Mosaic Bar & Grille
Their food is good but way overpriced for what it wss
This is a small, casual, outdoor restaurant adjacent to the Montage Resort pool. It is expensive but that is to be expected at the Montage. It offers a somewhat obstructed view of the pacific but a clear view of the pool and lawn. There was live music, the musician was very good, along with a wedding taking place on the lawn the evening that we dined. There are several large umbrella's to shield you from the sun but still not enough for the evening before sunset. The sun sits just below the umbrella's reach and forces you to sit with your back to the water or be blinded by the sun. Service was very friendly but slow. I'm not sure why so slow as only a handful of tables were occupied. Our appetizer came out two minutes ahead of our meal. No apology or explanation was offered. The food is excellent and beautifully presented. I had the Cabo Shrimp which I would highly recommend. It is five large shrimp with poblano peppers and onions served on rice.. The shrimp were so large that I cut each into three bite size pieces. It was an amazing dish. Because we were in no hurry and were entertained with the wedding the slow service did not bother us. We enjoyed our meal and the entertainment. The Montage is a beautiful property and we enjoyed a nice walk along the ocean side trail after dinner.
While Mosaic is classy and expensive as part of a first-class resort, it also has the local Laguna Charm we love. The food is extraordinary and the setting is spectacular. Mosaic is our favorite dining spot in Laguna. We treat ourselves every year on our Birthdays. For lunch I recommend the Steak Cobb Salad. This last visit we noticed that the Steak Cobb Salad was not on the dinner menu; next time we will go for lunch.
