I spent my birthday weekend at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach resort which was amazing and ended up eating at S3 three times during our stay! Had lunch there followed by dinner on the day we arrived and then had brunch on Sunday before we left! All of the meals were amazing! The staff was just outstanding. We had three different servers for each meal starting with Javier, then Devon and then Amy. All were fantastic! Some of the amazing dishes we had were the goat cheese croquettes which were extraordinary, had them twice! Tried the dragon roll from their sushi menu which was fantastic. My friend had a Bacon cheeseburger that was perfectly cooked, huge and amazing!
Bavette steak and grilled octopus were my dinner choices - two separate dishes but I had them together as my own surf and Turf. My friend had the short ribs and polenta. We were both delighted with our choices. Such great flavors and their wood grill is amazing!! Tuna Benedict and the chicken and waffles were our Sunday brunch choices with the bottomless bubbly bar - what a deal and all high end champagnes such as Moët & Veuve Cliquot. Outstanding!! Cannot wait to come back!!

Great patio! Happy hour food and drinks great! Service was good, but could be a bit better. Live music was fun while sitting by the beach!

Wish I’d seen the tables be cleaned and sanitized better! Seemed a bit haphazard....

The food was excellent, I had sushi and my husband had a brisket salad. We had a great view of the beach and our waitress was very nice and friendly.

We are avid and devoted patrons of S3, always enjoying ambiance, food and atmosphere whether happy hour or dinner time haven't yet tried the brunch but it is on our to do list. Every so often and we have been noticing an increase lately, hosts are not as welcoming and friendly as they used to be - there are at least three negative reviews alerting of this issue in the last month so clearly, it has not been just our experience. This time, Indy truly has outdone herself by approaching our table and assuming erroneously that we have "sat ourselves" made inappropriate comments that ultimately caused our party to leave and find an alternative restaurant for the evening. My expectations are rather low during these difficult COVID times and I understand stress and undue duress that staff everywhere is under nowadays, just wish that smile, respect, good manners and grace are not permanently replaced by uncorrected rudeness: Managers please reward those who can perform at their best and modify attitudes where necessary.
I am certain, that once masks go down in the future, we'll be able to see those smiles once again - let's blame this one on the COVID :)

I came with a reservation for my birthday. The your hostess seated us with as if she have walked out of middle school. The waitress never gave her name . She had a bad day and no smile to share. The quinoa extremely salty and the Tofu was rubber. When she asked I stated I could cook a better dish. She was going to let the Chef know. No manager came. I felt ill so i did not eat all of my dinner. I asked for to go box. As I got up to visit the ladies room "again" I was compelled to sign a pad ( the check) with why phone number two receive a bill . I never did . The manager never came so see what he could do to make the experience better. I still had NO receipt. I called the manager the next day. " Charles" was going to email me the receipt. HE never did. A week later, I don't have a receipt but they served me food that made me sick on my birthday and charged a hefty tip that I did NOT include. I wonder how many others are swindled into this type of service ??

Great experience out! Due to Covid-19 this was my first date out with my partner so we were hesitant to go out.

Our waiter (I believe his name was Eduardo) was very attentive, everyone was very kind, and food and drinks were brought out quick. Everyone working were wearing gloves and masks. They also had wipes and sanitizer as you enter the premises which was very nice to see. It was not over crowded but the place was full. Seatings were spread apart(at least 6ft). They also had live music which was nice...

One thing I found a little weird and annoying was that happy hour was only for curtain areas. But other than that everything was worth going out!

Due to the new curfew it was a bit chaotic but that’s understandable. They have to have everyone out by 10pm for the 11pm curfew.

S3 has a very efficient and thorough safety protocol. The meal was delicious and the atmosphere very relaxing and inviting. We had the short ribs and salmon dinners. Both were excellent. Service was excellent.

The hostess seemed quite aggravated that I used Open Table to book a reservation. She purposely would not give me a table outside because I used Open Table. And treated me poorly. Very Upsetting

We were seated next to a table full of drunk mid 20 year olds who decided to start saying rude and disrespectful things very loudly about my wife, son and I where we could clearly hear it. We are a young, fit and successful couple with a beautiful 7 month old boy. According to the indirect verbal onslaught from the table next to us my wife “ruined any chance she has of actually enjoying her life and has thrown away any hope she has at a life because she had a child in her 20’s. What a terrible thing to do to yourself”.

Made reservations for indoor table, arrived and they said it would be a wait and did we mind outdoors. We choose first available which was outdoors hot and sweaty dinner.

Sushi menu consists of 5 yea five different types of sushi, for a place that touts itself as a sushi place sure would be great to have choices greater than that of a grocery store seafood sushi counter. Ordered the special of the day appetizer at 8pm and but of course they were all out. Ordered sushi tower, it was barely edible. Tasted stale like made days ago. Then finished with dessert carrot cake cheesecake. It had to be frozen for a year before serving. It was absolutely not edible. Crust was chewy, cheesecake tasted like eating sugary sand.

After picking this place for it's high Mark's, I would say aside from the service the entire experience was just awful. Worse than a typical tourist trap. Very very disappointed.

So my friend noticed I was drinking out of a glass that had a crack down the whole side. I showed the waiter. He didn’t apologize or offer to replace my vodka. Had the same waiter before. Not good.
