Absolutely beautiful and best
Great service! We’ve come here for special occasions many times during the year. However corkage fee of $50 and parking of $50 no thank you, the nickel and dimeing that has occurred has really ruined this place for us! Just head on over to the Ritz Carlton down the street, great food and no gouging!
We were very disappointed. Although we had a waiter who was very nice and tried very hard he could not make up for the food coming out cold and the meals being served at different times. The room was full of what seemed like managers but none ever came over
Fantastic tasting food.
We found the service and the food were both outstanding. I was looking for a romantic spot to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday and it couldn't have been any better. We got there early (we had reservations) and got a table with a great view. The service was just what you want: there when you want it and unobtrusive at all other times. We both enjoyed their version of an old-fashioned cocktail, and we both found it delicious. Unfortunately we were not hungry enough to try one of the appetizers and went straight to the main course. She had the salmon and I had the sea bass. Both were perfectly prepared and perfectly seasoned. We got sides of asparagus and carrots. Both were good even if the carrots could've been slightly more cooked. We will be back for another special dinner.
The evening was delightful until we had guests at the table next to us with a small child that was screaming. Perhaps there could be a designated area for people with small children. It definitely ruined the atmosphere. Fortunately it was at the end of our evening.
LOVED The Loft. Went for my Dad's birthday and everything was amazing. Our server, Brandon, was so attentive and went above and beyond to make sure we were good.
It was our first time dining at the Loft as it was our anniversary. We had a 6pm reservation and were seated early which was nice since it was a Saturday night. My wife had the mussels and I had the octopus as an appetizers which were both excellent. For entrees, my wife had the Filet Mignon and I had the Rib Eye steak. Both were cooked perfectly, and excellent quality. We were given a dessert to share for our anniversary, which was a nice touch. We really appreciated the fact that we were not rushed as many restaurants want to feed you and get you out the door. of course, the view was exceptional. We will definitely be going back
Excellent food and service! Beautiful view!
Nice relaxing place to have a quiet lunch (during the week). Perfect for a date or lunch with friends. Service and food is what you would expect from the Montage and the views are amazing.
Poor service. Food not worth the price.
Had a lovely time with my beau at the montage this weekend. They do not set the bar, They are the Bar. The
Food is always good, the service is impeccable, and the atmosphere is top notch.
Overall experience was fabulous. Except for an unexpected mandatory valet fee that was incredibly over priced. Would reconsider if I was aware of this parking fee.
Always a great, friendly service starting from valet to everyone serving us. Food is delicious, cooked to perfection and a nice presentation! Thank you for the Anniversary cake. Our friends came from Encino and was very impressed and want to come back here again. The ocean view of course is gorgeous!
Service was excellent and the food was incredible
It's a beautiful location, but we've had better food there at other times. Service is always great, but wasn't impressed with the food this time.
The environment is very good, especially the view of outside window.
The cup is not that clean, there’s spots on the surface.
Breakfast here is delicious but a little bit expensive.
For our anniversary, we decided to try the ‘other dining location’ at the Montage. Definitely a more casual atmosphere. Maybe a bit too much - based on the attire of some of the patrons. The staff and food was excellent. The ocean views are great. Pricing is significantly lower than the Studio. Noise level is a bit high - due to the wood floors and the open entryway from the bar. Quiet conversations can be had by sitting near the windows. This place is much better than some of the dining options at the nearby ‘high-end resort hotels’. We will be back.
As is the OC, expensive and pretentious. The food was fairly standard, but views made it much better. The service was fantastic, but the value not so much. This a place to be seen and felt very hoity toity which I guess is to be expected.
Their jidori chicken is to die for... Three thumbs (well, three chicken toes) up!!!
I made a reservation 3 days ago. Received an immediate confirmation and then two separate confirmations. I went to the Montage and was informed that the restaurant was closed for breakfast and lunch today and tomorrow. The Montage did not follow through to cancel all existing reservations. I expect more from a property like this. Very poor.
Really enjoyed the meal, there were a few kids jumping around, but they were having a good time and not disturbing anyone. Food excellent, wine excellent and not overpriced. Didn’t feel rushed, service attentive. Tables and chairs could do with an upgrade to match the venue.
I would, the Selection of food was not that great but what we ordered was very good.
Four of us had reservations for 12:30 Sunday, August 25. We arrived early and were seated on the patio about 15 minutes before our scheduled reservation. The food was great (we ordered from the Brunch menu) as was the service. The only negative aspect of our visit was parking. When we drove up the hotel we were told there was no more valet parking available. We were sent to the small underground garage, which was already crammed full of cars looking for parking places or trying to turn around to escape the mess. We managed to turn around and eventually found a parking spot across Pacific Highway up the hill in a residential neighborhood. It seems to me that a hotel as upscale as the Montage should have ample parking for its guests--even those who come for lunch or dinner. That is certainly not the case at the Ritz-Carleton down the road. As I said, that was the only negative experience we had. I would recommend the Montage to friends, but I would warn them about the lack of adequate parking.
Food was excellent, atmosphere very nice and good service.
Excellent service, great view and food was delicious. Great portions and offerings!
Beautiful venue. Food was clearly well thought out, fresh ingredients, flavor was tasty. I think in an effort to afford us relaxing time in between courses, waits were a little long. However nice experience. Looking forward to returning for a special occasion again.
The food and service was excellent!!! It is one of my preferred restaurant.
Great food. Great service. Incredible views.
Our go to place for our anniversary lunch.
Food ok. Service outstanding. The hostess, server, all went above and beyond. Stunning views which is the reason we chose this restaurant exploring Laguna Beach while on vacation. 100% worth it for the views.
We had the best time! Our server, Maren, was absolutely wonderful! So kind and so helpful and great! The view can’t be beat and The food was amazing too! It was a perfect anniversary celebration for my husband and I!
Beautiful restaurant but horribly slow service and we didn’t get the correct order.
Our server Jess was great. Our shared entree, risotto with scallops took almost an hour to arrive. Jess informed us the chef did not like the way the 1st attempt came out of the oven resulting in the delay. Due to this, Jess graciously comped our three glasses of wine. We were also greeted with a glass of champagne and dessert to celebrate my wife’s birthday.
Ambience was amazing. All the food was wonderful except for the salmon which was undercooked and bland.
Excellent food and incredible view!
VERY DISAPPOINTED! This was a fabulous place to eat when Chef Casey was there! But, now it's just an expensive below average restaurant.
We had a great experience at the loft. The food was great. The service was amazing. Joshua, our waiter, was very attentive and really patient with our large group!
We had a lovely meal here. Four of us had salads with a different proteins. Very good. Service was good. View was perfect and weather amazing. Hard to beat!
We were seated on time. It took 25 minutes to get a Coca Cola and a juice once we were seated. That’s only because the bus boy noticed we had been sitting so long with nothing to drink. Our server disappeared after he took our drink order and the manager next to us spent 45 minutes arranging a table and not at all aware of what was going on around him. We then placed our order for food and 45 minutes later, no food and no waiter. It wasn’t even that busy or did they appear to be understaffed, just bad service all around. 90 dollars for a breakfast that had very poor service, the food itself was not bad however, just average.
The service was excellent by Sean and Logan! We come here often. This time for our Anniversary. Always an awesome experience with food and service. And of course the beautiful hotel and ocean view is just gorgeous!
