You are upstairs, so the view is great. The food is creatively presented (the kind you photograph first, but not tiny portions and not piled too high to eat without destroying). The restaurant is small and the tables are next to an attractive bar. The atmosphere is adult, and I highly recommend leaving children at home. Four of us had... More

One of the best places, period! This unassuming location is home to a rare find anywhere, but especially the Bandon waterfront. The Butterfish was exquisite, Beef Filets tender, the Beet Salad was made with some of the freshest feta I've ever enjoyed; each bite was as surprisingly good as the former. I can't stand goat cheese, but the server earned... More

We had an amazing dinner all around. From the Salmon Crudo through heirloom tomato salad and butter fish entree everything was delicious. The service was excellent and staff knew the wines on their list helping to make for a perfect pairing. We will be back!

Wow, what a find! My boyfriend and I were in Bandon for a weeks vacation and happened to stumble upon the Loft and oh am I glad we did! We started out with the Salmon Crudo special ( thin cut raw salmon on a salt block) it was literally like silk in your mouth. Never in my life have I... More

The food is amazing. Absolutely delicious and made with love. Beautifully decorated with the best ingredients. A must when in Bandon. Reservations should be made since it is small and often full.

Just dined again last night at The Loft. Went with three friends (from New York and Palm Springs) who had never been to The Loft before. They couldn't stop talking about the food...presentation, flavor, service, etc. They were just at the end of a two week trip from LA to San Francisco and said this was by far the best... More

Fabulous food and service! We are on vacation and have come twice - and plan to return. The steak tartare is out of this world! BUTTERFISH ...... You must try it. If you are lucky enough to have the chef make you the salmon dish, don't pass it up. After an incredible dinner we had the goat cheese cheesecake -... More

This restaurant had excellent food and service the evening we visited, surprisingly uncrowded for 7:00 on a Saturday in June. Our reservations were not needed. We shared the crabcakes, beet salad, butterfish, one nice pour of wine, and the cheesecake and lemon tart. Everything was beautifully prepared and served--best crabcakes and lemon tart ever and they are favorites I often... More

We had reservations for Saturday night, came in, ordered promptly (including starters) and waited 90 minutes for our entree to be served. While we waited, we noticed other tables come in, eat an entire meal including dessert and leave. But for most people the service was beyond slow. The table next to us also waited 90 minutes without getting dinner... More

We apologize that this reviewer did not enjoy his/her meal at our restaurant. Our chef and kitchen staff work extremely hard to ensure that food is served in a timely fashion to all of our guests. Unfortunately, on those nights when we are fully booked, wait times for receiving appetizers and entrees can be longer then we would prefer. Every... More

The almost part was our fault. We had a late lunch so we only came for drinks and appetizers. I ordered the corn and crab chowder and my husband ordered crab cakes. We agreed to split the lamb sliders. The corn crab chowder was so delicious--filled with sweet onion, perfectly cooked celery and spices--that I had to fight off my... More
