I never write reviews but I feel I need to in this case. We ate at S3 for my son's birthday last night. I ordered my salmon medium well (I know, but that is how I like it). It came very undercooked. I did not complain because quite honestly I was very full from the wonderful apps we had and I was having fun and did not want to make a big deal. My waiter noticed my fish as he cleared my plate. He must have told the manager because the manager came to apologize and he took the dish off our bill and gave us free dessert. I often read people complaining about service these days and I thought it was important to share this good story. I will certainly be going back there and I recommend it to all.
Love the rolls! The sword fish special salad was ridiculously salty however. Not the norm for S3.
We had the special summer menu (Dine Out Fort Lauderdale).
As always, perfect service, the most beautiful view and the very tasty 4-course menu had small portions but just enough!
Fantastic atmosphere. Delicious food. Outstanding service.
Awesome atmosphere and service as well as the spectacular view.
Was my birthday, was a good place I enjoyed.
This was our 3 rd time here. One of our favorite places when we come to ft Lauderdale !
The waitress was fantastic!
Awesome place on the water. Small portions for sharing were perfect. Everything comes out when it’s done so it’s literally fresh off the grill. Food is not served in any order. So you get as they are prepared.
Amazing as usual! Great food, great service, great views!
Chris’ service was absolutely seamless. Haven’t had seamless service in a long tome.
Hostess not friendly or accommodating. No AC! We were dripping with sweat. Service poor but food was good.
We were seated right away. Food was delicious! Gorgeous beach view!
For the price the I think the portion a really small but the food is really fresh and good. We did the 40 $ mimosa bar that was supposed to be real champagne but they ran out and switch to prosecco. We went there for the Veuve and it's second time they don't have it. Overall good food cheap on the portion and I wont do the mimosa bar for that price.
Had a blast. Food was excellent. Moët in the mimosas
We enjoyed a fun evening & an awesome happy hour, followed by a delicious dinner, celebrating our son’s achievements!
Everything was great, thank you
Sushi is fresh and delicious. Drinks are creative and very good. Sat at the bar. Friendly atmosphere
Courtney made our dining experience wonderful. She was super attentive and informative. She was patient, professional and fun.
It was a nice place for a lunch date with my friend. Took a while to get a server but once we had one he was great. Bed good room forever to come but other than that it was a good time.
Amazinnnng! You have to have sushi here! Service food everything is amazing
Great happy hour!
Food was delicious! Service was amazing! Has become one of our favorite spots.
We dined at S3 as part of the Dine Out Fort Lauderdale promotion -- $35 for a four course meal, a good deal. Our waiter was exceptional. We tried the balls and pomme frites for appetizers (the balls were very good, the fries were lukewarm). For the next course, we had rice cakes and sushi, both of which were excellent. Our main courses consisted of salmon and chicken. The salmon was nicely cooked and delicious. The chicken was a bit grisly, with skin and some bone (I'd probably order something else the next time). Portions were very generous, since we'd expected more of a tasting menu. Both desserts were just the right size and good to cleanse the pallet. It's too bad they don't promote the menu, since we had to specifically ask for it. Also, they were out of the wine we ordered, and like many restaurants, try to "upsell" you by suggesting a wine at $25 more than the wine we originally ordered, a pet peeve of mine.
As we walked up the valet offered to park our car for $8 fee. Even tho we mentioned we had dinner reservations, then offered to let up park for $10 to keep our key and park ourselves. My husband did not want to hand him the keys at this point we gave him the $10 to just be done with him! As we walk in the hostess was going to seat us at a high top I asked her for an outside table, she had issues with it, tho there were numerous tables available! Then as our friends arrived we are getting ready sit a rat ran up the stairs and bounced off our waiters leg. It gets better, we found a hair in our sushi under the ginger, so we couldn’t even think it was one of ours. We returned the plate and was comped for it. We will try a different restaurant when there are so many options in the area:(
Service was excellent and very thoughtful server brought a birthday surprise for the birthday girl. Our favorite dishes were the crispy tuna, chili rubbed steak and short rib. It was disappointing that they changed the mac and cheese. Its still pretty good, but the old version was much better. Sale goes for the octopus. Blondie desert was incredibly delicious.
Our server was David was awesome. He gave us some really great suggestions from the menu. We enjoyed our overall experience.
The Food was great, loved everything we ordered, our waiter was really good as well. Chill place to have brunch
Flexible and accommodating service.
Great food and amazing view.
Perfect setting for any occasion.
Menu selection is just average, ambiance is great
Great dinner. Would go back again
Also a great happy hour until 7
My go to place on the beach. The food, service, and ambiance are very good. The beach is visible from the outdoor seating area.
Amazing food ambiance and service like always
We enjoy brunch at S3, have been many times and we enjoy it!
This a great place. The music was great, the food amazing and the service was excellent. All the staff was wearing masks which made us feel very comfortable due to the current covid situation in Florida.
I’ve been here 3 times and it’s always terrific. Food, ambiance, view, service. Always a treat. Highly recommend!
Great spot and reserve an outdoor seat. Great people watching and breeze.
We ate here as part of the Dine Out Fort Lauderdale $35 4 course special. While we did expect smaller portions than if we just ordered off the regular menu, the entree of Salmon was VERY small. I did not take a photo, bit it was a little over 2" by 1", no exaggeration. The sauce was very good.
The appetizer I ordered was 2 goat cheese croquettes, I assume a regular order would be 4, they were delicious. I ordered the sushi tuna roll which consisted of 4 pieces. Asking the server, he confirmed the portions would be smaller, 8 would be served if ordered from the regular menu, understandable. Dessert was also included, I ordered the brownie, which consisted of 2 small servings with ice cream, one was as hard as a rock.
Yes it is August, it is South Florida, but they had the sliding doors open to the patio which also had seating, this meant we were sweating the entire time.
We were in and out in about 50 minutes, I felt very rushed as he had mentioned from the beginning he needed our entire order at once.
I will say everything I ate was very delicious, just unhappy with the size of the salmon served as the entree, and the server did not indicate from the beginning all portions would be smaller.
Two years ago ,we at at two of the restaurants at The Breakers Palm Beach, during the Taste of Palm Beach. All portions were the same size as the regular menu.
The menu seems to have changed at S3. Several of our favorite dishes are no longer available or changed not for the better. Service still great, but help is needed to recapture the delicious menu items we used to love.
Server was great.
