Great ambience, dynamite menu and wine list. If kobe beef is available, order it! The service is exceptional. This is definitely a special occasion restaurant. The private dining room is perfect for special events (10-16 guests) Studio is one of my favorite places to dine in Orange County. Cheers. AT

Great Food! Fantastic service like you don't find anymore and impossible to beat the view when you are sitting outside, especially at sunset over the Pacific. Also has a spectacular wine list. Like everything, there is always a drawback --- big bucks. But for special occasions you can't beat it!

This is my 225th review. I really wanted my review to be something special so I held this one from my July 4th weekend. As you can see from my previous review of the Montage’s Loft, this was my second visit back to the beautiful Montage Resort. The Montage is set on an oceanfront bluff with sweeping panoramas of the... More

We flew in to So. California from So.Carolina for a surprise birthday party. The keynote event was held at Studio. The restaurant did not disappoint. It covered all the bases — friendly low-key staff, attentive but not intrusive service, fabulous location in the Montage property in Laguna Beach, elegant but not stuffy surroundings, indoor and outdoor seating was available (we...

This is a very romantic setting for a dinner at sun set. The staff is everywhere and nothing is left to chance. We ordered the 6 course tasting menu for 130 USD per person. We chose not to pair it with the special wines recommended by their sommelier. The venison was our favorite, but the agnolotti and halibut was also... More

Views- amazing, Restaurant Ambience- Relaxed Luxury, Drinks- good, Food- Ok, Prices- High. Avoid the Lobster Bisque- its awful. The menu is small and the portion sizes are even smaller. Be prepared to order room service after you eat here.
