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.

We had a lovely, low-key happy hour meal here with our seven year old boy. Mac and cheese, BBQ chicken drummies, and onion rings with fabulous homemade ranch dressing. A modest $5 wine pour and a tasty $5 draft beer. We added a kale salad from the regular dinner menu to round out the offerings. A view of the pool,... More

Not impressed with the cleanliness of the place. I found few dirty glasses/cups on my table. But, very friendly staff! The Croissant was fresh only the first day and the rest of my stay it was not.

Decor and reception was great. First class staff, cordial, knowledgeable. The food choice was wide both at breakfast and dinner. Prices in the medium to high... More

I had dinner here and breakfast in the morning while staying at the Hilton Waterfront hotel. This restaurant includes a bar, indoor seating, and an outdoor patio. As usual for resort hotels, the prices are high, but the food is good and the atmosphere is relaxing. Service was attentive and friendly and all the food items are freshly prepared.
