The food was not good at all and everyones dishes came out at different times so it made it frustrating with everyone at the table. Also, the service was not good. Meals took a long time to be delivered and it seems the waitress had too many tables to handle.

Nice setting, However if there is a loud crowd voices travel. Nevertheless, worth a visit as the food was exceptional.

Overall it was a good experience. Tasty food and good service. The waiter assigned to us is nice and courteous. Love the area outside because I can see across the street the beach. The place is cosy, the table beside ours was loud but we didn’t mind as I enjoy the whole scenery outside. I surely recommend the place and the food and we will be back.

S3 was less than I had expected. The food was ok not spectacular. The service was excellent. The view of the beach was nice despite the rain. We tried it, but not really sure it's worth making another trip.

Food was great— waitress was not the best- temperature is weird since they leave doors and windows open so kind of humid inside, but overall the food was amazing (especially the octopus)

Sushi rolls did not look great and were just ok. Great Brussels sprouts. Wine presentation is ridiculous. Horrible pour. Even water was lukewarm. Surly waitress.
Food served by runners who just drop plates and leave. Been before and it was great. Something changed. Won’t ever go back.

Great food. The swordfish was best fish dish I’ve ever had. Empanadas, mozzarella (buratta ?) and Brussel sprouts were also fantastic.

Only complaint was there was a group of women who walked up smoking and they were told they couldn’t smoke on patio. They put it out and ate but when they were done eating they stood on the steps smoking which the wind blew the smoke at us. I thought smoking was supposed to happen in the sidewalk off the property

I have been eating at S3 since they opened. I have brought clients to the restaurant, family, friends etc and am normally 1000% satisfied and pleased: Yesterday was a completely different experience from the horrible service to the horrendous food and more. Tonight I called the restaurant to speak with the manager as I did not want to do it in front of my friends and the manager on duty tonight said I was intoxicated (not true at all) and essentially called me a liar about what I ate yesterday. I will never recommended this place.

Our favorite “go to” restaurant and the food is the main reason. New dishes are constantly introduced and the old favorites remain. The service is always exceptional.
AND they offer half-price bottles of wine on Tuesdays with dinner. Enough said.

Attentive service with great food. The view can't be beat and the staff is always genuine. The music was a little louder than usual but for a 10th visit I am still considering this one of my go beachfront favs.
