I really don't like to rate a restaurant average but if I do it's because I judge the restaurant on the price for the quality of food it serves. I stayed at the St. Regis and decided to eat at this restaurant because I expected it to be amazing, unfortunately it wasn't. We order 2 filet mignon for 36$ each... More

This restaurant has it all: Location is on the beach, nice for pre- and post-dinner walks; great food; and good service. We went twice in a two-night stay!

Excellent food, service, view and atmosphere. I highly recommend Motif. Our breakfast was delicious. Next time I stay at the St Regis I will eat here again.

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.
