The outdoor seating provided a beautiful view of the beach and the ocean. The bottomless mimosa brunch was definitely the highlight and worth the value.

The waitress was excellent but the bar staff made us wait over 25 min for our drink. Granted they are just getting back into the swing of things so we let it slide!!!!!

S3 provides a wonderful brunch experience. The food and service were excellent. Do yourself a favor and try the Fujiyama roll. It's both delicious and Instagram-worthy. Our server, Sarah was great. The Sunday Bottomless Bubbles are a great value. Jen at the Champagne bar takes great care of you. Highly recommended!

The setting is great. I did request, weather permitting, to be outside which is not where we were seated. We came to find out that Happy Hour did not apply to our inside booth. This was a bit upsetting.
The service & food was very good.

S3 is always great for a delicious meal with a fabulous view. We felt very comfortable dining with the arrangement of tables and staff/server protection. When you feel ready to enjoy a night out - S3 should be at the top of your list of restaurants.

Despite the craziness we are facing as a nation, we went out to celebrate hubby’s birthday. Ambiance was great! Food was delicious. Love eating tapas/small plates. Andrew provided excellent service. I’m glad we got out! Will return. But once these restrictions are lifted. Would love to try brunch.

We were seated quickly, and approached by our waitress almost immediately. The noise level was high as the singer/guitarist had his amp volume turned up to try to cover the road noise from A1A. We ordered small plates and were advised that they would come to the table as they were readied. Food was good and fairly fast. Once dessert was served we didn't see our waitress again. We asked the hostess station to send her to us with our check, but after another prolonged wait we simply asked the waiter at the next table to bring our check. Waitress showed up as we were leaving completely unaware and unapologetic. It was a very slow night in the restaurant.

Besides the beautiful scenery when you sit outside. The food and service were phenomenal. Highly recommend the edamame, and the chicken and waffles on the brunch menu. Andrew was very attentive and gave us his suggestions of what he likes in the menu which is where we got the idea of the chicken and waffles.

S3 is our favorite restaurant, and our experience last Saturday night did not disappoint! Our servers were Johnny and Julie, and they were super friendly and attentive. As usual, we shared the daily special sushi roll to start, and then each had the special fish of the day, which on this night was grouper in a sauce with some shrimp. As always, everything was delicious! And while the noise level on a Saturday night may be off-putting to some, for us it added to the fun experience. It was a great evening!

We have been here twice and both times it was an amazing experience. Our server this time, Alyssa, was so friendly and helpful with the menu. She had a very in depth knowledge of all the items and helped us navigate between the shareables and the big entrees. I highly recommend both the Dragon and the Dynamite rolls, both are heavenly. The Green Geisha drink was a surprising mix of refreshing, delicious and crisp with it's hint of basil. All of the desserts that we tried were flawless. The ambiance was a mix of modern and comfortable and was very open while still feeling cozy. Absolutely one of the best dining experiences we've ever had.

Loved everything, the servers were so very nice to put two tables together! It was very frustrating they would not allow a reservation for 7 to begin with. But food was great, ambiance great and servers great. Just wish they would let us book for more people outside

The Sunday brunch is one of the best around. $40 for unlimited champagne is an incredible deal, and they use a good quality champagne. The food was great but the service was excellent. Julie waited on us and she by far is one of the best there. she was always smiling, she was extremely friendly and she made it a fun day . I suggest you ask for her if you go to the brunch. Looking forward to going back in a couple weeks

We loved our dinner at S3. I would recommend making a reservation. We had the Wok Charred Edamame for an appetizer; it was delicious! We had the Thai Tuna and Dynamite Roll for our entrée; both were delicious! I would highly recommend this place.
