Stopped in to meet some friends from out of town while we were waiting for our room to be prepared. Not very many draft beer options. Chips and guac were tasty. Service was so-so. They were busy with a private event, but the bartender was slow at responding.

We got $15 pp breakfast vouchers for this restaurant all week as our diamond amenity. This covered the continental breakfast buffet but not the hot buffet, though most of the servers just gave us the hot buffet for free any way. I ordered off of the menu once, they had some specialty waffles that looked great and were delicious. The... More

Nothing to write TA about. Food was as expected. Service was a bit slow and you paid Hilton prices. You can do better locally.

We used to come here at least once a week last year and we since the weather was good we decided to have dinner here again because they are just a few restaurant in the area that are dog friendly. So we had our dog with us and we ordered the cheese and meat platter and ribs with fries. They... More

We ate breakfast here several mornings during our stay. The biggest fault I had with anything here was the service. Slllllllooooooowwwww. Hostesses were always friendly. The food is ok... the American breakfast is probably your best bet as there are lots of options. Omelettes were so so. Coffee was fine. Just took forever to get my order in or get... More

Shades is good, very good actually. Everyone had a good meal and the service was especially good. The only downside was that the menu had very little for vegans. We liked what we did have, but we looked for another spot the next day because we didn't want to eat the same thing again. More vegan options would be a... More

Had dinner here alone and took food back to husband who was recovering from surgery. Prime Rib was the special and just what I wanted - and was good. Kinda expensive but nice atmosphere with live musician who did some great tunes.

Very nice meal while visiting in Huntington Beach. We were seated outside which was perfect. We tried the BBQ Rub salmon and Pappardelle Pasta. The salmon was the clear winner. It was a slow evening, but the staff was very attentive and helpful. Good spot, good food, and nice setting.
