Fabulous food, service and ambiance. We go to Huntington Beach at least once a month to eat here. Love it that much.

I ordered a well done hamburger but it was slightly cooked on the outside and bleeding on the inside. Also, the waitress was slow and not too friendly. The restaurant was mostly empty but she only came to our table to take our order and deliver our food otherwise she couldn't be seen, so I waited a long time to... More

We stay at the Shorebreak Hotel with our furry friends so we always make a point to go to the patio at Zimzala and have happy hour. Their menu is excellent and has a lot to offer I love the sliders and the margaritas our pets are always welcome on the patio and are always treated very well.. The whole... More

Last time I was in this area, I enjoyed a great Bloody Mary here. The menu is a little daring, without being over the top. We had dinner here (my husband, me and our 7 year old son). There were lots of babies in the dining room and lots of young people in the bar. Definitely a happening place, but... More

A strange room needing an identity. The bar and dining room which is also the breakfast room to the hotel is definitely different. Although well appointed the bar with sofas and TV's were not conducive to a nice quiet dinner. The food was just ok. We had an olive flatbread that was tasty with our cocktails. It took forever for... More

My husband and I joke that this was our real Thanksgiving dinner, since it was over the holiday and absolutely delicious and gluttonous. It is hands down the best room service we've ever had. Soft house made pretzels with IPA beer cheese dipping sauce, blue cheese wedge with fried onions, "dirty filthy martinis," wild mushroom risotto with marscapone and truffle... More

Went here for our anniversary dinner. Sat on the patio which has excellent view of the HB pier and does have a heaters. Service was exceptional at first, but once our entrees arrived it was non-existent. Server didn't even offer dessert. Food was excellent. Have the appetizer pretzels, they were great. Only drawback...no valet validation since the city runs it!

If it weren't that it was my daughter Natasha's birthday and we chose this quiet restaurant to host our family lunch....and they didn't acknowledge it (!) I would have given a better rating ! The food was decent ... Nothing bad to say ! Not unusual or different , but solid and reliable.... But since there were only five tables... More
