Great 2nd story patio dining

Sitting on the second story patio for a meal while overlooking the hustle bustle of Main Street was a treat.

I just recently ordered their new(er) Spinach, organic Quinoa, Dates, Avocado, Mandarin tangerines, Cashews with lemon vinaigrette dressing...it was soooo good! I went back a few days later to have another one. The bar/restaurant has a cool inside ambience and they have an outside terrace with views of the ocean up the street. Relaxed casual setting directly across from the... More

My mom and I came here because we went to Huntington beach to kill some time and I knew that restaurants at Kimpton properties are always great. We were NOT disappointed. We split the pork belly eggs Benedict and a fruit bowl (full of raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries). It was a great decision! We sat outside on the patio and... More

The food was just ok, but the service was great and they have $1 mimosa refills. The view is really nice!

Six of us went to Zimzala to celebrate a birthday. The brunch menu seems to have been pared down. The server seemed stressed. It was a struggle to get water for the table as well as refills for cocktails. Additionally, the kitchen prepared one of the items with an allergen. While the server did catch it before it was served,... More

Went there on a sunny Friday afternoon at 1:15 and there wasn't another party there. Sat on the balcony overlooking a taco place and a waffle store, both packed. This place needs more and better marketing. Even the front door of the hotel doesn't tell you it's here, and there's only one sign up on the second floor. We've walked... More

We had lunch during our visit to the pier. The location is upstairs within Shorebreak Hotel. We ate on the patio with some of the patrons who brought their dogs. How wonderful. Food was tasty and wait staff was great. I loved the Turkey sandwich and all of it's fixins. Highly recommend eating here. Enjoyed the parmesan fries.

I come here about once a month and really like their menu. They have a eclectic breakfast menu. The outside area of the patio over looks the HB Pier. Good food great prices. They are dog friendly and the Hotel is as well. Good service but sometimes it can take time for the food to come out. Not a negative... More

We sat out on their lovely patio seating since we dined with our 60 lb lab. I was more than satisfied at the great service they staff even gave to our pooch. My husband and I didn't want to take leftovers back to our hotel, so we split the carrot ginger soup (very delicious!) and the burger. The bacon jam... More
