Anniversary dinner at this fabulous restaurant. Southern California coastline is full of fancy restaurants that fail to impress and merely try to attract customers based on location / view. This was our first time at this place and we were unsure given the tall expectations of anniversary dinner but much to our delight the Studio delivered a strong performance. Service... More

We came here for our 10 year anniversary. They gave us a pretty crappy table, even though there were a few tables with great views available (which, by the way, never became occupied during our dinner). The food was good, but not outstanding, which it probably should be for the price. The service was good, but a bit over-the-top for... More

The restaurant is located at the Montage Resort. It has spectacular views of Laguna Beach. I love the lounge area with a fireplace right outside the restaurant where you can lounge, sip champagne, watch the sun set, and enjoy the breathtaking views of the ocean. The service is hands down first class...impeccable! We got the 9-course tasting menu. Everything was... More

Perfect location especially if you are outside. Some truly incredible dishes and some so so and that should not be the point given the price point. Plates were not warm enough for outdoor eating as well. Wine is just too over priced. superior service

We ate here during our recent stay at the Montage and the Studio lived up to its reputation as one of California's best restaurants. The food and service were simply awesome. As soon as we sat down, delicious bread and three types of butter were brought to the table, one of them made from goat milk. Never had butter made... More

What an experience of over the top service, food, and hospitality!! My wife and I just celebrated our 25th anniversary at The Studio and we were overwhelmed by the quality of service and food.

We had dinner at The Studio while staying at the Montage. The service was excellent as was the food. I had heard a lot about the restaurant, and it lived up to it's reputation for fine dinning. The location out on the edge of the water is very nice, but at this time of the year when you arrive for... More
