Amazing experience all-around. Great service from Chris on the patio. Sushi was 5-star - loved the Thai tuna roll, seafood tower, edemame and goat cheese croquettes.

Live music was phenomenal- highly recommend S3!

Great service, everyone was helpful and pleasant. Service was excellent. Food was average. The omelette was Luke warm, and tasted ok. Bagel left much to be desired. Coffee was good

Had a lovely romantic dinner at S3 with my fiancé. We sat on the patio by a heating lamp that kept us warm on a cooler January evening. The food was heavenly- we ordered the (1) Goat Cheese Croquettes; (2) Bermuda roll; (3) Bavette Steak (4) Grilled Octopus- and loved every single bite as each had layers of flavors and textures. The service was excellent and we got sat right away. As a dog person, I was amused by the dog decor around the restaurant- particularly of the royal pug by the front door (I am pugsessed). I’m grateful that it was so easy to make a reservation at S3 on a Saturday afternoon for a Saturday dinner using Open Table!

Had a great dinner last night, big thanks to Nick and the young lady at the bar who helped start our experience. Whole staff provided professional, positive vibes. The view can’t be beat - the ambiance and staff compliment the view and are just as great.

Enjoyed the Brussels very much so, lots of unique flavors and one of the best Brussels sprouts dishes I ever had. Also, enjoyed a speciality roll and it was obvious all ingredients were fresh. Unique menu in a positive way. Sushi/Tapas/fresh caught fish/ great quality steak - a well rounded menu with something for every one.

Nice spot for family dinner, happy hour drinks or a night for two to enjoy nice conversation and a pleasant staff. Will be back 10/10

Side note: We parked valet and the gentleman was very professional. We walked through the lobby back to restaurant and everything along the way was 5 Star Clean. When we left dinner, the gentleman at valet addressed me by my name to say goodbye, which showed great levels of personalization and guest experience. (this was without him having prior knowledge of my name, so I felt it was as if the entire resort was running like a well oiled machine with multiple departments working in unison to deliver a flawless guest experience.)

Food was good. Service very slow they were not crowded, on a Sunday night. Drink glasses frequently empty, for longer than they should. Had to ask for another drink.

Have eaten there often. Consider it among favorites. Service from server and kitchen were way below normsl

Be aware that the outside beach view is separated by a main road which is very loud. Super distracting. The food was average. The presentation was great. And the cocktails were really good. Our server was very attentive.

My boyfriend and I were visiting from the Midwest. This was our first dinner in Ft Lauderdale and we were very impressed. The ambience and feel is very calming and warm, but very chic. There was a line out the door and thankfully we had made a reservation.
We ordered sushi (Dragon roll, Bermuda roll, and Tokyo roll) and they were delicious!! The drinks were great too!
We dined there on a busy night, so our server was very busy but he was very attentive to us when he visited the table and was very kind.
If we ever visit the city again this will be on our list of restaurants to go to again. Highly recommend!

Have been here many times and the food and outdoor seating are usually a pretty solid combination. Two negative factors on this visit for brunch though: One is the live music that my table was about 4 feet from and could barely hear the person I was with. Two is the unlimited mimosa bar, which always had a long line and they ultimately ran out of champagne well before the cutoff time of 4:00. At $40 per person for just the mimosas, I feel as though they should have their sh*t together a little more and that we ultimately didn’t get what we paid for. Other than that, it was decent.

waited almost 45 minutes for our first round of drinks. ate all the apps before we even got drinks. was unaware of a christmas menu / the chefs refusing to do modifications even though the restaurant was not at full capacity. wanted a veggie roll as i don’t eat seafood and they refused to accommodate. didn’t see this on open table or their website or we wouldn’t have went.
