After a fabulous bike ride along the beach on a sweltering hot day over July 4th weekend, we were almost home, when we passed the Shade Hotel and I thought...ahhh a patio....an ice cold cocktail...let's stop here! And what a great idea it was! Fruity martini for me and sangria for my friend. Relaxing on the dog friendly patio watching... More

Needed a bite to eat for lunch and thought I would try the restaurant in the Shade Hotel. Super burger that hit the spot. Glad I tried here, rather than explore the surrounding restaurants. Worth a try, I am sure you will not regret it. Sit out on the patio and people watch.

Living in Manhattan Beach, we find ourselves at Zinc quite frequently. The atmosphere is always buzzing especially during brunch on sunny weekends. The service we received on Sunday was excellent second only to the outstanding food.

Great lunch very friendly staff I had the fish taco's which were great. My husband had the grilled mahi mahi with tempura coated asparagus. Everything that was being served around us looked awesome.

The food at The Shade hotel is excellent. That added on to the atmosphere of this boutique hotel make it a five star location for lunch or dinner. All of the serving sized are generous and the staff is extremely friendly. Lots of specialty drinks to go with the perfect meal.

We eat breakfast at Zinc almost every weekend. Organic, farm fresh food. The eggs are bright orange for some reason and I'm told it's because they are some special organic version. Whatever it is, they are good! Great deal for eggs, canadian bacon, berries and toast. The Belgian waffle is cooked to perfection. Service is inconsistent so beware it may... More

Locals and hotel guests gather at Zinc throughout the day for breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner. Breakfast is complimentary for Shade hotel guests which adds to the value of the room rate. Tables are outside on the hotel porch with a group of high tables and chairs inside. The tapas style food and service is fantastic at Zinc with daily... More

A very cool bar...in the upscale Manhattan Beach neighbourhood. The staff are great, and give you lots of attention. It's a beautiful hotel and even if you're not staying there defo check out the zinc bar. It's about a 5min walk from the beach.

we discovered the zinc lounge during our first stay at shade hotel a few years ago. my initial fear was that this would be another captive hotel bar-food experience - nothing could be further from the truth! they have a proper chef that designs the menus and operates the food service like you would expect from a top restaurant. the...

During my 5 days at the luxurious Shade Hotel we ate many breakfasts/lunches there. All the food was impeccable, but I particularly loved the Belgian waffles and truffle kobe burger which were to die for, oh and you have to try the ginger mimosa, so good! The service is efficient and friendly. The staff were great to get advice from... More
