    Their menu was incomplete. Our reservation was at 3:15 and we have been told that we only can order from the full menu after 4:30. Their available menu was only 3-4 options available. We reserved a table for 5 outside but our table was inside hardly seeing the view. The food was ok. The sushi’s were good but the bbq chicken was too salty.

    We were not overly impressed with our dinner last night. The food was just ok. Nothing to go back for. We ordered the goat cheese croquettes - ok. The Korean Chicken bites was the best thing that we ordered. The burrata salad, skirt steak and carrots were underwhelming. Sad to say we will not return.

    Extremely slow service by our server, he didn’t engage in conversation and wasn’t friendly despite us telling him about being excited for our 45th wedding anniversary. Other servers we observed were friendly and got customers in and out much quicker. We waited over 1/2 hour just to get our bill. Terrible experience on a night of celebration.

    Had an absolutely fantastic evening at S3! The sushi was incredibly fresh, the service was top-notch, and to top it off, they surprised me with a delightful birthday blondie – a sweet touch! I'd like to highlight the accommodating staff; despite my 7:45 reservation, there was no rush, and I enjoyed a leisurely evening until 10:45. Definitely recommend this place

    My first time at S3 last night. Great that they offer discounted valet parking. Very lively inside with cool music and there was also a DJ outside. Everyone from the hostess to the servers were really sweet. I had the Salmon which was delicious and my husband had the noodle bowl which was tasty. Next time I'm going to try the steak and sushi.

    We booked a reservation a month ago in anticipation of the long weekend. When we showed up for our 8pm time, were asked to wait in the bar. 30min wait staff finally called us, to lead us to a table that someone had just walked in & taken. Staff at desk were unorganized, chaotic. There were empty two tops, but staff had no idea. We were told that we might not get a table till after 9. Reservations mean little, whoever shows up gets seated first. A mess.

    We had a reservation for 8 pm and we were seated almost on time. Sad we couldn't get outside ocean front seating as we requested in reservation. We got our seats in a patio without the view. It seems like the staff does what they can and not what they should.
