Not a dining experience. Too much of a rush you in and out feel. Food comes at all times with no rhyme or reason. Steak may come before salad, who knows. Mine came 10 minutes before my wife and hers was 5 minutes before my daughter so we all ate alone and watched each other.

Good food. Good chef. Bad restaurant.

Great view
Food good
But took 15 min to get my wife a glass of wine
The waitress seemed flustered and did not know specials and sushi roll etc
She was off.
And the table felt scrunched on the edge if canapy and very close to neighboring table as if it was not placed properly

We were seated on the side patio which I definitely not as nice as the main part of the restaurant where you can see the ocean sitting inside or outside. Our server was great - very friendly and helpful. Sushi is very good and brunch entrees are nice too.

The service was a disaster. Since I called trying to get the reservation, people didn’t want to help Us; I made the reservation for 2 through the app (open table) because it didn’t allow me to reserve for 16. I made lots of calls trying to get it and the first time they hold on the phone; at the end we decided arrive anyway.

The food took forever to arrive, and we didn’t get even water after we arrived.

Besides the waitress (Fatima) was flirting with the guys and offered to give her phone number even to a man and after she said add me on Instagram (the service was so bad an unprofessional).

The music wasn’t good neither; it was boring.

Very disappointed. It used to be one of my favorite places. And this is unfortunate because the food is delicious.

We absolutely loved this place. We had the brussel sprouts to start- delish. Since my mom doesn’t like seafood we split the roasted chicken. My mom said she thought about that meal all night, it was so good. I also had a roll that was excellent! Highly recommend.

Food was decent but service was terrible. Our server never checked on us through our meal. I was there to celebrate my partners birthday which I noted on my reservation and it wasnt even mentioned. I won't return.

Great food, generally great service and overall enjoyable restaurant. S3 is always a must visit every time we are at Fort Lauderdale Beach. Very convenient to Conrad, Hilton & W.

Small plates are a great way to enjoy the many flavors offered by S3. Well worth the visits.

Kudos to the Kitchen for such tasty dishes.

Michael our server was great.I wa disappointed that mac and cheese was taken out of brunch menu. Not impressed with chicken and waffles. It was dry, I thought it was going to be a big piece of chicken,instead I got chicken nuggets. No presentation,it look pain.
save money on Fiji water use tap instead, they serve it in a jar with mint.
Will have to go back for dinner to enjoy mac and cheese.

The restaurant was very festive for Easter. We went for brunch and ordered the chicken & waffles, Tuna Benedict and guava French toast. The French toast was dry & almost stale tasting but the other two items were great particularly the tube. Our server was just okay - she didn’t assist with the French toast issue. Still love the ambience at this restaurant and a great go to for Fort Lauderdale beach spots.

Food was substandard. We were seated outside and when it went dark could barely see our food, had sushi and it was not very nice, just lots of rice, roast chicken was ok but served with a pile of mush, Mac and cheese was ok. Salad was covered with too much dressing and poorly presented. Service was very slow, almost 2 hours for the above food between 3 people. 40 mins for our first drink and only drink. Cosmopolitan was not good either. I would not recommend.

I have dined here many times before and enjoyed it very much. I’ve also had multiple birthday celebrations here as well. This most recent visit was sub-par. The food took over 45 min for a sushi roll and the roll was not to its normal standard missing 2 of the 5 ingredients. The wrong by the glass wine was poured and it took 20 min to find someone to get the check. I’m not sure if this was an “off” night however the dining experience was not great this time as it had been in the past.

S3 has the full pancake of great location, outdoor areas and interesting menu option. Specialty cocktails were fun, tapas style menu was great. Only reason it didn’t get 5 stars across the board from me was the disappointing salmon kamikaze role- plenty of fresh salmon in it but not much else, poorly rolled, Ive had better. Service was great and location on the beach more than made up for it.
