Great brunch! The buttermilk pancakes were delicious. I loved that they did a mezcal birthday cocktail for my boyfriend’s birthday. The breakfast burrito and breakfast sandwich were both very fasting. The best part is they do bottomless mimosas for $18 everyday.

We did not realize it was going to be a loud music party vibe. Thought it was more fine dining. A large party arrived before our reservation and they used our much nicer table to pull together with theirs. We were seated at an inferior table. Reservation was made 30 days in advance and the had confirmed it with us...twice.

Sunday 2/16.
We arrived 15 mins. early ... My 12:15 reservation was not honored because “other parties showed up late”. We were seated 1 hr later. We ordered drinks and chips/guacamole because we were starving. (Not comped)
I eat gluten free and dairy free. Our waiter clearly made notes and ordered correctly. 45 mins later we were served. My meal came with whipped cream, so I sent it back.
We were at the restaurant for over 3 hours! Good thing we had lots to talk about!

Great location, ambiance is nice. It was really loud inside even with it open to the outside area (Sunday 11am). The food was overall average. The breakfast taco was great. The hash Benny was way too salty. It could be from the sausage it's made with, Lao?, which I've never had...and ended up being very greasy. I ate maybe half. I ended up eating a bunch of my friend's potatoes on her regular breakfast, which was good. Bottomless mimosas were reasonably priced but service was sometimes lacking (ie, multiple moments when absolutely no waitstaff were on the floor).

Maybe a different day/time/food choice it mightve rated higher with me. Hope this helps!

We went to Pacific Hideaway based on the excellent reviews on Open Table. I booked a table for 2 on Valentine's Day at 5:45 pm thinking it might not be too busy then. They offered a Prix Fixe Valentine's menu and also the regular menu. We ordered from the regular menu. I had Scallops and the hubby had the Striped Bass. Both were delicious and the service was excellent and well paced. Our dining neighbors had the Beef Wellington special which looked wonderful as well. My only complaint would be the atmosphere. The restaurant being right off the hotel lobby and the patio made for a noisy,chilly and drafty evening for us and our fellow diners.

Many of the menu items were described by our waitress as 'spicy.' Lots of Mexican style dishes....which sounded great....but, I can't do spicy! My husband and daughter both ordered the 1/2 chicken. Good size portion; but, my husbands was so overcooked it was inedible; our daughter enjoyed hers. Midway through dinner both my daughter and I developed a terrible stomach ache and felt nauseated! The only food we 'shared' that day was the Cauliflower on Tahini appetizer at the restaurant. Not sure if that was the cause, but, it's awfully suspicious! Anyways....in no hurry to return!

The location is great but overall mediocre time. The negativity stem from the dirty water glass I caught myself too late I was drinking out of. It was pretty disgusting. The manager was able to rectify the issue by comping the drinks and one of the appetizer but after seeing the water glass, everyone was wary of their utensils and dish ware. Also, the oysters had a LOT of shell shard inside the oyster itself. Every oyster had four to eight pieces of shell inside the meat which made it hard to enjoy. We like the decoration but the overall quality did not match unfortunately.

Thanks for sharing your review with us. While I'm glad to hear you loved our location, I am a bit baffled by your feedback as this is rare for us to hear. It’s clear we fell short of your expectations with the water glass and oysters, and did try our best to make it right while you were with dining us.

The staff was very gracious and helpful. I had the overnight oats, and was not impressed with the flavor. The oats themselves were not seasoned either with salt or sweetness (honey, agavé, etc). I would rethink this dish. However, the staff has a very welcoming attitude and the location is very pretty. I would recommend for these reasons.

The restaurant is located in a Kimpton hotel which is one of my favorite hotel chains and that hotel is only a block off from the beach near the Huntington Beach pier. I thought the quality of the food was quite good. We ordered some Thai coconut soup, oysters on the half shell, and some tacos as well as some chips and guacamole. I thought the food was tasty. The service was also very good. Although they made a mistake in giving our tacos do another couple, they made good on the mirror quite quickly and paid for our tacos without our asking or having that expectation.

Overall I thought the experience was quite good. They bordered on a five-star experience overall given everything into consideration, however, was not quite fully at that level. Make no mistake however, I would recommend this restaurant and we look forward to going back.

Went on Friday night. Tables dirty and some had place settings but many did not. Our server was friendly but slow and the place was not full. I ordered the crispy whole fish : it was a whole carcass with 7-8 deep fried fillets like a traditional fish & chips served on the carcass. At first I thought the “ bundles” were tempura and was shocked that there wasn’t fish meat left on the bone... it’s a whole fish- even the photo on the webpage hides the “ bundles”. I’m Asian- we eat whole fish often .. this was very disappointing. The crab cake appetizer was great and the cocktails over priced. The wait staff did try but not enough working on a busy holiday weekend but the poor representation of a cultural staple- a whole fish makes this place a huge “ never again” The Kimpton hotel , in which this restaurant is in, should really reconsider this eatery.
