We went there as a passenger on the trolley bus told us it was a good place to eat and grab a drink. Lunch was good. My partner had the Green Tomato Burger and I had a Cob Salad. Our waitress/server was a lovely young lady called Brittany. She was happy to help out in anyway she could.

We dined at The Loft for my husband's Birthday while staying at the Montage. Our server went out of his way to make certain our steaks were delivered the way we ordered them. My husband ordered medium rare New York steak and I ordered Filet medium. His came out medium and mine came out rare, rare and rare! I couldn't... More

We had a wonderful time celebrating my nephew's birthday at the Loft. We were seated on the upper deck and as mentioned it has a gorgeous view of the ocean. It was happy hour and there were great drink specials. There were some specialty drinks that were just amazing. I believe mine had grapefruit juice and vodka and another had... More

Bacon chevre pizza appetizer was wonderful, the Arugula calamari salad was just awful. Steak frites - average, fries good. Basically a nice place to come for a bite in a pretty location looking over the water but the foot itself is very expensive and very lack-luster. I overheard the table next to us (a group of 4 visiting from Paris)... More

The Loft is a must-see restaurant in The Montage Resort in Laguna Beach. Nightly rates can be pricey, but well worth the money, From ocean-view accommodations, to an elegant dining experience, to a relaxing pool and Jacuzzi area at bar-side at The Mosaic Lounge. Inquire about sunset times and enjoy the sunset from the cliffs in Montage gardens.

While staying at the Montage, we invited family members for dinner at The Loft. We weren’t trying to impress, but we soon discovered The Loft stands out as one of the top dining venues in Laguna Beach. Our waiter was genuinely interested in ensuring a perfect dining experience and he did. Our entrees, including the New York Strip steak, Wild... More
