    We felt that though the food was good, it was over priced for what it was. Service was very good. We enjoyed the view and using the hotel pool balcony and bar afterwards.

    The view was excellent! The wind did not cooperate so we had to eat inside but with large windows we could still take in scenery. The food was just as good as the view. Everything we ate tasted great and was prepared perfectly. Priced than we normally eat but was in our range of special occasion. Well worth the price.

    my partner and i chose this restaurant hoping to have a lovely meal by the beach as it was our last night in Clearwater, had read good reviews so decided to make a reservation. upon arriving and checking in, we waited for nearly 10 minutes apparently for a table to be clear, the table we eventually we given was free and ready the whole time we had been waiting. waited nearly 15 minutes for drinks order to be taken, we just seemed to be waiting for the whole meal, food was very nice but the service was poor. maybe could have forgiven the waiting if it was busy, but it clearly wasn't busy and we just seemed to be forgotten the whole time, i would recommend the food but not the service, so overall wouldn't recommend :(

    The staff was spectacular. Very friendly, courteous and full of smiles. With that said, the ambience was significantly more casual than I gathered from pictures and the food, while beautifully plated, lacked the punch I'd expect from the prices on the menu. My filet mignon tasted more like a regular steak with an odd smoked flavor I wasn't expecting and nothing else had a great deal of flavor. Decent view from the balcony, not so much from inside where it's comfortable. Overall, not a bad experience at all but likely won't return.

    Looked forward to the Mother's Day Brunch for weeks. But sad to say the seafood had sat out for hours to the point that the Oysters had dried out so bad that their was no liquid left and they were dried to the shell. I had visited Shor 4 years and the food was great this time the menu had changed and was no better than bar food with a up scale name.

    Outdoor dining on the patio is the best. Sunset views are gorgeous. Traffic below can be a little obnoxious but mostly very pleasant. Do not recommend indoor dining..extremely loud due to tile/marble floors throughout. Our server was excellent, food was slightly above par. Menu a little limited. Rather pricey overall. Still would recommend if only for the view and beautiful patio.

    We went to Shor for Easter brunch. We were greeted and served right away. Every staff member we met was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. We had the option of eating inside or out and chose to eat on the patio. The view was spectacular, and the weather was gorgeous. As far as the buffet goes, there was a selection large enough to meet anyone's interest and the food was top notch. The food was fresh, hot and delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will visit again.

    We went for the Easter Buffet. There was an excellent variety of food and everything was beautiful. The food however, was barely warm on almost all items that should have been hot. Additionally some of the items lacked flavor/seasoning. Our server was very polite and personable. Overall we were dissapointed and most likely will not return.

    Service was very good. Calamari appetizer was delicious. I had cioppino, which was good& fresh, but would try something else if I went back. We had ahi tuna, which was a special that night. It was very good. I would recommend it again. It is a little more expensive than just your average night out, so maybe save it for a special occasion, but it is worth it.

    We ate out on the balcony at sunset which was nice, though the balcony sits above a road which can be noisy in the evening. Food was very good, with a wide choice of quality seafood. This place is not high end but therefore informal with food that will not disappoint.

    We have dined there 2 times this week. Our first visit was on a weekday and the food and service were very good. We went again on Saturday and our experience was vastly different. The food and service were both spotty at best. Our food was a bit underdone and the server was covering too many tables. I am reluctant to try it again for fear of having another disappointing meal. I also must admit that I found it a bit too loud on both occasions.

    When we arrived we were sat next to a family of four. One kid was screaming and the other was running around the table. I asked to be moved and was but the screaming kid could be heard throughout the restaurant. That family left about 30 mins later but I would warn anyone that is going out for a pleasant dinner that there were alot of families with young kids. If you are trying to get a night out without your kids, this is not the place for you. The food was excellent.

    SHOR's atmosphere is nice, the service was great, but the portions were too light/small for what you pay. We don't mind the drink prices, but expect to actually get more than 1/8 of the glass filled when drinking wine. Even the martini glasses were smaller than at other fine dining establishments. Because of the lack of food and wine in relation to the prices, we were disappointed and will not return.

    If the drinks are a bit weak the food is superb. The service was also first class. If I remember correctly the name Nathan gave a perfect breifing on the menu even repeating when we were not sure. Altogether a wonderfull experience in dining. I would recommend Shor anytime for a delicious experience at an affordable price for the quality of the food served. With a view on the kitchen we were able to see whath was being prepared and everything look delicious. Comming from Montréal we know a good restaurant when we experience one. Shor is one of them.

    Valentines Day reservations. Received promptly by the host staff and seated at out table. We requested, and got, a table with a view of the beach (stunning.) The dinning room is clean and open. But, the decorations are drab and boring. 5 course pre-fixed menu. Wait staff were outstanding: attentive, friendly and worked hard to meet our needs. Hyatt's determination to make service a priority is notable. Restaurant was packed but the noise level was never outrageous and did not impact the service. Food portion sizes, pacing and presentation was excellent. However, I do not share SHOR's love affair with salt. All the proteins were over seasoned. We will try this restaurant again and will recommend to others.
