A real let down....

I went to the Montage on Sunday with a friend for OC Restaurant week. The time with my friend was wonderful, but the resort/restaurant was really quite horrible. The valet is a mess. We waited probably 10 minutes for the valet's to clear the array of cars and when we arrived at the drop off... read more

We went here for OC restaurant week. Made reservations on opentable.com. Lunch was $20 for 2 choices each of appetizers, main dish and dessert. The view is 5-stars, service by Rose is friendly and efficient. We enjoyed the mushroom bisque with the complimentary bread basket. Pork bolognese was a good lunch size, very tasty as well as the chicken curry... More

The ambience, service and cuisine at this restaurant are all exceptional. The menu offers a variety of wonderfully crafted indulgences. Our party of 7 was delighted with the quality of our selections...everything was perfect. The wine and bar list is quite extensive. The service is exceptional. There was live entertainment the evening we were there; a guitarist and singer who... More

This restaurant was worth the resort plus pricing just to sit on the balcony and look out onto the beach and hotel grounds! We all tried something new for breakfast, and everything was delicious. The staff was kind and accommodating with the kids, too. Service was spectacular! Every server was helpful and friendly.

Enjoyed a wonderful formal plated Sunday breakfast here with family recently. I had huckleberry crepes filled with lemon curd. Very well done and delicious. Service was attentive and professional. They also have a wide array of Eggs Benedict variants, with crab, vegetarian, Canadian bacon and other meats. The baked goods were also excellent. The setting in a craftsman style dining... More

This restaurant has incredible views of the ocean from the 4th floor of the Montage. Their breakfast selections are incredible (that is the only meal we had there). I tried the Huevos Rancheros - excellent, the salmon - instead of a bagel I had rye toast, the Parma Breakfast which was fried eggs on top of some fried prosciutto and... More

Food is excellent and the service is just as fabulous. The Avocado Tartine and Moroccan Mint smoothies are a must!

The heated porch was comfortable on a coolish night. The limestone lettuce with pumpernickel croutons was sensational. Did not think lettuce could get this good. Shared the Faroe Island Scottish Salmon as an entree which enjoyed. The full moon rise was an encore.

What a great view! I felt sorry for the wait staff though. They had to carry all our food from the kitchen downstairs. Otherwise, the food was great. The service was great. The atmosphere…did I mention the view?
