The Loft is first-class restaurant in a first-class resort hotel, but I’m giving this a 4-star rating due to two glaring (literally and figuratively) issues related to the patio dining (specifics below). First of all, the food quality, location (superb coastal property), view and service are all tops. The wait staff is both highly knowledgeable and attentive; they fit right... More

In addition to enjoying meals at the Loft, I always enjoy the special events they have, such as champagne tasting and - at this time of year - making gingerbread houses. From little to big kids, this is a joyful occasion. We big kids had a wonderful time orchestrated by the creative and friendly assistant pastry chef Julia Brown. And... More

This past Saturday night we celebrated our anniversary with dinner at The Loft. We were seated outside with a beautiful view of the Mosaic pool and grounds. A starter was the very unique salad with thinly sliced apples and a perfect dressing. The lettuces resembled ruby kale. My entree was the New York Steak with a delicious Jack Daniel sauce.... More

We have been staying here at the Montage and really enjoy the creative eggs dishes at the Loft. Note: some are big enough to split! Complimentary coffee and tea from 6 to 11 is a real plus! They do a pretty good job of blocking the begging seagulls too. We haven't been here for dinner but have heard good things... More

There are two major restaurants at the Montage Hotel, Studio (a whole evening, expensive restaurant very worth the price for a special occasion or on a large expense account) and the Loft. The Loft is a much less formal, excellent restaurant that competes well in food quality with almost any restaurant on the planet, in my experience. It is family... More

We had lunch and shared a couple of things. The waiter was great to accommodate us and the food was excellent.

This is not the highest end restaurant on the property, rather one with a great ocean view, comfortable surroundings and an attentive staff. I took the wife here for her birthday, asking for a candle and piece of cake when I made the reservation. Also mentioned that this was a birthday again as we were greeted and seated. The meal...

We experienced excellent service at the Loft. It is a different experience from the Studio, the fine dining option at the Montage. The Loft is light and casual, but dignified, offering amazing views of the ocean and the pool area below. There is a beautiful patio, and tables are set up to take advantage of the amazing views. The wine... More

The only mistake I made was ordering the French fry sampler for myself. There were three types of fries- steak, waffle and shoestring. All three were delicious but the amount was humongous.

We had breakfast and lunch here a few times. It is a nice casual place with good food and great service. The blueberry crepes were just right. They were light and delicious. You are overlooking the pool and the Pacific.There is a seagull that watches over the diners.
