There were plenty of empty tables, but we were stuck in the corner by the serving station. Disappointed since we made a reservation three weeks in advance.

The combination of unmatched views and excellent cuisine make a meal at The Loft a truly special experience. As locals, we have our choice of many delightful places on the coast, but this is one we come back to again and again and share with friends who are visiting.

Montage is one of my favorite places on the planet but my Valentine's Day experience was awful. First off, they put us in a tiny courtyard rather than on the terrace overlooking the ocean. No mention of that possibility when I booked our reservations and the hostess was very uninterested in that fact. Food was VERY late and VERY cold. Just terrible. The ONLY positive experience was Joshua, our server who was working his tail off and obviously embarrassed by the food, the setting and slow service. Management obviously booked too many people. Very disappointing and a complete waste of money. I've spent a lot of money here, including my 50th birthday party, but this was certainly not the same place.

Great service and excellent food. We went Sunday, Valentines Day for Brunch. Would have given it 5star but no Champagne 🥂 with Tye Brunch. I had the chicken, ( excellent) and the wife had the omelette. Make sure you request ocean view which we had. Our server Chris was awesome. Very courteous, proper with excellent service. Valet staff was great too! very friendly. Highly recommend and would return again especially things normalize. 👍

We chose Montage to celebrate a very special Birthday for my mother. From beginning to end the service was outstanding. Michael the food and beverage director helped me to organize a truly intimate and meaningful evening from beginning to end. The sommelier was fantastic and our server Patrick was on top of everything and allowed the dinner to flow seamlessly without the feeling of being rushed. Highly recommend this dining venue to anyone looking for a wonderful experience dining out in any time. A special commendation to the entire team for their observation of Covid safety and for having recyclable paper menus that you could hold which in this time is a rare occurrence. First class all the way. Heartfelt thanks to the entire team at the Loft at Montage.

No specialty drink, menu is boring for a resort with $1000-8000 a night stay you would think they would have a nice steak and sea food menu. The kitchen dropped all the chicken so my wife’s valentine Meal was unavailable. My pork chop was as dry as possible and then I ordered a lemon drop and they salt rimmed the glass instead of sugar..... also when we get there after making reservations more than a week out they tried to sit us in a makeshift courtyard surrounded by hotel rooms instead of the ocean view restaurant. Website said parking is free for dinner and the. We get surprised with $25 for parking plus tip. Would never recommend anyone go there as I live local and there are so many beautiful restaurants in and around Laguna beach.

We talk lots about the pandemic effect on workers and restaurants there is also lots of stress for patrons
The lift has been closed for more than a month, employees were furloughed. And now they are back to work day one
Occupancy at hotel is 7% We were the only ones having breakfast. 26 dollar for eggs plus service and more

The waiter common response was NO WE CANT
Asked if the sauce could be made hotter - chef doesn’t do that- can we add some fresh jalapeños NOT PICKLED PLEASE. Eggs arrive cold full of vinegar. Almost not eatable

At diner. Same place 2 tables. Food was good 50 dollar corkage and slows really. Not customer sensitive

So we eat out of the hotel after that

Too bad. How little customer. Sensitive they were

Obviously a nice place. Food was good but wasn’t blown away by any means. I cancelled a reservation at Mastros just to have a nicer view. Ordered a steak which sounded nice and it was good but at the same price point as mastros I would have preferred them.

We took our son and daughter in law for dinner after learning that we were about to become grandparents for the first time. Laguna Beach has many fine choices. We’ve been to most! We’ve dined at the Loft for other meals and knew dining outside while watching the sunset would be perfect.
The restaurant did not disappoint.

Excellent Sunday brunch at The Loft. Service was on point. Great views of the Pacific from either inside or outside. Valet parking was a little backed up but they were hustling to get everyone accommodated. Great place to spend a Sunday afternoon.

No one told me it was bistro hour when i booked. Not even when they called to confirm. I went to have valentine's day lunch with my husband and enjoy the view, montage is his favourite spot to relax. But it was a terrible meal, the dip was horrible and the caesar salad was mediocre. We went out of the restaurant, paying a lot of money while we ate nothing.

3 1/2 stars really. 5 star location and view, 3 stars for the bare bones lunch menu, something like 10 items to choose from, about 5 appetizers and 5 sandwiches. A $28 burger confirms you are paying for the view and the Laguna experience. It’s a magnificent place. We had the fried calamari because there wasn’t much else on the appetizer side that seemed worthwhile. I split a burger with my girlfriend not to save money but because the other right side of menu offerings like the club sandwich seemed to lack any creativity. And at that price you shouldn’t feel so limited.

Afterwards we went upstairs to the main lobby bar. Beautiful sunset and vibe. Great place to hang out as the evening set in with a piano player setting the mood. People are both dressed up and coastal casual.

Service was 4ish stars. The server in the lobby bar didn’t bring water on first request and had to be asked again after she brought our drinks. Other resorts I’ve visited in OC show a little more attention. Perfectly friendly but maybe just more casual. I did enjoy the pace though - not hurried. You could hang all afternoon as we did with a 3 pm lunch reservation staying til 8:00 pm. Almost like staying at the resort itself. You really forget that the world is going on out in the rest of OC.

I am local and took my girlfriend for Valentine’s Day. Very nice. It’s a bit like visiting Disneyland. You don’t go for the food, you go for the experience.

Love this place but at times the staff (blonde hostess) can be quite snooty. Giving you a dirty look when you request a different table at an EMPTY restaurant. Glad her attitude didn’t spoil my evening as this place is a gem.

That was hands down the best restaurant I have ever went to. The fillet minion and the customer service was top notch! I went there for my 1 year anniversary and I got a free cake and had my parking ticket paid for free (15$ ticket). The view is also breathtaking. If you are taking your girl make sure it’s at sunset ;) I recommend this place to everyone.

As usual, our overall experience was superb. Our waiter was less than experienced though. He told us he had only worked there 6 months, and it really showed. We had long wait times between drinks, food, desserts and waiting for the bill. Other than that, it was superb.

Felt like we were in “an old folks home” to quote a local who loves the hotel but not this restaurant and she was right! The other restaurants are nicer. The food at Loft wasn’t special or that tasty. Just blah. The interior design is so depressing. Staff is fabulous so i feel badly for them but avoid this place and go off site or eat in the other two restaurants.
