Our service was exceptional. One dish was slightly undercooked, and our server took it of the bill without us having to ask. Small, excellent menu...wonderful place. We plan to return in a few weeks with friends from out of town.

I was looking for something new that my wife and I hadnt been to. We decided on something around Huntington Beach. My wife and I havent been back in HB for over 4 years, we've been hearing about how much it has changed. I noticed Pacific Hideaway and I didnt know it was located in the Shorebreak hotel. We gave this place a try and overall our expectations were blown away from the ambiance to the food. We had the pleasure of meeting our server Lauren P, she was knowledgeable of menu and recommended the best. We were impressed by the cocktails and food especially the Dazed & Confused and the Korean Tacos. We will surely comeback especially for the brunch. Thank you Pacific Hideaway for you wonderful hospitality.

 (Las Vegas)·Dined on December 25, 2017

In looking for a nice spot for Christmas dinner, we chose to give Pacific Hideaway a shot based on the advertisement of transforming the Restaurant into "A Christmas Story Theme". They tried but fell short, very short. False advertisement. No Christmas feeling at all here. No holiday decorations, annoying music playing, football on TV (btw when I called ahead to ask how they were incorporating this theme they said the movie A Christmas Story would be playing). Lastly, the "special" Chinese food menu had very small portions for family style and the fried rice was not fried rice at all. Steamed rice with soy sauce and shredded carrots with a strong vinegar taste. We made the best of it and enjoyed each other's company, but bad choice for a special nigjt in looking for a unique little Christmas dinner.

Went all the time when it was Zimzala. The new decor is very cute and the atmosphere is nice, however whatever they're attempting to do with the Asian cuisine is not working because it's really not good or authentic.

Really special menu of Asian Latin fusion. Really good food, and we sampled 10 thing.

Stuffed fries amazing, as was the beer can chicken and sausage lettuce wraps.

They were out of the whole fish we had heard about, but it was Sunday night.

This is the first bad review I've written in a very long time.

My wife and I tried Pacific Hideaway for our weekly Saturday night date.

The chorizo stuffed figs were great, as was my wife's hamburger. Unfortunately, I ordered the Pork Shank Adobo at $34. It was tasteless and overdone. No "Orange-soy braise, kaffir lime, or thai chili" to be seen or tasted.

We're not going back.

We often used to go to this place when it was Zimzula, but have not been there for over a year. Now, it is called Pacific Hideaway. It became a cozy restaurant with delicious food at a great location. Everyone found on the menu something to his preference. Laos Sausages and calamari were a must-try as appetizers. Our friends shared a pacific snapper(so fresh and juicy!), I had a seabass, and my husband had a beer-caned hen. I loved every single bite of my meal and my husband was bragging how good was his hen even the following day. I would definitely recommend this place!

Decided to try it since we live within walking distance and had been to the location when it was a previous restaurant (Zimzala). Well worth the visit. The staff are efficient and friendly. The crispy snapper dinner for 2 was amazing! Highly recommend it if you like fish. Also fantastic were the chorizo-stuffed dates and the calamari with a honey chipotle sauce. There are good wine and craft beer choices along with crafted cocktails and a pretty hefty tequila list. Something for everyone - You can't go wrong.
The prices are not inexpensive, but won't break the bank. A good place to take someone special on a date or a private birthday dinner.

We celebrated our engagement at Pacific Hideaway and I'm so glad we chose there. I let them know on the booking it was our engagement and it was so great to be congratulated by the staff and offered 2 glasses of complimentary champagne.

Small things like that make the evening that much better. The food by the way was amazing.

In my opinion... food was so so... everything was way too salty. Too rigid... refused to cool a hamburger to request or modify an order even though I offered to pay more. Beer was in really small glasses but charged full pint price (it was just old speckled hen... should have been served 16oz pour)... water refills were non existent. Not worth the price for sure. Again in my opinion this is another typical hotel restaurant that hopes they will not need to depend on repeat business from local customers.

It was OK but nothing special. The way food was described expected it to be spicy and it actually needed more spice.
Bartender didn't know how to fix a gimlet, surprisingly. When he figured it out it was pretty good however. Interesting people watching busy and noisy bar scene.
Liked the previous restaurant better.
The best part of all was the waitress. She was exceptional and made sure we were taken care of. Hats off to her.

I went here for the first time this weekend with my boyfriend and we had a lovely date!

I would definitely recommend this place if you're in the Huntington Beach area. Try the loaded waffle fries if you can!

The food is overpriced for the portions. The ahi poke was not fresh. I was still hungry after spending $14 for huevos rancheros. My friend's frittata should have included a starch for $12. Lastly, the three full wings didn't have much heat and were overpriced at $12.

Overall, an overpriced & mediocre experience

Amazing ambiance with a great ocean view. Great patio, service was impeccable! The food is amazing however portions are quite small for the price. The menu is on the small side, not enough options in my opinion. The cocktails are phenomenal, hand crafted with extra touches. A very unique place, worth it for the patio and view alone.

Might visit again but just for cocktails. It's a hotel restaurant and the night we went (a Saturday), it wasn't as good at hiding that as the website/social/Yelp/etc suggested. Service was great, food was good, but if you're looking for a special dinner in downtown HB, I'd recommend Bluegold instead.

Fun new restaurant. Cocktails are festive and very good. Food tends to be spicy. Fish tacos are always good. Ceviche is fresh and yummy. Served in a coconut bowl. We also enjoyed the calamari. I had the wahoo with coconut miso and would highly recommend. Lots of good fresh spring vegetables. Sit outside on a nice evening. Service needs some work but they are new. Hopefully that part ramps up.

Great overall experience. Good cocktails & appetizers. We had the ceviche and the laos sausage to start. Both were excellent. The ceviche is delicious & well prepared, served in a coconut with coconut milk. The laos sausage was our favorite: spicy sausage, crispy rice & a sauce in a lettuce wrap. I had the game hen entre and it was great.
