Prices were too high for the fair quality and portion size. The service was very slow. 45+ minutes for food. All of the guests in my party got food at different times. It was not a packed house, but the kitchen was way behind. I noticed people at all of the tables were getting food served at staggered times. This was 2pm in the afternoon.

Chicken and Waffles... decidedly not good.

We thought it would be great because the atmosphere was terrific AND they allowed dogs on the outside part of the Restaurant but it was raining and so we ate inside. The service was adequate but that was barely good enough. The menu was all over the place and not focused as was reflected by the food itself as it was not focused and kind of weird, like the riceless sushi. Sushi without rice is sashimi, not some weird soft wrap that was too moist and tasteless. That kind of summed up. our experience - weird and tasteless and just not focused. I hope things change there as the place could be rocking!

We went for Christmas dinner and the place was busy. But we were seated promptly at our reservation time. The server was apologetic that it was so busy though there was no need to do so. We ordered an appetizer to share and sushi rolls. The food was fantastic and the drinks were amazing. This place is well worth the price.

Went for dinner as a local for Christmas Day with family. We were very disappointed for many reasons. Server had no personality and spent very little time with us. The menu for the holiday was very limited and not indicative of the style of the food typically served and lastly the music was all commercial Christmas tunes blearing in our heads. When I mentioned it to the server she did not comment and just walked away.

The take away for our experience at S3 is to never dine there on a holiday!

Been a million times. Always good.
Till Christmas Day.
Presented Christmas Day menu.
Sushi was good as usual.
Turkey dinner and Scallops were grossly over priced for what you got. Turkey was bone dry and scallop portion for price was ridiculous.
Server was great as was restaurant per usual.
I’ll go back for sure. Just never on a holiday with short menu.

We've been to S3 every time we are in Fort Lauderdale. We like the food and service, it's always consistent and top notch. We like dining near the kitchen to see the action and this time the Sushi Chefs went above and beyond to take care of us.

This is a lively restaurant that tells you that items were designed for sharing. All of the servers were helpful. You can order extra food from any of them even if they are clearing some items. The check can be obtained from any of the servers as well. This is different than many establishments with strict delineation of service between employees. Everyone was cheerful. Fish, chicken and appetizers were all better than average....

S3 was amazing. We arrived a half hour early for our reservation. The bar was packed, but they were able to seat us early. Edamame was perfectly charred, Tuna tower was amazing and the grouper special had amazing flavor. Beautiful view of the ocean and people watching at its best.

Incredible meal and drinks. Odd situation though - we were celebrating our anniversary, so a dessert was brought to us rather than the dessert menu. Not something we would ever order, but we ate it thinking it wasa polite, complimentary gesture. We were then charged for it. Next time, I would rather pay for the dessert I want.

Everything was excellent except for glass of Cabernet which came out chilled. Waitress explained wine by the glass is chilled because keep in a cooler. Very disappointing since I was very familiar with Joel Gott and it did not taste good. I would recommend restaurant reconsider how red wine is served. Thank you.
