Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Amazing ambiance.. Really romantic and just exactly what my fiancé and I were looking for. The people were friendly and the food was great... Just be aware that the service was soooo slow! But the view is really worth it!!!"

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Great restaurant, excellent food and service, it is a misnomer to expect good service when a restaurant is quiet, but Ocean 2000 surprised on all fronts."
    Dined on 11/22/2013
  • "The evening started out great. Wonderful bottle if wine, great appetizers and that's it. Our main course came while we were still eating our salads. The server stood there and asked if we would move our plates so he could put down our main dishes. As far as the main dishes, the scallops were terrible and the food was room temperature, almost cold. I would never return here."

  • "We choose Ocean 2000 as the spot to treat our lifelong friends from San Francisco. They loved our choice;we had a wonderful meal and great service and were able to catch -up in one of the prettiest spots in Fort Lauderdale. We were not trying to impress , but they were ,even saying they would book Pelican Grand on their next trip to the east coast. Special mention to Barbara( hostess per excellance) for always remembering her repeat customers and for being so gracious."

  • "Our server was great, prompt and helpful. Didn't mess anything up with our order! The food ws great, only reason I didn't give 5 stars the portion was a little small. Great tasting though. The view outside was gorgeous and so relaxing with rockers and comfy lounge seating. Inside was beautifully decorated too, big semi circle booths and fun decor!"

  • "Not a good first impression.....host not pleasant....couldn't find reservation. Had to wait over 20 minutes for our cocktails.....waiter said the bar was really busy...so the diners had to wait for their drinks. Finally got our drinks right when food came. Our food was decent not great. I would go back..... but only for apps/drinks on the porch overlooking the ocean."

  • "Extremely romantic. The best view of any restaurant I can recall in Broward and Dade. It is literally on the ocean and you immediately feel like you are on vacation. ( For us native Floridians)"
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "This was our first time at the restaurant and it was just what we have been looking for! We appreciate the opportunity to eat outside. Food is good but relatively uncomplicated and service was fine. It is the location that makes this special. Will definitely go again."
    Dined on 1/27/2014
  • "Excellent food and wine1. Outdoor dining listening to the ocean waves lap unto the shore with a beautiful starlit sky. A little dark to view menus, but the servers all had small flashlights. Service was good and appropriately attentive."
    Dined on 1/27/2014
  • "My husbands shrimp had been previously frozen and his risotto was very undercooked. My salmon was perfect but the baked goat cheese app was too rich and one note. My son had the snapper with no taste except for a horrible tomato sauce but was perfectly cooked.the chocolate crime brûlée was very good and the service was a bit anemic. It was too cold for us on the lovely balcony overlooking the ocean. We stayed at the pelican and found breakfast and lunch to be generally good here."

  • "Outstanding ocean view dining. I had the ribeye. it was cooked perfectly."

  • "Wonderful setting for outdoor dining But so dark can't see menu or food Make sure there is no special event as the noise level prevents ANY conversation"
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "Yes, it's directly on the ocean but the food is overpriced and poor quality, served by people who are unprofessional. Dinner for two cost $100 and wasn't worth half that. Never again."

  • "Outstanding vista. Probably the best location to eat if you are looking to feel like you're in a tropical paradise!"

  • "We ate out on the patio and enjoyed the oceanfront dining. It was very romantic! The service was very good and the seafood was outstanding. I loved the butter with the pink sea salt served with the bread- quite elegant. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and will definitely go back again."

  • "We selected Ocean2000 with the hopes of having an outdoor lunch overlooking the beachbut gray skies, high winds, and occasional rain showers left us eating at an indoor window seat. Very nice lunch but our server did not mention the daily specials, did not bring us our bread basket (another server walking by and asked if we wanted bread - well, yes!), and returned after taking our order to say that she was in error when she said the cole slaw side was included in the fish taco lunch - come on, how much does the cole slaw cost. Rather than admitting an error and disappointing a customer, why not just absorb the loss of 50 cents or less. While service was fair at best the food and atmosphere made up for it and we had an enjoyable lunch."

  • "Food is good but not great for the price. Would not come back just for the food. The view is however outstanding and would definitely come back for that."
    Dined on 10/28/2013
  • "The food was to die for! But the service was a bit messy. They shouldn't have so many people working at one table, we kind of got forgotten about because the communication was poor and one thought the other was taking care of it....not so good at a restaurant like this. We came for the dine out menu, so ordered our dessert at the beginning. Once our dinner was cleared, we waited almost 20 minutes before I finally went and spoke with someone...and put more quarters in the meter:( They could use more light, at least on the tables, you couldn't even read the menus, which I guess is known since the waiter handed us a flashlight to read the menu! Maybe some torches or lights near the water would be nice, but suppose not bc of-turtles."

  • "My husband and I are in our late 20's and we got married at the Grand Pelican hotel not too long ago, the restaurant in the hotel is the Ocean 2000 and they have really wonderful food. Theyre has not been an unpleasant meal we have had from this kitchen, all the plates are great! the ceviche appetizer, salmon with eggplant ragout, the chicken, salads, etc. All great! and everything cooked to perfection. Prices are definitely for a special occasion but its absolutely worth the splurge, their staff is wonderful and very welcoming."
