To say the place has changed a lot since the days of Zimzala, well I guess. The atmosphere is active and interesting with a mix of old and new attendees. So, the service is pretty good with lots of employees to take your order, bring you drinks, clear your table after each course, etc. The cocktails weren't the greatest, gin and tonic that resembled a glass of ice water with a twist, but from there the food took over. Great poke bowl with just the right amount of heat and an order of muscles that could have fed two as a main course. Our entrees came out hot and aromatic and had ample amounts of sides heaped around the platter. Perfectly prepared they were some of the best meals we've had in downtown H.B.

We went for Sunday brunch and were not disappointed. I had the Eggs Benny hash and my friend had the Poke bowl, both were excellent, along with the mimosas! Zach, our waiter knew we were there to celebrate and took good care of us. Can't wait to go back to try their fun drink options and happy hour!

It was WAY too loud for Sunday brunch due to a bridal party that took over two massive tables. In my opinion, they should have had a private room because their fun was disruptive to the rest of the customers. We were definitely hoping for a more positive experience as we were also celebrating a special occasion.

Wow! I was so impressed by Pacific Hideaway. We brought my mom here for her 60th Birthday and from the service to the food, it was all simply amazing! I had the Benny Hash & it was so unique & beyond delicious. We also ordered the bread pudding toast & it was exceptional. Mimosas are $10 with a $1 refill option. We sat on the patio & the view did not disappoint. Highly recommend.

Let me preface that we went out nye so there was a prefixed menu and that's what two of us ordered. It was at best.... Eh.... I love all food and I'm not a picky but these dishes were either bland or too many competing flavors to be good. One person ordered the lettuce wraps and we all eat spicy food and that was not edible. The spice level was over the top. The one good thing sadly was the cheeseburger one person ordered.. I also added the wine pairing.. That was on a next level of awful...I actually couldn't believe they served those.. There's so much better wines that aren't expensive that would've worked, it tasted like you'd have to try hard to pick four super horrible wines. Great ambiance though.. Our waitress was sweet, but pretty sure she was stoned. We got our first few dishes back to back and then we didn't see her for quite sometime...she looked shocked we didn't get our dessert or final wines.. Or ability to order more drinks.. Just overall, this is a few minutes from home, but we'll never go back.

I did not like that they had an expensive New Year's Eve menu and were hesitant to share the regularly priced menu with us. They should be upfront about what there options are.

We had our Christmas dinner here. Everything was so yummy and we loved that we had both the option of the pre-fixed holiday menu and also the regular restaurant menu. The queso dip and fish and short rib tacos were all so tasty. We also got the double double hamburger and it was delicious. The cocktails were refreshing and I loved the variety of the cocktail menu. We ordered the eggnog cheesecake and it was amazing it was like the best flavors of Christmas on a plate-so good yummy 😋

Went for breakfast. Can recommend the Hideaway Hash Benny and Veggies in the AM. Crab Toast was okay; on the small side and not that flavorful. No espresso drinks were available; was told the machine was broken. Very good service and nice atmosphere.

I hadn't been here since it was Zimzala, I liked that place so decided to give this one a try. Unfortunately I am not a fan of the redo. First off the service was extremely slow, I had bacon, eggs, potatoes and toast. You would think for $15 I would get 2 slices of toast as which is usually customary, nope... 1 slice of bread only, and unbuttered at that. The eggs were terrible, I asked for over medium and what I got was a runny mess. I was tempted to bring it to the waiters attention but he was nowhere to be found. They were not very busy either so I don't understand the slow service. I like to try new places and now I've got this place out of the way, I won't be back.

I’m a huge fan of this hidden gem restaurant. It’s not your average hotel restaurant! They have really fresh and creative food and a very cool bar with killer cocktails and beer. You can’t beat the view from the patio of the pier and happy hour every day 👍🏻

Enjoyed having brunch here. Dog friendly. Victor our server was very nice. The food portion is not that big and a bit in the pricey side for the amount of food you get but all the same the atmosphere and location makes up for it. I personally would not come here if they were not dog friendly. Plus it is very convenient since we were staying in the hotel too...

The food was very mediocre, especially considering the price. I feel like there was hardly any seasoning and I tried 3 different dishes, all lacked flavor. The cocktails barely had any alcohol in it and were pricey. Overall I don’t think the quality of the food matched the price. Our server was very pushy and I felt obligated to order a drink because she asked me about 10 times if I wanted to order a drink so I finally did and didn’t even enjoy the drink. We also asked our server for recommendations on food and she listed everything on the menu as a recommendation so that wasn’t really much help. Definitely will not be back.

Our waitress was less than adequate. The hostess ran into the waiter on his way to deliver our meal and they had to remake our meal. They took a long time to get our food to us. They gave my wife the medium steak and me the medium well and that was the opposite of what we asked for. The good thing is that we had our second drinks comped.
The ambiance was nice and the food was good
