Everything was great until the next tables dog kept sniffing at my table. I am not anti-dog but I do not appreciate dog hair near my food.

Fantastic setting facing the ocean with comfortable shady outdoor seating on the broad terrace. Plenty of space between tables. The service was excellent and friendly, and the food was yummy. Highly recommend!

An energized beach bar restaurant. Service was rushed. Food was delicious with several small plates. Our waiter was rushing us through our meal. Wine glasses remained empty and had to pour ourselves. Dessert was a vegan dessert but not labeled as such and tasted of cardboard and paste. Worth the experience but not rushing back here

were actually there the day before for lunch and had an excellent hamburger and a sushi dish....the night of the reservation we had a grilled caesar salad and a filet mignon with a creamy potato and sprouts garnish....the salad was good (we added shrimp, which were tasty) and the steak was tender....the garnish was very sparse with few sprouts and even fewer potatos...my wife had a pear cocktail that she said was very good and i had two glasses of vino.....both occasions we had attentive wait staff that were friendly.....nice indoor table that still had a view of the ocean.....primarily an asian restaurant, though i did not see it advertised as such. fine, but overpriced.

The menu was varied and fresh. The service was awesome and they were able to make several good recommendations. Although it was an adult-centered restaurant, it was still kid-friendly. Highly recommend this restaurant!

Food is as good as I remembered but service was just ok, hoping it was just because they were overwhelmed w/Easter crowd. I don’t understand why these restaurants don’t want to make money on cocktails, give a decent pour & folks typically come back for more...

This place has a great view and ambiance. Tables were socially distanced and masks worn. Server was sweet and attentive. Valet/hosts were very nice. My primary reason for giving this place less than five stars is that the food was good but just sort of so-so.

The food was very good and our server was excellent! I had written a note to tell them that it was my friend’s birthday and everyone missed it! On top of everything it was VERY UNCOMFORTABLE in the restaurant due to the heavy winds outside! Management should of been aware of this and closed the doors because I felt like I was eating in a wind tunnel!

Great food. It was a windy evening and we were seating at a windy table and they wouldn’t move us until we really insisted. Otherwise a great place.

Double date. Very windy night, tables next to the building were fine. Food was excellent, service was good. We ordered a bunch of small dishes and sushi’s and shared. There was a loud party seated next to us and music was also loud but overall we really enjoyed our experience.

Had a delightful lunch outside at S3. We had the Chili-rubbed Bavette Steak with Yucca Fries and the Riceless Sushi Roll wth Tuna, Crab, Cream Cheese, Avocado, Tempura Flake, Pickled Mushrooms, Cucumber & Ponzu. The steak was cooked perfectly. The riceless roll was a great low carb option.

Our waiter Matt was excellent.

Sat us at an amazing table outside. Arrived 10 minutes early and they promptly sat us. Server was friendly and knowledgeable on the menu. The manager stopped by to make sure everything was to our satisfaction and talked to us for a few minutes. Thank you Lawrence!
