I ate dinner and breakfast at this restaurant while staying at the hotel. Both were very disappointing in terms of food quality. Service was excellent in both cases. The dinner entree came out cold and had to be returned. The salad had old and brown lettuce in it, was not properly dressed and simply unappealing to look at or eat. The breakfast was incredibly slow and did not taste good at all. I ordered the Mexican eggs which were not cooked to the level of doneness I requested. The sauce on a bed of chips was almost bitter. To the credit of the waiter given the meal was slow and the eggs were runny, when I had specifically requested them not to be, he comped the breakfast which was nice given I did not have enough time for a new order. But all in all I would not return under any circumstance.

This is a solid choice for dining onsite while staying at the HYATT property in Newport Beach. We ate outside and booked via open table. Lots of good menu choices to pick from: bone marrow, Mac and cheese, Brussels sprouts, fish etc. next to the patio is a large outdoor fire pit for drinks.

Tip: if you can try to dine outside versus inside, very hotel like decor.

It is surprisingly good for being located in a hotel without a lot of nearby competition. We were staying for a week and had breakfast included with our room so we ate there every morning. The service was excellent but Mr. Mejia went above and beyond, he even remembered our preferences from the previous day. If you go for dinner the Black Mussels are an excellent choice.

Wow this restaurant is quite a find. We would never have gone to it (since it is in a hotel) if it wasn't part of Newport Beach Restaurant Week. The food was some of the best we have sampled at any restaurant in the area. The portions were so large we took home leftovers and had them for dinner the next day. The drinks menu was low priced, and offered plenty of selections. I can't believe the last reviewer just called it "decent" ! Maybe he was a "meat and potatoes" sort of guy. As area locals we applaud the menu AND we now have a new favorite restaurant!

SHOR was the location of a recent business dinner I hosted and it was a good choice mainly for convenience. We stayed at the hotel and people might have been tired from traveling.

Food was good although not remarkable. As the name implies the focus is seafood. Everyone enjoyed the meal. Service was friendly and enthusiastic but they were a bit overmatched by the size of the party.
