  • "Panoramic view of Laguna Beach cliffs and awesome food!!"
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "Excellent food! Impeccable service! Amazing view!"
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "The order of Asparagus with Arugula was not worth the $21. I think the arugula had some dressing, however, it did not have any taste and the 4 spears of grilled asparagus on feta cheese was bland as well. The service and the view of the ocean were spectacular."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "The service, view, and food are fantastic. The food is prepared to perfection. What else can be said, it's Montage!"

  • "The incredible ocean view, diverse, delicious menu and the attentive staff at the Loft create the perfect setting for lunch. The chicken piccata salad with organic greens proved to be extraordinary. The tomato soup with local ingredients and the sourdough cheese sandwich was divine. Since it was my friend's birthday, a chocolate hand written message was inscribed on the plate which delivered her decadent l0 layer torte. We also ordered the apple tart which was outstanding. It was easy to forget the area below the restaurant was full of sun bathers and frolicking children since their noise level never disturbed our conversation. The helpful and gracious staff truly made my friend feel like "royalty" for a day."

  • "The food was delicious and the presentation was on key. The service of our waiter David B was exceptional and made our experience unique and to be remembered. The attention to detail was phenomenal and to top it all of the scenic view at The Montage completed our wonderful experience. We'll be back!"

  • "We have been staying at the resort, and have had fabulous service, and good-to-great food, but tonight , the POOR service overwhelmed the food and the view. It was a shock, but has happened a few times..."

  • "My husband and I spend a lot on dining out all over the world and have eaten at the Loft at the Montage often. This was the last time. The current menu prices have now reached the ridiculous. A salmon appetizer dish for 23 dollars that holds so little salmon you find yourself searching for it under the pile of sprouts. Add in a 9 dollar coffee, and you are left feeling like you were pick-pocketed while your back was turned taking in the gorgeous views of the Laguna Beach shoreline."

  • "Everything was delicious here. You can't go wrong. The service was immpecible and the chilaquiles was the best that I've had. Beautiful setting! I could spend the rest of my life there at that beautiful resort."

  • "Our server Danielle was wonderful - great attitude, relaxed, accurate timing, helpful explanations, wonderful smile, accommodating and understanding character. She definitely helped my birthday feel special, and helped create a relaxing atmosphere. The lobster eggs benedict was very tasty and I will recommend it to any foodie. Your breakfast selections were better than most other nearby locations I researched. The atmosphere and scenery was enchanting, airy, relaxing and beautiful. Thank you."

  • "Well I wanted to celebrate my first weekend of retirement and choose the Loft because of the location. We were not disappointed and my trout entree and my husbands of halibut did not disappoint. The view was fantastic on the deck looking over the ocean and pool area. I would definitely recommend the Loft for a special occasion. Thank you for making this a memorable dinner!"

  • "Any time I want a good restaurant to enjoy or experience going back to The Loft is a guarantee of success. It is not cheap (figure $100 per person depending ) but it is also not crazy expensive. They are accommodating and the food is well prepared and the presentation is equally wonderful. Enough said...go try it out.!!"

  • "The attention to detail was perfect at this restaurant from the moment we arrived. My wife and I were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary and the staff at the restaurant gave us a first class treatment. From the complimentary champagne to the complimentary scallops provided to us from the Chef. The staff were very attentive from the minute we walked into the hotel until the minute we left. This restaurant and hotel are definitely a must to enjoy whenever you are in Laguna Beach!"

  • "Great food , service and incredible view -- and pay top$$. That's ok, but to then get hit with 11$ parking is chintzy. Other equally and better places in laguna with no added cost for parking. Probably will not go back --- unless I walk there!!"

  • "The Loft has a grear location over looking the pool and the ocean. In general, the food is good, but not as good as what I would expect at those prices. The Sommelier knows his wines, but as soon as you order a cheap wine( $50), you never see him again. We were not able to finish our bottle because he never came back to finish pouring it for us."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "We felt very welcomed and attended to, throughout our anniversary celebration dinner. The meal was so wonderful and the view took us back to memories of our Honeymoon in Hawaii. A lovely memorable time of celebrating at The Montage."

  • "My husband and I wanted to celebrate our special occasion. We wanted a romantic place with a view and light lunch all of that was at the Loft. The Tomato soup was excellent, best shrimp cocktail I ever had, really enjoyed the French press coffee. After lunch we strolled leisurely along the water's edge for the magnificent views of Laguna Beach truly a memorable occasion. Gina, Irvine, CA"

  • "Food was very good, but not over the top. Mac and cheese was just average with pasta other than macaroni to make it stand out. Sandwiches were large and flavorful. Wine list extensive with some excellent labels to choose from but very highly priced. Wait staff were very friendly and helpful"

  • "Excellent food and service. Dined outside, great view. Seagull stole my piece of bread!!! Loved hearing Steve Siu in lounge. He's amazing! First time at Loft, have dined at Studio before. Both excellent dining venues.."

  • "Decided to try a place I have only heard of from a few friends in the restaurant industry, living in LA it's very refreshing to see the ocean and clean cut shorelines around The Loft at Montage Beach Resort. My girlfriend and I came in for lunch, reserved table for two on the balcony, what a view! A wedding ceremony was being setup and numerous people were enjoying the pool on a great Sunday afternoon. Amazing staff, courteous, knowledgeable of the menu, food and beverages alike, kudos to the Truffle Pizza!! Will certainly be back, great environment, great view, great service!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "The Loft restaurant needs updating, particularly on the outside where carpets and furniture are worn. The food quality is high, but does not justify the expense. Be careful of eating while the Montage is hosting a wedding. Part of the wedding party was nearby and disruptive."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Fabulous view, great food and terrific service allows the diner an exquisite experience. This is a pricey place to dine, but our anniversary meal,was made very special by the staff, and we were happy to pay the bill. The view is non pariel with nearly anyplace in the world."

  • "My husband and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary and from the moment we stepped foot inside the restaurant until the time we stepped out, the service was undeniable. The food was terrific and consistent. Lots of variety for the foodies and those with dietary restrictions. I would have been completely satisfied with the wine and gluten-free rolls that were served before dinner. The meal flavors were well balanced and complementary."

  • "This was my first visit after the renovations and it did not disappoint. We sat on the patio and had a wonderful breeze and view. The food was exceptional as always. Menu offered enough choices to allow for many tastes to be satisfied. My selection was the Rotisserie Chicken Sandwich with sweet potato fries. The quality was great and service impecable as usual. The Porch is a must visit for any business lunch in the area."

  • "One of the highlights of our dining experience at The Loft was the cheese board. We were given excellent choices of cheese, figs, jellies as well as nuts and raisin breads to enjoy with the cheese. The cheese selected for us were "exotic." It was fun exploring the unique and very tasty cheese. The wines were wonderful, too. The seasonal soups were very nourishing. We thoroughly enjoyed the ocean breeze as we gazed out on the beautiful view. The staff were friendly, attentive and fun to be with!"

  • "The Loft has one of the most beautiful views in Southern California. Our lunch was wonderful and the service was perfect. Our server helped us choose a lovely wine that paired beautifully with the food we chose. It was a special birthday for one of our party and the day was made more special by dining at The Loft."

  • "My husband and I went to The Loft for dinner for our one year anniversary! Talk about being treated like royalty! All of the staff were so friendly, Brandon our server was amazing! He was great at leaving us alone enough but making sure we were being taken care of! My husband had the alaskan halibut, and I had the short ribs, both melted in your mouth they were cooked to perfection. We enjoyed a small charcuterie board, and the bacon alone, as the chef specified, was PHENOMENAL! i cannot say enough positive things about our experience, we will absolutely be back to dine here!"

  • "I have decided that each time I eat at the loft I am reminded of airport food. Yes, it is a lovely spot. However, my patio is just as nice as far as location and view. I go to a restaurant for good food and service. Food here is always so bland and basic. Such a disappointment and most definitely NOT worth the price. I have no qualms about paying for a good meal, but this is consistently mediocre. I will be telling friends to please stop gift cards to Montage. So sad. "
