Our table was not ready on arrival. Restaurant was super busy and noise level was loud. We had a short wait for our table. I had an air conditioning unit overhead dripping water on me but didn’t complain as there were not other tables free and we were in a booth so I could slide across. The salmon sashimi was very fresh and plentiful. The bavette steak was good but the food does all come up at once so you need to know this which we didn’t before we sat down. We also had wok charred edamame which were tasty and I tried two types of tuna sushi but the tuna was chopped up not whole inside. We also had a delicious Acheval-Ferrer Malbec from Mendoza.

I would retry this restaurant but maybe during the week when less busy.

Good all round service with knowledgeable and friendly servers. Food was good and perfectly cooked.

Having eaten both outside now and inside on two separate occasions, I’d choose inside next time.

S3 is always a wonderful establishment to dine at. I forgot our server’s name, unfortunately, but she was a delight and very attentive. I ordered the char grilled octopus and it was absolutely perfect. S3 is one of my favorite places to go to.

We had a great meal at S3
Charred edamame and goat cheese croquets were very good. Charred flavor, sesame seeds and salt gave a nice taste.
Small plate with shrimp and grilled vegetables were perfectly done. Sushi was very good. We topped it up with carrot cheesecake - not too sweet, but fluffy and creamy. All in all a very good experience.

Service was excellent and server did her best to clarify a rather confusing menu. Overall a pleasant dining experience but menu lacks clarity and guidance to a first time diner at this establishment.

There were 4 of us having lunch and the food came out randomly for each of us. One person finished his entire meal while the rest waited for theirs.
I would not return as this was such a bad situation and there was no excuse for it.

The atmosphere is very nice and comfortable. Unfortunately, we had issues with the food. But I would go again, I’d just order different things. Got burgers, fries, and onion dip that was horrible.

We were sitting outside and noticed that the cloth on all the seats was very dirty. We have come here over the years and really like the vibe but it’s become quite dirty. The food was all overly salted!!

Went for my daughter's birthday for brunch. We always love coming here, they have great menu, and everything is always great. We had fish tacos, a fish sandwich and chicken and waffle sliders, and we started with sushi. Beautiful day and a great memory.

One of my favorite places when visiting Florida. Yesterday we were celebrating my friends birthday and S3 did an amazing job making sure her birthday was unforgettable. Natalie the hostess was extremely welcoming and attentive, very sweet. Rachel our waitress was simply the Best!! Cindy at the Champagne Bar was simply amazing as always. Food was delicious!! Charr octopus is a must! They currently have a delicious chicken breast burger on a pink bun for cancer awareness month, a must have. Everything was great!!
Definitely recommend!

Our server, Lily, was the best part of the meal. Food is interesting, tasty, and well executed, but maybe it was the noise level that negatively influenced my impression of the food. Appropriate for “go to the trough” diners.

Great food, service was a little wanting but the noise level was ridiculous. We could not hear the person across the table. The place was packed and they had the music CRANKED. Ridiculous as NO ONE could give a SH-T about the music

We loved S3. Enjoyed a daily special sushi roll(shrimp&crab) as well as another roll and a handroll. The tomato bread app was nothing special though. Recommend S3 for food, ambiance, service!
