Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort

Huntington Beach, California - Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort in Huntington Beach has recently experienced a makeover. Not only has the Palm Court room decor changed, the menu has experienced a transition. On a recent visit we sought the Grilled Salmon dish with the crusted exterior in a slightly sweet, mellow flavor that sears in the juice and texture. It wasn't there. What we found was a Pan Seared Halibut with Wild Mushroom Risotto & Sugar Snap Peas or a Cedar Plank Roasted Salmon with White Bean Ragout, Oven Dried Tomatoes & Aged Balsamic. 

Seeking something light, I ordered a salad of Boston Bibb Lettuce Wedges with Toasted Almonds & Maytag Blue Cheese Dressing, shown above. I sought a light meal but was advised that though the Sauteed Shrimp Scampi with Garlic, Lemon and Tomato ($14) was superb, it might not be enough if you haven't eaten all day. I asked the chef to add a shrimp or two in a customized dish made just for me and the results are seen above in the top photo. We will not quote a price because it was a special order that you would need to discuss with your chef or food server, if available. 

Heavenly shrimp were served with a sauce you couldn't help but take olive bread and dip into to savor each flavorful bite. Again, the Hilton Waterfront Resort kitchen knows exactly how to prepare fish, offering quick heat to the outside sealing in the flavors and juices, while providing a delightful texture to each morsel. 

For gourmet food that offers flavor, complex combinations of spices make you yearn for more, even though you are full, you need to treat yourself to the elegantly casual dining room or patio of the new Palm Court.

Other menu items include New York Steak Aged and Seasoned with the perfect blend of Sea Salt and Herb Oil, Filet Mignon, Snake River Farm Pork Chop, Colorado Lamb Chop   and Beef Ribeye. All steaks are available grilled, or cast iron seared to seal in the juices. They are served with Cabernet Sauce and a choice of one side dish such as Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus, Whipped Potatoes, Gratin Potatoes with Caramelized Onions, Onion Strings, Wild Rice Pilaf with Mushrooms Scallions & Dried Fruit, Caramelized Sweet Creamed Corn, Fine Green Beans with Shallots or Sauteed Forest Mushrooms.

Deserts include a rich chocolate cake and the ever famous Creme Brulee.
