    I came here with my boyfriend to celebrate his birthday. Our experience started out perfectly when we were seated at a table that had spectacular ocean views. The food we were served was absolutely delicious. The goat cheese croquettes, Mac and cheese, and salmon entree were our favorites. Will be coming back!

    Note that they have a separate valet for the restaurant than from the hotel, but I wouldn't have known that if my friend hadn't been there before. Had a reservation and we were seated immediately. The décor is very Florida and nice. The place is a mixed club/bar/restaurant, so it was crowded and loud. Our group of 4 split a bunch of the appetizers and small plates, including the short empanadas, mac and cheese, a couple of sushi rolls. We also split 2 desserts, the blondie/cookie and the date cake. We enjoyed pretty much everything, but the empanadas and mac and cheese were the standouts. Service was friendly and attentive. Your bill will add up as you order more and more plates, but for a special occasion it is totally worth it.

    The view is amazing here, so I didn't expect the food to be great as well. However, the owners of YOLO did not disappoint when they opened a beach version of their popular restaurant. We had the stir fried brussel sprouts, tomato bread, mac and cheese, and the scallops with risotto - all of it top notch - but the mac was the best. Service was on top of things but not pushy. The only feedback I have is that they shouldn't be charging for valet... Restaurant 101. Also, you need at least one dessert without ice cream so customers can get something to go.

    We are locals, and we're looking for a new place for something different. S3 hit the mark. Something for everyone with the various small plates offered. Foodies would be highly satisfied, the flavors all blended well. The preparation and presentations were exquisite. The service was excellent, very good at reading the flow of our conversations and when the next wave of dishes would be. We will definitely bring all of our out of town guests here and be back ourselves never to be disappointed, we are sure. The beach location is beautiful, yet not tacky tourist that one would expect being very close to the sand and surf.

    Great selection of small and large plates. The service was excellent. The ambiance both inside and outside was great too, perfect for a fun date night or group dinner with friends. There is a big open kitchen inside and a bar outside. All of this just steps from the beach. All of the small plates we ordered were great but the chicken wings were a slight disappointment.

    Our dining experience at S3 was great. It was a beautiful evening, and we were tempted to eat outside. Instead we ate just inside the restaurant with a terrific view of the ocean. The doors were left open and we had the best of both the indoor and outdoor experiences. Our food was delicious. I opted for one of the specials, a mahi mahi dish, while my husband selected a steak. Both meals were wonderful. The restaurant was beautiful, and it is worth looking around all the areas to absorb the wonderful ambiance of the restaurant. It is well worth the dining experience.

    My sister and I went for her birthday for the first time and we loved it! I requested an ocean view on open table, and when we got there, they gave us the best seat in the house. Great food tapas style. Pretty good sushi too. I secretly told the waitress (who waited on us hand and foot) that it was my sister's birthday and she was very helpful and came out with a candle on the dessert we ordered. They don't sing because it's a classy establishment, so some other patrons and I sang to her. Great experience. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. Definitely book it through Open table.

    I'm difficult to please and was impressed with their attentive and well managed SERVERS, the organization and coordination in the kitchen at the different food prep stations, and the over-all VIBE of S3. There are two many small plates to mention, did not have one which wasn't well prepared. There is usually a special small plate and entree, as well as sushi, suggest you consider them all. S3 is quite busy, is open late, and its not uncommon to find it packed on a weekend at 10-10:30. Reservations are honored and tables are ready when promised. DJ on Friday and Saturday, be prepared for it. Diverse crowd of locals (me), hotel guests, and various age groups, but mainly under 35, not a rowdy crowd, though. Yes, you see the ocean...

    Third time to S3 was as good as the previous two visits. Delightful tapas type sharing menu for lunch with innovative choices. Sushi and sashimi also available. Good wine list and full bar. Service excellent. S3 is located at the Hilton Hotel on the beach offering outside and inside seating with ocean views. Menu expands for dinner with entre size meals added. We were joined by another couple eating at S3 for their first time, and they were impressed with a new "go to" restaurant to add to their list. We all will return.

    What a great time! We had dinner with a couple for the first time. S3 was suggested as a great tapas place with a great ocean view. Well it lived up to the recomendation. The place was hopping but our waitress was very attentive and knowledgable of the menu. We ordered several items to sample. All were excellent. My only issue was the noise level. It was very hard to have a conversation across the table so most of the night we only conversed with the person next to each other. Besides that it was a home run. We will be going back!

    My wife and daughters were staying at a nearby hotel and had made reservations for dinner based on their menu. Based on their website images, it appeared to be a lively and senic location to enjoy a meal. The food was "GREAT" as was the service. The only thing that I would have liked was if they would have had some sort of music.

    S3 is so fantastic we ate there every day during our stay and on one day, twice. This is same group that owns YOLO downtown. They sure know how to create a concept. We enjoyed it so much, we've already planned our next 3 day weekend to Ft Lauderdale Beach just to do it all over again. Service is exquisite, they adjust to your tempo; food is small plate, so you can try a lot or concentrate one a few (all are great); Edaname are out of this world fantastic, a must try (although may be to spices for some, it was spot on for us); their specialty drinks are on the sour side (spouse loved them, me - too sour; ignore any server who says they're sweet - not in the least) We can't wait till late June when we get to visit S3 again. Great concept!

    We had a very enjoyable evening. Almost seamless, as the valet parked our car we were seated immideatly at a nice table on the deck overlooking the ocean. Our server was prompt, but not pushy. My date & I both ordered steaks, while hers was a little under done, mine was over done.. Still very good though. We can't wait to go back & explore the menu some further!

    Nice evening good food and service. Had to wait a bit to get a table outdoors. I would recommend that they do not light their gas fire pits when it is warm. Outside seating cushions need to be cleaned or replaced. As we waited for dinner the server brought out a portable table for our drinks. Great flavors and verity of tastes. Wine was good but a bit expensive. Overall a great experiences

  • Small Plates Mystery
    NJFoodie
    Dined on 4/30/2014
    When you order at S3 they warn you that the food comes from five different kitchens, and they can't tell when things will come out. First, really? It's impossible to tell how long a dish takes to make and if there is a backlog or not at other stations? The net result was that we had a dinner reservation at 7 when things were still picking up, and all of our dishes (starters, bread, small plates, sushi, etc) came to our table within six minutes of each other. So many issues with that happening. 1) your nice leisurely special evening out is threatening to be over in less time than it takes at the diner 2) do you like to eat your cooked food hot or even warm? So if you don't want to shovel your food in, it's gonna ruin a lovely dish

    Nice restaurant, but has a policy of bringing out dishes whenever they're ready. Trendy, I guess, but I think one job for a chef is to figure out timing so everyone can eat at once. If sharing everything this might be ok, but in our case one person wanted sushi, which arrived after everyone else was completely finished, including dessert! Wouldn't go back unless that policy changed.
