Shade hotel is the best hotel in the South Bay hands down. It's not cheap, but it's the best. Zinc is their restaurant which is kind of in the bar / in the patio. The food is great for apps but not a great place to go for "dinner". It's a little over priced - even for Manhattan Beach; the... More

We enjoyed cocktails, wine, appetizers, dinner and breakfast. Each and every item we ordered was well prepared, well served and delicious. Service staff provides just the right amount of attention without interfering. The lounge/restaurant is small-ish but this only adds to the appeal. Dining in the covered outdoor area provided delightful ocean breezes, and the indoor lounge area is welcoming... More

I love the hotel, but because we are local I don't stay here. But, I eat here. Last night we had the best happy hour in Manhattan Beach!!! Bar none. Innovative food, fantastic and well thought out wine list and all 50% off! The staff was strong from our server to the hostess. Knowledgable and happy. I'd recommend the spicy... More

The Shade Hotel is upscale and their restaurant and bar measure up. Whether a quick drink or a long lunch you will feel special. Nice place to finish an evening at the beach.

What a great venue Zinc turned out to be for my husbands 29th birthday surprise dinner. I couldn't be more pleased with how nice and attentive the staff was. Erin was especially helpful in organizing the dinner and making sure everything went accordingly. We had 14 people and a table on the terrace it was really great. They even stored... More

I come here often for work or if I am just in the area. I love their Signature Zinc Chopped Salad with the smoked salmon. It's so tasty and good for you. I always try to sit on the patio and appreciate that there are heat lamps. They have a great wine selection and their service is always on point.

A tasty and relaxed brunch with friends sitting on the terrace. Menu has some great options. The bacon, avocado and cheese omelette with a side of seasonal fruit, or lobster Benedict with a side of hash brown, or spicy scramble with a side of English muffin were all delicious. Zinc @ Shade is a really friendly setting that accommodates families... More

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!
