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.

Ordered the “small plates” and they were interesting, good, and varied. Our favorite was the short rib empanada plate. Our server was also engaging and helpful. We will definitely keep coming back.

The absolutely worse service ever. I would be utterly embarrassed if I ran this joke of a restaurant. Bar tenders pay more attention to their friends at the bar than the actual guests ...walked past my empty drink a dozen times. Free food and drinks for friends all night and didn't care to service paying customers. Shut it down and fire staff is my sugestion.

Great location - our server was fantastic and the food was a refreshing change from the usual beach fare.
We were late getting there for our reservation, but they sat us promptly, no problem, outside overlooking the beach. Obviously the best view from the restaurant. Prosecco, sushi and tapas plates were the perfect fare for a hot Florida night.

Loved everything about S3. The food was prepared perfectly. The presentation was nice. Our service was excellent. The patio seating with beach view was charming. The overall value for a beachfront restaurant was great. Will definitely be back and have already recommended to friends and family.

Love the ambiance, love the decor, love the drinks and really really love the happy hour. But besides the appetizers I don’t really love the food here. The entrees are just ehh. I’ll keep coming back there has to be one I love sooner or later.

Waited way too long for food. One person in our party didn’t get her food until everyone was done eating - and she ordered the special! They comped her meal, but this ruined the meal.

It's alright to have an expensive restaurant in ft Lauderdale, but the amount of food we got was far from filling. We almost thought of ordering two extra appetizers, but ended up just getting a snack elsewhere.
the food is great, taste wise, just not enough.
