Rated 2 out of 5 by The atmosphere was very pleasant.However, the food portion (Sea Bass) was very.... very small and over-salted with soy sauce to where we couldn't finish it, it was just too salty.The signature dessert was too syrupy, so we couldn't finish it.Overall, I loved the atmosphere....however we left the place still hungry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Went to The Shangri-La Hotel restaurant,The Dining Room, to celebrate sister's b-day. Arrived around 4pm on a Saturday afternoon, it was not crowded which was a plus because it's a small cozy space. Wanted to be there in time for sunset around 5:20pm that day, and boy did we! Our table gave us a beautiful view of the ocean directly across the street. Food was tasty and hot. Wait staff was attentive and kind. They took all of the photos we wanted, even suggested better angles :-). Also visited Suite 700 on the Pent House level. Cute rooftop bar with a great bird's eye view of the pier. Overall, we do plan to return, next time for happy hour (4-7/M-F) and more Cali sunsets! Feb 2, 2014
