A few friends and I ate at Motif for dinner one night during our stay at the St. Regis Monarch Beach, and overall, I felt it was a good restaurant with good service. Originally, when I arrived on Sunday morning, we attempted to eat here for brunch, but they were fully committed with a line out of the door. Apparently... More

The bread and batter had zero flavor. It was missing vanilla or sugar or cinnamon or all of the above. The sauces were outstanding! But it was like trying to hide the taste of cardboard. Disappointing when you pay $80 for breakfast for 2. I will say the view of the property from the restaurant is GORGEOUS!!! and I really... More

This review is for lunchtime at the Motif Restaurant (not brunch), I took my mother to celebrate her birthday here in December.It was a nice SoCal December day. It is a beautiful resort. The entrance makes it feel very grand. The food was very tasty, although not very large portions. Like most fancy places...you get a big nicely decorated plate... More

With most of our family far away we decided to go out for Christmas dinner. Of course one expects fewer choices and a pricey experience. Using one of our credit card services we made a mid-afternoon selection at one of our favorite past special places, the Stonehill Tavern at the St. Regis Monarch Beach. Armed with our reservation we valet... More

The setting was wonderful and the staff very good to work with for our family dinner. We all tried various food options and loved each one. On the beach, great sunset, just a fabulous place.

This is my first review on trip advisor. I went for my 12th anniversary to enjoy the brunch with my family and I have to say that I think it is the best brunch I have ever had. For starters the property is very lovely and the views are breathtaking! But over all The food was amazing! So many choices... More

While staying at the St. Regis, I took my family here for breakfast several times. The food was very good and the service as well. Beautiful view while eating. One waitress did seem to disappear briefly but long enough to frustrate me. I've been here for Sunday brunch which is great too.

Took my best friend from Phoenix to brunch here. The food is amazing. She loved the variety of foods. We had a nice window seat indoors. There is a nice two piece band playing music. Adds to the ambiance. The waffles are decadent. They also have homeade crepes to order, a french toast bar with thick egg bread. You can... More

We brought my Mom here for her birthday brunch. We've been to several different brunch buffets in the past and this one is really worth it for $69 (w/out alcohol). Outdoor seating offers amazing views of the resort, golf course & ocean. They offer a nice variety of food and amazing desserts. The service was probably one of the best... More
