Nice inside/outside dining. Lunch items were pricey with large portions, almost like splitting the choice is anticipated. Three types of french fries with three sauces was interesting as a starter. Large enough to share among four people. Excellent tomato soup with very large grilled Emmanthaler cheese sandwich. The sandwich can easily be split for two. Otherwise, for a big eater.... More

We arrived at The Montage kind of late in the day after a long flight and drive from NYC. We tried to get a dinner reservation at The Studio (the resort's fancier restaurant) but the earliest they could give us was 9 pm and we were jet lagging, so we tried The Loft instead. Honestly we didn't have great expectations... More

I know I know who goes to the Montage and orders a steak, you go to a steak house for that but I was feeling it and I ordered the sushi as an appetizer so I was happy. First of all the steak was amazing it was rubbed in expresso grounds or something either way the flavor was outstanding. Got... More

Had Christmas dinner last night at the Loft. Had 5 o'clock reservations so we could see the sunset. Unfortunately our window seat was situated in such a way the actual sunset was blocked, but otherwise the view was spectacular. Service was outstanding--very courteous but not pushy. Wine selection excellent. I had elk, which I couldn't believe was even on the... More

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
