My family and I attended a birthday celebration here and we thought it was an amazing setting with an exuberant staff and a wonderful menu. We were able to bring in our birthday cake and presents and the staff decorated for us. We had several servers who attended our party and any special instructions were at here too. We thoroughly enjoyed the open-air climate and thought that the food was delicious and well priced. We've been here a couple of times and we will continue to celebrate special occasions here.

Took over an hour to receive our drinks and appetizers. Another hour to receive our entres, then told two of the burger we ordered over 45 mins ago ran out.

My friends and I were very disappointed and still left hungry.

The drinks were good.

Average - food was good but not great. Service was very slow and scattered. Since it is in a hotel, it is a bit pricey for what it is.

This is a great spot for anyone in the area looking to soak in the beautiful Huntington Beach sights. It’s on the second floor of the hotel along 5th street so it’s convenient yet tucked away. The atmosphere is clean and cozy with reasonable prices on delicious food. Service was pleasant and attentive and our food arrived super quick! I’d definitely recommend Pacific Hideaway for a date night out or get together with friends!

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.

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! The food was amazing, and the view from the patio was breathtaking; it overlooks some of the shops as well as the beach. I would definitely recommend this place if you're in the Huntington Beach area. Try the loaded waffle fries if you can!
