Had breakfast following a stay at Shade. Legitimately one of the best breakfasts I've had in quite some time. French toast and breakfast potatoes were amazing. Don't sleep on this spot!

During this time, it felt very safe to eat there. They checked our temperature and we sat out on their outdoor patio. It was a lovely way to get out and enjoy a Sunday brunch. Great food and great service!!

Zinc was excellent! They sanitized the tables well, provide digital menu if we wanted and provide great service outdoors. Another great value of this restaurant is that they are Ocean Friendly, practicing sustainable business. So yummy.

The place is modern and has a variety of seating arrangements, from a small garden-like table outside on the sidewalk, to couch like seats also outside, and also outside tall chairs (comfortable) and table. Seating inside or the indoor patio as well. Great food, fast food service, the bar service (cocktails) was a bit slow, but just because the amount of orders was overwhelming. Wonderful Friday evening dinner experience after a walk along the strand.

Ambiance isn’t much. Got very loud and bar and dining all in one room. Food was really good & Service was amazing though. One disturbing thing is they let these regular customers bring their dog and it licks everybody coming by and the table. Completely disgusting and shouldn’t be allowed. Huge health code violation

Did a weekday brunch meet-up here and sat outside on the "porch" enjoying a clear, cool day. Food was solid, without any particular foodie "wow" characteristics. We enjoyed what we had...especially sharing strawberry ricotta and honey toast. Service was attentive, but we had a couple glitches. For example, the wrong food to the wrong table, so we started eating someone else's food, then noticed it wasn't what we'd ordered. (Whoops!) But that got straightened out, and the rest was fine. The coffee cup was bottomless and frequently refreshed. And there was no pressure to turn the table, so we could enjoy a long leisurely conversation.

Surprised and delighted. I’m not sure why we hadn’t gone here before. The food was really good and we had a lovely time. Sitting on the patio was not only relaxing but good for the kids. My cousin daid it was like a little vacation.

I arrived with my guests to find that the Zinc Lounge was closed and that they could not accommodate us. They said that there was a problem with the kitchen and could not offer service. They could not provide me with an answer as to why they did not call me in advance so that I could make other arrangements. In that we hold regular 'Birthday Lunches' for a group of friends, they know us and could easily have contacted me to make other arrangements. Fortunately, the restaurant across from the Zinc could accommodate our party on short notice.

We gave Zinc a second chance, and so glad we did! We had an exceptional waiter, Victor. Our appetizer, the fried calamari, was so tasty and our main courses were very good. We were given a beautiful dessert to celebrate our Anniversary. During our meal we had a chance to meet the manager,Shelly, who was very warm and gracious. So glad we took the opportunity to try this restaurant again.

We had the spicy tuna and calamari to open and both were very well prepared. The calamari cannot be improved - perfectly coated and quick-fried. We then shared a garden salad amongst 3 of us - nice dressing and chunks of mild salami. The mushroom truffle flatbread was not inspiring. A busy night (the Pier Holiday Lighting), so perhaps the kitchen ran out of truffle sauce or it was forgotten.

One thing to consider for your visit is the parking. Tough in the area and the valet parking that evening had a $40 event fee, no exceptions.

We came for our Anniversary Dinner. The service was slow, my food cold, we were told they would turn on the outside heating and did not until the end of our meal, and lastly we were over charged on our bill. Sadly we had high hopes and were disappointed. Would not recommend this restaurant.

I am so happy that it was a very smooth, efficient process to book a table for 15 people for brunch. We all had a great time and enjoyed the food, the variety of options to choose from and the ambiance. Service was great! Parking was easy - just valet for free for 3 hours or easy to find public parking.

We were conducting a business breakfast meeting and made the reservations. We will not be coming back. It was absolutely embarrassing. Had to get up myself and get coffee to serve us throughout the meal. Had to repeatedly request juices be delivered. Food order of client was wrong and all of ours was slow coming and cold. Put together get your own coffee, wrong food, cold food, server who wasn’t listening and inattentive and waited in an uncrowded restaurant 45 minutes for eggs and bacon skip it!!

We made a reservation for Saturday evening at 7 :30 pm. When we sat at the table we were given a very small menu and told that because of an event they had at the hotel/restaurant earlier they’re basically out of everything and offering a very limited menu. That was very disappointing and I think somehow the guests who made reservations should have been notified ahead of time. We had to scramble to find another restaurant that had availability which is not easy on a Saturday night.

I made my reservations multiple weeks in advance. When we arrived it turned out they had some event there and as a result the music was loud and their menu was modified to only have a few items!! Hence if we didn’t want one of the few options we were out of luck! Hence we left without eating! It was a total bust! I was disappointed since I drove in from Seal Beach. They had my phone number they could have called and warned me! Poor management!

Location is great, one block away from the beach and MB pier. Outdoor seating is comfortable, they have outdoor fireplaces at each outdoor table as well. Weekend mimosa special is $24 for bottomless. The avocado toast is my absolute favorite, delicious and not too heavy. The brioche French toast is also amazing.
