We had our breakfasts at the Loft each day for 5 days. The smoothie is excellent as is all of the other food. The dinners were also remarkable good. The service and wait staff are exceptional. Well done.

Got to say the food was tasty, but the view is overwhelming. One of the best view ever. The service and the cleanliness of the restrooms...you wouldn't want leave them afterwards. Luxury.

Well I retired last Friday and thought we should go out for my special occasion and was not disappointed at all with the Loft. The deck is overlooking the Pacific and the pool at the Montage resort. I choose the Trout with walnut butter and my hubbie got the Halibut with lobster sauce. Ny trout melted in my mouth and... More

We stayed at Montage and enjoyed our breakfasts sitting on the patio overlooking the pool and ocean. From extremely healthy ( smoothies, granolas, egg white omelets to more substantial, the breakfasts were delicious! I don't think I have ever seen croissants that large!

My husband and I ate dinner and breakfast here while staying at the hotel. The dinner was OK. The cheesy bread was the best part though. I had the U10 sea scallops that were chewy and overcooked/burnt with a cauliflower mousse that had a weird taste to it. My husband had the artichoke soup and loved it. For breakfast I... More

We heard about the cheese board they serve and certainly can't missed it when visiting Laguna Beach. The cheese sommelier was very attentive to ask some questions about what we prefer and she put together a selection of cheese pairing with wine to start our evening. It was delicious and we end up just eating cheese and only a soup... More

We're staying at the Montage for a month and stayed here for a few weeks three years ago. Loft has deteriorated. A ludicrous "show off" wine list with hundreds of bottles at several hundred/thousands of dollars but few in the late tens/early hundreds. The food was tasteless and overhyped. This is a place whose menu writer wants a literary prize... More

dinner entrees were $35-45. The food was delicious,but I have had the same quality for less. The braised short ribs were a bit too salted. The oysters were delicious and the charcuterie plate presentation and food were on spot. We have been here twice, but I think I have exhausted my own interest in the small menu choices and will...
