We are food snobs to just introduce ourselves and this was one of the best experiences we have had in the U. S. and Canada We wanted to try everything but only had two appetizers: Beet salad-delicious with the hazelnuts and fresh sheep feta, and Lamb sliders-tender with a beautiful cheesy puff pastry with fresh herbs....perfection! Our entree was the... More

We've visited three times and I will say first time was awesome. The other two times were just off. I am not a negative person but I will speak if I don't think its good. This happened our last two visits and the management gets a tad hostile. I understand not wanting to hear bad news about your place but... More

The Loft, their staff and their food were all that they were written about and more. Chef/ Owner Kali Fieger is a genius. Everything we ate we swooned over. The butterfish surpassed our expectations. My husband, who rarely eats fish, loved it. Our waitress, Joanna, went above and beyond. Her knowledge and service were fantastic. And we had a window... More

Went here based on other Trip Adviser reviews and they were exactly right. You go here for the food. The Butter fish was the best ever and the rest of the menu not far behind. Scallops were excellent and far from a skimpy portion. We have had a great lunch there on a previous trip, dinner was even better.

This would be my forth visit to The Loft, first time with my wife (for her birthday!) and again it was simply great. It's hard for restaurants to retain good staff out on the coast (just read the reviews of Redfish down in Port Orford) but the staff at The Loft are as great as the food so it's a... More

We were lucky that evening as we were offered a table without booking. It was last table before 7pm when afterwards the place was crowded. The food and service was very good and the dishes were well interestingly presented. We had good view of the ocean eventhough our table was not by the windows. The only snag was that the... More

We enjoyed every bite - from the beautiful large scallops, melt in your mouth butterfish, to the outstanding desserts - we didn't share this time - his- lemon tart; hers-goat cheesecake! The view of the marina is nice; very pleasant & helpful waitress, background music to our taste. One of the best restaurants in the upper $$ that we have... More

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!
