Yum, the small plates list read like a dream and the service was a delight. Dress up a bit and feel like a millionaire even if you are not. The totality of the digs will make you feel that way anyway. The bartender in The Loft was well versed in the art of shmooze and a top rate mixologist. Can't... More

Wonderful Restaurant in the Montage Hotel Laguna Beach, with a stunning view of the coastline. Came here with family (5 of us) my choice of venue to celebrate my birthday, we were seated on the Balcony, however we had to get relocated indoors after an hour, due to bees swarming around our table. Of course no ones fault. The lunch... More

Delish coffee-crusted sirloin steak and Caesar salad. The service is wonderful and the view impeccable. Highly recommend!

Make sure you reserve a table on the patio/balcony overlooking the ocean. The prices are a bit high, but the food is exceptional and the chef came out to explain the drinks, the appetizers, and each meal that was being served. Our group orders major meals and all of them were perfect.

As many places that we have visited or stayed The Loft is more than anything you would ever want. The location for one is a reflection of being on an island.

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.

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
