A word from zinc @ shade
A true fusion of coastal living with LA nightlife. We turn the lights down low, mix a sultry Martini, pour a glass of Napa Cab, prepare a spread of small plates. Cool, hip, comfortable, inviting, you'll relax in our neo-modular furniture designed by Christopher Lowell. Zinc has perhaps the longest bar in South Bay. In the lounge or on the terrace, you can enjoy our menu of unusual small plates, both sweet and savory. Through a unique European wine preservation system, we offer a large selection of fine wines by the glass. The food, the drink, the environment, the service. Zinc is an indulgence -- a sensory experience. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Zinc has wonderful ambiance! It is beautiful! The service was excellent and we had a very large party. The food and drinks were great too!"

  • "Zinc, the patio restaurant at the Shade Hotel is a great spot for Weekend Breakfast or Brunch. Nice intimate patio is not usually too busy and they take reservations."

  • "The food is really good and the cocktails are good too. The restaurant is some weird cross between a disco without a dance floor and a bar though, so it's incredibly loud (music). If you sit on the patio it's closer to a normal restaurant. We've been twice in the past week because the food (especially the small plates tapa styles and all the different grilled cheese sandwich choices) really is excellent. It's probably the only venue in Manhattan Beach with great food and still be nearly empty on a Friday night."

  • "Went there for breakfast. Beautiful day so we say outside. Food was excellent. Try the ginger mimosa; it was awesome. Service was okay. Not bad, just not great. Park around the corner or you'll be paying for valet."

  • "I came for DineLA lunch and I had looked at the wrong lunch special menu online so I was confused when I got there. I saw that their lunch special was a soup/salad, entree, side, and beverage including either wine or beer for $15. The DineLA menu was also $15 but was for a specialty appetizer and entree only, seemed like the regular special was a better deal. Food turned out to be very good but they messed up the bill. They explained it looked right on the computer but printed out wrong. They had to fix it twice but apologized. In the end the tax was still based on the wrong amount but was only a couple of bucks. The beers were charging $12 instead of $6. I would go back for their regular lunch special and keep an eye out on the bill."

  • "Went here for DineLA and was pleasantly surprised! It's in a hotel, but it's still very cool and boutique-y. Their portion sizes are perfect and the menu is creative and delicious. Get the artichoke app and try one of their homemade desserts!"

  • "The carne asada and the fish tacos were terrific. My dining companion said the fish tacos were the best he had eaten anywhere, and he orders them everywhere they are offered. Service was a bit slow at first. Think the wait staff was not sufficient for the number of customers. One man was trying to run the bar, seat customers, and take orders. We were not in a hurry, but if we had been on a lunch hour break, we would have found ourselves stretched. About halfway through our lunch, more servers appeared and the service evened out."

  • "Very nice place for a mid-day snack and a nice alcoholic drink, or lunch. Has a great selection of items to choose from the light side to great sandwiches or salads. A great place to stop if you are taking a walk on a Sunday afternoon."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

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

  • "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."
    Dined on 10/29/2013
  • "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."

  • "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."
