Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort

Huntington Beach, California - Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort in Huntington Beach recently had a makeover at the Palm Court Restaurant. Formerly filled with graphic art designs of palms trees in natural hues, the restaurant now enjoys rich wood hues, sturdy but elegant fabrics and rich red tones with lamps that create a club effect.  Classical music piped in through a sound system has replaced the long time keyboardist, Eugene, who played popular tunes. The effect is a relaxing atmosphere enhanced by a full bar and extensive wine selection that creates a mood to linger and enjoy the ambiance.

If you've dined in Carmel Valley Ranch's The Oaks Dining Room, the feel of the remade Palm Court is  similarly classic elegance not overdone. The views are different from those of golf course landscapes and deer passing by in Carmel Valley. Instead you see pools of water, palm trees and open sky. Fresh flowers, red glow of the Moroccan lights and darker dining than previously offered befit the menu and price which begins at $10/person for a light salad to around $75-100/person for a full meal and wine or cocktails. The Hilton has never been considered a low-priced dining experience and there's a reason why.  Chef Jeff Littlefield pays attention to the details. The food preparations are clearly a cut above.  Unless you have trained in the finer kitchens, you are not going to find the selections and original treatments that make every dish a delight. See a sample of some recent dishes ordered.

The views from the Palm Court are some of the loveliest dining views in Huntington Beach, too. Duke's at the Beach offer beach and pier views, sometimes with a lot of action and things to watch. The Hilton has ocean view dining but it is tranquil with symmetrical palm trees, sand and the blue ocean offering more of a setting that provides a focus on dining. Hilton Shades prices range from around $8.95 for breakfast items and appetizers up to $50 for entrees (approximate). For special occasions and overnight accommodations at the hotel, do try the food. It is very good, gourmet faire to be precise.

The award-winning Shades Restaurant features California Contemporary Cuisine complemented by a wine list which focuses on the California regions. The wine list offers a selection of moderately priced wines by the glass or full bottle. Whether sitting inside the beautifully decorated restaurant or out on the pool-side patio, there is a magnificent view of the Pacific Ocean. Entertainment is provided nightly by our talented pianist. The always popular Champagne Brunch is available every Sunday from 10 am to 3 pm. At the Sunday Brunch, you will enjoy a wide variety of foods including a carving station, made to order omelets, Belgian waffles, fresh sushi, and an irresistible assortment of desserts. Throughout the brunch, our talented magician provides entertainment as he makes his way to each table mystifying our guests with his slight of hand, and the melodious sounds of the harpist playing will only add to your enjoyment of this Sunday tradition served with a California twist.

Shades is open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Attire is casually elegant.
