My sister and I enjoyed dinner at Motif one evening during our stay at the St. Regis. We both had fish dishes that were wonderful. Service was OK, and views were dreamy!

The hotel itself was under major renovations which we were never informed of.....so the scenery was terrible. The service was fair at best...not good. The food was served warm (barely) and was not that tasty. The food was pretty expensive to leave unhappy. I do not think i could return. Enjoyed the food at the Ritz way better.

We were looking for something light to enjoy as a late night snack and found the best toasted sandwich with freshly fried chips.

Best experience ever!! The Manager, Anna, was awesome and super attentive. And our server, Lisa, was so awesome. Totally took care of us. And when she found out that my wife was preggo, she made her a early morning food bag.. So went an extra mile.. Awesome!!

Ended up at Motif after the two other restaurants that are also part of the St. Regis were all booked up. We got a great table on the patio area but unfortunately I was too short to be able to see the view over the big balcony ledge (my husband explained to me it had to be so high due... More

We selected Motif as it was the only restaurant open in the hotel this evening. We were seated and provided a menu with only five entree items listed. However before we could order the Maitre' D came by and exchanged the menus which now included only four entree items and three starters. The only explanation was they were no longer... More

Went in for a casual breakfast but turned in to one of the best dinning experiences. Our server's name was Edouard and he was nothing short of fantastic. Although French toast is not listed on the menu he had the Chef make for us, we also order the chilaquiles which were the best my boyfriend had ever had. Highly recommend... More

beautiful spot for breakfast or lunch- we had breakfast, got the buffet on Sunday. It was expensive but the million dollar view made it totally worth it! Food was healthy & delicious. Service was great of course.
