S3 Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Had a wonderful birthday dinner with some girlfriends, our lovely waitress Natalie had some great recommendations. Small plates that are shareable within a group. We enjoyed the dragon roll and the Hana roll very much. Would highly recommend and would love to return on our next trip!
First time visit. We are in town for a meeting and decided to try the S3 restaurant. The seating was great with a view of the ocean. The service was very good. The food exceeded our expectations. The techno noise was numbing. The good news was that it was not loud.
We made a reservation for 23pm and when we arrived the first they told us is trat the kitchen was going to closed in 20 minutes and they start to rush us to chose the food and drinks.
It is a very expensive restaurant, around USD70 per person, so the service should have been much better.
Solid all around. My only complaint = food staging. Of note, waitress warned that sharing plates come out when kitchen finishes order. However, everything landed essentially at same time. I don’t mind which order, but having 5+ plates at same time was not ideal. We also requested fresh plates x2, but food quality and staff friendliness were both great.
My biggest issue with the experience is that I made a specific request on OpenTable for a table location given it was a birthday occasion. There was crazy traffic so we were all late arriving I admit, but the reservation time was very early evening and plenty of tables were available when we arrived. When seated the hostess walked directly past a table set up for a party our size that fit the request made....but that was not the table that was given. I was taken to the far side of the outdoor seating, pretty much isolated, in a windy spot and the complete opposite of what had been requested. When I asked, I was told that table was not available. If the party for that table had shown up shortly after I was seated, I would not have minded. What bothered me GREATLY was that those tables were then separated in to 2 smaller tables...remained empty...and then were put back together over 30min later for a different party. There was no reason that our party could not have been seated where I requested. It was as if the request made on OpenTable was of no importance to them at all.
The food was wonderful. Once they fixed the problem with the heaters, it warmed up (provided you weren't sitting at the corner with the wind tunnel effect, but we had someone from North Dakota in our party who graciously took that seat since it was just fine to him lol). The service was for the most part good- our waitress was lovely but we were so far over sometimes it took a while for her to make it over to us, but that was only a minor minor issue. It was generally a little loud but that was the only advantage of where we were- it was quieter than the other place, so that was good.
Overall right now I would go back. But candidly if I made a special request for a special occasion on OpenTable (like this time) and the restaurant doesn't honor it again, I would not recommend it for special occasions.
All 4 dishes were tasty and well prepared. The room and patio are lovely. Music a bit loud. Manhattans (cocktail) were not good- too sweet, probably too much vermouth. Prices were ok- the “small” dishes are not always “ small”. Five of them satisfied 3 adult men.
Don’t get the chicken salad!! My wife almost chocked on a couple chicken bones - dangerous!
If you order it , make sure you up the insurance policy....kidding!
Still sucked !
The Cuban sandwich is good, but you have to take a shower after you eat it...very greasy!! Cheers!!
Service is quick once you’ve ordered in that dishes arrive quickly (in no particular order) as the kitchen produces it randomly. The food is very good. Interesting, eclectic menu. We orders many items on 2 different occasions - once ar a table and another time at the bar. The only critique I have is that the waitstaff can disappear at times, drinks were very slow to come, and the bartender while seeming to never stop moving - takes forever to take your order & deliver your drink/take your order. My impression, having worked in the biz for years, is that they are understaffed. Solve that - and it’s Five stars.
Great atmosphere with amazing food. We had our first Christmas dinner here and would recommend others to come and enjoyed this as well. I had the filet with mashed potatoes and spinach and it was absolutely delicious. Our waitress was super sweet and was very attentive! The team here deserves 5 stars for the efforts!
Was there on Christmas Eve was very lively, food was excellent as was service. The place was packed and hopping. Great outdoor seating as well, weather was perfect.
For how busy the place was our waitress was very attentive and the food excellent from veggie picks to special burgers. We will be back again!
Arrived to the restaurant blind because me and my guests were mostly looking for a waterfront place to eat at. S3 amazed us. The tapas style fish & sushi options were all curiously delicious and had large portions for the price we paid. Would highly recommend S3 to anyone looking for a good ambience with great food.
