Nice lunch or dinner spot in beautiful St. Regis hotel

Very nice spot for lunch or dinner with great views. Food and service both great. We enjoyed a very nice dinner and found the wine list very impressive too. Service was outstanding.

I have had some disappointing experiences and meals at the Monarch Bay Club, Club 19 and the Lobby Bar at the St. Regis, so when I had the opportunity to try Motif at the St. Regis I was tentative. However, I ended up being pleasantly surprised with both the food and service here. We were greeted by a lovely hostess,... More

Breakfast tasted good. It just took ages to get the table cleaned off, get a waiter to take my order, actually get the order (they said the kitchen was overwhelmed), and then get a check. Nobody stopped by to ask how my food was. My iced tea was never replenished. I understand there was a major political fundraiser going on... More

Family dinner was a disappointment based on Trip Advisor ratings. It was average all the way. We had to wait for an outside table., although the restaurant was not very busy. The service by server and assistant was mediocre. No sense of service from them. Salmon, and halibut were a little bit lonesome on their plates. Taglionli was cold and... More

Absolutely fabulous food, beautiful location and the staff is the best. Don't miss the Sunday Brunch as it is the best we have ever had. Ana, Enrique and all the staff at Motif are so nice and everyone goes out of their way to make you feel very special.

I loved my experience here! My server, Enrique, was on top of everything and very accommodating. The food was so rich and delicious, it was easy to overindulge!! I would go back again for sure. Thanks for everything Motif!

This restaurant features fresh, quality ingredients with layers of flavor to enhance their natural essence and presented beautifully. However, what we will find ourselves talking about in the future is the stellar service we received by our server, Steven. When he asked if we would like wine we told him that my husband has to be very particular with his... More

Friendly atmosphere, enjoyable environment, pleasant attitude from management. All waiters were ready to serve from a first minute we came in. Floor manager was so kind to explain all the purposes, ingredients and nutrition fact for each dish.
