    Made reservations a week before. Wanted to sit outside over the ocean. The hostess said I’m sorry we have 3 private parties that basically took over the whole restaurant and outside areas and the bar. She then proceeded to tell me our table would be another 30 minutes… they sat us next to the hallway to bathrooms., food was way over rated. Sushi the size of a hamburger… really?? Don’t even order the snapper…. Terrible. The atmosphere was so ridiculous because the 3 parties were all over the place. Anyway $245 down the drain. I will never return. Don’t waste your time or money. James H Bennett lll

    Food is really, really good. Tapas-style menu. The sashimi was high quality. The sashimi roll was no-rice (cucumber wrap) with hamachi, tuna and salmon - excellent, refreshing. We also had the octopus with beans - the least good dish but still very tasty. The carrot side dish with chimichurri and the tomato salad with feta however were superb. The initial waitress confused our order with an adjacent table so our drinks and food kept going there. When the other table complained the response was extraordinary. The waitress was replaced (feel a bit bad about that - she seemed really exhausted) and the attention for both our tables became next level. They comped our drinks (two glasses of moet champagne and a glass of Pinot…fairly substantial!) without even mentioning it. This is one of those experiences that will really stand out for us. We’ve been to 2-3 star Michelin restaurants - sure, S3 is not that but the value/service are way beyond expectation. This is a special place. We recommend this place whole-heartedly and will go back.

    First time. Visiting from out of state. Wonderful meal and our server was fantastic. Kicking myself for not remembering his name. (Very positive outlook. Friendly and knowledgable - bearded). I had the Korean Chicken and my husband had the salmon. Both were prepared and presented perfectly. Only suggestion would be to make it clear on your website that the restaurant is located at the front of the Hilton hotel so out if town guests don’t mias the pleasure of dining there.

    Amazing restaurant with great food. We were a group of 10 people and had a variety of sushi, snapper bites and salmon. Everyone’s meals were delicious. Be aware that dishes come out as they are ready and not together. Our only minor issue was service was a little slow but it was okay. Highly recommend this restaurant.

    It has been years since we’ve dined here and, quite frankly, I don’t know why! We visited for Happy Hour on a Tuesday night and sat outside by the fire pit. We started off with a drink each and an order of edamame that was the most delicious edamame we’ve ever had!! We followed that with a spicy tuna roll which was also delicious. All of this from the Happy Hour menu. We decided to stay for dinner. The snapper was fantastic and with a really unique presentation. We also had a chicken salad that was fantastic, as well. Service was on point. Kylie and Devin thanks for great service tonight! We definitely won’t wait years, or even let months go by before we’re going back to enjoy it all again!
