The experience at zinc with my friends and wife was amazing. Hailey our waitress was very knowledgeable about advising us on flavors of the red and white wines, appetizers Truffle Fingerlings, Spicy Tina in Crispy Rice, and entrees Blackened fish tacos, Angus Ribeye steak, Santa Fe bowl, and Seared Saffron Salmon..... all delicious!

The service was amazing whether it be the drink server, waitress or the manager. And I recommend sitting outside it’s a fabulous view very modern and open.

The 2:30 seating for the Mother’s Day brunch was met with hot trays with dried out egg dishes - never mind the total for 7 people with tip was close to $1,000

The service was good - he brought whole bottles of decent champagne to our table

The place was fun but the food was a unmitigated disaster

This doesn’t include food made at station

Bad experience for Mother’s Day. Restaurant called to confirm reservation but didn’t bother to tell us brunch would be “specially priced” because it’s Mother’s Day. Ok, my wife and family are worth $85 per person for a nice (but nothing really above and beyond) breakfast buffet. But when they ask me “would you like coffee?” am I really expected to ask “is that included in the $85?” I mean, who doesn’t include coffee in the price of an $85 buffet?!?! If I’m expected to ask if coffee is included what comes next? A surprise charge for ordering from the omelette bar?!Decent enough meal but the whole experience really just left a bad taste in the mouth.

Place, food and ambiance are great. The service was a bit slow. We were a party of 9 so had a lot of order, but two coffees were cold and the bottomless Mimosas did not have any fizz left in them. Other than that our Starters and Entrees were delicious and warm.

I had a positive experience with zinc@shade this past Sunday for a small bridal shower. Customer service was excellent -- I'd like to acknowledge Shelly who went above and beyond assisting us with seating and Eric who attended to our food and beverage needs throughout the entire time we were there. I highly recommend the ambiance at zinc@shade for a special event.

Unfortunately,, it was a bit too cold to enjoy sitting outside when we dined. Our food was very good as were the drinks. However, our primary server was not attentive to the point that we ultimately had to request a manager to pay our bill.

We went when it was pouring out so there wasn't really much of a crowd. I tend to like it better when it's busier, full of life. Our food was great and our waiter, Victor M., was awesome. Super attentive and helpful with picking out a wine and food.

Service was awful. I expected more from The Shade Hotel. We had reservations when the restaurant first opened so the lack of service really is no excuse. We never knew who our server was because FIVE different people came to our table. We could barely get coffee
refilled among other things. However when we asked for the check, that came right away and they processed it very quickly.

Really disappointing.

California casual at its best. The restaurant and bad sit in the lobby of the hotel, which might get noisy when crowded. The crowd was mixed with hotel guests and locals. The fried calamari appetizer with balsamic vinegar reduction is outstanding, along with the seafood paella and lobster man & cheese. I would highly recommend Zinc.

We had a dinner reservation Friday night around 6:45 and I look forward to trying it again a little later so we are there for the music and scene. We ate truffle sliders, baked avacado and tuna crispy rice. All were delicious! I had a drink with muddled raspberries and blackberries that was also really good. Kind of a weird location in what seems to be a really nice strip center with trees, tables, lights and a fire pit in the courtyard. You can walk to the beach and they valet for free for 3 hours. I look forward to going back.

40 minute wait for food, each plate of which came out individually, (and this was a party of 5) in 3 minute intervals. Eggs were also all over cooked. Won’t mention the hopelessly wobbly table on the patio, and the flies everywhere (on the right side of the patio only, apparently, due to the lack of ceiling fans on that side.)

It's a great place for birthdays celebrations. The food was great and so is the service. Definitely, will recommend the place. However, the tuna sandwich is pretty dry so just keep that in mind when you order it.
