SHOR American Seafood Grill - Hyatt Regency Newport Beach Ratings and Reviews
Food came 90 minutes after ordering. There were only 5 other occupied tables with parties of 2-3. It was a Saturday night so the kitchen should’ve been better staffed. The other diners looked just as miserable, as we all had a crazy long wait for our food. The server said they were having problems at the kitchen. They need to let us know on the get go that food service would be a problem then we could’ve gone elsewhere rather than leaving quite upset.
At a minimum the food should’ve been good, but even that was a fail! $130 for dinner for 3. Rubbery rib eye steak ($45), rancid ceviche
And chips, and an ahi bowl that was mostly rice. Dessert primarily pumpkin based. Not much options if you’re allergic to pumpkin. In n Out burger would’ve been preferable to what we had. Even for free, I will not come back.
Food was just OK. Nothing special. Wasn't bad nor great. This is not to say i wouldn't go here again. The ambience is ok and we were here for a concert. I would say if you're coming to see a concert at the Hyatt then it might be worth it due to convenience, but I wouldn't consider this place a destination in itself.
Thought we needed the rezzy - nope! Just a handful of folks for dinner on a Saturday night. Overall, disappointed with the food. Hyatt usually has really good restaurants; not so much here.
Caesar salad was somewhat flat in flavor. Steak was overcooked and rather tough. Not sure why they give you a small tub of chimichurri - it's tasty enough but totally overpowers the steak. We ordered fries instead of the mashed and asked for extra crispy. Nope - got whatever the cook wanted to make. The best part of the dinner was the yummy sourdough boule and the fennel butter that came with it.
Good thing they don't charge over-the-top prices!
I met with clients at the restaurant and the outdoor tables made the meeting enjoyable and comfortable. The service is unmatched - I will definitely set up more business meetings her in the future. The food is really fresh, perfectly cooked and served beautifully.
A truly disappointing experience all around. The service was horrible, the food was average and the value was low. We literally could have walked out after we finished eating because it was so long since we had seen our waiter that we thought they had forgotten about us. Maybe we were invisible for a period of time because other waiters and support staff walked by and did not seem to see us or hear our request as to where our waiter was. A SHOR minute is equal to 20 minutes in real time because the answer was always, "just one more minute". Many, many better options on the strip.
absolutely terrible seafood in this buffett, from the dry/powdery tiny crab legs, to the mushy room temperature oysters, to the rubbery shrimp. Prime rib was very good. not sure it was worth the $72 price tag. service was spotty. had to trip the waiter to get him to stop by and serve us more champagne and tend to our needs.
sat outside on the patio with our dog next to the heaters. had the most delicious, juicy cut of prime rib as part of their Christmas dinner buffet. lots of stations: shrimp/crab/oysters; cheese/salami/prosciutto; salad bar; prime rib/turkey/ham [wonderful au jus]); candied yams/green bean casserole/smooth, buttery mashed potatoes -- even an omelette bar. plus dessert (DIY chocolate sundaes & pumpkin pie). they kept everything well-stocked. it was just the best ever. definitely coming back next year!
We booked this restaurant for Christmas dinner. Typically if there is something different happening on a holiday it is stated on the Opentable app, i.e. pre fixe meal, etc. This was not the case. When we arrived it was a buffet style meal. We weren't too upset since all the food looked, and was good. However, the normal menu, which was all we had seen, varied in plate price from $25-$50. We were quite surprised when we received our bill at $72 per plate for a buffet. Also, Open table says valet parking is complimentary. It is not. The food was good, but the overall experience was not.
Food was great. At first, it looked like I had small portions but after eating it, it was filling and I didn't even finish my food. I ate the leftovers the day after and it was still delicious. I had the Lamb Pappardelle (braised lamb, confit onions, house goat ricotta, sherry sauce) as suggested by the server. It was a great suggestion. Valet was free for 3 hours.
I booked a reservation at Shor because we were staying at the hotel. We were a group of 6 people and 1 dog. We were able to sit outside on the patio and the dog was allowed to be with us. They hotel has done a nice job of making the patio comfortable but, it is worth knowing that the patio is on the front of the hotel near the drive. Very comfortable but not a scenic dining experience if that is what you are looking for. The staff was very helpful in describing the menu and all were knowledgeable about the items. I have rated this restaurant good for groups because the were so flexible and not extremely crowded. The food was good but the service made everything perfect.
Managed to arrive on a night with a limited menu and it was the full on-line menu which drove us to be there. We opted for a $58 buffet instead. The salad bar portion was among the best. The balance was hugely disappointing. For example, the "beef medallions" were chunks of extremely overcooked beef and dry as the Arizona desert. Impossible to cut, let alone eat. The Yellow tail was tasteless. The deserts came out of a Walmart frozen food case, or at least that is where I would expect to find them. Great service and nice ambiance ruined by a poorly executing kitchen staff. Such a waste. We will not return, though we are in Newport every month. I should mention we do not do buffets and regret varying from our rule-of-thumb regarding them.
Perfect place to dine prior to attending the open air jazz venue. The food was good but since the restaurant was pushing their pre-concert buffet the al a carte menu was very limited. I chose the restaurant based on the online menu so I was disappointed.
Verify the menu before you book. Service was good.
Since it was our first night in town we opted to eat on the hotel property. The resort is really beautiful so staying here was a good find. It was quite pricey for the meal with very few options as a vegetarian. I had lobster bisque and a salad. Hubby had the lamb pasta dish which was good. Server was attentive and kind.
Limited menu selection, only one type of steak. The NY Strip steak was smoked which overpowered the steak. For the price and promotions of the restaurant, we expected more. The ambiance was the typical breakfast café of a chain hotel, not a high end contemporary restaurant.
Service was very good.
My husband, daughter (12), and I were staying one night in Newport Beach at the Hyatt, so we decided to eat at SHOR since it was right at the hotel. We had a 7:00 p.m. Saturday evening reservation. We were seated immediately outside and had the choice to sit my the heaters or not. The restaurant was nearly empty. Our waiters were attentive and were available enough for our needs. We had the calamari appetizer (Tinker Bell breading, as my husband put it), mushroom brie soup (delicious), and ahi rice bowl (too spicy for my daughter, but the ahi was a good portion). My daughter had the mushroom tagliatelle (child's half portion which was huge) and I had the Caesar salad with grilled shrimp (delicious). Only got 3 shrimp. I would have paid more for four or five they were so good. My husband had the mixed green salad with apples and pecans which was fine. For dessert we got the My Pumpkin Pie in a jar to go. It tasted great but had the texture of soft cheese cake or pumpkin pie filling. All in all good food at a good value.
I would not normally think of a hotel restaurant as the location for a creative and delicious chef's choice, four course menu, however the Hyatt's Shor exceeded my expectations. The food creations were delicious and the portions were just right. The short rib 'brick' with roasted radish was done very well and the dessert featured numerous unique creations and flavors. The restaurant ambiance is typical 'hotel restaurant', so don't go there looking for ocean views or exotic decor. However, for food and value, it scored very highly with us.
one other table and it took forever to get waited on; the only complaint. Our waiter was a charming man from Liverpool. He gave us a taste of the mushroom brie soup, delicious. The entres were unique and flavorful. I had salmon over cauliflower puree with pea tendrils and olive cracker. I was celebrating my birthday; and he served us a complimentary dessert of butter cake with cream cheese and caramel sauce. Great meal.
You were greeted warmly by Barbara, who was incredible. What an amazing first impression. Second, you are served with world class service by Julio and since I have dined here recently I was name recognized and the service was so professional, efficient, friendly and incredible. Julio is very knowledge about the food items and offered his suggestions and ideas, which I really appreciated. The menu has some great choices and my smoked salmon and my friends burrito were excellent. A total pleasure dining here, ask for Julio and receive a warm greeting from Barbara.
