It was really good. I wish that, since I chose “birthday” on the selections, and I added additional notes, that someone would have gone the extra step. Maybe no one reads the notes.

Beyond that, everything was spectacular.

Overall dining experience was great however I was taken aback by the automatic 18% gratuity for a party of 5. I understand the auto gratuity for large parties of 10 or more but not for 5. It felt very “south beach” to me.

Michele was amazing! I mentioned I was pregnant & saving room for a good dessert. She surprised me a fun berry alcohol free drink & dessert on the restaurant. Fantastic service & our food was amazing! Our 3 yr old son even loved his buttered noodles.

The food and service was excellent. Our group will.definitely be returning to try some other great-sounding items from the very enticing lunch menu, though it would be hard to beat the octopus dish I had. It was perfectly grilled and served with the most refreshing salsa verde and crispy tostones. And who could beat the ocean view? We chose to dine indoors as it was very windy, but that did not detract from the scenery - great seating, quiet enough for an enjoyable conversation, and an always welcome open kitchen.

Located steps from the beach, S3 offers stellar ocean views paired with a creative menu filled with savory tapas and crafty cocktails. I was staying at the Hilton so while this restaurant was convenient, it was honestly the food that brought me back 3 times. If you're a Hendricks gin fan, the Matchmaker is your drink. Made with lemongrass and coconut water it's like you're hydrating while you dehydrate! The Rice Cakes (fried rice squares topped with fresh spicy tuna and a sliver of avocado & onion) were my favorite on the menu, (ordered them all 3 times I dined there), but I also recommend the Duck Bao Buns, Goat Cheese Croquettes, and the Mac & Cheese. Also, if you go for brunch be sure to ask what the donut of the day is!

A great oceanside spot! We were able to enjoy dinner on the outdoor patio despite the gloomy weather thanks to a nice overhang that kept us sheltered from the elements. Our servers were great with recommendations and attentiveness, which made for an excellent meal. We tried 4 tapas plates for two of us, which had us pleasantly full by the end of dinner. The short rip empanadas (special) were the highlight of the meal for sure. The cocktails are on-point as well!

Great time at a great location looking at the ocean. The sushi is what I love here as they are a bit creative with their rolls without becoming ridiculous like so many do! Cocktails were nice and the candle for the birthday was appreciated. Well done once again...

The food and atmosphere were great. However, the service was rather poor. I have eaten here several times in the past and have generally had good service. Our server brought the wrong food, we had to ask for water three times, and condiments twice. Unfortunately, seems as if the service has declined.

Great meal and drinks. Food was definitely not the average Sushi bar (though classic Sushi options available). Food will bring us back again.
Great outdoor seating area - very comfortable. Not a place for a quiet, intimate gathering, though. Loud, upbeat music is everywhere!

Call me snobby but this just wasn’t what I expected after celebrating completion of whole30 . If you know anything about the diet, I avoided gluten dairy alcohol and added sugars for 30 days so I was looking to indulge. Sadly, I tried multiple entrees and was disappointed. Sushi, goat cheese balls, pork buns, dessert. I waited for something to shock me. The wine and ambiance were great but I would not go back.

Food and ambiance is wonderful.
The only bummer was that the sangria had little or no alcohol. It tasted watered down. Other than that it’s a great go-to place. I’ll just order a martini next visit.

We decided to go to S3 well in advance of actually going as we were visiting from Toronto. The food was great and the ambiance was amazing but there was a live band for the “Pink Moon” night which was VERY loud to the point we could not even hear each other speak. The food was a bit pricy and although delicious, I ordered the sushi and I have had better.
