Great location, reasonable prices given the view and location. The brussel sprouts are delicious. Excellent place for daily specials and drinks.

We like S3 very much. Fun menu and nice to sit outdoors. Wish they didn't change recipe for the octopus appetizer. We all liked it much more before. Was disappointed with my iced tea. Was supposed to be flavored but what I was served black tea. I said something but was told this is the flavored tea. Other than that. Our food and service was excellent.

The experience was ruined from the start by the hostess. We asked for a table outside, and were told they were all reserved, although; they all appeared to be empty. When I made the reservation, there was nothing that indicated or gave the option to sit outside. The food was mediocre at best. Our waiter was the only saving grace. He was nice and attentive. Would not recommend this restaurant which is a shame because the location is beautiful, but you would and should expect more.

We had a dinner inside the restaurant. It was everything ok. When we decide go outside, the service changed so much. We sit in one table, we waited for ours drinks with my boyfriend's birthday cake, but one person told us that in that table we could't only drink ( the other waitress said something diferent, because we were still eating the cake). We moved to other table, and we waited 15 minutes for ours drinks. Mine was ok, but my boyfriend's drink (gin tonic) was bad.
Dinner was perfect, realy tasty. The service was ok. The restaurant is realy nice. I will back, but the next time only inside. The service is realy diferent.
Before we left, some people fought. I was about to leave because there was no security to control them. They were alcholized.

The food at S3 was very good. But about halfway thru our dinner the service staff started dragging tables around so they could power wash the patio. It wasn’t that late and we were not the only other diners in the restaurant at that time. We felt like they hoped we would just finish and leave. Not the atmosphere anyone should expect from a restaurant of this caliber.

Very nice sushi rolls. The wood grill seemed like a good choice but no one in our group tried it. Server was great. Hostess was a little pretentious about moving us to a different table. The 18% “service charge” automatically added to our group of 5 wasn’t explained so we assumed it was the gratuity.
I would definitely return.

The location is great; directly across from Ft Lauderdale beach. Sit on the deck and watch the waves roll in. And then...wait for your main course...and then, wait some more for your second guest's food to roll out (they told us they don't serve food at the same time)...and then, wait some more for more for the third guest's food to arrive, by which time yours is cold.

The restaurant is more vibrant and fun outside since if has a bar feel to it. The restaurant inside is massive with little ambience and a lot of noise. Food is mediocre. The filet came accompanied with pickles, a tomato, and some lettuce. The burrata came on top of car to (not a good combination). The sushi was mediocre too, with the ratio of rice to fish excessive.

I am unsure about the high ratings, but it must be the location (in front of beach). The food is slightly better than a traditional chain you see in suburbs. My thought is that place attracts precisely the suburbia that is looking to dine in the heart of fort Lauderdale.

Steak 954 has better food (quite good, with some minor mistakes), and is close by to S3 (note: although worst service than S3).

We had been regulars about a year ago and decided to go back for my wife’s birthday. Not the same, food wasn’t nearly up to what it was. Menu changed and seemed so did the quality. Extremely disappointing! Great place and scenery but service, food quality and bartender was subpar.

 (New Orleans)·Dined on November 4, 2017

We had a small hiccup with the hostess who would not seat my husband until "the entire party was there and if you are late you could lose your table" We were there - ten minutes early- the two of us - I was in their ladies room which had a line due to an "issue" inside. No reason for her to be short. It would have been much easier - and profitable for S3 to seat him and let him order a drink while I waited. After we were seated and the hubs calmed down it was fine.

Visiting from out of town - I found S3 on open table and it was close to our hotel. It was a fantastic unexpected surprise. Carlos was our waiter and was fantastic! Everything from the edamame to the kale salad and Bavette steak was so delicious. I highly recommend it! It was a little loud - but a good energy loud... not obnoxious!

My wife and I are foodies. We love coming to Fort Lauderdale but have been disappointed with the restaurants we tried until now. Last night, S3 changed all that!

We now have a favorite Fort Lauderdale restaurant. The food was amazing, the ambience was perfect. Our server, Victor, took great care of us. He was the perfect balance of professionalism and personality.
