Food was okay, a little over-flavored. Also slow to show up, and the sushi we ordered wasn’t rolled very well, it all fell apart.

Tiny portions of Edemame. It’s a cheap food, may as well give a decent size to appetite the table.

Desserts were tasty!

Fantastic experience overall! Both of our waiters, Matt and Chris, were more than accommodating as we were dining with our two year old son. The food was AMAZING.

My wife and I will definitely be back for a more “fulfilling” dining experience when we can lock down a babysitter.

Highly recommend this place for any occasion.

My son and I ate here on the last night of our holiday as it was close to the hotel. We were delighted with the delicious food that was served in fact we had seconds of two of the dishes because they were so good.

Waitress was excellent...hot food/small plates were excellent. The sushi is a train wreck. Came 45 mins after ordering and after 7 plus other small plates were served . Sushi also was fairly bland and uninteresting...even specialty rolls. Go there...just avoid the sushi!!!

The food was very good. Despite having been told that the kitchen prepares and serves food as it comes ready and some items may take longer than others, the service was exceptionally slow. There were very long periods of time when no server stopped at the table and it took a very long time to get our check and then to pay.

First time experience. We tried the edamame - fantastic!
Gulf shrimp and Bavette steak were delicious. We also had the dragon sushi rolls. Highly recommend the donuts and chocolate chip Blondie (both worth saving room for!!).
Fun atmosphere with an ocean view.

We had dinner here just four night ago and also last year. It is one of our favorite restaurants in Fort Lauderdale. The food this night was outstanding as always. HOWEVER: The service this night was poor. There were long waits between food. I did not get the Duck Bar Buns until I was finished with all my other food and after asking about then three different times. Then I got two orders of them. While we were waiting for out check, our waiter was standing at the table net to us giving a travel log to them concerning the Fort Lauderdale area. This went on for about 15 minutes. There were also numerous kids running around the tables and front steps right where dining was happening. I love kids, but this was not the place among other dinners. I will go back because every place can have an off night, but a little more professional setting would have been nice.

We typically love everything about S3. We booked a reservation through Open Table for an engagement celebration at 9pm. We decided to go in a earlier because we were in the area. My fiance put our name in and the host shared that it would be about a 35 minute wait, which we were thrilled because this was earlier than our original reservation. We sat outside and waited. The cocktail waitress was great.

Unfortunately the quoted wait time ended up being an 1 hour and 45 minutes. Then to top it off the host said that she had cancelled our original reservation since we were there waiting already. This was upsetting because we then had to wait much later. We would have preferred to try another place for cocktails before dinner if we had been quoted the true wait time. I think the communication between the host staff was poor.

When we were finally seated the service was rushed and our server was not knowledgeable about the menu. However, the food was spectacular. I would give it another try. I am just disappointed in the service portion of our visit.

S3 is one of our favorite places to dine when we vacation in Fort Lauderdale. The food is great. The wood grilled edemame is good and unique. My High & Dry cocktail was one of the best renditions of a rye I've ever had. The cauliflower was another favorite. The grilled shrimp was just OK and I would not have it again. It tasted too strong of lemon and the risotto was bland. BUT I would never be discouraged to go back because all else is always fantastic.

Good views and friendly staff and I liked their sake & lychee cocktail. However, the food was mediocre at best and thus waaay overpriced. $9 for edamame!!! I was also very dissappointed with the tuna stack which everyone raved about. It had fake crab, super disappointing. Overall, will not recommend or be back, there are better places with both good food & nice ocean views.
