During my business trip to Fort Lauderdale, staying at the Marriott’s Harbor Beach Resort & Spa, we went to dinner at one of the hotel restaurants – Ocean 3030.
The restaurant is nestled within the hotel, and does not really offer many views of the water, which is a bit disappointing. Dining out on the terrace, overlooking the ocean would have been nice, but not so.
This restaurant calls itself “casual chic” bistro style , serving american cuisine specializing in seafood. I think less casual, I would refer to this more as “pretentious chic”.
The menu is very limited, offering a selection of well though out, well prepared dishes, but limited nonetheless. A small sampling from the raw bar, minimal starters and a very few specialized dishes.
We ordered a variety of dishes from the specials and the standard menu. The meals were all beautifully plated, interestingly paired and tasty. With entrees averaging $36 though, the meals lived up their pretentiousness.
All in all, a relaxing meal, in a nice restaurant, with friendly, knowledgeable staff. I am not sure I would visit again intentionally, but if staying at the Marriott again, I would certainly consider it!
