    Wonderful seaside elegant dining. We enjoyed the egg plant and the sea bass. The sundaes with home made ice cream were a treat. The mixed drinks were also special.

    We enjoyed an exquisite lunch. The Sea Bass was wonderful and the Madagascan Dark Chocolate Molten Cake was heavenly. The atmosphere was relaxed and we were able to dally over our food and beverages. It would have been nice if our water was filled without our asking, but the waitress was delightful in all other ways.

    Our server, Roger, was so kind and fun to interact with; he gave great attention to our party of 2 and had great input and recommendations for the menu. Salmon tartare is a must and the oysters were some of the best I’ve had in a while. Such a lovey night. Thank you!

    Date night here at The loft on laguna Very nice hotel entrance, the restaurant itself was elegant and well put together Amazing views of the ocean The service was second to non, everyone we came in counter with was professional, friendly and helpful The food was high end to say the least , I had the wagyu New York strip and lobster tail Side of potato pure, carrots , and sautéed mushrooms My wife had the risotto with chicken addition Both dishes were filling and exquisitely tasty The bill was a few hundred dollars for a party of 2 but that is expected when dinning in the beautiful city of laguna

    This was our first visit to the Loft at Montage. It was for a birthday lunch. Everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful. We sat outside and the view was spectacular. The service was excellent. We ordered different dishes and shared them. Everything was excellent and unique. We shared the crudite plate and enjoyed the incredible variety of fresh veggies. My son had the roast chicken and it was very tasty. My wife enjoyed the Cauliflower andArtichoke soup. My salad with shrimp was very tasty.

    We dined outside and there were many children in the area wandering and even singing. The food selection was limited and my steak was tough and overcooked. The server was great. He was very attentive and made a so so evening wonderful. Seems like Montage has lost a step from our past experiences here.

    The service was excellent and each server more helpful than the next. However we would like to pass along that the valet service left something to be desired. The employees are very young, and do not seem to be managed, they group and laugh, and talk about vehicles and guess. That was the only downside of our visit. Thank you.
