Weekend at Shade

Love the Zinc Resturant at Shade Hotel. Anytime were staying at the Hotel there is really no need for us to go anywhere else. The staff is always friendly and service is great. The breakfast French toast is amazing!

I stopped in here to look at the hotel and ended up staying for dinner. I was blown away by their craft cocktails! The Spicy Tuna on Crispy Rice was the best I have ever had! I really enjoyed the Truffle Sliders as well. Great ambiance. I think it is the only real lounge in the South Bay.

First time hanging out at Zinc@Shade, the lounge that is normally open was closed for a private event. The rooftop bar ended up being open so we hung out up there, I was hesitant because of the cold but it was set up beautifully with a fire pit and heaters every where. They had a limited menu but the Brie... More

We had a group of 10 for dinner in December. Sat outside but the heaters were on because it was a bit cool. The meal was awesome. We mainly just ate off the share and appetizer menu because it was so good. And the prices are not like the spendy "it's all about the presentation" meals you get at some... More

We had lunch here, and loved it! I got the Zinc salad, which was refreshing and healthy! We stayed at Shade so in the morning, they offer a beautiful breakfast, complete with fresh beet juice!

A group of us were in town for work so we decided to make this our last-night dinner. We checked out the menu online and were impressed with what we saw so off we went! Upon arrival we were told there was a benefit going on but that they could seat us outside - they had heaters going so this... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Zinc@Shade. Reviews such as yours only help us learn and grow. I would like to start off by apologizing that your experience at Zinc was anything less than perfect. We are fortunate enough to have many large parties but this is no excuse that other guests shouldn't have the best service possible.... More

Usually make my way here a few times a month on a Friday or Saturday. Really great place to grab a few drinks and great food. Zinc has a fantastic vibe and the service is always spot on as well.

I sat in the lounge but I would like to come back and try to sit on the terrace for dinner. Looks like a great spot for a date! The lounge had a great bar scene. There were great finger foods to go with my Moscow Mule. Service was on point. The waitress recommended the Short Rib Tacos and I... More

one of the best lunchtime salads I've had. Great asian style tuna and hamachi salad with avocado and citrus dressed salad in a cucumber ribbon bowl. Just super. Could eat it again and again.
