Five minutes later he brings me a piece and it was delicious. Turns out another restaurant in the hotel did have it and he made it happen. That was a professional and I will remember that forever.

    I was very dissapointed in the restaurant after having read so many good reviews. My husband's mahi mahi was good but the rest of the stuff on the plate was just ok. I ordered the flounder- it was very very dry and tasteless. Our waiter never came back after the main course was served so my husband graciously shared his fish with me When the waiter brought the check he asked how the meal was- if he had looked at the plates he would have seen very little was eaten. At that point he asked if I wanted something else- but I had filled up on bread. If he had brought the manager back or offered us a dessert on the house I would not have left with such a bad feeling. The meal was not what I would expect from a fancy Marriott.

    Visited here in April for our anniversary and had the chef's tasting menu. It was toe-curlingly delicious, beautifully paced, and expertly presented. A few minor service glitches -- late wine arrival for a course or two, slightly harried waiter, slow water service -- easily forgiven for this unforgettable dining experience. Stellar. The portions, the pacing, and the quality of food was all absolutely exquisite and we never felt too full or unpleasant in any way (which can happen with chefs feasts), though we did take a little walk in the middle of the meal. Seriously amazing, and easily worth the $110/pp. If you skip the wine pairings, it's a bargain at $80! Completely perfect for a special occasion, or any time if you've got it like that!
