“Beautiful hotel and restaurant”
Reviewed September 19, 2011

The hotel is really gorgeous in every way. The set-up, view, grounds, beach restaurants are impeccable. The food in Mosaic Bar and Grille is good, but very overpriced. I wanted to go to this place very much, it's very nice, but to go several times it's not worth it. The lunch menu has dinner menu prices.
Go enjoy the beauty, see the hotel it's worth it.

“Nice setting but overpriced”
Reviewed August 18, 2011

We chose Mosaic for lunch during our last stay in Laguna because we knew the setting would be lovely. We also knew it would be expenseive; we don't mind paying for quality and service. To begin with the valet parking is a big mess with not enough space or valets so it takes way too long to drop off your car. We had a lovely table for lunch; I ordered a salad and my husband had a burger. Both were very good even though the salad was $19 (without adding chicken) and the burger was $24. The salad came with just that - a salad. I asked if I could have some bread or crackers and was told that they did not have any because they had not received today's delivery - REALLY - no bread or crackers in the entire hotel???? The service was OK but we had to ask for drink refills which should not happen at these prices. Then they supposedly validated our valet parking but there was still a $5 service charge AND we had to wait a long time for them to retrieve our car. Later we had dinner at the Ritz Carlton and the difference in service and attitude was night and day. I will return to the Ritz but probably not the Montage.

“Beauty on the beach!”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

The Montage Resort in Laguna Beach, California has got to be one of the most gorgeous properties on the entire west coast. The Mosaic Bar and Grille here gives a visitor to this wonderful beach city a chance to bathe in this beautiful resort atmosphere for the day, afternoon or evening. Yes, the menu options are pricey, just like the hotel, but the attentive staff makes it all worthwhile. I was there with my daughter to celebrate her having turned 21, so the splurge was worthwhile. Our late lunch was not rushed, and having arrived after 2 p.m. mid-week there was not a tremendous crowd, but most tables were full. We savored specialty drinks that were deliciously mixed with reputable labels. The club sandwich was deliciously prepared and served with a very fresh salad. The grilled chicken sandwich was generously plated with perfect sweet potato fries. We could easily have split just one entree sandwich and ordered an appetizer. The portions were that generous. Day parking is valet only and is $10, but the grill validates your parking card which reduces the parking by half. This makes $5 parking a deal for the chance to enjoy the Montage gardens, the emerald blue-green waters near South Laguna, and even a chance to take a stroll on the beach, below, after dining. I will definitely return to the Mosaic Bar and Grille and look for an opportunity for a stay-over at this first class hotel. Overall, this establishment is the epitome of beauty on the beach!

“Good lunch, but very expensive”
Reviewed August 18, 2009

Mosaic is a casual restaurant on the grounds of the Montage Resort. It serves a nice lunch or casual dinner. The price is pretty high for lunch, $20+ for most dishes (FishTacos, interesting burgers, etc.), but the location is in an elevated spot with views of the water. Some of the seats are around the pool for the spa and are a little quieter and more secluded, which is nice if that's what you are looking for.
