The Montage is absolutely beautiful. A lovely place for a drink or dinner. We sat on the balcony for a few hours then went to the Loft for dinner. Dinner was delicious and delightful. Great service and great food.

We walked in for a birthday brunch and were seated right away on an outside table overlooking the pool and ocean. The staff was fantastic and attentive. The Loft Omelette (egg whites, spinach, wild mushrooms, pepper boursin and garlic, breakfast potatoes) was nice, but the apple and mascarpone crepes STOLE THE SHOW! Warm and not too sweet, with vanilla and... More

The Montage is a beautiful hotel decorated as a warm, homey beach house. The Loft decor continues that feeling, with an ocean view. I just wish the food and service continued the nice experience, but it did not. The wait staff and manager were inattentive. The food was mediocre at best. It was an expensive dinner to not be impressed... More

I ate here twice with my 2 young children. We ate outside both times and enjoyed the view of the Pacific Ocean. On the second day of breakfast here we spotted a bunch of dolphins playing in the ocean. For the first breakfast here, I ordered the children's breakfast plate with scrambled eggs, bacon and hash and sausage and then... More

The warmth of the hotel decor benefits the restaurant as well. The view is beautiful but the food just so so. The ginger carrot soup was regular and the ravioli was average as well.

I booked The Loft for my husband's birthday lunch on a Sunday. I didn't realise that it would be a brunch menu, we were hoping for steak/salad options but in the end it was perfect. We started with a petite seafood platter and then shared a main meal, which the restaurant kindly split into two plates for us. The service... More

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
