amazing fine food however very pricey (our Charcuterie was 47.00 for very small portions)
We all love the place, the food, the service. The servers treat us a friends.
Our experience with the staff and to the food was really lovely. Also, Chris on the music was just phenomenal.
Food and view are amazing. The noise level from the bar onto the patio where we were having our romantic Valentines experience was so loud we could barely speak and hear one another. The staff tried Ti jeep the doors closed once they noticed but it was constantly left open and gave the feeling of being in a sports bar, not a 5 star dining experience. The management should give some thought to this!
Wonderful service from Stephen. Pork shoulder with hominy baked in chili verde!
Was really excited to have dinner with a view of the ocean. Other than the breadbasket, the meal was unremarkable. The breadbasket is great--lots of choices that all taste great. Started with oysters, which were shucked abysmally. More than half of them had shell chunks that were unpleasant to find in your mouth, and they were very tiny oysters. The scallop-greens-bacon entree was nice, large scallops cooked properly. The sea bass, which isn't the thickest fish to begin with, was the thinnest piece, over cooked and dry. The wine steward offered a nice, off-menu chablis. Otherwise, service was acceptable, albeit indifferent. Ambiance issue--the heaters outside emit a high pitch noise. It didn't bother me much--I wanted to be warm--but it bothered others outside, who kept asking for heaters to be turned off. So I was freezing cold. Thank goodness for a view and bread. Unfortunately, I would not return based on this experience.
Amazing view, great food and service. I'd recommend this to anyone looking to have called memorable night out, no matter the occasion.
Service was terrible. Food was great.
Overpriced and very limited menu. Bad service. Restaurant and hotel was dated. Doesn’t compare to Monarch Beach Resort - go there instead.
We were very disappointed with our experience at The Loft restaurant in The Montage. We have been going to that restaurant for years - but last night it appears things have changed. We were offered to select a wine from the wine list of their other more formal restaurant. Then they told us they only had one copy of that wine list in the restaurant and it was in use by another guest at the moment. 20 minutes later the wine list was brought to us. We had to wait another 20 minutes to have the wine brought to our table. We were there over 45 minutes before our order was taken. I don’t know if there has been a change in the management of the restaurant - but things were noticeably different. Such a shame. It will be awhile before we ever go back.
Excellent service. The staff is well trained thoroughly by Montage. They are knowledgeable, efficient, and guided by a sense of pride that is unmatched.
We had a wonderful evening understanding The Loft was also the temporary Lobby Bar.
Not to be missed experience. Unparalleled setting, exquisite service, and perfectly prepared dishes.
My daughter is on a special diet and both our server and the chef were unbelievably helpful and cooperative in making her a delicious meal. Thank you again!
Excellent food & service! Celebrating a birthday & they thoughtfully brought a nice "treat" with candle as a surprise at the end of our meal. Never felt rushed & were there about three hours.
GREAT MEALS HAD HERE..BOTH BREAKFAST(ONE DAY BEST HASH BROWNS EVER) AND AWESOME DINNER..CRABCAKE(BEST EVER)..KIDS MEALS THE BEST TOO..
THANKS..FIVE VISITS IN THREE DAYS AT THE MONTAGE...GREAT AND FRIENDLY STAFF TOO!!!THANKS FOR A GREAT FEW DAYS..BACK TO CHICAGO AREA
Loved it definitely will be going back there. Great for a date night with your partner. Great scenic views, definitely romantic, and exceptionally well ambience
Obviously a beautiful setting and resort. Food and service were excellent but definitely pricey. If it's a special occasion or you're not concerned about the price, great place.
For a business luncheon in Laguna Beach you can't beat the Montage because it puts everyone in a great mood. The food is good and the service very attentive, as a dining experience it's almost idyllic
We made reservations at The Loft for brunch on New Year's Day. Had my mother visiting. She loves brunch, and so I wanted to take her to a nice place. The meal was very disappointing. Although we had reservations, it took about 10 minutes to be seated. We had requested a view table, but was seated at a high-traffic table with no clear view of the beach/water. The carpet and table was dirty. Of the four meals we ordered, three arrived prepared wrong. It took about 10 minutes before our waitress came to check on us. She had two of the meals remade, which took about ten more minutes. My coffee was refilled once, although I would have liked more. It was served with no sugar, so I had to ask for it. I ordered a specialty fruit juice, but they were out of it. It took another 10-15 minutes to receive the bill..the full price bill ($135.00)..and no apology. The manager did stop by the table to apologize, and did not proactively try to compensate us for the numerous errors. My daughter said she would have had a better breakfast at Starbucks. I would not recommend this restaurant, nor do I ever plan to go back. For such a high-end hotel (The Montage), the management should be embarrassed by the quality and service provided.
