Diner Reviews
  • "There's a major construction / renovation in progress at the hotel. It's pretty noisy, and sight of construction is not appealing for an upper-class restaurant. Dining inside with boarded windows was pointless, so we moved outside to the patio. But the morning sun practically scorched us. There should have been awnings or umbrellas, which there was none. Instead there was a industrial size fan blowing, which added to the already too high noise level. Definitely not a good choice for breakfast or daylight dining. We've had much memorable experience last time we dined in the evening."

  • "The setting is beautiful, especially if you dine on the "dunes" as they call it. Unfortunately the dunes were closed when we were there as there were not enough people (3 tables of people dining outside throughout the evening). The food was ok, but nothing more to make you come back. Same for the service. The waiter was nice, but not very knowledgeable of wines for example. We would probably come back with some friends for the view, maybe for lunch rather than dinner though."

  • "We have been here several times but this was the first time back in a couple of years. The outdoor dining is RIGHT on the beach ... can't get much closer. The food is excellent, which was the case in our last experiences, but this time the service matched the food. Very attentive, including completely understanding food allergies of one of the diners. We'll be back."

  • "Set right on the ocean, I happened to have breakfast earlier in the day, then a light dinner that evening. The view is wonderful: the Atlantic at your finger tips. However, the food - mine at least - was forgettable. I decided on the mussels: they were tiny and the broth not particularly appetizing. Too bad. The service was earnest. Earlier in the day, my omelet was served dry and lukewarm and the service was lamentable. I hope others' experiences have been better. But the restaurant has a long way to go."

  • "Very nice place for lunch or dinner especially during the off-season when it is not crowded. Service was exemplary. Menu could stand a few additions for vegetarians (most items contain chicken or meat). Good soups & gazpacho."

  • "This was only my second time here. The first was nearly perfect, so we decided to take a group of friends. Unfortunately, this time was disappointing. The food was not great. It was extremely hot and there was one fan that was used. I would love to go back for the atmosphere if nothing else, but I do hope it is better next time."

  • "Great birthday lunch while in vacation. I enjoyed the food, service, and view while sitting outside for lunch."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "My husband and I ate here while we were on vacation. The view was absolutely beautiful. It was so quiet and relaxing looking at the ocean and eating out lunch. The food was delicious too. They give you very soft and warm bread to start off which was very good too."

  • "IF YOU LIKE DINING BY THE OCEAN, THIS IS THE PLACE, ABOUT 75 FEET FROM THE WATERS EDGE AND GREAT FOOD AND SERVICE, ASK FOR OUTSIDE TABLE."

    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Very nice Oceanside dining. Good food, but the real prize is having dinner with the ocean just a few feet away. Some of the tables are literally on the beach. I do think the parking should be free. It is not. $5.00 with a validated ticket."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "We decided to go to someplace new and found a really fun restaurant in fort Lauderdale right on the ocean. The food was delicious, good drinks, our server was attentive, great bread basket, overall a very nice evening. The manager was especially cordial and helpful."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "The view was absolutely amazing!!! We went early and there were barely any people there which made us worry that it was all about the view and not the food. However, the food was surprising good, not much of a selection, but great nevertheless. Already planning our next visit there."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "The service, food and atmosphere was not as expected from the hotel's website. Food was pre-cooked and over priced for the quality and content since entrees (more than $27 each) do not come with any sides which are an additional $7-$10. Drinks were good. Would not recommend. "

  • "..... dies ist ein Platz mit wunderschöner Aussicht , aber diese wurde uns verdorben, durch den dauerten Umbau der Stühle und Tische, durch zu laute Musik und doch zu etwas hohen Preis für das Essen. Schade !!!!! ..... zhis is a very beautiful place with a view, but this was spoiled us by the continued conversion of the chairs and tables, by too loud music and yet somewhat high price for the food. A pity !!"
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Wow... We were lucky enough to get one of their 5 tables after the deck and on the grass looking over the ocean. I was in awe how beautiful everything was. The food was great - the server could have been a bit more knowledge on the menu/food but no worries because it didnt affect our experience. It made for an amazing first night on vacation. I will definitely be back!! "

  • "You cannot beat the ocean view and outdoor dining on the veranda. The food was good but would not rate it any higher than that.......and yes, you do pay for the view. We went there with another couple and our bill was about $225 with tax and tip. Was a bit annoyed that they tacked on a $14 fee for valet. Dining room dinner menu is overrated and a bit pricey. Go to the pub side and enjoy the same view outdoors with a less expensive menu."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "We both ordered drinks, an appetizer to share, salads and entrees. When my partners drink came out the waiter apologized for the long wait because the drink had been made incorrectly. We should have left at this point. Our salads and appetizer came out at the same time. We ordered baked goat cheese. When asked what we are to eat it with the waiter said to just eat it with a fork or he could bring bread. The salads were good. My partner ordered medium down filet. It came out very well done. When he complained they said they would prepare it correctly. The second time it came out it was cooked on the outside and RAW in the middle. We had enough. The manager was nice enough to comp our dinner but we won't be back again "

  • "This was a great spot for our 24th anniversary celebration. We like going to memorable places and this is one. We will definitely find another excuse to go back The service was great from the first greeting to the last goodnight. The ocean view was very special, even though we can see it everyday. The old world building was a nice change from the normal South Florida architecture. Definitely a place to take those special people."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "The food was excellent. We both had the yellowtail snapper. We dined outside with a panoramic view of the ocean during sunset. We could not have been happier. We will definitely return again. The service was attentive and courteous without being intrusive. One martini arrived in a dirty glass but they immediately replaced it. We will definitely return to this gem."

  • "Ocean 2000 in the very nice pelican hotel is one of the prettiest I've ever been in Dining outside looking at the ocean is just remarkable. the service was outstanding and not rushed However the food was good not great. The steak was supposed to be cooked to medium came out well done the very attentive waiter saw this and took it back and came back with another which was so rare that I was only able to eat around the edges(I didn't want to waste another steak) I would highly recommend this restaurant because I no they would have taken that steak back till I was happy with it."

  • "This being my first time at Ocean 2000,I was apprehensive at first.From the friendly greeting to the impeccable service,all my fears vanished.We were treated like visiting royalty , and cannot wait to go back."

  • "I reserve this restaurant for a birthday dinner for my girlfriend and I. The setting was great, right along the beachside. We could see and hear the ocean, which was nice. On March 19, they were observing the turtle nesting season, so the restaurant had to keep the light very low. This made seeing the menu difficult, but we used our cellphone, table candle, and the restaurant also provided a small flashlight. Everything was great for this evening and restaurant, the only thing is my girlfriend's entrée, shrimp something, was very fresh (not in a good way). I ordered the snapper which was pretty good, but probably a little fresh as well. I also had the asparagus soup, which was great. All in all, it was great experience."

  • "Once again we were not disappointed. It is a perfect setting and we had one of Florida's perfect evenings. The food is good with excellent service. Some May think it's pricy, but you're receiving quality food n service with ambiance. Only negative is charging for valet, although you receive a two dollar discount with resturant validation."

  • "My grandparents came into town and so I tried to find a place that had extraordinary food, great wine list and a perfect setting. I found this restaraunt online and it surpassed all my expectations . We got to sit on one of the outdoor tables that had its own area, beautiful ambiance with the sounds of waves crashing behind us. Unfortunately until they come to visit again I probably won't be able to come back because it was fairly expensive, too much for a college student like me to come with any friends."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "Beautiful restaurant, awesome view. Food was barely edible. We had NY strip which was mostly fat/gristle and the pork shank which tasted like they poured motor oil on it. With a new chef, this place would be awesome!"

  • "Although everything was very nice, my date and I were the only people in the indoor restaurant at 8:30 on a Friday night during the season. There may have been customers sitting outside, but it sure had an empty feeling inside."

  • "We loved our experience at Ocean 2000 in The Pelican Grand Hotel. We had the perfect weather for sitting out on the porch with the amazing view of the ocean. The food was excellent and our young serving was amazing. Who could ask for more? You will not be disappointed eating here. We love the Southern feel to the building and relaxing on the rocking chairs before and after our meal. I told my husband it's as good as being on a cruise:-) Can't wait to go back."
