Food was amazing and so was the ambiance. We went there for dinner with our 7 month old and it was quiet enough where he almost fell asleep.

Server was excellent, but it was oddly hot inside. After 15 minutes I was basically sweating. The "large plates" were not worth the quality. Asked for a medium rare steak filet and received a very rare steak filet. The sushi was excellent. I would recommend this place for the sushi only most likely.

Really nice decor, seats, and location. Plenty of distancing, nice upscale restaurant.
Maybe I made wrong choices, the sushi was just OK, and my grilled Octopus was very chewy.
The brevatta(?) steak however was very good.
The Mac n cheese was not to my taste unfortunately.

Fantastic Restaurant. Food was amazing. Everything we ordered was devoured. Highly recommend wok charred edamame and goat cheese croquettes. Sushi tower was delicious. The Babette steak was perfect. Our waitress was fabulous. Oh Green Geisha cocktail is a must.
Will most definitely be back.

Tracy was a lovely server. When faced with my multiple food allergies, she communicated effectively with the chefs and I was able to eat with no ill effects. My husband LOVED his burger and could barely finish it. This was my second time dining at S3, as my son who lives in Ft. Lauderdale had taken me on a previous visit. And of course looking out over the ocean just tops the culinary experience!

Had a reservation for over 3 weeks in advance. Requested outdoor seating, 7:30pm. All confirmed. They sat us on the sidewalk in front of the store nextdoor to the restaurant. No lights. Server suggested we take our phone, turn on the flashlight, and place it on the candleholder cup downward if we wanted light.
The drinks came to us warm. Ever drink a warm martini? YECH.
There is no rhyme or reason as to how the food is served. You get a main course before you get an appetizer. Your mac and cheese come out so early they are cold by the time your beef "bavette" shows up (bavette must mean overpriced. 4 bites of stringy steak for $20)
We have been coming to this restaurant for over 7 years every time we are in FLL. It has gone steadily downhill. This will probably be our last. There are too many other restaurants in the city to be subject to this poor quality and service. Pity.

We stop at S3 whenever we are looking to sit outside in a beautiful setting for a nice treat. The service is always top notch and the food, though limited, is tasty. This is a classy little venue for those looking for a different experience that are ok with a little bit high price tag.

Burger, sushi and Brussel sprouts were very good. Fries mediocre, splits of Preseco outrageously expensive and the desserts are best left alone, lacked flavor.

It happened to be happy hour on a Saturday, which was a nice surprise. We were just looking for small bites, and they had great options on the HH menu, even gluten free for me. Mixed drinks are always delicious at S3 with fresh herbs and fruit if you choose, those were half off as well. S3 is always consistently good and in a fantastic location.

This is our favorite restaurant in town! The daily specials are always great, and items on the regular menu are delicious too. We especially like that we can get outside dining facing the ocean, since I am not quite "comfortable" with eating inside anywhere yet.
