The food option and presentation and taste was just mediocre. Not worth going out for that. the ambience under the present circumstance was ok, I wish the food menu was a step above a bar food selection...

Food was quite bad. Pizza seemed like it was cooked in a microwave. Service was great though.

I made an appointment for outdoor seating and got a lot of "lip" in a condescending british accent when questioned - "this is first come first serve" .. why then offer outdoor seating and why the "lip". Be nice ..does not cost you anything

The short rib sandwich was a horrible piece of meat. Almost inedible. Couldn't even cut it. Sweet pot, fries were excellent. Sesame salad was past it's prime-lot's of withered lettuce. Not fresh.
I have eaten at the other Shade in RB and thought the food was much better there.

We had a reservation at 1 p and we got there 3 minutes to 1p but 1) we had to stand and wait for a receptionist's attention, even no lines 2) after he marked our names and he let us wait OUTSIDE THE FRONT DOOR 3) at 1:05p we were not called so went inside but the guy disappeared without telling anybody and no-one knew we were waiting OUTSIDE THE FRONT DOOR.( I wish I took his name )
even coronavirus time but not simply ignored a customer with reservation!!!!!
A good thing is that our waitress was very friendly. Their salad was good.

This was our first visit to a dine-in restaurant since the shutdown started. Staff and management made it a comfortable, worry-free experience - the atmosphere was relaxed, the brunch very tasty, and the service friendly. Great job.

We were seated in the atrium area, within the hotel (still open air, but not on the front of the hotel). It was nice not to have people constantly walking within a few feet of our table with our food exposed, even if Manhattan Beach city requires masks these days - people don't always comply...

They have put up "shade sails" that made the heat reasonable and brought us fresh, cold water immediately. The wait staff was thoughtful and timely in their service. The food was wonderful! (try the fish tacos and calamari - we loved them both!)

They have made all the right adjustments to make this COVID situation both enjoyable and safe. Thank you, Shade! Always glad you're in the MB area!

Their pictures of the food menu are false advertisement. They didn’t have what we went there for. The pizza we ordered tasted like frozen pizza out of a box. Waiter didn’t seem to care. When we informed him of our disappointment he said “ahh that’s good” what’s good about that!?

Local Manhattan Beach residents who have been frequenting metlox restaurants for 15+ years. Food presentation was nice, outdoor ambience was pleasant, and the cocktails tasted great. But that was it. Service was terrible, never came back to ask if we wanted a second drink/cocktail, and never refilled the water glasses. There was a lot of fat on the short ribs. The chairs weren’t comfortable at all- they’re hard metal, and the server left us sitting on them for so long waiting for the check it was ridiculous. He must like to walk a lot because he passed by the table multiple times while the card was on the check ready to be picked up but he just kept walking by. Plenty of other great food places in MB- I most definitely won’t be back, and I’m not mad about it either lol

They had enough seating in the inner courtyard. And I like the fact that they take the temperature prior to serving you.

Mary, maybe the restaurant manager was truly outstanding...... thus the high review. I felt that the covid issues were properly addressed, and we had a nice lunch.
The server was not a high rating...... but Mary more that made up for her inadequate
service!

The service, cleanliness and safety was excellent. They did not have the only Sauvignon Blanc on the menu and the branzino was way overcooked and dry and the fish tacos were not great. Overall it was a nice experience to eat out, but for the price the food was just ok.

The patio was nice for a date! Only thing is that the tables are small so don’t buy too much food at one time lol. Otherwise, very nice restaurant. Which the dining inside was open again! ☹️

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.
