    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!

    Ceviche was warm, Prosecco also warm. The server still served them both even though he realized that they were warm. They also made a mistake and charge my credit card $630.00. The server wasn’t paying attention and charged me for the wrong table. server apologized, the manager didn’t even come to my table to apologize. Not sure how this restaurant has this kind of rating. Terrible!!!

    I don’t normally leave reviews but I had to take the time out to say how great of an experience I had at S3. The server was amazing! The place was nice, clean, and well designed. Considering it was a Friday night and they were pretty busy, our food came out fairly quick and the presentation and taste was up to par. I ordered the Korean fried chicken. There was so much flavor in this dish! Will definitely come back.

    Loved the food and had an excellent server. She helped us with our menu selection and consistently checked in with us throughout the mean. Only downside was a large table seated next to us that was loud and distracting, from load discussion to the adults thinking the chopsticks were drumsticks
