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!

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
