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...

The LOFT is located within The Montage Resort main building. They have a main interior dining room but also an adjacent patio if you care to dine outside - you can see that HUGE pool as well as the ocean. Food and service are excellent.

The Loft at the Montage serves excellent food, goes out of their way to please (half portions are available), has a varied menu and excellent wines, and has seating out of the balcony overlooking the water. An expensive, but worthwhile splurge.
