This restaurant has beautiful surroundings, wonderful ambience, friendly staff, good food, and a great view of the ocean. Most of the prices are very reasonable, however, the cocktails were rather expensive. We paid $15 each for Martinis. This restaurant is an excellent choice to entertain out of town guests.

Friends came from Miami to dine with us. They loved it. Atmosphere is very cool as we sat looking at the ocean at very close proximity. We shared several tapas; brussel sprouts, shrimp, tuna tower, scallops, and pulled pork. All were very good. Great time with great friends. Proud to take them to a lovely Ft Lauderdale venue, as they have many in Miami. They loved it!

Excellent overall!
Very attentive staff.
Noise level was higher than preferred making basic conversational tone challenging to say the least.
All food items were excellent!
Drink prices are exorbitantly high.

We went for a small birthday celebration. The hostess was very attentive to my asking for a god table & sat us where we all had a view. We came from a long day starving & when we told the waiter the appetizers arrived quickly. The food was great. Only 2 dishes were average. Very good birthday dinner!

This place was perfect! We wanted sushi and the beach and this more than delivered. Right on the beach, with beautiful scenery, each thing we ordered arrived in beautiful fashion, and tasted just as delicious. I would highly recommend this place!

Great vibe on the Saturday night we dined, though best for a group of 4+ as so much to share and 2 people is just not enough to fully enjoy.

1st time there and did not disappoint. Even more impressive than the food was the Service. Victor did a great job of being there when you needed him and absent when you didn't. He was very knowledgable about the food, wine and cocktails. I would recommend Victor and S3

As always great! Had a hiccup in the reservation....We requested table #64 for a party of four. Then changed to party of two prior to our arrival. When we arrived, we were told that the table was previously reserved for a party of four and was not available. The table sat empty the entire time we were there and we suspect, that when we changed to a party of 2 that instead of revising our reservation, a new one was made leaving our original reservation in the system.

Great food on an early Sunday evening. It was very busy but our service was quick. We had two sushi roles which were very fresh and two appetizers, chip and onion dip and tempura cauliflower. Very tasty!!

S3 is as essential to a Fort Lauderdale as the beach or Los Olas. A real gem and amazing fun and delicious food. I make it a point to go every time I’m in town! Can’t recommend it enough.

EXCELLENT sushi ! Amazing quality sushi. Scallops very fresh. Short ribs also delicious. Hard to have a restaurant that does both seafood and meat so well! A bit loud and tables close together so we heard all of other tables girls night out conversation.

A stylish restaurant, beautifully created. Food was very good overall, though the menu was a little confusing for us as first timers there. But our waitress was very helpful. As the dishes "came at you" a bit haphazardly & rapidly ,the next time we will order a few dishes at a time & build up our meal. But overall a lovely experience, more fine dining than most, but not too "precious" about it! Excellent wine list!
