Great service and delicious calamari

Dined on March 30, 2016

We went for lunch to use up some Hyatt points. We were pleasantly surprised with the great taste and value of the calamari! That was by far my favorite part of the meal! It was pretty empty during weekday lunch, so we had very attentive service.

Came for seafood, but had mushrooms instead

Dined on February 28, 2016

My husband, daughter (12), and I were staying one night in Newport Beach at the Hyatt, so we decided to eat at SHOR since it was right at the hotel. We had a 7:00 p.m. Saturday evening reservation. We were seated immediately outside and had the choice to sit my the heaters or not. The restaurant was nearly empty. Our waiters were attentive and were available enough for our needs. We had the calamari appetizer (Tinker Bell breading, as my husband put it), mushroom brie soup (delicious), and ahi rice bowl (too spicy for my daughter, but the ahi was a good portion). My daughter had the mushroom tagliatelle (child's half portion which was huge) and I had the Caesar salad with grilled shrimp (delicious). Only got 3 shrimp. I would have paid more for four or five they were so good. My husband had the mixed green salad with apples and pecans which was fine. For dessert we got the My Pumpkin Pie in a jar to go. It tasted great but had the texture of soft cheese cake or pumpkin pie filling. All in all good food at a good value.

Valentine 4 Course Chef's Selection Was Excellent

Dined on February 13, 2016

I would not normally think of a hotel restaurant as the location for a creative and delicious chef's choice, four course menu, however the Hyatt's Shor exceeded my expectations. The food creations were delicious and the portions were just right. The short rib 'brick' with roasted radish was done very well and the dessert featured numerous unique creations and flavors. The restaurant ambiance is typical 'hotel restaurant', so don't go there looking for ocean views or exotic decor. However, for food and value, it scored very highly with us.

Dined on November 30, 2015

one other table and it took forever to get waited on; the only complaint. Our waiter was a charming man from Liverpool. He gave us a taste of the mushroom brie soup, delicious. The entres were unique and flavorful. I had salmon over cauliflower puree with pea tendrils and olive cracker. I was celebrating my birthday; and he served us a complimentary dessert of butter cake with cream cheese and caramel sauce. Great meal.

Dined on November 11, 2015

You were greeted warmly by Barbara, who was incredible. What an amazing first impression. Second, you are served with world class service by Julio and since I have dined here recently I was name recognized and the service was so professional, efficient, friendly and incredible. Julio is very knowledge about the food items and offered his suggestions and ideas, which I really appreciated. The menu has some great choices and my smoked salmon and my friends burrito were excellent. A total pleasure dining here, ask for Julio and receive a warm greeting from Barbara.

A miss

Dined on June 27, 2015

The positives...first and foremost - our waiter Chris was excellent. He was very friendly and very helpful. The restaurant was also very clean and comfortable. The negatives....the prices were high and the quality was low. The bread was hard, the food was bland, and the potatoes were completely undercooked. The kitchen must have been understaffed as well - the wait for food was one of the longest we have seen.

Dined on June 20, 2015

First time at the Shor American Seafood Grill, prior to the Bobby Caldwell concert. I was anticipating ordering from the main menu, but the Shor was only offering the buffet. If I would have known it was buffet only, I would have went to another venue for dinner. Maybe the main menu dinner is better, but the buffet was not worthy of the $60 price.

Cramped Brunch

Dined on May 10, 2015

Let me start off by saying the brunch itself is very good, but at $81.00 per person I would expect a little larger table and better table service. We were a party of 11 and was clearly stuck at a table for 8. This made eating quite uncomfortable. Next the table service was mediocre, when I came back with a new plate, my old one was still there. In addition, I had to clear the plates one time myself because we need the room on this very tight table. Given the price one pays with having to eat uncomfortable, we will need to find a better place for next Mother's Day.

I came here for a late Valentines dinner and the pictures of the food that I've seen on Yelp did taste as good as it looked. Marco was very polite and sociable server and he was very helpful with helping us choosing what to eat and explaining to us what was the menu item.

Great food - fantastic service

Dined on December 7, 2014

I had the pork chop and my wife enjoyed some past with shrimp. Our waiter was fantastic. We enjoyed a wonderful Ooey Gooey butter cake (a St. Louis favorite). We had a nice view of the grounds and fire pits outside. The restaurant was quiet. We would return for a special occasion.

We were seated at 2pm and the food was not fresh and the chefs had stopped cooking. For example they wwere no longer making waffles, roast beef was cold, ran out of ice cream in dessert section. Can't believe we paid $80 per plate for such poor quality food. Definitely did not gwy our money's worth.

The food and service were fine. However the dining ambience was more like a coffee shop with no tablecloths for evening dining. Half of the guests in the dining room were young children. It is not very appealing for adult dining in the evening.

Convenient but overpriced

vip
Dined on January 22, 2014

Convenient but overpriced for customers of the Hyatt Regency. We ate her three times because of a conference in the hotel. The butternut squash soup and crab cakes were good the risotto was not that good. Its pricey for what is being served. The wine is very overpriced. The 'outdoor' seating basically overlooks the driveway of the hotel.

Dined on January 1, 2014

We living locally and consider the menu there excellent, return every couple of months. Thought well enough of them to go for NY Eve dinner. Seafood selections are excellent. They have a good chef. Ambience is so-so because it's a hotel restaurant, so not very romantic. In warmer weather it would be good to dine outdoors with this menu, we haven't done that yet. Servers are always falling over themselves to be excellent, they really have g reat servers. Valet parking is comped if you tell them you are local.

Had an amazing experience here! The staff were all very friendly and knowledgable of the menu and wine. The food is mostly local and a lot scratch made. Some of the best crab cakes I've ever had. The lobster ravioli was also great. All around good seafood and service. Highly recommend.
