A great find at the end of a spectacular day! A relaxed, spontaneous day laced with a leisurely stroll through Laguna Beach, excitement in Iron Man 3, a gorgeous sunset and delicious mushroom soup at Zinc at Shade! The strawberry salad and French fries had just the right savory and sweetness!

Excellent experience for my
Excellent experience for my impromptu team event. Zinc easily accommodate my growing party, a reservation for 8 inched up to 12 and they just rolled with it. Everyone enjoyed their food choices. The chef's interpretation of caprese salad with hulled heirloom tomatoes was incredible. The hostess and server were awesome, especially given a large group - 5 stars.

Gold Standard for Outdoor Lunch
Dined on outdoor patio area on a gorgeous day! Overlooks a shared courtyard in a small upscale center. Trendy ambiance. Had Kobe mushroom burger--meat cooked to order with delicious portobello slices and other toppings. Side of sweet potato fries also perfectly cooked. Husband ordered off Dine L.A. menu - house salad with arugula, corn, dried berries was delicious...didn't need the smoked salmon...couldn't taste it anyway. Had steak sandwich, impressed with tender meat, bread, and the housemade chips that were gently crispy, not oily. Service first-rate. Portion sized not huge, but good for the price--about $14-16 for lunch entrees with sides. (BTW...they should sell the pepper/salt grinders!) Will return for dinner soon.

Love the vegan enchiladas!
It is SO hard to find awesome vegan food in the South Bay so when I saw that Zinc had a vegan offering on their DineLA menu I was thrilled! Ever since Mucho closed I have been dying for good vegan enchiladas and Zinc's totally hit the spot. The drinks were great and really creative and the service was excellent, very accommodating. I can't wait to go back!

Great MB hotel restaurant
For a restaurant in a small hotel, Zinc is actually pretty good. It exceeded our expectations. The hostess was nice and the wait staff were attentive. We tried their tapas style menu, the calamari was excellent, beet salad was delicious and the sliders were amazing. We also has their 3 desserts and we liked the beignets the most. Will definitely go back again.

Has it all
It is a great bar and has a nice "tapas style" menu. Plenty to eat but instead of a full meal it is better to have a drink and share. Had pest shrimp pizza, mushroom grilled cheese and Calamari. Calamari was to die for.

This a great place too meet up for lunch. Normally there is a wait so make a reservation. Try the lavender champagne!

I found this place on yelp and decided to give it a try for my aunt's birthday. I mentioned my plans while at another establishment and a woman told me it was a terrific place. As soon as we arrived i was pleased with the decor and ambiance. The food was mouthwatering. I especially love that my aunt received a birthday treat which made her especially happy. Friendly staff and great foodI will most certainly be visiting again.

I went to zince@Shade with my girlfriends for dinner. The food and drinks were both awesome, we ordered from the small plates menu and had the calamari as an appetizer. I ordered the "Lobsta" tacos which were delicious and the Mexican corn on the cob, which I shared with the entire party... yummy.

Zinc Restaurant at Shade Hotel
Great food--dark golden eggs means healthy chickens that lived in sunshine; good smokey bacon. My husband had Tuscan grilled cheese with tomatoes and basil that he said was delicious. I would definitely go again next time we're in the area.
