Chose this restaurant as we are guests in the hotel. Our server, Rob was fantastic, made us feel welcome, was attentive and gave good menu suggestions. The food was yummy and the wine was fabulous. Thanks for a great meal, we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Hotel restaurant; it was very quiet, probably because of a couple of weddings going on at the same time.

Service was very attentive and the food exceeded expectations. My steak was delicious, as were the accompaniments. My mother had a salad which was enormous.

Prices were reasonable.

The salmon and brussel sprouts were delicious but the service was not perfect. A dessert was not brought out after ordering until we asked about it.

I reserved a table for 10 people on a Saturday night at 7 pm for a family reunion. Most of us were staying in Hyatt as well. Some were relatives that live in Newport Coast. For convenience, I booked SHOR in the Hyatt where we were staying. The service was quick and wonderful. The 2 children had plenty of choices on the kid's menu. The 8 adults each chose their own entre. We ordered red and white bottled wine from the wine list. The table for 10 was set near the fireplace. There was another large party also set behind us. There was no disturbing noise level. There were a few couples also eating throughout. The ambiance was candle lit and relaxing. The orders ranged from mussels, mahi-mahi, pasta, short ribs of meat to salads. Everyone was happy with their order. The next day we also ate here for the breakfast buffet. The breakfast buffet was outstanding. Cappuccinos, eggs, pancakes, bagels, lox, bacon, fresh fruit. The waitress was friendly and fast service. I would definitely stay here and eat here again!

Nice place, good cuisine, fair service, a little pricey for what it is.
Only negative was the fact that the request for bread or rolls with the entrees was "warm bread for $4'.
iT WAS DELICIOUS, BUT SEEMED WEIRD FOR A QUALITY RESTAURANT TO NOT INCLUDE.

I feel bad saying that this restaurant was not good...
My in-laws were staying in the Hyatt, so we decided to go here for dinner. The food was ok, but the prices were very high for what we received. Over salted fish, and over-cooked meat. The sides however were pretty good.
I ordered a tortilla soup, but it was actually tomato soup with tortilla strips on top. Simple issues like this make me give a 3 star review. Wine pours were also quite small :)
Our waiter was very good. Made recommendations, and was very attentive.
Restaurant was empty and very bright for dinner.
Good luck SHOR :)

We go for special occasions, although it is overpriced for the level of food. We have been going for years, and it seems like the food choices and quality go down every year. The service and ambiance are always great however, and it is convenient in terms of location for us.

We attended Boney James concert last Sunday and had the Sunday seafood Brunch. It was the best- very best brunch I’ve ever had. The crab and shrimp and the mash potatoes and Farro salad were “Superb”!!!!
Two weeks prior we had the Friday evening dinner prior to the rained out concert of Boney James which was also suberb!

Average in almost every way. For an in-house restaurant, it's not bad. There is an outdoor terrace, but it faces the driveway/parking lot - so not much of a view. This Hyatt Regency is labeled 'Newport Beach', but it's really the back bay - again - no real view of water or beach.

The menu has a few interesting items, including a tasty ceviche. But the restaurant was quite crowded due to pre-show diners coming for an evening of jazz on the lawn at the hotel. For guests staying at the property this is a bit inconvenient. Once all those diners finished, things quieted down.

Service was good, if slightly slow. Drinks from the bar took a long time, and were odd tasting. Changed from cocktails to wine. Mediocre wine choices.

I would not recommend this restaurant simply because there are so many better options in the area. If you are a guest at the hotel, it is convenient and not bad.

The Lobster roll had only 2 small lobster pieces. It was very poor. The fried calamary were good but very few.
The ahi tuna and the mussels were very good.
We went for a birthday and not even a gesture.

It was our wedding anniversary. They gave us a very nice dessert. The service was ho-hum. The waiter was pretty rude. He did not check on us during the course of the meal. Service and food were subpar, I would expect the same level of food & service at Applebee’s.

Extremely disappointed. We've been going here for Easter brunch for years and this year was stunningly bad. Half the food choices (no eggs benedict?!) were missing. The dessert table was laughably limited. Wait staff was very uneven. One young man tried hard; everyone else ignored us. And to top it off, when the bill came we were shocked by how much MORE expensive it was than last year, considering how little was offered. We won't be returning.

I felt like we were in a 3 1/2 star hotel restaurant, not a Hyatt Recency in Newport. It was too brite, casual and loud, even though it wasn't very crowded. Servers were nice and courteous, but construction jeans need to be replaced with more professional attire. The cheese platter is recommended especially if you pair with nice red wine. That was my best part of the meal. The entrees were mediocre. Creme
brulee was made just right, and that was my date's favorite parr of the meal.

Wow this restaurant is quite a find. We would never have gone to it (since it is in a hotel) if it wasn't part of Newport Beach Restaurant Week. The food was some of the best we have sampled at any restaurant in the area. The portions were so large we took home leftovers and had them for dinner the next day. The drinks menu was low priced, and offered plenty of selections. We now have a new favorite restaurant!

LOVE Shor!! The food is fantastic whether it is breakfast lunch or dinner!! We always spend New Years Eve at Shor for a much needed relaxing atmosphere after the Christmas madness. The wait staff is wonderful!! Never a bad attitude and always accommodating. Our New Years Eve dinner was off the chart! Perfect Filet, mashed potatoes and gravy does not get any better!! Ended the evening with Crème Brule, served as I had never seen. Thank you Shor for starting 2018 off to a perfect start.
