    Great food and shared for the table . Service could have been better . We didn’t get our sake until 30 min after we ordered it and in the mean time 3 apps came to the table . Servers were busy but inattentive.

    Food and ambience were perfection. The Burrata was nothing short of amazing. I highly recommend. Our waiter was off but the another waitress was so nice and helpful and compensated. 5 Stars and would definitely go back.

    Overall, we were just disappointed. We are locals and eat at S3 regularly. The food came out quickly and it was fine. The waiter was polite but lacked proper training. When our entire meal arrived and our drinks from the bar never came, we just canceled them. It took an additional 10 minutes for the inattentive manager to acknowledge our waiter after my wife had to get up from the table and intervene. We won’t be going back any time soon.

    Slow service. Food was not good. Steak was rare when we asked for it to be medium well. Mac and cheese had a funky taste. Sushi had little or no taste. Paid too much for poor quality food.

    Location and table were outstanding. Food was good but entree was lukewarm warm and in a skillet, not sure how that’s possible. Service was slow possibly due to being busy. Valet parking was a blessing! Would definitely go back, maybe just an off night.

    I sat there for a half hour after our reservation began begging every server for a glass of water and they all said it wasn't their table and they would send someone. Finally after the 3rd time a server took potty on me and let me order a sushi roll and water. It was terrible. The sushi has gone down hill since the pandemic. The service is atrocious and it wasn't even that busy. We left after the one roll and decided to go elsewhere for dinner as sitting there begging was insufferable. It's a shame. It used to be good.

    Reserved this place for a special birthday celebration. All went well for the appetizer and the sushi roll. Then cane time for the main course which did not arrive for nearly a hour after we finished the sushi. It was cold when it arrived and was dry and the rice was sticky. Not a great experience and I won’t be returning ever again!

    Recently visited Sun Sand & Surf (S³) on the beach in Ft. Lauderdale, and it was an absolute delight. The setting is nothing short of incredible, with the ocean breeze complementing the vibrant ambiance. What really stood out was the fantastic food, especially the sushi offerings – they were outstanding. Fresh, flavorful, and beautifully presented, each piece was a testament to the chef's skill. It's a must-visit spot for anyone looking to enjoy great food in a stunning beachside setting.

    Started with the octopus (slightly over, but flavours were fantastic) and edamame (the smell of the sesame oil was amazing and they were very tasty!). Shared a Burrata salad with heirloom tomatoes and it was awesome! Also had a grilled salmon and it was really flavourful. Washed it down with a nice Barolo. Great restaurant!

    Restaurant has a great vibe and location is amazing!!! Overall food was very good with the exception of the chicken fried rice. Three people from our party had it and no one cared for it…disappointed that it came with fried chicken and taste was quite bland…wish they had grill chicken as an option.

    Beautiful decor, and inviting space. This was the second time we dined here. The menu is inventive and the food is very good. We love the charred edamame and the skirt steak with chimichurri. Also enjoyed the Thai tuna sushi roll and the charred Caesar salad. For dessert, the passion fruit panna cotta was very good, and the blondie was excellent. The servers were friendly and attentive. The hostess manager made an error checking us in for our reservation. Mistakes happen. But, after waiting 30 minutes to be seated, I politely inquired for an update, and she was very rude and dismissive. Like, very. So rude that her staff had to apologize for her. Not acceptable. Someone needs to be sent for a retraining in customer service. Kindness matters.
