My partner and I frequent S3 and it is ALWAYS an amazing experience.

We have our staples, but last night we tried some new things!
The Short Rib entree was to die for! Tender and juicy with a goat cheese whip for creaminess. The broccolini was tender and spiced nicely.

Our sushi was fresh and tasty and the gouda Mac and cheese is always a treat!

Our server, Drew, was attentive and prompt even with the busyness of the evening. We of course HAD to order the strawberries and cream doughnuts for dessert, but Drew offered to give us some time to digest our entree before putting them in. I thought that was an unusual, but much appreciated thought.

The food was well seasoned and good sized portions. We got an outside table in the corner so it was perfect for us and our friends and their young children.

My 77 year-old-mother fell shortly after we arrived. The floor was wet and she slipped. A manager from the kitchen observed her falling and was extremely attentive to her, brought her ice, and said that the restaurant manager would come and check on her. The restaurant manager left so much to be desired. Cold, callous, and uncaring. Our server Devin was terrific, but based on the food, the obnoxious and excessively loud music, and the poor treatment from the general manager, I would not recommend this place. Many other restaurants with much better reviews are close by. Expectations were far from being met.

Beautiful night and fabulous server made the experience all the better. Food was on point as usual. Love the variety, big, tastes of their food. We had tomato bread and chips and dip for starters. Great! The short rib was the best and small plate shrimp dish was superb. Love S3.

We’re staying on the beach for the weekend and have eaten here before. Consistently good food and drinks! Our waitress Courtney was fabulous! Her happiness and attentiveness made our experience even more enjoyable! And her suggestion of the cheesecake/carrot cake for dessert was exactly what we needed to complete our meal!

This is a great place for lunch dinner and or happy hour, eclectic menu, mixed crowd, music Friday night at happy hour. We had sushi, sandwiches, tacos all which were great including the French fries. The restaurant is located across the street from the beach, so wonderful view and outdoor seating. They also care about the safety of their staff and guests / a definite find. Will return when we go back to Fort Lauderdale.

My friends and I enjoyed the ambiance of sitting outside for the brunch. I usually love the food I have and I did enjoy the goat cheese croquettes and sushi. I have not been disappointed when it comes to the sushi. My drink was interesting and changed color but a bit tart for me. The breast cancer chicken sandwich was good. My friend’s French toast was “regular” but good.

Overall a nice experience that was enjoyable as usual. I’m ready to go back for the main menu.

Buenas tardes, empezaré por el ambiente: súper adecuado confortable, música y vista súper buena
Servicio: la persona que nos atendió fue atento en el momento que nos atendió pero luego no lo vi más después de la primera orden estuve esperando 40 minutos para ordenar mis platos principales, hice señas a otro pero no me presto atención, luego apareció el mesonero inicial y nos volvió atender de forma amable.
Comida: fui porque había muy buena referencia sobre el sushi pero realmente no fue lo que esperaba, estaban muy aguados los rolls se desvanecían. Realmente no me gusto el sushi de allí.

Probamos otras cosas de entrada como unas bolas de queso de cabra, muy ricas y unos tradicionales edamame que estaban muy bien condimentados.

Deben ser cuidadosos con pisos mojados puesto que a mi hijo se le cayo un vaso de jugo el cual no limpiaron solo recogieron los hielos, mi hijo al pasar por allí mismo se ha caído y rompió su rodilla porque el suelo estaba mojado, otras personas hubiesen hecho un drama con eso y podría acarrear una demanda, pero afortunadamente no somos así, son cosas que pasan.

En líneas generales el lugar es muy agradable.

The chef changed the recipe to the octopus dish and it was not as good. The filet mignon was delicious, but the side dish that supposedly consisted of potatoes, brussel sprouts, and bacon was all mashed together and was not good.

We never had problems before, but this dinner did not meet our expectations, especially since the food is expensive. For the money spent, we expect better food quality from S3.

For special occasions, we will consider other restaurants for a while.
